Dress the part.
Above are some ideas of my own, but for more/better ones, visit one of my favorite blogs, What Would Khaleesi Wear. Tribal prints, linens and sandals for a Dothraki vibe and some simple, flowing dresses for when you want to be more princess and less khaleesi should do it. Don’t forget your dragon accessories. You are the last living dragon, after all.
Braid it up.
All Dothraki warriors have braids. And the longer your braid is, the more esteemed and fierce a warrior you must be. Braids are empowering. And versatile, too. Braid it all, braid a few strands, fishtail it, French it, milkmaid it. Whatever you want. Just so long as it tells the world that you have never been defeated and don’t plan on it any time soon.
Fire cannot kill a dragon.
Air conditioning out? Not a problem. Bath too hot? No such thing! Heat will not deter you. Know your limits, obviously (I’m not trying to have any burnt hands on my conscience), but next time you’re tempted to complain about the heat, remind yourself “I am the blood of the dragon. Fire cannot kill a dragon.” You can do it.
The next time you lay a hand to me will be the last time you have hands!
The days of taking s**t from anyone are over. If someone disrespects you or crosses you, let them know. No one gets to talk to you like that! You are a khaleesi of the Dothraki and the rightful Queen of the Seven Kingdoms! You are the Mother of Dragons! Do what you have to in order to get the respect you deserve.
Don’t forget your gentle heart.
Compassion is what sets you apart from the other great leaders of your day. You are a conqueror, yes. You are a fierce warrior. But your heart goes out to those who are mistreated. You defend the defenseless. You free the enslaved. They don’t call you “Mother” for nothing. Always stick up for the little guy. And be as brutal as you want to the assholes who victimize the weak. They deserve what they have coming.
There you go. The best advice I can give you. Happy khaleesi-ing. Let me know how it goes.
