An Open Letter To Me, In The Future

Dear Future Me,

You're beautiful, intelligent, dashing, gallant, noble, wanderlust, inspiring, and most importantly deserving of anything miraculous. You are not ugly. You are not worthless. You are not a disappointment. You are not a shadow in this world. You are amazing and unique in every way possible. You have made mistakes in the past, but haven't we all. You can rude, ignorant, misdemeaning, and high-tempered. But us as human beings you are allowed to act in every way emotionally in order to learn. We react in coarse and intrusive ways as a defensive mechanism to our own well being. Inherit this outlook next time you want to do something to a being that is below any spark of kindness. Look at it from their perspective or view it from the third eye. We make irrational decisions based on how we feel at that very moment, but in a few hours from then, you won't be feeling that way. Or imagine how your words can impact them, imagine if they did this to you as to what you are about to do to them.

Always look at moments like these from different angles and your perspective will be forever changed. Many of us try to make certain ideas and events happening in our lives but look at all the different avenues you had to take just to get to this point was for a specific reason. Our life carves out pathways for a reason and you were chosen to take that path. I know right now you may be questioning some events and aspects that have occurred in your life and if you aren't satisfied where you are not right in your life, make a change. It is never too late to make a change in your life. I am a huge believer in everything happens for a particular reason.

And at that very instant it may not make sense and you may be asking why did this have to happen to you and not someone else. Well, look at it this way. God chose to put you through this cause he knew you were strong enough. God put you through this cause he knew you were capable of this. He knew how you were strong, independent, and able to overcome any obstacle. And if it felt like hell and you never thought you could get through it. Look at yourself in the mirror and see how far you've come in life.

Remember nothing is permanent. Everything comes and goes and things that are happening right now won't be happening in the future. Terrible things that have happened to us all in the past have taught us a lot about ourselves. We have grown immensely and are learning so much about our within capability. So don't go back and try to change things that have happened in the past because they don't matter.

Every day is a new day and if you focus on the past you will never be living in the present and to me, that's a sad life because look around today and see how amazing and beautiful this world is. We have artifacts and natural barriers and human beings that are there to inspire us every day and I hope you all find something to hold on to that inspires you just like certain things do for me. All those people in your life who kept trying to bring you down, all the people that told you that you weren't good enough, all the people who hated you.

Listen to me when I say this. Anyone who does this to you is insecure within themselves and they get self-satisfaction from putting others down. So remember it is not you, it is them. They aren't as strong as you are, as beautiful as you are, and not as successful as you are. They are jealous. So keep your head up and don't listen to those people. I hope you're satisfied with your life and are doing the things you love to do. We all should all love our job and our work and if not then it is not the right profession for you. Find something that makes it easy to go into work every day. Something that inspires you and brings out the best in you. I hope you are in love with yourself and maybe even a significant other. But if you aren't don't worry. He is out there.

Everyone is deserving of an amazing love story. He will come when you least suspect it. He will come when you are not looking, so focus on yourself and your own well-being and I promise he will come along. You first need to love yourself before you can love anyone else. So make sure to do the things you love whether that be traveling, writing, drawing, dancing, sailing, anything that makes your heart glisten and that will bring out the best version of yourself, I promise. I know right now this may be hard to understand and even read for some, but it'll all make sense and come around eventually. Life is full of obstacles and I just want everyone to acknowledge the fact that you are who you are for a reason so don't go try changing yourself because you are beautiful and the uniqueness flower out of all the meadows. Love yourself and I promise life will take you away from there.

Sincerely,

Rachel Levy

Epic Activewear Deals Every Leggings-Lover Needs To Know About From Nordstrom's Biggest Sale

Wearing my pleather Alo leggings till someone physically removes them from my body.

I'll be the first to admit I'm not an athletic person, at all. Since junior high school, I've been happily cheering my friends on at their football games and soccer matches from the sidelines as long as I could go home to my yoga mat and spend Sunday mornings at Pilates with my mom's friends.

Weekends are often spent in my casual wear, from the second I throw them on for morning meditation through running errands and evening walks. No, I won't be running a marathon or joining my friend's volleyball league anytime soon.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

Disney

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

COVID-19 is real people, do your part to protect yourself and others.

Ilana Stein

With the ever-changing reality of our world due to COVID-19, there has been one constant throughout these past unforeseen months, masks. Ever since coronavirus hit the ground running in the US, the CDC has been recommending social distancing and mask-wearing to stop the rapid spread.

Many people have been great about adhering to these policies, mandates, and suggested uses, but others, not so much.

I've been an athlete my entire life. I love movement and I've been jumping, kicking, swimming, dancing, throwing, you name it since I was in diapers. I'm also pretty competitive and probably went through a few sore loser phases. What can I say? I like to win, and losing can sometimes feel like I've failed. Especially, when your competitor is your best friend or someone that you worked all year long to defeat.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.
