Jessica Simpson shares words of wisdom with Instagram followers: 'The mind believes in what you tell it'
Jessica Simpson has offered her followers life advice by way of Instagram. On Friday, The Jessica Simpson Collection founder posted a glamorous-looking black and white shot, in which the star appears standing by some stairs.
In the photo, the mom-of-three poses with her hand on her hip. She sports a variety of necklaces, a plunging lace bra, a blazer and curve-hugging pants. Simpson also carries a bag decorated with a square mosaic.
In the caption she wrote, “the mind believes in what you tell it.”
The Open Book author advised her followers to “be gentle. Be brave. Be ready. Be resilient. Be humble. Be courageous. Be honest. Be patient. Be creative. Be grace. Be confidence. Be understanding. Be curious. Be aware. Be love. Be the conversations with God, your angels, and your heart. Mindset is a choice that we make everyday to revolutionize our character in its purest form.”
The post has over 55,000 likes.
“You are one of the very beautiful people in the whole universe inside and outside ... you always have the grace to handle the negativity. Such a beautiful inspiration,” commented a follower.
“Gosh, this pic reminds me a bit of Bella Thorne- you’re aging backwards!” wrote another.
“Amen, Jessica. Our attitude and how we treat others is EVERYTHING,” shared a third fan.
In Nov. 2022, Simpson shared a similar sentiment after her Pottery Barn Kids ad. The ad caught lots of attention, only not for her daughter Birdie's cute room but because fans expressed worry in the comments over Simpson’s speech and appearance.
“A little advice…live inside your dreams and move through them. Don’t give up on yourself because someone else did. Stay true to YOU. It has worked for me in this chaotic life thus far. Nothin’ and nobody will rob me of my joy. Ya might come close but it is mine to own. Yours should be too.”
In January 2020, Simpson went public with her addiction to pills and alcohol. She said she had been "killing myself" drinking, beginning early each morning, before getting sober in 2017 after blacking at at her family Halloween party. She detailed her struggles with substance use in her memoir, Open Book, that year, including being drunk during an infamous Ellen DeGeneres Show appearance.
Open Book is the inspiration for a new TV pilot that just wrapped starring John Stamos and Katelyn Tarver. Simpson shared a photo with the pair on set for the Amazon Freevee project, which is about a pop star (Tarver) and a fading singer-songwriter (Stamos). In an Instagram post, Simpson said the reimagining of her own life story was a "week of pure magic," adding, "Going backwards in time of self discovery to 25 yrs old has moments of intense emotional vulnerability. Hot dang I knew next to nothin' way back when, but I was ready for the discovery even inside my shyness and innocence."
Simpson serves as executive producer on the TV project while also juggling running her billion dollar fashion empire, Jessica Simpson Lifestyle Brand, which she recently reacquired.
