I Found A Soulmate In My Best Friend, And She Is Truly My Rock

Thank you for being you.

Everyone says that your significant other is your soulmate, but I found my soulmate in my best friend.

There is nobody in this world who I feel as comfortable with, nobody in this world who can tell exactly what I am feeling by just looking at me, nobody in this world who knows me better than she does. Everyone has a soulmate, and she is mine. She has been there for almost everything in my life, giving me nothing but the most amazing support and love. She has seen the good, the bad, the ugly, and the absolute drama. Fortunately, she has stuck around. It has been well over fifteen years, and I know for a fact I would not be who I am or where I am today if I never met her.

We can go for weeks without talking, but, when we talk, it is like nothing has changed. We have our own lives going on — we have our own things to deal with. When we do come together, nothing really matters. I can show up at her house at one in the morning and fall asleep with her.

She is truly my rock and the best thing that has happened to me. From our 9-year-old shenanigans to the dumb decisions we made together in high school, I will always remember them. After all, she has literally been there through everything.

She was my backbone when I lost family, friends, and even myself. She was there when I was at my highest and my lowest; she never stopped showing me love.

She has been my biggest supporter when it comes to school and finding myself and my passion. She is one of the first people to read anything I publish, anything I post, and she is always the first person to tell me she is proud of me.We have planned out our entire lives around each other — where we want to live, the career paths we wish to follow, and the kids we wish to have.

So many friends have come and gone in both of our lives. There have been times where we have fallen off and forgot who we are to each other. I take her for granted and she has taken me for granted. Although she is my best friend, there are times where I want to kill her — I know the feeling is always mutual.

We annoy each other. We fight. We argue. We don't always agree on things. Fighting with someone you love more than yourself sucks but also hurts a lot.

Friend-love is really a different type of love, which I am so lucky to experience with her.

So here's to you, Snigdha. Thank you for being my person, my best friend, my soulmate, my supporter, the only person who truly knows how to handle my obnoxious personality, all in one. I love you and am so lucky to have you into my life.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

Founders Of Color Q&A: Yarlap's MaryEllen Reider On Destigmatizing Women's Health

The father-daughter duo co-founded the brand and has since generated a passionate, dedicated community of women.

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
