30 Inspiring Jennifer Lopez Quotes To Inspire You To Work HARD For The Life You Dream Of

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

She’s still Jenny from the block!

The entertainment superstar Jennifer Lopez, who is lovingly referred to as J-Lo, has had quite the career. It feels like yesterday she was starring in her breakout role as Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla-Perez in the biopic film Selena, and that film is 21 years old this year. 

Time really flies when you’re enjoying everything J-Lo.

Many of us have grown up with Jennifer Lopez and seen her transformation over her impressive career in the spotlight. She’s conquered film, music, television and even perfume. To this day, Glow by J-Lo is the greatest perfume I’ve ever owned.

This lady is one of the hardest-working women in the entertainment industry. That incredible work ethic is what has made Jennifer Lopez the successful entertainer, business woman and humanitarian that she is today.

Her journey to stardom is just as beloved by her fans as her movies and TV shows.

Jennifer — or ‘Jenny from the block’ — grew up in the Bronx and worked her way up from being a back-up dancer for Janet Jackson and Fly Girl on In Living Color to an accomplished actress and singer. Now, she’s a veteran, making major moves as a producer on projects like El Cantante, The Boy Next Door, World of Dance and Shades of Blue.

Just thinking about her busy schedule might exhaust us regular humans, but J-Lo is on a whole other level.

Her drive inspires us to reach for the stars and be the best version of ourselves. Even with all her success, she still makes time to give back.

When Hurricane Maria severely damaged much of Puerto Rico last year, she was on the forefront of raising money for recovery relief. Jennifer and her ex-husband Marc Anthony created the artist alliance Somos una Voz to help the devastated island by providing things like medical supplies, food, water, shelter and power. 

In addition to being an accomplished businesswoman and humanitarian, she is also a trendsetter and beauty icon who helped redefine Hollywood beauty standards. While many people reference Kim Kardashian for making a “curvacious” booty popular, it was Jennifer who did it first. 

She’s the original booty queen. 

Oh, and did I mention she’s also ageless? This week Jennifer shared an Instagram post at the gym, and it’s kind of hard to believe that she is going to be one year away from 50!…

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

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

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

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 life isn’t to live it for other people, and neither is yours. Some people are offended by that.

The truth is it’s impossible to please everybody.  The most you can do is make yourself happy. You have to take ownership of your own life.  Do you. Sure, it’s intimidating, especially when you’re taught to always do things for other people, but it’s worth it.

So if you need of a little inspiration about being a boss person, check out these quotes for a little pick-me-up.


1. Being a boss means you’re ready for new adventures.

“If you’re too comfortable, it’s time to move on. Terrified of what’s next? You’re on the right track.” — Susan Fales Hill


2. It means more than one role.

“Sometimes you gotta be a beauty and a beast.” — Nicki Minaj


3. Remember that being a boss means figuring out success.

“Know that you can start late, look different, be uncertain and still succeed.” — Unknown


4. Bosses do everything at once.

“You can find me somewhere in between inspiring others, working on myself, dodging negativity, and slaying my goals.” — Unknown


5. You can do anything you set your mind

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.

“Sometimes, caring for yourself means letting go and

Her album Invasion of Privacy shot her even further into fame. With an engagement to rapper Offset, a member of Migos, and a baby on the way, Cardi’s career isn’t going to stop anytime soon.
