Almost everyday, I read an inspiring story about women challenging the status quo, and paving the way for our generation to rocket right through that glass ceiling. However, I sometimes catch myself focusing on the big moves women are making that I forget to look around and celebrate those around me who are doing great things.
I’d like to celebrate my local dry cleaning owner. While I’d imagine she isn’t making very much, I can tell she loves what she does and that’s inspiring. Not to mention, she has a way of making my day every time I arrive. Her positive energy is contagious and I’m planning to bake her cookies and send an extra big holiday tip to try and show my appreciation.
Whether it’s a stranger or someone close to you, if you had 5 minutes out of your day to share why a woman you know should be celebrated — who would that be and why? Also, any ideas as how to show appreciation is much appreciated.
