7 Dr. Seuss Quotes To Live By

Live a positive life. Live a happy one, and be yourself while living it. Remember these 7 phrases and carry them with you.

1. “Teeth are always in style.”

There are so many styles and trends that come and go. Acid wash jeans, chokers, plaid skirts and the list goes on. Something that will NEVER go out of style is a smile. The simplicity of a smile can turn someone’s day from dreadful to delightful in seconds. The world will be a better place if people start smiling at each other more often, I’m confident in that. It is so much more attractive, and will improve your mood and confidence. Plus, it’s contagious! So spread those pearly whites because “you’re never fully dressed without a smile!”

2. “To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.”

We are all just mere individuals living in a world populated with 7.4 billion, give or take. That many people and sometimes we just need one. Sometimes we have those days where we feel like nobody is on our side and nobody cares to be. But in the crowd of 7.4 billion there is someone who understands, someone who is there for you, someone who wants to know you, and someone who already does and adores you. Give everybody a fair chance. Because everybody deserves one and nobody deserves to fall short of it. Appreciate those who love you and dissociate from the ones who don’t. Surround yourself only with the ones who make you feel gladness, because everybody deserves that.

3. “You’ll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut.”

Some of the best things in life are right in front of you. Things as simple but as exhilarating as a sunrise to start your day, a breathtaking sunset to end it and all the happiness in between. Something as small as a blossoming daisy or as big as a cloud shaped like an upside down elephant. Someone as young as a baby who waves to you on the line at the grocery store, or an elderly man who smiles at you because you look like somebody that he used to know. These things come easy, but some things you have to look around for. This doesn't just literally mean having your eyes closed. It’s about opening your eyes to new things. New experiences, new people, and new journeys. These things can make the best memories. So open your eyes and you won’t miss out on a thing.


4. “Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory.”

“You don’t know what you got till it’s gone.” These are the truthful lyrics that we enjoy singing along to for the rhythm, but when’s the last time you actually stopped to think what the lyrics are saying? In the moment, we tend to take things for granted. Sometimes we fail to look around, embrace the moment and be grateful for what we have. We get so caught up in the chaos of what’s next, where we’re going, and even what happened yesterday. What we should really be doing is living in the now. Because we only get that ‘now’ once. Some of the most valuable, precious moments we experience can slip right through our hands and not be appreciated to the fullest, until the moment is gone and becomes a recollection.

5. “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”

This can be a tough concept to remember. This is one of my weaknesses. I often find myself reminiscing on things that happened in the past and become devastated that I won’t have them back. But I fail to remember that more memories are coming my way. There is no room to be caught up in the fact that we won’t have our old memories back, the only thing we can do is be happy that they happened, and remember them in a cheerful light. We were so lucky for them to have happened to us, and fortunate for more to occur in the future. Instead of taking up space with melancholy for the times we won’t get back, we should make room and look forward to even better ones.

6. “Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.”

The next time you feel deflated or exhausted by the fact that you aren't good enough at something, good enough for someone, or good enough to do what you aspire to do, remember that you are the best at being you and nobody can be better at it. It’s as simple as that.

7. “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”

This one is simply my favorite. The ways you choose to express yourself and show the world who you are should reflect how you truly feel. You should not tip-toe around your beliefs, feelings, passions, or anything that makes you you. We were all given unique qualities and we are all different, so what is there to judge? Put your true self out there, because there’s no one else like it. So rock your favorite outfit, speak your mind, and listen to those songs you love that people label as “guilty pleasures” but shouldn’t be guilty- they are perfectly-innocent-ballads you love to sing as loud as you can. Spread your beliefs, share your feelings and be proud of your passions with the ones who matter. After all, that’s what life is for. So be yourself and only yourself, because the ones who judge aren't important enough, and the ones who are important enough won’t judge.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).

Just Because You're Asked To Be In A Wedding, Doesn't Always Mean You Should Say Yes

If you can't invest time, money, and YOURSELF, maybe say no to the offer for the bride's sake!
