International Women's Day 2014

Been ages since I posted anything on my blog and it only seems appropriate that I officiate my 2014's blog postings on a day as auspicious as today - International Women's Day.

Seriously it is no JOKE being a woman!

The amount of weight that is carried upon our shoulders, the amount of struggles we face be it momentarily or a lifetime is by far unimaginable and every one of us have our own unique story to tell or kept hidden away, that makes us all a hero of our own book!

Couple of days ago, I wrote on my FB that "When we take life as a VOCATION and not a perpetual VACATION, we'll discover the meaning and purpose of our existence."  I wrote this in close reflection of my own life.

Have you sat a moment and thought about what your purpose is or are in this world? Is it to raise the next President of the United States or is it to die giving away your entire savings to an NGO because you found no sibling or family or friend worthy enough to be your beneficiary? (True events of 2 women in the past.)
Which ever it may be in the spectrum of happiness and sadness, I hope you discover what you are meant to be, and take pride in your vocation because as it's said, "A life lived for others is a life worth living," I don't think any of us are made to live for ourselves. We are in one way or many, made to be at the service of others - family, friends, strangers... and if the need arises to ask yourself "Why me?" as cliche as it may sound, ask yourself "Why not?"
There is good in everything that happens if we just let ourselves see hard and clear enough.
Therefore:
celebrate your womanhood as a gift to mankind,
celebrate your womanhood as a gift to yourself,
be proud of who you've become as you stand before God for there is no greater importance than to please God ultimately as this gift of being you is bestowed upon us by the Almighty.

You are ENOUGH and you are as powerful as you allow yourself to be.

Happy International Women's Day to all you gorgeous and strong women of the world!!

Cheers Ladies!
