Don't Give Up On Your Dreams The First Time That You Fail

You are going to hit bumps along the road of life, but they are only temporary.


A year ago, what kind of person did you think you were going to be today? Did you think that you were going to be the type of person that has changed the world already? Did you think that you were going to be in a relationship? Did you think that you were going to have a better job or be further in school?

Its been 365 days since then and maybe nothing has changed, but maybe everything has changed. Maybe you are exactly where you wanted to be. Maybe you are a little behind where you wanted to be. Maybe you are ahead of where you wanted to be. No matter what, you are where you are meant to be. Things are going moving along exactly the way they are supposed to be.

I hope that if you have fallen behind where you expected to be, you remember that things will be OK. I hope you know never to give up on yourself, even if you have fallen behind. You are going to hit bumps along the road, but they are temporary. Don't sell yourself short of your dreams.

I hope if you are exactly where you wanted to be, that you never forget where you came from. I hope that you remember your struggles and you remember that you had to work to get to where you are and you will have to work to get to where you're going. Don't give up when things get hard.

I hope that if you are doing better than you wanted to be, you see that your hard work has paid off. You have worked so hard to push past your own expectations and you should be really proud of that. I hope that you keep giving your all to live like that, because your drive inspires people.

Don't give up on your dreams if you hit a rough patch and don't settle just because you reach one goal. You have so much to be proud of. If you haven't heard it today, I am proud of you.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

Naya Rivera Is Missing, And She Deserves SO Much More Than Being Labeled 'Big Sean's' Ex'

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

Naya's son's name is Lord and the entire collective is hoping the Lord is with him right now. I'm a firm believer in the Fear of God, I hope all of Naya's love is protecting Lord right now.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
