I'll Be Someone's Everything One Day, But Today, I'm Everything To Myself

Time is the only way of showing us what really matters.

I'll Be Someone's Everything One Day, But Today, I'm Everything To Myself
Lexi Schroeder

I'd consider myself a lover.

I love the feeling of having a significant other I can count on. I'm a very independent person, but it's nice to know you have someone you can send a text to or call to come over when you're feeling down or simply just want to lie in bed and watch a movie with.

Although, lately, I've been trying to figure out what's right for me regarding love/dating people. I've been in two serious relationships, one in high school and one almost a year ago. My first one lasted a year and 11 months and my last one was a year and six months. If I'm being 100 percent honest, in my last serious one, I thought that was it. I really did picture myself with him for the rest of my life.

I was happy, enjoyed being with him, and loved showing him off.

Ultimately, we didn't work out and things ended. I truly experienced the worst heartbreak of my life. Fast forward ten months and here I am still single and living a great life.

I tried a relationship a few months back because I felt like I was longing for one. I realized I wasn't all in and I wasn't as into him as I thought. We ended things after a month and that's when I became aware that I can't rush things and the next relationship I'll be in must be with someone I can give my all to.

Since my breakup last May, I've had points where I thought I maybe have met my next boyfriend.

But unfortunately, those ended in my heart being broken once again because they were either not ready for something or we simply didn't communicate what we wanted.

I'm only 21 years old and have my whole life to find someone. I've come to terms that the best things in life happen unexpectedly... so I've had to convince myself to not get my hopes up even though it's hard. Some could say I'm living my best life right now and to an extent, I agree.

Someday, I'll be able to share my success and happiness with someone who's invested in me just as much as I'm invested in them.

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
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).

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.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
