And then it’s Monday morning and your alarm goes off at 4.01am. It’s time to get up and plan. Plan how your day and week will be. Plan how you are going to juggle a full-time job with your dream job hustle. Decide how you are going to be strong and confident, and a kickass woman, and still have kindness and tenderness in your voice and actions.
You are definitely not expecting to have tears in your eyes when you open your Facebook and get immediately attracted by one of the mightiest women in your lifetime. Oprah Winfrey is walking up to the stage of the Golden Globes award. And up there, waiting for her with a proud smile, is the sweet and also mighty Reese Witherspoon, holding her Golden Globe.
I mean, you had something else to do than to start your Facebook spree, right? But wait. It’s OPRAH WINFREY! I can’t NOT watch. Of course you press play.
And then, as she speaks… the tears, which in my case lately can only mean that I’m on the right path to something amazing. Tears are a sign, you may wonder? Yup. They are. And also the thousands of butterflies in my stomach whenever I think of all #themightywomen around the world that are still to be discovered and awarded by those around them; in their communities, in their workplaces, in their homes.
Who are they? Where are they? What are their strengths and why are they mighty and amazing?
This is what I want to find out. And here’s how you’re going to help me:
During the month of March I’ll be running a series of Mighty Women features: 31 days, 31 mighty women. They will also be featured in The Mighty Women online magazine!
Who are mighty women: they are women who somehow support other women, and empower them, and help them grow and become better versions of themselves.
