You Were Made For So Much More, I Promise

I know it doesn't always seem like it, but I PROMISE you are.

You Were Made For So Much More, I Promise
Katelyn McKinney

How do I get it across to you that you were made for more? I am not there with you in person, and I don't know your whole life story. But the thing is, I don't have to. I know without a shadow of a doubt, no matter where you are in life, you were made for more.

It is so easy to get caught up in doing the same things over and over again. And half the time, we don't even know why we are still doing them. Maybe it's your job. You completely hate it, and waking up every morning seems like a task. You drag your feet all while wishing you could be doing something different. I am here to tell you that YOU get to choose if you stay at that job. No one is forcing you to go to work there. If you hate your job, then quit it. Go do something that gives you joy; go pursue something that you have a burning passion for. If you want to do something else, you can make it work so that you can do it.

Choose your happiness, and stop doing things that don't make you happy. You were made to experience love and joy. You were not meant to dread every single day over a job that you, here it is, don't even HAVE to do. Yeah, you need to get paid, but you can get paid to do something else. Opportunities are endless nowadays.

Let's also say you have a bad habit, whether it be smoking, eating unhealthy, looking at your phone too much, taking too many naps, filling your mind with unhealthy things, etc. That habit does NOT define you. It is not just "something you do" and probably will never stop doing — that is completely your choice. You have the power to stop doing it and pick up a better habit.

I struggled with looking at my phone too much. Every two minutes I would check my lock screen or get on social media. When you get on social media, it is hard to make it short because you just start scrolling, and five minutes turns into 20. I noticed my bad habit and decided that it needed to stop. It took a while, but eventually, I was able to train myself to realize that I can live without my phone. Now because of that change in habit, I can do more with my life. I can read my Bible, clean up, bake something yummy and just flat out enjoy the life God gave me. I was made for more than having my face in my phone, and you were too. Whatever your bad habit is, you can change it.

Have you ever felt stuck? Like you aren't going anywhere, but it seems like everyone else is? It is because you are not allowing yourself to move. You were made for more than where you are right now. You were made to be a light, to reach others, to help others, to run that marathon, start that business, lose that weight, chase that dream and conquer the world (figuratively, not literally — then I would be supporting world domination).

You, yes YOU, were made for so much more.

Stop telling yourself that you aren't and that your life will never be any different from what it is now. That is the lamest thing I've ever heard! Go chase your dream. Go live your best life. If that means quitting your job, quit it. If that means losing 10 pounds, lose it. If that means stepping out of your comfort zone, do it. GO DO IT. I can't stress enough how much you are in control of your own life. God intended for you to live your life, so go live it. Stop watching everyone else live theirs. You were made for so much more.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
