This has to be the most spontaneous blog post I’ve written till date. But when inspiration strikes, it is hard not to write.
Today, the 8th of March is International Women’s Day.
There is a woman in each of our lives. Mother, wife, sister, daughter, mother-in-law, daughter-in-law, grandmother, granddaughter, niece.. the list seems to be endless.
Nothing makes me happier than seeing the world slowly starting to respect a woman. My heart swells with pride looking at so many women going on to achieve what was considered impossible for a woman to do. Millions of women are shattering the glass ceiling and achieving great heights of success.
With that, her responsibilities have only increased manifold. She has to juggle so many roles, personal and professional. Be it looking after her children, her parents, as well as meeting deadlines in her workplace, she has so much to get done within 24 hours. And the cycle repeats each day, leaving her little to no time to spend on herself.
This Women’s Day, I urge each one of you to share the load with the women in your life and give her some space to enjoy a few quiet moments with herself. Treat her to some well-deserved rest, even if it for a few hours each week.
After all, she is a human being too! Rather than giving her expensive gifts, give her your time, your respect, and some space. Women do love these small gestures rather than material things.
Let this respect not be restricted to just today. True respect lies in realizing her worth each day in your life.
Happy Women’s Day to all the lovely women who are reading this. You are special. 🙂
