Happy New Week, Friends
I hope you find this 2-minute read on bossing up inspiring for your week ahead. Also, here’s a quote to carry out each Sunday that’s giving me peace of mind: “A Sunday well spent brings a week of content.”
Being Bold is Always In
“I know some people look at me and all they see is blonde hair and fake tits, and that’s okay. I know I’m not for everyone.”
This is what she said on a recent podcast interview, talking about her new book on skincare, Get The F*ck Out Of The Sun, reminding women everywhere to lean into our autonomy “hard, well, and daily.”
Your Authenticity is Your Power
I’ve always been attracted to people with edge. What other people see as turnoffs — she’s too loud, too bossy, too brassy, too boujee — I see as strengths. More than strengths, actually. I see them as superpowers.
I think many people confuse snobbery with high standards, and bitchiness with knowing who we are and what we want — and having the balls to go after what we want? That scares people.
“I’m not an effective person if I can’t live life on my own terms”
It isn’t what Lauryn says that’s super life-changing or monumental in her posts, but how she says it. She’s relatable and raw about what’s going on in her life, and it resonates.
She ends the segment with a boss bitch statement I cannot get out of my head because it’s just that good. She says:
“I am not an effective person if I can’t live life on my own terms. The reason why I want to build what I’m building is for community and purpose…I want to wake up every single day to be free to create and have independence. ‘Simply Being’ to me is about autonomy. Do it hard, do it well, do it daily…and drown out the noise.”
In the words of Cody Rigsby, I CAN RELATE. I remember explaining to one of my girlfriends awhile back that I was incompatible with the workforce, which yielded two results I’m proud of:
It made her laugh.
Saying it out loud validated my entrepreneurial craving, and (sort of) justified the reasons why I quit, and got fired from, numerous jobs in my early 20s.
In the words of Miley Cyrus, I can’t be tamed.
The real moral of the story here is to unapologetically own who you are and who you want to be — whether that’s with your career, through your appearance, or in your parenting style.
