Remember That You Have The Strength To Grow Through What You Go Through

Everything happens for a reason, and sometimes that reason is a tremendous life lesson.

Remember That You Have The Strength To Grow Through What You Go Through

Throughout your life, you are going to be faced with roadblocks. Whether they are minor or major, these blocks can feel overpowering. These encounters feel impossible to overcome and they can give you a sense of feeling stuck.

During these setbacks, you may feel like you have been defeated. However, these upsets are actually a blessing in disguise. When you deal with a troubling matter, you get to learn something new about yourself.

Perhaps you will even learn a small personal characteristic or a big realization about who you actually are.

For me, I would not change a single thing about my life. I am truly grateful for everything that I have gone through, especially the roadblocks. Without the struggles, I would not be the person I am today.

The troubling situations and circumstances that have crossed my path in the past have all taught me important life lessons. I have learned about strength, responsibility, rage, hatred, joy, courage, and hundreds of other important life aspects.

Without going through the difficult times, I would have never gained this special and important knowledge on these topics.

It may seem like the difficulties you face are all evil, but I have learned to look for the light in the darkness. When you are going through a difficult time, you should try to find the good in the bad. Sprint to the light at the end of the tunnel, because when you reach it, you will feel unstoppable.

In order to get this mindset, I encourage you to step out of your current views. If you feel like life is constantly dragging you and throwing you in awful situations, then it is time to realize that life is hard. Your life is a long journey, and you are going to be the only person that will be on the entire trip.

There are going to be times when your tough journey seems like it will never end, but it will. You can defeat anything that is trying to stop you.

Once you set your mind to something, you can't be stopped. Nothing can hold you back. Not one single thing.

Every person on this Earth goes through different things. You can't compare your chapter one to someone else's chapter five. It simply doesn't work like that.

You have this life for a reason, so find that reason. Why are you here? What is your purpose?

The answers to these questions are going to be found when you least expect it. Usually, they are found in the worst times of your life. This is why finding that light in the pitch black is important. There is always going to be something that is brilliantly bright.

The good is going to be the wisdom you gain from your experiences. There is always going to be at least one thing to learn from the blackness.

In the end, you grow through what you go through. I want you to remember that.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

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.
