Gone are the days of princesses waiting in towers for daring princes to come rescue them. Let's be honest, those stories were always pretty boring anyway. Now is the time of Hermione Granger, Katniss Everdeen, and Mikasa Ackerman. Now is the time of women kicking ass and taking names, to hell with the princes and knights in shining armor. I would much rather be one of those three than any of the fairy tale princesses waiting for a prince to slay the dragon. Ain't nobody got time for that.
Ladies, we have the power of the universe inside of us. There is nothing in this world we cannot do. When you fall on tough times the best thing you can possibly do is recognize the strength within yourself and to know that you can overcome anything. Life is too short to sit around waiting for someone else to help you up.
Say it with me now: "I am the heroine of my own story."
Now go forth and make it true. Stop waiting. Become the hero.
