This will spark the warrior within!
“Birth is the epicenter of women’s power” — Ani DiFranco (Singer, Musician, Poet, Song writer, and Activist)
“I’d rather regret the thing’s I’ve done than regret the things I haven’t done.” — Lucille Ball (Actress, Comedian, Model, Film executive and Producer)
Feel the warrior within yet? We’re just getting started!
“I choose to be kind because it makes me happy. But I will defend my boundaries and my loved ones without hesitation. Make no mistake: I am fierce” — Nanea Hoffman (Founder of Sweatpants & Coffee, Actress and Writer)
“Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself” — Coco Chanel (French Fasion Designer and Business Woman)
“I truly believe that women should be financially independent from their men. And let’s face it, money gives men the power to run the show. It gives men the power to define value. They define what’s sexy. And men define what’s feminine. It’s ridiculous” — Beyonce (Artist, Actress, Business Woman and Activist)
What if we lived in a world where our presence defined us and not other people whom we’re told to give power too? We’re in an age where we are redefining gender, success and the meaning of life individually and that is where the power lies. It lies within the uniqueness of an individual the level of being unapologetically yourself!
“I hope you will go out and let stories happen to you, and that you will work them, water them with your blood and tears and laughter til they Bloom til you yourself burst into BLOOM” — Clarissa Pinkola Estes (Poet, Jungian Psychoanalyst and post trauma specialist)
“When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid” — Audre Lorde (Poet, Feminist, Womanist, Librarian and Civil Rights Activist)
Calling all woman and men! Just because these quotes are aimed towards women doesn’t mean they are gender specific. It’s the power behind the words, the hard lessons behind the sentences and how you breathe life into these words by using this knowledge in your own life. We could all use a spark to our inner warrior and a wake up call to keep pushing on our life journey.
