I have been told that I might be a little too impulsive. However, many people give that word a bad rap. they use the word "spontaneous" to make it sound more appealing. I admit that yes, sometimes I do not think about the choice I am about to make, but eight out of 10 times, it leads to something good and memorable. So, here I will list why being impulsive can help you!

1. You will meet so many new people.

When you decide to go out of your way to meet new people you can meet some of the most amazing friends.

I have always been someone who will stop and talk to strangers anywhere. yes, I am safe about it don't worry. The people I have met randomly have forever changed my life. Even if you don't become great friends you will learn something new.

2. You will change for the better.

Making decisions quickly that you normally would think over will make you more confident in who you are. sounds weird? You know who you are better than any other person, so trust your gut. It will make you a better you!

3. You will explore the world around you more.

Going to new places is fun! if you keep going to the same spots over and over again you won't get immersed in your community. It might be awkward going out of your comfort zone, but I have yet to regret pushing myself a little.

4. The memories will last forever.

You will make many more fun memories! If you plan something out it doesn't always go as planned, but you usually know what to expect. When you have no plan its a whole different ride. going into something not know what to expect has made some of my best memories.

5. It is a little bit thrilling.

We can't all skydive or cliff jump every day like some lucky people. However, that doesn't mean we can't find thrills around us. Making yourself go with the flow or push some of the limits is exciting and somethings can even give you an adrenalin rush.

6. You will be a little smarter than before.

You will learn a lot more about the world around you so you will have a lot more information on life. The decisions we make impact our future, so if you are impulsive you will probably be well informed.

7. You might make some interesting purchases.

if you have the cash to spare you might pick up some weird things along the way. For example, I bought a hamster. did I really think about it? no. Do I think he makes my life better? 100%. I knew I could pay for him to have a good life, so why not!

8. You will relate to others better.

Because you will meet a lot more people, you will understand people better.

9. You will think outside the box.

Your life experience will make you think outside of the box. You will Also probably problem solve faster, so it is a big win!

10. Life is more fun!

Life is just more fun when you let yourself live freely!

Make fun decisions and live your life how you want to. you are the only one in control of your path! However, please make safe decisions and put your health first! Have fun and push yourself to do new things.

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

The Power Of Journaling

Slowing down in a fast pace world.

In a world where everything is moving so fast pace, I have found comfort in taking small moments to reflect on the blurring images around me. I have always loved to journal, but recently I have found a system that works very well for me.

One habit that I have newly formed is creating a section in my journal that I like to call "Get Out of My Head." Life moves very fast and sometimes my thoughts can't keep up. This causes stress, anxiety, sadness and even the feeling of loneliness. I have created this section in my journal to be a safe place where I can just scribble down whatever is taking over my head, but there is a trick.

Like I stated previously, I have always loved to journal, but I never found ultimate comfort in it because I would go back and read what I wanted to remove from my mind. This was causing me to reexperience what I didn't want to. I highly suggest having a place in your journal that is essentially a flame for all th4e thoughts you want to rid of.

On the contrary, have a section in your journal where you love to look. I try and fill this section with happy thoughts, quotes, verses, and gratitude. This makes journaling and reading your entries something to look forward to, rather than not.

In conclusion, journaling is unique for everyone and it takes some time to figure out exactly the right way. But once you discover the safe place that journaling can be, it can change your life forever.
