You're Worth More Than Your GPA

So friends, the time that you are beating yourself up because the hard work that you put into your classes didn't seem to pay off, remember that your worth is found in the eyes of your Heavenly Father and to Him


College, where you're slammed with exams, quizzes, homework assignments, projects, etc, all while trying to keep your mental sanity. Sometimes being slammed with all of these things in a close period of time can result in breakdowns physically, mentally, and emotionally. When you're in the midst of these breakdowns, it's easy to pick yourself apart and fill your head and heart with negative thoughts. If you aren't careful, these negative thoughts and lies consume you, eventually making you feel that your success academically defines you. Well friends, I'm here to remind you of something. You are worth more than your grade point average. Let me say that again. You are worth more than your GPA. You are worth more than the promotion you didn't get from work. You are greater than your successes and you are not defined by your failures. You are no less of a person because of the things you do and how well you do them. Your worth is found in something and someone greater. You, my friend, are a child of God and that makes your value immeasurable.

Your worth isn't found in your earthly possessions or the things that you succeed in. God isn't exactly concerned about the things you own or the things that you may win trophies for. The thing that God cares most about is your soul. He cares about your soul and He cares about you. He cares about the work you do with your hands because He made them for you to reach out to others. He cares about the steps you take with your feet because someone else may follow. He cares about the things and people that you see with your eyes so that you're always looking for another soul to reach. He cares about the way you use your arms to offer a hug or pick up those around you who have fallen. He cares about every little thing about you.

You see friend, the same God that created your hands, feet, eyes, etc, created the stars above you and the beauty that surrounds you. The same way that He planned the universe, He planned for your life. Every single detail. When a God who is so great and so big creates an entire universe and also takes the time to plan every exact moment your life, that shows just how loved you are. The same God who placed the stars in the sky and knows them all by name also knows yours. And you know what, He's also the same God that knows your future exam scores. With every assignment that you do, God already knows the outcome because He cares about those small things too. But you want to know the coolest part about that? He knows those exam scores, your GPA, etc, and He loves you just the same because they don't define you. You are no less special to Him because you failed a test and you are no more special to Him because you got an A in your anatomy class.

So friends, the time that you are beating yourself up because the hard work that you put into your classes didn't seem to pay off, remember that your worth is found in the eyes of your Heavenly Father and to Him, you are loved and are worth so much more than you could ever imagine.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

Keto is just another extension of diet culture that boasts rapid weight loss, but at a steep price.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
