Your best friend is your other half.

An Open Letter To My Best Friend

Dear best friend,

I just want to thank you for everything you have done. You have been through everything with me. No matter hard it has gotten you always have been my right hand. I honestly do not know what I would do without you.

We have made so many memories together, and I know that there are more to come. We’ve traveled together to places we never thought we would see. We ate crazy foods, and did some pretty crazy things. You’ve been there for me when I needed to let some things out, and you’ve been there laughing on the floor with me. We had our fights, and then two seconds later were back too normal. Thanks for being a part of a lot of memories and I can’t wait to make so many more.

Thanks for giving me the best advice. Whether it’s deciding what shoes go with my outfit, or what I should do in certain situations, you always know just what to say. No matter the time of day, I know I can always count on you to answer the phone. I know that no matter how big or small the problem is you have my back and will help me get through it. You were there to keep me going when I wanted to quit. You were there when I got my heart broken. You were there to lift me up when I fell. You have helped me to be who I am today.

Thanks for being the sister I always wanted.You are more than a best friend to me.You are my family.We basically live together most of the time.We eat at each other’s houses more then we eat at our own.Thanks for always letting me go to your house and make me feel like it’s my home.We just walk into each other’s houses without knocking because it’s basically our home.

I know it hasn’t happened yet but thanks for being in my future. I know one day, we’ll be sitting at a fire, like we do every weekend, except this time we’ll have our own families. You’ll probably be my children’s God parents, and I know for sure you’ll be the maid of honor in my wedding. Even then we’ll still be calling each other late at night, trying to figure out the latest gossip.

Finally, thanks for being you. Thank you for always being yourself, and basically being my twin. Thank you for always being there for me no matter how good or bad the situation. Thanks for being the family that I got to choose. Thank you for the memories we’ve made and are going to make. Just remember no matter how far apart we are or where life takes us, you’ll always be my best friend.


Your sister from another mister.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Noah Centineo and Lana Condor are back with the third and final installment of the "To All The Boys I've Loved Before" series


Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
