I have been using this hashtag for over a year. This is because it represents what I do (as God lives) and what I believe people especially women should be doing.
When I saw the theme for the IWD 2015, I was like yes, we are on the same page.
Make it happen means different things to different people. To me, I started using this hashtag because I felt that, to be able to make a difference in your life or the world, you need to get up and go make it happen. This goes for both women and men. Even with the disappointments in life, you keep it moving and go and make it happen. No one does you any better than you and you are the best at what you do because you are unique in your own way.
As sisters, we make it happen, as mothers we make it happen, as wives we make it happen, as employees or bosses we make it happen. We make it happen one way or the other, so why not continue to make it happen.
Although we still have a bit further to go in us making it happen in prominent places, like the government and other sectors, but its starts with us. It starts with one woman reaching the top and helping the other woman and other women get to the top.
As we celebrate the International women’s day, I celebrate with all the women who are daring to make it happen. I celebrate the ones trying to make it happen, I celebrate myself too, as if you don’t love yourself first no one will.
In all of this, remember that no one holds the key to your happiness but you. Decide what you want to do, write the plan out, put a map out and make it happen.
Don’t be afraid to also ask for directions, there are women and men out there that will be willing to advise you to a slightly smoother journey. No one said it would be easy, just go out there lady and make it happen.
