Each year on 8th March is International Women’s Day – the official website explain it “is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.” So to celebrate I’m sharing with you a poem I wrote about the power of a woman and a post giving you a dose of female empowerment that can encourage you any day of the year!

Throughout my creative work journey, I have used words in many ways to express myself and to give others a platform to express themselves too. So it is only right, that the way I try to express the emotional rollercoaster I’ve been on through the written word and creative means of poetry and creative prose.

This week marked ‘International Women’s Day’ & ‘Mother’s Day’ ~ Day’s for celebrating all things woman!
A lot of people concentrate on the wonderful job we have of carrying human life form inside us, being a mother, a life-giver, a wife, a homemaker etc. However, if you are single and childless do not feel any less of a woman or feel uncelebrated, unrecognised or insignificant! These days ARE for you too!!
I decided to write a poem to encourage those of us who are single and childless to still embrace days we feel highlight our ‘don’t have’s’ and instead celebrate all that we do have – after all we still have the power of being a woman! 😉

‘Never Judge a Book by Its Cover!’
Poem & Prose by Helen’s Journey
Have you felt unjustly judged in life, in work, in relationships and friendships?

I hope this poem will be a reminder for us all, to look at how we conduct ourselves on a daily basis and to be aware of how we generally treat other people.
Sometimes we forget just how much our attitude towards others, can affect them internally in ways in which we are oblivious. This poem is a reminder of that!

Today marks the 1 year anniversary of my Grandad Mac dying. He lived to the mighty age of 99 years and 2 months old.
Today I had a choice. I could wake up and only focus on the heartache and pain from missing him and once again get dragged down into that dark pit of sadness.
Or I could wake up and make friends with the grief, in order to feel more than the sadness I already know.
How to deal with grief in a positive way:
