Today is International Women’s Day, and I couldn’t help but reflect on how many wonderful women I have been blessed to know in this lifetime. Most importantly, I am blessed to be the mom to three of those beautiful women. This month is also Women’s History Month so each day I will be sharing either about an event that women are holding, a woman-owned business, reintroducing you to my girls ( they each get a separate post) and also giving you a brief glimpse of the women I admire.
Today I am doing just that. Anyone that has followed me for a while knows that I was introduced to my dear friend Molly from Still Being Molly through a group she created for local bloggers Trifabb. Over the years I have enjoyed getting to know her and I am not going to lie she is one of these people who I totally stalk their instastories. But that isn’t why I wanted to highlight her and why I think she is like Meghan Markle.
Like Meghan, Molly stands strong in her beliefs. She is a fierce fighter for fair trade and ethical workplaces. She isn’t one of those people that just throw money at a cause. She is so passionate that she actually volunteers her time raising awareness. She does this through her blog, Still Being Molly and through her podcast, Business with A Purpose.
She is not one to just sit back and not say something when a wrong occurs. She is the first and last in the trenches. When the Trifabb group were having their regular meetups, there was always a local charitable organization that it would team up with to help out.
And like Meghan, Molly has had it rough the last few years. I know you are probably thinking how has Meghan had it rough- but despite her being in the royal family- she has dealt with family turmoil. In a way, Molly has done that as well, she lost two babies in her second trimesters in the last year alone. She has learned to rely on God and now shares her story with other women. Raising awareness and letting others that have lost babies know that they are not alone.
And the last reason why I think Molly is like Meghan is that just like Meghan, Molly stood up to the political status quo at a young age to petition for change. Just like Meghan did with Proctor & Gamble.
So you see even though England has their royals, we have ordinary people who are royal in their behavior. And Molly is definitely one of them.
