Women Who Inspire

In light of us celebrating International Women’s Day last week, I though it’d be fitting to speak on my love for women! I admire, respect, understand, emulate, and love so many women that it's ridiculous. Though we all have been made differently, I appreciate the similarities we share just as much as our differences!

As a young woman, I not only admire the women I meet and see every day, but also those I can only hope to meet (I’m being humble rn, because I will meet them)! The way the society works now-a-days, its almost impossible to NOT be influenced by popular women in some way and I think that's good. If a young girl can look at a woman and see her a reason to better herself, I am all for that  positive influence!

When I was thinking of this post, the first woman that came to mind was Tracee Ellis Ross and it was fitting because I L O V E that woman! She’s such a class act with a BIG personality. Lupita Nyong’o also came to mind because I truly believe she is the total package; beauty, grace, and intelligence…what more could you ask for. Both of them have AMAZING fashion sense too, so yes, they are THEE total packages.

Those two have been sitting front and center as inspirations for me for a while, but there are plenty other women such as Elaine Welteroth, Kahlana Barfield Brown, AnnaSophia Robb, Michelle Obama, Shiona Turini, Rihanna, Kristen Noel Crawley, Oprah and many more that I find something to be inspired by. These are all different women that I've come to respect and admire in some capacity.

I purposely didn't talk of my mother and grandmothers because I know many people on the Internet don't know them. Nevertheless, I do think inspiration can come from the people right next to you. That inspiration is the best because you can really work on embodying the characteristics of them that you love and want to shape some part of who you are.

Women inspiring and appreciating other women is amazing. It's empowering to draw strength and grow via a counterpart instead of hating or being envious. As we move forward, it is so important that we allow ourselves to build with each other rather than compete against each other. We are all sisters and no matter if your sister shares a room with you or you watch her on TV, it is our job to support and grow together to be women who change the world.
