I am that girl!

I haven’t blogged in awhile and I’m feeling extra expressive tonight, so I’m going to utilize my energies to the fullest!

Recently I purchased Alexis Jones’ book called I Am That Girl. It’s a motivational/inspiration girl empowerment movement that activist Alexis Jones has started and it has reached girls all around the world.

I haven’t finished it yet, but so far it is an incredible resource. It has me questioning so much about my life and really digging deep into who I am. She encourages girls to really love and embrace who they are and to take care of themselves, which isn’t something society really encourages these days.

I think the really cool part is that I just turned 21 and found this book 2 days before…so it’s almost like life handed me this guide to really make my 21st year of life a great one! With all of the changes I’ve made in the last year it seems to get kind of jumbled in my head sometimes, but this book has really helped me restructure.

I’ve been reminded to revisit myself and my desires, goals and ambitions. I’ve been challenged to figure out what it is I need outside of what the world is telling me I need. It’s really therapeutic to spend time just thinking about myself and focusing on me. It’s a “good” selfish and I highly encourage every female to look into this book and the cause!
