It's So Important To Know You're Important

Even on your worst days, you still rock.

It's So Important To Know You're Important

If you are having a bad day, keep reading. Especially if it's really bad.

We all struggle. We all have days where the only activity that doesn't seem dreadful is eating an entire box of Thin Mints. That's cool, and no one is judging you. But since you are reading this, so do you know what that means? It means you are alive, (unless you are not, in which case please contact me because that's pretty insane) and that is pretty much the most amazing thing ever and you should definitely not take a single second of it for granted. It is only going to happen once.

Even though I may not know you personally, I am here to tell you that your existence is awesome, even if you think otherwise. Here's why.

Think about this: Your body, the vessel that is keeping all of your insides where they belong, is comprised of only about SIX elements off of the periodic table, and of those six elements, 65% of them become good ol' water.

You are probably wondering why I am boring you with a very basic lesson on the chemistry of the human body.

Well, considering the fact that your physical being is essentially just a fancy bone bag, I think it is safe to say that it is quite astounding that we have the ability to replace our livers every thirty-or-so days, fix our own broken bones via mitosis, and even create new humans.

But do you realize, that beyond the realms of the physiological skill set of the human body lies something so much more unique and powerful? Now, I am not saying that having the ability to repopulate the planet is not pretty much the most bad-ass thing ever, but here's the thing: Your body would be nothing but a hollow shell without your precious, precious soul. It is the very thing that gives life to your collection of skin and bones. More importantly, it is what makes you, you.

Your soul is the part of you that can love. Your soul is the part of you that experiences life. It is the part that is able to connect you to others on a level other than anatomical. It allows you to feel, to hurt, to yearn, to recover, to grow.

After all, your soul is the part of you that gives life to your body and gives light to the world. Even on the worst days, like the one's where you just want to cry in sweatpants, remember that you are you for a reason. Also remember that the curve balls that the universe seem to have aimed so perfectly at your face are simply ways to make yourself even more bad ass, they make the soul inside of you makes you resilient and unstoppable.

Keep in mind that you are so much more than a collection of molecules, you are a gift with a purpose.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
