strength quotation
credit to taylor contarino

strength. i think that

in some ways

i am stronger than i have ever been before.

i think to not be is something i cannot afford.


i think that i have been through a lot

maybe to some a little

but i take all the negativity

solve it inside out like a riddle.


i think my strength makes me who i am

i think it makes me real and raw

to know

i'm not a scam.


i think its refreshing

to know i'm not alone

but to be with myself solely

i can tell how much I've grown


i yearn to be fearless

i yearn to have no fear

i want to be a role model

be better than i was last year


i want to be loved

but i know that starts with me

my heart and my brain

must find a way to agree


to be loved universally

to be loved by my own self

the second is harder than the first

i cant hide my feelings on a shelf


my emotions, bare to see

maybe that's an accomplishment

i'm finally comfortable

let me rejoice in my own acknowledgement


i pray you find strength too

for that is where strength lays

knowing you are content

but wanting to brighten other's days


a light that kindles to light the fire of others. your own bucket is full- you continue on filling the buckets of others with the extra that you have, this is where strength lies- even when your bucket is less than full.

you fill others.

strength.

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves. I realize not everyone believes in astrology-related anything, and there are plenty of people who don't fit their signs. However, I'm one of the people who truly fits their sign to a tee. I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there

Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
