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.

Life in a cycle

Every day we go through the same cycle, the waking up to the alarm, the almost skipped breakfast, the running late to catch the taxi, the long work period, the coming home, having food, and then finally, sleeping, just to wake up to repeat the cycle.

The things go on like this forever, till we are old enough, sitting in a rocking-chair by the window and thinking, “Did I live my life right?”
We come across a few people in our lifetime who broke away from the same cycle of life, who went out the cycle to live their own lives, they decided their own rules and lived along them, and maybe at the start they had to hear mockery from the close ones, but we all know that now people look at them with admiration because they themselves spend a lot of time of the daily life thinking if they should break out of the routine, and if yes, then how?

The Bhagavad Gita — that ancient Indian text — says that it’s better to live your own life imperfectly than to live an imitation of someone else’s life perfectly.
Life is short — I do not need to tell you this, you already know — and we need to build it the way we want, so that when our time comes, we can look at the flash of our lives before us and say, “Yes, I lived it right.”
There are a lot of things we do so that we don’t have to hear things from people so that we are in tune with what other people do, no matter how miserable doing those things makes us feel. It can be as simple as eating that bad-tasting cereal in the morning, to as big as that job which people say is good, but you know how drained and bad it makes you feel. It can be that marriage that you are okay with but that makes you feel dead in life, to that dress you wore to the party that your dresser made you wear but that didn’t go with your taste. It can be as small as a grain of sand, to as big as the mountain. But we need to work for it, for the life that we want, for the feeling of ecstasy that we’ve spent our whole lives looking for, for the peace we will get when our time comes.
Yes, living according to the society feels like the safe choice, but does it give you the satisfaction that life is supposed to give you? The one you read about online and in books? And what are you doing to make it that way? Are you close to reaching that point, or you still have a long way to go?
I hope you’ll take your time after reading this to write down what you want out of your life, and is your present situation going to get you there? Write down what all you need to make it through and get going on it, no matter how slow, but go get your life straight, darling.
