Today is International Women’s Day! These words came to me and, well, I always listen to the voices in my head. I posted in on Facebook then thought, hmmm…..I think I’ll add it to my collection and put it on my blog. Because why not? I also started a new job TODAY so this woman is feeling pretty proud of herself right now! #proudwoman
This year’s theme is #choosetochallenge. I challenge notions, ideas, beliefs. I challenge my mind, my body, myself; and I challenge others. I even wrote a BOOK about challenges! (#bookplug, get you a copy of my book – 12 Fitness Challenges for 12 Months: Go from ordinary to EXTRAORDINARY in 30 Days or Less – on Amazon). Sometimes it’s about challenging your view of the world and how you see other people.
“A challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change. So let’s all choose to challenge. How will you help forge a gender equal world? Celebrate women’s achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality”. Source: https://www.internationalwomensday.com.
Guess what? I’m an international woman. I’m a British born, to Nigerian parents (British-Nigerian!), I live in America and I work for an Indian Multi-national company. I’ve think I’ve just covered the major CONTINENT groups of the world! #phenomenalwoman

I was feeling inspired today on so many levels! I had a break to recharge for my first day and I am CHARGED. I spent a few days in Arizona hiking the great outdoors, very socially distant compliant too! This gives me an opportunity to tell a story…. as I do!

That’s me done….for today.
