I Asked 17 Women What They Loved About Themselves Because It's Easy To Lose Sight Of What Makes You Awesome

It's easy to stand in front of the mirror and criticize every single perceived flaw. Maybe you think your eyes are too far apart, you think you have too much cellulite, or that you're too short or tall. Or, maybe you lie in bed and remember every single mistake you've ever made. It's easy to dwell on these things.

It's not often that we take the time to stop and think to ourselves about the things we love about ourselves. Maybe you love that your hair is naturally glossy or that your good at thinking on your feet. We don't often focus on the things we like about ourselves because we don't view them as needing "fixed". However, it is just as important to think about the things you love about yourself because if we dwell too much on our insecurities, we will lose sight of the truly important aspects of who we are.

Much of the media marketed to women feeds of off women's insecurities, with magazines choosing to photoshop models and the promotion of diet supplements and plans specifically to women. It's not hard to see how it's harder for women to find positive aspects of themselves when the media tells them they will never be good enough and a woman's intelligence is often dismissed and not compensated to the same extent as a man's.

With this in mind, I asked 17 women what they loved about themselves, here are their answers:

1. "My hands!"

2. "I have a great sense of humor lol"

3. "My ability to give and love unconditionally, no matter how many times I'm hurt. Don't now how or why I do it, but I do."

4. "I love how much I love band members lmao"

5. "My hands!" (again)

6. "My communication skills!"

7. "My hair"

8. "I love that I always try to empathize and be kind to people. Even when it's disadvantageous to myself or inconvenient." 

9. "I love that I give people the benefit of the doubt, until I can't anymore."

10. "I love that I am kind. It comes effortlessly and I love that I get to set that example." 

11. "I love that I'm dedicated to my goals. When I want something, I find a way to get it."

12. "I love that I can enjoy the small things in life. I also love that I can always see an issue from someone else's perspective."

13. "I'm smart and I'm strong-willed, but still able to change my mind about something if presented with reasonable evidence that contradicts my original thoughts." 

14. "I love that I'm compassionate and emotional. I love that I laugh easily and a lot. I'm a good teacher and make strong connections with my students. Also, I love my eyebrows."

15. "I love how I support my friends."

16. "I love my work ethic." 

17. "I love that I'm able to start getting commissions for my art."

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
