Take A Reminder, Pass It On

This is for those who may be going through a rough time or dealing with an unpleasant situation.

Take A Reminder, Pass It On

You know that saying, you never know what someone is going through? Well, I think no matter how many times you've heard it, it will always be relevant. At any given time someone could be dealing with a million different struggles but still have a smile on their face. Just because they don't choose to outwardly share their trials doesn't mean their life is perfect. Appearances can be deceiving and things are not always as they seem. Often when someone is struggling with something, it makes it that much harder for them to ask for help.

So, this is for those who may be going through a rough time or dealing with an unpleasant situation, who may need a friendly reminder or two:

1. "Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will." - Suzy Kassem

You only fail when you give up, or never even try.

2. "Sometimes when things are falling apart, they may actually be falling into place." - Author Unknown

Even if you don't end up where you thought or wished you would be, just remember you will always end up where you're meant to be.

3. There's always tomorrow.

The darkest hour has only 60 minutes, and every day is a fresh start. The future is bright, I promise.

4. “Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end.” - John Lennon

Just keep breathing and fighting, I promise it will get better.

5. "Every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for a moment that is yet to come." - John Spence

It's true. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

6. Life is tough, but you are tougher.

You are stronger than you believe.

7. Sometimes it's best to just stay put and let things come to you.

Effort can only help so much sometimes.

8. You have to start somewhere.

Whether it's with fear, or sadness, or bravery. Just start. Use what you have, do what you can. And don't stop.

9. "Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations." - Zig Ziglar

The road less travelled by can be worth it.

10. Nothing worth doing is done easily.

Great work brings great results.

11. Don't avoid your feelings; take what they're showing you and use it.

Feelings have meaning. Every time you feel something, it's for a reason. A good reason. Don't ignore that. Listen to what your feelings are telling you and learn from it.

12. "Sometimes the worst place you can be is in your own head." - Author Unknown

We need to learn to let go of that picture in our head of how things are supposed to be. Because that's what screws us up the most.

13. Ultimately, the opinion that matters most is your own.

Listen to yourself. It's perfectly okay if the world doesn't understand.

14. Everybody makes mistakes.

So if you fall, just make it part of the dance. Learn from those mistakes.

15. You are enough.

You are more than enough.

16. It's not about being perfect, it's about trying your best.

Because in the end that's all anyone can really do. We're all human.

17. “Someday someone is going to look at you with a light in their eyes you’ve never seen, they’ll look at you like you’re everything they’ve been looking for their entire lives. Wait for it.” - Author Unknown

There's someone out there for you. They are waiting for you too, and they are going to be so worth it.

18. "Sometimes your circle decreases in size, but increases in value." - Author Unknown

There's a lot to be said about having a few really great friends, rather than a million alright ones.

19. "You're braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think." - Christopher Robin, character by A.A. Milne

And don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

20. The past is in the past, and cannot be changed.

Worrying will never change the that. Make peace and move on.

21. It's NEVER too late to change your life.

If you're not happy, do something about it. You can do anything you set your mind to.

22. You don't have to figure out everything all at once.

Just breathe, and take it one day at a time.

23. It's okay to not be okay.

It's okay to be scared. It's okay to be sad. It's okay to be confused. Let yourself feel these things. It's what you do with that that matters.

24. Always let joy be your compass.

Just do what makes you happy. Be with the people that make you happy. And share that happiness with everyone around you.

25. Change is natural, necessary, and a part of life.

It helps us grow and become the best people we can be.

26. Everyone's journey is different and unique.

Just because your timing, or situation, are different than everyone around you, doesn't mean yours is wrong. Just be yourself and trust the timing of your own life.

27. Happiness must be found within.

Don't ever give anyone else that much control over you.

28. Thinking positive thoughts is half the battle.

Positive thinking leads to positive outcomes.

29. Kindness is free.

And you never know how much a a difference one random act of kindness can make in someone's life.

30. What goes around, comes around.

Two wrongs don't make a right.

31. To the world you are just another person; but to someone, you are the world.

You mean everything to someone. Don't take that for granted.

32. You absolutely deserve happiness.

And you will find it. Just keep looking.

33. It is ALWAYS okay to ask for help.

If fact it's wonderful to ask for help. It doesn't mean you're weak. It means you're brave, and smart enough to recognize that you need it. And just so you know, there will always be someone willing to help. Even if it doesn't seem like it.

Please take a reminder from above (or as many as your need), then pass them on for the next person in need.

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
