I first wrote about #GIRLBOSS back in July.  It was intended as my summer read but i somehow lost track and neglected to follow through. Recently however i felt it was time to pick it up once more.  I liked the way the book encouraged me then and i needed to feel that way again.

I needed something reassuring that let me know that i haven’t completely gone mad… yet.  Ever felt that way, like maybe you are going slightly mad? Where although you are perfectly accepted everywhere and with everyone you simply just don’t quite fit in? I’ve felt that way my entire life, but you would never know from meeting me. Sophia Amoruso has managed to captivate me in a way that i find myself completely enamored with her words.
Never did i expect to find so much of myself in a book. I now worship its pages and encourage anyone who’s ever felt a little left out to go on and read it. I know that i has solidified some of the changes i hope to be making with my life in the near future.  It is the boost i needed.
This post is about sharing some of the quotes by Sophia Amoruso that have resonated with me and have fed me in some way or the other.  I hope they do the same for you.

Abandon anything about your life and habits that might be holding you back.  Learn to create your own opportunities.  Know that there is no finish line; fortune favors action. Race balls-out toward the extraordinary life that you’ve always dreamed of, or still haven’t had time to dream up.  And prepare to have a hell of a lot of fun along the way.” – Sophina AmorusoEach time you make a good decision or do something nice or take care of yourself; each time you show up to work and work hard and do your best at everything you can do, you’re planting seeds for a life that you can only hope will grow beyond your wildest dreams. Take care of the little things—even the little things that you hate—and treat them as promises to your own future. Soon you’ll see that fortune favors the bold who get shit done.” “While I truly believe that you must have intentions to fulfill your dreams, I also think you have to leave room for the universe to have its way and play around a bit. Don’t get so focused on one particular opportunity that you’re blind to other ones that come up. If you think about one thing, and talk about it all the time, you’re being too obsessive. You might ruin it. If you let yourself meander a bit, then the right things and the right people fall into place. Some things are worth fighting for—don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely a fighter—but I really think that what is right should be easy. My dad has always said that the definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, and it’s so true.” 

“It’s the age-old concept of like attracts like, or the law of attraction. You get back what you put out, so you might as well think positively, focus on visualizing what you want instead of getting distracted by what you don’t want, and send the universe your good intentions so that it can send them right back.”

When you approach everything as if it’s a big fun experiment, then it’s not a big deal if things don’t work out.”

“If you believe that what you’re doing will have positive results, it will – even it it’s not immediately obvious.”
“The energy you’ll expend focusing on someone else’s life is better spent working on your own. Just be your own idol.” 

“Finally, though, I arrived at a point where I decided this was bullshit. I stopped feeling as if I didn’t belong anywhere, and realized that I belonged anywhere I wanted to be—whether that was a boardroom, business class, or on”

“It’s cool to be kind. It’s cool to be weird. It’s cool to be honest and to be secure with yourself.” 

“A #GIRLBOSS is someone who’s in charge of her own life. She gets what she wants because she works for it. As a #GIRLBOSS, you take control and accept responsibility. You’re a fighter- you know when to throw punches and when to roll with them. Sometimes you break the rules, sometimes you follow them, but always on your terms. You know where you’re going, but can’t do it without having some fun along the way. You value honesty over perfection. You ask questions. You take your life seriously, but you don’t take yourself too seriously. You’re going to take over the world, and change it in the process. You’re a badass.” 

“Bad bitches are taking over the world.”
