My New Life Motto: Que Sera, Sera

Whatever will be, will be.


Everyone gets to the point in life sometimes where you just feel so overwhelmed with everything that is happening. Yes, we would all love to control the future instead of having fate create it. However, we can't control what will happen. We can hope and dream of an ideal world where everything goes according to plan, but when we start expecting certain outcomes, that's when we get crushed. This is why I have decided to live by my new life motto: "Que sera, sera".

This means, "What will be, will be". We can't change fate, but we can go along with it. Whatever will happen is going to happen whether we like it or not. The outcomes of actions are not for us to decide. Sometimes we just have to go with the flow and be flexible while also realizing that perhaps there is a reason beyond us as to why everything happens. This all goes along with my philosophy that everything happens for a reason.

And yes, it's hard to put your faith and trust into the universe while hoping for something, and trying not to expect it. It honestly is brutal and it can mentally be exhausting. But contrary to what your mind may be telling you, the universe is not out to get you (at least I hope not). We just need to believe that everything will work out; everything will be what it will be. And if things don't go how you were planning, then sometimes you just need to take a step back and remind yourself that perhaps there is a reason, maybe one you don't understand, but there is a reason why things end up the way they do.

So, for the time being, take a deep breath and just relax. Do the best you can to get the outcome you want, but please don't stress and lose sleep over something you can't change. I once read somewhere that if you're freaking out about an issue, ask yourself a simple question? Is there something I can do to change the situation I am worrying about? If the answer is yes, then go ahead and change what you can. If the answer is no, then realize there is nothing that can be done and worrying at this point won't change anything.

All that's left to do is realize that what will be, simply will be. Que sera, sera.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

Naya Rivera Is Missing, And She Deserves SO Much More Than Being Labeled 'Big Sean's' Ex'

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

Naya's son's name is Lord and the entire collective is hoping the Lord is with him right now. I'm a firm believer in the Fear of God, I hope all of Naya's love is protecting Lord right now.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
