You Are Good Enough

Stop saying you aren't good enough!

You Are Good Enough

Stop saying you will never be good enough for someone or something. I understand why you say it, but it doesn't have to stay that way. The more times you say a certain word or phrase, the more times it gives your heart the chance to believe it. I am guilty of saying, "Well I guess I am not good enough for anyone," and, "No one wants to be around me," which maybe I have come to believe. Those statements effect how we live on a daily basis and the people around us. It will give off a negative vibe, and no one wants that. Your purpose on this earth is not to impress someone, or to be good enough for them. Your purpose is to serve the Lord and be who he made you to be. To Him, you are enough. You are more than enough. He loved you even before you were born, and even before the world was created. Every time I come to that phrase, "I am not good enough," I remind myself I am enough, and much more. Not everyone is meant to stay in our lives, but the people that cross our paths were put there for a purpose. God's plan for all of us leads us on a path. Sometimes we come across temporary relationships, and other times we come across forever relationships. Every experience we have is experienced for a reason. Most of the time the reason is to teach us something, other times it is the first step on our way to a great new adventure. The more positive outlooks you have, the less unwanted phrases come in your head. Don't give in to the phrase "not good enough," stand up and do something about it. Don't sit around and just let someone or yourself think that, be yourself. Love the person you are, and the rest will just fall into place.

To the girls,

Remember to always love yourself no matter how you feel in that moment about your looks. Too often we think that makeup and cool clothes are the ideal things to makes us good enough for someone else: wrong! You do not need the latest styles and makeup trends to be enough for someone. You are fabulous just the way you are.

To the guys,

There is no shame in loving who you are. It is not just something girls struggle with. Be who you are, and own it! Do not go above and beyond to impress someone with stylish clothes, but be your full self and embrace it. Do not do something just to be cool and have friends. Have friends for the right reason, by being your awesome selves.

Overall, what I am trying to say is never let a word or phrase ruin how you see yourself. We weren't put on this Earth to impress others, but to accept and love others.

"I will praise You because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful, and I know this very well."

Psalms 139:14 HCSB

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
