To The Girl Weathering A Season Of Change, Remember This
Heaven Nash

Sweet girl,

As you know, there are two types of change that happen throughout life. First, change that is incredible and exactly what is needed, easy change. Second, change that is heart-wrenching and flips out the world around, extremely difficult change. No matter the change that you are currently going through, I am here to tell you that you are going to be OK, I promise.

You aren't alone.

Take a view minutes throughout each day to reflect on the individuals who you spent time with for the last 24 hours. What did these hours consist of? During a season of change, it is easy to feel isolated and alone. However, sister, there are so many people that love and care for you. Please never forget that.

Never lose hope.

Even when it is easy to give up when life throws road bumps in your path, never ever lose hope. Try to think of things from a new perspective. Yes, this person may have walked out of your life but there was a reason. God is moving this person to make room for someone even better.

This is going to take time.

No matter which type of change you are experiencing, it is going to take time to adjust. Nothing will be a night and day difference overnight. During this time of healing, take care of YOU. Do things you love with the people you love.

Don't forget to explore.

Even if you've been on this earth for 40-plus years, you learn and grow every single day. Make a bucket list, short-term goals, try 10 things new this week, don't live this one life you get just going through the motions.

Stay inspired.

Whether you dive deep into God's word, a new self-help book, or even simply make a Pinterest board of all your favorite quotes, always stay inspired. Inspiration is something that will push you to be the best version of you, even during the most difficult times in life.

Clean out the negativity.

Negative people, perfectionism, judgment, self-doubt, assuming the worst in situations, complaining, or obsessing over control... the list could go on and on. You are never going to grow if you are surrounding yourself with this intense negativity. Filter it all out girlfriend, you'll see an incredible change.

Count your blessings.

Look around you. There are so many blessings, even within this crazy season of change. You woke up today. Yes, you may have a day full of work and school, but how lucky are we to get to have education and the opportunity to pick a career we love. You may have an entire week until payday, but wow we get to work and earn money to be able to live a happy life, how awesome is that!

This may be a season of change, but you will never grow into an incredible woman you are capable of being if you remain the same. Change isn't going to grow you if it isn't scary! We are going to get through this together, God gave us a community to wrap our arms around mountain movers like you.

Sincerely,

The girl who 100% understands what you're feeling

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
