When You Have Something Good

Hold onto it for dear life.

When You Have Something Good

You know that state of happiness when you just feel like you're on top of the world? Like things are FINALLY going right for you? Like God is finally answering your prayers?

It's like you can't imagine anything or anyone that could make you feel this extent of happiness. You realize how lucky you are and you pray to God that that happiness doesn't get taken away.


Me too.

I'm to the point in my life where I can say I finally found something good. Or rather, someone good.

I met you almost eight months ago. I didn't know you were going to change my whole world, but you somehow managed to. You entered my life when I sent you that first message, and I can't imagine what it'd be like if I never started that first conversation.

At first it was just a normal friendship. But it was also really weird for a NEW friendship. Like you and I talked ALL the time. And I was wondering what you were doing ALL the time. That should've been the first clue, but apparently I'm oblivious.

We went from close friends to dating in a matter of a week. It still seems like just yesterday we started dating; only because time spent with you goes by so quickly. I can never get enough.

You've changed my viewpoints on a variety of things. You've cheered me on when I had absolutely no faith in myself. You reassured me when I felt like my whole world was falling apart. You proved to me you would always have my back and help me pick up the pieces. You've spent day in and day out loving me and I cannot describe just how valuable that is.

I'm a firm believer of whatever happens happens. I'm not naive enough to think all relationships are perfect (much less that breakups don't happen). I've been through heartache, disappointment, manipulation, and people giving up on me. I know the world isn't always fair.

It's always seemed like I put in so much more effort to keep my relationships intact. Which, if you think about it, isn't all that healthy. I ALWAYS put the other person before myself. Always. It's just how I am. When I want something, I want it, and I do everything in my power to keep it.

That's where you come in.

I want you. I want you every night and day for the rest of my life. I want to wake up to your groggy eyes and beautiful smile. I want to have to force you out of bed AFTER all SIX of your irritating alarms go off. I want to hold your hand in the grocery store. I want to kiss you goodnight. I want to be there for you through every up and down life brings you. I want to be your go-to, your ride or die, your best friend, your soulmate. I want to drink wine with you over fancy Italian dinners I prepared. I want to adopt your little fur baby (Lucy) and create a family with you. I want to hold you every time you're lying next to me. I want you to know you always have someone on your side. I want the laughs, the mental breakdowns, the yelling, the fighting, the insanity. I want it all.

But I can skip the fairy tale. All I want is you.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s.

Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.
