The theme of IWD2021 Is to choose to challenge.
I have copy pasted from the IDW website the following.
A challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change.
So let’s all choose to challenge.
How will you help forge a gender equal world?
Celebrate women’s achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.
So my thoughts on IWD 2021.
We should challenge ourselves to live a great life. A full life. To expand our horizon every day of our life.
We should be a source if good and encouragement to all if society. We should uplift ourself, women, children, men and humanity. For when we are all uplifted, good, whole, and caring; then humanity is lifted, and no bias , no inequality will remain, and the world will be fair and just.
It starts inside of me. Do I have good thoughts for myself, for others outside of my life, my family, my colleagues, neighbours, others in the world, for all human beings? If I am broken inside I share that with the world. I add to the bias and inequality of the world, as my negativity or selfishness will stop me from being good inside and out.
So the challenge is to be an angel,a lighthouse, a source of such good for myself, that I am naturally good to all. In my eyes an angel is a powerful, strong, pure, good being, that no dirt can touch. An angel is an inspiration of goodness and a spiritual strength that banishes the evil , the unfairness of the world.
The biggest sadness I have on most days, is when women suppress other woman. We are already fighting a battle of inequality, why do we hurt each other.
The other sadness I have is, when we women live a small life and don’t gave the courage to live by the truth and stand up for what is right. Let us stand up and challenge this in us.
The third sadness us, we don’t respect ourselves enough. Our strengths, our goodness, our potential. Keep loving yourself and excel at life everyday of your entire life. Don’t give up on you.
Challenge and Change your life and be an example for yourself and others. Don’t put yourself down. Rise. Raise, be the best always. Be better than who you where yesterday. Be good to yourself and all. Fix you and we fix the world. When I am full I can give. Become full and give whilst growing, you will grow faster and well rounded. Have thick skin, and learn to be selective in what you allow in your heart. Be humble, not arrogant. Strong, wise and discerning. Pick your battles, and it is okay to walk away at times.
Celebrate yourself as a women and all the great women in your life.
Happy International Women’s day.
