Leave a comment

Initiates, it’s Shailene Woodley’s birthday! Today, Shailene is turning 23 and to honor such an empowering woman who inspires us each and every day we picked her 23 best quotes:

1. “My biggest thing is really sisterhood more than feminism. I don’t know how we as women expect men to respect us because we don’t even seem to respect each other. There’s so much jealousy, so much comparison and envy. And ‘this girl did this to me and that girl did that to me’ And it’s just so silly and heartbreaking in a way.”

2. “I think the most important thing in life is self-love, because if you don’t have self-love, and respect for everything about your own body, your own soul, your own capsule, then how can you have an authentic relationship with anyone else?”

3. “The time is now, my friends. It is now.”

4. “I can’t change anything in the world in the same way that none of us can change anything in this world, but we can change ourselves and stand up for what we believe in and talk about it.”

5. “I have one life to live, and it could end any minute, so I’m going to appreciate every single moment. I’m going to own my day before my day owns me. Show up the way you expect others and the world to show up for you, and that’s all there is to it. Life is too fleeting, too unpredictable and too unfair to focus on anything else.”

6. “You ride the wave and it eventually crashes on the shore. That doesn’t work out! I’m going to just sit here and paddleboard.”

7. “I never want to have to sacrifice my integrity for the machine that is Hollywood. I want to create art.”

8. “We’ve got to fight for what we believe in, be passionate about it, and not stop talking at all costs because this world is amazing and I think we should all treasure it for a long time.”

9. “For me, one of the things that I’m so passionate about in life is empowering young girls to reconnect with their own power.”

10. “Simple things like smiling at strangers and having kind, small interactions. I think that is what’s going to ultimately shift things.”

11. “Red lipstick makes me feel sexy, and I wear it for me, not for you.”

12. “You only have 30 seconds with a new person. I will give you a hug so you know I’m real, and then you’re real too.”

13. “Drama in our lives is the greatest indicator that we’re not focused on meaningful goals. On the path to purpose you don’t have time for drama.”

14. “Society has gotten to that point where we’re always looking for the next and the better and we lose sight of whats actually in front of us.”

15. “If we want to save the planet, then I think we need to start saving ourselves in order to do that.”

16. “Growing up and looking at magazines, I was comparing myself to images like that—and most of it isn’t real.”

17. “I struggle in real life trying to balance my natural connection to earth and the somewhat materialistic side of the industry I am in.”

18. “Everything is sacred and nothing is sacred.” I say that to myself every day because it reminds me that life is beautiful and we should take it seriously, but then, on the other end of the spectrum, you can’t take everything so seriously that you’re ignoring the present moment.”

19. “Self love heals the world.”

20. “I believe that life is about the importance of reconnecting to our roots and living.”

21. “Every day we wake up and we’re beathing, we’re winning.”

22. “You can be brave and jump off trains, but the truest form of courage and bravery is to wake up every single day and be ourselves.”

23. “You do you!”

From Divergent Faction we wish Shai an amazing birthday and another wonderful year, keep doing you Shai, we love you!
