Strong & Empowered Women


Today, I want to take this day to tell you about my blog, its name, and how and why it happened, and why I specifically chose women to be my muse for the blog.

I’ve always been a fan of scripts that motivate people, especially women. We live in a world where men don’t have to think twice before going after their dreams. But for women, some or most of them, it is not that easy. We have to think so many things before we take any step.

But that is not how it is supposed to be. We are aiming for the time when we don’t have to say that she’s the first women to do that, or a group of women did it for the first time. It shouldn’t be like that, a woman achieving something should be as normal as a man receiving something.

This blog is aimed at those girls who know they want big in life, and are needing some inspiration to go ahead for it, and for those who want to do big, and are ready to take control of it.

Every day in our life we pass so many people, you know who catches our eyes? The homeless, and the rich and successful. These are two extremes of any life. The normal average human never leaves quite a remark on our minds, because well — they’re mediocre.

Our life is supposed to be the extremes, we are supposed to stay and live extreme, that’s how our body clock works. We want the whole world or nothing at all. The people who are content with their present life have already given up. They’re rare, and you don’t wanna be them.

Live your life to the fullest, always aim for more. 

There comes a day in our life, when we lay in our bed, whether or not we’re breathing our last breath, but — we get flashbacks, of all the things we did in our lives, the good, the bad, the ugly, the beautiful. It all comes to us back in front of our eyes, and then we come back to reality, we look around and see what we have achieved in our life.

Do you think you’re going to be happy when something like that happens and you look around? Have you created the life you pictured for yourself? If not — then why not? What’s stopping you? Probably you are stopping yourself.

Many a time we are our own hinderance, we stop ourselves from taking that one step destined to take us to our dream life. Why? Because society, because children, because husband, because a 9-5 job, because parents. Honestly, the excuses are many, and they are never going to stop. Never.

Robert Frost once wrote in beautiful and popular words, “Two roads diverged in a wood; and I took the one less travelled by.”

I’ve created this blog for and a probably for myself, too, because the questions that come to my mind sometimes get answered when I get down and write.

Get going girl, there’s a world to take over.

Let’s be strong and empowered.

Loving yourself

How many of us love ourselves? How many of us really do adore every single inch of our body and every little element of our soul? Well, each one of us should.

The only way you can be truly, madly, and deeply happy is when you love yourself with every ounce of your heart. Being tetchy about something as little as the texture of your hair to something as huge as the story of your life won’t help. I guess everything in your life has a reason behind it, be it why you lost your much-loved sweater or why you couldn’t reach on time on your first date. For the latter I would say, “Maybe you’ve a better date ahead, just a matter of time!”

What really stuns me is the fact that we expect everyone around us, well, if not the whole world, to love us for who we are when we don’t feel the same for our own self. Isn’t it hilarious? You invest in something you expect an outcome from, you fight for the things you believe in, you promote stuff you are interested in and likewise you would expect people to be fond of you if you like yourself in the first place. Now that you get the basic picture let us talk about being happy.

Easier said than done, right? But contrary to what some of us think, it is not rocket science. Remember when you were a little girl and life was blissful? You sure do. The secret behind life being so trouble-free and uncomplicated was that you knew how to be happy with the little things you had. Daddy gifted you a new toy on Christmas, your class in-charge chose you to be the class monitor or one fine day you didn’t get any homework; such little things made you so happy that you used to jump with jubilation. Where did this feeling get lost? Maybe while growing up our expectations grew up too.

Try to find happiness in the little things that happen each day. We usually don’t notice or give luck enough credit for such little packets of joy. What if you got up one day and found some of your hair turned grey due to reasons unknown? Sounds funny, I know! But really, what if one day you don’t even get up to see the next day of your life? Why do we consider the awful things that did happen to us rather than considering the worse things which could have happened? The moment you feel terrible about something just look around. You might find someone in an even more dreadful situation. Had you been in their shoes, you would have been even more miserable that day. Yeah, you might also end up finding someone in the best of their disposition. Don’t you dare feel dejected! It simply wasn’t your day, but luckily days change!

The bottom line here is, you have to follow the golden rule which says, “Love yourself. Try to love the people and things around, too.”  Life becomes effortless.

I’m my favorite person, are you?  Try this and see how the magic works.
