Happy New Year!  Kimmiecup’s Catalog took a much needed break but now I am back and ready for action!  During my hiatus I read some AMAZING books (42 to be exact) and I can’t wait to share the good, bad and ugly books that I came across in 2018.

But to get us back into the groove of the new year I want to showcase some of my favorite inspirational quotes that help keep me going!  Let’s be real, who doesn’t love a great inspirational quote to get them through the day? A good motivation can literally be the pick me up you need to be the next Oprah, Shonda Rhimes, or Will Smith right?  Okay, maybe not that famous but you get the point.  As I read more, I definitely find hidden gems in books that inspire me to at least want to become a better me and you can’t beat that.  Here are a few that mean the world to me:



-The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go. -Dr. Seuss

-I am not lucky. You know what I am? I am smart, I am talented. I take advantage of the opportunities that come my way. And I work really, really hard. Don’t call me lucky. Call me a Bad*** – Year of Yes

Y’all don’t make me say it, okay I will…. SHONDA YOU ARE MY GIRL!

-You will never be able to escape from your heart. So it is better to listen to what it has to say. – The Alchemist

-I can choose to either be a victim of the world or an adventurer in search of treasure.  Its all a question of how I view my life. – The Alchemist

-A #GIRLBOSS is in charge of her life. She gets what she wants because she works for it.    –  #GirlBoss

-Knowing when to speak up and when to shut up will get you very far not only in business, but in life. – #GirlBoss

-People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. – Maya Angelou

-When today fails to offer the justification for hope, tomorrow becomes the only grail worth pursuing. – Death of a Salesman

-Your passion is that one thing you can’t stop thinking about, that thing you wake up thinking about this morning, go to sleep thinking about at night, that thing that you would do for free- Black Privilege

-If you are brave enough to say goodbye.  Life will reward you with a new hello- The Alchemist

-Pessimism has never won any battles- Black Privilege

-Happiness comes from living as you need to, as you want to.  As your inner voice tells you to.  Happiness comes from being who you actually are instead of who you think you are supposed to be.  – Year of Yes

-Live your truth.  Honesty is always the best policy.  Manners will take you where money won’t. – Black Privilege

-I can do all things through Christ that gives me Strength- The Bible

Hope this brightens your day, but more importantly I hope it encourages you to go kick butt!


Happy reading!
