Stop.

Take a look around and appreciate your current struggle because ten years from now, nothing will look the same. Over the next decade, you will experience wins, take some losses, and ultimately evolve into a woman you wouldn't recognize if you saw her today.

While on the journey to overcoming your circumstances, it may seem as though your circumstances have been overcoming you, but Lizzo had a word for those of us who are impatient when it comes to fulfilling our destiny: just wait on it.

From being homeless and facing one of the darkest times in her life to becoming the No. 1 artist in the country, Lizzo is no stranger to the struggle and recently, in an inspirational tweet we didn't know we needed, she reminded us that good things come to those who have patience. She wrote:

"2009 was the year my daddy died. 2009 was the year I lived in my car & cried myself to sleep on thanksgiving. 2019 is the year my album & song went #1. 2019 is the year I told my mama I can buy her a house."

In a previous interview with People, the Cuz I Love You singer revealed that her now-chart-topping hit "Truth Hurts" was once the reason she almost gave up music for good.

"The day I released 'Truth Hurts' was probably one of the darkest days I've had ever in my career. I remember thinking, 'If I quit music now, nobody would notice. This is my best song ever, and nobody cares. I was like, 'F— it, I'm done.' And a lot of people rallied; my producer, my publicist and my family, they were like, 'Just keep going because this is the darkest before the dawn.'"

Today, Lizzo is a testament to the fact that trouble don't last always; joy comes in the morning if you can find the strength to make it through the darkest parts of the night.

"Now the song that made me want to quit is the song that everyone's falling in love with me for, which is such a testament to journeys: Your darkest day turns into your brightest triumph."

The 31-year-old entertainer is living proof that just because your bag is delayed, it doesn't mean it's denied. You are the only true author of your narrative, and Lizzo had this potent reminder for anyone who feels stagnant in their story:

"Anything can happen in a decade. Tomorrow is the beginning of ur Anything."

Simone Biles is a decorated U.S. gymnast who captured the hearts of many with her ambitious, yet graceful moves. However, over the past year, fans got to witness another side of Simone after the gymnast began expressing the issues she's faced regarding her mental health. The Olympic gold medalist shocked everyone when she pulled out of some of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games, citing "twisties" as the reason. The twisties is a gymnastics term that is described as losing control of your body while spinning in the air.

The relationship we have and nurture with self lays the foundation for how we relate to and connect with others in our lives. Assessing the issues that discourage self-love from prospering are key in order to repair and reignite the freedom that comes when we finally believe the words "you are enough." I chatted with self-love advocate and lifestyle entrepreneur Shelah Marie – who you may remember from when her 2017 photo of doing yoga with boyfriend, rapper Ace Hood, went viral. Shelah's mission is to create a movement of total self-love and liberation for women of color through her platform Curvy, Curly, Conscious – a place where "self-help" meets "real talk" through virtual and offline events and retreats.

The first time I really learned about the five love languages was a year after a big heartbreak in my early twenties, and since then I've found myself exploring the love languages of each of my subsequent partners in an effort to be a better lover to them. At the click of a simple quiz, you'll know whether words of affirmation, acts of service, quality time, receiving gifts, or physical touch is the primary way you prefer to experience love.

At the start of each season, I browse the net to get an idea of the latest styles and trends to look out for when adding to my closet. When shopping, not only do I love items that are hot for the moment but mainly those that I can keep in rotation year after year. I especially look for styles that are both modern and classic, giving off an effortlessly timeless vibe.

Kissing is such a fascinating thing — to me. The reason why I say that is because, if the person you are exchanging a kiss with is someone who is good at it, it can be the sexiest, most special and most exhilarating thing ever. On the other hand, if they aren't so good — it's just gross. I don't know about y'all, but kissing is such a big deal in my world that I once broke up with someone, in part, because they totally sucked at doing it. It was like, no matter how hard I tried to explain to them what I needed in order to feel like we were in "kissing sync", they would continue to go off and do their own thing. All over my face (yuck).
