Have You Found Your Person?

Have You Found Your Person?

She's more than just your best friend, she's your sister.

Everybody "has a person." A term coined by none other than the "twisted sisters" Meredith Grey and Cristina Yang of ABC's "Grey's Anatomy," your "person" is much more than just some random human being. She is much more than someone you occasional keep in touch with, or someone you only reach out to when it's convenient for you. She is much more than just your friend, or even your best friend, but instead more like your sister. You may not have known her the longest out of all your friends, but you certainly know her the best. You probably don't always give your person the recognition they deserve, but deep down you know you'd go completely insane without them.

Dear "My Person,"

Congratulations! You've earned the prestigious title of being my person, and I'm sorry to break it to ya, but now you're stuck with me forever. Here's the thing: I didn't ask for you, I didn't see you coming, and looking back I'm not even sure when you actually became my person, but now when I look at my life, I couldn't imagine it without you.

I should probably tell you thank you for at least some of the things that I actually am so grateful to you for, but would never tell you in person. So thank you for being there for me through it all – the good, the bad, and the really ugly. When I've gone through some of my worst days, you were there. You didn't even have to say anything. I wasn't looking for some incredible pep talk or advice, but just you being by my side to lift me up at my weakest was all the help I needed. Thank you for continuing to stay my best friend even after you've seen how much of a weirdo I am (and you're welcome for staying your best friend once I found out that you're even weirder than me). Thank you for never leaving when everyone else has. Thank you for never judging me. Thank you for telling me what I needed to hear, even when I didn't want to hear it. Thank you for keeping me grounded. Thank you for being my other half, my best friend, my sister, my person.

Let me put the sappiest stuff aside for a minute and talk about a real struggle that I've discovered throughout the duration of you being my person: doing things without you really sucks, for a lack of better words. No matter what it is, you're always down to do the craziest things that any other person wouldn't even dare to do with me. You're my fun friend, my down-ass b*tch, literally my partner in crime. I'm pretty sure we'll be 80 years old, sitting in our rocking chairs, drinking a $15 case of Natty Ice, laughing at all of the dumb things we've done and wondering how we never spent the night in jail together because of them.

When it all comes down to it, no amount of words could describe the unique relationship that we have, which is what makes it so genuine, and no amount of "thank-yous" could describe how grateful I am to have a best friend like you. You're the Cristina to my Meredith, the lime to my tequila (or the lemonade to my blue UV), the Kourtney to my Khloe, the best to my friend. Thank you times a million for being my person.

Hate you sometimes. Love you always,

Your Person

Why Your Grandma Is Your Biggest Blessing In Life

Because nobody loves you more than she does.

There are many people in your life you are thankful for: Mom, Dad, siblings, cousins, best friends, teachers, neighbors, you name it. You are grateful to have people who constantly support you, who pick you up when you're down and love you unconditionally. But the one person who stands out among the rest of them is your grandma.

Ever since you were little, you and your grandma have always had a special connection. Going over to Grandma's house for the night was something you looked forward to. She knew how to entertain you at your best and worst moments. No matter what you did together, you loved it. Being with your grandma wasn't like being at home or with your parents – it was better. You went to the park, made cookies, went out to dinner, got a “sweet treat" at the mall, played Go Fish, took a bubble bath for as long as you wanted and got way too much dessert than you should have. You did things you weren't supposed to do, but Grandma didn't stop you. Because at Grandma's house there were no rules, and you didn't have to worry about a single thing. Being with Grandma was the true epitome of childhood. She let you be you. She always made sure you had the best time when you were with her, and she loved watching you grow up with a smile on your face.

The older you got, your weekend excursions with your grandma weren't as frequent, and you didn't get to see her as much. You became more and more busy with school, homework, clubs, sports, and friends. You made the most out of your time to see her, and you wished you could be with her more. Although you were in the prime of your life, she mattered even more to you the older you both became. You were with your friends 24/7, but you missed being with your grandma. When the time rolled around, and you got the chance to spend time with her, she told you never to apologize. She wanted you to go out, have fun and enjoy life the way it makes you happy.

Reflecting back on these moments with your grandma, you realize how truly special she is to you. There is no one who could ever compare to her nor will there ever be. All your life, there is no one who will be as sweet, as caring, as sincere or as genuine as her. Even though you're all grown up now, there are things about your grandma that never changed from when you were a kid. She still takes you out for your favorite meal because she knows how important eating out means to you. She writes you letters and sends you a $5 bill every now and then because she knows you're a hard-working college student with no money. She still helps you with all of your Christmas shopping because she knows it's your tradition. She still asks what's new with your young life because hearing about it makes her day and she still loves you to no end. Your grandma is your biggest blessing (whether you knew it or not), and she always will be no matter what.

I’m Christian And I Don’t Call Myself A Feminist But I Do Believe That Men And Women Are Equal, Just As It Should Be

I'll say it louder for the people in the back.


Recently there was an article published called, "I'm A Christian Girl And I'm Not A Feminist, Because God Did Not Intend For Women To Be Equals." While we are all subjected to our opinions, I have mine and I want to share it to show that just because you are a Christian, doesn't mean you can't be a feminist of some sort.

I am the type of girl that does not necessarily consider myself a feminist, but I am still all for supporting women. I think that men and women should be equal. I think men and women deserve equal opportunities, equal leadership roles, and equal pay. I do not think that men are necessarily superior to women. We are all human and we should all be treated EQUALLY.

I am a strong Christian and grew up going to church and lived in a Christian church my entire life. I love the Lord with everything I have and believe that everything in the Bible is true, but here is how I perceive the creation of women.

Yes, God created man first and then woman, and he created women out of the rib of a man. He created a woman for a man to have a companion because man could not live alone. In order to reproduce, woman had to be created.

So I'll say it again for the people in the back,

Men and women should be treated as EQUALS.

As a woman in the 21st century, I believe in working for my success and reaching my goals on my own, not because a man handed it to me. I believe that women should have equal opportunities as men.

When it comes to relationships however, I have more of a traditional perspective you could say.

I believe that men should pursue women when it comes to a romantic relationship, and I do believe that men should "wear the pants in a relationship" and be the head of the household. But, with that love in a relationship, there should be mutual respect and you should lift each other up and a man should support their woman in whatever she wants to do and the goals she is trying to reach.

Women should do the same, respect their husbands and support them in everything they do, because a relationship is a partnership.

So call it what you want, feminism or not, but I support women.

Everyone is allowed to have their own opinions, but this is mine, and I think that there are many other women out there who could agree.
