If we must celebrate a day for women, let us celebrate freedom from stereotypes, from expectations. Stop congratulating women for being the secret behind a successful man... Start saluting them for being successful. Stop telling women they are beautiful. Try telling them it's not important to be beautiful! Stop praising her roles as mother, wife, daughter, sister... Celebrate her as an individual, a person, independent of relationships.
I know I’m not easy to love. I’m a chronic over-thinker, I overreact more than I should…And every once in a while, I might be a little insecure. But if I am in love with you, I can promise you wholeheartedly that you will be loved with so much passion and intensity that you’ll forget what life felt like before I came along. You will always be cared for and you will always have someone in your corner.
It is important that we take the time to celebrate even our small victories.
It's time to take a step back and realize that instead of focusing on all that we're not getting done, we should be focusing on all that we are getting done. I call this the Celebrate the Small Victories approach. This will make for a much happier existence, boost your self-esteem by placing focus on the positive and likely make you even more productive.
