Queen Colleen - Ten Times Colleen Hoover was Right About Love, and Life.

Colleen is Queen. In my last video, I called her Queen of the Feels - and I stand by it. She's awesome. And here's ten times she was right about love and life in her (amazing) books. She manages to nail it in just a few short words. Yes, Colleen truly is Queen of the Feels. Colleen writes YA/NA romance, and is a New York Times Top Ten Bestseller.

1. “Sometimes in life, we need a few bad days in order to keep the good ones in perspective.” 
 Colleen HooverMaybe Someday

2. “Love isn't always pretty. Sometimes you spend all your time hoping it'll eventually be something different. Something better. Then, before you know it, you're back to square one, and you lost your heart somewhere along the way.” 

3.  “We try so hard to hide everything we're really feeling from those who probably need to know our true feelings the most. People try to bottle up their emotions, as if it's somehow wrong to have natural reactions to life.” 

4. “Sometimes things happen in life that you didn’t plan for. All you can do is suck it up and start mapping out a new plan.”

5. “Choose your battles, but don't choose very many.” 

6. “I’m the only one that can be held accountable for the way my life turns out.” 

7. “Push your boundaries, that's what they're there for.” 

8. “I need to learn how to rely on myself to stay strong because I'm the only one I can trust.” 

9. “Never judge others. You both know good and well how unexpected events can change who a person is. Always keep that in mind. You never know what someone else is experiencing within their own life.”
― Colleen HooverSlammed

10.  And my personal all my time favourite.  “Does he treat you with respect at all times? That's the first question. The second question is, if he is the exact same person twenty years from now that he is today, would you still want to marry him? And finally, does he inspire to be a better person? You find someone you can answer yes to all three, then you've found a good man.” ― Colleen Hoover, Slammed
