Everyone has a favorite color. If you're like me, your favorite color has changed many times throughout your life. The colors your like actually say a lot about you and your personality. What does yours say about you?

1. Red

You're very emotional. You have power and a strong determination. Passion drives your actions. Your energy creates a fun loving personality that attracts the people around you. This makes friendships very easy for you.

2. Orange

You exude encouragement and enthusiasm! You are more extroverted and are very good at social communication. You're very young and adventurous at heart.

3. Yellow

You're a very happy person. You tend to have a very bubbly personality. Yellow means you have a high intellect and it's easy for you to take a step back. Because of this, you can be overly critical sometimes. You have lots of energy and are very optimistic. This all together means you have a youthful soul.

4. Green

You're all about personal growth and ambition! Balance is very important to you. You are often the mediator between family and friends because you're very grounded and positive!

5. Blue

Just like this color, you're very bold. You are loyal and communicative. People see you as trustworthy and they know they can come to you. You have integrity and confidence.

6. Purple

You are very creative! Purple means you tend to be introverted and emotionally balanced. You're calm and in tune with your spirituality. You overall have a very balanced outlook on life.

7. Pink

You have a bright and fun personality! You can be overly optimistic, at times, unrealistic. You have nurturing tendencies. You can be very sentimental but sometimes immature.

My favorite color has changed as I've grown up and so has my personality. Colors mean more than just preference. They are a window to that person and who they are. Check your friends and family's favorites and see how their color matches their personality.

I Drank Lemon Water For A Week And Here's What Happened

It has already changed my life.

There are so many health crazes out there now, it's hard to tell what actually works and what doesn't; or more importantly what is healthy and what is making your body worse. I read about simply drinking lemon water and I figured that didn't sound gross or bad for me so I figured I would give it a try. I've been drinking it consistently for a week and a half and I already notice some results.

I've never been a fan of lemon in my water, I always refuse it at restaurants. You definitely have to find your sweet spot in lemon to water ratio, in what tastes good to you. I personally cut the lemon into quarters and use on quarter per day. I put the lemon quarter in the bottle and then continuously fill with water throughout the day. I still get the yummy lemon flavor all day because I do not squeeze the lemon. It took about a bottle or two to get used to the lemon flavor, and now I just crave it.

Lemon water is supposed to speed up your metabolism. Obviously, a week is not long enough to tell if this is fact or fiction but I have noticed a change in appetite. I feel like I do not get hungry as often as I did before. I saw this effect within 24-48 hours of starting the experiment. This seems opposite to a fast metabolism but we'll see.

I definitely feel more hydrated with lemon water. I drink a lot of water anyways, about 80 oz a day but for some reason with the lemon, it makes me feel better. I don't feel as sluggish, I'm not getting hot as easily, and my skin feels amazing. I am slightly skeptical though because the lemon almost makes my tongue dry requiring me to drink more water, so I have upped my intake by about 20oz. I'm unsure if the hydration is due to the extra water, the lemon, or both!

My face is clearing up and feels so much softer too, in only a week! I have not gotten a new pimple since I have started my lemon water kick, may be coincidence but I'm not going to argue with it.

I also feel skinnier as I feel like I'm not holding as much water weight. I only exercise lightly, for the most part, walking around a mile or two a day so we can eliminate exercise factor to the slender feeling.

I have a messy stomach. Everything upsets it, and even though lemons are very acidic, they have not affected me in a negative way at all. It almost seems like the lemon water is helping me digest the difficult foods that my stomach doesn't like. I'm nowhere near a doctor so don't trust my word but it seems to be working for me.

From the effects I've felt so far, it also seems like lemon water may be a great hangover cure! I haven't tried it but I don't see why it wouldn't work. I can't say a negative thing about drinking lemon water so far expect you have to buy the lemons! If you try this for yourself though just make sure you are using an enamel saving mouthwash or toothpaste since lemons aren't so great for your teeth.

I Am A Busy Girl Learning That I Need To Start Making Myself A Priority

You have to be strong enough to fight your own battles before you can try to save the world.

You could be thinking, since when is it so bad to be selfless compared to selfish?

It isn't. And I've always chosen to live my life that way.

The raw, disgusting truth is living a selfless life is not as admirable as you'd think. Recently, I have had multiple people in my life point out to me my lack of ability to say "no" to people. I am constantly willing to change my schedule, drive the extra thirty miles and be as accommodating as I possibly can to help others. I'd come to work on my day offs to help my manager or ditch my lunch break to meet with someone to help them out. It came naturally to me to think with the mindset of how can I help someone's day be easier, but I forgot to think about myself.

There's a lovely saying that goes, "The only person you can rely on is yourself" but I'm starting to learn the truth of it after all.

I don't think it's as dark of a reality as we proceed it to be, either. It's actually saying, at the end of the day, you're all you got. You can give your heart to strangers and sell your soul to save another, but that doesn't mean people will do the same for you.

I have always been afraid of disappointing people so I give them everything I have. I am not afraid to pull my weight and more in a group or relational setting in order to keep the peace. It was a reward for people to acknowledge that, but a pat on the back wasn't going to cut it anymore. I wasn't happy with who I was while I was trying to make everyone else happy. And there was something very wrong in that, but I chose to ignore it.

But people don't always think the same way you do, it's the beauty of humanity. We meet people who challenge us, shape us and change us. These people can also destroy us as fast as they built us up, and are you happy with who you are when you're standing alone? Are you happy with the things you've done or given up when there is nobody else there anymore?

This is a tough lesson to learn if you've lived a life like mine.

A life where you thought you were doing nothing but good, but the way you treated yourself was bad.

While I will never give up my ways and suddenly change how my brain is wired, but I am more self-aware of who I need to be as a person before I can continue to give myself to others. I will never truly be the person can think of themselves before considering other people involved, but self-awareness of my own mental and physical health is an important factor.

You can't love others until you love yourself.

You also can't help others until you help yourself. Because if you can't fight your own battles, how are you supposed to save the world?
