“To tell a woman everything she cannot do is to tell her everything she can do.” – Spanish Proverb
Though today is International Women’s Day, I celebrate being a woman every day I wake up. I believe that each woman is a self made piece of art all in their own way.
We all have a story in our eyes that has brought us to this day in our lives. For me, there is a fire within me that encourages me to be all that I can be, not only for myself , but for future generation of women in today’s society. I want to inspire others and encourage them to do anything they set their minds to and to embrace all that life has to offer.
I know what I want and I work hard for it. Where ever you are in your life at this moment, be proud of your accomplishments and give yourself credit. After all, who runs the world? ….Girls do!
Here’s to all the women in my life who support me whole heartedly and who inspire me every day to be the best I can be – Thank You for being a part of my journey and for your unconditional love!
And to the men in my life who support, love and respect me in all that I do – I truly do love you!

This post is dedicated to Merle Donawa, the woman who took me under her wing at a young age and showed me the ropes of running a real estate office and how to be strong in a man’s world. She was both tough and loving to me and treated me as though I was her own daughter. I often called her Mom, because that’s the kind of love she showed me. Coincidentally, she was born on March 8th. xo
