I Manifested My Dream Life In To My Reality This Month — Here's How You Can, Too
Kate Maddox

I have always been a happy person.

On the daily, you can find me laughing at literally nothing or struggling to tell a story because I can not stop laughing. I find joy in the people I surround myself with and the activities that keep me busy.

I find joy in food that gives me nourishment and my opportunities that allow me to travel near and far. Of course, there are days that I break down and cry (I am a big crier), but usually, people do not see this side of me. All in all, I am a happy person.

However, I have been in a rut lately.

In other words, I feel like something is missing in my life. It is so hard to put into words because I have never felt this way before. When I am with the people I enjoy being around, I am my normal self; bouncing off of everyone's energy. But when I am alone, I feel lost.

I have always enjoyed alone time because it allows me to focus on what I want to do, whether that be relaxing, reading a book, watching a movie, etc. Lately, though, I have been using my alone time stuck on social media looking at things that I do not have.

This list of things is composed of various standards that I know should not matter to me.

Of course, this is very common for young adults, especially girls, to compare themselves to others. However, this has never been something that I have really cared about until now. It has come to a point where I have started to invest my time in obsessing over these standards.

It wasn't until a close friend came to me to express her concerns when I realized how unhappy I have been lately. Disclaimer: this is not a cry for help. This is just me explaining how I came to realize how I was treating myself and my need to change.

If you do not like the life you're living; then change it.

OK, so obviously I want to get out of this funk. I want to feel like myself again. This is where I got my sign. I was on TikTok one day (shocker) and I came across this beautiful video of New York City with music playing in the background. The words on the screen read "visualization for manifestation".

The video told me to imagine the moment where I have finally moved to the city, started that thing and found that person.

I closed my eyes and followed the video and immediately started crying. It was just so beautiful how in between frog TikTok and the newest dance moves I had found this video that really allowed me to just breathe.

I immediately followed the account, which is @astoldbyzozo. I started to look through and found other videos depicting different places and different visualizations. I soon came to realize that her account is all about manifesting your life. My first thought was, "What in the world is manifestation?" It sounded like some witchcraft to me and honestly very difficult.

Manifestation is believing your dreams can become your reality and then making that happen in various ways.

I immediately became hooked on this manifestation idea. I have so many dreams, but I have lacked the energy to put them in motion. I decided right then and there that I wanted to try manifesting my life.

Zozo, who is 23 and lives in New York City, shared her story on how she manifested her dreams to become who she is now.

She has a guide on how to manifest your dream life and all I had to do was sign up to receive the guide. I have decided to spend every day of July using Zozo's guide to practice manifesting my life. I am always up for something that will change my way of thinking or will allow me to set aside time in my day to really reflect.

However, I feel like this is something that will become an everyday thing. I am really excited about this and will make sure to share my journey at the end of July.

This is for the person who is also unsure of what they are doing right now.

Don't worry. You will get out of this funk. You will find your passion again. Maybe this is your sign to try something new. Maybe this is your sign to hop on the manifestation journey with me.

All I am saying is that you deserve to strive for your dreams. I am here for you and supporting you through your journey of finding yourself again. Let's do this together.

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.

In the midst of all of the amazing statistics and records that these players are breaking, though, we also just love the NBA because well, there are some pretty good looking guys out there. Here are the 19 hottest NBA players (in no particular order) you would totally let slam dunk on you now that the NBA has returned.

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.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get. Through all the break-ups, obstacles, and struggles in our love lives, romantic comedies have always been there to make us laugh and keep us company while we cry.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember. Although rom-coms are far from reality, it is always fun to imagine what our life would be like if a cinematic studio was behind our love life. So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).
