I had quite a week last week. You know those weeks from hell where nothing seems to go the right way no matter how hard you're trying, no matter how hard your working to move forward. There's always something new that appears right in front of you obstructing your view, taking up the whole space of the path your on. It's frustrating, tiring, and even though you know it is childish, you can't help but want to completely stop everything and throw a temper tantrum with a good cry. Don't worry; you're not the only grown-ass adult who wants to angry cry till their face hurts when I find myself in this on the brink of tossing my hands angerly in the air. I like to consult some boss lady quotes to help remind me that I am capable of overcoming any and all obstacles that put themselves before me.
"My coach said I run like a girl. And I said if he ran a little fast he could too." —Mia Hamm
Being a girl does not make you weak. We are not a part of the weaker sex just because we happen to be feminine. In fact, we are fucking strong! We continuously deal with old boys club and in spite of all their bullshit, guess what we are still successful. Being a woman is empowering, and it's uplifting!
"Whatever you do, be different. If you're different, you will stand out." ~ Anita Roddick
We don't have to work hard at being different or at standing out. We are individuals with significantly different personalities. We are striving to be better versions of ourselves always, but let's be real here. You and I stand out in any room we enter because we are amazingly beautiful inside and out. With just a quick glance anyone will be able to see our spunky personality glowing out from us. I love this quote because I interpret it as a friendly reminder to always be yourself. To never apologize or try to hide your imperfect you.
“In every position that I've been in, there have been naysayers who don't believe I'm qualified or who don't believe I can do the work. And I feel a special responsibility to prove them wrong.” — Sonia Sotomayor
You know what you are capable of, you know what skills you possess, and you only you know how hard you are willing to push to further your knowledge to continue working towards your passion. Never let anyone give you one up down look and decided that you are just not fit for the job. If it's your dream then go get it, girl, you deserve it just as much as anyone else.
“If you retain nothing else, always remember the most important rule of beauty, which is: who cares?” — Tina Fey
You do you. Who gives a fuck if you rock a messy bun or an authentically natural face. If you're happy the rest of the world better catch up.
“It is amazing what a woman can do if only she ignores what men tell her she can’t.” — Carol K. Carr
Sometimes it may seem like an impossible task to do, especially when the voices of others can't are louder than you inner you can do this voice. Always do your best to remember you can do anything you set your mind to.
"You have what it takes to be a victorious, independent, fearless woman." Tyra Banks
Never doubt how amazing and capable you are.
"Girl power is about loving yourself and having confidence and strength from within, so even if you're not wearing a sexy outfit, you feel sexy."
Thavin & Marcob is a place where you are celebrated for being you!
