The Riviera Woman Rocks

The Riviera Woman Rocks

This March women all around the globe come together to celebrate. We take stock of who we are and how we feel about ourselves. March 8th is the day dedicated to International Women's Day and it is the perfect opportunity to reflect on the achievements and goals we have conquered.

Women have made great steps towards gender equality both in society and in the work place and we will continue to raise awareness campaigning and mentoring our future generations, so we have a nation that is tolerant and accepting. Be mindful and remember the great women who gave so much so we have the status we enjoy today! Come and join the Professional Women's Network in Monaco for lunch at the Tavolo Restaurant at the Columbus Hotel. Full details are HERE.

and once we are aware, we cannot help but change. - Sheryl Sandberg

March marks the time we welcome spring signifying all things new. Warmer and longer days are here and it's wonderful seeing everything springing to life! On March 31st the clocks go forward by one hour and then we really know summer is on the way!

March 1st, today, is St. David's Day (Patron Saint of Wales), on the 5th it's time to get your frying pans out to make pancakes for Shrove Tuesday. On the 7th March is International World Book Day. The 17th is St. Patrick's Day (Patron Saint of Ireland) And on the 20th March, Spring Equinox Day (First day of spring).

Every day is in fact a special day! Embrace it, live it, love it!

As part of my ongoing life training, I have become a Dementia Friend. As a Celebrant this gives me a better level of understanding of those who may need a little more help from time to time. If you know someone who may have dementia, then you will appreciate how important it is to be patient and be able to listen.

Exciting times... as I am busy preparing all kinds of celebrations. I look forward to creating your ceremonies, full of love, about you, for you! Please go to my Facebook Page and 'Like'... Thank you! Facebook/AnnaFillCelebrant
