You Can Do This!

6 Things Every Young Women Needs To Hear

1. It is OK not to have your life together:

I know that it seems that if you don’t get your life together now, you never will, but that is far from the truth. You will do amazing things with your life, just give yourself time. This is the fun part, this is the time when you find out who you are and what you want to do with your life. If someone tells you they had everything figured out at your age, odds are they were exactly where you are now.

2. The number on the scale is just a number:

Society has had a way of making us feel that if you do not look a certain way then you are not beautiful, however, you are beautiful the way you are. Every curve and inch of you makes you unique. So wear what you want, if it makes you feel beautiful then wear it proudly. Have that extra slice of pizza, because that number on the scale is just a number, and it does not define you. Most importantly next time someone tells you’re beautiful, believe them. Sometimes you don’t see yourself the way others see you.

3. You will find Mr. Right:

Not everyone finds Mr. Right in college. You will find him when you least expect it. Life has a way of surprising us in the strangest of ways. I have found that when you stop looking, love has a way of finding you. Mr. Right is out there just give him some time.

4. Believe in yourself:

You can ace that exam, you can do anything you set your mind to, and you can do this! The moment that you think you can’t is the moment that you sell yourself short. Your attitude determines your direction, don’t ever forget that.

5. Let go of the past:

People will come and go in our lives but it is the ones that stay that truly matter. That friend that betrayed you, or that guy that hurt in whatever way, let them go, you are doing yourself more harm than good by dwelling on the past or holding a grudge. Sometimes it the best to accept the apology you never received. Grudges are a waste of perfect happiness, laugh as often as you can, apologize when you should and learn to accept the things you cannot change.

6. Have fun, love life, and most importantly love yourself:

These are the years you will look back on for the rest of your life so enjoy them! You don’t get these years back, and as cliché as that may sound, it is true. Plan a trip, or even plan a weekend with your friends, laugh a little, go for a walk and enjoy the views and the world around you. Have fun! Inhale the good and exhale the bad. Love the life you are living because life is a beautiful gift, but most importantly love yourself.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
