In Praise of Women: Half the Sky

< inspo home

I don’t normally like to get “preachy” with the Flüff audience but something arrived in my inbox this morning that moved me deeply. I feel compelled to share this with you.

Gratitude is one of the driving forces in my life.  So much so that I wear a perma-necklace everyday and every time I touch it I remind myself to be consciously aware of all that I have to be grateful for.   One of the most incredible things in my life is that I was born a female in our wonderful country.  There are very few countries in the world that provide women with the opportunities that we have.  I have been educated, traveled, built many businesses, own real estate, am a mother and a step-mother to 5 wonderful children, share my life with a man that treats me as his equal and have an abundance of fresh, nutritious food and clean water.  It has always saddened me to think of our “sisters” in so many other countries that couldn’t even imagine this kind of life. Knowing this has always left me with “what can I do to help?”

As I said, this morning a video was in my inbox and I thought perhaps this is a way I too can make a little bit of a difference.  Please take a moment to watch the brief video or click on the picture link above and maybe together we can make a bit of a change.
