Can bounce back, laugh at themselves, and keep going
Are gutsy, determined and not afraid of hard work, curveballs or stepping outside their comfort zone
Avoid clichés and fakery like the plague
Would rather not waste a single moment on other people’s bullsh*t
Are aching to learn and grow
Laugh… they are the chickies I love the most-est.
Stop settling for crumbs
Ditch the drama and the nasty self-talk
Start surrounding themselves with people who get it
Bravely step out into the arena of life and start kicking arse
Speak up when they used to shut up
Believe in themselves, dammit!
Someone buys a Secret Superhero Ring, or an Unstoppable Necklace and in tough, lonely, quiet, deep-breath-sh*t-happens moments, looks down at it and thinks: I’ve got this.
I see the chicks in my private Unstoppable Chicks group …
Supporting and encouraging each other
Checking in and holding each other accountable
Being the world’s and each other’s greatest cheer squad
Laughing and rocking at life together
Someone lands on my Chickie Blog
Someone signs up to read the weekly adventures of me+Carlos
I was the chick who tried hard not to draw attention to herself - in case even MORE people worked out that I wasn’t quite skinny / smart / sporty / pretty / perfect / good enough.
Because, in the eloquent words of the wise and wonderful Marianne Williamson:
“As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”
Amen to that sister!
They are not alone
That there is hope
That there is a different way to live, other than the exhausting (boring) race towards the beautiful (impossible) illusion of perfection
Well as another wise woman, Bridget Jones said, right before she slid down the fireman’s pole and showed the entire world her bum…
I’ve got your back like a big sister (only I won’t borrow your clothes and give them back with a big wine stain)
I call bullsh*t on chasing perfect
I call bullsh*t on living anyone else’s version of a life, we’re here to live our own!
I believe in the wise words of Brene Brown…“There is magic in the mess”
Paying attention to the positive
Ditching the drama
Remembering the chick you wanted to be, right before life got in the way. Believe me, she’s still in there. She’s just waiting for you to give her permission to step out and start living.
I’m SO glad you’re here, chickie.
Let's get this party started.
