All women should be feminists if this quote is the definition of what it means to be a feminist. We should all see women as smart, gifted, and tough, and it’s very telling that she has to use this as what feminists think. Does this mean that it’s not a view shared by everyone? For so long women had to fight just to be considered equals in society and get the right to vote. Even today in America women earn less than men in the same jobs and roles. Worldwide women are still viewed as second class citizens. Why? Let’s all adopt the viewpoint in this quote.

It does take courage to make a stand and go up against your enemies, but what happens when it’s your friends that you have to stand up to? This is when it becomes very hard indeed to go against the grain and stand up for what you believe is right. So many times young women are lured into what their group of friends is saying or doing, even when they know it’s not right. It may end up that you’re not friends with those people anymore, but you’ll make new friends that share your values.

“But on a Sunday morning when I want to grab an omelet over girl talk, I’m at a loss. My Chicago friends are the let’s-get-dinner-on-the-books-a-month-in-advance type. We email, trading dates until we find an open calendar slot amidst our tight schedules of workout classes, volunteer obligations (no false pretenses here, the volunteers are my friends, not me, sadly), work events, concert tickets and other dinners scheduled with other girls. I’m looking for someone to invite to watch The Biggest Loser with me at the last minute or to text “pedicure in half an hour?” on a Saturday morning. To me, that’s what BFFs are.”
Sharing a morning quote can sparkle positive thinking and improve our life conditions. The messages that come across are simple, but they work as a reminder for something deeper we have read in literature or something that we have experienced in our own lives or seen happening in other people’s life paths. That is when our bedtime conclusions about what matters and what is trivial come to life and give birth to a fresh mentality, a way of thinking and acting that can really inspire ourselves and people around us.
“How sweet the morning air is! See how that one little cloud floats like a pink feather from some gigantic flamingo. Now the red rim of the sun pushes itself over the London cloud-bank. It shines on a good many folk, but on none, I dare bet, who are on a stranger errand than you and I. How small we feel with our petty ambitions and strivings in the presence of the great elemental forces of Nature!”
Gratitude is a key tenet in all major philosophies, religions, and schools of thought. That’s because gratitude is a foundation of positive thinking. We only have a limited amount of focus, so when you are able to be appreciative of what you have, your brain is unable to give life and energy to thoughts about what you don’t have. Seeing events in your life as gifts allow you to perceive how they may help you grow and become a better person, and the application of this attitude during tough times is the hallmark of resilience.
If your problems are dragging you down, think of a bow and arrow. the Bow is your problems and the arrow is your life. The bow is dragging you further and further back, but the further back it pulls you, the higher the arrow will fly. So the further you are being dragged back by your problems, the higher you’ll reach in your life when the problems are over and let go.
