I am so happy reading all of your entries and I canâ€™t help but celebrate with you virtually! I must say, I really enjoyed reading all of the entries and it made me realize that there are a lot of things worth celebrating for! Everyone is indeed a winner.
Hereâ€™s a virtual toast to all of us celebrating the goodness of life and all the challenges that made us stronger!
For the winner of the Belle De Jour 2011 Power Planner, I picked the answer that struck me most, inspired me and I bet will inspire many women in the world She gave out a very powerful message that instantly made me feel good about myself. I want to quote her entry and share it to more people.
I guess one thing that I realized in my life that is worth celebrating is my womaninity. It is one thing being a mom and wife in this day and age, and quite another to still be your own unique self after the tags (teacher/ driver/ yaya/ companion/ cook/ cheerleader/ financial analyst/ quack doctor/ masseur etc.) has been attached to your name. It is because of the fact that I am a woman that I tackle all these humongous tasks and more with sassiness and flair, even adding to them my own brand of individuality.
I know for a fact that I am more than my place in my family, my job and my other responsibilities. I am that pink streak in the clouds that is more promising than the silver lining. I am that pink cotton candy in this big â€œcircusâ€ called life that makes it all sweet and dandy. I am that hot pink neon sign that radiates brightness and happiness all around me. I am that pink ribbon on your chest that makes you aware and involved in causes that affect not just me but a hundred or so ladies. I am me, a woman. And that is more than enough reason to celebrate.=)
