Inspiration can be a driving force in your life no matter what age you are. As women I think we are always trying to reinvent ourselves or to set a new goal for ourselves. Not sure what the rule of thumb is for how many times we can try? I say keep reaching for the place or person within that brings you peace and happiness. I think it's healthy and molds us into being more than we thought we could be. I believe you gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience that comes across ones journey. Basically, when you stop and look fear in the face and push forward it's empowering. To do this we look for inspiration from others… especially other women.
Looking for great words or great quotes helps me to make it through the day, week or month. It just depends on when the challenging occasion, tries to block my path. We are all stronger than we know. Sometimes we need inspirational messages to get us over the humps of our doubts. Think about what you want to achieve, even if its just getting out of bed to spread kindness. It's all relative... every hurdle, every goal, every dream, every accomplishment. Let's lean on each other and move forward together.
Below are some of my favorite quotes from inspirational women. I hope they can transform your day, or mood or whatever state you may be in... to a better place.

“A woman is like a tea bag – you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.” - Eleanor Roosevelt

“The question isn’t who’s going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.” - Ayn Rand
“If you look at what you have in life, you’ll always have more. If you look at what you don’t have in life, you’ll never have enough.” - Oprah Winfrey
“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.” - Maya Angelou
“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.” - Helen Keller

The majority of you reading today's blog may be on vacation. Crossing my fingers that you are checking off from your bucket list and conquering fears. Enjoy the new women you meet along the way. Learn from them, take a piece of what you learn and bring it home to share with others. If you didn't get the chance to travel this summer do not despair, social media brings the most amazing women of the world within reach. Embrace the gift.
