What You Accept Is What You Will Get

Do you want a Rolls-Royce or a Toyota?

What You Accept Is What You Will Get
The Fashionisto

I hear the words “too picky” on a daily basis. When it comes to all aspects of my life I refuse to settle for anything less than the absolute best. Do I sound self-righteous? Most likely, but as a girl who has had more than her fair share of mediocre in her life, I feel that at this point in my life when it comes to work, friendships, relationships, etc. I want the Rolls-Royce of it all. If you consciously know that you are settling because it is comfortable in any area of your life and you know you can do better, then why not go out there and see what having the best looks and feels like? You may not have seen what having the best of it all looks like in your own life, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

Believe it or not, the majority of the millennial generation has major self-esteem issues. Most don’t think that they deserve the best, so in turn, they settle for mediocre and believe that, that is just how their life is supposed to be. They feed themselves this story as a reason to stay deep within their comfort zone. Why should they allow people to be amazing to them when their internal dialogue is constantly telling them they deserve to be treated way less than amazing? Trust me when I tell you, I have my moments when it comes to how I view myself. I have good days and bad just like everyone else, but at the end of most days, I know who I am even if I am not ecstatic with certain parts of my life at that time. I was blessed enough to be raised by parents who instilled major self-esteem within me. They taught me to, no matter how I felt about myself on any given day, to remember that I do deserve the very best, just like you do too.

You don’t have to shout from the rooftop how amazing you are and the quality of life you deserve, you just have to carry yourself in a manner that reflects how you feel and attracts what you deserve. Like they say, how many commercials have you seen for a Rolls-Royce? None, because people know the value it has by the brand it has established within its name and the weight it carries in being a quality, luxury car, so in turn its buyers are only quality people looking for a life of luxury. It is the law of attraction, how you carry yourself and how you feel about yourself is how you establish your brand. Make sure it is a brand that brings the type of customers you are looking for. If it isn’t, rebrand yourself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

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.
