Strong Women


Hey Gratisouls!! Since this is the last episode of my never-ending series (haha) I thought to end it by adding my inspirational women as well!! Although International Women’s day is over now, I think that we can celebrate womanhood on any day!! We don’t need a specific date to celebrate the spirit of womanhood, right?

I have always been an indecisive kid since 1996 (my birth year, figuratively speaking (not literally)) I have more than 1 inspirational woman in my life. I’m not being diplomatic here and deviating from my own topic of telling you about only one inspirational woman… I have many, that’s because everybody is different from others and they have different distinctive traits in them which I wish to inherit and imbibe in myself.

So diving into the last segment of the last episode of this series, I’ll tell you about my inspirational women.


Rhonda Byrne

Before I decided to start my blog, I stumbled upon this book called, “The Secret”- by Rhonda Byrne. It really changed my perspective about life. The words that she has used in this book are so powerful that it’ll resonate around you for a very long time and you’ll feel that it is so relatable. It’s like an eye opener for everyone! I got the inspiration to write and express my feelings after reading this book!! If you haven’t read it, do give it a read!! She has written 10 series of ‘The Secret’ and there’s also a movie on it. I’m currently reading her second book, “The Power”, let’s see how it goes!! I wish to imbibe her choice of strong words and her positive perspective in myself and in my writing. Hopping over to my next inspirational woman..


Lilly Singh

For the past few years, I have been following Lilly Singh aka Superwoman and I have always admired her a lot. I love her confident personality, her subtle sense of humor, her positive aura that she has on people and basically how she is as a human. I’ve never met her yet (I hope to meet her in person someday though). She is a Youtuber and makes extremely relatable videos which help people to connect with her easily. Her confident personality and relatable perspective is what I admire the most about her and would like to inherit in myself!


Bruised Passports

Recently I have been obsessing over Savi and Vid from Bruised Passports. They are a couple who have left their jobs long back to travel the world full time together!! Sounds like a dream right? Well, they have worked extremely hard for this dream. They both have a very strong, open-minded and positive opinion about life, about society and almost about everything. Savi handles the creative part and her husband, Vid handles the photography part. Her liberal, positive and strong opinions, and her ‘never-give-up’ attitude towards achieving your dreams are some of the character traits that inspire me and I would like to imbibe in myself!!


Gratisoul mom

Well, these three are my virtual inspirations who inspire me in real life, and my real life inspirations are my mom and my bunch of girl-friends that I am blessed to have in my life!! Just like every child’s mom, my mom has always supported me through all my good and bad days, standing strong by my side making your Gratisoul feel more positive and stronger every day! So now you know who is the real Gratisoul here (haha)!

Gratisoul FRIENDS

My friends who have always motivated me to be a better person, always supported me when I felt low and uplifted my mood in seconds. I don’t have best friends, I have a family! They are strong, independent and positive women who are the backbone and support system of your fellow Gratisoul!!

These are some of my inspirational women!! Who are yours? You are free to tell about them in the comment section below! Let’s bond over our inspirations!!

I hope you loved this series! I am attaching all the links of the series written by my awesome-sauce Gratisoul community below, you can re-live their stories of inspirational women again!! Cheers to womanhood!

This is one of the best posts I’ve read about international women’s day. I really love that you included different types of people with different types of impact, and how it has impacted you specifically. And the fact that you added your mother and your friends, because of course those should be the first people to celebrate on such day!
