Lately, well way more than lately, I have read and seen lots of stuff about being a girl boss or a boss babe. (Is that the same thing? who knows). This is weird, but I love it and hate it at the same time. I love the positivity and the tips about how to be a better version of yourself. I think it’s inspiring, at least, it has inspired me. But also, I am so sick of seeing the same kind of content everywhere. (or maybe I just spend waaay too much time online)

The title always goes something along the lines of “HOW TO BE A GIRLBOSS” or “HABITS OF A GIRLBOSS”. And routines, quotes, and bla, bla, bla. Again I don’t mean to offend anyone, I have enjoyed this type of content, and have found it useful. But it’s almost always the same, but for some reason I keep reading. Oops.

Love the good vibes

Yes, it can be inspiring, BUT, I don’t know if this is just me or what, but the girl boss/boss babe thing, can really stress me out. It’s like someone is telling me to BE PERFECT, do this and do that. I know that’s not the intention, but that’s how I feel.

Anyways, I am just going to sum up the GIRL BOSS “principles” for myself for future reference. (By the way, I prefer girl boss rather than boss babe. It’s kinda weird calling myself babe)

GIRL BOSS “principles” summed up

fashion, style, and outfit image
  • Dress to impress (because looks DO matter)
  • Know yourself (strengths, weaknesses, goals, purpose)
  • Work and self-improvement (learn, read, challenge yourself, set and achieve goals)
  • Positivity (smile, enjoy the little things, be grateful, journal maybe?)
  • Self-care habits (drink water, eat healthy, get enough sleep, wake up early, and take care of skin, exercise)

Also, I don’t think this is mentioned enough, but …. Social skills. I know mine usually suck so I am working on that.

I love my list but of course, easier said than done.
