Wow, this year is almost over, and it’s gone by like *snaps finger*. I cannot believe the days are flying by so fast! It has been full of fun times though, and I include some work assignments in that 😉 I wish you a marvelous 2018 ahead ♥
Here are some of the inspiring words you’ve shared with us in this final week of 2017 at your blogs:

On my last girls’ (or should I really be saying women’s) night out we got to talking about schools and the rights and wrongs of labelling ‘boys’ and ‘girls’ separately and what that then led to. One of the discussion points was segregation in school sport and the fact it was based on sex not size or ability. The girls always seemed to get second choice of the sports field or equipment and had virtually no opportunities for competitive and team sports outside school grounds. Girls who were competitive or physically strong were odd and not celebrated. Compare this experience to the boys where sporting prowess and a competitive nature were desirable characteristics. They had several teams and competed against other schools. It sets a president about how kids view themselves and, certainly for ladies of my generation, set an expectation (or lack thereof) about our sporting aspirations.
