Everybody dreams. Whether we are poor, rich, young, old, men or women, all our hearts have deepest desires that we hope for. A woman seldom has opportunities to chase her dreams, as she puts those around her ahead of her own self. Being a daughter, a sister, a granddaughter, a wife, a mother, a friend, an aunt; she wears her many hats with ease and makes a difference to all the lives she touches

This women’s day, we decided to pay tribute to the women around us by identifying what they truly wish for and dream about.

D - Discover her true potential

Every woman is talented and it’s just a matter of time before she discovers what her true calling in life is. It is easy to get carried away with the demands of everyday life and forget who we truly are, or what we love to do. Give the woman in your life a chance to find out what she truly loves doing, and encourage her to pursue the same. She might want to restart the music or dance classes she pursued as a child, travel and explore new places, or start her own cooking or baking business. Support and motivate her to follow her dreams.

R – Respect

Respecting women do not need a day. It is something that must be practiced and become a way of life. Treat the women in your life as equals and value their inputs. Most women love a chivalrous man. Hold the door open, carry the bags home from the car, and offer assistance regardless of gender. Being chivalrous doesn’t make you subservient, but instead shows your deference.

E – Encouragement to chase her dreams

When a woman dreams, it is not always that she goes after them immediately. She takes into account other factors like the family and societal pressures. If a woman truly loves something, give her the wings to fly and pursue her dreams.

A – Appreciation and Recognition

Never demean the role of women in the running of the family; whether they are staying at home moms or they work outside. Managing a household is not an easy task. Balancing work and home are even harder. Appreciate and compliment them often, even in their absence. Sometimes that little bit of recognition can go a long way.

M – Me Time

Women these days do it all. Juggling the house, a demanding career and nurturing family ties seldom leave them with time or energy to focus on themselves. Give your woman the opportunity to take time off to focus on her needs and pamper herself. It might be just to take a walk, read a book, catch up with a friend, visit the spa or just sleep. Everybody needs a break to bounce back and feel refreshed and rejuvenated.

So what are you waiting for? Go on and make the women in your life feel special. A few words of appreciation, a bunch of flowers or even a hand written note can all go a long way in showing them you care.
