Beyoncé recently gave an interview to Elle magazine where the mega star dished on her feelings about women, living a good life, and giving less importance to society’s ideas about perfection.
“It’s really about changing the conversation. It’s not about perfection. It’s about purpose. We have to care about our bodies and what we put in them.
“Women have to take the time to focus on our mental health — take time for self, for the spiritual, without feeling guilty or selfish. The world will see you the way you see you, and treat you the way you treat yourself.”
Those sentiments are surely relatable to any woman (or man) no matter what she does for a living.
Beyoncé’s newest venture outside of music has been into activewear, and the line she created called Ivy Park was designed to be for all women in their current stage, while at the same time always striving to be better.
“I called it Ivy Park because a park is our commonality. We can all go there; we’re all welcomed. It’s anywhere we create for ourselves. For me, it’s the place that my drive comes from. I think we all have that place we go to when we need to fight through something, set our goals and accomplish them.”
The collection is a collaboration with Sir Philip Green of the retail giant Arcadia Group, and supposedly came about because Beyoncé practically lives in her workout gear and felt like she could create her own line that would better than anything else she was wearing.
Beyoncé is one person who clearly walks the walk in addition to talking the talk. The singer also reflected in the article about how she feels taking on such a big business move as the boss. She summed up her feelings pretty well, in a statement that we should all keep in mind.
“To me, power is making things happen without asking for permission.”
