This world has so many amazing people, and you are one of them. Everyone has their struggles, some more than others, but you are strong enough to overcome them. You don't have to fight your battles alone. I refuse to imagine a tomorrow without you in it—betters days are ahead.

Here are 21 not-so-common quotes about choosing life that will hopefully encourage you to see another day:

1. "You will need other people and you will need to be that other person to someone else, a living, breathing, screaming invitation to believe better things."

2. "You've gotten through every bad day you didn't think you could get through."

3. "Your way out of the dark will light the way for others."

4. "The truth is: the space you occupy on this planet is space well-deserved."

5. "There are some days where life is just about putting one foot in front of the other. And that's okay."

6. "We are all in this together, shouting back at the darkness, a little louder each day."

7. "It's okay to be honest and it's okay to ask for help. It's simply part of being human." 

8. "There will certainly be days worse than these. But a beautiful truth remains-- there will be better days, too."

9. "It's possible to live with scars, to feel the same pain you feel right now and to not hurt yourself because of it."

10. "If you're feeling alone, know that the world can be a lonely place. But it would be lonlier without you in it."

11. "Give yourself the opportunity of seeing what a year from now holds.Take a chance on yourself and choose to stay."

12. "I promise you, those thoughts of people not loving you or wanting you be with you are a lie."

13. "Please stay alive. For every future joy. For the next album you're going to love. For the best concert you haven't been to yet. For your wedding or your husband or your wife. For the kids you have or dream of having. Please stay alive to be surprised, by love and hope and help."

14. "You are not the heaviness sitting inside of you. You are not the battlefield where the bodies fall, and you are not the sound of cannons breaking the sky open. You are what happens after the war. The surviving. The healing. The recovering." 

15. "Free yourself from the idea that you aren't worthy of other people's time."

16. "On the days when life pushes me around, I will dig my heels in, reach for my strength, and choose to fight back."

17. "You belong in the light, and you can get there again. Don't believe anyone who tells you differently."

18. "You will shake in your skin. You will be more terrified than you have ever been. But you will be brave, and you will be okay."

19. "But while your heart has been broken and scarred, it is still beating."

20. "So what's next? You heal, you grow, and you help others."

21. "The most important part in recovery is taking the power back and allowing yourself to believe you deserve to win."

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because Those Hormones Aren't Gonna Balance Themselves

Your weekly wellness boost from Odyssey.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

It's common knowledge that your hormones impact practically every aspect of your body. Weight gain, acne, mental health... it's all related to your hormonal health. If your life is treating your body like the superstar it is, your endocrine glands should produce the perfect amount of each hormone to keep you running like a well-oiled machine. This is a nice thought, sure. In our current society, even the most balanced person you know may be missing an important aspect of respecting their body. Things like sleep, stress, diet, exercise, and a busy pace of life can throw hormones off balance and negatively impact your general wellbeing. Sometimes these imbalances are noticed right away, while other times they can be smaller — annoying, but not as obvious.

One of the biggest discomforts I initially had with the stay-at-home order was feeling trapped and isolated from what was going on outside the walls of my house. Add that to living in a massive city, where social distancing is nearly impossible when doing something as simple as walking down the street.
