Adore Womanhood- Motivational quotes

“International Women’s Day”

Every year 8th March is dedicated as International women’s day to celebrate womanhood, celebrate the various achievements of women all over the world. This year the theme is “Gender Parity”.

While we all are aware that gender parity can’t happen overnight but there is a piece of good news. The strong and global movements are making positive gains day by day. And hence it’s required more than ever to motivate us all and unite everyone to a strong call for #PressforProgress.

Where everyone is working their share to motivate and add to the movement. I am trying to motivate you all with some motivational quotes.

Here, I have tried to collate a few quotes by some well-known personalities. I hope these would help you feel good about yourselves rather than complaining about what’s not there, let’s celebrate what’s there and how to make it even better.

1. “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

One of the more famous quotes of Eleanor Roosevelt. this is definitely true and will help greatly in becoming the woman that you want to be. Instead of placing the blame on someone else for making you feel a certain way. Take responsibility for letting them make you feel that way. This isn’t just true for feelings of inferiority, but for any negative feeling, sad, frustrated, disappointed, etc. You’re the one that is in control of how you feel, and others can’t bring you down unless you let them.

2. “It takes a great deal of courage to stand up to your enemies, but even more to stand up to your friends.” ~ J. K. Rowling

It does take courage to make a stand and go up against your enemies. But what happens when it’s your friends that you have to stand up to? This is when it becomes very hard indeed to go against the grain and stand up for what you believe is right. So many times young women are lured into what their group of friends is saying or doing, even when they know it’s not right. It may end up that you’re not friends with those people anymore, but you’ll make new friends that share your values.

3. “You are more powerful than you know; you are beautiful just as you are.” ~ Melissa Etheridge

This is a beautiful quote that will help you realize just how powerful you really are. And to stop spending so much time trying to become beautiful. You already are beautiful, and the power you possess will reveal itself over your lifetime. It’s enough to know that you have power and that it will continue to grow and expand as you allow it. The good news is that realizing you’re beautiful. Just as you are right now is the first step to harnessing the power within you and accomplishing more in life.

4. “A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.” ~ Diane Mariechild

It’s pretty amazing being a woman, you have all of the essentials for life within you. You’re a very nurturing force, and not only have the power to create life, but to incubate it and deliver it to the world. On an individual level, you’re able to change and become whatever you want. Growing and developing into the life that you choose. It is an amazing experience and one that you’ll want to create consciously rather than letting others decide what sort of life you’ll have. Never forget that you have these powers within you.

5. “Don’t be afraid to speak up for yourself. Keep fighting for your dreams!” ~ Gabby Douglas

Speaking up for yourself is a learned habit. No one is just born with it, they had to develop the skill. It’s an important skill and one that will benefit you all the days of your life. And help you become the best woman you can be. This dovetails nicely with fighting for your dreams because when you pursue a dream. You’re going to have to do a lot of speaking up for yourself. There are those that will try to dissuade you from reaching your dreams and goals. And you will have to find your voice.

“6. The most effective way to do it, is to do it.” ~ Amelia Earhart

Instead of pondering what the best strategy is to get something done, you just do it. When you focus on getting it done you’ll find ways to get it done better as you’re getting it done. So much time can be wasted on a project or a task just by becoming overwhelmed with the size or the difficulty of it. When you get into the mindset of just doing it, no matter what it involves, you’ll find that the tasks become easier and everything flows.

7. “The power you have is to be the best version of yourself you can be, so you can create a better world.” ~ Ashley Rickards

Being the best version of yourself takes effort and a deliberate attempt to do so. You never really know what the best version of yourself is until you start to try to become it. You’ll find that once you work on improving yourself, you’ll discover a new way to get better. And it becomes a continual process. The opposite is also true and should be avoided. If you let yourself slide, you’ll find new ways to continue that slide. And become a version of yourself you never wanted to be.

8.“If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.” ~ Katharine Hepburn

They say that some rules are made to be broken, and still others are made to be bent. She’s not saying that you should break the law, but our society has so many rules put in place that if you conform to them all you might have a bland and vanilla time here. Find out which rules are getting in the way of some good clean fun, and test the boundaries. Life isn’t about staying within the lines, it’s about doing what you want without getting in the way of others doing what they want.

9.“It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent.” ~ Madeleine Albright

It may take you a while to find your voice and develop it into one that can be heard. But once you do have it you won’t ever want to let it go. Imagine someone trying to silence your voice after all the trouble you’ve gone through to get it? The nerve of some people! That’s what makes this quote so memorable. It speaks to the part of us that doesn’t want to give up the things we’ve worked so hard to attain. First, work on developing your voice, and you won’t have to worry about defending it, that will come naturally.

10.“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” ~ Maya Angelou

Here’s a great yardstick for life, not the number of years that we rack up. But the number of times we have those moments of awe that make life worth living. Be sure that as you’re living your life you are searching out moments that will take your breath away. Because that’s what we’re here for, to experience joy and awe and all of the good things that life has to offer. If you don’t lose sight of this, you’ll have amazing life experience and you’ll keep that inner youth all the days of your life.
