Watch: The Women of Girls Trip Share Their Uplifting Mantras

In the heavily anticipated movie Girls Trip, one of the stars of the movie, Regina Hall, plays Ryan Pierce, a strong black woman who’s created a conception of her life as the one who “has it all.” We quickly learn that Ryan’s fantasy life is a fantasy even to her. Without spoiling anything (because you should definitely go see this movie), Hall’s character spends a majority of the movie teetering between being celebrated and facing her demons.


But one of the things Ryan does throughout the film is uplift herself with a mantra: “I am strong. I am powerful. I am beautiful.” When I sat down with the women of Girls Trip, I asked them about their personal mantras. Here’s what they use to get and stay lifted. Check out the video above.

Pretty. Witty. Girly. Worldly. One who likes to party, but comes home early. I got stories to tell. Prince (yes, that Prince) called me excellence. Achievement unlocked.
