#girlboss

It’s a term I absolutely love! According to a popularĀ Netflix movie, a #girlboss is strong, smart, resilient, opinionated, confident and feisty! Do you agree? If not, no worries! Everyone has a different definition. While the point is to define what being a #girlboss means FOR YOU, the more important thing is to BE THAT. In your personal life, work life or however else you define your life.

BE. THE. BOSS. OF. YOUR. OWN. LIFE.

Not someone else’s. Live your best life. Stay in your lane and mind your own business. šŸ™‹šŸ½ If you need to find (or re-find) inspiration you can listen to a #girlboss playlist (Spotify), read a #girlboss book, check out #girlboss quotes on Pinterest, set up a #girlboss lockscreen on your phone or take a #girlbossĀ trip. #whateverworks

LIVE. THE. LIFE. YOU. WANT. MAKE. IT. HAPPEN.

You can be 20 or 30 or 40 or 50 or 60 or 100+! Just know that while you are doing all those things, so are others and it’s okay! For me, being a #girlbossĀ means protecting my space and my peace. I guard that very closely because most times I just CANNOT!!!! šŸš«

FIND. YOUR. PASSION. AND. DO. THAT.

FACT: I like writing and paper. And guess what? So do A LOT of other people. As normal, we take the things we love whole new #levels! See also: Planner Situation, my current favorite penĀ (there’s nothing wrong with a little bling!) or Shop PaperSource. Another one of my personal #girlboss criteria is to have order in my life – in written form of course – (and to look the part šŸ˜‰)! The essential item I use to do this is an agenda. Mine is currently being repaired and I feel SO VERY stifled. šŸ˜©

You may have noticed I underlined a few words above: FIND, BE, DO, LIVE. They are all verbs because at the heart of being a #girlboss is to takeĀ ACTION.

GO. GET. IT. šŸ–¤

Glory

John Legend and Common wonĀ Best Original Song at the Golden Globes for the song Glory, made for the new filmĀ SELMA. The song is AMAZING. The movie is AMAZING. It is based on events that took place inĀ 1965 on the famous Edmund Pettus Bridge, but the message is stillĀ relevant today –Ā 50 years later. Definitely GO SEE IT.

Listen to the song below.

And here’s common’s acceptance speech (presented by PRINCE). His message is also AMAZING! #humanity #SELMAisNOW #IAM
