I can’t stand shallow, cheesy “motivational” quotes that have no real substance or usefulness. They sound cute, they look pretty in a Pinterest graphic, but they don’t actually mean anything.
And look, sometimes, it’s nice to just pick a cheesy quote to use as an instagram caption.
I get it.
But when you actually want to communicate something worthwhile in a concise way, these may be a good place to start.

"I will not make myself smaller so they can feel bigger."
- Karli Sherman
I believe deeply that we should not make ourselves smaller, take up less space, dull our sparkle so others feel bigger or more validated.
Many of us who are “too much” of something, especially women, are frequently made to feel that we should tone ourselves down.
I believe we are NOT too much.
And maybe, just maybe, they are the ones who need to step up and be MORE.
Just a thought.
"Be the same person privately, publicly, and professionally."
Aspire to live a life and express yourself in a way that you don’t have to lie or hide parts of yourself. Choose to be the best version of yourself.
I’m not saying it’s easy, or that you’ll always get it right.
But doing what you know to be right, and doing your best - THAT is what produces happiness! AND a better community! We can change the world here, people!
