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

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

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.
