A rest day for me from exercise, however, no lie-in as needed to be up and at it as I had lots to do today.
Today is International Women’s Day #IWD and so I spent the day celebrating women in my life who have supported and encouraged me when I needed it the most. I used Instagram to raise up others.
I attended a lunch networking event with 150 or so women from Lincolnshire to again celebrate womanhood. There were 4 incredible women speaking about their story, journey & life lessons. The emotion and energy in the room at times was palpable. A truly inspiring event.
It made me reflect that sometimes I need to celebrate myself and who I am beyond how I look, this is not something I find very easy at all, especially at the moment when I don’t feel as comfortable in my own skin as I would like and my confidence is so tied up in how I look, it shouldn’t be but it is!
I’m writing this post through tears as been feeling that I’m wading through treacle most days, just trying to hold things together as well as moving forward in certain areas of my life so don’t feel like I have much to celebrate right now! My views are possibly clouded due to the fatigue which is why I often will make the effort to shout about other people’s (mainly women) achievements as I never want anyone to feel how I do sometimes.
