Women. Mothers. Daughters. Sisters. Aunts. Cousins. Nieces. Girlfriends. Fiancees. Wives. Friends. A woman assumes many titles and roles in her lifetime, most of them often come unpaid, with a lot of work involved that is hardly written in the job description. A woman often does what is necessary, not only for herself, but those who she loves and keeps within her inner circle and close relations. A woman could complain a lot more than she ever will, and yet, she does what she needs to do, often sacrificing her time and happiness for the greater good of her family.
A woman may be filled with a certain amount of uncertainty and fears, or struggles of pains and suffering, but oftentimes, she will hardly let another soul know. She takes on the tasks and burdens that no other would ever think of. She does what she needs to do in order to make the lives of others easier, without them ever really knowing just how better their lives are because of her. As a mother, her sole duty is to protect and raise her children, and see them through to their adult lives, often ensuring that their needs are above her own. There is no amount of repayment other than that of love that could compensate a mother.
Around the world, the stance of women is hardly any different, as in a way, it is in a woman’s nature to feel her biological need to try and make this world a better place, far greater when she leaves it, then when she entered into it, either through herself or by properly raising her children to continue on the work she intended. The history of women is one that must be taught, must be learned, and must be passed on. To acknowledge the achievements of women is to pass on the knowledge to future generations of men and women.
While you may honor the women in your life on their birthdays or on special occasions, it is important to remember that they think about you and honor you regardless of the occasion, whether it is your birthday or a special day, because women are the magical beings in our world, who go above and beyond in duty, even if there are no expectations. Today is March 8, Women’s International Day, which recognizes women. The month of March is deemed Women’s History Month, to honor women throughout history. You are here because of a woman. You exist because of a woman. You are who you are because of a woman. Appreciate and love every woman in your life because you are important to them just because you are in their life.
In honor of International Women’s Day and Women’s History month, Confessions of the Professions spent time investing in women last year, to obtain a gift from women to women and men of the entire world. This gift to you is historical in its own right, being the only book ever written containing the story from at least one woman from every country in the entire world. This knowledge will be your knowledge and a piece of history for you to cherish in your life. The memories and lives of women may be for a brief time in history, but the writings and books containing knowledge and wisdom, so long as they are kept alive, can be passed on to the living for an indefinite amount of time. Thus, presented to you, the My Life As A Woman Project. Grab your copy of My Life As A Woman: World Edition and pass on this book to your children and your children’s children, as it is a gift from every woman in the world to you and your family.
