Today, I want to talk about Women Empowerment or …Girl Power!
Below, I have listed quotes and accomplishments from some of the most influential women of our time. I admire these women so much. Each one of them was harshly ridiculed at one point or another for being different, for going against the grain. Many, of course, are left out- but these are some of my faves. Their words of wisdom make my heart sing. They are so inspirational and were told they would never accomplish their biggest dream. Imagine if they would have listened…
I hope you use this post as a safe haven– come here and read through these quotes when you’re feeling down, when someone ridicules your dreams or when you have self doubt.
