WE HAVE THE POWER .
Yes, ladies ! Let's just shout it !
I had to write this post as soon as I discovered an amazing series produced by Amanda de Cadenet. I don't know how it happened, but I cannot be more grateful. Serendipity they call it I guess.
Amanda is an outstanding British photographer, TV personality and all in all, INCREDIBLE WOMAN. She is currently creating the most amazing interviews which you can discover on her YouTube channel .
Since I have started DEVOURING the episodes, I feel I am constantly learning, discovering myself and becoming more positive, optimistic and ultimately, EMPOWERED. They have trully touched me and I couldn't be more self-conscious yet utterly happy about an addiction than I am about this one hehe.
Since I turned 20, I must admit I began feeling more and more interested in my femininity, career and well-being. It's so easy to give advice about how you should/shouldn't feel, about what you should/shouldn't do, but in the end, it all comes from within, from your own inner voice, from your "eagle eye" that can pierce horizons and look way ahead in the future to prevent certain actions to happen, or to actually make things happen. You might as well call it intuition, and us women, sure have that and plenty ! :)
Nevertheless, listening to Amanda's conversations with such graceful voices, talking about their experiences, lives, convictions and mistakes, definitely gives you more guts and faith to belive that YOU as well can do it! I sometimes even feel like screaming how much I love being a woman, and how ready I feel to embrace life and new experiences. I've had my share of ups and downs, but oh, that sounds so ignorant and immature, when I remember I'm only 20. I have a whole lifetime ahead of me and I am totally ready to say: BRING IT ON, FUTURE!
But isn't it so nice to have a little help sometimes, especially when your mom isn't there to offer you her words of wisdom ?
So, girls, LISTEN TO OTHER WOMEN! There's nothing more empowering than hearing stories and relating to them. Whether these videos will bring a smile on your face, or tears in your eyes, either way, it means they have been effective and I am so happy to share them with you !
To give you a taste of what these "Conversations" look and sound like, I've embeeded below a small part of an interview featuring one of my favourite women - Ivanka Trump !
