'Tis the Superwoman season (Mother's day is May 12th).We want to giveaway our "Strong" shirt and necklace to some very special Superwomen. Know any Superheroes that should be on a pedastal? I bet you do! We all know those special women in our life, the true super heros. They do the self-less, thankless work, they are ones that raise energy of our environments with their campassionate work. We know their struggles, their fortitude, their courage to overcome, their generosity, their selflessness, their genius, and their strength. Many times our sisters (biological & non-biological) provide us with the strength to keep our heads up when times are rough. They have the ability to inspire us to follow our dreams and do more good in the world. Here is your chance to give them that "Shout Out" and nominate them in the comments section under this blog where they'll be entered in a draw to win our Super Pack!
This shirt is our version of a Superwoman costume — embodying strength, yet remaining feminine. You don't expect your hero to wear a cape and spandex (thats just NOT her style), but you DO want her to know that you think she has super powers! She can wear our shirt that subtley spells out "STRONG" and it can remind her of her strength whenever she wears it, yet nobody else needs to know. It's a message to her, not the whole world.
It's time to tell your Superwoman that she is a force of goodness in your life. This shirt can remind her enough to set more goals, overcome her own struggles and banish her doubts. It's time to thank her for the times she has provided that kind of support for you especially when you needed it most.
Meet My Super Heros!
1) My "twin" cousin Louise is an intenstive care burns-specialist nurse, who has overcome some SERIOUS medical conditions herself. Lou's countless stories of saving burn victims bring me to tears and break my heart. Lou is a true Superwoman in my eyes and I'm so grateful for the work that she and her husband do. Medical professionals are truly the most noble people in my book. Lou inspires me to want to do more, give more, and help more people. Thank you Lou! (Oh and Lou some how made it from Dubai to Dublin and over to Beijing to support me running in the Olympics!) Look at her son, what a cutie :)
2) My good friend Mylene is a generous, self-less, super talented chef and artist, who also just happens to be the kindest person alive. If you know her, you know I am NOT exaggerating. This lovely lady has worked with the most severely mentally challenged people in our community for almost 20 years!! I take my hat off to her and her selfless work, and thank her for the light she shines. Currently Mylene is off in the Philippines volunteering at an orphanage and teaching young girls. She's a little living saint :)
3) My mammy has worked since she was 13 years of age! A self-taught entreprenuer, my Ma ran her own Chipper (Irish fish and chips restaurant) for about 15 years. Now she works with the elderly doing daily caretaking and providing real genuine loving contact. Never afraid to speak her mind, this STRONG lady probably could have been a professional golfer in another lifetime!
There are many more super strong women in my life, and I know I am very lucky to have such great role models. For example my coach Noreen O'Reilly spent gazillions of (unpaid!!) hours coaching me, and driving my friends and I up and down the length and breadth of the island of Ireland in the name of competition and running! What a legend.
My aunt Lilly never wed but that hasn't stopped her from having a strong hand in rearing every child in my extended family at home in Rathnew, Ireland. She is always there for each and everyone one of my cousins and every little child just adores her sweet singing voice, generosity and kindness.
Now its your turn! Tell us who your heroes are!
We want to hear your shout outs, your notes of gratitude, your support and your belief in your Sisters in Sport & life. We have 3 "Believe I Am Strong" super-soft, organic, and sustainably made "Superhero" shirts to give away and 1 GRAND PRIZE of a Super Strong Gift Pack which includes an Erica Sara "Strong" necklace and our NEW version of the "Believe I Am Strong" shirt (a tank top—coming soon!)
