Happy International Women’s Day!
Random fact: I used to not consider myself a feminist. I think I was around 17 or so or so when someone in my family asked me if I was one and I said no and turned my nose up at it. I equated it with a bunch of women that were totally over the top and irrational about most things, and I didn’t want to associate myself with that. Then my mum said something that really resonated with me: “if it wasn’t for feminists campaigning – you wouldn’t even be where you are.”
Now this is the same line I give to any woman I meet that doesn’t want to associate themselves with feminism. As you can probably guess – I’ve totally changed my views now, and whole heartedly and proudly consider myself a feminist. I honestly believe that for anyone who believes in the equality of men and women – be they women themselves or not – being a feminist is only logical.
In honour or International Women’s Day, I wanted to share some of the best lifetime tips I’ve recieved in my 20+ years of life from inspiration women.
I’m someone who’s not a fan of big change (I always have to push myself out of that comfort zone thing), but at the same time someone who likes to switch things up every now and again just to keep myself from getting bored. For example, when it comes to working out, I change things up every few months or so – be it my macros, my training split, how often I train etc. Similarly, with my blog, I like to make big changes every now and again – sometimes this is away from the updating of my about me page, or change of the blog layout, often it’s quite focused on the content I deliver, my strategy and my general list of goals. Over the past year or so I’ve made a few minor to major changes over here on Skylish, and I wanted to share a few of these and my reasons behind them…
