Don’t be afraid to feel as angry or as loving as you can, because when you feel nothing, it’s just death.

The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.

Alice Walker

If you inherently long for something, become it first. If you want gardens, become the gardener. If you want love, embody love. If you want mental stimulation, change the conversation. If you want peace, exude calmness. If you want to fill your world with artists, begin to paint. If you want to be valued, respect your own time. If you want to live ecstatically, find the ecstasy within yourself. This is how to draw it in, day by day, inch by inch.

Self-definition and self-determination is about the many varied decisions that we make to compose and journey toward ourselves… It’s OK if your personal definition is in a constant state of flux as you navigate the world.

The greatest healers are not those who fix us, but who show us the power we have to fix ourselves.
The greatest teachers are not those who give us wisdom, but share the pathway to wisdom we all can choose to take.
The greatest lovers are not those who love us for all we are worth, but rather shows us the power of the love within us that makes us priceless.

What do you think, vinas? Let’s help each other out: Please share some of your favorite uplifting quotes in the comments below and swipe through Hey! VINA to share these with your gal pals.


Taylor Alison Swift. The girl who sang us through our first day of high school, held our hands through our broken hearts, gave us confidence to wear our braces with pride, celebrated our 22nd birthdays with us in the biggest way, and wrote two songs about Kanye, for whichever mood we were feeling at the time. The goddess of music has birthed six albums of pure gold and she has left no stone unturned in the process. To guide you through the most monumental moments in your life, here is a Swift lyric for each one. Sing along with us, vinas!

1.) For the moment you realize your worth:

“Sophistication isn’t what you wear or who you know”


2.) For when you have a choice between taking allegiance to the girl at home, and the guy that didn’t:

“It would be a fine proposition, if I was a stupid girl. And yeah I might go with it if I hadn’t once been just like her”

3.) For the time you really got it wrong: 

“I’d go back in time and change it, but I can’t. So if the chain is on your door I understand”

4.) For when you’re really just over the whole “social interaction” thing:


“Guess I’ll just stumble on home to my cats…alone”

5.) For when you need a reminder that you’re still you, even if you don’t know who that is right now:

“I’d like to be my old self again but I’m still trying to find it”

6.) For the last douchebag that screwed you over:

“If he drops my name then I owe him nothin’, and if he spends my change then he had it comin'”


7.) For the time you really got it right: 

“Candle wax and polaroids on the hardwood floor, you and me from the night before”

8.) For when you finally find your old self again:

“When I was drowning that’s when I could finally breathe”

9.) For the moment that you realize the difference between damaged goods, and battle scars: 

“Heartbreak is the national anthem, we sing it proudly”

10.) For the NEXT douchebag that screws you over: 

“You look like my next mistake”

11.) For every moment of the last century: 

“We’re all bored, we’re all so tired of everything”

12.) For when you defeat your demons but they still look like angels: 

“Just because you’re clean don’t mean you don’t miss it”

13.) For the one you gave a second chance, and a third, and a fourth… 

“This is the last time I’m asking you this, put my name at the top of your list”

14.) For when you feel like your life will be complete as soon as you’re just a few years older: 

“Even though you want to, just try to never grow up”


15.) For every goodbye that’s been forced from your lips: 

“I can’t breathe without you, but I have to”

16.) For the past that made you happy, and the moment you let it go: 

“I could go back to every laugh, but I don’t wanna go there anymore, and I know all the steps up to your door, but I don’t wanna go there anymore”

17.) For when you wish you’d never grown up: 

“Wasn’t it easier in your lunchbox days, always a bigger bed to crawl into. Wasn’t it beautiful when you believed in everything, and everybody believed in you”

18.) For when you finally see the person you’ve always loved as the person you’re in love with:  

“You drive me crazy half the time, the other half I’m only trying to let you know that what I feel is true. And I’m only me when I’m with you”


19.) For when you’ve got nothing left to lose:

“I start a fight cause I need to feel somethin’, and you do what you want ’cause I’m not what you wanted”

20.) For the next time you’re underestimated: 

“Soon she’s gonna find stealing other people’s toys on the playground won’t make you many friends, she should keep in mind there is nothing I do better than revenge”
