As women, the greatest gift we can give each other is the gift of acceptance and empowerment. We are each other’s biggest advocate. Biggest cheerleader. Biggest support system. When we begin to stand up for ourselves, we become a force to be reckoned with. A force that has the ability to drive our world in the direction it so desperately needs. A direction of love and kindness. In it’s simplest form, empowerment is an energy. An energy fed by us and driven by us. So why not start feeding that fire? Why not come together to find the best version of ourselves? In spirit of providing support to my fellow ladies, I thought I would put together a post highlighting some of the most inspirational messages from some of the most influential. Have a look and get inspired :).

“Women have always been the strong ones of the world. The men are always seeking from women a little pillow to put their heads down on. They are always longing for the mother who held them as infants.” – Coco Chanel
