Boost of Inspiration

I wanted to share with you a few women who gave me a boost of inspiration in my lifetime. They inspired me in so many different ways. Maybe they'll inspire you to keep moving forward on your dreams as well, plus we can never have too much girl power.

"The most important thing is to enjoy your life - to be happy - it's all that matters." ― Audrey Hepburn, Actress

The actress, Gene Tierney, got her start in the movie biz, which is awesome, but the fact that she had no experience at all, gave her an embarrassing first impression. She was made fun of because of her acting, but did she give up? Not at all. She mastered her talent and practiced none stopped. This inspires me to not give up.

“To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.” ― Thich Nhat Hanh, Buddhist Monk, Peace Activist

“Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful.” ― Sophia Loren, Actress

There were thousands of ways, Thomas Edison, found that the light bulb would not work until he found a way that it would. This statement is logical for me since I'm one to make mistakes in my life, but from each mistake, I learn from it and many of you can probably relate to that. I learned from Ra Uru Hu that the next time you make a mistake, give yourself positive reinforcements. Think, "What did I learn from that?" It's not really a disaster or a mistake, its a beautiful process of finding out what does not work.

I know I said I'll share inspirational women, but these two men are too inspiring to leave out and it connected to my life, so I had to share.

"Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself." ― Coco Chanel, Fashion Designer

Professional surfer, Bethany Hamilton, lost her left arm in a shark attack accident at the age of thirteen. That seemed to be a major obstacle in her life, keeping her away from accomplishing her dream of becoming a professional surfer, with the support of her loved ones and constant training, she succeeded. This inspired me to never give up on my dreams. No matter what.

Another thing that I admire about Bethany Hamilton was that her experience didn't scare her out of the water. The link I am sharing here is a video of her swimming with fishes and a few sharks as well in Western Australia. Pretty amazing and super brave. I wouldn't mind trying this someday, but I want to swim with dolphins first. Go see her inspiring movie, Soul Surfer. It's truly amazing! I love it!

"Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!" ― Audrey Hepburn, Actress

“Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.” ― Sophia Loren, Actress

My mother, Queen Hajar Isis Akanqi, is one of the strongest women I know. She inspired me in so many ways. I'm proud to be her daughter.

"Beauty is when you can appreciate yourself. When you love yourself, that's when you're most beautiful." ― Zoë Kravitz, Actress

Love always,
Princess Hiyah Jahan Ara Akanqi
