What does the word Beautiful truly mean?

What does the word Beautiful truly mean? What does the word beautiful truly mean? Beautiful can mean so many different things to different people. However, what I am talking about is body image and self image. In our world today, it is defined by models we see in magazines, or even friends we envy for what they look like. Some are envied for how many likes or followers they have on Twitter or Instagram. We wish we were a smaller size, or what we were before we had kids. There is no issue with wanting that and aiming for that goal, but you have to do it for you and no one else. I have a theory why we do this. It may be wrong or right on the money for some people but here it is, self wort

Why 'Speechless' Is a Must-See Show for the Whole Family

When I heard about “Speechless,” I was excited. Why? Because one of the characters in the show, JJ has cerebral palsy like me. Micah Fowler is not an able-bodied actor playing someone with CP. That is often the case when it comes to characters with disabilities. He actually has cerebral palsy. It is so refreshing to see on TV. Hopefully we will see more of this sooner rather than later. I watch the show with my dad. Almost every episode, we find something he or I can relate to because JJ’s family deals with a lot of issues that a family with someone who is disabled often faces. I also think it shows that disability is not “woe is me.” It’s not about making JJ the inspiration in this show, no

This is for people who are obsessed with everything trending.

This is for people who are obsessed with everything trending. You know who you are. You’re the person wanting to try the new thing. Whether it be clothes, food, or a new place that everyone is talking about, or a place you feel you need to go to because all of your friends are going. You have fear of missing out if you don’t go when all of your friends are going. I know this, because I am one of you. We all are at one point in our lives. Why? I believe we have always had this fear of missing out on things. Think about when The Beatles were all the rage. Everyone wanted their merchandise because in that moment that was all the rage back then. Another example is when Jennifer Aniston

To people that have to let go of a person or people in your life

To people that have to let go of a person or people in your life- About 6 months ago, I for the first time in my life had to do something I had never done before. I let go of a friendship. Now, we all lose touch with friends in our lives; life happens- its normal! As for me though, I hold on to friendships longer than I should because I think that person in my life, at the moment in time, is my best friend. I want then to be my best friend when really they are close friends and they don’t treat me like I treated them etc. I have very low standards when it comes to friendships. With this particular ex best friend, we were friends for 5/6 years, it was good for a couple of years, we talked ev

This Is For The People Who Say ‘You’re Getting Old’

Guess what? Yes, I am and so is everyone else. So what? It’s not so bad. Yes, you get older. Everything aches, your hair might be starting to turn gray, and you’re not as young as you used to be. But we are all going to have to deal with it at some time in our lives. So instead of the negative self-talk that we frequently do especially on birthdays, embrace your age. Turn it into a positive. Look back on your accomplishments and look forward to what’s to come because that is far more important than saying something that is bound to happen no matter what you think about it. Age is just a number. That is what I think we should feel as a society. But we focus on getting older more than we do li
