Miranda Kerr has some encouraging and wise words to share with women everywhere.
The model and author of Treasure Yourself and Empower Yourself told Marie Claire México y América Latina in its August issue that women should embrace their unique qualities and encourage each other.
"What I'm trying to encourage, specially within young women, is for them to celebrate individuality, embrace their authenticity and really feel like they don't have to fit into certain type of box," said the three-year-old estranged wife of Orlando Bloom.
"Everyone is so different and we need to stand together and empower each other as women to be the best versions of ourselves that we know we can be. To achieve that, we need to feel our best, so we should motivate each other to eat healthy and expand on things we love doing. Some people are more intellectual, some people are really funny, whatever it is, we all have something unique to bring to the table.
"So, find what it is that you're passionate about, be true to your beliefs and don't feel that you have to be anything but yourself."
"It's really been a great lesson for me on learning how to prioritize my time and planning efficiently so I make sure that I have enough quality time with my son," said the Australian beauty. "And, obviously being a businesswoman and a mother and working with different companies it's important for me that I balance it all out so that I can give my best, first and foremost to my son, but then also to my clients, and take care of my cosmetic business Kora Organics," said Kerr.
"I'm definitely more organized now that I've ever been and that's good for me because I already have my next two years planned out with certain contracts that I have, but I make sure that I take a few days off to be with my son when I get home," said the devoted mother. "We read or dance together, we go and hang out with a playgroup or draw together. Those special moments are really important. I'm working ‘moth-er' not ‘harder.'"
