Greetings, dear readers!
It’s International Women’s Day and I’m thinking about women who stand out. Especially the ones who didn’t really intend to – not really… but. But there was something meaningful they just needed to grab onto all their courage and stand up for. You know what I mean – there are some things so important you are willing to wear the sparkly hat and go public, because people need to know about that, do something about that, remember that, and you don’t care what you look like doing it.
I bet you’ve done it. You’ve stood up, maybe on shaky knees because you don’t like being noticed, but something inside said, this is too important to hold back. You got out there to that public forum, that 5K, that fundraiser, that microphone, and did what you don’t normally do because there are some things too big for your inside voice.
Shout it. You got this. We all have our sparkly hats. You’re rockin’ yours.
PS. My sparkly hat moment is an annual walk to raise funds for breast cancer research and survivorship. It is close to my heart because more than one woman close to my heart has been touched by breast cancer. So shy me, the person who won’t even wear nail polish or bright lipstick, gets her sparkly on – in public and all over her person – for a cause.
What’s your sparkly hat moment? I’d love to know – drop in a comment and share the awesome causes that make you step in front of your fears!
