32 Strength Quotes About Starting Over When You’re Ending A Relationship Or Following A New Life Path

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Change your name to Miss Movin’ On.

We are all guilty of staying around in something that was really meant to end. Maybe you spent a few months too many in a toxic romantic relationship. Or maybe you moved back home with your parents after college and just found yourself stuck there after a few years. Maybe you are at a dead end point in your career and need a fresh start. Maybe you are having a bad week.

Whatever the case is, learning how to acknowledge the past but move on into the future is one of the hardest tasks anyone can overcome. We are all creatures of habit in some respect. Wanting things to stay the same is a natural response to the fear that it brought up from the idea of things changing. We are here to remind you that change is a good thing!

Taking a leap of faith in a new place or finally calling it quits in your relationship can feel liberating at the moment. But once the adrenaline fades, we all need a little helping hand to keep us on the path to success. Once the clock strikes one in the morning and you are alone in your bed, you feel the weight of your decisions. Sure, you know it was in your best interests but having so much change around you can be incredibly jarring for anyone to take in.

Journaling is an incredibly useful tool. Writing out everything you are thinking and feeling can be your ticket to a clear head and a light heart. Remember that in transitional times, such as these, being honest with yourself and your needs should be at the forefront of your mind. Put yourself first after a time where others were putting you last.

So, when you find yourself deep in your feels about whatever has got you down and you need a friendly remind of the fierce boss that you are, turn to this list of strength quotes about starting over. In no time, you’ll be back on your A-game and ready to take this new chapter of your life by the horns.

21 Of Toni Morrison’s Most Powerful Quotes About Life, Love, Freedom & Responsibility To One Another

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

She was, indeed, beloved.

No one can prepare you for the death of a hero, and that’s what Toni Morrison was — a hero of the greatest order.

Today, the world lost the woman born as Chloe Ardelia Wofford on February 18, 1931, in Lorain, Ohio to Ella Ramah (Willis) and George Wofford, who passed away at the age of 88.

The American novelist, essayist, editor, teacher and professor emeritus at Princeton University, became a Catholic at the age of 12, taking “the baptismal name Anthony (after Saint Anthony), which led to her nickname, Toni.”

After earning a B.A. in English at Howard University in 1953 and a Master of Arts from Cornell University in 1955, she became a professor, marrying Jamaican architect Howard Morrison in 1958. The couple had two sons, Harold and Slade, and divorced in 1964.

Morrison went on to create a legacy, publishing some of the most highly acclaimed novels of all time, including Beloved, Sula, The Bluest Eye, Tar Baby, Song of Solomon and Jazz.

Her numerous awards include the Pulitzer Prize and the American Book Award for Beloved, later adapted into a film of the same name with Oprah Winfrey and Danny Glover. And in 1993, she was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

“If there is a unifying thread running through Ms. Morrison’s writing, it is perhaps nowhere more vivid than in ‘Song of Solomon.’ At novel’s end, after his odyssey through his ancestral past, Milkman has attained the knowledge that lets him situate himself within his family, the larger community and black America.

And with that, on the book’s final page, he leaps into the air, taking symbolic flight over a world in which he has found his place at last.”

To honor her memory, here are 21 of the best, most inspirational quotes from author and Nobel Laureate Toni Morrison on life, love, freedom and strength.

1. “Sweet, crazy conversations full of half sentences, daydreams and misunderstandings more thrilling than understanding could ever be.”

Beloved

2. “I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.”

26 Strength Quotes For Women Who Need An Encouraging Daily Bible Verse

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

To being strong inside and out!

Do you love having a daily Bible verse to read? When you pick a quote about strength it doesn’t hurt to think it comes as a little blessing from God.

As a young teenager, I remember opening my Bible and closing my eyes as I let the pages sift through my fingers. I’d drop it flat on the table and put my finger down on the page hoping that the daily inspiration I received would be picked by change.

So many times a verse I memorized as a child became manna for the future. Like little ticking time bombs, a word would finally make sense years later.

One time, while in the hospital delivering my 3rd child too early than I was supposed to, I was terrified about my heath and feared death. I remembered my grandmother loved Proverbs 23, and so I meditated on each phrase until my son was born.

How amazing those words became to me. I had never appreciated a single verse from that chapter, I suppose because I didn’t have to. Yet, during my time of need, the same chapter that my grandmother prayed each day became my mantra during the darkest night.

Bible verses about strength are inspiring for busy women, Christian or not.

From losing a friendship to gaining weight, sometimes things happen in life that just plain should not. It’s nothing you did.

It’s nothing you didn’t do which can zap your energy just trying to fix a problem you didn’t create. 

And if you did, it’s ever harder dealing with the fear and guilt of it all.

But when unexpected and expected change does happen, there’s this tiny emotional alarm that goes off inside and asks, “What could I have done differently? How could I have prevented this from happening?”

The intuitive nature of a woman drives her to think things over — and then think them over some more.

Doing so brings many blessings, along with an awareness of a few dangers. Looking inside can teach us important lessons, but staring into an abyss of regret ruins lives.

And it’s especially hard to look inside for answers when it seems there simply may not be any to find, or when those we find just don’t make any sense. 

Rehashing different scenarios can foster a sense of fear when what a woman really wants is …

14 Inspirational Quotes From Mexican-American Celebrities In Celebration Of Cinco De Mayo

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Deeply inspiring words from some of the most influential and famous people in the world.

Cinco de Mayo, which means May 5 in Spanish, is the annual holiday commemorating the Mexican army’s victory against French forces at the Battle of Puebla.

The historic battle took place in 1862 during the Franco-Mexican War. And contrary to many believe, the significance of Cinco de Mayo is not that it is Mexico’s Independence Day — because it’s not. That holiday is held on September 16 (or dieciséis de Septiembre).

Although Cinco de Mayo is a rather small deal in Mexico, in the United States, it has become an extremely popular day for celebrating and enjoying Mexican-American culture and heritage.

People all over the country throw Cinco de Mayo parties with traditional Mexican beverages, food, and music.

And if you’re not in the mood for a party, it can also make for a fun date night as well.

For many people in the U.S., Cinco de Mayo is a great excuse to eat tacos and drink margaritas all day long (though personally, I would gladly have tacos and margaritas all year long).

However, Cinco de Mayo is first and foremost an opportunity to acknowledge and honor the contributions of Mexican-Americans and their cultural history.

America’s Hispanic or Latino population — defined by the U.S, Office of Management and Budget as “a person of Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin regardless of race” — is currently the largest minority in the United States.

Only Mexico has a larger Hispanic population than the United States, and as stated on Wikipedia: “Over 60% of the Hispanic and Latino population in the United States is of Mexican ancestry. The influence of Mexican and Mexican-American culture is felt throughout the country, with the epicenter of this influence located in the southwestern United States, including Texas, Nevada, Arizona and Southern California.”

So it only stands to reason that the number of well-known and beloved celebrities of Mexican descent is growing rapidly.

Mexican-American celebrities have shaped our culture and history through music, entertainment, art, literature, poetry, film, television, sports, activism, politics and more.

Whether they came to the U.S. as immigrants from Mexico or are native born Americans whose family heritage includes Mexican ancestry, these people have made a wealth of important contributions to the United States.

This year on Cinco de Mayo, …

25 Sassy Quotes About Strength For Every Time You Don’t ‘Fit In’ & Want To Regain Your Independence

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Embrace your inner ferocity.

You’re not like other people, and that’s good. Celebrate your fierce independence; don’t stifle it.

Having independence is something to be proud of, and you shouldn’t let anyone tell you otherwise. But you probably already know that. In fact, you’re probably already expressing your rather loud opinion on the topic to everyone at your workplace. And maybe your significant other if he or she is being particularly smothering today.  

You’re sassy, strong and may be told to calm down, reign it in or listen to your bullheaded superiors. You just know you can’t do that. You’re you, and that’s powerful. That’s amazing. That’s right.

Relationships thrive on independence, so you shouldn’t sacrifice who you are to make them work.

And you can’t imagine going through life without your metaphorical backbone. You can’t even imagine saying sorry.

The world needs more independent thinkers and doers like you, even though the world criticizes you. The world is a better place with you in it.

You can do anything you put your mind to, and you don’t need anyone alongside you to accomplish your dreams. Not that you don’t want anyone, of course.

Sound familiar?

You inspire others, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need some inspiration yourself every now and then. It’s OK to feel like an outcast, as long as you realize that your uniqueness is what makes you “you.” Try not to dwell on the fact that you don’t fit in and revel in the fact that you STAND OUT.

If you identify as a fierce, strong and independent person who can dish out some sass when necessary, then these independence quotes about strength from other men and women like you will get your blood pumping again.

1. You can fly.

“Forget about the fast lane. If you really want to fly, just harness your power to your passion.” — Oprah Winfrey

2. You are your own person.

“Do you want to meet the love of your life? Look in the mirror.” — Bryon Katie

3. You can accomplish anything.

“The question isn’t who’s going to let me; it’s who’s going to stop me.” —​ Ayn Rand

4. No one can silence you.

“It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I’m not going to be silent.” — Madeleine Albright

40 Words Of Encouragement To Help You Get Through Even The Toughest Days

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

You can do this.

At one point or another in life, everyone reaches a point where everything becomes a little too much and it seems impossible to go on. You become lost in the haze of bad days and sleepless nights. You struggle to remember who you were before the event that changed you for the worse and even after the dust settles, you don’t know if you’ll ever be as happy as you were before it happened.

With each bad thing that life throws at you, you think to yourself “at least this is as bad as it’s ever going to get.” But flash forward a few days, weeks, months, or years and life throws you an even bigger curveball.

While you may feel the urge to punch a wall or scream into the void, you have no choice but to make it through. It’s unfair and the world is a cruel place but there’s comfort in the fact that you’re not alone. It’s a part of life and we must learn to overcome the struggles we face over the years.


Everyone has their specialties when comforting friends. Some are listeners; they can empathize and react in a way that shows they care. Others are talkers; they can say exactly what the person needs to hear. It takes a special someone to be both.

But where someone struggles to find the right words, another has already said them. Where one struggles to understand what someone is going through, another has gone through it themselves.

Words of encouragement are not only for the struggling; they are also for the successful. Everyone reaches a point where they need to be humbled or they need to remember where they came from. Here is how you help them, and yourself: by looking back at those who have felt the same profound sadness or confusion that you have. These people have been put down and defeated but they are still here, even if only through their words, to tell the tale. They made it, and so will you.


So when you feel like life is too much and need some inspiration to go on, look to these 40 quotes of encouragement to get you through even the toughest days.


1. Make the most out of what you have.

“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”

40 Quotes From Men About Women, Women’s Rights & Feminism

Best Quotes About Feminism And Women's Rights From Men

Although International Women’s Day is officially behind us for this year, it’s ever-more important throughout Women’s History Month to remember the struggles women have faced through the years.

And, it’s important to also be sure that we acknowledge the self-proclaimed feminist men that support us women. These guys are the real MVP’s, y’all.

As a women, it’s almost expected that you’re a feminist (I mean, as a woman, we have to stand up for ourselves and fellow women, right?). But for men there can be a lot of negative stereotypes and misconceptions that surround that self-given title.


I mean, lets be honest, in our slightly messed up society, when a man proclaims he’s a feminist, he gets a lot of weird looks — or even made fun of (really?!). Toxic masculinity strikes again! Booooo!

Whether or not you believe men can actually be feminists, or if they should be labeled as allies of women’s rights, one thing still remains: Feminism is literally for everybody.

It’s important to acknowledge the role men play in feminism. Gender equality is for them too. Wouldn’t it be nice to finally just all be people? Men can be who they want to be, women can be who they want to be and we get actually get treated the same. Ah. What a world that would be.

While the amazing strides women have made over the last hundred years or so can never be made light of, it is still important to give credit to the men that have fought along side of us and have helped us get a little closer to equality.

The men who encourage the women in their lives to not settle for the injustices of living in a patriarchal society are a treasure to us, all of us.

Check out the top 40 best quotes about women, women’s rights and feminism from men. Get your feminism on, fellas!


1. Preach, sir! Preach!

“Men of quality support gender equality.”


2. It’s a simple rule, fellas.

“I think the golden rule for men should be: If you’re a man, don’t say anything to a woman on the street that you wouldn’t want a man saying to you in prison.” -Peter White


3. That time Ryan Gosling got real about misogyny in films.

“It’s misogynistic in nature to try and control a woman’s sexual presentation of self. I consider this an issue that is bigger than [one] film.” -Ryan

25 Quotes About Strength To Get You Through Even The Toughest Days

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

You are stronger than you think.

It’s hard to be strong when everything around us is falling apart. It’s harder still when we find out that we cannot really rely on anyone else. But this is exactly when strength is most needed.

Strength can be achieved from many things. Sometimes it’s the people around us, our loved ones, whose support foster that strength. Sometimes it’s in a certain kind of belief. For instance, religion could be a source of strength for some people. Sometimes it’s our very hardships that engender this quality in us that we had no idea we were capable of.

Other times we need a little inspiration to find the strength to carry on. After all, life isn’t all rainows and butterflies. Tough times only make you stronger!


On a day to day basis, words can awaken a sense of strength in us. So what better way to get that extra boost of strength than to find it in beautifully said, powerful quotes from people who have been through it all?

It is that time of the year when we all need to feel support and inner strength to wrap up old let downs and disappointments and let them go, once and for all.

That is why we have gathered 25 strength quotes and inspirational memes about being strong to help you find your inner strength and overcome whatever challenges life throws your way.


1. Strength grows when you don’t give up.

“Strength grows in the moments when you think you can’t go on but you keep going anyway.” — Unknown


2. Stay strong and keep smiling.

“Stay strong, make them wonder how you’re smiling.” — Unknown


3. You are stronger than you think.

4. You’ve got to get up and fight again.

5. Every struggle makes you stronger.

“Yes… she knows of pain, but she is strength, her heart knows no other way.” — A.R. Asher

40 Powerful Quotes To Give You Strength When You Need It Most

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

These strength quotes will help you get through the day.

Life has a funny way of testing us. We are constantly presented with obstacles that we must somehow find the strength to overcome.

These obstacles can range from moving on from a bad relationship to getting through a financial drought, but whatever the challenge at hand might be, you have a choice to make. You can either give up before you start, quit half way through, or see it through to the end and the decision is not always an easy one.

We never really know how strong we are until we are faced with hardship. We learn to let go of our fears and take steps towards our future.

Sometimes those steps are harder than we could have ever imagined, but with time we learn that all we can do is take one step at a time.


We become better people as a result of our struggles. Our accomplishments are that much greater because we realize how much strength and dedication it took to achieve them.

But thinking positively about obstacles is not always our first instinct. During tough times it is all too easy to feel overwhelmed and like there is no way to come out on top. You can’t help but to wish that life could just be easy all the time, but where’s the fun in that?


You can do this.

When you start to feel stuck and think that you have no more fight left in you, that is when you must fight the hardest. You must not allow yourself to give in. You are strong enough to survive any and everything that life throws at you. If you at any point forget this, just remember the words of some very wise individuals.

Refer back to these quotes about strength as inspiration to keep on keeping on. It’ll be worth it in the end.


1. Sometimes really loving someone means letting them go.

“Moving on isn’t about not loving someone anymore and forgetting them. It’s about having the strength to say I still love you, but you’re not worth this pain.” — Ritu Ghatourey


2. Focus on what you can control.

“One of the happiest moments in life is when you find the courage to let go of what you can’t change.” — Unknown


3. Choose yourself.

22 Tough-Love Quotes To Get You Through Nasty Friend Drama

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

No need for negativity in your life.

We’ve all had our fair share of drama. Maybe it was about a boy you liked or were dating, and things just were not going as planned. Or maybe you and your parents were just not seeing eye to eye about an issue. You’ve tried to take care of the drama yourself, but seem to have no luck doing so.

That’s what your friends are for! You know you can go to them to talk about anything and while you hope they’ll take your side, they’ll also tell you the truth. They’ll give you the advice you need to hear or tell you when you’re completely overreacting about a situation.


Maybe you don’t even want to think about your own drama or get advice, you just want to take your mind off of it. So, of course, you turn to your friends. There is no one better to keep you busy and keep you laughing.

They will help you with whatever you’re going through. 

But what about when it’s your friend who is creating the drama? Or when her life is just so drama filled that you don’t think you can take it anymore. You’ve gone to her for help but somehow end up being the one to give her advice… again.

Of course, you don’t mind being there for her like she’s been there for you. But lately, she hasn’t been there for you because her own life is just so dramatic that she believes it takes priority.


At that point, you may feel you need to find someone else to go to and separate yourselves for a while until you both figure your drama out.

Or worse, your friend is just completely creating drama among you and your other friends out of nothing. She goes after the same guy as you or another friend, or your ex, even though you told her that is not cool. You just don’t need this kind of girl drama in your life.

20 Strength Quotes To Motivate You When It Feels Impossible To Get Through The Day

Keep your chin up.

Have you ever had one of those days where it felt like a struggle just to get out of bed and put real clothes on? And no, I don’t mean because you’re still drunk from the night before.

I mean the kind of day that feels like it’s going to be crappy because you’ve been dealing with some difficult stuff that doesn’t seem like it’s getting better anytime soon.

It won’t be easy, but that’s what practice is for.

You don’t have to be a pro at something when you first start. If you were, you’d be flawless, and only Beyoncé is flawless… And maybe Rihanna, too.

But if you constantly practice having the strength to get through even the worst days, even if you slip every once in a while, you’ll notice a difference in your mood, yes, but also in your ability to handle the things life throws at …
