To The Girl Who Needs a Hobby

First of all, let's just clarify and say that you are perfect the way you are. You will ALWAYS be perfect. No matter what you do. You don’t need to strive to be someone you are not and pretend to be interested in certain things only to gain acceptance from this world. You are WONDERFUL no matter what you do. And what you do doesn’t define you.


Every lady deserves to wake up each and every morning with passion in her heart, joy in her very lungs, and excitement in her bones to make a change in this world.

This one’s for you.

Hobbies don’t define who you are and who you were created to be, your identity will always remain the same. Hobbies definitely help stir up a passion deep within you. This passion gets you excited about life, and waking up in the morning becomes a little bit easier. You were created to be unique, so why don’t you just rock it? Whatever that looks like. Go after your dreams. Go after the desires of your heart. Do not ignore them. So, what are you good at? What are you truly passionate for? Do you want to see this world changed through music? Maybe you have an eye for creation and you should pick up that camera of yours that has been laying around for over a year. Maybe you are passionate about helping people, so why not volunteer somewhere? Maybe you love doodling in your journal, and you’re really good at it. How about using that creative hand of yours and start moving forward? MAKE ART. Maybe you’re really good at singing and you are too afraid to sing in your local church. PUSH yourself. Whatever that may look like. Hobbies take time, dedication, being pushed out of your comfort zone, and being bold. Practice makes perfect. So if you enjoy something, why not invest in it a little bit more? You will see change; don’t give up when it’s hard.

The reason hobbies are so important is the fact that it will bring out special talents that lie within you that you maybe didn’t even think were that special in the first place. If you start to chase after what you are passionate about, the desires in your heart, other people will feel encouraged to do that same thing for themselves. If you go after that one thing, (or maybe there are multiple) it will bring a tremendous amount of joy to your very life. You will start to feel alive. And that right there makes a huge change in this world.

It is time to start putting things aside that aren’t challenging us, and or pushing us to our fullest potential. It is time to explore certain things we may be good at, and time to start getting to know ourselves a little bit better. The reason I say this is because we live in a culture where technology has become priority over all. We start to lose ourselves in the mix of things that are not even that important. We start to become obsessed with what other people are doing over social media and how many likes we are getting on a picture. We start to get lazy and become less passionate about what really matters. It is time to start being productive, and it is time to start using our creativity to help better the world and most importantly, our very own well-being. I encourage you to try it- step out, and try something new. You may be surprised.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Dear Closeted Latina,

You were never alone.

Remember how the Latin world got rocked when Ricky Martin came out?

It wasn't until I hit 23 years old that I started getting hangovers. It could've been from two glasses of wine or even a margarita at happy hour, the next day, consider me bed-bound until further notice.

According to Urban Dictionary, a "simp" is defined as "a man that puts himself in a subservient/submissive position under women in the hopes of winning them over, without the female bringing anything to the table." There are many other definitions for a "simp," but basically it's shaming men who are kind to women without getting anything in return.

Let's just stop attacking nice men. Work out your own issues, don't project your shortcomings onto another man. What happened to the brotherhood? Y'all can lie for each other, but can't raise each other up? You guys can encourage murder, gang rape, and violence against women — or at least stay silent about it — but can't let your brother know it ain't cool when they bring you down for being nice to women with no expectation?

Self-Love Is The Best Love, That's Just How It Is

Do you ever feel like you can't please everyone? Self-love will do the trick.

I've been feeling a little down lately, with the understanding that friends don't last forever and that I can't always please my parents. Life has been rough for everyone lately and it's not easy to stay happy and optimistic during these times. But I promise you, you are on this earth for a reason. You are here because God formed you, to love, and to be loved.

When things are tough, realize that you have yourself always. No one can take that away from you. You will always be you. No matter who you are, what you believe, or where you've been in life, at the end of the day, you are you. You can love you, therefore giving you one reason to stay here on this Earth.

The Caribbean is a place where people go for vacation, but if you set out from a cruise ship you miss out on all the beautiful culture. Their exotic beaches are nothing without their zinging food and hospitality. Locals in the Caribbean are warmhearted with a zest to live life to the fullest.

This is exactly where most of their words and phrases come from, having a good time. I definitely enjoyed myself living in the Caribbean, but it's not always about lounging. They get work done too and I've learned proper phrases for accomplishments.

Nobody Wants To Grieve, But That's The Price We Pay For Love

Grief never comes when you think it should. It comes when a certain song comes on or the sun shines through the window just right.

Death always seems to come when life is good and everything starts to be going alright. And then out of nowhere, you're reminded of how cruel life can be. The stages of grief don't always go in order, they come in waves or all at once. Grief never comes when you think it should. It comes when a certain song comes on or the sun shines through the window just right. I take comfort in the fact that everyone experiences grief, even when you feel all alone knowing that everyone goes through a process that helps a little bit.

I'm A Black, Gay Fashion Lover Who Grew Up In The South, And I Want To Be A Beacon For The Future

Giving your life story is never easy, but it can be, if you want to make a difference.

Jacorey Moon

Growing up in Georgia was not always the accepting place we know it to be today thanks to Atlanta. Let me preface this by saying, I had a pretty good life growing up. I was raised by a single mother who sacrificed so that I could live the life that I lived. I was spoiled rotten. One way that my mother spoiled me was through clothing.
