When God gives you little sister you don't realize how much you are going to learn from them. When my little sister was first born I was so happy because I was little and it meant I had someone to play school and house with. The more we grew up the more thankful I became for her because it was like God gave me a built in best friend. I am also very blessed to have the sweetest little step sister as well. I am a little farther apart in age with her so I never went through the playing school and house phase with her but she is my little best friend and I don't know what I would do without her. Here are 5 of the many reasons I am so thankful for both of my little sisters.

1. Iced Coffee Runs.

When God gives you little sisters, he really gives you people you can bring anywhere. I have two little sisters, one full sister and, one step sister and they are always down for an iced coffee run. They understand the need for Iced Coffee almost every day.

2. They know my worth more than I do, sometimes.

My little sisters always remind me of how kind I am and how much I deserve. They listen to all my rants about boys and friends and they tell me if they feel like I need to drop someone. They won't let me be treated badly by anyone and I am so thankful for that.

3. They push me to be the best person I can be.

When you have two little sisters looking up to you and watching everything you do, you try to be the very best you can be. They are always watching you to see what decisions you are going to make and when you make bad ones they see that. They watch you make good choices and they see you get praised for them so in turn, they want to do the same.

4. They teach me patience.

If you have younger siblings, remember all of the arguments you used to get in? All of those arguments have taught me to have patience with people and not to get upset too fast. I am still not perfect at being patient but having little sisters has helped a lot!

5. They never let me cry for more than a few minutes.

These girls cheer me up faster than anyone. They are the best at making me laugh when I am crying. Whether they come up and hug me or tell me a super cheesy joke, they can make me smile or laugh when I am at my lowest.

Your little sisters were probably your first real friend and are always going to be a life long friend for you. If you have a little sister, don't forget to remind them how thankful you are for them.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinology who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

As college students, sometimes life can be overwhelming. Four tests in a week and you only passed one of them? I feel that. Days like that, you just need time for yourself. A time where you're nice to yourself and put your own self-care before anything else.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
