Live In The Moment

Take a look around. All that is happening right now, right this very second, will never happen again. We take for granted our time here on this earth like we're going to live forever. The harsh reality is that all that we have can be taken from us in any given moment. So stop sitting around and stop sulking over the past. The past is gone, whatever happened happened. The past cannot be changed. The future cannot be determined. All that you have in your power to change is the now. You can sit around and dwell and stress and waste these precious moments of life you've been given with all of your misery, or you can go out change your energy, and do something for yourself.

Enjoy the company of those surrounding you and don't take a single second of their presence for granted. Time is so precious, so don't waste it. Get off your phone and listen to what people have to say, speak what's on your mind. Live in the moment.

We have to power to make ourselves happy and to seize each and every moment. Instead of stressing about what the future holds, live in the present and use each moment as a way to better yourself and your life. You make your own decisions; so make the right ones. Choose to enjoy each moment and all that you have instead of wishing and waiting for something else to come. If all our lives are spent wishing and waiting, we will miss what we have right in front of us right now.

I know life can suck sometimes, and sometimes we want more than anything to sleep the day away, but even in the bad, there is some good if you look closely enough. Find comfort in those that you love, or even find comfort in doing what you love. Don't let anything hold you back from happiness. Strive to spend as little time of your life being anything but happy.

Spend each moment like it's your last. Stop waiting around and thinking "what could be" or "what could've been." Go out, right this very second, and get what you want. Stop waiting around. Life is short, spend time with the people you love and do whatever it is that makes you happy. Life moves fast, remember to stop for a second and take a look around. Make sure to live each and every second to the fullest.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

6813

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
