March 8th. The day to celebrate women worldwide, your way.
The First Time it was recognized as a Day to commemorate was back in 1909 the same year my Memere was born. Incidentally it was originally called International Working Women’s Day.
According to the official website “International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.”

There are gatherings, telesummits, Social Media posts and graphics galore.
I am choosing to celebrate 3 ways.
- I am practicing one of my favorite self-care and grounding activities for myself. Talking my dogs for a long walk in the woods. It’s a Gorgeous day for a hike.
- I am sharing my friend and colleague Marta Stanczyk’s heartfelt poem with you below. She shared it on stage a while back on another International Women’s Day Celebration and made the ladies weep. I hope you enjoy it.
- I am offering a Coaching Special in honor of the day. Do you want to feel free? Are you ready to live life on your terms, not based on what someone else thinks you “should”? To get in touch with your true desires for yourself, click here.
How will you choose to celebrate yourself? Other Women? The day?

Marta dedicates this poem to all women everywhere – yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
