I love travelling seeing different places in the world but in this day and age to be anything exceptional am I expected to leap tall buildings in a single bound (sorry Superman) or travel the world alone for a year, or even accomplish something at a younger age, than any other woman has ever achieved. To be extra – ordinary do I truly have to ‘compete’ and I use the word consciously, with others to be exceptional.
There have been many women I have met in my lifetime that I believe to be truly exceptional, maybe not for their physical abilities – they may not have climbed Mount Everest or rowed the Atlantic – yet their extraordinary attitudes to the difficulties that arise within their lives, how they cope with the situations and predicaments they find themselves in and the inventive ways in which they use themselves to enable their daily living to continue, brings forth in me a desire to salute them.
In this I include my close friends whom I cherish and hold dear.
I can name three women who live their everyday lives, quietly going about their business, that I know in their own way and in their own worlds are extra-ordinary…
Can you name three?
