Positive Week 5 - Women

In honor of International Women's day this week's positive goes out to all those strong badass women in my life.

"The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights," says world-renowned feminist, journalist and social and political activist Gloria Steinem.  While today celebrates that struggle and the results that came from the effort of those who fought and continue fighting.  Today, and really every day, I want to celebrate the strength, love, and passion that women can provide each other every day.

It is through the important women in my life that I gained a deep passion for the life that we live. It is through these women that I am motivated each and everyday to push my mind, body, and soul to the next level. It is through these women that I strive to soak in all the beauty that life provides. It is through these women that I learned to smile through the discomfort and to always believe that the best is right around the corner. It is through these women that I was reminded to believe in myself and through that found the ability to pull out a strength I didn't even know was there.

There is so much strength in women and it is amazing what can happen when they come together for one common cause; to love, believe, and support each other.

To all the amazing women in my life (from my beautiful mother, strong sister, dedicated friends, strong athletes and every women out there, thank you for constantly providing me with the desire to set the bar just a little bit higher and for always pushing me to be the best I can be.
