The weekend that united amazing people around the GTA

This past weekend has been such a wonderful experience in my life. I had the opportunity to bring a dream alive, in partnership with over 200 incredible people, most of whom I had never met before. They included beautiful, fresh-faced young girls, inspiring cancer survivors, courageous men who made up the minority of the female dominated group-making their presence all the more special and heartfelt, teachers whose dedication to their job and their students is truly life-changing, families of 7 people, and women from all walks of life. Each person contributed something special.

I am certain that my friend Erika was looking down from above, casting her radiant glow over the dancers in the Toronto Eaton Centre. I certainly felt her presence when the music started and my fellow-dream-makers broke out into dance. At just the right moment the sun burst through the atrium above-lighting up the dance floor and all the dancers on it. This event had so many of Erika’s favorite elements; children, friends, music, dancing and plenty of smiles.

As this transitions from a dream to reality, I truly believe that together we can inspire 1,000,000 people around the world to recognize 1,000,000 amazing women. Everyday we are influenced in some way by the women in our lives; either as a mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, daughter, wife, teacher or friend. We do not need to look to the pages of magazines or on television to find our

sheroes – they are standing right along side us-gently encouraging us, guiding us and demonstrating through their own example, how to live life with meaning and gratitude.

It’s such a simple thing really, to tell the women who inspire us how we feel, but it is truly so powerful. That one simple gesture could change someone’s life forever-I know it changed mine.

I look forward to hearing the stories of the amazing women you know.

One person CAN make a difference…that person is YOU!

With love,
Inspired friend xo
