I Am Okay With Being Patient And You Should Be Too

Life will come together and it will be beautiful.

I Am Okay With Being Patient And You Should Be Too

I’ve always had this false idea that breaks in relationships were complete BS. You either want to be with someone or you don’t, right? I guess I’m just the type of person who knows what they want and I do what I need to get there. But not everyone works that way. There really are so many options in life and you make what you want out of it.

Life is not easy by any means.

Deciding what you want to do with the rest of your life, who you want by your side through it all.

Space IS okay in a relationship. It can prove how you truly feel about someone. Do you love them or do you love the attention they’re giving you? Are they worth giving your all to? It took me until yesterday to realize this. When someone wants space, give it to them. God has it all planned out for you.

While having this time without each other, really focus on bettering yourself.

Do what makes you happy and don’t worry about what they’re thinking or what they’re doing. Have faith that everything will work out for the best.

The mistake we make is thinking we need someone else to keep us happy.

You can never rely on someone else for that. You need to love yourself because, in the end, that’s all you’re going to have.

Sometimes we lose track of that because we meet someone who gives you a feeling you didn’t even know was possible. But don’t lose track of yourself just because you found someone else.

I give myself to few but when I do, I give my all. No amount of pain will ever take that away from me. I love with my whole heart and one day someone is going to appreciate that. I guess when I meet someone that I feel is worthy of my love, I dive head first, willing to give them the world.

That’s what love is all about.

Being comfortable enough with them that you feel like you don’t have to hold back. You can be yourself, completely.

“there are far too many mouths here

but not enough of them are worth

what you’re offering

give yourself to a few

and to those few

give heavily”

-Rupi Kaur

Sometimes you just meet someone and it’s different. You can have trust issues your whole life and you meet them and you don’t even question them because they make you feel so safe. They never have you second guessing them or their intentions. I wouldn’t really consider this a good thing since everyone proves you wrong eventually. But at the time, it’s such a surreal feeling. When you just connect with someone right away like that, don’t let go of it. Just because someone proves you wrong or disappoints you does not mean you have to leave or give up on them. You can choose to forgive them and move past it. That's how relationships grow and prosper.

Our generation SUCKS.

Nobody takes relationships serious anymore. It’s just one big game that nobody can ever really win. What’s the point in playing with people’s hearts? There’s absolutely no excuse for it. If you want someone, let them know. If you don’t, stop acting like you do! None of us are afraid of falling in love, we are afraid of getting hurt.

Too often people associate love with pain. Love is not pain nor heartbreak, love is beautiful. Love is magical and those whole experience true love are the luckiest people in the world because nothing makes you feel more alive then being in love. Love means knowing the flaws of someone and still thinking they’re an absolute trophy. Love is unconditional and it doesn’t ever fade. You may not be able to choose who you fall in love with, but you CHOOSE to stay in love with them. You choose to stay with them, to put in the effort, to forgive them and grow with them. Just stop making people fall in love with them if you aren’t willing to choose them.

I’m not in any rush, but one day someone will love me the way that I love them, wholeheartedly. Someone will choose me one day and continue to choose me until the end. Someone will be willing to give me the world and do anything for me. The love will be reciprocated and never questioned. That’s why I don’t give up. That’s why I don’t settle. That is why I’m okay with being patient. Even if I know exactly who I want to wait for.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
