The darling star of Akeelah The Bee and Scream Queens favorite Keke Palmer posted an inspiring message on Instagram today, and it might be exactly what you need to keep your week positive, even if you feel buried in work and the world at large! The singer and actress posted a top-shelf selfie of herself in a shimmery silver crop top paired with a personal, poetic, and inspirational message to her fans encouraging them to keep pressing on despite obstacles.

She describes how she has been hustling “non-stop since the age of 9” and how it’s easy to “get wrapped up in your work that you forget to stop working and enjoy the flowers in which your seeds have grown.”

While her recent post is certainly a delight, it isn’t the first time Palmer has posted motivating messages on social media as she’s been known to drop some sweet gems from time to time.

Palmer wants her fans to remember to stop and enjoy the victories in their lives, both small and large.

The encouraging and outspoken words from Palmer feel right in line with her dedication to speaking truth to life. Just last December, Palmer spoke candidly about her sexuality and the need for widespread definitions more diverse than just gay, straight, or bi.

Whether she’s supporting her family or encouraging fans, Palmer is dedicated to keeping it real and keeping it positive!
