Welcome to March. That's so weird to say, isn't it? As we cruised into this third month of 2016 (and into the last month of the quarter) I pondered for quite some time on one thought: Women are superheros.
Maybe we don't morph into Superwoman with a single twirl, but there are so many women doing things that were deemed "impossible" just 50 years ago. I took a deeper look just at the amazing women in my own #Chickspiration network and I was instantly inspired. My bestie (and the other half of our #FitChicks series) Brittany Giles started FitXBrit.com after she had her daughter and decided to help other people reach their fitness potential, CNK Gang chicas Valerie Des'rae and DJ Kitty own their own beauty businesses, our friend Tanya is helping people across the country achieve financial freedom with her site MyFabFinance.com, and our home slice Melissa of loveMYCC.com is blazing an amazing trail of creative inspiration with her #blkcreatives initiative. I could go on and on, but the point is this: women are building their own futures everyday. That is such a thing to celebrate.
March is Women's History Month and while it's imperative that we celebrate those women who, through their struggle and sheer will, paved the way for many of us - I think it's also important to really take a beat and learn from the women who are finding success on their own terms right now, in this very moment.
It's important to really take a beat and learn from the women who are finding success on their own terms right now, in this very moment.
So, this month we'll see the return of our CNK Closets series where you'll get to meet a rising star in the music world and a woman who is stitching her way to a better future. You'll meet a woman who is letting her magic lead the way. You'll hear more from me as I learn and grow on this GirlBoss journey and we'll CELEBRATE the women who, just like us, are trying to make it.
This month is a #Chickspiration celebration dedicated to our past, our present, and our future. Super powers do exist and all of us have the potential to inspire a new generation of women to do more and leap farther than we do. Let's give them something to celebrate.
