International Women’s Day has been observed since in the early 1900’s – about the same time women started riding motorcycles Coincidence? I think not.
With a well-entrenched history of standing against the status quo, women riders of today have much to offer as role models and change agents. When we find something as precious as the rewards that come through riding, it’s too good to keep ot ourselvesand we need to share it so others can experience the same thing.
How better to celebrate this year’s IWD theme of Connecting Girls, Inspiring Futures.” Living a full life, leaving a lasting and positive legacy, living our dreams….these are goals that most of us share. Then life gets in the way, we lose sight of them and time passes. It’s good to stop, take stock periodically and make sure we are actively encouraging others in their journey. Maybe our influence can ease the way for them.
This article by Dan Blank particularly resonated with me and I hope you find it meaningful too. He’s addressing writers but it applies across the board. Thanks Dan.
A full article on Connecting Girls, Inspiring Futures will appear on this blog on March 12.
