    When the Past Threatens Your Future and Destroys the Present

    Memory is an essential part of the human condition. Past experiences provide a frame of reference for the present and future. Hanging on to the past, however, can rob tomorrow of its potential.

    How to Motivate Yourself on "Off" Days

    How to Motivate Yourself on "Off" Days

    Lack of motivation is so common, and we all experience it at some point in our lives. We can go from 100 to 0 in the matter of seconds, and let’s face it, it’s so much easier to sit and watch Netflix instead of doing anything productive (that’s how I have spent my morning… whoops). Here’s the thing though, sometimes a rest is good, however if that’s all you’re doing then you won’t get anything done, and will feel like you’ve wasted your time. We all have off days, but the most successful people still find a way to work on them, below are my top tips to motivating yourself on an off day.

    Things That Are Better Than Diamonds

    Things That Are Better Than Diamonds

    1. Never, under any circumstance, hold on to any promises. Of course, the power of trusting someone is in your hand, but why risk all the betrayal when you could just learn to not trust anyone? Sure, some people may break their promise unwillingly, given that luck is not on their side, and this makes you feel guilty because you are thinking that he or she were forced to break the promise, thus making you feel like the bad guy over there, because you are making a big deal out of a promise. As hurtful as it is, I must say, it is 2019. People will get mad at you back, if you are mad at them for breaking promises.

    Exploit Your Ego

    Exploit Your Ego

    Most of the people consider ego an evil thing. But, in my opinion, ego is a valuable tool that might help us reach greater heights in our lives. As long as we have control over something, its "goodness" or "evilness" depends on us: the users.

    Cutting Away Insecurities?

    Cutting Away Insecurities?

    Snip-snip. The metallic scissors expertly work through the frame around my face. I stare at myself in the full-length, over-sized mirror. Perfect time to have my face magnified to maximum exposure. Oh, wow. This light is the least flattering thing that has fallen on my face since a girl’s elbow met my cheek as we were wrestling to get the ball during water-polo. Sunken eyes. Dark circles form hoops under them, becoming the focal points that have taken central stage. Skin with an unhealthy, yellowish tinge. I spy that double chin peeking out from under there (Mate, what are you doing?! Please hide). Since when did my cheeks get so full? I have seriously gained bad weight. Since when did they jut out so much (Not cheekbones, mind you)? And wow, where did my jawline go? Nonexistent. It has melted into the hues of my neck. I look at myself, shifty-eyed. I do not like what I see.

    Back Roads

    Back Roads

    I grew up in a family who loved to take the back roads. There are few things I enjoy doing more than driving down the red, dusty country roads of Oklahoma. My friends and I love to kick back, crank up the country music, roll down the windows, and simply cruise the countryside. Oklahoma is laid out in one-mile squares. Most of the back routes are dusty, gravel roads. The baby green colors of springtime and the miles of winter wheat fields nourish the soul. You can imagine the surprise we felt when, one day we stumbled upon literally miles of cattle fence posts topped with cowboy boots.
