I haven’t been around WMSB much lately, but I have been checking in on social media. There are a few accounts I’d recommend everyone follow for good encouragement, reminders or simply laughs. I don’t mean to be on a girl power kick, but ever since I finished Lean In, the state of the gender gap has really caught my eye. I figured it was about time I share these accounts with you ladies that could use the extra encouragement out in the world!
1) Woman in Power @womencontrol
This account shares world-wide proverbs, photos, and simple reminders that often help me keep my day in perspective.
The best thing about the future is it comes one day at a time.

2) Women Working @WomenWorking
Working Women has great advice about life, careers, love and honoring ourselves. It also retweets a lot of great links about real life career advice/tips/information.
Fill yourself with positive affirmations. Honor yourself. If you don't, no one else will.

3) Mandy Hale @MissMandyHale
Mandy Hale is the author of The Single Woman (@TheSingleWoman) and I relate in a huge way to her life. I’d strongly recommend checking her out, especially if you’re single and sometimes need a reminder that you’re not the only one trying to navigate this world that expects us all to be married… yesterday.
Happy Sunday, friends! :) pic.twitter.com/Z0LOPVUG6h

4) Akirah Robinson @AkirahRobinson
I really like Akirah’s account because she shares real life + encouraging tweets and shares.
Stop thinking you're not good enough to reach your wildest dreams. Just stop it.

Pizza last night, cardio and green smoothie this morning. Because, you know, balance. :)

5) Mary Beth Williams @embeedub
Now, I just have to make it clear that if you’re offended by swearing or intense feminism, Mary Beth isn’t for you. But personally, I love her account and its raw honesty. Plus, if you follow me on twitter you probably have a better idea of my political views than any other social media platform.
FB is fucking with users way too much. I promise you don't need it. Use it less. Delete the app. It feels good.

Just a reminder that skin cancer can kill your ass, from the surgeon general (& Ms Stage 4 melanoma survivor). http://t.co/lBUzwvk4Z7

Do you have any other suggestions? Who do you follow on Twitter that brightens your day or writes about what you’re passionate about?
