So, as we all know, last Thursday was International Woman’s Day. It was so amazing to see women everywhere sharing inspiring and supportive quotes, writing stories and expressing what being a woman means to them. It was so enriching to see social media flooded with such positivity and it was a day where so many of us remembered why we are so proud to be women. Now, imagine if we saw those same uplifting comments, quotes and stories all the time.
Real talk, as women, we know that we can often slip into negativity towards ourselves and even to other women. We often point out and focus on the flaws in our body, looks, personality, intelligence etc. We even think that way towards our fellow women. I want you to think about the last time you saw a girl take a selfie in public. Was your first thought, “oh she looks great today I’d take a selfie too” or was it more along the lines of “that’s a bit embarrassing taking photos of yourself”. Was it that latter? You know you aren’t alone in having done this but the question is why do we do this? In a world full of obstacles and uncertainty we need to be lifting one another up instead of tearing one another down.
Internationals Woman’s Day brings about this beautiful magic where women are complimenting and supporting one another and it’s so special to see so how can we keep that same positivity and attitude flowing on a daily basis? By a slight shift in focus and consciousness you can better your days and those around you. The law of attraction states that what we put out in the world will be attracted back to us like a magnet so think about what you want to see more of in your life and start by spreading those desires to those around you. If you want to feel loved, appreciated, supported and happy then show that through your actions and it will come back to you. These could be little things like complimenting your friends more, telling your parents you appreciate them, helping a friend at work with something you wouldn’t normally help with. All these things help put out good in the universe. As women, we really need to show this constant support and love to one another as so many of us can be self conscious but spreading the love can ease those insecurities.
If it’s new to you it may feel silly at first or like you’re sucking up to people but when you start this new wave of thinking filled with spreading kindness and love around to others it will seriously change your thinking. Being kind is easy. So is complimenting and building up our friends and family. You never know how your little bit of effort can affect those around you so why not give it a shot. Step outside your comfort zone and you’ll be amazed at the difference you see in your life.
So on not just International Womans Day but everyday remember how blessed we are to be the strong, successful and independent women we are. Remember that we get ahead and achieve our goals through the support systems around us. Be an asset to your tribe and build them up to be the best people they can be. The world is a better and brighter place when we work together. The future is woman and together we’ve got this. Sending positivity and happy vibes to you all as we head into the week ahead.
