To The Heartbroken Girl

You're one step closer to finding your Prince Charming.

To The Heartbroken Girl,

I know words don't help right now, but I hope these do.

Relationships are hard, trust me I know. One minute everything is perfect. The thought of him brings the biggest smile to your face, your stomach is full of butterflies, and your mind is picturing your forever together. But before long, complications arise. You start fighting, doing things behind each others' backs, and then poof, it's over just like that.

You cry and cry until you don't have any tears left and people may call you crazy, but honey that's normal.

Moving on isn't easy. Some days you will feel as if you've finally gotten past it, but before long it comes to haunt you again. Getting over a heartbreak takes time, lots of time.

I know your thinking of everything you lost right now, but take a step back and think of everything you've gained.

You've gained freedom.

The toxic relationship you've poured your heart and soul into is now gone. You have time to spend with your friends and family, cherish it. I know you may not want to at this very moment, but they love you. They love you unconditionally and are there for you every step of the way. Go to family dinners, parties with your friends, or travel the world. You have the freedom to choose. Do something, it doesn't matter what it is, just do something. Show him you're better off without him even if you don't believe it yet, sooner or later you will, I promise.

You've gained a better perspective on life.

I know boys are the last thing on your mind right now, but when you're ready to dive back into the crazy world of love, have peace of mind knowing that you have a better idea of the kind of man you want and need in your life. With every relationship comes new lessons learned. You're smarter now, better at making decisions, and a stronger woman because of it.

Honey, you've gone through hell and back and you're still breathing. You're a lot stronger than you think. So get up off your butt, stop wiping your tears, and quit rubbing your eyes, you have a life to live. You can do this.

"Pain makes you stronger, tears make you braver, and heartbreak makes you wiser, so thank the past for a better future."

Just remember, you're one step closer to finding your Prince Charming, the love of your life, your soulmate. Don't give up. Chase your dreams. Find your one true love. I believe in you.

God has a plan for you and your life, He's saving you for someone special, I promise.

With love,

The girl who has been heartbroken too.

To The Girl Struggling With Her Body Image

It's not about the size of your jeans, but the size of your heart, soul, and spirit.


To the girl struggling with her body image,

You are more than the number on the scale. You are more than the number on your jeans and dresses. You are way more than the number of pounds you've gained or lost in whatever amount of time.

Weight is defined as the quantity of matter contained by a body or object. Weight does not define your self-worth, ambition or potential.

So many girls strive for validation through the various numbers associated with body image and it's really so sad seeing such beautiful, incredible women become discouraged over a few numbers that don't measure anything of true significance.

Yes, it is important to live a healthy lifestyle. Yes, it is important to take care of yourself. However, taking care of yourself includes your mental health as well. Neglecting either your mental or physical health will inflict problems on the other. It's very easy to get caught up in the idea that you're too heavy or too thin, which results in you possibly mistreating your body in some way.

Your body is your special, beautiful temple. It harbors all of your thoughts, feelings, characteristics, and ideas. Without it, you wouldn't be you. If you so wish to change it in a healthy way, then, by all means, go ahead. With that being said, don't make changes to impress or please someone else. You are the only person who is in charge of your body. No one else has the right to tell you whether or not your body is good enough. If you don't satisfy their standards, then you don't need that sort of negative influence in your life. That sort of manipulation and control is extremely unhealthy in its own regard.

Do not hold back on things you love or want to do because of how you interpret your body. You are enough. You are more than enough. You are more than your exterior. You are your inner being, your spirit. A smile and confidence are the most beautiful things you can wear.

It's not about the size of your jeans. It's about the size of your mind and heart. Embrace your body, observe and adore every curve, bone and stretch mark. Wear what makes you feel happy and comfortable in your own skin. Do your hair and makeup (or don't do either) to your heart's desire. Wear the crop top you've been eyeing up in that store window. Want a bikini body? Put a bikini on your body, simple.

So, as hard as it may seem sometimes, understand that the number on the scale doesn't measure the amount or significance of your contributions to this world. Just because that dress doesn't fit you like you had hoped doesn't mean that you're any less of a person.

Love your body, and your body will love you right back.

Prom Doesn't Require A Significant Other, You Can Have A Blast No Matter Who You Go With

I'll forever cherish the memories I made with my friends that night.


Going to my friend's pre-prom today made me reminisce to about a year back when I was getting ready for my own prom. And even though it was months ago, it feels like just yesterday that I was figuring out where our pre-prom would be, what dress I would wear, and whether my friends and I would be able to secure a beach house for our after-prom. It was weeks on weeks of planning and stressing.

The biggest worry, though, was the matter of finding a date. Most of my friends and I were single and had never been in a relationship, so when it came time for people to start asking each other to prom, we naturally began to worry. Who would we go with? What if no one asked us? Would it be weird if we went with someone random? And as more people began to pair up, our worries only elevated. I can't even begin to count the number of conversations in which my friends and I looked through possible dates and discussed who would be matched up with who.

It was like a game to us. We all had one common objective: finding a prom date. We factored in heights, personality compatibility, likeliness to say yes (this was a big one, considering that we were all scared to make the first move). We talked to friends of friends, scoping out who the eligible bachelors were. In the end, I went with a good guy friend who I had a few classes with over the course of high school. He asked me over text after I questioned him about who he was going with, and he prom-posed a month later with chicken nuggets and the word "PROM?" spelled out in ketchup.

We had a great time together, and not once during prom night did I worry about the fact that we weren't dating. In fact, I'm glad that I got to go with a friend and not a boyfriend or a crush. I let loose and relaxed for once, not worrying about what to say or how to act. And looking back at it now, I shouldn't have been so caught up with the idea of going with the perfect date. Date or no date, boyfriend or just friend, prom was about me and my peers. I had a blast with people that I cared about, some who I've known practically my whole life.

There may have been some mishaps and worries along the way, but it turned out okay in the end. And I know for sure that I'll forever cherish the memories I made with my friends that night.
