Happy International Women’s Day! I know this day can be pulled in a million different directions of social, economic, cultural and political greatness that women have accomplished in the past and hope to continue in the future. While this is obviously worth celebrating and then some, the greatness that came to my mind was the strength that makes up all of you. The greatness that is all of the women who are fighting to save their marriages. Or the ones who have rocked their life after divorce. The ones who didn’t sign up for this path, but are overcoming it like a champ. The ones who take it (whatever it is) and handle the heck out of it. Today we celebrate all of YOU, my superheroes.
One of my favorite quotes by the dear Elizabeth Gilbert seemed perfectly fitting for this day:
“The women I love and admire for their strength and grace did not get that way because shit worked out. They got that way because shit went wrong and they handled it. They handled it a thousand different ways on a thousand different days, but they handled it. Those women are my superheroes.”
