Reese Witherspoon just announced that Legally Blonde 3 is officially in the works! (What, like it's hard?) This is some quarantine news I can get behind. In honor of this announcement, here are 5 life lessons from everyone's favorite bubbly-blonde, Harvard Law heroine.

1. Dream Big

The sky really is the limit. As long as you're willing to put in the work, there is nothing you can't achieve.

"I don't need back-ups, I'm going to Harvard."

2. Be Yourself

You are enough. The only person's opinion that matters is your own.

“I’ll show you how valuable Elle Woods can be.”

3. Women Support Women

Elle Woods knew to surround herself with women who would lift her up, not drag her down.

"And last week I saw Cameron Diaz at Fred Segal, and I talked her out of buying this truly heinous angora sweater. Whoever said orange was the new pink, was seriously disturbed!"

4. Anything is Possible

Even when no one believed she could win the case, she used her vast beauty knowledge to prove her case with facts.

"Isn't it the first cardinal rule of perm maintenance that you are forbidden to wet your hair for at least 24 hours after getting a perm at the risk of deactivating the ammonium thioglycolate?"

5. Be Kind

Despite so many assuming she was a bubbly airhead, Elle always looked for the best in people.

“You must always have faith in people. And, most importantly, you must always have faith in yourself.”
