Feeling uncertain about your career path? Stressed about your lack of a 401(k)? Or maybe just feeling the Monday blues? Then head over to this pep talk generator and prepare to feel so much better about yourself.
The generator is a project from Babe Vibes, "a collection of work by creative women" run by designer Kara Haupt. (Past projects include Smashing the Patriarchy and Heartbreak Stories.) The pep talks mostly come from creative women who will encourage you to stop comparing yourself to other people and focus on being the best possible version of yourself. Oh, and they'll also remind you that hard work is key.
Here are some examples:
You are a ball of fire. You are a flaming, feisty, bold ball of fire. You may feel like you get extinguished a lot, but you are set ablaze more times than you are drowned. You are smart, you are unique, you are interesting, you are creative, you are capable and you are important. You can kick ass when you set your mind to it. There is no obstacle you can't overcome. Don't stop believing in your ass kicking skills, ever!
The sooner you stop thinking about/focusing on/worrying about what other people are doing, the sooner you'll stop comparing yourself to them and feeling inferior. That's when you can do your best work and figure out what you really want.
For the love of God, ask for help. You can still be a badass independent woman even if you ask for assistance. Despite what you may think, we all need a little support. We all need our friends. And speaking of friends: call them up! Text them back! Make time for them! Because they are important and there’s more to life than working. (I know you’re quietly singing Stacie Orrico’s “(There’s Gotta Be) More To Life” right now. You’re welx.)
You were built to tackle the world. You are not the cheerleader for someone else. You are not meant to sit on the sidelines. You were built to create your own life and challenge yourself daily. Go out there and tackle today, I believe in you.
Though many of the quotes are targeted specifically at young women, the sentiments are pretty universal. Head over to the generator to get your own dose of motivation.
