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.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
