WCW ~ Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey is one of my role models, therefore, she is this week WCW. For me, WCW is about powerful women that I can look up to. Women that have risen above their problems or women that talk about things. Women that speak up against wrongful doings. Or just work in a charitable way.

Oprah had a tough childhood and she didn’t let that hold her down. She is known for her charity work, her talk-show and her compassion to others. I know that she has her own website where she shares so many wonderful things. Check it out here.

She came from nothing at all and is now one of the most powerful women around. When I grew up I used to watch her tv-show at least twice a week and many things she said on her show really stayed with me and helped me try to navigate some of the more tough times in my life.

I know that there has been some talk about people in Amerca wanting Oprah to run for president and I would not mind her being the president. I think she could be a wonderful leader. But I have also read that Oprah doesn’t want to run for president and I can respect that. I just hope that she will continue with beeing her and a role model for so many people.

Here are some of my favourite quotes:

“Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.”

“Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher.”

“Follow your instincts. That’s where true wisdom manifests itself.”



Self-Care Saturday

I am a firm believer in self-care, that’s why I want to share with you one of the things I do to take care of my self. And that is: taking the time on a busy day and just take a couple of deep breaths and give me time to not stress. To not think of anything other than my self. In these moments I don’t look at social media, I don’t study, I don’t answer emails and I don’t think of anyone else but me. This gives me a chance to relax and just feel how I am feeling and it gives me perspective over so many things.

I am not the best person on self-care, but I am trying to get better. That is another reason why I want to share with you what I do over the next following weeks. We all need to take care of yourself and sometimes be a little selfish with our time. To charge your batteries.

I really like this that Lalah Delia said:

“Self-care is how you take your power back.”

So please take care of yourself. You are an amazing person that is entitled to put yourself first. Just take 5 minutes to breathe on a stressful day. Drop everything and just breath. It always makes me feel better.

Love, Nea

Audrey Hepburn – WCW

For as long as I can remember I have always looked up to Audrey Hepburn. My father introduced me to her movies when I was a teenager and I love them. My favourites are: “Sabrina” and “Breakfast at Tiffany’s“.

This is why she today is my Woman Crush Wednesday. What I mean about WCW is a strong woman, alive or dead, that I look up to. This Monday I used one of Audrey Hepburn’s quotes in my Motivational Monday post. She has had a big influence on many peoples lives and I know that she has had a big one in my life. She is my role model for so many reasons.

I know that after she had done a lot of successful movies she started working with UNICEF. She said this about UNICEF:

“I can testify to what UNICEF means to children because I was among those who received food and medical relief right after World War II.”

She was a great humanitarian and I love so many things she has said. Her compassion and kindness. I have read somewhere that she didn’t think she was beautiful. But I think she was beautiful both on the inside and the outside. I love how she wanted to help other people. This is another favorite quote from her:

“Remember; if you ever need a helping hand, it’s at the end of your arm, as you get older, remember you have another hand: The first is to help yourself, the second is to help others” 

I am sad that she died when she was only 63 years old, in 1993. I was three years old at the time, and I didn’t even know who she was. But now I know and I will always love her movies.

And I have to admit I have watched Sabrina and Breakfast at Tiffany’s so many times that I think I remember all the lines. And one thing that really surprised me was this quote:

“I’m an introvert… I love being by myself, love being outdoors, love taking a long walk with my dogs and looking at the trees, flowers, the sky.”

This because its so much like myself and she was a big movie star. I didn’t believe that they could be Introverts. But I have learned that this is so wrong. And I am amazed by all the things she has done. She really followed her dreams and did it her way. She will forever be a Role Model for me.

Here is a list of some of the best quotes Audrey Hepburn has said:

  • “For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”

  • “I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”

  • “Make-up can only make you look pretty on the outside but it doesn’t help if you’re ugly on the inside. Unless you eat the make-up.”

  • “Pick the day. Enjoy it – to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come… The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present – and I don’t want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future.”

If you want to know more about Audrey Hepburn google about her or read one of the many books about her life. And of course, watch some of her movies. They are fantastic.


October 8 ~ Motivational Monday

Today’s motivational quotes are from an amazing person that I have admired for as long as I can remember. Sadly she is no longer alive. But I know that she never will be forgotten

“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible!’’ ~ Audrey Hepburn

I love this quotes because it gives me hope and I really believe that anything is possible if you keep fighting for it. Almost nothing worth having in life just happens without working for it. I have worked hard to be where I am today and motivational quotes have helped me when I have needed some extra motivation.

So don’t give up. Everything is possible!
