Grandma’s Love and Sass Summed Up In 10 Comments

"You only need to wear ripped jeans once in front of your grandma until you will never do it again."

Grandma’s Love and Sass Summed Up In 10 Comments

Grandmas are the wise old women in the story books, only with a lot more spunk. And, more often than not, they don't hold back on their commentary (which, after 80+ years of being alive, I would be sick of biting my tongue too). Here are the 10 comments your grandma is guaranteed to say to you at your next family function.

1. Ask if you've had enough to eat

Because, if you don't eat an amount of food that could adequately feed a small whale, the results could only be catastrophic.

2. Ask how your love life is

And, regardless of how long you have been dating your significant other, your Grandma will still refer to him/her as your "friend."

3. Slyly insult millennials

You only need to wear ripped jeans once in front of your grandma until you will never do it again.

4. Comment about the waitress/waiter

The food hasn't arrived yet? The waitress has a nose piercing? The male waiter has a ponytail? Grandma will make sure we all know in the kindest-sassiest way.

5. Tell hilarious stories about her son/daughter

Nothing is better than hearing embarrassing stories about your dad when he was eight years old.

6. Laugh at how ‘old’ she is

Even though she is 90 years old and still hosts a garage sale each weekend…like Grandma, I sometimes sleep with the lights on because I am too lazy to get up and turn off the switch…

7. Gossip about her small town

It is necessary to keep updated on Debbie repainting her house to an off-green that clashes with the entire block. And of course whispering the entire time, because you never know who could be listening.

8. Tell you how proud she is

Grandmas don't lie, they have lived far too long to try and hold anything back (and rightfully so). Therefore, when your grandma holds your hand and tells you how proud she is, it is one of the best compliment you'll ever receive.

9. Ask about your future plans

Also, grandmas are noisy. Therefore, you better have a response of what you plan to do with your life ready, because an "I don't know" will not satisfy her curiosity.

10. Tell you she has money or a gift

Bless her sweet little heart, the woman always has a five dollar bill up her sleeve or an old bracelet from her jewelry box to bestow upon you at the end of the day. The woman is truly a saint.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers

87223

Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
