Monday: My Mother: 23 years ago this amazing woman finally had me after suffering from preeclampsia. I was 11 weeks early and weighed 2 pounds, and despite all the suffering she went through prior and the health conditions I had when born, she never gave up on me, and I truly believe that it was her spirit and love that I survived. Since then she has shown me independence, an open mind, patience, tolerance, and has encouraged me to follow me dreams and passions, having never never let me feel like any less of a human by my gender. She is one of the strongest and positive influences in my life, she is a remarkable woman, she is super woman! I celebrate her everyday, but today I felt the need to take time out of my life and illustrate exactly how much she means to me!
Tuesday: My Nana: My nana has taught me independence and creativity, from a young age she always encouraged me to be imaginative and outgoing, which I think helped me progress into being as inspired and empowered as I am today. She is a woman full of confidence and light, she has brought so much positivity and happiness into my life! I will be forever thankful that I get to call such a great and strong woman my Grandmother, having raised 3 boys and one daughter who have all grown up to be amazing and successful people who admire her dearly inspires me so much to one day be like the fun and wonderful woman she is!
Wednesday: My long lost sister: Meet Madeleine, my best friend since 2003! Unfortunately she is in America, so I can't surprise her with a card or flowers, but I couldn't celebrate all woman who have positively impacted my life and NOT write about my best friend! She is absolutely the most hard working, dedicated, down to earth, most beautiful girl ever with the best sense of humor who has shown me that perseverance and an amazing work ethic is important to get you where you want to go in life. This girl studies 24/7 and still manages to surround herself with amazing friends and have fun, she has always shown me the most positive and bright outlook on life, even when she is down she still cheers everyone else up she just omits an era of happiness to everyone she meets, she is so strong, empowered, inspiring, and just generally an amazing woman!
Thursday: My Aunt Elaine: She is possibly THE strongest and most positive woman in my life, her amazing attitude towards life is uplifting not just for me, but for everyone else she meets! she is the kindest most genuine woman I have ever met, and without a doubt deserves the world and more! no matter what she's going through, she still manages to maintain this amazing positive attitude and hope, she is just so beautiful inside and out, and I wouldn't be who I am today without her, who has taught me to always hope and have amazing self discipline, so THANK YOU AUNT ELAINE! she seriously are an inspiring role model in my life!
Friday: My Best Friend: This confident and intelligent woman has been my best friend since I was three, she has brought so much laughter and happiness into my life, and has always had my back and stood up for me. She is a huge part of who I am today, and is not only passionate about what she loves too, but also understanding. She is beautiful inside and out, and I just wanted to thank her for being the inspirational and strong woman she is!! love you Marisa!
