Do you realize how much pressure you put on yourself?
Pressure to be perfect, or not fail, or make everyone else happy. We do it all the time, until one point we can’t handle it anymore. Fellow girl bosses, perfection is overrated, failure is a lesson and the first person you need to please is yourself.
We constantly put this pressure on ourselves to be everything and anything; we define our social status by how busy and unavailable we are… how is that a life?
When I first came across the concept of a girl boss, it seemed to come with some heavy associations. I thought that to be a girl boss I need to have It all together, I had to be perfect and I had to constantly be everywhere. But if you have that mentality then stop right now. Stop thinking like that, because a girl boss is none of those things.
The beauty of a girl boss is that you get to make up what defines it and how it fits into your life. There are no criteria or conditions to meet before becoming a girl boss, you just need yourself and faith that you can do anything you put your mind to. That’s it. Nothing else.
A girl boss doesn’t have to be perfect, you don’t have to be running a business by 25, you don’t need to be Instagram famous tomorrow. We don’t have to rush through our lives and try to do everything because we think that will make us a girl boss.
You will become a girl boss when you realize that at the end of the day you are the one that matters. What you want to become, or who you want to become is within reach. But most importantly you are in control of your future and your destiny.
Along the way it will get messy, you will make mistakes and yes, you will fail. But those things shape who you are. A girl boss is not the entirety of your existence, and it can’t be because no words can sum up every amazing bit of you.
A girl boss is a reason or something for you to reach for, but it will not magically make your life perfect because that doesn’t exist. But being a girl boss can offer you the tools and the support you need to go make the changes you need to in your life.
