2019 Is Our Year, Now Fill It With Love, Care And Positivity

As good of a year as 2018 was, I'll be the first to admit that it was a bit rocky at times. However, that being said, we've been blessed with another year, a new year, full of new possibilities and opportunities — and I'm grateful for it.

I don't know about you, but New Year's resolutions are one of my favorite things to make when the new year rolls around. For a long time, I limited myself to only making one, only setting out one goal to accomplish over the course of the year. This year, though? Well, I've made a solid 10. Yep, you read that right. 10 resolutions — because why limit yourself when you don't have to? If 2019 is going to be our year, let's set out to make as many goals as we possibly can, and let's try to accomplish them.

Those goals, for me, include overcoming a lot of things that I saw in 2018. Rather than fill 2019 with a lot of the leftovers emotions that sometimes tended to overcrowd 2018, I want to fill this new year with love, care, and positivity, in every good and right sense of the words.

I want us to go into this new year with a renewed sense of confidence in and love for ourselves and the lives that we've been blessed enough to be given.

Sometimes, for me at least, 2018 held moments that made me lose that confidence in myself or lose that sense of love, and I don't want any of us to translate those feelings into the new year. Life is too short to be down and out, and life is too wonderful to focus on the negatives when there are so many positives all around us.

We live in a wonderful world full of wonderful possibilities and opportunities, and this year, we need to really open our eyes to them. We need to have a positive outlook on life. We need to focus on what is right and good and leave all of the sadness, fear, stress, and anything else that is tormenting us back in 2018 — or at least, we need to try.

We are all beautiful. We are all wonderfully made. We are all so blessed. We all have so much to offer, and we all have so much to be thankful for, We are surrounded by so much love, so much kindness, and so much joy, and 2019 is going to be the year that we see that, the year that we embrace that, and the year that we make the most of that.

2019 is a new year. That means it's giving us a solid moment, and a solid chance to look back on the year we've had, to reevaluate, and to see where and if we want to make changes in our lives for the better — and this year we are going to do just that. We are going to change things by bringing love, care, and positivity into our lives.

Let's make 2019 our year, and let's make the best of it.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
