Because sometimes all we need are more badass quotes to motivate the sh*t out of us!

You find yourself absorbed in positive affirmations on FB and Instagram and Pinterest and all other social media sites because, really, that’s where all your answers lie, right? You drown in a sea of rainbows and unicorns, magic, and butterflies. Fluff and flowers.

Is it helping though? I’m guilty of scrolling feeds looking for inspirational messages in a post.

Sometimes the best badass quote shows up at just the right moment and I find myself screaming HELL YA at the monitor. Do you do that too? Or maybe that’s just me.

Anyway, in my tumultuous years, I’ve come up with a few quotes about being a badass, myself! In this post, I’m going to share them with you and hope you have your HELL YA moments too!!

You know sometimes, fluffy doesn’t quite cut it. We need something hard-hitting and powerful to shake us up and wake us up. Tough love if you will. I hope these will serve as your daily inspirational quotes for when times are tough and you are down.

  • Spread more love and less hate please. The more hate you feel, the more hate will show up and stay in your life
  • Life has an expiration date. The problem with that is, we don’t know when it is. Smarten up and go live.
  • Don’t cry about yesterday. It’s over. Do something today to make your tomorrow better. Just stop crying over yesterday’s crap.
  • You control your life. Not your family, your partner or anyone else. If they do, it’s because you are letting them.
  • The longer you talk about your problems, the longer they will stay. Do yourself a favour and start talking about solutions.
  • I got this far because my desire for a better life was stronger than my desire to stay in misery.
  • It doesn’t matter how many times you got pushed down, get up!! Keep getting up. Don’t stay down. Show them how strong you are.
  • Yesterday sucked. I get it. You were hard done by. We all were. Forgive, forget and move on. Life is too damn short.

  1. Saving this so I can refer back to it as often as I need too! Thanks Iva, you are amazing! Love all your life’s lessons. One day I will be a badass just like you!

    1. Hey thanx Monette. These are some of the quotes I used to repeat to myself all the time to get me out of my funk. They work. And you ARE badass just like me!! love you…xoxo

  2. The language is “tough” but the
    thought is “tough love” and the
    lesson is “make a plan” take action
    and go after your dream.
    It takes courage. The best people I
    know or have known – were “overcomers” and people who grew
    up and faced their challenges.
