Looking forward. It's easier said than done sometimes but doing it is worth it. The reward is far greater when you stick to the path of achieving a goal. I've found myself getting overwhelmed the past few weeks and slowly find myself drifting farther and farther from focus. 33 weeks pregnant, five-sixths of the way finished with 21 college credit hours and working full time, and constantly thinking about so many things that still have to be done before our daughter makes her arrival. I'm here to tell you that not giving up is hard at times. Focus is lost sometimes and the thought of "giving up" on each goal is such an easy thought, but then I remind myself that the bigger picture is so much prettier than each single puzzle piece. I look forward to the arrival of my daughter, fighting fire again, finishing this semester, and next so I can graduate with my degree. All these things show me that all the simple things now are apart of a much bigger picture. I'm here to say don't give up, keep moving forward, see the long term goals for what they are worth not just the small stepping stones that get there. Sometimes the stepping stones get blurry and seem almost obsolete however the horizon is just ahead. Keep your dreams big, keep your head up. I want to be someone that somebody can look up to, and for that to happen you've got to be willing to fight the tough battles, pick yourself up after the hardest falls and move forward when its time to get things done. So let me close by saying there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

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.
