~ 7 Amazing And Empowering Quotes From My Favorite Female Author~
@Shannonl5 wrote an amazing card about 5 empowering quotes from her favorite female super heroes that you should all read right here! She totally inspired me (not a shocker because she alway does) to right my own card about my favorite female author who seriously has some amazingly important things to teach us about life.

Im talking about JK Rowling of course!

She has taught me to be brave and confident, even if things didn't exactly go my way.
In an age where people are judged, ridiculed, and shamed because of how they look JK Rowling reminds me that my body is only the smallest part of who I am.
We are all afraid of failing, yet Rowling went from poverty to billionaire because she didn't let failure or difficult odds defeat her.
Because JK Rowling gave me a female lead that never sacrificed who she was for anyone and certainly not any man I got to grow up with the perfect female role model.
Sometimes we worry so much about making sure we follow the "right path" that we miss the chance to stumble upon something better. Rowling reminded us that risk is worth it.
And most importantly JK Rowling taught me that I can do anything as long as actually go for it.
Don't forget to check out the rest of the cards for Ladies Week!! All the cards involved will have these "~~~~" in the title!

Happy Reading and Rock on Ladies!

this is a great card.I had no idea J.K was so open minded.I really like the second quote.
@EllieDean YAS girl! I agree with everything you've said :) the Harry Potter series meant so much to me growing up, and I think it taught me a lot about bravery and facing the odds, and being a good person who is always there for your friends. The friendships between the main characters is honestly really inspiring :)
@ChosenKnight yeah!! She's spoken a lot about classism, especially since there's been a lot of debate in the UK over benefits. She's said over and over again that she and her children would have starved without them. And she's one of the only people to take herself off the Forbes' Wealthiest People in the World list because she gave so much of her wealth to charity. She's pretty awesome!
