5 Inspiring & Strong Women We Love to Love

Cassie Dewar

There are many game changing women around the world. Women who inspire others simply by being themselves.

They spend time thinking about what they want, how they can help improve the world and then they take action to get it done.

They have strength because they know who they are, what they like, what they want and what causes they support. When they do their work, it inspires others to be strong and do their work as well.

These five ladies in this list of 5 Inspiring & Strong Women We Love to Love are just a short snapshot of the inspiring and strong women there are in the world.  

We love the women listed below because they stand tall and speak out about what they believe in. We’ve included a very short summary of their lives with reasons why we love them. 

The 5 Inspiring & Strong Women We Love to Love are:

  1. Lisa Messenger
  2. Tara Moss
  3. Amanda Palmer
  4. Molly Galbraith
  5. Emma Watson

Lisa Messenger

Short story of her inspiring life:

Lisa Messenger is from a small town in Australia and led a relatively standard corporate lifestyle until the age of 30 when she started her own PR business.

In addition to founding the inspiring magazine, The CollectiveMessenger founded a publishing company that has helped publish over 400 books.

The Collective is: “True to our name, we are a collection of game changers, rule breakers, thought leaders and style makers with a common appetite for challenging the status quo”

Messenger is known for her entrepreneurial spirit and questioning the norm. She shares her story on The Collective website about how she went from being in the lowest English class at school to being an author of over 10 books – as well as editing a magazine that’s available in over 30 countries!

Why we love her:      

Messenger isn’t afraid to think outside the box – then act on her creative thinking. She calls herself the queen of “let’s jump in”.

You can tell by her book titles alone that she’s encouraging everyone to delve a little deeper to what we want to contribute in the world – and then go out and do it.

Some of Messenger’s books:

  • Happiness Is…
  • Cubicle Commando
  • Daring & Disruptive
  • Life & Love
  • Money & Mindfulness
  • Breakups & Breakthroughs

Tara Moss

Short story of her inspiring life:

Tara Moss has published nine fiction crime novels before publishing her first nonfiction book, The Fictional Womanwhich investigates her own experiences as well as common perceptions of women.

Starting out as a young model from small town Canada, Moss had an international modelling career before becoming a writer and journalist.

Moss writes extensively on her blog and social media about feminism, child rights and refugees.

Why we love her:

We love Tara Moss because she stands up for the rights of women and girls around the globe. Moss is theUNICEF’s National Ambassador for Child Survival.

Moss was challenged when she first became a writer and even took a lie detector test to prove she writes her own books.

She’s releasing a new book called Speaking Out (coming out May 20) which aims to give practical advice about how to present ideas and form arguments confidently.

Posted on Instagram, Moss previews her new book:

“One of my aims with this new book is to give practical advice to anyone who feels trepidation about the critics – both the constructive kind and the unconstructive – and the trolls. There are sections on forming your argument, public speaking, and a special section on online safety. But another aim is to build confidence and knowledge through shared experience. Because by retelling our triumphs and failures, and the responses we got along the way, we get a greater sense of strength. By comparing notes, we can learn to recognise and differentiate constructive criticism from the silencing and the trolling, and most importantly of all know we are human and in this together.

Amanda Palmer

Short story of her inspiring life:

Firstly known as the 10 Foot Bride street performer offering flowers silently to strangers, Palmer co-founded the band The Dresden Dolls.

After touring with the band for almost 10 years, Palmer expanded her artistic performances to solo shows around the world regularly couch surfing with fans.

Why we love her:      

Throughout her life Palmer has taken the time to listen to and engage with people.

She’s said that at her shows she would regularly spend more time speaking with guests after the show than she did performing.

Palmer’s very active on Twitter and in her online community, she’s an advocate for artist rights and she usesPatreon to release her work to her subscribers.

Palmer has a TEDTalk called, The Art of Asking which she expanded into a book – The Art of Asking: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Let People Help.

In her memoir (with foreword by another inspiring woman, Brené Brown), Palmer encourages people to share what’s inside them and ask for help whenever they need it.

From The Art of Asking:

“Asking for help with shame says:

You have the power over me.

Asking with condescension says:

I have the power over you.

But asking for help with gratitude says:

We have the power to help each other.


Molly Galbraith

Short story of her inspiring life:

Molly Galbraith is a highly experienced personal and fitness trainer. She helps women to have grace and compassion to “discover and accept what their best body looks like”.

Galbraith is a passionate personal trainer and past body builder – and is honest about her struggles with body image, dieting and training.

Why we love her:

Galbraith dedicates her time to encourage women to love their bodies for what it can do, not for how it looks – all through the supportive site she founded, Girls Gone Strong.

Galbraith recently went viral online for posting a picture of herself on Facebook emphasing that the image of herself at the beach wasn’t a before or after picture of her body shape – it’s a LIFE picture. Galbraith emphasises that:

This body has been publicly evaluated, judged, and criticized, and those judgments have been used to determine my level of skill as a coach and a trainer, and my worth as a person, both positively and negatively.…Today this is a body that is loved, adored, and cherished by the only person whose opinion matters — ME.”

Emma Watson

Short story of her inspiring life:

Emma Watson is most widely known for her amazing portrayal of Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series.

She has also starred in movies: Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Bling Ring, Colonia and the upcoming Beauty & the Beast.

Recently Watson shared that she’s putting her acting career on hold while she devotes more time to self study and work with feminism. She’s a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador and regularly shares updates of her campaign involvement on Twitter.

Why we love her:                

Watson launched the campaign HeForShe that promotes gender equality as a human rights issue.

In her speech at the launch of HeForShe, Watson was inspiring as she is clearly using her platform to bring light to gender issues that haven’t been discussed in this way before.

“In my nervousness for this speech and my moments of doubt, I’ve told myself firmly, ‘If not me, who? If not now, when?’”

Watson also started a feminist book club on Goodreads called Our Shared Shelf where a book is chosen once a month and Watson encourages open discussion and reflection on what the book contains.

We hope you’ve found some inspiration from these strong and inspiring women just as we have. 

We all have a voice.

Get clear on what you’ve got inside you.

Talk to people who support you. 

Write things down.

Create something.

Then share it with Inspirationery so we can benefit from what you have to contribute!

 

10 Quotes about Living Intuitively

Cassie Dewar

You know that voice inside you? 

You intuition is trying to help guide you on a path connected to your values, passions and dreams in life. Much of the information you think you need is already inside you. You just need to listen. 

We could all spend a little more time being quiet with ourselves and listening to what our heart wants – that’s why this month we’re focused on our Intuition! 

Spend some time listening to your intuition and see what comes up!

And read the 10 quotes below to get you excited about listening deeply to what’s already inside you. 

1. Your heart knows things that your mind can’t explain.

2. Follow your intuition, listening to your dreams, your inner voice to guide you. Katori Hall

3. The more you trust your intuition, the more empowered you become, the stronger you become, and the happier you become. Gisele Bundchen

4. Faith is a passionate intuition. William Wordsworth

5. A woman knows by intuition, or instinct, what is best for herself. Marilyn Monroe

6. Some people say there’s nothing new under the sun. I still think that there’s room to create, you know. And intuition doesn’t necessarily come from under this sun. It comes from within. Pharrell Williams

7. A woman uses her intelligence to find reasons to support her intuition. Gilbert K. Chesterton

8. There is no logical way to the discovery of these elemental laws. There is only the way of intuition, which is helped by a feeling for the order lying behind the appearance. Albert Einstein

9. The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift. Albert Einstein

10. Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. Steve Jobs

Journaling With Your Intuition

Cassie Dewar

Ok, first thing I want to say is that there is no right or wrong way to do this.

The experience of journalling is different for everyone and you should try a few different ways to find what type of journalling really resonates with you. Maybe it’s keeping an art journal. Maybe it’s a sentence a day. Or my personal favourite… unconscious streams of thought otherwise known as journalling with your intuition.

If you want to give this type of journalling a go, one of the main things to remember is to be kind to yourself.

You’re exploring ideas and using your intuition to write. Not everything has to make logical sense and not everything has to have a purpose.

Don’t try hard to censor yourself.

Don’t bother judging what comes out.

What will be will be and you don’t have to show anyone or use every piece of writing you get down.

There are different strategies you can try to write with your intuition.

Take a moment before you start writing. Breathe deeply and connect with yourself by placing your hand on your heart.

Perhaps thank yourself for sitting down and taking the time to write. Or set an intention for the writing session – perhaps patience, kindness, forgiveness or love for whatever comes up.

Here are a few ideas you can try when you start putting pen to paper:

  • Free write. Write down whatever comes to mind. It should look like a strange stream of consciousness e.g ok I’m going for it, I’m writing stuff down now. Not sure what’s going to come out but at least I’m starting right? Whoa this is a pretty blue pen, and my chair is so comfy. This feels weird but I’m glad I’m doing it….
  • Pause often. You could write what feels good to you. Then pause and reconnect with your inner self and see what else you feel needs to be written down.
  • Feel those feelings. Write about your emotions. What’s happening in your life right now? What makes you happy? What makes you angry? What are you wanting to change? Writing about your life can help you to figure out what’s really going on inside you. Don’t be afraid of what mind come out. Just let it flow and see what happens.  
  • Honour yourself. Write something to yourself. What do you want your future self to know? What do you wish you knew when you were younger? What do you think needs changing in your life? What do you want to do more of?
