Future Self, I Hope You Still Have A Big Heart, Instead Of Allowing The Cruel World To Get You Down

Sometimes this world can be dark but you always brought a light to it.

Future Me,

I truly hope that you have reached your goal and you are happy. I know that life hasn't always been easy, but I know it has been a journey full of experiences and challenges. I hope that you have been embracing every moment and appreciating every opportunity. I hope that you have been challenging yourself. You always needed the extra push sometimes. I hope that you remained blissfully enchanted by everyone you meet. I hope that you are still choosing to have a big heart, instead of allowing the cruel world to get to you. I hope that you have been honest, even if your honesty created turmoil. The only thing we have in this life to be remembered by is our word. I hope that you created something, and you are proud of it.

I hope that you are reckless sometimes, you never have been good at taking chances and you needed to be. I hope that you are being the best teacher you can be, you were always told you were going to change the lives of your students. I hope that you are still allowing yourself to let people in, even when others show you reasons not too. I hope that you are still the kind of person that would drop anything to do anything for anyone.

I hope that you are still holding your family and friends close to you because they have always been so important. I hope that you aren't overworking yourself and you are finding time to just relax. I hope that you are still writing. It has been important to you forever and just because life gets distracting I don't want you to lose that. I hope you are still finding the positive side of every situation and using that to your advantage. I hope you wake up happy every day and embrace all the things this life has given you.

Future me, what I really am trying to say is that you deserve the world, so I hope that you are taking advantage of life and remembering all the greatness in the world. Sometimes this world can be dark but you always brought a light to it.

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
