“There is a special place in hell for women who don’t support and help other women.” -Madeleine Albright
Having been through my own trials and tribulations, I often look to strong, empowered women for encouragement, as sometimes, all you need is a good quote to kick some inspiration into your day. This is why I love Instagram. It connects me with such women and gives me my daily dose of self-esteem.
It works for me anyway.
Ellen Degeneres, Michelle O'Bama, Ophra - and one of my favourites - J.K. Rowling - all driven women, who have undoubtedly changed the world with their strong voice, optimism, motivation and opinions.
While we can't all be high profile women in our own right, it doesn't mean we can't be inspirational to each other.
My beautiful friends are just that. They constantly inspire me.
Their authenticity, support and never-ending loyalty are what encourages me to keep moving forward. To pursue my dreams and love myself, faults and all.
We as human beings can be very confusing creatures, even in our own eyes. It's your tribe who will decipher through the bullshit and paint the picture of reality. Regardless of what that is, they will back you with their last cent, believe in you when you don’t believe in yourself and continue to push you to be your best self.
Empowered women, empower women.
So today, love your tribe. Love and respect the women who are not in your tribe as they are your sisters - treat them accordingly.
