When you look in the mirror after a long night's rest, feeling as if you should be glowing from your preservation, but rather find a human face staring back at you- one with imperfections such as acne and bags under your eyes- please take the truth into consideration. The truth is, someone will love you, every imperfection included. How could someone ever get caught on a temporary breakout when you have the most beautiful eyes or the curliest locks?

When you step into the mist of a hot shower, and reveal your entire natural self, please take the truth into consideration. You are beautiful. Regardless of your skin color, hairstyle, weight, height, etc. Everyone has likes and dislikes about their own body, but all in all, we must take care of ourselves and love ourselves for who we are. So when you look down at your legs in the shower and notice a fresh bruise from walking into the end of your bed frame, instead of muttering "klutz...", laugh at your quirky self. Embrace your inner dork. One day you will find someone that will tease you for the ways you clumsily bump into obvious objects, but that person will also know what imperfections to not joke about. Someone will love the way your body curves and aligns. Someone will make sure you never go a day feeling undeserving of being called beautiful.

When you find yourself unable to find the perfect outfit to wear for the day, please take the truth into consideration. One day you will find someone that will view the clothes you wear as something that simply comforts you to the weather, or makes you feel more confident. Regardless if you feel as if a specific sweater fits you too tightly or has too many ruffles of loose fabric. Someone will love the way you find cozy warmth in your favorite robe. Someone will find beauty in the empowerment you feel when you put on your favorite little black dress.

When you give into the hunger, whether on time or in a rush, and go through the cupboards in search of something to eat, please take the truth into consideration. Treat yourself. Take your time. Sit yourself down to a nice breakfast and start the day off healthily. No counting the calories. No holding off until lunch. You will find someone that will find time to sit down to meals with you and make sure you have ate until you're full. You will find someone that will admire the ways you take care of yourself.

When you put on your funky jacket and boots, please take the truth into consideration. You will find someone that will adore the spunk and unique touches you put into yourself. Set your own trends. Who cares what others think about your thick heels or long coat? What you feel like you can rock, you can. Someone will admire the way you go about the day trying to be no one other than yourself.

When you get in the car on your way to school/work, please take the truth into consideration. You will find someone that will assure you to drive safely and set your phone aside. Put on your favorite music at a moderate volume, phone set aside, and eyes on the road. You have places to go and much yet to live. Your life and many others' are out on the roads. You will find someone that will ask if you got to your arrival safely and/or help you through rerouting your trip due to construction.

When you get to where you are going, in life that is, I hope that it is with the "someone" for you. You are deserving of love. You are deserving of care. You are deserving of so much more than you give yourself credit for.

So when your heart has found someone that makes life a lovely journey, supports you, encourages you, loves you, and takes care of you- don't let them go.

You are young. There is yet much time to allow things to work out. Be patient. What's meant to be will be.

Someone will be worth the wait. Meanwhile, love yourself and enhance your life to make your future even greater. In time we will gravitate towards those we love.

Someone will love your entire self and so should you.

I Woke up In The Middle Of The Night To Write About My Fears, They're Worse Than The Dark

One minute I'm thinking about what I want to do after college next thing I know I'm remembering the time I tried talking to a boy and choked on my spit.

It is one of those nights when I am tired, but for some reason, I can't seem to fall asleep. So, what do I do? I pull out my laptop, and I begin to write. Who knows where it will lead. It could lead to a killer article or something that does not make sense. I mean it is almost 2 A.M. In my mind, that's pretty late.

Anyways, let's do this thing.

Like many people, thoughts seem to pile up in my head at this time. It could be anything from a time when I was younger to embarrassing stories to wondering why I am "wasting" my time somewhere to thoughts about the future. All of these things come at me like a wildfire. One minute I'm thinking about what I want to do after college next thing I know I'm remembering the time I tried talking to a boy and choked on my spit.

The thought that is going through my mind as I write this is about the future. It's about the future of my fears. Let me explain. I have multiple fears. Some of my fears I can hide pretty well, others I am terrible at hiding. My fears may seem silly to some. While others might have the same fears. Shall we start?

1. My career

I don't know where to begin with this one. For as long as I can remember, my consistent dream job has been working in the world of sports, specifically hockey. A career in sports can be and is a challenging thing. The public eye is on you constantly. A poor trade choice? Fans are angry. Your team sucks? "Fans" are threatening to cheer for someone else if you can't get your sh*t together. You can be blamed for anything and everything. Whether you are the coach, general manager, owner, it does not matter. That's terrifying to me, but for some reason, I want to work for a team.

2. My family

Failing with my family, whether that be the family I was born into or my future family, it terrifies me. I have watched families around me fall apart and I have seen how it has affected them. Relationships have fallen apart because of it. I have heard people talk about how much they hate one of their parents because of what happened. I don't want that.

3. Time

This could be a dumb fear. I'm not sure, but I fear time. With every minute that passes, I am just another minute closer to the end. With every day that passes that I am not accomplishing goals or dreams I have, I am losing precious time. It scares me to think of something horrible like "What if I die tomorrow because of something horrific?" or even worse, "What if I don't make it through today?" It's terrible, I know.

4. Forgetting precious memories

When I was younger, I had brain surgery. It is now much harder for me to remember things. I am truly terrified that I am going to forget things I will want to hold close to me forever, but I won't be able to. I am scared I'll forget about the little things that mean a lot. I'm afraid of forgetting about old memories that may disappear. I'm worried that I'll forget about something like my wedding day. That might seem out of this world, but it's a reality for me.

5. Saying "goodbye"

I hate saying bye. It is one of my least favorite things. Saying bye, especially to people I don't know when I'll see again, is a stab in the heart for me. I love my people so much. I love being around them. I love laughing with them. Thought of never having a hello with them again scares me beyond belief.

6. Leaving places that I love

Alright, let me start off by saying this- it takes a lot for me to love a place. It has to feel like home. It has to make me feel comfortable. It has to be a place I can go to and be myself. Thankfully, I have had and still have multiple places that are like that. I have also had places I could not wait to leave. I think that's why leaving places I love is so hard and something I fear so much. I am afraid I'll never get that place "back", for lack of a better term. I guess, I'm trying to say, it's like a piece of me is leaving as well.




These six things are just the start of my fears. Some of these might seem "dumb" or "ridiculous" to you, but for me, it's my life. These are the things that I think about the most. These are the things that feel like a pit in my stomach. These six things are parts of my life that mean a lot to me.

Alone Time is Key

Take time to become the person we want to be.

Take time for yourself.

This one is so very important. I love being around people and being social, but lately (especially with people being gone from Statesboro) I've had time to spend alone. Now, for some people, this sounds sad, but it's so valuable. Last summer, I spent the whole time complaining that I had nothing to do and that it was so boring. God was giving me valuable time to spend in His word and really reflect on things and I just complained and threw it away. I've made it my mission that this summer will be different. For me, this means spending time in God's word when I seem to “not have time" at points during the school year and growing independently.

When we spend time alone we have time to think. There have been a few times when I've caught myself going all day without saying any words. Isn't that crazy? I'd just been thinking things and going about my day to myself. That's so strange for me because I am a bit of a talker, always love to start up conversations.

The one thing I've realized though is that if we don't know who we are apart from others then we will have nothing to contribute. If we base our identity solely on others and our relationships with them, then we have lost who we are completely. If we let other people define us, then we aren't us anymore. If that makes sense.

This goes for any type of relationship. A friendship, a relationship with a boyfriend, girlfriend, or spouse, or even within your family. We are our own individual people and we all have our own voice and part to play so we have to take the time to focus on that and pay attention to what makes us unique.

I think this summer is the best time for me to do this. Now, this might be easier for some than it is for others just given people's different family, friend and job situations. But I've started just taken time every morning to reflect on the day, what God wants from me during it, what I expect to be done, what I want to do and knowing what has to get done, all while reading my daily scripture and take time to “Be still." (Psalm 46:10)

Also, this is completely random and opposite of what this topic was about, but if you have a friend that you've just felt distant from lately or an old friendship that has fallen through, let them know that you still care about them and love them. I know they'll appreciate it more than you think. Life is simply too short to hold grudges and lose friendships, no matter what it is over.
