Today, October 11 is designated the Day of the Girl. Wanting our girls to be smart, have fun, make wise choices, be confident, fulfil their potential and on...natural goals for parents and grandparents in this new complicated world of social media where privacy is a rare commodity. 'Watz Up Girlz' is a great enjoyable place to start for young girls (Mums too) - htpp://watzupgirlz.com- "Girls run the world. Be what you want to be."
And what an ideal week to wind up with this special day! The week that Alice Munro won the Nobel prize for being the 'master of the short story' - there's a role model for us. She is the first Canadian to win this prize and one of only 13 women ever to win.
And...the week which celebrated one year since the Taliban shot Malala Yousafzai, a 16 year old Pakistan schoolgirl & education activist. Far from silencing her, this terrorist act brought world wide attention to the plight of Pakistani girls and made Malala the articulate poster girl for human rights and education.
Thanksgiving weekend is the appropriate time for us to be grateful we live in Canada where we can freely be inspired to be the best we can be. Celebrate the harvest season and enjoy the conversation along with the turkey round your dinner table.
Best wishes and safe travels for the holiday weekend. And remember, when it comes to real estate, we have you covered!
