“A woman in control, taking charge of her own circumstances in work & life. Someone who knows her worth and won’t accept anything less. She is not a ‘mean girl’ in fact, she hates ‘mean girls.’ She is empowering and inspiring to those around her. She kicks ass”!
Hey guys! I thought I’d come back today with a different blog-post than my usual. Being a “girl boss” has particularly been on my mind these last few days! With that being said, I figured I’d talk about it here with all of you! I’m sure everyone has heard the term girl boss…I mean I see it in social media just about every day!
1. TAKE TIME TO YOURSELF
You hear this all the time…make sure you take time to yourself. Many of us these days are on the go non-stop, always around people, often times doing the same thing everyday. Living your life in a looping circle can cause a rut and make you feel like your not living to your full potential, or wish you were doing something else with your life. Taking time to yourself can and will look different for everyone! For me, I like to find a good show on Netflix and watch a few episodes while pampering myself. This includes; a bath, exfoliating, face mask, and painting my nails.
2. TAKE CARE OF YOUR BODY
This one is pretty self explanatory. How can you expect to be your best self if your not treating your body right?!? Taking care of your body includes making sure your eating right, but also knowing balance is key. I think there is nothing wrong if you indulge in a few scoops of ice cream every now and then. The key to this is knowing you’re fueling your body with the best foods to keep it going! Along with this comes physical activity. I personally love going for runs and getting myself into the gym. I know the gym is not for everyone, taking a walk or trying yoga is just as good! No matter how much or how little, physical activity is physical activity. Get your bootay moving!!
3. SURROUND YOURSELF WITH POSITIVE PEOPLE
No one wants to always be around people who are negative. Surround yourself with positive, high spirits! These are the kind of people who will be able to motivate you to becoming your best self and follow your dreams. There is no reason to be around people who drag down your mood and don’t help you become your best self. Do not worry about being selfish, this is your life, let it manifest into what YOU want!
4. DRESS LIKE A SUCCESSFUL LADY
“Dress the part” is something you hear quite often. This saying definitely relates to the concept of becoming a girl boss. In order to be successful you have to have a plan, net work and this all relates to dressing the part. What if you were to meet someone who could widen your network while at the grocery store? If you were in there walking around in your sweats and slippers, that most likely isn’t going to set the best first impression. I always go with the saying, you never know who you are going to meet. Be prepared, look put together and get out there and widen your network!
Hope you all enjoyed this post! I love the idea of being a girl boss, looking out for other girls and empowering one another!
