I’m not going to lie, this heat has got me down and I have had no clue what to write about. I have missed my normal deadline and have hated every draft I have started over the last two days.

To get my mind off my laziness, I scrolled through Instagram and saw a post about Jenna Dewan, bare-skinned and beautiful in a new interview for Women’s Health Magazine.

I mean…can you say #FineFriday? #WomanCrushEVERYday?

Bless her for bringing me inspiration and a smile to my face.

And these photos right now…OMG (swoons onto a lounge chair)

Admittedly, I crushed HARD on her former husband for the entirety of my teen years and …well; I’m not over him, if I’m honest.

But I have also grown to love her since “Step Up”, “Witches of East End” (which never should have been cancelled), following her profile online, and watching “World of Dance” (which makes me cry EVERY TIME…is that just me?).

When she and Channing Tatum announced their split a couple months ago, I kept getting tagged in memes about how “we got a chance, ladies!” because I was not shy about my one-sided love, but seeing two people who I really looked up to not stay together was a bummer.

Also, no. We don’t have a chance. Sorry not sorry.

Dewan shares some great insights in this article that I wanted to share with all of you and she shows a lot of grace in an emotionally tough situation, that I really wish I had just an ounce of in my own life.

Below are my top 3 favorite quotes from the article. You can read the full article here.

  1. “Women are so much stronger and more powerful, and living in our goddess energy, when we come together to lift each other up rather than tear each other down.”

  2. “I think there’s nothing sexier than becoming a mother. You give life. It’s everything. And you don’t change who you are inside just because you have a kid.”

  3. “It’s okay for a relationship to change into a new form that is actually better for both people involved, and I think that’s maybe what shocked everyone so much—that it can be a positive thing,”

Let us know on Instagram what your favorite quote is!
