Positive thinking on a consistent basis can become part of one's daily routine.
Most often, the way we feel about a situation is interpreted by our perception of it.

National Women’s History Month was born of suffrage in March of 1857, when women from New York City factories staged a protest over working conditions. International Women’s Day was first observed in 1909, but it was not until 1981 that Congress established National Women’s History Week. In 1987, Congress expanded the week to a month. Every year since, Congress has passed a resolution for Women’s History Month, and the President has issued a proclamation.
