40 Inspiring Quotes About Good Books To Motivate You To Take Some Time For Yourself

Get out of your head for a while.

We spend our childhood getting lost in books. Turning page after page of adventure after adventure. Rainy days were the best days because we got to sit in our favorite chairs with a brand new book and just learn how to shape a world using only hints from the words we’ve read.

We spend our adulthood by avoiding reading altogether. How do we forget the joy we get from a good book? How do we forget feeling like we truly know someone, and they truly know us, just in the confines a few pages and our minds?

How do we lose that feeling of adrenaline and excitement that builds in the split second of turning a page?

We need to remind ourselves of the myriad of worlds that are hidden behind the closed doors of our bindings and stacked tightly in the …

50 Quotes On What It Feels Like To Be Overwhelmed (And How To Make It Stop)

Take a deep breath.

Everyone feels overwhelmed by life and stressed out at times — most stress is normal and  will pass. Instead of working yourself to exhaustion, know when to take a break. You can get a lot more done with a clear mind and a happy heart.

Only you know what is too much for you to handle so take care of yourself. Your tasks will still be there tomorrow, so if you want to spend today not caring about your responsibilities then let them go.

You shouldn’t feel guilty if you want to stay in bed, rest, and binge watch a television show. Don’t be afraid to answer yes to Netflix asking “are you still watching?” If you need time to reflect, then take a long walk and enjoy the scenery all around you. Maybe you have friends that you have been too busy to spend time with and …

25 Inspirational Quotes To Help You Persevere — Even When No One Has Your Back

“You have enemies? Good. That means you stood up for something in your life.” – Winston Churchill

When someone feels like they’re doing something meaningful — something they were meant to do — then they are truly living the dream. But living the dream isn’t always easy, and like it or not, people don’t always support your dreams.

When you live by your purpose, you do the little things to perfect it. You stay up until 4 a.m. making sure you’re fulfilling your purpose, you sacrifice time with friends and family to sharpen your skills or you think about your purpose every night before you go to bed and when you wake up.

Unfortunately, though, there are nay-sayers in the world that say you there’s no real purpose in life, and there are people who don’t have your back —​ maybe someone told you that you shouldn’t be here, that you can’t make it.

Don’t forget what it …

35 Best Marina Song Lyrics & Heartbreaking Quotes About Weakness In Love

Welcome to the life of Marina Diamandis – Formerly Marina and the Diamonds.

Are you a heartbreaker, prima donna girl, or Electra Heart? Maybe you’re all three and relate to every Marina Era, like me. Marina Diamandis, formerly known as Marina and the Diamonds, is a Welsh pop singer-songwriter that is one of the best vocalists and lyricists of our time.

Most people assume ‘the Diamonds’ in ‘Marina and the Diamonds’ refers to her being a band, however ‘the Diamonds’ mean her fans.

Marina began writing songs when she was 18 years old, but was too scared to sing them publicly. She became obsessed with becoming a singer, although she did not have a lot of musical experience. So, she taught herself how to play the piano and how to compose and produce music. Four years later, in 2007, she independently released her first EP “Mermaid vs. Sailor” on Myspace, …

12 Inspirational & Sassy Quotes That Prove Khloe Kardashian Won’t Hesitate To Tell You How She Really Feels

Khloe Kardashian tells it like it is.

I remember when Keeping Up With the Kardashians started, Khloe Kardashian was talking about taboo topics all the time. Over the seasons her focus definitely changed — from the brutally honest talking points to someone who barely talks about her personal life at all in recent episodes, she has come a long way and changed the way she lives her life.

Aside from the way she talked, Khloe Kardashian’s body and mindset has changed a ton since the start of the show, too. Kardashian has become a health inspiration to many, particularly in 2009, when she stated she started putting her health first. She began her transformation with a weight loss program called QuickTrim (she was the spokesperson), but her health journey has been an ongoing one — she regularly takes boxing classes, does various forms of cardio, eats healthier and has a personal trainer.

These days she claims her health and fitness is a …

15 Times Blair Waldorf From ‘Gossip Girl’ Taught Us To Stand Up For Ourselves

The queen of the Upper East Side never takes no for an answer.

The CW Network’s teen drama television show, Gossip Girl, curated some of the most quotable characters in TV teen drama history. The most iconic being Blair Waldorf — queen of the Upper East Side — who was played by Leighton Meester. Even without her copy-cat minions or handsome (and powerful) boyfriend Chuck Bass — played by Ed Westwick — by her side, Waldorf could handle any situation that came her way.

She was fearless, confident, and taught all young girls and women alike to be their own boss.

The TV series revolved around rich (and not so rich) teenagers living in New York City. They gossiped (duh), laughed, cried, and shopped. In the Upper East Side, nothing was off limits and there were no rules to making a claim to fame and fortune.

Blair Waldorf always knew what she wanted. She never took …

50 Self Love Quotes That Prove You Should Always Prioritize Yourself

You should be your most important person. Period.

Always put yourself first! It is highly important to always do what is best for you because you are the most important person in your life. Don’t let others dictate what you should be doing if their suggestions don’t serve you and your happiness.

Only you know what will bring you joy and happiness, so follow your heart.

It can be incredibly difficult to choose to value yourself more because we are often taught to care for others first. Although it is important to be there for others, you will not truly be able to help others until you help yourself. Caring about yourself is not selfish and you should not feel guilty because of it.

When you think about yourself first then you are on the path to genuinely loving yourself. By looking after yourself, you are being proactive in implementing …
