Enjoy Every Step Of The Way
Katie Pyle

Life is full of beginnings and it's full of ends. It's also filled with consistent things. Sometimes it's things we don't look at in the same way or as often because they're always there. What's important to remember is that everything came from a beginning. Every good, bad, wonderful and everything in between, comes from some sort of a beginning at one point in time. The older we get, the more beginnings we recognize and truly appreciate.

There are times when we find a good thing and want to run full speed ahead because we found something that works for us. When we find something, or even more so someone, we can find ourselves rushing ahead. We want to know more about them while wanting them to know more about us. What we sometimes forget is the fun that every phase of getting to know someone has to offer. Of course we want to become close and know one another well as soon as possible but don't forget to enjoy every 'first' along the journey.

Enjoy the first time you have to meet someone's family, the first holiday spent together, the first adventure, the first everything. Although we sometimes want to go forward and be comfortable with everyone in every situation a relationship may bring us to, we'll never have these firsts again that give us the memories. There's a first time for everything and with every 'first time' we become closer to one another, constantly learning and experiencing more.

Over time firsts becomes seconds and seconds become thirds and so on. Time begins to fly but our memories with someone will always be there. We need to realize the importance of making the most of every phase, every step of the way because without even noticing we begin to look back and think of all of these times the closer we get to someone.

Don't rush things but don't forget to continue to advance, moving forward all of the time. Relationships are built over time, when we're not even trying to skip ahead, rather simply enjoying someone's company and their presence as you adventure through life together. So, like always, enjoy the new endeavors, enjoy the journey and enjoy every step of the way. With every day we're adding something incredible to our life's story.

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves. I realize not everyone believes in astrology-related anything, and there are plenty of people who don't fit their signs. However, I'm one of the people who truly fits their sign to a tee. I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there

Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
