Hello Ladies & possibly gents….!

It’s been a while since I wrote something personal (again)… I know, I stink. SO to mend your woes, I have decided to share 10 #GIRLBOSS Quotes That Will Leave You Feeling Empowered. I came across the quotes during this new phase, I like to call “rediscovering” myself.

In recent months, I have started to make time for “me” again, whether it be blogging, taking photos, working out, going for drinks and yes even reading. In my younger years (I’m talking about elementary school people) I loved to read. I was a book worm. I read and read and read . I read every book I could get my hands on. Then I stopped. I’m not to sure what happened (probably puberty) and I don’t think I picked up and read a book that didn’t involve pictures, for at least 10 years.

Well, as life would have it, I was presented with an opportunity. The opportunity came from a uneasy situation, but nevertheless, it gave me the gift of time…. time for myself, time to rediscover who I am as person and not just “mom” to Jay & Abel.

I always wanted to read the book, #GIRLBOSS, which was written by Sophia Amoruso, the founder and CEO of Nasty Gal. I heard of the brand before, because a few of my girlfriends had bought items from her site. Actually, come to think of it, my first online order was from Nasty Gal. A pair of light denim, ripped, high waisted shorts, oh how I loved them. Anyways, long story short, I read the book and developed a girl crush on Sophia. Of course, I didn’t want to keep all her empowering words to myself, so I created a list of my Top 10#GIRLBOSS quotes from her book.

#girlboss, #girlboss quotes, #girlboss book review, empowerment quotes, quote of the day, boss babe, hustling mama, motivational quotes for women

  1. Money looks better in the bank than on your feet

  2. If something’s not working out, but you keep hammering at it in the exact same way, go after something else for a while. That’s not giving up, that’s just letting the universe have its way.

  3. Focus on the positive things in your life and you’ll shocked at how many more positive things start happening. But before you start to think you just got lucky, remember that it’s Magic, and you made it yourself.

  4. When your goal is to gain experience, perspective, and knowledge, failure is no longer a possibility. Failure is your invention.

  5. In whatever you do, you’re not going to stand out unless you think big and have ideas that are truly original. That comes from tapping into your own creativity, not obsessing over what everyone else is doing.

  6. No one will ever be able to love you if you don’t love yourself. What is beautiful about it is that if you love yourself enough, you don’t need validation from anyone else.

  7. Clothing is ultimately the suit of armor in which we battle the world. When you choose your clothing right, it feels good. And there’s nothing shallow about feeling good.

  8. You are on in billions! Someone has to succeed, so it might as well be you.

  9. Compete with yourself, not with others. Judge yourself on what is your personal best and you’ll accomplish more than you could ever have imagined.

  10. Treat your mind like your money. Don’t waste it.

So #girlbosses, I hope you’re feeling empowered ! Comment below and tell me which one was your fav!
