You can rewrite the stars, just by being you.

The Greatest Showman Cast

Almost a year ago, "The Greatest Showman" premiered in theaters and became one of the most inspirational films I have ever seen. Prior, I was at a point in my life where I had many uncertainties about myself. I doubted my looks and what I could offer to the world.

Once I watched the film, I was inspired. It made me reevaluate all of my insecurities and grow to love them. Here are five quotes from "The Greatest Showman" to help remind you that you should express your originality!

“You don’t need everyone to love you, just a few good people.”

Many of us seek validation from others, even from those who do not care about us. We tend to forget the ones who are rooting for us every step of the way. Whether it is your family, friends, or mentors, do not disregard them. Thank them for being your biggest fans.

"And if it's crazy, live a little crazy"

Take risks. It may difficult, but the outcome will be worthwhile. Don't settle for less!

"No one ever made a difference being like everyone else."

It is one thing to conform to be someone else OR be inspired by others to be your best self. Your ideas matter, so do not be afraid to put them into action. Appreciating your self-worth will make you Zac Efron-happy.

"Don't listen to them. They don't understand you, but they will." 

When the haters see you achieving your dreams, they are going to think twice about underestimating your greatness! Just wear your top hat with confidence and do you.

"Take the world and redefine it." 

The world is yours. There are many opportunities for you to create the right change needed for the world. Use your skills to make it a reality.

"They come to see you... Your crazy ideas. Your new acts. The unusual."

As there are haters, there are supporters. Do not let them down by second-guessing your awesomeness.

"Everyone is special and nobody is like anyone else. That's the point of my show."

Whether you can swing with such grace like Anne Wheeler or sing your heart out like The Bearded Lady, your originality and how you present yourself to the world never goes unnoticed. There is only one you! Take pride in that!

"I think of what the world could be, a vision of the one I see."

P.T. and Charity dream big about their future - the endless possibilities, the obstacles. Remember, however big or small, you can achieve as well.

"Everyone's got an act." 

Which is absolutely true. We all have something to offer to the world. Never deny your true potential.

"I am brave. I am bruised. I am who I'm meant to be. This is me."

We all face challenges and, in some instances, may try to make us give up. "This is Me" highlights that obstacles should not stop you from being the best you that you can be. Fight back and take on whatever comes next. You are a warrior!

Thank you "The Greatest Showman" for existing. And for reminding us that we are all sorts of amazing!

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead

Everyone needs a day to themselves sometimes.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

On Sunday Morning

Breaking Free

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.
