“Fill your life with women that empower you, that help you believe in your magic and aid them to believe in their own exceptional power and their incredible magic too. Women that believe in each other can survive anything. Women who believe in each other create armies that will win kingdoms and wars.”
— Nikita Gill
Today, I’d like to write a little bit about some of the women in my life who are beyond incredible. From across the globe, they are beautiful forces of nature – unforgettable and undaunted. Together, they have inspired me this past year in many, many different ways I can’t thank them enough for all of the micro moments to the humongous ones that have left a lasting impression. In this post, not all my heroes wear capes – but they are the best!
I’m a grown woman who still needs her mommy! 😉 She has been my constant source of strength and comfort. She is also my weakness. There isn’t a day where I don’t think I got lucky in the mommy area! =) There is absolutely nothing she wouldn’t do to see me happy and healthy. More than half her life, she’s lived for me and my happiness. It sounds clichéd but she literally is my best friend and confidant. There’s comfort in knowing she always has my back. I can write a whole post about her but I’m going to keep it short and sweet and just let you know – she’s my superhero and always will be!
Ann is the epitome of a person with a creative mind. She can brighten up any dull space with a swish of her wand. Her determination to make anything happen is in itself a superpower. This is just one of her many superpowers! What is her biggest superpower you ask? Well, she’s a happiness-maker. All you need is a two-minute conversation with her and you won’t know why you were upset in the first place. Ann has a super sweet personality but is also a fiercely strong woman who will protect you with all she’s got. That’s one of the many qualities I deeply admire in her. There are very few people who know their strengths and can admit to their weaknesses – in my eyes, they are most balanced people. Ann being one of them. To be honest, she’s got the best of many things!
Bezy is a bundle of optimism! Always smiling and forever caring. She has an aura of positivity that draws you towards her. By far, the most sweet-natured person I’ve had the opportunity of getting to know. I love that she always tries to plan and bring people together which is ever so nice. More so, her enthusiasm to let us know about her culture and traditions is amazing. I’m sure everyone who spent the evening in her house having traditional Ethiopian food and the delicious traditionally made coffee will concur when I say she is the absolute best at bringing everyone together and having the best time. To add to that super sweet personality, she is so soo sooo beautiful!
Flladiee is an inspiration. She will make you want to burst your little bubble and explore – to see new cultures and embrace them, to get out of your comfort zone and do something different. She will inspire you to see the world. Let me correct that – she will not only inspire but encourage you to see different countries. Let’s say you want to be in her shoes, especially when she’s traveling! The world is different – we’re all from different cultural backgrounds – she is inquisitive about them all. Her curious mind is something I’m in awe of! Also, she’s a go-getter. She knows what she wants and she will work towards getting there. If there’s something new you want to do or try, she’d be the first person to reach out too!
Have you ever thought of someone and wished you could be the kind of person she is? That’s Mirella for me. I have known her for a little over a year now, and she makes you want to be the best version of yourself. It’s always difficult to take the high road, but she does it with ease. She is always, and I mean always, ever so kind and thoughtful. Mirella is sunshine on a cold, dull day! I love that she has an intuitive way of knowing how you’re feeling and will let you know she’s there. She has a honey soul! By far one of the most beautiful people I know, inside and out. Oh she also has the cutest mannerisms, especially when she’s sort of angry but not really angry! I will always wish her nothing but the best that life has to offer.
Always quick-witted, there’s never a dull moment when she’s around. She exudes the kind of confidence that is just right. Smart, funny and empathetic – Shani is a #girlboss! If I hear a strong, self-assured voice putting forth her thoughts, I know it’s her. Shani is as strong as she is kind! She has an amazing way of understanding how you feel and will always manage to dilute any bad feelings. She is a thinker who handles herself with grace and dignity regardless of the situation. Have I already mentioned there’s a never a dull moment when she’s around? Yes, I think I need to reiterate that. I love that we share a common love for animals especially dogs! More power to her!
All of these women are unique and wonderful in their own phenomenal ways. Just like them, YOU are unique and wonderful in your own phenomenal way too. Let’s draw inspiration from one another and try to better ourselves. Let us all encourage each other and uplift each other – after all, that is when the magic happens!
Lots of Love,
