International Women’s Day : Today’s Real Women open up about what freedom and happiness is to them!

I am so freaking excited to bring you guys this Women’s Day special article! It is so special because I had the opportunity to talk to some brilliant and beautiful women about what freedom and happiness is to them! Every one deserves to be free and happy. But the reality often tells a different story! Whatever hardships women face at home or at their work places, today is the day to let go and celebrate the spirit of womanhood and, appreciate the fact that we have come so far in life despite the circumstances! Time to give a pat on your back, ladies! 🙂 I personally take the conscious effort to put aside all the issues that are lingering around and focus on the brighter side of things. Today we talk about only positivity!

I asked a few women a simple question: What is happiness and freedom is to you? And, my god! I got such wonderful answers that reflected the person’s strong emotions with those words. There was a common thread in many of the responses that I received. Almost all of the women felt that their freedom is their happiness! Some said freedom is NO interference, or as simple as to be able to choose what to wear! Some said it’s about equality and, happiness for a few are their dreams!

Such beautiful responses! I could not accommodate all here but trust me I read every little response that I got over DM or twitter or FB, you name it! Now, let’s get a glimpse into the minds of these amazing women right away! 🙂
