Today marks the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day! I am so very grateful in my life to know amazing remarkable creative women who make a real difference each and every day.
This afternoon I am attending an event to celebrate the anniversary where women are joining together in enriching, informative discussions and workshops. The event is hosted by our local Women in Business.
I think the famous passage form Marianne Williamson's book is appropriate on this day!
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
Happy 100th International Women's Day!!! Shine today and light the world! Debra, CEO!
