As International Women’s Day came and passed, we we’re delighted to see the multitude of inspiring Snapchat stories displaying many gorgeous faces and gatherings across the world all in celebration of being a woman. Embracing our inner strength and individuality is a big part of being a Queen. Any mogul you respect to will tell you to start there, and we’ve grown up with some pretty great women to admire. We’ve probably all grown up with moms, aunts and grandmothers that loved The Oprah Winfrey Show, and most of us fell in love with her too. Then there was Queen B who came in and stole our hearts from Day 1 and Rihanna who will forever remain our favourite bad b*tch. Each of these women can offer us a perspective on what it is to embrace your Inner Queen.
Being a Queen may not mean the same thing to everyone. We define it as being the best version of yourself, and striving to do better everyday, and we’re offering our tips on how to achieve it.
Be Your Creative Self
Our generation of millenials has more access to global networks than any other previous group. We have an endless amount of tools and opportunities to truly be creative in discovering and pursuing our dreams. So reach for the stars, so you can wake up every day loving where you work, and what you do!
The Beauty of Self-Reliance
While it’s extremely important to maintain relations with family, friends and significant others in your life, I promise the feeling of independence is much more thrilling! Waking up daily and controlling your own destiny, creating your own rules, and relinquishing control from outsides sources is an empowering high.
Never Stop Learning
Educate yourself, and never stop. Development and knowledge doesn’t solely come from school. Comprehension is built off of experiences; good or bad! Learn from your friends, family, co-workers, and mentors. Gain perspective from art, travelling, develop new capabilities through reading, and learning from different cultures. Continual growth is an integral part of life, expand your social network and reinvent yourself as a brand!
This means take care of your body, your mind, your time, your space, and yes, even your finances. Haven’t you ever heard “You are what you eat?” When you feed your body and mind healthy food, exercise and sleep well thus, you valuing yourself. Be affectionate to yourself and respect the space you live in, maintain a clean and organized work place. Your home is your sanctuary; don’t give yourself the message that you are not worth taking care of. Lastly, don’t overspend and put yourself in unnecessary debt. Budget yourself with money management apps, tricks, and tips to diminish monetary pressures.
