Congratulate, Commemorate, Celebrate!

In South Africa, August month is declared women’s month and August the 9th is celebrated annually as National Women’s Day. National Women’s Day celebrates the strength and resilience of women and their contribution to society and country. This day in South Africa commemorates a significant day in our history. In 1956, on this day, 20 000 women marched to the Union Buildings to protest against pass laws. These laws were made to control the movement of people of colour during Apartheid. Women still have to fight for their rights, we live in a world rooted in gender inequality. Achieving and promoting gender equality is a critical element of the prevention of violence against women.

My thoughts are driven towards celebrating life, perhaps because I recently celebrated a birthday. Let’s celebrate one another and in the process eradicate inequality.

Show appreciation through honouring and respect, congratulate…

Erase inequality and replace it with lasting fond memories, commemorate

Focus on appreciation and recognition for all that has been done, celebrate!

I believe in God, love and life! Married to my friend, mentor and rock. We have been blessed with two beautiful girls. My personal journey provides opportunities for me to empower individuals to lead better lives. I have had a real desire to work with people for a long time and have always been fascinated with human behaviour and understanding how the mind works.
I love the following quote by H. Jackson Brown, Jr. “Remember that children, marriages and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get”

Thank you for sharing!!.. hope you have not only a Happy Women’s month but every day as it should be and a belated Happy Birthday, hope all your presents, and the day, were filled with love and happiness!!.. 🙂

Until we meet again..
May flowers always line your path
and sunshine light your way,
May songbirds serenade your
every step along the way,
May a rainbow run beside you
in a sky that’s always blue,
And may happiness fill your heart
each day your whole life through.
(Irish Saying)
