#GirlPower Positivity

12:23:00 PM

Who run the world? Girls. Who run the world? Girls

- I am pretty sure most of you, myself included, have jammed out to this Beyonce song multiple times in your life and felt so amazing and powerful. Actually, just a few minutes before I started writing this post, I put it on and it made me feel so much better and more confident. I have decided to dedicate this post to this very important topic, because I feel that #GirlPower should be talked about more often. So many inspiring women in the world who have done amazing things should be celebrated, not looked down upon, and not just them, the women in our everyday lives, mothers,grandmothers,sisters, aunts have to be appreciated! There has always been so much negativity surrounding this topic as I am most certain, we have all, at least once in our lives felt a bit down about ourselves because someone has made a snarky comment about us, or we've all heard this phrase: '' Oh, I don't think you could do that, because you are a girl ''. I really think it's time for that to change, because being a girl is so amazing and we can literally do anything we set our minds to. So in today's post I would like to spread a little bit of #girlpower positivity and share with you some quotes, films, songs, ecc, which have inspired me and which celebrate all the amazing things girls and women have done!




QUOTES


- ''Girls should never be afraid to be smart. '' Emma Watson.

'' She believed she could, so she did''

- '' And though she be but little, she is fierce'' William Shakespeare

- ''She needed a hero, so that's what she became''

- '' Let's laugh. Let's share. Let's sing out of tune and cheer out of sync. Let's speak out loud and listen closely. Let's break hearts and guitar strings, throw karate chops and blow kisses. Let's twirl and tumble. Let's be fearless when it comes to our future. And care less when it comes to what people say about us. Let's strive and succeed at being true to our friends and ourselves. Let's be great. And be grateful. Let's throw kindness around like confetti and wear confidence like camouflage. Let's colour in rainbow and construct a fort. Let's wear dresses or jeans. Or dresses with jeans. Let's skateboard. Let's dance. Let's be the best we can be. Let's be strong and confident. Let's not be anything else but who we are. Fun and fabulous. Weird and wonderful. Pink, blue or purple. Let's be exactly who we are are supposed to be. Individually ourselves. '' Ellen Degeneres

Those are a couple of quotes that I find so inspiring and encouraging! Especially this last one, it is a bit long, but it sums everything up so perfectly and I just love it!


   





SONGS

Sometimes all we need is a good playlist to make us feel a bit more confident and powerful, so here are a few songs to listen to when you need a little boost!



MOVIES/TV SHOWS


There's never a bad time for an amazing inspiring girl power movie or TV show. These stories of friendship,love and general girl awesomeness are perfect cozy nights in, in front of  the TV with your best friends for all of you to enjoy! So here are a few of my favorites:

1. Legally Blonde - what could I say about this movie to do it justice? It is my ultimate feel-good, pick me up movie that always makes me feel better! Reese Witherspoon's portrayal of Elle Woods is just everything and I adore the message of this movie. Despite everyone's judgement and preconceptions, Elle becomes an amazing lawyer and fashionable heroine, using her brains and determination, not just beauty, for success. If you haven't seen it, you really need to, and it is honestly one of my favorites and the ultimate girl empowerment movie!

2. The Help - starring Emma Stone, one of my most favorite actresses, The Help, is a very important movie full of inspiring and self-sufficient women fighting against racism and the poor treatment of women in the Civil Right era. Very beautiful and inspirational, this movie won't leave you disappointed.

3. The Hunger Games - one of my favorite movies and book series as well! Katniss Everdeen is one of the most toughest and most understated heroines to ever grace the big screen. She becomes a symbolic icon for rebellion against the Capitol. She's natural, intelligent and brave and she stands up for people who can't. I am pretty sure you have all read, seen and loved The Hunger Games, but in case you haven't, you really should, it is a bit gory, but so amazing and inspiring.

4. Pretty Little Liars - you all know about my obsession with PLL, because I talk about it all the time and discussing new episodes is my favorite thing to do! Also, I believe it is very important for girl power because essentially, through all the horror and the horrible things they've gone through, the girls have stuck together through it all and we've seen their friendship develop and grow. Pretty Little Liars is an amazing show and I don't know how I'll cope once it's over.

5. Girls - this HBO show is so heartwarming and beautiful! It's about four girls who are all unique and flawed in their own way, going through the same daily struggles as we are. Life can be hard, but with friends like these, you can make it through just about anything. 

6. Ugly Betty - an old show which I still love and plan to rewatch once I find time. Ugly Betty is so touching and heart-warming at the same time as being incredibly funny and hilarious. Also, I love it because it proves that looks are not everything and you can make it in the world with hard work and determination. 

7. Desperate Housewives - a TV show my mom and I watched together and we both loved so much! It is all about women empowerment and it tells the story of women who are friends and neighbours and their everyday struggles and problems. So comforting and beautiful, I really loved it.




ROLE MODELS

I also wanted to touch on and talk about very inspiring women in my life. They are my mom and my grandma,who have taught me everything I know and I am eternally grateful for all they have done for me. But also, apart from them, I really look up to Emma Watson, who I find such an incredible person and role model. She is so beautiful, classy, intelligent and she is not afraid to speak out and speak her mind on important subjects and matters. I am sure she charmed all of our hearts when she played the amazing, clever and brave Hermione in Harry Potter and ever since then I have looked up to her. One of the many reasons for that is because even though she was busy filming movies, she didn't want to let her school take a step back, so she went to and graduated from Brown University. Also, she used her fame, education and passion to become a UN's women ambassador and delivered an incredibly beautiful and powerful speech about her He for She campaign. She is basically real life Hermione Granger which makes her so amazing!

- Those are all the topics I wanted to cover in this post and I hope you've enjoyed it. I did not want to make it sound preachy or maybe too cheesy, but just embark a little bit of positivity and #girlpower we all sometimes need. Also, I wanted to say that no matter how cliche this may sound, all girls are amazing and stunning, and we really can do anything we want to if we just stick together, empower one another and work hard on our dreams.And finally, I hope I have not bored you enough by now, there is this quote I found on pinterest that I loved and hope to stick to. It says: '' I aspire to be an empowered women with vision and grace. Soft-hearted but strong, self-aware and sure. Respected for my mind, admired for my heart and above all always honest, open and kind. '' 

                                                                                                                      Love, M xx

  20. Love this! "Roar" is my girl power jam, and Legally Blond always makes me feel empowered too. I follow tons of girl bosses on Instagram, and I love their inspiring quotes, anecdotes, and outfits. I try to build my feeds with as many of these women as possible because they inspire me. This post is a good reminder to look to movies and music a little more often too!
