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.

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.


CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.

I Went To Disney For The First Time Since COVID-19 And It's Officially The Cleanest Place On Earth

I stopped focusing on the pandemic simply because, for the first time in months, I felt safe.

After a few months of self-quarantining, becoming suspicious of every cough, and blowing through masks like a medical school student, restrictions due to the pandemic are easing up a bit and businesses are warily reopening. While these public spaces may look the same on the outside, the way they function and operate is vastly different than a few months ago.

We've all been there. You see that super cute guy on your dating app of choice, his bio is funny, and then, the gut-wrenching feeling hits when you see their political views don't exactly line up with yours. He loves Trump, you can't stand him, or vice versa.

A lot of people will say you can get over politics, but I know from personal experience, as well as this survey, that politics play a huge role in whether a relationship will work or if we're even willing to swipe right on that profile.
