Our Favourite Quotes!
With International Women's Day taking place last week it gave us a chance to really think about the women that inspire us to dream big and believe in ourselves. Here at Proactiv, we know how important it is to feel comfortable in your own skin, and that inner confidence is essential for any successful woman. So we asked the staff in the office for their favourite quotes by women they admired and here are some of their top picks.
"Normal is not something to aspire to, it’s something to get away from.”
- Jodie Foster
"We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better.”
- J.K Rowling
"Here’s to strong women.
May we know them.
May we be them.
May we raise them.”
"Do not bring people in your life who weigh you down.
And trust your instincts … good relationships feel good.
They feel right. They don’t hurt. They’re not painful.
That’s not just with somebody you want to marry,
but it’s with the friends that you choose.
It’s with the people you surround yourselves with.”
- Michelle Obama
"Always be a first-rate version of yourself instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.”
- Judy Garland
"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner.
I believe in kissing, kissing a lot.
I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong.
I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls.
I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”
- Audrey Hepburn
"Be the type of woman that, when your feet hit the floor each morning, the devil says, ‘Oh crap, she’s up’.”
Here’s to all the amazing women out there- keep doing what you’re doing! Next week we will be talking confidence. What is it and how did we get it?
See you then!
