Law & Order: SVU is channeling Olivia Benson for some Monday motivation. The show has had Benson at its front and center since it began airing in 1999. The Twitter account from Law & Order: SVU is giving fans a gentle reminder.

“In case you needed a reminder from the Captain herself,” the Twitter account wrote. Attached is a gif of Olivia Benson telling a woman “You can do this.”

Olivia Benson is an inspiration to many, and not just in gif form. Mariska Hargitay’s portrayal of her over the years is perhaps one of the most consistently well-done performances on television. She’s broken records for how long she’s played Benson. And fans still want to see her do more with her. She even won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama series in 2006.

The ‘Law & Order: SVU’ Star Likes to Share Motivation of Her Own

The Law & Order Twitter account isn’t the only place in the SVU-Sphere where you can get a good dose of inspiration. Mariska Hargitay also likes to share her own words of wisdom. In a recent post, she gave fans some more motivation, and it’s quite profound.

In a recent Instagram post, she shared a quote that reads, “The self-work that you do in silence will echo throughout every part of your life.”

It encourages people to work on themselves. Even the little work you do will have a major impact.

The Show is on a Holiday Hiatus

Right now, Law & Order: SVU has taken after a lot of network shows and gone on Hiatus during the thanksgiving season. The episode on Thursday, November 18th will be the last for a couple of weeks. But don’t worry too much.

Law & Order: SVU and Law & Order: Organized Crime will both return on December 9th. But it’ll definitely be worth the wait because the shows are returning with a crossover event that’ll finally give fans plenty of Benson and Stabler moments.

It seems like the two have been in a will-they-wont-they situation since the dawn of time at this point. But recently, it looks like they could finally be getting closer to actually ending up in a relationship. It’s such a thrill for fans, who for a while, didn’t even think they’d see Elliot Stabler again.

Actor Chris Meloni left the show over a decade ago due to a contract dispute, but now that he’s back on Law & Order: Organized Crime, will they finally act on their affection for each other?

To find out, tune in to NBC when the two shows return on December 9th starting at 9/8 CT.
