1. Not all redheads are pale.

Yes, I understand the majority are, however let’s be open- minded to the fact not all are. As shocking as it is when I go on vacation to the beach I do in fact get a tan and am more than capable of being out in the sunlight.

2. Freckles are also extremely common, however not all redheads have freckles.

Every redhead is different and every hair color is entitled to have some freckles. Not just red. Every person is entitled to be different than the norm.

3. Another misconception about redheads is that we all have bad tempers.

Let’s be real here folks, can’t we all get a little mad sometimes? The color red does symbolize danger and passion, so this is where people have came up with this stereotype. Therefore, most assume that fiery red hair leads to a fiery personality.Some choose to own that reputation, while others really do not care. Don't confuse our drive and motivation for being short tempered.

4. "Gingers do not have souls.”

If I’m being honest, I have never really understood this one. I have heard the saying, “Every freckle on a redhead represents a soul they have stolen.” Again, what if you do not have freckles? Totally, totally misunderstood.

5. When you were younger and I’m talking pre- Frozen, you always picked Princess Ariel as your favorite Disney princess.

Your blonde or brunette friends could not pick her because let’s be real you definitely had to be Ariel because you had real red hair and you made that very clear to them.

6. I know it is probably a lot easier for you to remember me by my hair color, but I do in fact have a name.

Of course, I am proud of my hair color and I am happy that is what makes me stand out to you. It’s just my name is not ginger, red, carrot top, etc. Don’t get me wrong here, most of my friends call me ginger, but if you don’t really know me I would definitely prefer you learned my name first.

7. The redhead in your life will always hold a special place in your heart.

Whether they have a fiery personality, no freckles, freckles, tan, or burn to a crisp they are unlike anyone you know. They posses unique qualities that make them one of a kind. At the end of the day every person needs a redhead in their life.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.
