20 Sunday Memes & Inspirational Quotes To Get You Through The Sunday Scaries

Set the mood for the week ahead. Sundays are the best — and worst — day of the week. They are the best because if you’re not a procrastinator, you get to have a nice and relaxing day in your pajamas before the stress of the new week hits you. Conversely, they are the worst because you have to rush to get yourself ready before the week starts and you no longer have free time. An easy way to combat this is to schedule your week in a way where you don’t overwhelm yourself. This isn’t always easy to do, depending on your job. Sometimes, you have no choice but to be a bit stressed. If that is the case, you can consider therapeutic hobbies. It may sound idiotic but bullet journaling, crocheting, and coloring are just a few examples of activities that instantly put people at ease. A new trend is ASMR, which stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. In simple terms, it is the tingling sensation you get when something is particularly soothing. Youtubers and celebrities have started making these videos by means of whispering, eating, or tapping. There are several different kinds such as roleplays and page turning. […]

75 Inspirational Quotes From The World’s Greatest Leaders To Celebrate Black History Month

A celebration of iconic leaders and civil rights activists. Black History Month, also commonly known as African-American History Month, is celebrated in many countries around the world including the United States, United Kingdom and Canada, to recognize the greatest leaders, events and important contributions of African Americans throughout history. Originally created in the 1920s as “Negro History Week” by historian Carter G. Woodson and the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, and later — in the 1970s, starting at Kent State University — president Gerald Ford expanded the event to an entire month. Celebrated in February to coincide with the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln, president Ford explained that the United States needed to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.” Today, Black History Month is a time used to recognize the world’s greatest African-American leaders in all walks of life. From Thurgood Marshall, who was the first African American ever appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court, to Madam C.J. Walker – the world’s first African-American self-made millionaire, to Barack Obama – the first African-American president in U.S. history, who was re-elected to serve for two consecutive terms in the White House. In celebration of February being Black History Month, we’ve […]

Look on the bright side. With all that’s going around in the world and maybe even in your personal life, it can be difficult to stay optimistic. Still, we must somehow try to find ways to be optimistic no matter what life throws at you. It is easy to fall victim to negative thought and to allow negativity to consume you. Training yourself to be optimistic is a way to bring happiness to both yourself and others. Optimism even has numerous health and life benefits. For instance, some believe that optimism can help entrepreneurs succeed in their work. Similarly, in our daily lives, an optimistic outlook could help us relentlessly pursue and ultimately achieve our wildest dreams and goals. Optimism also promotes happiness, something we all strive for. A little taste of optimism can go a long way. A few inspirational words can help bring out that optimism and remind us of all of the positive things in life. Words have magical powers because they can move us, make us feel good and positive, and incite us to take action.

50 Short, Romantic Quotes About Love To Share With Your Partner

Because we love love. It is sometimes difficult to find the right words in a world where so much has already been said. It seems like every feeling has already been felt. Quite honestly, it makes me feel a bit unoriginal. But when your favorite person smiles at you from across a room, all that fades away. It’s you and them, and no existential question of “am I different from everyone else?” can stop the moment from happening. People find new words for love everyday, not to show off, but to express something that is their own. The human experience is impossible to replicate and thus the quotes that make us feel something other than alone are the ones to hold on to. People write to feel connected and we read to learn more about ourselves and others. As John Green once said, “Maybe our favorite quotations say more about us than about the stories and people we’re quoting.” Maybe her’s right. There are many theories on soulmates. My personal favorite is that there is one person for you in the world who is your 100%. Throughout life, you will meet 70’s and 80’s. If you’re lucky, you might end up […]

20 Best Motivational Quotes To Inspire You To Be A Better Person

Be the best version of yourself. No matter what the world throws at you, it’s important to strive to be a better person and inspire people to do the same along the way. It’s easy to fall prey to negativity. It’s everywhere! It can be seen every morning on the subway ride to work when people are just trying to get in, forcing themselves in, no matter who gets hit by their backpack. It’s in the loud neighbor’s voice and music blaring at ungodly hours. It’s in that jealous relative’s barbs. It’s always out to get you to lower yourself and give in to the negativity. And you are only human to give in. But being human also means you should step back and observe the situation and yourself before you blurt out something that you’re sure to regret after the fact. It does not matter if they started it; you are responsible for your own behavior, not them. That is why you need to hold yourself accountable every time you slip. But mostly, you need to choose to be a better person in any situation. That’s right, I believe that we can and should choose to be a better person. Below are 20 […]

25 Inspirational Quotes About Seizing The Day (Because You Only Have One Life To Live)

Carpe Diem! Making the most of every single day can be difficult. It’s not easy to stay motivated 24/7 and sometimes all you want to do is stay in bed to binge-watch whatever show you’re hooked on. That’s OK! But make sure you aren’t lounging your life away. Sometimes all you need is a little inspiration to seize the day and remind yourself to focus on today. And a great way to do that is to grab yourself one of these inspirational “carpe diem” quotes to get you started at the beginning of every day. When I graduated from University I was terrified of finding a job that I hate it. I knew that money makes the world go ’round but I also knew that I have one life to live and I didn’t want to spend it stuck in a passionless job. I could already see myself sitting at the same job 30 years from now because I pigeon-holed myself into doing something that I thought was right — society told me to. Then I spoke with someone who didn’t exactly follow her true passions. She told me, “Yes, I would love to do what I’m passionate about but your passions only take […]

25 Inspiring Queen Quotes That Remind You To Stay Fabulous

Fearless lives forever. Queen produced some of the most iconic songs to this day, it’s no wonder everyone knows who they are. There was something different about the rock band when it made its debut in 1973 that made it stand out from all other musical talent in the years to come. My first exposure to the British rock band was with Anne Hathaway’s “Somebody to Love” cover for the film Ella Enchanted. I belted along to the tune completely unaware of the mastery behind this song. It also wasn’t until I watched the 2018 biopic Bohemian Rhapsody did I truly appreciate the history behind the 6-minute song. Queen has become one of the most influential rock bands in musical history. The group transcend generations with its wild artistic expression and musical freedom. Everyone knows at least one Queen song, even if you don’t realize it. They are so popular that Bohemian Rhapsody was recently the highest grossing musical biopic of all time. After watching the recent film, I realized just how inspirational the band was as a whole. Freddie Mercury defied all the fashion rules up until his death in 1991. The whole band stayed true to their nature while pushing boundaries and […]

30 Boss Lady Quotes To Keep You Motivated (And A Little Sassy) So You Can Keep Your Eye On The Prize

A strong woman looks a challenge in the eye and gives it a wink. — Gina Carey For the longest time I struggled with the concept of being a boss.  I mean, me? A boss? At first it sounded like an unreachable goal but I soon realized everyone should strive to be the best they can be. I think a lot of it has to do with being a woman in a society that doesn’t necessarily always favor us. For example, a man and woman can be doing the same thing but a man is the boss and a woman is just bossy. But it’s a new year, so why go back to the old you? It’s your time to shine! You are THE boss, never forget that. Boss people have a sense of confidence and awareness about where they stand in this world. From my work life to my romantic life, the times I didn’t identify as a boss woman I let people walk all over me. I let people take advantage of me because I didn’t know my own worth. I thought I had to please everyone in order to fit in or have people like me.  But my purpose in this […]

Get it, girl. It’s a harsh truth, but living your most authentic life is often more challenging than it sounds, which is why having a list of inspirational quotes about life and daily mantras within reach can help support and empower you — even on days when you’re not feeling good about yourself as a female. You’d like to think of yourself as a confident, strong woman who walks to the beat of her own drum, but sometimes, we all need a little help getting past our moments of low self-esteem or insecurity that pop up every now and then. Being a woman can be trying, especially when society seems to prefer bringing us down, rather than raising us up. And, sometimes, even other women can make us feel this way, too, which makes embracing your own authenticity a struggle. Too often, we end up comparing ourselves to other women or to the image of what we believe we are supposed to be. But, the truth is you are already F.A.B — fabulous, awesome, and beautiful. But, every now and then, you need to be reminded of your own power and self-worth with the help of motivational quotes. You can […]
