Women Are Making It

I like everything that is empowering, not only to women, but to everyone. But of course I would love it if all women in the world have a mature, advanced, and a very forward way of thinking and attitude, not just sit there and be afraid and lazy and waste all of our potentials.

I really love seeing my fellow female friends living life with such hunger, thirst, and enthusiasm to kick ass and to accomplish whatever they want to accomplish. This probably sounds so much like a self-help book, but reading these quotes below has made me even more pumped up in chasing my dreams (yes I am ambitious that way, haha). Today I read this article from Huffington Post Women and I found this collection of quotes is very empowering. I hope it helps you too 🙂

“We don’t celebrate everyday women enough. They make the world go around, not the people you see on the magazine covers.”

-Michelle Williams, Singer (Former Destiny’s Child member)

“There are a lot of things about being a teenager that are eternal. It’s that feeling of wanting to be independent and feeling like you know everything and yet knowing that you know nothing. The idea that your life is pure possibility.”

-Ann Shoket, Editor In Chief Seventeen Magazine

“I’ve realized from the great height of age 54, that the single worst dynamic in life and in business is the fear of what other people think.

-Cindy Gallop, CEO and Founder of Make Love Not Porn

“I’m trying to teach my daughters that they have to think of themselves as providers and not be the ones being provided for.”

-Maria Shriver, Journalis & Former First Lady of California

“I am a much happier 27-year-old than I was at 20 years old. I am so fortunate because I have an amazing family, amazing friends and a great support system. I think at 27 it is much easier for me to look at life and appreciate what I have rather than stressing about the little things day to day.”

-Meryl Davis, Olympic Gold Medalist

“I think you can juggle it. If you’re really the kind of person that’s super-aggressive about what you do, you’re going to make everything work.”

-Nanette Lepore, Designer

“My focus was, ‘I’m going to do it as good or better as all the men who have come before me.'”

-Victoria MacRae-Samuels, VP of Operations of Maker’s Mark

“I’ve had a lot of people who were very kind to me, but no one’s ever taught me how to do anything. I had to figure all that stuff out on my own.”

-Molly McAleer, “2 Broke Girls” Writer, HelloGiggles Co-Founder

“I just acted like the kitchen was mine until it finally was.”

-Jamie Malone, Award-Winning Chef

“There’s this real deliciousness to being able to do exactly what you want to do and were meant to do after years of just sort of journeying toward that end.”

-Lynn Shelton, Filmmaker

“I do what I do because it’s a complete passion project, and I’m utterly convinced that it needs to exist.”

-Jessica Herrin, Founder of Stella & Dot

“You always think that when you get to the next level you’ll be the happiest, but for me success is really about being happy and proud of myself and the work that I do. That to me is the greatest success. I definitely consider myself successful because I really love what I do. And I’m happy in what I do every single day.”

-Lea Michele, Actress & Singer

“I feel proud to be a woman because I wouldn’t want to be anything else! The level of strength that a woman has inside of her is just unbelievable.

-Lea Michele, Actress & Singer
