Some of our days can feel chaotic trying to balance work, social life, free time, etc. (at least mine do). Don’t get overwhelmed though, instead, the little secret is to sit back and think of positive and inspiring moments or people in your life! Here are my favourite female icons who have managed to influence the world and are the faces of inspiration to many!
Frida Kahlo (1907-1954)
Well come on, you must have at least seen the flower-crowned artist once! Her eccentric style made her stand out easily along with her rebellious life.
Always being a strong and independent woman she would often cross-dress, smoke, drink, openly talk about her sexuality as well as embrace her natural beauty (the iconic mono-brow and faint mustache). Apart from that, she was one of the few females who studied medicine at that time!
Having lived a series of tragedies throughout her life never made her give up! Polio from a young age and a nearly fatal accident almost wrecked her life. But Frida didn’t lose her spark and she started painting. Her works usually portrayed abortion, miscarriage, or breastfeeding. Being so ahead of her time one can’t help but admire her courage and bold character!
Audrey Hepburn (1929-1993)
Old Hollywood’s elegant fashion icon and humanitarian would steal everyone’s heart with her charm and calming vibe.
Audrey was a super successful actress at her time, being an EGOT club member! (She was one of the few who had won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony award). Apart from her work, she was highly educated and could actually speak 5 languages.
She also devoted a great part of her life to being a UNICEF ambassador. Her caring and vibrant character would always shine. Here are some of her wise words:
“Believe in yourself”,
“Step outside your comfort zone”,
“Don’t forget to think about others”
These were some of the most representative values of her life.
Whether we’ve been through tough times like Frida, or we’re trying to make the world a better place, much like Audrey, it is very important to seek for inspiration in order to evolve. And the truth is we don’t have to look far… Look at our mothers and grandmothers who have been through so much for us, remember that one teacher who always believed in you and never doubted you. So many women around us are just extraordinary! Cherish the moments around them and appreciate their unique contribution to your life!
