Lizzo Is The Powerful Feminist Artist You need to blast all summer

Everyone can appreciate a powerful girl boss using her platform to spread messages of self love and empowerment. Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, and Cardi B are just a few artists famous for their feminist-inspired bas b*tch anthems, but the one artist you may not blast (but definitely should) is Lizzo. Lizzo has been putting out music for years, but I just discovered her recently.

With beats you can definitely dance to and powerful lyrics about self love, it's hard not to fall in love with her. One of her most popular songs, "Truth Hurts" reminds me of that moment when you lose someone you really like and you put yourself down, but then remember who the eff you are! Additionally, her song "Coconut Oil" speaks so much truth with the lyrics, "I thought I needed to run and find somebody to love, but all I needed was some coconut oil." You don't need someone to love you to feel good about yourself. Slap some coconut oil on your hair, your skin, your food, and thrive by yourself!

Lizzo does not care about these f*ckboys because she knows her own damn worth.

It's a good song to blast after a breakup or if you're just feeling yourself. Her music is a mix of many genres, drawing influence from the places she grew up: Houston and Detroit. Now, Lizzo is based in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area and she has two full-length albums out as well as multiple singles/EPs. Check her out on any music listening platform.

Next time you're riding with the windows down and the sun shining on your face, make sure Lizzo is on your playlist so you can scream the empowering lyrics as you drive just a bit too fast down the freeway.

What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.

It used to be something I'd use if I happened to be at a restaurant that ran out of soap in their bathroom, but now it's almost more essential to have on-hand at all times than my cell phone.

The decision-makers of Yale's law students have invested in therapy dog sessions in order to reduce stress. In 2011, Yale Law Library had a sign-out sheet for their certified library dog. The 30-minute sessions were equipped with unconditional, stress-busting puppy love.

Law Librarian Blair Kauffman stated that the free, three-day pilot pet therapy program at Yale Law Library launched as "a positive addition to current services offered by the library."

I have been working at Dunkin' Donuts for over two years, and during this time, I have progressed from regular crew member to crew coach, and finally, to shift leader. Among my great skills involving the job is my ability to deal with stressful situations, including awful customers. My boss has continuously pointed out the fact that I am able to handle these people with grace and kindness. She herself often finds that she gets snippy with rude customers, but somehow I am able to keep a straight face through these tough times.

Let's be real here — sometimes essential oils and acknowledging all five senses (touch, see, hear, smell, taste) just don't cut it when you need to cope. It's those days when you have so much rage that you don't even know what to do with yourself, or those days when you physically cannot stop crying because of the most suffocating sadness, or all those other days when you are craving healthy coping mechanisms that actually work.

But before I let you in, we need to continue being real. I hope you are comforted with the knowledge that before I uncovered (or, even wanted to uncover) healthy mechanisms, I also went through my drought of horrible coping mechanisms. I have, and sometimes continue, to fall short of genuinely trying to help myself. It takes a lot of courage, and energy, to genuinely try and help yourself.
