5 Easy Ways to Make 2017 A Great Year

Try these 5 things to help yourself have a great year this year!

1. Pray

Nothing bad ever comes from praying. Jesus loves to hear from His children so let's all start off 2017 in a reflective, prayerful way. There is power in prayer to God!

2. Stay in touch with family

Haven't called your parents lately? Well, now is the perfect time to give them a call and tell them about your week. They want to hear how you're doing! (You're welcome, moms and dads.)

3. Read a new book every month

Google a list of books and stick to a goal of reading something new once a month. This doesn't have to be reading- just something to take you away from your schedule that helps you relax for a bit.

4. Travel to a new place

This can be going somewhere in your town that you've been wanting to see or traveling to a bigger city to go to the zoo or find hiking trails. (I would suggest getting outside with this one- you need a day outside!)

5. Get a new playlist

I'm as guilty as the next person of listening to the same album over and over again. But why don't you try listening to a random playlist on Spotify or Pandora and see what good songs you can find!

These things aren't guaranteed to bring you happiness but they can help you try new things and have a great year. Bring it on 2017!

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
