Mean Girl? Never Heard Of Her — Being Nice Is Much More Rewarding

Don't be a Regina George, be kind and be yourself.

Mean Girl? Never Heard Of Her — Being Nice Is Much More Rewarding
Sedona Meadows

Going throughout life you encounter many different types of people. When I meet someone unfriendly I often wonder 'why'? Why is it so difficult to be nice? How did they get like that?

The sayings "it takes more energy to be mean than to be nice" and "it takes more muscles to frown than smile" couldn't be more right.

It is so much easier to be friendly and treat people with kindness than to say something rude and hurt someone's feelings.

I'll admit... when I'm in a bad mood I can get a little snippy. And I'm definitely not preaching happiness and positivity all of the time because I know that is unrealistic... it's our human nature to be a little moody every now and then.

But, with that said, you can be more mindful of how you approach situations. It can be as simple as thinking before you speak or walking away when you know nothing sweet will leave your mouth.

Kindness not only makes others feel good but also makes you feel good when you give it. I don't know about you but I get so happy when I see others smile because of what I said to them. Complimenting one another is such a simple gesture but a great one.

I know when I receive a compliment or nice saying, it makes my entire day better.

So... think about it... it is so easy to make others happy so shouldn't we be doing it more often? I think yes.

You'll never really know why others can be mean or are unfriendly but you can always think about yourself and how you will treat others.

The more love this world gives the more love everyone will receive. And like The Beatles said, "All we need is love" right?

So all I'm saying is don't be a Regina George, be kind and be yourself. You DO have an impact on this world, so use it.

Much love XOXO

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.
