Life is a roller coaster ride.

Ups. Downs.

Twists. Turns.

Do you want to hear a secret, though? It's your life. Your unique, one-of-a-kind life. And if you're lucky, you'll get the chance to see how things pan out. And if you're really lucky, you'll be the happiest you've ever been.

But with life's rollercoaster rides come growth and realizations. If you're here reading this article, maybe you've found yourself in that unique phase of life that's requiring you to reevaluate, reclaim, and renew. I like to call this "revivalism."

Honestly, you should be excited. Life's possibilities are ahead of you. This is a chance to become the best version of yourself.

If you're in your phase of revivalism, take note of these 15 words. After all, they're words you should live by.

Grace. 

Walk and talk with some much grace that people wonder, "How did she get to be this poised?"

And most importantly, give yourself credit.

Patience. 

Good things take time. Believe this and those good things will be knocking before you know it.

Steadfastness. 

This is a big one.

In order to better yourself, you first need to get your thoughts and goals in order.

Then, you will be so unwavering in your words and actions.

"How is she so tough? Why is she so determined?"

Resilience. 

Don't take crap from anyone or anything. That includes life.

Find the good in every situation.

Originality. 

Be you. And never apologize for it.

Humility. 

In order to be the best version of yourself, you need to be empathetic towards people and life.

Most importantly, you need to be rooted in the decisions that you make.

Wittiness. 

This will just make ya feel good.

Flexible. 

Adjust as needed.

Poetic. 

This word is interesting; many of us might internalize it differently.

For me, this word reminds me to flow and to imagine.

 Confidence. 

Stop doubting yourself and your abilities. Trust me when I say you're good enough and the people around you know it.

 Grounded. 

Be in touch with yourself and the things that you need.

 Creativity. 

Try new things and meet new people.

Travel to new places. Read new books.

Express yourself.

 Bold. 

This goes along with confidence.

Be bold in your actions. People will be in awe.

 Quiet. 

But also know when it's okay to take a step back.

 Faith. 

Regardless of what or who you believe in, having faith in something bigger than you will transform your life in ways you probably can't imagine.

For me, this is Jesus. For you, it may be different.

But we all need something or someone to believe in. That include ourselves.

Write these words down.

They'll be your words for 2019.

Now go ahead: reevaluate, reclaim, and renew.

You only get one life. Embrace it.

I'm so proud of Demi Lovato's new, powerful breakup ballad, "Still Have Me." After her split from fiancé Max Ehrich, she is pulling herself out from the darkness, picking up the shattered pieces, and realizing that she's got this. If that's not inspirational, I don't know what is.

Trader Joe's has been my favorite grocery store since I knew it existed — from the small, community-like feel to the prepped frozen snacks I throw in the oven 10 minutes before having guests over, it's been a go-to for me for over a decade.

During the four years in college I didn't live near one, friends and I would make a semi-annual pilgrimage to the one nearest us hours away to pick up our favorite essentials, all on a college budget.

It's important to recognize that we all go through different experiences based on the reproductive systems we're born with. Yes, the penis and vagina do different things. I want to understand what it's like to walk around with a pair of balls and I'd hope others are curious about what it's like to bleed once a month, endure infertility issues, and just have a uterus and identify as a woman.

I'm not going to lie — I was pleasantly surprised by the answers I received when I asked 12 men about some basic reproductive health. Here's what they had to say.

Many people want to help when they learn someone they know is going through or has been through, a rough period in life. The issue lies in the right way to approach the situation without making it worse. These encounters, whether they be continuous or a single conversation, are never easy. It's okay to feel discomfort and to question whether or not you're handling it properly.

There are a few things I've found to be mostly universal in theory (if not in full thought) from the person going through a tough time. I hope this brings some understanding and perspective for the next time you have a sit down with someone you care for.

PCOS Is The Worst, But The Women Battling It Every Day Are Extraordinary

Women are learning new ways to assist hormonal health every single day.

1636

Everyone knows someone who has polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Maybe you don't know that you know, but with 10% of women in the United States having the autoimmune disease, it's more common than you'd think. The hormonal hell that many of these women go through is not only painful, but it's exhausting, with too few answers thanks to a lack of research and consistency.

This lack of research makes the disease rather "trial and error" for many women, as everyone's case is different and requires them to figure things out based on experimentation. Thankfully, the women of the world are good at fixing problems. While PCOS has caused me a lot of hurt, I've been blown away by the women I've met who continue to tackle this battle head-on, one day at a time.

OK, listen, I also think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is cool. I had an Elizabeth Warren sign in my dorm room for a while. I'm currently interning for a congressional candidate. I'm very invested in politics. And supporting and liking certain politicians over others is a part of being invested in politics.
