Why We Need More Girl Power
One of my FAVORITE things about being a blogger is empowering other sassy ladies out there! Partnering with my fellow sassy queen, Sarah Tripp from @sassyredlipstick, to share how important it is to support other women. Because together we are truly stronger and sassier!
Over the course of my career, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting some amazing bloggers and influencers who have inspired me, supported me, and guided me on this crazy life path. And now I feel like it’s my turn to give back! This year is the year of the WOMAN (hear us ROAR!).
There’s nothing more powerful than supporting and encouraging others, and I fully believe that we rise by lifting others up. Too often, our culture tries to pit us against each other…why? Supporting another’s success surely won’t dampen yours. Instead, celebrate! Celebrate each other’s similarities, but also each other’s differences. We’re really more alike than we realize.
FIND YOUR COMMUNITY AND NURTURE IT.
I think it’s so important for girls to find their own personal sense of community—whether that’s in school, work, or—yes—even on the World Wide Web. That’s one of the main reasons the Sassy Club was formed! Once you have like-minded people in your life who share similar hearts, it’s easier to be yourself—flaws and all. Finding community that embraces you for every bit of you is simply priceless!
THE ULTIMATE FORM OF GIRL POWER.
The ultimate form of girl power is self-confidence. And even though that’s always a work in progress for most, it’s one of my top goals. Because when you have self-confidence, even the hardest life hurdles can’t get in your way. Once you’ve got the self-confidence, it’s time to start spreading that love to those around you…..because empowered women empower women. Yes!
ASK YOURSELF THESE QUESTIONS.
So take a look at not only yourself, but those you surround yourself with. Is this relationship building you up? Are they positive influences in your life? Are there people you know who could use a little boost of love? Give it! A sweet friendship refreshes the soul. And when women join together, there’s nothing that can stop us. As the saying goes, “I get by with a little help from my friends.”
Let’s join together to pledge 2019 as the year that we spread love, build community, and embrace diversity. Let’s open our hearts in a welcoming way to those who may need it. And let’s hold each other accountable for our values and mission by encouraging each other along the way.
Women, we rock! Stay fierce, strong, and true.
