Why hello again, it's me, ya girl.

I am in one of those moods to listen to a bunch of different music because ~seasons are changing folks~.

I've also been listening to a lot of One Direction right now so enjoy seeing them a few times on here.

I also have a whole lot of throwback jams and by throwback jams I mean stuff from like 2008.

I am very tired.

My friend (shoutout to Mari-Ellin) suggested I put September by Earth, Wind, and Fire in this but that's too basic, right?

Enjoy I guess.

A french bop. The french Despacito if you will.

PSA: Keep Your Body-Negative Opinions Away From Little Girls This Summer

But our own baggage shouldn't be shoved on to those we surround ourselves with.

It's officially swimsuit season, y'all.

The temperature is rising, the sun is bright and shining, and a trip to the beach couldn't look more appealing than it does right now. This is the time of year that many of us have been rather impatiently waiting for. It's also the time of year that a lot of us feel our most self-conscious.

I could take the time to remind you that every body is a bikini body. I could type out how everyone is stunning in their own unique way and that no one should feel the need to conform to a certain standard of beauty to feel beautiful, male or female. I could sit here and tell you that the measurement of your waistline is not a reflection of your worth. I completely believe every single one of these things.

Hell, I've shared these exact thoughts more times than I can count. This time around, however, I'm not going to say all these things. Instead, I'm begging you to push your insecurities to the side and fake some confidence in yourself when you're in front of others.

Why?

Because our negative self-image is toxic and contagious and we're spreading this negative thinking on to others.

We're all guilty of this, we're with family or a friend and we make a nasty comment about some aspect of our appearance, not even giving a single thought to the impact our words have on the person with us. You might think that it shouldn't bother them- after all, we're not saying anything bad about them! We're just expressing our feelings about something we dislike about ourselves. While I agree that having conversations about our insecurities and feelings are important for our mental and emotional health, there is a proper and improper way of doing it. An open conversation can leave room for growth, acceptance, understanding, and healing. Making a rude or disheartening remark about yourself is destructive not only to yourself, but it will make the person you are saying these things around question their own self worth or body image by comparing themselves to you.

My little sister thinks she's "fat." She doesn't like how she looks. To use her own words, she thinks she's "too chubby" and that she "looks bad in everything."

She's 12 years old.

Do you want to know why she has this mindset? As her older sister, I failed in leading her by example. There were plenty of times when I was slightly younger, less sure of myself, and far more self-conscious than I am now, that I would look in the mirror and say that I looked too chubby, that my body didn't look good enough, that I wished I could change the size of my legs or stomach.

My little sister had to see the older sibling she looks up to, the big sis she thinks always looks beautiful, say awful and untrue things about herself because her own sense of body image was warped by media, puberty, and comparing herself to others.

My negativity rubbed off onto her and shaped how she looks at herself. I can just imagine her watching me fret over how I look thinking, "If she thinks she's too big, what does that make me?"

It makes me feel sick.

All of us are dealing with our own insecurities. It takes some of us longer than others to view ourselves in a positive, loving light. We're all working on ourselves every day, whether it be mentally, physically, or emotionally. But our own baggage shouldn't be shoved on to those we surround ourselves with, our struggles and insecurities should not form into their own burdens.

Work on yourself in private. Speak kindly of yourself in front of others. Let your positivity, real or not, spread to others instead of the bad feelings we have a bad habit of letting loose.

The little girls of the world don't need your or my negative self-image this summer. Another kid doesn't need to feel worthless because we couldn't be a little more loving to ourselves and a lot more conscious of what we say out loud.

3 Summer Resolutions You Should Make Today

Who says you can only make resolutions in the new year?

10

If you're like me, you may like making resolutions. It doesn't even have to be during the New Year's time; I just like making goals for myself. I do this during the new semester and during breaks too. So, I decided to compile a list of summer resolutions that I'd like to do and that you should have too. You don't have to do these to have a great summer, but these things will definitely make your summer more exciting. Besides, if you don't really know what you'll want to do this summer, these tips can help give you ideas. I made sure to keep them general so you could have some wiggle room with what you'd like to do.

So, without further ado, here are 3 resolutions you should make this summer:

1. Go somewhere new.

This is a pretty simple resolution, and you can play around with this idea. Summer is a great time to try new things and go to new places, so why not? You could go to a new restaurant you've never been to before or you could even go to a beach that you've never visited. You can go somewhere that you've always wanted to go or go to a place you just heard about. It's up to you; just go on your own little adventure! Personally, I'll be going to a beach that I haven't visited since I was really young, so it'll definitely feel like a new place to me!

2. Work on a project.

I love working on summer projects. It could be some sort of fitness challenge or craft, but projects are always great if you're stuck at home one day with nothing in mind to do. I worked on a big craft last summer that I'd like to finish this summer. I also have a fitness challenge later this summer. You could do whatever project you'd like; just have fun with it!

3. Volunteer.

I know that summer is supposed to be all fun and games, but, if you have some extra time, why not use it to help others? You could volunteer at an animal shelter or soup kitchen. I'm volunteering at a local library. It can be wherever you feel led to be, but helping people is a great way to spend your summer. Maybe you'll find an opportunity that you really like and would want to continue working with?

I hope these gave you some ideas for what you'd like to do this summer. Even though we all love summer break to get out of school, it can be a bit dull sometimes. Still, summer is a great opportunity to go out and try something you didn't have time to do during the school year. I encourage you to go out and make the most of your summer.

Good luck!
