Living Within My Own Little World

There's no place I'd rather be.

Living Within My Own Little World
Jenna Rutkey

There is a place I like to go; a place I call my own.

I place where I am whole and can cleanse my entire soul.

My own little world where every imperfection becomes perfection.

My own little world where the golden-brown wheat grass surrounds me, soaring high above my outstretched being.

Where the amber ocean envelopes my body and I can float away to another world as it ripples in the soft wind. It is silence, yet it is not.

A place full of peaceful serenity

Where I can lay back on the soft cloud and gaze up into the sky. Where a vast blue canvas expands from one end of the earth to the other and the wind whispers into my ears as the clouds form and drift away right before my eyes.

A world where I can close my eyes and stretch my arms out, allowing the warm spring sun to dance across my fair skin.

Where the prickly grass tickles me as it sways back and forth, playing its sweet song, releasing a beautiful scent.

In this place that I like to go; this place I call my own

This place where I am whole and can cleanse my entire soul

I am able to experience perfection

I am able to slowly open my eyes, sit up, and see a dandelion come into my view through the small slit between my heavy eyelids.

I am able to pick it up and admire it as it's gentle seeds begin to float away in the breeze.

I am able to I look up at my house standing far on the hill, cold and distant, with my wish in my hand and heart on my sleeve.

In my own little world, I can quietly blow the seeds away and make my final wish.

I wish for moments like this every day.

A never ending happiness.

I wish for a place where I can go to get away, knowing it will never be that white house with the picket fence standing high on the rolling green hills.

Mother nature is my safe place.

She is my own little world.

She embraces me with her warm touch and kisses me with her soft breeze.

Laying in the golden-brown wheat grass on a beautiful day where the sky appears as glass, letting my imagination wander and explore as it pleases.

Taking me on adventures to the wondrous unknown.

That is my happy place.

That is my safe place.

That is my own little world

And no one can take that away.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.


As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

I Got Clean At A Very Young Age, And It Honestly Saved My Life

At 18, the world looked so much different for me than it did for most other 18-year-olds that I knew.

Emmie Pombo

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.
