Thankful for these amazing women in my life, for how much they lift me up, and for how much they’ve taught me about the strength we have TOGETHER.

I am fresh out of college and fresh out of the toxic competitive mindset between women. With a mostly female population at my school, almost everything was reduced to competition. This past year (my senior year) I took a step back and realized how silly that mindset is.

Another woman’s success is not your failure. Congratulate her, support her, empower her, and in return you will not only feel empowered but you will have gained a friend, even if just for a moment.

In my opinion, some of the BEST #feelgoodfuel comes from supporting other women - even if that’s as simple as a compliment.

We are so often taught by society to live within that negative mindset of comparing ourselves to one another. That stops here! I want to be a role model for my own, and for generations younger than myself. That competition mindset stops with us.

Thank you MJ for creating a community where that doesn’t exist. For creating a safe space where women lift one another up without judgement and with the utmost confidence in themselves and in one another.

SO TRUE ! sometimes we see other women as a person who is taking away our light. We start getting jealous and that is so wrong! I am aso super happy for this platform here, because women can support women and be more successfull all together then they would be alone AND it makes so much more fun !! <3

Supporting and encouraging are so important. Staying positive and affirmations will have a boomerang effect on us all. I believe that! Smile
