WOMEN'S WEDNESDAY | my top 15 inspiring women

"Behind every successful woman is a 
tribe of other successful women 
who have their back."

I'm empowered. I'm strong. I'm happy. I'm confident. I'm determined. I'm unapologetically me.

But these important traits aren't something I bought online and paid next day delivery for. I had to make a lot of changes to get to this place. And I wouldn't have been able to make those changes unless I were inspired to do so. I've posted a lot of inspirational quotes and pictures lately, but I haven't gone through the women that actually inspired me to become the person I am. The following 15 extraordinary women are ones who have had the most impact on me since the start of the year. They have helped me learn, grow and discover who I am and what I want.

"Always be yourself. There's only one of you.
You should embrace anything that you don't
like about yourself because that's individual
and that's you."

10. SHAILENE WOODLEY

"We have a set number of days to live, you know?
Or like, whatever, breathes to breathe. And you've
got to enjoy all of them, even in the moments
where you're like, 'I don't want to be here. I
don't want to do this.' Am I going to complain
about it? No. I'm going to f*cking make it fun."

11. MILEY CYRUS

"It's only hard if you're trying to be
something you're not.
Being who you are is really easy."

12. AMY SCHUMER

"I want to throw my hands in the air, after
reading a mean twitter comment, and say,
'All right! You got it. You figured me out.
I'm not pretty. I'm not thin. I do not deserve
to use my voice. All my self-worth is based
on what you can see.' But then I think,
fuck that... I am a woman with thoughts and
questions and shit to say. I say if I'm
beautiful. I say if I'm strong. You will not
determine my story - I will."

13. ELLEN DEGENERES

"Follow your passion. Stay true to yourself.
Never follow someone else's path unless
you're in the woods and you're lost and
you see a path. By all means,
you should follow that."

14. BELLA THORNE

"Girls are shamed for their bodies and made
to believe that they're not supposed to show
them or love them. They're made to believe that
they aren't perfect, that they need to 'work on it',
that they need to see themselves differently - 
and I think it's freaking ridiculous."

15. JENNIFER LAWRENCE

"You look how you look. Be comfortable.
What are you going to do? Be hungry every
single day to make other people happy?
That's just dumb."

_____________________________________

These women made me say - fuck this. I don't care what anyone thinks of me. I'm just going to do me. And I'll never apologise for that.

What bad ass women inspire you?
