Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored. ~ Earl Nightingale
Women fascinate us here at Graceful Grit. If you have been following us, you might have noticed this already in our articles. In the last two weeks, we expressed our personal admiration of women from every walk of life: Life coaches, friends, judges, grandmothers, and CEOs – all of them women worthy of emulation. Each of these women has had vastly different life experiences. However, they all had at least two similarities: They were women, and they were American. It is fascinating how different life can be for people who, at least in some ways, have shared connections. That is what Graceful Grit is exploring this week. How the lives of American Women are both similar and unique. We think that you will recognize yourself in the stories our authors share and reflections of their lives as American Women.
