12 Reasons Why I Can Always Count On My Mom
personal photo

Mother's Day might be over, but that doesn't mean I cant appreciate her.

I love my mom so much. She is my biggest role model. She is my rock and always will be.

Thank you mom for all you do for me.

1.  Her Love 

Sometimes love can be a difficult thing. But no matter what, my mother will always love me no matter what! She loves me unconditionally. The best part is that I know how much she loves me all the time.

2.  Her Advice

My mom is always there for me whenever I have a question. Even if it's the dumbest question ever. She helps me out when I have boy problems or school problems.

3. Her Patience 

Let's just say that my mom has not had the easiest time raising me. Every teenage girl has her moment. Every 20 year old women has their moment as well. Through it all, she remains calm and patient. She waits for me to calm down and we work through it together.

4. Her Cooking 

I personally am not the chef of my family. I never really learned how to cook growing up. I wasn't interested in it at all. It is so true that mothers make better grilled cheese than we do. Even though we use the same ingredients. It may just be a mother's love that makes it taste so delicious.

5. Her Shoulder To Cry On 

Like I said, we all have our moments. Through every rise and fall, she's there. I've gone through a few rough patches and I cried out to her. She was always there to listen and talk with me.

6. Her Strength 

I battled cancer and she held my hand through it all. She never let me give up on myself. I guess somehow she passed her strength onto me during that time.

7. Her Joy 

Whenever I have a bad day my mom will find a way to make me happy. She will sing You Are My Sunshine loudly and terribly until I start laughing. Her smile can light up any room.

8. Her Friendliness

I am so lucky to have a "cool" mom. All my friends have a nickname for her. All my friends absolutely adore her! She knows how to be cool and NOT embarrassing and I appreciate her so much for that.

9. Her Love For Things I Love

I fell in love with One Direction back in 2012. I played their music to my mom. At first she didn't really care for their music. I kept talking about them and playing their music and she eventually fell in love with them too. I love that we have a special bond over them!

10. Her Way Of Raising Me 

Everyone has always told me that I am very mature for my age. I believe that my mom plays a part in that. Growing up, she always answered my questions straight up. She didn't walk around the question and give me the child answer. She didn't "baby" me or make me feel any lesser than her. I deeply appreciate that.

11. Her Pushiness 

Yes sometimes she can be annoying when she tries to force me to do something I don't want to do. She tried to make me join sports in high school and I never did it. Now she is trying to make me join a sorority even though I don't want to. I know that she wants what's best for me.

12. Her Mom Figure 

Every single one of us has a mother. We wouldn't be here if it weren't for her. I'm so blessed that I got the mother I have. She is amazing in so many ways. Sometimes I feel like I don't appreciate her enough. I know that I can always count on her. Simply because she is my mom.

I hope that whoever reads this has mother that they absolutely love and adore. Tell them that you love and appreciate them because I'm sure they don't hear it enough.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

The Caribbean is a place where people go for vacation, but if you set out from a cruise ship you miss out on all the beautiful culture. Their exotic beaches are nothing without their zinging food and hospitality. Locals in the Caribbean are warmhearted with a zest to live life to the fullest.

This is exactly where most of their words and phrases come from, having a good time. I definitely enjoyed myself living in the Caribbean, but it's not always about lounging. They get work done too and I've learned proper phrases for accomplishments.

According to Urban Dictionary, a "simp" is defined as "a man that puts himself in a subservient/submissive position under women in the hopes of winning them over, without the female bringing anything to the table." There are many other definitions for a "simp," but basically it's shaming men who are kind to women without getting anything in return.

Let's just stop attacking nice men. Work out your own issues, don't project your shortcomings onto another man. What happened to the brotherhood? Y'all can lie for each other, but can't raise each other up? You guys can encourage murder, gang rape, and violence against women — or at least stay silent about it — but can't let your brother know it ain't cool when they bring you down for being nice to women with no expectation?

Self-Love Is The Best Love, That's Just How It Is

Do you ever feel like you can't please everyone? Self-love will do the trick.

I've been feeling a little down lately, with the understanding that friends don't last forever and that I can't always please my parents. Life has been rough for everyone lately and it's not easy to stay happy and optimistic during these times. But I promise you, you are on this earth for a reason. You are here because God formed you, to love, and to be loved.

When things are tough, realize that you have yourself always. No one can take that away from you. You will always be you. No matter who you are, what you believe, or where you've been in life, at the end of the day, you are you. You can love you, therefore giving you one reason to stay here on this Earth.

Nobody Wants To Grieve, But That's The Price We Pay For Love

Grief never comes when you think it should. It comes when a certain song comes on or the sun shines through the window just right.

Death always seems to come when life is good and everything starts to be going alright. And then out of nowhere, you're reminded of how cruel life can be. The stages of grief don't always go in order, they come in waves or all at once. Grief never comes when you think it should. It comes when a certain song comes on or the sun shines through the window just right. I take comfort in the fact that everyone experiences grief, even when you feel all alone knowing that everyone goes through a process that helps a little bit.

Living With Bipolar Disorder Is An Everyday Battle, But I'm Fighting It

I went from depression, to anxiety, to bipolar disorder.

I've rewritten it a thousand times in my head, but never could quite get the words onto my notepad, but tonight I'm going to sit down and write it.

I'm A Black, Gay Fashion Lover Who Grew Up In The South, And I Want To Be A Beacon For The Future

Giving your life story is never easy, but it can be, if you want to make a difference.

Jacorey Moon

Growing up in Georgia was not always the accepting place we know it to be today thanks to Atlanta. Let me preface this by saying, I had a pretty good life growing up. I was raised by a single mother who sacrificed so that I could live the life that I lived. I was spoiled rotten. One way that my mother spoiled me was through clothing.

These 10 Black Women Were Our 2000s Fashion Icons — We're Still Replicating Their Looks Now

We recollect on some of the Black stars who served as fashion icons during the 2000s.

When we talk about the 2000s, it's always filled with nostalgia. For most of us, we grew up during that era with the razr flip phones or sidekicks, and decade staple designers like Juicy Couture, Von Dutch, and Ed Hardy. It was time of daring fashion choices and red carpets that we now look back on and say, "what were they wearing?"

A sector of people that exemplifies the fashion icons who ruled the 2000s, were Black women. So, I feel as though it's my duty to shine light on these fashion icons. Here they are:
