40 Music Festival Quotes To Get You Excited For Your Next Concert Lineup

Music festivals can serve so many purposes.

Music festivals are such a big deal for this generation. They’re really cool because it’s like a concert for all the bands your love at once, all in the same place. You don’t have to buy a million different concert tickets and run out of money trying to see all your favorite artists separately. You get to buy one ticket and see them all at once with all your friends, and oftentimes you get to see other bands that you wouldn’t normally pay to see — and who knows? You might end up loving them too.

These days many music festivals take place over multiple days, usually a weekend (if not two). Events like Firefly festival and Electric Daisy Carnival can last upwards of 3 days, while the biggest music festivals in the world such as the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and Ultra Music Festival take place two weekends in a row. All music festivals that last multiple days offer hundreds of different bands, singers and DJs throughout the days, and people make it a point to design different outfits to correspond with the themes for each of the days.

It’s funny how all these music festivals are kind of like a modern-day Woodstock (which actually is getting a re-boot itself, with the new Woodstock 2020 taking place in August 2020). The original Woodstock festival took place in 1969 and attracted more than 400,000 attendees. It was infamous for the theme of “peace and music”, and is the basis for most of these modern-day festivals, now hosting upwards of 420,000 people in a weekend.

Some festivals have themes to them as well, like country music festivals, rock festivals, electronic music festivals and so on. When it comes to buying tickets, you typically have to purchase them at least few months ahead of time (for the bigger festivals). The pricing can also vary based on the type of concert you’re attending. Larger festivals like Coachella, Firefly and Austin City Limits can charge over two and three hundred dollars per ticket.

If you’re a festival-goer and excited for the upcoming festival season, use these music festival quotes to get you pumped up for your next concert lineup. 

1. Cheers.

“Here’s to the nights that turned into mornings, and the friends that turned into family” — Unknown

2. Everyone wants to enjoy it.

“There’s …

10 Comforting Bible Verses To Post On Twitter During The COVID-19 Crisis

10 Comforting Bible Verses To Post On Twitter During The COVID-19 Crisis

Inspire someone on Twitter during this dark period in history.

One post on Twitter can go viral on social media. Words make a difference in someone’s life.

So, why not post a comforting Bible verse during today’s COVID-19 crisis?

Why post comforting Bible verses on Twitter?

We are always looking for inspiration and social media is a great way to communicate globally during times of social distancing.

The potential of death and the fear the world faces at the prospects of losing someone they love open the hearts of everyone.

People are searching desperately for a kind word, a thought that inspires or to reach for the faith and the great beyond in hopes of finding answers.

There are so many questions swirling around on social media when it comes to the COVID-19 crisis.

From what it looks like, feels like and what to do if you suspect that you have caught it.

But, one question that many people have in their hearts also involves a question about their faith — why would God allow something like this to happen.

A post on places like Twitter informs the world and gives them a reason to think deeply.

When people go on Twitter, they want to find poetry in life.

Social media fuels our motivation (or demotivates us) for living, working and loving others during times of hardship.

What makes Twitter so powerful is its ability to make a point in a concise way.

It’s because we generally want our inspiration and comfort to come in a few short words.

During this COVID-19 crisis, we have heard celebrities give us their point of view.

They help us to change our perspective and to see light in the darkness, too.

When people post on Twitter, they turn to poets and philosophers to retweet their words, but sometimes a hashtag may lead someone to you.

But what we don’t realize is some of the best one-liners can come directly from the ancient texts, such as a comforting Bible verse.

It may seem like the Bible is too old or out of date to apply to our lives in modern times, but I encourage you to give it a chance.

Regardless if you are a religious person or not, these stanzas provide comfort to us all.

Here 10 best Bible verses to use as comforting quotes as posts on Twitter.

1. Nothing is impossible.

50 Kindness Quotes For Kids To Use When They Are Quarantined At Home

Use being cooped up at home due to coronavirus as an opportunity to teach them kindness.

Nurturing kindness within children and making sure they learn to have empathy and respect for others — these important lessons start at home. As the parents, teachers and family of children, we should instill these qualities in our youth as much as possible to ensure that they spread love and kindness into the world. Especially now, during the coronavirus pandemic — when tensions and anxieties are high.

In today’s society, we are quick to judge others and we lack the respect of our elders, women and even children. When our youth are exposed to these behaviors, though, they begin to adapt to them and mimick them. So now, more than ever before as the majority of the world is at home in quarantine as we wait out the virus, we parents are who need to lead by example so the children in our lives can apply the positive attributes they are exposed to and eventually they will carry those into society.

To start teaching children what it means to be kind, take a look below at four routines you can incorporate into your kids’ daily schedules while they are spending time at home:

1. Be kind, smile and mind your manners.

It is a great idea to get children in the habit of smiling and expressing themselves in a positive and kind way. Remind them that having something nice to say to others are a good way to spread love around. You can remind them to smile and thank you for holding the door open for them, or to thank you for making lunch or snack.

2. Know when to say something nice, and when not to say anything at all.

Like the old saying, if you can’t say anything nice then don’t say anything at all. Sometimes holding your tongue is the best way to avoid conflict, so encourage your kids to get into the habit of saying nice things to each other, and when they are upset, backing away from the situation (rather than fighting).

3. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Remind your child that if they do something to someone that they do not like, it is not a good feeling — it might help them to try to imagine how that same situation would …

50 ‘Be Yourself’ Quotes That Teach You To Live Unapologetically

Living your life unapologetically helps you go through life more stress-free.

It’s difficult to find people who are original. They don’t have to sugar coat their life, to make it seem better than it is. Sure, fitting with the ‘in-crowd’ gets you into the social circle, but you could be hindering your identity unintentionally.

If you build relationships on fake smiles and giggles, then you don’t have a relationship at all. Trying to fit in is exhausting to your mind, body, and spirit. It will produce negative energy, when in fact just being yourself can creative positive ones.

Think of the ‘copy’ and ‘paste’ options on our computer screens. If we all want to adhere to the perfect person, according to social media and the news, then no one would ever tell us apart. Creating your own voice in a sea of people who want to replicate each other, creates a healthier version of yourself.

“Those who inspire others are people who are themselves. Why not try to be an inspiration to others?” – Annette Szproch

This comes to play when we accept who we are. We’re all made uniquely different, and embracing that is how we become a role model for others. With all the filters that Instagram offers, wouldn’t it be nice to show off to not have to choose? Confidence in ourselves is the best filters we can show off to the world because it not only builds us but others as well.

Being real with others allows us to create stronger bonds and better clarity of our own reflection. Do you ever look at yourself in the mirror, wondering who the other person staring back is? I’ve been there and I’ve realized how much harm comes from just not loving our own reflection. This could be a lack of self-image care. We don’t work on ourselves enough to value our strengths and recognize our weaknesses.

The more we accept our faults, the easier it will be to accept others. We’re all human so let’s start acting like it. We are not made out of aluminum and steel. Blood, emotions, and neurons are what make us all connected. If we truly want deeper connections with others, then we have to try to connect with ourselves first.

If you need the inspiration to begin your journey on finding and loving yourself, here are the best “be yoursef” quotes …
