Happy International Women’s Day to women around the world. This day was founded in Copenhagen in 1910. The United Nations began celebrating International Women’s Day on 8 March 1975. By 2014 women across the globe were encouraged to unite. Today we celebrate our diversity, strength, and optimism while still pushing for equality. You go girls!
To your fellow woman:
Enjoy your day by embracing everything that is WOMAN.
Happy book launch day – Having it all at Fifty Plus Innovation Edition
Though we are probably flooding (south-east Queensland is coping the tail end of Cyclone Debbie) it’s nice to wake up to an important email that has made my day. (Sometimes you just have to ignore the weather – okay I can’t really do that because this is serious. Stay safe people and ‘if it’s flooded forget it’).
The chapter was a difficult one to write but I’m glad I did. As a writer you are vulnerable because you’re often baring your soul. I find that I keep a journal in my head and quite often it needs to be written. I make sense of the world this way.
I hope in doing this I give readers insights, motivation, inspiration, gratitude, ideas, encouragement, guidelines, compassion and new ways of thinking.
Having it all isn’t the same for everyone. You may want a new car or house, or you want to learn a craft, write a book, start a business or kiss a grandchild. Whatever ‘having it all’ means to you, it would be nice if we could all have it all at fifty plus.
