“The mission behind Find Your Awesome Today LLC is to empower people, especially young girls and women of all ages, to take control of what surrounds them.” Find Your Awesome Today! is nothing short of phenomenal; it is a retail company based in middle Tennessee that provides clothing featuring the image of a confident woman winking. Founder, Tori Weiss of Columbia, Tennessee, has been working constantly to spread the positive message to those around her and help people to find their “awesome” no matter the circumstance.

Tori first got the idea for Find Your Awesome Today! while going through physical therapy. She had ruptured her bicep doing an exercise she had performed perfectly many times before. While the menial tasks of PT were frustrating in the beginning, her incredible determination and positivity helped her to turn it around. She explains, “Something very important I realized during this period of time was that my "awesome" will be very different from day to day. Accepting that this is okay has helped me persevere through many challenges.” She calls it a “humbling experience” and her inspiring story is already helping people to find their awesome.

Today she is “making the most out of every opportunity…to talk with people about the message behind Find Your Awesome Today!” Tori encourages people to share their experiences and find the courage to take action and make the most of every situation. With the help of her talented niece Erin, Tori has made Find Your Awesome Today! T-shirts with multiple designs. The original features a woman running and winking “as if to say ‘I’ve got this.’” With the t-shirts, Tori’s idea for a company that would help to empower young girls and women blossomed and became real. In today’s world it’s important to instill confidence in youthful America, particularly young girls; Find Your Awesome Today! is doing just that and it has been a tremendous addition to Columbia’s community.

There is a Find Your Awesome Today LLC Facebook Page that encourages people to share their stories about finding their Awesome. Tori also plans to post on the page to reach out to women of all ages, especially those that may need a nudge to take action and find their Awesome. She encourages people to support the Find Your Awesome Today! message by paying attention to what surrounds them. “If you are a student who notices a classmate who eats lunch alone or sits in the back of the room by them self or you work in an office and have a co-worker who seems to be struggling please try to have a conversation and make a connection with that person so they will not feel alone,” she says, “There are many ways to share the Find Your Awesome Today! message with others. As Ellen DeGeneres says at the close of every show, ‘be kind to one another.’” Helping those around you to find their Awesome can help you find yours as well.

To learn more about Tori and Find Your Awesome Today! you can visit the website FindYourAwesomeToday.com, as well as liking the Facebook page and sharing it with your community.

Why Your Grandma Is Your Biggest Blessing In Life

Because nobody loves you more than she does.

There are many people in your life you are thankful for: Mom, Dad, siblings, cousins, best friends, teachers, neighbors, you name it. You are grateful to have people who constantly support you, who pick you up when you're down and love you unconditionally. But the one person who stands out among the rest of them is your grandma.

Ever since you were little, you and your grandma have always had a special connection. Going over to Grandma's house for the night was something you looked forward to. She knew how to entertain you at your best and worst moments. No matter what you did together, you loved it. Being with your grandma wasn't like being at home or with your parents – it was better. You went to the park, made cookies, went out to dinner, got a “sweet treat" at the mall, played Go Fish, took a bubble bath for as long as you wanted and got way too much dessert than you should have. You did things you weren't supposed to do, but Grandma didn't stop you. Because at Grandma's house there were no rules, and you didn't have to worry about a single thing. Being with Grandma was the true epitome of childhood. She let you be you. She always made sure you had the best time when you were with her, and she loved watching you grow up with a smile on your face.

The older you got, your weekend excursions with your grandma weren't as frequent, and you didn't get to see her as much. You became more and more busy with school, homework, clubs, sports, and friends. You made the most out of your time to see her, and you wished you could be with her more. Although you were in the prime of your life, she mattered even more to you the older you both became. You were with your friends 24/7, but you missed being with your grandma. When the time rolled around, and you got the chance to spend time with her, she told you never to apologize. She wanted you to go out, have fun and enjoy life the way it makes you happy.

Reflecting back on these moments with your grandma, you realize how truly special she is to you. There is no one who could ever compare to her nor will there ever be. All your life, there is no one who will be as sweet, as caring, as sincere or as genuine as her. Even though you're all grown up now, there are things about your grandma that never changed from when you were a kid. She still takes you out for your favorite meal because she knows how important eating out means to you. She writes you letters and sends you a $5 bill every now and then because she knows you're a hard-working college student with no money. She still helps you with all of your Christmas shopping because she knows it's your tradition. She still asks what's new with your young life because hearing about it makes her day and she still loves you to no end. Your grandma is your biggest blessing (whether you knew it or not), and she always will be no matter what.

Let's be real, most college students are not living it up on a beach in Cabo San Lucas. Here are seven things you are more likely to do on Spring Break:

1. MAKE THAT COIN SIS

* "Work" by Rihanna blares in the background *

2. Take all of that coin and PAY THOSE BILLS

Giphy

"She Works Hard for the Money" is basically your life anthem by this point.

3. Do the 20 assignments that were assigned... over a Spring BREAK

Giphy

We love a professor who strategically assigns projects over break that will take 5+ plus to research and complete.

4. Vigorously self-tan at home so you aren't the only pale one when school is back in session

Giphy

*self tans once* *becomes an Instagram model Hollywood Tans advocate overnight*

3: Report to FAFSA everyone that is going to Florida in a five star Air BnB

Giphy

Were you not just counting quarters to buy a Starbucks last week?

6. Finally tackle that load of laundry on the floor

Giphy

Everest? Fuji? It was bound to be named a mountain by some point

7. Count down the days until ACTUAL Spring

Giphy

Let's be honest, the REAL Spring isn't coming for another two months.
