To The Girl Who Can't Love Herself

Nothing worth having comes easy.

It’s hard feeling special in this world of empty thoughts and promises. It’s even more challenging when you can talk yourself into thinking that you are not valuable to this world. You are, though. It’s time to start recognizing that you are special and no one controls your emotions but yourself. It’s time to fall back in love with the person who stares back at you in the mirror for the rest of your life.

Maybe it started when you were young or maybe it started when your best friend didn’t want anything to do with you all of a sudden. Maybe it started when you started to realize that a boy controls your happiness or maybe you never even saw it coming. Maybe you still don’t know when or why or how you stopped; or if you even ever stopped.

Let me just say that so many people can see what you can’t see in yourself. It’s hard to recognize and it’s even harder to come to terms with the fact that you broke your own heart whether it was yesterday, six months ago or two years ago. Please, though, you have to try. I know that it’s about time to start loving yourself again. You have to remember why you were possibly happier when you were younger or what your first boyfriend in 5th grade told you that he liked about you while he ignored the factor of “cooties.”

Not a day goes by that your parents, guardians or grandparents aren’t proud of you. Look at the beautiful person you’re becoming! Look at your friends who never give up on you even if you push them right out of the door. Look at how excited your dog is to see you when you walk in the house.

I know that society, self-image and so many more can make you forget how much you mean to so many people. You are wanted and loved by countless numbers of people and every person that you meet is influenced by you in some way. Self-love is not a thing of the past, but instead it is something that is not as self-absorbed as it sounds. No matter who you are, you are unique. There is not one person on this Earth that looks, acts, talks or sounds the same as you and that is beautiful! Take the time to love yourself and everything will fall into place.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
