Warning: some naughty language!


If you want to rock life like a badass goddess, then I believe in taking the advice of some pretty badass women.

These goddesses have shared their insightful wisdom and the lessons they’ve learned in a way that continues to set me straight when I get off course or start to doubt who I am.

Most of what they’ve said are things we, as women, know are important, but we sometimes need to hear it in a certain way for it to stick. I’m a big believer in taking quotes that truly speak to me and the way I want to live my life, and putting them somewhere I can see them every day.

These are 10 badass quotes I have strategically placed around my office, home, and even inside my closet that inspire and challenge me to show up in the world the way I want to. Their themes range from being authentic and vulnerable to not allowing anyone to determine your value or worth.

May they impact, inspire, and make you think about how you want to live your own life:
