Let's make a difference.

People are just so great. I can't get over it. Each person is made differently, so unique, it's beyond beautiful. There is a story behind each and every person, a story that we are all still walking through. We are all human. We all make mistakes. Mistakes are what we can grow from; a mistake does not define someone. We are called to love one another the way Christ loves us. and He loves us beyond what we can even imagine. He loves every flaw, every feature, and most importantly- everything that we don't like about ourselves. God is full of love. and we should be too

I want to be full of love, in every circumstance. I want to love others even if that means they won't love me back. I want to see others being touched by REAL love. I want to see RADICAL change in my community, and in my city. We are called to love everyone, and that means everyone. Wouldnt it be too easy to only love the people that loved us first? What love really means is to love someone wholeheartedly and take the risk that they might not love you back. Jesus did this. Jesus loved people who cursed Him, hated him, and He loved the people that killed Him. His heart was so pure, so pure for The Lord.

God's love touches people in such a HUGE and drastic way. and we may not even realize it. A simple encouraging word for someone, buying someone's coffee, helping a lady with her groceries across the street, giving a homeless man some change, and just listening to how someone's day can truly radiate the love someone may desperately need deep down. Showing love is simple. It is kind, and pure. Jesus didn't separate himself from the sinners, He bent down to their level and became friends with them. Can you believe that he actually just immersed himself into sin only to be the light in the darkness? JESUS is radical. He has called us to live a radical life and that means we have to step out of our box. out of our comfort zone, and live everyday expecting to touch the lives of many. We need a passion to love others to truly change our community. I believe that we are here to make a difference in the lives of many. How can you make a difference in someone's life if you won't step out of your own comfort zone? Lets be the change in this world that is very much needed. Talk to people, get to know them, and make an impact.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.

I was so excited to vote in my local primary election in August. I eagerly researched my local candidates, combed the newspaper for profiles and policy positions, and shared infographics on Insta about voting deadlines. I considered myself a keen voter.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinology who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

As college students, sometimes life can be overwhelming. Four tests in a week and you only passed one of them? I feel that. Days like that, you just need time for yourself. A time where you're nice to yourself and put your own self-care before anything else.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
