A Letter To The Future Me

A Letter To The Future Me

The past me needs to help out the future me.


Dear future me,

Mistakes happen, regrets happen, disappointments happen, heartbreaks happen, and etc...all those happen. And I want you to know that it's okay to not be like how you used to be. It's okay to change your lifestyle. It's okay to become a better person. You don't have to feel like you need to be someone that you used to be. You don't need to love things that you once loved. You don't need to have people in your life that are filled with negativity. It's okay to let people go. And it's okay to move on from them. You don't need to feel like you need to be with someone just because you're comfortable with them. It's okay to get out of your comfort zone and discover new things. You need to be aware that people change and sometimes aren't meant to be in your life anymore and it's okay if they leave their mark in your life and then decide to leave.

Sometimes things just happen that you just can't explain. Sometimes you need to remember that there just aren't answers to everything. You have to remember that sometimes it's okay to let go of little things, I understand little things can add up to big things, but you must know that sometimes you just need to choose which battle to take on. You don't have to be right about everything. It's okay to feel the way you feel, but sometimes you just need to take a breather and try to rationalize things before saying something automatically.

Not everyone needs to know everything you've been through, sometimes it's okay to sit back and not say anything. Try to stay out of drama. You will just stress and it usually is stupid. I know when you're going to bed you think of every single thing you did that day or what you did in the past, but please just try not to think too hard about things, sometimes thinking too much about something causes stress and mentally and emotionally strains you. It's okay. You don't have to remember everything about the past and you don't have to press about things, just try to let things go.

Remember, in order to let things go you must forgive and in order to forgive you have to stop hurting from the same reoccurring thoughts/feelings you've had. You don't have to remember everytime you felt hurt, it's okay to remember being happy too. It's okay to smile, to laugh, and to make new memories. You don't need to feel like you can't, you can. You can do anything you set your mind to. You're motivated and determined that's what makes you, you. Just promise me that you won't stop loving yourself, that you will keep yourself a priority. It's okay to love someone else, but you don't have to lose yourself in the process.

Don't let the past you define the future you.

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.
