A Letter To My 5 Year Old Self

Stay forever young.

A Letter To My 5 Year Old Self
Kidcessory Haven

Hello dear,

It's me. Just future me. There is so much I want to tell you, but I can't wait for you to find it out on your own as well.

Life is going to get hard, but that is okay. You stay in that bubble that you are in right now. Never stop believing in magic and miracles. Never let anyone tell you that you can't do something, because they will.

Throughout your life, people are going to want to bring you down. They will lie to you and hurt you. They will try to make you feel less than you are, but stay strong. Stay independent. Stay happy, at least as much as you can.

You are going to have hard days. You are going to have days where you don't want to get out of bed. That is okay. On those days; just stay in bed. Watch some Netflix, read a book, take a nap, its okay to have bad days. Just don't make them your life.

Lets talk about your parents for a moment. They are going to hurt you and they will disappoint you. Not going to lie, its going to suck. The two people who you came into this world trusting more than anything are going to let you down. This is going to teach you to forgive. You have no choice but to give your parents for everything, because you love them. Even when they hurt you.

In not too long you are going to have a little sister. I know you have mixed feelings about this, but she's going to belong to you. Take care of her. Look out for her. Show her that you love her, even when you don't like her. Just let her play with you and your friends, she will get bored shortly anyways. One day, it is going to be the two of you against the world, and you are going to want her support for that. Just remember, you do love her. Even when she throws her shoes at you.

Lets move up about 10 years when boys start to actually matter. Whatever you do, don't trust that boy on the football team, trust me. Actually, don't trust most boys. You will, however, one day, find a boy who loves you and treats you like a princess. That is the boy who you want in your life forever. It is okay to be scared when you do find him. Commitment and trust are hard things, especially with a boy; but one day you will realize this is what you've been waiting for. I hope you do find that kind of love.

Now your future. This is going to be tricky because I am still figuring it out. All i can say is, don't stress. Live a free life where you want to travel and be yourself. Don't let boys or family or friends distract you from what is important. Especially don't let society tell you who you need to be. Just be you. Be your little happy, bubbly self.

I hope that you remember what you felt at five years old. That joy and love that you feel. Don't ever lose your hope and imagination. Don't ever grow up.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
