10 Reasons I love my Mom

10 Reasons I love my Mom
Screen Crush

1. My Closet

One of the reasons my mom and I are so close is because while I was growing up we went shopping all the time, and that did not change when I grew up. My mom still gives me advice on what to wear, what looks good, and she still occasionally picks clothes out for me. Over half of my closet is full of pieces my mom convinced me to buy.

2. Her Closet

My mom has the most impressive closet I have ever seen. Not only does she have great clothes but she has hundreds of necklaces to go with any outfit. And best of all, she is a valued customer at DSW and she always shares her account and her rewards points.

3. Advice

Most people would probably say this, but my mom gives the best advice. She always lets me vent to her and she helps and supports me through anything.

4. Unconditional love

I know that my mom would do anything for me and I know that she will love me no matter what. She has always told me that my best efforts are enough.

5. She taught me how to be selfless

My mom is one of the most generous people I know. She's always put her children above her own needs and wants.

6. A good work ethic

My mom taught me how to work hard by setting a good example. She has always worked hard at her job or achieving higher education, and I could not be more proud of her.

7. She cares more than anyone

My mom has always made sure that she was a very involved parent. While I was growing up she always knew where I was and who I was with. But she is also guilty of wearing mom-goggles and thinking that anything I do is the greatest thing ever. And she always reminds me that I would rather have a mom like her than a mom that wasn't interested in my life.

8. Her positivity is infectious

No matter what she smiles through it and always manages to build up her family. She always makes everyone around her feel great.

9. Her sense of humor

Not only do I think my mom is funny, but she passed on her sense of humor to me. We laugh at the same movies and TV shows and we always appreciate each others jokes.

10. I'm slowly turning into her, and she knows it

Every time I ask someone the same question multiple times, talk to the TV, realize I have a weird nervous habit, or start singing for no reason I blame her. But thankfully she doesn't mind. We just laugh because this is my fate and it can't be avoided.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
