It was an interesting day in history. #understatement

The 45th President of the United States woke up in the White House and millions of women around the world united in one the biggest showcasing of solidarity since the 1970s.

Add to that the usual Canadian news stories (housing market, gas prices, taxes, violence, etc.) and it’s easy to forget how great it is to live in this country. So, to remind everyone that the power of positive thinking is stronger and more beneficial than dwelling on negativity, here are three things to do before you go to sleep tonight regardless of your age, gender or political affiliation:

  1. Ask yourself: Did today matter to you? Why? Why not? Can you see how the world around you is making a difference in your own life? In the lives of others? If you could do today over again, what would you do differently to ensure our world is a better place?
  2. Send love: Regardless of whether you joined in any of the marches, tell your mom, sister, aunt, boss, colleague, etc., that you know they are equals, they are awesome and you support them wholeheartedly. It really isn’t hard: Send an email. Endorse someone on LinkedIn.Write an old fashioned thank you note and buy a stamp. It’s a win win for everyone.
  3. Mark your calendar: Let’s regroup on International Women’s Day — March 8th, 2017. We really want to hear from you: How can we all help make things better — for not just Canadian women but for you? Write us at editor@notable.ca
