Nobody pray for me
Even a day for me
Way (yeah, yeah!)

That lyric was off of Kendrick Lamar's famous song HUMBLE. Being humble is one of the best personality traits you can have. It generally shows that you care about others and the meaning of life itself. It makes selfless and full of love to give.

1. Always think of others.

One of the biggest ways of staying humble is to always be considerate of other people. It could be from the smallest thing from opening the door for someone or giving someone something for their birthday. Even if you don't know how to help someone in a certain situation, just simply being there and showing your love for them shows a lot about you.

Especially around the holidays, it can be hard for a lot of people because they want to celebrate and be with people that they love and be happy but they can't for various personal reasons. Imagine showing a simple act of humbleness to a random person and that actually makes their whole day and maybe could have even been the nicest thing that has happened to them in a really long time? Amazing right?

2. Body language.

Yes, body language. It is important that you look approachable. You don't want people to see you hunched over or looking like your in a grumpy mood. Stand up straight with your shoulder back with confidence. This gives the impression that you are comfortable with your own self and that actually tends to rub off on others in a positive way. Coming from personal experience, when I talk to people, they instantly opened up to me very quickly because of how I looked like I was comfortable in my own skin. Eye contact with people is also important. It gives you the impression that you are social and simply optimistic about things.

3. How you present your dialogue.

Talking... this is one of the most important parts about learning to be humble. When you speak, you actually want to sound bubbly with confidence in your voice. This sends off vibes that you are easy to talk to and you are very outspoken to others. You always want to use manners and have very attentive listening when the other person is talking. Another tip is to find ways you can relate to that person on their end. Even if you don't, try thinking of someone else you know that can relate and keep it going that way. Or if you can't do that either, you can ask them questions regarding what it is, to let them know you are curious and caring. It can make people feel like their not alone and make them feel relatable to you. That can also provide a sense of comfort.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Is a month at home too much to handle?

13798

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
