23 Nov Inspirational Woman of the Day: Olivia Munn
By: Carla Bianca V. Ravanes
“Live the life you’d be envious of if you saw someone else living it. This is my personal mantra. Whenever I’m going through a difficult time, like a breakup, and I’m wishing to be the person who could get over it and move on, I tell myself to be that person. Instead of waiting to be inspired by someone else and being jealous that they’re living a life I wish I had, I tell myself not to wait for that moment and to start being the person I want to be. If you wish you were the woman who went for that big promotion, learned a second language, dumped that guy who cheated on you, then just be that person. Think, if I have the energy to wish for it, I have the energy to do it.” – Olivia Munn
It’s the beginning of yet again another week and as we begin the week after quite a long vacation, we always need some sort of motivation. And today, our inspiration is the beautiful and smart Olivia Munn.
Women who empower women is my absolute favorite thing in the world because I have always believed that women should help each other instead of tearing each other down. And I realized that the only way to empower others is to be empowered ourselves.
Many people think that being empowered means being the boss just like Miranda on The Devil Wears Prada. They believe that empowerment is all about bossing other people around, shouting at them, and constantly competing with them. But the truth is, empowered women are those who are kind enough to lend a hand. Those who don’t
viciously bring others down but raise them up. And the only women who can do this are the ones who happy enough in their own skin and those women who understand that there is room for every woman to win.
The truth is, the only way one can do this is if they are happy and content with their own life. And the only way to do this is to go after the things you want in life instead of wishing for them and envying those who were brave enough to explore the life they wanted. It begins with you, your life is a choice, so begin going after the life you want and soon, you will find yourself happy to help other women to do the same.
