All The Things Rachel Green Taught Us

We are all beyond obsessed with all of the vibrant and relatable characters from Friends, but after watching all 10 seasons more than three times all the way through, I realized that I learned the most valuable lessons from Rachel Green. Don't judge me. All the girls want to be her and all the guys want to date her. Rachel, who is seen as the spoiled-brat daddy's girl, finds herself all over again with the help of these five friends.

Rachel, who decides on her wedding day not to marry rich dentist Berry, feels like she's hit rock bottom. Rachel, even in her late 20's, teaches us it's never to late to start over. Even though Rachel and her parents had her whole life planned out for her, Rachel decided that she wasn't going to settle for less than what she deserved. Starting over may be scary but in the end it's worth it. If you wake up one morning and no longer want to be a shoe then guess what? You don't have to the shoe anymore! You have the power to decide how you want your life to be.

Rachel also teaches us how to leave toxic friends and make new friends. Rachel, who has shallow and meaningless friendships with other rich friends, realizes that she deserves to have better friends. Although these 'friends' may act as a safety net for you they are not worth it. In your life you want people who are always going to raise you up not bring you down. No matter what age it is always possible to make new friends you just have to put yourself out there.

Rachel gives us hope that it's okay to be a crappy waitress and then eventually find your passion in life. Even while all of her friends have successful jobs and careers, she decides to give up her parent's money and start from scratch. It's also extremely important to work hard at what you are doing so that you can climb your way up the ladder. Always know though that it's okay if you don't know what your passion is in life but you should go out and find it.

Rachel teaches us it's never too late to fall in love with our childhood friends. Even though in high school Rachel barely even noticed Ross, they later on fall in love and *spoiler alert* get married and have some children. Whether it is your childhood friend you fall in love with or the man in the grocery store it's never too late for love. Rachel has taught us to never give up on love because in the end you run off a plane to find the man you love and it all works out happily ever after.

Listen to Rachel. Can Rachel Green do anything wrong? Well, yes she can and that's why we love her. In Rachel we trust.

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
