February 24, 2016

For most of us, it is in our nature to crave others attention, love, and approval. However, the most important thing that we seem to forget is how to love ourselves. It may sound selfish, or even a bit weird- but it is my belief that it is essential in getting us further in this crazy thing we call life. It’s key to learn how to take a step back, and reevaluate your choices. Are you making the best possible…

Handling Rejection Like The Badass You Are

February 16, 2016

Rejection: The dismissing or refusing of a proposal or idea, etc. We’ve all experienced it. Whether you’ve gotten rejected by that guy you’ve been staring at in class all semester, by the school of your dreams, or from that job where you thought you nailed the interview-it’s bound to happen again and again throughout our lives. But what I believe matters most in the face of rejections is how we choose to handle it. Of course it’s normal to get…

Shout Out To My Squad: 3 Reasons You Keep Me Grounded

February 9, 2016

  Many people I know were lucky enough to have an older or younger sister to bond with, grow up with, fight with, learn from, and love. However, I was given a life filled with two older brothers whom I love, but just don’t get me the way a sister may. Luckily, I didn’t have to go through my entire twenty-three years on this earth without a sister (or three). For ten years now I have been blessed with my…

3 Non-Traditional Valentine's Day Dates to Do With Your SO

February 4, 2016

If you’re anything like me, being handed a stuffed teddy bear, heart-shaped necklace, and heart-shaped box of chocolates on Valentine’s Day is not your thing. That teddy bear will inevitably become my dogs toy, that necklace will never be worn, and those chocolates thrown out. I’m not a cynical brat, but like to be more realistic when it come to the holiday of love. In my opinion, Valentine’s Day was way cooler when we were kids, and that’s how I…

3 Reasons You Should Practice The Law Of Attraction

January 4, 2016

Despite what you believe or don’t believe, I know one thing is for sure-the universe WANTS to help us all. I’ve done enough self-help book reading, self-reflecting, and research to understand that one thing. And coming from a cynical, sarcastic, ‘The world hates me’ kind of girl (I’m working on that part), that is saying a lot. The law of attraction is a pretty simple concept to grab a hold of: you think positive thoughts, positive things will come to…

December 1, 2015

  On a daily basis, we are all pulled in a million and one different directions. Friends, family, work- it can all be a lot to handle. With everyone shoving their opinions, ideas, thoughts, feelings, and occasionally (or all the time in some cases) their negativity your way it’s hard to really stay true to yourself. However, it’s not impossible. Re-centering ourselves, remembering why we started whatever journey we’re on, and sticking to our goals can be done. It may…

How To Make Lemonade When Life Keeps Handing You Lemons

November 17, 2015

Dealing with life can be hard in general, never mind when it feels like nothing can go right. Everywhere you turn it feels like life is shoving another ‘lemon’ in your face, and you’re not sure whether or not to cry, laugh, or just give up altogether. I don’t know about you, but unless that lemon is spiked with vodka, I want nothing to do with it. The saying goes, “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.”- but how the…

October 13, 2015

Every one of us at one time or another has hoped and prayed that we would find ‘the one’, except he or she never seemed to come. Were we not looking in the right places? Was there something wrong with us? These questions may have crossed your mind at one time or another, or maybe they have been today.
