10 Quotes To Write On Your Mirror For A Confidence Boost

9. "I will not let anyone scare me out of my full potential." - Nicki Minaj


I, like so many others, enjoy a good inspirational quote to boost my mood! It can take me from a negative mood to a happy one, if only for just a moment. So I wanted to share ten of my favorite confidence-boosting quotes with you!

If you are interested in writing these quotes on your mirror, I would suggest not including the speakers' names. I like to believe that I am the speaker encouraging myself.

1. "I would rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I am not." - Kurt Cobain

This is personally my favorite quote. I have a canvas made with the quote and it was in my honor's graduation ceremony slideshow.

Credit for this quote is given to the deceased frontman of Nirvana, Cobain, but sources suspect the phrase originated in the 1950s. I do not care who said it or when it was said; I like what it stands for.

I like to think Cobain is telling me to be my authentic self. If I am authentic to me, I will find people who love me. I do not need to act like someone else or pretend to like a certain type of music or show to get someone to like me.

2. "Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping stone to greatness." - Oprah Winfrey

Of course, I needed to include a quote from one of the most inspirational women in Hollywood. I am not alone in my fear of failure and Oprah encourages me to not think of failure negatively. I should think of negative events as stepping stones to being the best version of myself.

3. "Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are." - Marilyn Monroe

This is another quote about being true to you! These are personally my favorite types of quotes!

4. "Comparison is the death of joy, and the only person you need to be better than is the girl you were yesterday." - Rachel Hollis


Hollis is the author of "Girl, Wash Your Face" and "Girl, Stop Apologizing" (which I am read she summer and highly recommend). She believes in empowering women and does an amazing job of inspiring me to be my best!

5. "Never follow anyone else's path. Unless you're in the woods and you're lost and you see a path, then by all means follow that path." - Ellen DeGeneres

Ellen is one of the funniest and most down-to-Earth people in Hollywood. I love her sense of humor and get inspired by her positivity!

6. "The best way to guarantee a loss is to quit." - Morgan Freeman

What Freeman is saying is to NEVER give up; even if you believe you are incapable of handling something!

7. "If you are humble and hardworking, opportunities will arise for you." - Rachael Ray

Please be like Rachael and be kind to others. Work hard and you will see results!

8. “I cannot continue to live as half of myself simply because it's hard for others to handle all of me." - Rachel Hollis


Another quote from Hollis. I could not exclude it! She is so inspiring!

9. "I will not let anyone scare me out of my full potential." - Nicki Minaj

I truly believe, as does Hollis and Minaj, that humans would all have so much potential if we did not let little things bother us. If we cared less about someone's opinion of us, we could go so far!

10. "It's a beautiful day. Don't let it get away." - U2

"Beautiful Day" by U2 is one of my absolute favorite songs. While this quote is not necessarily about confidence, I believe that this quote is reminding all of those people with mental health issues to not let a day be ruined by their illness. I know I need this reminder sometimes.

Whether you write these quotes on the mirror or jot them in a notebook, it is so helpful to see positive affirmations to yourself everywhere you go! It does not even have to be these quotes. Choose any that make you feel positive, happy, and confident and make it your phone's wallpaper or paint a canvas of to lie over your bed!

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.

Kamala Harris Is The Biggest Hypocrite Of The #MeToo Movement

A vote for Joe Biden is a vote for Kamala Harris — and no one wants a hypocrite for a vice president.

Joe Biden just chose Kamala Harris to be his running mate against Donald Trump and Mike Pence in 2020. Now, for many reasons, this is hilarious as I think Biden just solidified his fate and gave the election to President Trump, but that's for another time.

Maybe it was the quarantine months that sent you on a quest to finally find a workout routine that works for you, or maybe it was the lack of routine in the world that inspired you to change your habits or -for some- keep them and make an effort to maintain your health. If gyms were not already evolving with the new needs of the 21st-century gymgoer, they are undoubtedly evolving now with the lifestyle mindset that Covid-19 has left many of us with — a desire for a plan for a positive change seeing that tomorrow is not guaranteed.

The experience that an individual gets out of going to the gym should feel worth their time, energy, and should meet their specific fitness journey goals. If you do not already have a reason to go to the gym, here are ten genius effective implementations that will inspire even the couch-iest potato.

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.

With no sign of the pandemic going anywhere, brides and grooms who planned to be married in 2020 are forced to opt for plan B — if not plan C or D. While some are downsizing their in-person weddings to meet coronavirus guidelines and state restrictions, others are choosing to cancel theirs until further notice and some, well, they're embracing the virtual "I do."

A few weekends ago, I had the pleasure of attending a Zoom wedding for my friend and fellow editor and writer, Kristin Magaldi, and the short-but-sweet ceremony left me in happy tears (surprise surprise). In order to get the scoop on what exactly went into planning a virtual wedding, I asked Kristin to share her best tips so other couples know exactly how to have a Zoom wedding in case they're looking to lean into the video chat vows, too.

Luxury Fashion Buys Your Bank Account Couldn’t Justify Till This Year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

In case you needed another reason to get the Prada sunnies you've been eyeing all year.

Since I can remember first flipping through my older cousin's fashion magazines as an 8-year-old, I've always had several luxury items on my wish list of items I knew I'd never have, but loved to fantasize about.

As I grew into financial independence later in life, the list grew longer, but the ways in which I could toy with my grocery or travel budget for a month to make room for something I really wanted made the items on it more attainable. Even then, I will (virtually) visit an item online several times in the span of a year to test if I still like it months after eyeing it, and to see if by any chance it may have gone on sale.

5 Characters From Your Childhood That Combated The Mental Health Stigma

We deserve to see people like us on the big screen just as much as you do.

Perks of Being a Wallflower

Growing up with a neurodevelopment disorder and mental illness, it's easy to feel isolated from the rest of the world. It is not common to look around and see someone that experiences situations similar to the ones you endure. Even if you do come across a person that is also perceived to be "different" in the eyes of society, the negative connotations instilled in everyday life are quick to silence your voice and knock you down before you have a chance to realize that who you are is more than okay--it's normal. This is a big reason why anything that brings understanding and shines a light on what people with neurodevelopment disorders and mental illness go through on a regular basis comes around a sense of relief and happiness fills the body.

In light of this, I went on a hunt to find characters in television and cinema that accurately portray the complexities of developmental disorders and mental health.

First and foremost, shame on you for encouraging the patriarchy and sexism as you police a female's clothing choices. You cannot control our bodies, but what you can advocate for is public health and safety. This includes demoralizing rape, slut-shaming, and protecting society from illness.
