To The Girl Who Feels Lost, You Will Find Yourself Again

Now that you are willing to take control again, it will be difficult, but I hope that you don't give up.

girl walking into ocean waves

I know that you haven't had it easy. Your life spiraled out of your control, which caused you to let yourself lose sight of what was important. Now that you are willing to take control again, it will be difficult, but I hope that you don't give up. When you fell, you had to realize that the uphill climb from rock bottom would be challenging. It is OK though, because after all of these complications you are going to be stronger and more confident in your abilities. You are going to have so many reasons to make sure that you are taking care of yourself. You wandered away from who you are, but I have high hopes for you.

I hope that you allow yourself to fail sometimes. I hope that you allow yourself to see all of the sides of every situation before making conclusions about them. I hope that you are able to remember your past while creating your future. I hope that you are surrounding yourself with a support system that allows you to be yourself always. I hope that you can trust yourself enough to make your own choices. I hope that you trust you take chances. I hope that you do what makes you happy. I hope that you don't let your failures overpower your successes. I hope that you don't give up yourself for someone else. I hope that you consider other's feelings when you utter certain words. I hope that you allow kindness to guide you. I hope that you pull yourself back up. I hope that you never fall back down. Lastly, I hope that you find yourself.

You have been missing for a while. The people you love have missed your smile. They missed your optimism and your laugh. They missed how you could influence a room with your voice. They missed that your forgiving nature made them better people. I hope that you found your path and that you have returned back to where you belong. You may have wandered, but I knew you were never completely lost.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s.

Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
