A twenty-something girl's take on the world.

Too old to know better & too young to give a damn.

We were meant to live for so much more.

How many times within the last week have you heard about Blake and Miranda divorcing? Ok, yes, the initial announcement threw me off my rocker and I was sad for a solid 60 seconds. Fact of the matter is, people get divorced everyday – every single day. People get divorced and then, they move on with their lives. My newsfeed is literally flooded with these damn articles… Blake cheated, Miranda cheated, divorce this, divorce that. Why are there polls being thrown around like, “Who’s side are you on? Blake or Miranda?” Who actually cares though? If you do care, you should absolutely re-think what you’re doing with your life. Seriously, get it together. Watch the news or something, because Blake and Miranda splitting up should be the least of your worries.

There’s something that really rubs me the wrong way and that’s how twisted the media is. We live in a society where people are more concerned with what “celebrities” are doing, than actual hardcore news. Step outside of your pretty little narcissistic box and open up your eyes and ears. We live in an ugly world, people. It’s a world divided by hate, a world full of self-destruction, materialistic morons, and senseless mass casualties.

We live in a world, where you can’t go watch a movie with your kids, because a worthless human being will go crazy and pull a gun on you. We live in a world, where you can’t put on a uniform to defend your country, because some ungrateful piece of crap will come to your work and gun you down. We live in a world where you can’t call a handyman for a house call, because he’ll stab you to death. We live in a world, where you can’t feel safe in your own home, because two reckless teenagers will break in and kill your family of five. We live in a world, where a police officer can’t conduct a routine traffic stop, because he’ll be fatally shot.

I can’t wrap my mind around the senseless killing. My heart is shattered. All of my thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by the latest tragedies.

Far-fetched and unlikely, but maybe one day, our world will find peace. In the words of John Lennon, we were meant to live for so much more.

Love conquers all.

9407823d8ea63d7ff4e7235d52187a87Love is love – plain & simple.

Aside from what the Bible says, what’s so wrong about two people that love one another, sharing a life together? How is it any different from a man and a woman doing so?

What if the gay community is actually a part of God’s plan? What if he’s trying to test the Christians, to see if we all really do love one another? Just some food for thought.

Don’t spread negativity and bash what you don’t understand. Instead, radiate love and promote happiness for all.

I believe we as Christians must love the sinner, but hate the sin. Rather than bash the gay community with our Bible thumping, we should quietly pray for their forgiveness. Never judge them or condemn them, because that’s not our call. I have love for everyone.

“Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. Show hospitality to one another without grumbling.” 1 Peter 4:8-9

To the first man I ever loved and the woman that gave birth to me.

1514195_10152505965373747_519905737_nI must say, I feel so blessed to have the most wonderful parents god could grace his children with. If there are two people in this world that I know I can count on, it’s these two. Not only are they the best parents, but they’re the best friends.

They laugh with me, they cry with me, they’re a shoulder to lean on, an ear to talk to, and a source of endless love. It’s not necessarily what they have done for me, although I appreciate every last ounce of it, but more of what they have taught me. They gave me the wings to fly and enough room to fall, but no matter what, they have always been there to pick me back up. There may come a day that they won’t be able to help me, but I know it won’t come without a try.

IMG_0685They taught me that not everything is going to go as planned, but everything will be ok. They have never stopped believing in me, and in return, I have never stop believing in myself. They have showed me the meaning of hard work and dedication. They have taught me to love myself enough to love someone else. They have never sheltered me from the world, but have always kept me within close distance. They were always strict, but after all of these years, you realize it was out of nothing but love. They taught me right from wrong and how to treat others with even more respect than I would expect in return. They have taught me to always stand for my beliefs, hold onto my values, and never lose my morals. They taught me the definition of self respect, how a man should treat a woman, and how a woman should treat a man. They taught me how to think, not what to think. They planted seeds and watched me grow.

You only get one set of parents, and although you may not agree with everything they have done or said, they’re your one and only set. Theres no refunds or returns. They brought you into this world. Respect them, cherish them, and never give up on them.

So, a message to my mom and dad… From studying my feet and watching me breathe as a baby, dealing with my hormonal tantrums as a teenager, to molding me into a strong-willed, loving, and caring woman… I can’t say thank you enough, but thank you for giving me the world. You’re my rocks. I love you both to the moon and back, ’til the end of time.

Valentines Shmalentines.

So, what does everyone have plannea97f6f9baa7c91c1c9185117d24ba323d for Valentine’s Day?

For me, a heart shaped pizza & a bottle of your cheapest wine (the essentials) will suffice.

What can I say, I’m a low maintenance kind of gal.

I feel like when you’re in a long term relationship, Valentines day isn’t significant anymore – especially when your boyfriend treats you like a princess every day of the year (if he doesn’t, ditch him.)

Personally, I think if you need a silly holiday that consists of overpriced flowers and heart shaped chocolates to justify your relationship, you have bigger problems.


Singles Awareness Day

To all of my single ladies, chocolate binges and pity parties are acceptable (why not? we’ve all been there.)

WHATEVER you do, don’t lye naked on the floor, with a bottle of vodka in hand, while screaming Adel songs to your cat(s).

A list of what to do & what not to do on this dreadful and overrated holiday:

  1. Give thanks for the ones that got away – they did you a favor.
  2. Don’t feel sorry for yourself – you’re better than that.
  3. Don’t drunk dial your Exes – it’s never as good of an idea as you think.
  4. Don’t be ashamed of being single – you just haven’t met the one that makes your heart happy (and thats ok.)
  5. Throw an anti-Valentines Day party – misery loves company & you can’t finish all that bought wine by yourself (just kidding, you probably could.)

Spread the love

Now, for all of you ladies with high expectations of what your boyfriends/fiances/husbands are going to do for you… why not switch it up and surprise them with something special? Let’s not be selfish.

Last year, after endlessly searching Pinterest, I bought my boyfriend new Nikes with a note attached saying “You walked into my life and made me realize why it never worked out with anyone else.” Corny? Yes. But it’s all about the thought and preparation you put into it – even the men need to feel appreciated!

That being said, I took the liberty to search Pinterest for what I think is one of the best DIY gifts to make for your man (remember, it’s the thought that counts.) Keep it cute & easy!
