Going into this new semester with a whole new mindset, I wanted to find quotes that I knew would help encourage me. I have recently seen quotes all over instagram with the cutest and most creative designs. I noticed they are all by Morgan Harper Nichols, a christian songwriter/artist. All of the quotes I have chosen are her pieces.

"How beautifully you are learning the art of surrender, the courage to let go, in the wind of your unknowns." -MHN

So many changes have occurred from last semester to second, I can not wait to have the past behind me.

"You are different now, and that is a beautiful thing, and all of this is a part of the journey of becoming who you were meant to be."- Morgan Harper Nichols

New year, new mindset.

"It's okay if not every weekend doesn't lead to big moments and campfires and laughter that carries on for hours and hours. Some weekends might be quiet, still, with plenty of room to contemplate, and in that contemplation room, there is room to grow. So hold those weekends dear. Don't see them as less or as threats to more exciting times. There is beauty and truth even in the seemingly mundane." - Morgan Harper Nichols

Sometimes we need some quiet time to reflect.

"Breathe... Take air into your lungs. Be reminded of His love. Breathe it out. Let it go." - MHN

Even on rough days, it's a blessing to have the ability to breathe in air into your lungs and know there is Someone greater than you.

"One day you will look back on this season and know that you are truly blessed, and not because things were perfect but because you found the perfect grace in the worst of it."- Morgan Harper Nichols

The 'AH HA' moment

"The unknowns have no end, but neither does His grace." - MHN

The fear of the unknown is real... But I do not have to question his love for me and YOU.

"Morning is here, the day is new, perhaps this is where The Light breaks through." - Morgan Harper Nichols

It's never too late to be brand new!!

"If you ever feel the world around you is too busy to notice you, may you always be the one brave enough to stop and notice the world." MHN

Sometimes we get so caught up in ourselves that we forget there are other people in this world too.. Someone always has it worse than you.. Be conscious of those around you!

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
