To The Girl Who’s Not Getting Engaged or Expecting This Holiday Season

It’s okay to be at a different stage in your life.


To the girl who’s not announcing that ‘big’ news this holiday season,

It’s okay. It’s okay to be slightly jealous of that girl on your feed’s beautiful ring or her seemingly perfect life; however, it’s also okay to be happy where you are in your own journey. It’s okay to not be in a committed relationship yet. There’s no reason you should be upset that you don’t have a boyfriend, you have plenty of other things in your life to be proud of!

Maybe you're in school, maybe you're working, or maybe you're just trying to decide what you want to do with your life.

No one’s journey has the same layout, so don’t compare where you are at in your life to anyone else’s! It’s like comparing apples to oranges. You are achieving your goals at your pace and that’s perfectly okay! Don’t focus on finding your person and making that seeming perfect life, focus on you and the rest will follow. It’s much more important to find your happiness and pursue what you love to do than to worry about finding someone to settle down with.

I want you to know that it’s perfectly okay for you to not be getting engaged or expecting this holiday season. It’s okay for you to be at a different stage in your life than everyone on your Instagram feed seems to be. Just because someone reaches that point in their life before you do does not mean that you’re a failure. All that means is that God is still working on your man to make him the best partner he can be, and all you can do is work on being the best you that you can be.
With love,

A girl who doesn’t have the ‘big’ news to share

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

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.
