Having a second birthday during COVID-19 has given me a lot of time for introspection. So, here…
The other day a woman walked into a doctor’s office and issued a demand that summed up why the world is in such a mess.
“Look, I know I got a million things wrong with me, but I really don’t want a lecture,” she announced. “I just want a pill that will make it all go away.”
This poem has been said to have been written by Maya Angelou, but it is written by none other than the brilliant Pamela Redmond, New York Times-bestselling author of more than 20 books of fiction and nonfiction, including the show that I binged watched, Younger, when COVID started last March. It’s an honor to have her personally share her poem with us on EricaDiamond.com today in honor of International Women’s Day.
Today, March 8th, marks the 105th anniversary of International Women’s Day, a day that honors the fight for our rights as women– to end hunger, end poverty, end domestic violence, fight for gender equality and rally around each other as women.
You all know how much I love a great quote, but I have never put together a compilation of all of my favorites in one post. On this day, on this blog, over the years, I have honored different women for #IWD. I have spotlighted trailblazing women (both known and unknown), but today I will keep it simple. I would love to share a page full of my favorite inspirational quotes for women.
These productivity techniques will keep you on track and happy.

Yes, 2014 is about ACTION. This year, we’re not just talking – we’re walking our talk. And it’s gonna be powerful. This year, we’re DREAMING BIG.
