Alright, if you're a woman then it's a great year to be alive! Let's face it, the past few years brought a giant spurt to women empowerment and an introduction to freedom. I mean if Saudi Arabia can legalize women driving this year then the world has officially grown to our favor! Amen to that! Independence actually means that you're able to grow and do whatever you want and whenever you want. But what defines you?
Well if you take shit from no one and do shit for no one other than yourself then honey, you're not selfish, you're a grownass woman living a grownass life! You're the boss of your own actions and no one can tell you otherwise.
Alright, we've got major role models to look up to. There's no less women in the world fighting for women empowerment and Queen B, she's definitely taught us how to slay. She continues to do so too from the very beginning...Remember Destiny's Child?
It's amazing really, there was a time when women weren't allowed to work and now feminism is on the rise and the fight for equality still persists. It wasn't easy to overcome the stigma behind the "roles of women" but that took a brand new turn!
It's funny really, there's still the notion of "that's no way for a woman to behave"- put your hands up if you've heard that! Embrace the way you want to live because at the end of the day, no one is going to live your life for you.
It's not just about the lifestyle you choose to live, gaining empowerment has been beneficial for women struggling through problems of abuse. Now they're able to speak up about and against sexual as well as domestic abuse. That's one of the biggest achievements made by us.
Alright, we get it. It's only been beneficial for us but let me just stop you right there, you do realize that since the topic of abuse has been brought in the spotlight, more men have spoken up about their traumatic experiences?
Well bringing abuse to the limelight is the major achievement made by women and let's look at the little things that we've made better, shall we? For starters, makeup doesn't identify us and it's now grown to the point that men too have embraced their love for the art.
Oh and by the way, we're strong enough to handle our own selves now. It's not about "owning my heart" anymore, we give it to who we please. The best part about being independent is how we don't need a man to make us happy!
Well being an independent woman means you introduce your men to the right way of raising their daughters. Hey, if you can't understand the effects of your actions then you cant possibly help your daughter through it!
You know you're an independent woman when you don't need anyone else to do your work for you. You can do anything and everything you put your mind to, there's absolutely no one you need to rely on and that's what makes you so great.
An independent woman never loses her value no matter where she is. She understands her own worth and makes sure she spends her free time doing exactly what she loves. You know what that means? You don't need to rely on anyone, you are your own woman!
No matter what the work is, an independent woman can always complete the work herself. She doesn't need a leader, she is her own leader. That's the best part about standing on your own feet, it saves time, builds confidence and makes you one hell of a woman!
If you're an independent woman then you're fierce. You know what you want and you go out there and get it. There's absolutely no room for various different decisions distracting you because you are confident in your ability to own.
Confidence isn't just in your walk, it's in everything you do. You know your true potential, your strengths and your weaknesses and you own it with pride. It's one thing to know your true capabilities but it's another to perfectly dedicate yourself to your flaws.
Gone are the days when women had to depend on men to take care of their expenses, you are your own woman and can take care of yourself. You don't need a man because you know he'll only drag you down. You have money, you know how to invest it and that's all that matters.
When you fly by private jet charter, you experience travel comfort known only to those who know private jets. And nothing illustrates this luxury better than celebrity private jets. Stars with their own private aircraft fly fancy.
John Travolta, the star of 70s cult movies like “Grease” and “Saturday Night Fever”, is not only one of the most famous Hollywood actors, but also one of the best celebrity pilots. John Travolta is a bonafide aviation enthusiast with five private planes total, which he parks on his front lawn. His most impressive aircraft is a customized Boeing 707-138 (as pictured above), a beast of a plane that he acquired in 1998 upon his promotion to an honorary pilot of Qantas, the Australian airline.
Oprah Winfrey’s production company HARPO bought her custom-built Global Express XRS VIP business jet to provide the media mogul and her associates with maximum aviation comfort. Oprah’s private jet features designer fixtures in the bathroom and galley, along with an exquisite all-leather interior. The aircraft was designed by Bombardier Aerospace to perform as a premier long-range business jet. Custom design allowed for an enhanced cabin layout with nine cushy leather seats, aesthetically-placed lighting, and additional luxury amenities. The jet cruises through the air at high speeds, made possible by two Rolls-Royce BR710 turbofan engines, which produce enough power to send HARPO clear across the map with only one refuel stop

The jet even automatically refreshes the air inside the cabin every two minutes.

Mark Cuban, business mogul and owner of the Dallas Mavericks, landed himself in the Guinness Book of World Records for purchasing his Boeing 767-277 online in 1999, making “the largest single e-commerce transaction”. Cuban modified the jet with large, custom seats to give his team’s lengthy players plenty of room while flying.
