Life According To Beyoncé
Life According To Beyoncé
By: Honey B. Baker
Let me start this off by saying I am not a member of the BeyHive but I do enjoy Beyoncé’s music and I respect her hustle, grind, and I stand in owe of her influence. Here are some of the life lessons we can all learn from Beyoncé’s music and her public persona.
7) Family Is Key:
Momma taught me good home training, my daddy taught me how to love my haters, my sister taught me I should speak my mind, my man made me feel so goddamn fine... (Flawless- BEYONCÉ)
Family is key, they are our support system. Be it your blood family or people who feel like family.
6) It’s Okay To Be Single:
All the single ladies, all the single ladies... (Single Lades- I AM)
I’ve got me, myself, and I... (Me, Myself, and I- Dangerously in Love)
Don’t you ever get to thinking you’re irreplaceable (Irreplaceable- B’ Day)
Middle fingers up, put them hands high, wave it in his face, tell ‘em boy bye... (Sorry- LEMONADE)
It is okay to be single and kick that no good dude to the curb. You deserve happiness not a headache. So tell that boy bye!
5) The Haters Are Going To Talk, Let Them:
I twirl on my haters... (Formation-LEMONADE)
Always stay gracious, get the best revenge is getting your paper... (Formation- LEMONADE)
Beyoncé has suffered attacks on her name, reputation, and people have gone as far to even make cruel and uncalled for comments about her precious daughter, Blue. However, Beyonce unlike so many celebrities who “clapback” at every rude comment or perceived slight Beyonce let’s the haters talk and she focuses on getting her money.
4) Be Your Sisters’ Ally:
Okay ladies let’s get in formation... (Formation-LEMONADE)
Who runs the world? Girls... (Run The World (Girls)- 4)
We are our sisters’ keeper and Beyoncé’s music is girl power anthem after girl power anthem. Our sister is our confidante not our competition.
3) You’ve Got Believe You’re The Bomb For Someone Else To Know It:
I’m so crown, bow down bitches. (Bow Down- BEYONCÉ)
She walked in the building like nobody’s business... (6 Inch- LEMONADE)
Every day when you walk outside you’ve got to know you’re the baddest chick walking Planet Earth. You are a Queen. This is your domain and you coming for the crown every day.
2) No Hustle, No Reward:
I see it, I want it, I grind till I own it (Formation- LEMONADE)
She grinds from Monday to Friday, works from Friday to Sunday (6 Inch- LEMONADE)
If you’re not willing to work for it, you’re not deserving of it. If you don’t hustle, you’ll never have it.
1) If You Fall Get Up and Act Like It Never Happened:
Imma keep running because a winner don’t quit on themselves (Freedom-LEMONADE)
In this life from time to time we will all fall flat on our faces. Get up, dust yourself off, and get right on moving like nothing ever happened.
