With the passing of Tina Turner, one of music’s greatest singers of all time, we thought it was only appropriate to honor her legacy by sharing five of her greatest life lessons.
It wasn’t without great life struggle that many words of wisdom came from Tina Turner, the Queen of Rock n Roll. With resilience, positive thinking, and individuality, you can create a life of empowerment.
1 – “Sometimes you’ve got to let everything go – purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything… whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you’ll find that when you’re free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.”
This quote emphasizes the importance of letting go of anything that causes us unhappiness. By doing so, we make room for joy and creativity to emerge, allowing us to live more fulfilling lives.
2 – “My greatest beauty secret is being happy with myself. I don’t use special creams or treatments – I’ll use a little bit of everything. It’s a mistake to think you are what you put on yourself. I believe that a lot of how you look is to do with how you feel about yourself and your life.”
Tina reminds us that happiness begins from within, not from material possessions or external factors. You are your biggest critic, but what would life feel like if you were your biggest fan?
3 – “You must love and care for yourself, because that’s when the best comes out.”
This quote speaks to her remarkable resilience. She encourages us to embrace life’s difficulties without regret, as they shape who we are. We can’t change the past, but we can learn for the future.
4 – “People think my life has been tough, but I think has been a wonderful journey. The older you get, the more you realize it’s not what happens, but how you deal with it.”
Tina’s tenacity shines through in this quote. Seize opportunities, even when it feels challenging or daunting. We can create our own opportunities for joy and happiness by having the courage to take the first step.
5 – “At every moment, we always have a choice, even if it feels like we don’t. Sometimes, that choice may simply be to think a more positive thought.”
Positive thinking helps us move our anxiety towards joy. By adopting a positive mindset, we can cope with life’s challenges more effectively and create more joy and happiness in our lives.
