Want a Role Model? I Found One!

This is a very short, and quick post. And a few quotes. Basically, all I want to say, is we should all hold Dolly Parton up as an inspiration, and a role model.

You want a strong woman? You do not have to look any further. She has lasted years, in a male dominated field. She broke through that glass ceiling, and did it with no apologies.

“You know, I look like a woman but I think like a man. And in this world of business, that has helped me a lot. Because by the time they think that I don’t know what’s goin’ on, I then got the money, and am gone”.

“I’m not offended by all the dumb blonde jokes because I know that I’m not dumb… and I also know that I’m not blonde.”

“When I got somethin’ to say, I’ll say it”.

“I’m not going to limit myself just because people won’t accept the fact that I can do something else”.

“I’ve had heartaches, headaches, toothaches, earaches, and I’ve had a few pains in the ass, but I’ve survived to tell about it”.

“I’ve had to go against all kinds of people through the years just to be myself”.

Dolly showing her strength!

You want to see a giving woman? Look to all the charities she has given to. Then, look no further than The Imagination Library, she set up, to help inspire kids to read. It is an incredible project. To learn more make sure to visit Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.

“I always just thought if you see somebody without a smile, give’em yours!”

“If your actions create a legacy that inspires others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, then you are an excellent leader”.

“You always want your people to be proud of what you have accomplished”.

Dolly is always so smart!

Want to see a loving woman? An inclusive woman? Look at her, and her acceptance of all people. It so incredibly easy to see!

“Of course Black lives matter. Do we think our little white asses are the only ones that matter?”

“I think everybody should be allowed to be who they are, and to love who they love”.

“Everybody has their own journey, they have their own way of doing things. And who am I to judge?”

“I think love is love and we have no control over that. I think all people should be allowed to marry”.

Let’s celebrate Dolly’s thinking! The world needs more of it!

Want to see a funny person? Check out some of her quotes below!

“It costs a lot of money to look this cheap”.

“I’m flashy, and I’m flamboyant. Had I not been a girl, I definitely would have been a drag queen,”.

“People say how you stay looking so young? I say, well, good lighting, good doctors, and good makeup”.

“People always ask me how long it takes to do my hair. I don’t know, I’m never there”.

“I wanted to be the first woman to burn her bra, but it would have taken the fire department four days to put it out.”

Oh, Dolly. You definitely make me laugh.

Dolly will forever be my #goals. Even if you don’t like country, ignore the music. Wait, don’t. She is an awesome song writer. Now, go learn all about a strong, confident, and giving woman And! What timing for this post, too! She has a new documentary on Netflix. You now have an even easier way to learn about this woman!

“Find out who you are. And do it on purpose”.

One of my favourite, and truly inspiring, Dolly advice!
