To The Girl Who Is Showing Up For Herself

"Happiness is an inside job. Don't assign anyone else that much power over your life." - Mandy Hale

To The Girl Who Is Showing Up For Herself

I know you're broken down and tired, it feels as if you live life on a merry-go-round.

You've spent the majority of your life searching, when all you've ever wanted is to be found.

You've given your heart away as if it's not a prize to be won,

Hoping and praying that a love would come along and have the pain be undone.

You've had your trust broken and soul shattered more times than you're happy to admit,

And after the previous attempt, all you want to do now is give up and quit.

I understand that after all you've been through, you might want to just keep to yourself.

The result of that? You'd be putting your life up high on top of a very tall shelf.

Unreachable, untouchable by anyone who comes near, all because of everything you've grown to fear.


Because some lost soul manipulated you and told you lies?

Because someone projected their insecurities on to you, that were never yours to own?

Well, I'm here to tell you what's true and help you get back on to your thrown:

Your time is coming, and all your puzzle pieces are about to fit.

You've got courage, tenacity and a hell of a lot of grit.

While the world made it's efforts to bring your to your knees and tear you down once again,

You now stand up and look them in the eyes and say, "No, this is where my life truly begins."

Your dreams and goals have been placed in your life for a reason,

Never give those up just because it's been a tough season.

Grandma said it best, "I'm so proud of you - you're going to do great things in life."

You have your days where you wake up and don't have it in you, but this is the time where you push through and fight.

Some are expecting you to crumble and fall,

So get up, brush it off and make them regret ever doubting you at all.

Where rejection and failure were your biggest fret, now the only thing you fear is not taking the risk and having regret.

You deserve all the beautiful things that life has to offer, I know you used to think differently --- that you were just a bother.

But let me continue to tell you more:

You, my girl, are something so special to adore.

You are not emotionally weak.

You have a pure heart that someone, someday, will be so lucky to keep.

But for now, stay true to who you are and remain strong, because the right person will come along.

You realized, though, that isn't the goal of your life anymore.

No more trying to be the "perfect person," just to then be washed up on to the shore.

Your goal now is to love yourself and fill your own cup, and surround yourself with people who only lift you up.

Fall in love with yourself and the way that your thighs touch.

Count to three, kiss the guy and don't be afraid to open up.

Take your solo trip, buy the puppy and move into your own space.

Be everything you are and give extra love the broken pieces that other's would refuse to embrace.

Where you used to hide behind a pain filled mask for protection and disguise,

Now, my girl, it's time for you to rise.

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
