International Women's Day made my head spin.
In a good way.
All day I thought about my daughter and stepdaughter.
I thought about all the opportunities they have. The options they have. I wondered where they will go with their life, whether they will climb the corporate ladder, jump on the entrepreneurship train, stay home and care for their kids, whether they will even have kids, whether they will go the traditional route or step outside the box.
As I said in this instagram post, the bottom line is they can do whatever they want.
I also said in my Instagram post that the one thing I want to make sure they know, is that surrounding themselves with a supportive group of likeminded women is KEY.
Because it really is...
Surrounding yourself with positive, supportive women who believe there is enough success to go around can make all the difference in the world!
But there is something else I wish for them. Something that I am starting to realize JUST how lucky I am to have.
My husband has always been my biggest fan. Since day one, he showed me a kind of unconditional love and support that I didn't know existed. Unconditional love and support that I fought, doubted and thought was too good to be true, until one day I realized that THIS is what true love is.
I've always known he was my biggest fan, but over the past few weeks he's really stepped it up. What I mean is that he has stepped out of his comfort zone, he's said YES to things I never thought he would say YES to, he's taken time off of work to support me in my endeavours... and when I start to doubt myself, he's the first to pump me back up and encourage me to go bigger!
THAT is what I want for the girls. Not just a community of women who have their back, a partner who shares their dreams, even if it's not something they completely understand!
As important as it is for women to support women... it's important for women to be in a partnership where they are supported and encouraged.... even when its an endeavour that seems wild and crazy!
Speaking of Husbands... next Friday I'm releasing an exclusive video on The 10 Conversations That Every Stepmom Should Have With Their Husband. The list comes straight from The KICK-ASS Stepmom Project and I've been told that your fellow stepmoms think it's one of the most valuable parts of the program.
