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 …

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 …

50 Self-Love Quotes To Remind You That The Single Life Isn’t So Bad

Why be someone’s better half when you can be your own whole?


Romantic comedies are often the films we turn to when we need a fun pick-me-up. They make us laugh, cry, and want to be in love.

These movies can also instill a pretty dangerous message in us. They relay the message that we become better when we’re in love, that it takes a love interest for us to become our best selves, and that we’ll never be truly happy unless we’re in love. But that’s not true!

Don’t get me wrong, I love romantic comedies. But it’s easy to get sick of the constant rhetoric that romantic love is the greatest thing in life and that there’s something missing in your life if you don’t have a partner. That couldn’t be farther from the truth!


There are plenty of positives to being single. Sure, it’s nice to have someone to …

65 Progressive Inspirational Quotes From Famous Celebrities

The best influential quotes from Hollywood’s hottest stars.

We all know these famous celebrities from Hollywood. We have their posters on our walls and their voices in our heads. We have been hearing their names and watching their television shows and movies for years. We tell ourselves that there was nothing like old Hollywood and imagine ourselves walking the red carpet in those fabulous dresses, and riding in those fancy cars, using those really long cigarette holders.

In reality, we know that being a celebrity isn’t all glamour. As hard as we fight for equal pay today, women in Hollywood back then had to fight to get even a fraction of what they deserved. In a time where many men believed women to be genetically inferior, these trailblazers took the world by storm, showing us that women can succeed in a male dominated business.
