5 reasons to say “Hell Yeah!” this week

Congrats ladies and gents, you’ve survived the workweek and it’s only a matter of time before you can kick back with an ice cold beverage. But before you skedaddle today, take a moment to check out some of the good things that happened this week—because we could really use some positive news.

1. This catfishing story that somehow ended in love

“Online dating is a treacherous undertaking. Not only do dating profiles tell you absolutely zero about your actual chemistry with a person, but the phenomenon of “catfishing” (or using a fake online persona to lure someone into a relationship) makes the whole endeavor especially dicey. Which may be why a recent story in The Atlantic about a catfishing scheme ending in romance sounds so totally bonkers.”


2. Demi Lovato’s side-by-side selfies showing her powerful eating disorder recovery

“Lovato recently shared side-by-side selfies to illustrate just how far she’s come in her post-eating disorder recovery period. One of her fans juxtaposed the before-and-after selfies, and Demi appreciated the message so much that she shared the image to Instagram story, adding the caption ‘Recovery is possible.'”


3. Rihanna sharing her experience with a ‘fluctuating body type’

“Rihanna recently got candid about her own body changes, and her words are incredible comforting to anyone who also feels like their body type changes from week to week.”


4. Selena Gomez’s powerful message to her little sister

“Having a big sister comes with a lot of perks. Although it’s easy to forget to appreciate what they do for us, anyone who has an older sister knows they’ve helped pave the way to where you are now. We look up to them, learn from them, figure out how to break the rules (thanks to them) and copy every move they make — like singing Disney songs into a hair comb. And even if you fight, odds are high that you still truly love each other. So when Selena Gomez shared a message to her precious 4-year-old sister on Instagram, we couldn’t help but ‘awwwww’ about it.”


5. Amy Schumer brushing off Twitter trolls

“Schumer recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to discuss her upcoming Broadway debut in Steve Martin’s  new play, Meteor Shower. During the interview, the conversation turned to body image, and Schumer was her usual, flippant self about the matter.”


Happy Friday!
