10 Life Lessons Beyoncé Has Taught Us

Women have struggled in many ways through life. We have fought for a voice, to have rights, and to be taken seriously. We have come a long way, but we still have a long way to go. We get caught up in this world, and at times we feel confused, scared, and like we are always being scrutinized on how we do things and how we live our lives.

It is important to take a moment and remember how badass and strong women truly are. Take note how much we go through and how much we've accomplished in the past to create a better society overall for our future generations and for ourselves.

I hope you remember how strong, beautiful, smart, and badass you are. Take a moment to remember what the most important things in life are to you as you move forward. Beyoncé is here to help remind you when you forget.

1. Laugh often

Life gets too crazy, serious, and emotional. Remember to laugh and laugh often. Laughter is such a pure cure for a hard day.

2. Forgive and move forward

There is no one who is worth wasting your time. The longer you dwell on those who have wronged you, the longer it will take for you to move forward and better your life. So, be quick to forgive, move forward, and succeed. Trust me, you will feel so much better. Your heart will heal faster and your soul will feel lighter.

3. Independence

Don't expect others to always be there to give you what you want. Independence is very important. It helps you realize who you truly are and how far you can get independently. Later on, you will be glad you worked hard and did things on your own, proving to yourself that you are capable of many things.

4. Be true to yourself

You are your own personal cheerleader. Always be sure to remind yourself how valuable and outstanding you are. Don't let others try to tell you who you are and how to live your life. At the end of the day, the most important thing is that you are happy with who and where you are in your life.

5. Not all men are bad, but you also don't need your whole world to revolve around a man

Not all men are horrible, but not one man is worth your whole world to revolve around him. Do not forget about yourself, and acknowledge what you want in a relationship as well. Never let anyone tell you that your standards are too high.

6. Treat yourself

Don't forget to indulge and pamper yourself. You work hard as a independent women, mother, wife, sister, and friend. You deserve to be pampered every once in a while.

7. You are going to make mistakes, just shake it off

Everyone makes mistakes, it's how you handle them that makes the difference. Mistakes are just another way to gain a second chance. So, just shake it off and go back to the drawing board. You got this.

8. Confidence

Confidence is key. It's important to be confident in yourself. Don't be afraid to take new chances and put yourself out there. It is scary at times, but it could get your foot in the door in many situations.

9. Don't forget about the little things in life that matter

Spend time with friends and family. Eat that amazing burger and think about it after. Don't forget to take a moment and realized how blessed you are in life.

10. Judgement is everywhere

Everyone is quick to judge, and everyone will judge the way you live your life. At the end of the day, though, it's your life. What matters most is that you are content and happy with how you are living your life.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
