    For Days That Aren’t So Magical


    In times of joy

    In times of pain

    In times of peace

    In times of rain,

    Every woman deserves her confidence.



    Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.

    — Oprah Winfrey

    I feel myself becoming the fearless person I have dreamt of being. Have I arrived? No. But I’m constantly evolving and challenging myself to be unafraid to make mistakes.

    — Janelle Monae

    I love who I am, and I encourage other people to love and embrace who they are. But it definitely wasn’t easy – it took me a while.

    — Serena Williams

    The problem with looking in the mirror is that you never know how you will feel about what you see. Sometimes, when my hormones are out of sync, I have no interest in the mirror, and if I do look I think everything is all wrong. Other times, I am quite pleased with what I see.

    — Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

    Seize that loveliness. It has always been yours.

    — Yrsa Daley-Ward


    I thrive on obstacles. If I’m told that it can’t be told, then I push harder.

    — Issa Rae

    The one way to get me to work my hardest was to doubt me.

    — Michelle Obama

    I discovered that joy is not the negation of pain, but rather acknowledging the presence of pain and feeling happiness in spite of it.

    — Lupita Nyong’o

    I kind of do think of myself as a superhero and just flying high, and doing these crazy flips.

    — Gabby Douglas

    My beauty ethos? Well, I’d love to tell you it’s something like ‘less is more,’ but honestly, it all starts with happiness. If only someone could bottle that up – when I’m happy, I’m at my most radiant and glowing. It does me better than any product ever could. And I stand by how cheesy and cliched that sounds.

    — Solange Knowles

    I’m realizing, you don’t need to change anything about yourself. This is who you are, and it’s okay. That’s daring.

    — Uzo Aduba

    I am not a quitter. I will fight until I drop. It is just a matter of having some faith in the fact that as long as you are able to draw breath in the universe, you have a chance.

    — Cicely Tyson

    There are lessons in everything. The bad, the good. Our job is to listen, and to continue to learn, so that maybe we get better at this. Maybe get better at life.

    — Laverne Cox

    You cannot live to please everyone else. You have to edify, educate and fulfill your own dreams and destiny.

    — Viola Davis

    Ignore the glass ceiling and do your work. If you’re focusing on the glass ceiling, focusing on what you don’t have, focusing on the limitations, then you will be limited.

    — Ava DuVernay

      My favorite quote from this piece is Oprah’s quote about being a queen. Funny thing is I heard something similar or paraphrased on a Lil’ Kim song lol. I’m thinking about posting inspirational quotes in my bedroom too and these could work!
