Spread That Positivity

It's time to think better.

Spread That Positivity
Krysteen Ribeiro

Positivity, am I right?

Lately, I have been on a positivity kick. And it is kinda fun! So here is a list of ways for you guys to also spread the good feels and positivity and all that good stuff!

1. Smile.

Smiles, like yawns, are contagious. But unlike yawns, they brighten everyone's mood.

2. Laugh.

Laughter, such as yawns and smiles, are also contagious. And who cares if you have a weird laugh! It makes it that more infectious.

3. Compliment strangers.

Dude, if I see a girl rocking a cute outfit or a guy's eyebrows are on point, I cannot go without complimenting them! It is the best feeling. You don't know them, but they will always remember that compliment.

4. Say hi to everyone.

This is an awesome way to start the day. Not just yours, but everyone you see! Just a small greeting can brighten someone's day. Plus, it is a great exercise to break out of your shell!

5. Help lost people.

If you see someone lost or confused, go help them! They're going to be flustered and stressed. Lending a helping hand can do wonders. If you were in their position, wouldn't you want someone to come help you?

6. Make small talk with strangers.

Take the chance. Get to know someone. Make a new friend. Let someone know that they are worth the conversation.

7. Carry spare change or extra cash.

THIS. You have no idea how important this one is and can be. Nobody wants to go through the shameful "rummaging through the wallet" moment to find enough money for lunch. I have been there. It is not a great feeling. If you see someone who is struggling, offer to cover their meal. It'll make their day and it won't be a moment to forget. For the both of you.

8. Sit with a lone stranger for lunch.

Sure eating lunch by yourself can be relaxing. However, if you take the initiative to eat with someone new, it will be life changing! I remember there were days that I wouldn't eat lunch because all my friends were too busy and I didn't want to sit alone. Beat the stigma of eating alone and go sit with a stranger. Make a friend.

9. Be nice to everyone.

Seriously. Do I have to explain? Don't be dumb and a jerk. Words hurt!

10. Write a note.

Just write an anonymous note, wishing for someone to have a great day, reminding them that they matter, or a compliment on their smile.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
