A Work In Progress

Loving yourself is what's most important.

A Work In Progress
Maddie Stallings

Something that comes naturally for some and something that other majorly lack.

For me, I am somewhere in the middle.

From the outside looking in, people think that I am confident and that I love myself 110%.

Well, today, I am here to tell you, that's not the truth.

I lack confidence and self-love.

Over the years and as I get older, the more I try to gain that confidence I wish I had and I try to full heartedly love myself for who I am. Let me tell you, the struggle is real.

After hating yourself, your image, and everything overall for such a long time, it is extremely hard to figure out self-love. It is hard to build up that confidence and find peace within yourself.

I am working on it, it is a major work in progress. It has taken a lot of time to start the process and I know I have a long time ahead of me.

I want everyone out there to know, self-love is possible. Loving yourself is such an important factor in your life and yes, it takes a lot of work but it is so worth it.

Loving yourself for who you are, for who you are becoming or want to be, is truly the key to happiness. The feeling of being happy and just walking with confidence is so freeing.

Be free, love yourself, and walk the path that is in front of you with confidence and your head held high.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.
