Letting Go Is Good

Sometimes you have to let go to be happy even if it's hard

Letting Go Is Good

“We can't be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don't have something better.”

― C. JoyBell C.

Let me just start off by saying that I bet there isn't a single soul on this planet that wouldn't agree that change is good. That sometimes change can be refreshinging. Or that change is the reason why they are happier. Sometimes change involves letting go. Also sometimes we have to let go of whats killing us, even if it's killing us to let go! Believe me when I say it's hard, but it also does get easier with time. I was never a big fan of letting go because I feared the pain that would usually follow shortly after. Wether it be letting go of a job, friendship, or a relationship. Sometimes you have to get up and face your fears no matter if it hurts you and the other people invovled.

I recently let go of a relationship that almost lasted 3 years. Now thats a long time. That's alot of dates, alot of family holidays, and alot of road trips to let go of. Alot of good morning hugs, kisses, and goodbyes. When I tell you it hurt, believe me it hurt so bad. Sometimes letting go of someone you love is the hardest. At the same time though letting go might make you happier. That's just it though, life is all about your happiness, your wealth, and the way you view things. If you base yourself off of others happiness, what does that do for you. Nothing, absolutley nothing. Believe me when I tell you, you need to focus on yourself first before anyone or anything else. Be young, have fun, make mistakes, and if you find your happiness along the way then that's amazing.

Sometimes all you really need in life is a fresh start. Take the step and change if you are not happy the way you are, you'll see a big difference in your life. The sun will begin to shine a little brighter, the grass will appear a little more greener, and your obstacles become less harder to achieve. You'll wake up and smell the flowers like you've never smelt them before, and the fresh air will seem a little fresher. When you're happy all the things that once seemed dark and gloomy are now bright and cheery. Change yourself for the better and be a happier person. Life is so much better on the sunny side.

Falling For Fall

Super Cute Home Decor and Food Ideas for the Autumn Season.

Jamie Cahoon

I don't know about you but Autumn is my favorite season of the year. The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and tops of the mountains begin to be sprinkled with snow. Being as I'm not Haloween's biggest fan, I love to decorate my home with super cute fall decorations. I have found 11 of the cutest DIY decor items that are both inexpensive and adorable. Ballin' on a college kids budget makes for fun craft nights instead of buying the items at a ridiculous mass produced price.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.
