8 Reasons To Live A Little More Like Donna From 'Mamma Mia 2'

Sometimes you just got to let your hair down and have fun!

1. She fell in love three times, and didn't let it take a toll on her life. She kept moving forward.

Most of us fall in love and after we just mope around, she just got up and kept going on with her life and even when she was pregnant, she did it all alone and didn't tell anyone about it and look how it all turned out for her. She is strong and independent.

2. Not letting others opinions get to her.

Donna just packed up her things and went to a whole new world to start fresh and yet everyone told her to leave and go back home, she wanted to stay and start a new life.

3. Be courageous and open-minded.

Donna was always up to new adventures, she just went on Bill's boat and asked him to take her, she wanted to sing so she just asked the owner, she found a little shack and decided to stay in it, she asks for help when she needs it; like how she asked Sam for help with the horse even though she didn't know him. Donna isn't afraid and she just goes out and lives life and has fun and I think that's what we need to do. Stop overthinking and putting assumptions into our heads and time to put down the technology and just be outside. Donna would've done that.

4. It's OK to be alone.

Sometimes things don't work out, sometimes we get our heart broken, and sometimes we just want to pack up our stuff and leave for good. Remember it is OK to be alone. Donna knew she was pregnant, but she wasn't afraid to be alone. She picked her head up and kept going on with her life. Being alone isn't the worst thing, remember things will happen when the time is right. So love yourself and remember it is OK to be alone.

5. You don't need makeup or crazy tight clothes to be beautiful.

Donna's fashion style in this movie is absolutely beautiful. But it also showcases her character perfectly. She is an outgoing, freeing, adventurous girl. She let her hair be natural and curly, never really wore makeup, and wore clothes that made her feel beautiful. Such as long flowy skirts with t-shirts, overalls, sandals, bell bottoms, her style was simple but made her stick out. We don't need to try so hard, we should all try to be ourselves and let our natural beauty show.

6. You can start something from nothing. Follow your dreams.

A lot of us have these huge aspirations and dreams, but we are too afraid to start them because we think we will fail. Donna went to Greece hoping to find something. She found this place and wanted to turn it into a hotel and yes she knew it would be a lot of work, but she wanted to do it. So that's what she did. Sometimes all we have to do is just go for it and if we put hard work into it, our dreams will become a reality. Donna would've told us to go for our dreams.

7. Travel the world.

Most of us spend our lives trapped in the same location, whether that be the small town we grew up, the college we attended, or the few places we traveled to. It is time for us to step out of our comfort zones and see the world. Traveling doesn't have to be expensive. Just get out there and see what the world has to offer. Just wait and see what life throws you, maybe your calling will be out there when you travel somewhere new and crazy. Just like Donna.

8. Don't be so serious and just have fun!

Yes, I know life can be stressful and sometimes we just need to be little grumpy, serious beings. But life is too short to mope around and not have fun. We are in a beautiful world, with beautiful people and it is time to just smile and have fun! Donna had a lot thrown her way, but she always kept a smile on her face and lived the life she wanted to live and I think that's how we all need to be.

Epic Activewear Deals Every Leggings-Lover Needs To Know About From Nordstrom's Biggest Sale

Wearing my pleather Alo leggings till someone physically removes them from my body.

I'll be the first to admit I'm not an athletic person, at all. Since junior high school, I've been happily cheering my friends on at their football games and soccer matches from the sidelines as long as I could go home to my yoga mat and spend Sunday mornings at Pilates with my mom's friends.

Weekends are often spent in my casual wear, from the second I throw them on for morning meditation through running errands and evening walks. No, I won't be running a marathon or joining my friend's volleyball league anytime soon.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

I've been an athlete my entire life. I love movement and I've been jumping, kicking, swimming, dancing, throwing, you name it since I was in diapers. I'm also pretty competitive and probably went through a few sore loser phases. What can I say? I like to win, and losing can sometimes feel like I've failed. Especially, when your competitor is your best friend or someone that you worked all year long to defeat.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.
