If you're going through a hard time, or just need a little inspiration, read on for more of our favorite feel-good quotes from Jennifer Lopez!
5 Jennifer Lopez Quotes We Love
1. "You've gotta do things that make you happy. As women, we tend to give away a lot. We take care of a lot of people, and we can't forget to take care of ourselves," Lopez says. "If that means once a week you're going to go off without the kids or without anybody and just go shoe shopping — well, that's me, because I love shoes — or get a facial even if your sister thinks that's selfish, or join a Zumba class, or take a painting class, or whatever, you've just got to do it."
2. "I was always very comfortable with who I was," she told Marie Claire UK in 2010. "Confident. I’ve never looked at my body in a negative way."
3. "I remain an eternal optimist about love," Lopez admitted to On The Red Carpet about her recent divorce. "Sometimes it doesn't work, and that's sad. But I believe in love."
4."I know it’s hard for women to tap into that feeling of self-worth," she told Cosmopolitan UK in May 2011. "We need to get the message out that you are valued, you are a goddess and don’t forget that. It’s about stopping those thoughts of negativity and insecurity. I think changing that and really recognizing yourself triggers control of how you feel, so you’re able to go, ‘No, I’m awesome man, I’m amazing, there’s nobody like me.’ I think that’s the big secret to body confidence.”
5. "Sometimes we don't realize that we are compromising ourselves. To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself—if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me," Lopez told Vanity Fair. "I love myself enough to walk away from that now."
With an optimistic outlook like that, we know Lopez will be successful at whatever it is she does next. Best of luck to you, Jennifer!
