Mommy's project: leading

So i was challenged by this week' mommy's project topic- Leading...

So I do what I do best a few random thoughts on leading.

I found a site dedicated to National Women's Hall of Fame.
Here is a little blurb from their site to engage you.
Showcasing Great Women. . . Inspiring All!

Welcome to the National Women's Hall of Fame - the home of inspiration, innovation and imagination. We invite you to learn more about our work and find out how, together, we can honor great women of today and yesterday, while shaping the leaders of tomorrow. Thank you for helping us carry our mission of "Showcasing Great Women...Inspiring All!" from Seneca Falls to the world.

There are 247 women inducted into this hall of fame- here is the mission of the hall.

At the National Women’s Hall of Fame, our mission all day, every day is “Showcasing great women…Inspiring all!”

We are achieving our mission in a variety of ways while preserving our historical roots through the induction of great women into the Hall of Fame.  Our comprehensive programming and multiple organizational venues give potential members and supporters several ways to become engaged with the Hall and the Inductees, both now and in the future.

The National Women’s Hall of Fame is at a dynamic evolutionary place in its history.  We are excited about its potential, but most excited about the expansiveness of our vision and its anticipated impact upon women’s lives—past, present and future.

Now onto my randomness. So as I said I was having a hard time thinking of what to write about leading. It hit me as I was responding to another mommy's project blog that "as moms
we are leaders everyday to our kids" Our kids look to us for leadership daily. Some days we are great leaders and some days we are crappy leaders. Just writing that makes me realize how I impact my children on a daily basis. Wouldn't it be best if I daily chose to be a great leader (mom) and not a crappy one.

If one day my kids were to choose me for national hall of fame leader I know I had done right!1

  1. What a great post! You're so right, we moms are leaders, often unsung, to our families and children, to name a few. Some days, I'm happy to think I'm in the "I don't hate my mom" hall of fame, but I like this Hall better!
