This is one of the best things I’ve seen in a while. Being independent is a beautiful thing because you can “do you”, love others, and kick ass at the same time. I have spent too much time & energy taking care of everyone but myself for the last little while and it stops today. With that said, you can make your own damn sandwich… I’ve got adventures to go on.
“I’ve got two daughters who will have to make their way in this skinny-obsessed world, and it worries me, because I don’t want them to be empty-headed, self-obsessed, emaciated clones; I’d rather they were independent, interesting, idealistic, kind, opinionated, original, funny – a thousand things, before ‘thin’. And frankly, I’d rather they didn’t give a gust of stinking chihuahua flatulence whether the woman standing next to them has fleshier knees than they do. Let my girls be Hermiones, rather than Pansy Parkinsons. Let them never be Stupid Girls.”
“I always knew the woman I wanted to be—I knew I wanted to be a woman who was independent, a woman who was in the driving seat, a woman who didn’t need for the man to decide.”
Diane Von Furstenberg
I believe knowing who you are & what you want to become is a gift, an art, and one of life’s most beautiful & brutal lessons. Cheers, Mrs. Furstenberg
I have always been a fan of Beyonce, way back to the days of Destinys Child. They were one of my first concerts & fueled the independent woman in girls all around the world. When they separated Beyonce began to truly create herself, and it’s all history from there. My mum recorded this for me a few months ago & I found a lot of inspiration from her drive & love for life. It goes to show that no matter what your dreams may be if you’re willing to start at the bottom, and often be your own biggest fan, you can do anything.
