I’m beyond obsessed with this video.

It came out a few years ago in the U.K., and I first saw it on Channel Four, which offers some of the best diversity in their programming and commercials.

I have this one saved to the front screen of my phone and it’s the little kick I need to get up and get moving when I’d rather just not.

I hope this inspires you, too. May it be of benefit:



Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

~ Maya Angelou. Read the rest of her poem here.
