"It is not selfish to love yourself."

20 Life Reminders Every 20-Something Needs

The late teenage years and early twenties are complicated, to say the least.

These are times where you are still trying to figure out who you are and what you are going to do, which often leaves you with doubts and insecurities. I am all about self-love. I believe we must love ourselves before we can accept love from others. It can be difficult, especially if you allow negative people into your life, but it is very attainable.

Every morning, we need to wake up, look in the mirror, and tell ourselves these 20 things because we are all important and cannot let ourselves forget it:

1. Your mind is a powerful force when you fill it with positive thoughts.

2. Do not be limited by the judgment of others.

3. Inside of you is every possibility ever known.

4. Do not compare yourself to others.

5. You are not designed for everyone to like you.

6. Speak your mind.

7. Accept the things you cannot change.

8. Indulge and treat yourself.

9. You are brave and fearless and bold and strong.

10. Let go of the people who do not know how great you are.

11. Know who you are and know it is enough.

12. Smile to yourself, smile at a stranger, smile with your family and friends, just smile.

13. Focus on your own success and achievements.

14. Everything is so beautiful when you stop looking for flaws.

15. You are significant and you matter.

16. Only you know your limits.

17. Do not let anyone take away your peace.

18. Know your goals and never stop reaching for them.

19. Never doubt who you are.

20. It is not selfish to love yourself.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.


At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
