Shameless Women *The Highlights*

July 2nd, 2009     by Desirée O     Comments

Every other Thursday I profile a new incredible woman, each from a different walk of life. Different professions, causes, backgrounds, ethnicities, orientations, and anything/everything else!

So without further delay, let me introduce…whoops, that’s right! Of the three wonderful ladies I’ve interviewed in the last few weeks, not one was able to get their answers back to me in time for today’s post. C’est la vie! They’re busy ladies and I’m sure we all totally understand.

Instead of leaving you with nothing, I thought it might be fun to share with you my favourite highlights from my past Shameless Women interviews.

Some are bits of advice, some are clever quips, and some are just random awesomeness caught in the context of a blog post.

There are so many I could choose, I decided to go with ten (in no particular order).

  1. “Embrace deviating from the norm.” - Amanda Mabro

  2. “You can’t go through life trying to achieve someone else’s idea of success.” - Darrelle London

  3. “Challenge yourself and do what is important to you because, in the end, you’re the one who has to live with your decisions.” - Julianna Yau

  4. “Never under estimate the power of conversation… it forms thoughts, people, actions, laws, and change.” - Aliya-Jasmine Sovani

  5. “Just do something, anything that makes life better for another living soul.” - Beth Smith

  6. “Giving a lot and being selfless is a rewarding experience and seeing the “bigger picture” is mind-blowing. But do not give up your identity; it is the very thing that will carry you through.” - Emily Hunter

  7. “We are fascinating creatures, and everyone has a story, a history, and usually some very witty anecdotes. I want to hear them all!” - Lana Gay

  8. “Hopefully by taking an active and critical interest in how we live our own lives, we can positively impact the lives of others.” - Amber Goodwyn

  9. “Allow for the possibility of change, in yourself, in others and in situations.” - Cheryl Dobinson

  10. “Realize that you only have one lifetime and you need to get what you want to out of life.” - Wendy Donnan

There they are, a few of my favourite lines from Shameless Women. Trust me there are many more!
