Where did the time go? In just the blink of an eye, we’ll be leaving 2015 behind and starting fresh with the New Year. It’s crazy how fast it feels that time flew by, but it also feels like so much has changed when you reflect back on all that happened this past year.
We’re fortunate that we have tools like social media that allow us to look back on thoughts and experiences from the past. There’s no doubt that platforms like Twitter are powerful tools for spreading messages of all sorts. The good, the bad, and the ugly – it’s all there. Whether it’s causing feuds between Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj, or spreading awareness with hashtags like #PrayForParis, Twitter heavily impacted our society in 2015.
Because we’re all about being positive, we’ve come up with a list of some of our favorite inspirational tweets from 2015. We love a good tweet that makes us feel motivated to be our best selves, and these tweets make us want to spread positive messages of our own. Although not every tweet can break the internet like Kim Kardashian can, we feel great knowing that so many people out there want to inspire others through their accounts.
So sit back, relax, and reflect back with us on our favorite inspirational Twitter moments of 2015.

4. When Zendaya made us proud to represent our own culture.
5. When Ray Lewis encouraged us to push through the pain.

Copy: So many people are so quick to comment negative opinions this month. Yes, judgement on social media comes from people who, 99% of the time, have no idea what they’re talking about, but I’m human, and I’m not going to lie, I did let the negativity get to me a little.. I came to a realization that when one gets to this point, it’s important to rethink why you’re doing what you do. What your message is. What you have to say.
No, I don’t have the same body type as the other models in shows. No, I don’t think I’m the best at any given show. Yes, I want to have a unique walk but I also know I have to improve. No, I’m not the first or last model of my type in this industry. You can make up all the reasons you think I am where I am, but really, I’m a hard worker that’s confident in myself, one that came at a time where the fashion industry was ready for a change. I’m just doing my job. I represent a body image that wasn’t accepted in high-fashion before, and I’m very lucky to be supported by the designers, stylists, and editors that I am: ones that know this is fashion, it’s art; it can never stay the same. It’s 2015. But if you’re not one of those people, don’t take your anger out on me. Yes, I have boobs, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs, but I’m not asking for special treatment. I’m fitting into the sample sizes. Your mean comments don’t make me want to change my body, they don’t make me want to say no to the designers that ask me to be in their shows, and they definitely don’t change the designers opinions of me. If they want me in their show, I’m in it; if they don’t, I’m not. That’s just how it is and how it will be. If you don’t like it, don’t follow me, don’t watch me, cause I’m not going anywhere. If I didn’t have the body I do, I wouldn’t have the career I do. I love that I can be sexy. I’m proud of it.
I’ve said it before… I hope everyone gets to a place in their life where they’d rather talk about the things that inspire them over the things that bring others down. At least be open if not part of the change, because it’s undeniably happening.
Happy PFW xx G
