Here's to a woman who celebrates strong women, who refuses to let her voice be diluted, altered, or silenced. Author, Rupi Kaur is changing the world by being herself.

...

i want to apologize to all the women i have called beautiful

before i’ve called them intelligent or brave
i am sorry i made it sound as though
something as simple as what you’re born with
is all you have to be proud of
when you have broken mountains with your wit
from now on i will say things like
you are resilient, or you are extraordinary
not because i don’t think you’re beautiful
but because i need you to know 

you are more than that.

...

you tell me to quiet down cause 

my opinions make me less beautiful 

but i was not made with a fire in my belly 

so i could be put out 

i was not made with a lightness on my tongue 

so i could be easy to swallow i was made heavy

half blade and half silk difficult to forget 

but not easy for the mind to follow

...


i stand

on the sacrifices

of a million women before me

thinking what can i do

to make this mountain taller

so the women after me

can see farther

-legacy.

...

we all move forward when

we recognize how resilient

and striking the women around us are

...

Celebrate women like Rupi Kaur with us every morning.
