25 Things I Need To Remind Myself More Often

It's important to love yourself just as much as you love others

25 Things I Need To Remind Myself More Often

I have always had an open heart and mind. Something I take great pride in is my constant necessity to be kind to others around me. This could either be through consistently giving the best advice to the people around me, or just being a listening ear to those who may be struggling and are due for a good venting session.

Nevertheless, I have always taken pride in my ability to lift others up when they are feeling down. I love to help out others in any way I can.

However, sometimes I forget about myself and how I am feeling. I forget to give myself the same pieces of advice when I am struggling, and I forget to actually listen to my own words of wisdom. I give and I give to other people, but forget to give back to myself.

25 things I constantly need to remind myself of are...

1. You are smarter than you think

2. Not only are you smart, but you are strong!

3. Be confident, you can do anything you set your mind to.

4. Stop doubting yourself so much, you can accomplish anything

5. It's OK to treat yourself every once and a while

6. You do not need 20LBS of make up to look beautiful

7. You are always good enough 

8. Stop going back to people in your past who hurt you 

9. You do not need to rely on others for anything

10. It is OK to ask for help sometimes

11. Unfortunately, you are not superwoman, you can't fix everyones problems 

12. Live a little more

13. Say yes to new opportunities out of your comfort zone

14. Self-care is important, do a face mask at least once a week!

15. You do not have to have it all together at every second of the day 

16. Girl, take more naps. You are running yourself exhausted

17. Don't take the people in your life for granted.

18. You are never alone

19. Listen to other people's advice

20. ALWAYS trust your gut instinct

21. Stick up for yourself no matter what

22. Stop letting people take advantage of you 

23. Don't let someone walk all over you for being too nice 

24. Give yourself more time to study 

25. Love yourself more

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead

Everyone needs a day to themselves sometimes.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

On Sunday Morning

Breaking Free

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.
