Unbreakable

Every day you turn on the news, and more people are killed. Terrorist attacks. Bombs. Shootings. This world is more divided than ever. It’s divided by race, religion, sexuality, gender, political affiliation… But now is not the time to be divided. Now is the time to unite. There are so many bad people in the…

Goodness Prevails

Sometimes, I look around me and see nothing but bad. Everyday on the news people are murdered and kidnapped. At school, people are rude to their classmates. On social media, people tear each other down, people are constantly rude to each other. It seems that everywhere, people are bad. But when I really look around,…

Family

What do you think of when you think of family? Your parents? Your grandparents? Political debates at Thanksgiving dinner? Pretending to remember all of those random aunts at family reunions? Do you think of love? Laughter and vacations? Or do you think of not so good things? Do you think of divorce? Yelling and screaming?…

Voice.

When silence fills the world around you, what do you do? Do you join the silence? Get up, stand up, and let the world hear you. You only need 1 spark to light the dark, only 1 sound to break the silence. When the world is consumed with hate, violence, and tragedy, don’t let it…

Feminism

Feminism is something that I’m very passionate about. It’s something that I believe in, even if I’m seen as “That Weird Feminist Girl” at school. Something that people often think about feminism is that it’s encouraging the idea that “all men are pigs,” which isn’t the case. Feminism is often called “cancer” (it’s extremely disrespectful…

Optimism

Optimism- hopefulness and confidence about the future or the successful outcome of something. (noun) I’m an optimist. No, that does not mean I don’t think there’s any bad in the world, and everything is good. It means I think despite the bad, life is still good. Some people think that optimists have no real perception…

The Importance Of Friendship

“I believe in soulmates. I believe that God create people to be with certain people. However I don’t just believe in romantic soulmates, I believe in friendship soulmates too. And I believe I’ve met a couple of my friend soulmates. Since I’ve started my school, I’ve met a girl who I’m sure is one of…

My Favorite SongsĀ 

Music is powerful. Certain songs motivate me, make me sad, empower me, cheer me up, calm me..  Music is wonderful! Although I’m not a great singer, I love listening to music. These are some of my favorite songs, in 2 categories- worship, and pop.  Pop songs: 1. Be My Forever by Christina Perri (featuring Ed…

The Bad Things Aren’t So Bad

Loss, tragedy, death, sickness, disasters, heartbreak.. these are all bad things. They can result in many sleepless nights, weeping, anger, mental illnesses… Clearly all of these things are bad. But how bad are they really? I think a lot of people assume that when bad things happen, it means that everything is bad now, and…

My Struggle With Anxiety

Hi everyone! It’s been awhile.. like 2 weeks since I’ve blogged. Whoops! Part of the reason is because I’ve started my new school (which is going great by the way), and I have homework, plus dance 2 nights a week.. I’m a busy person! However another reason I haven’t blogged is a general lack of…

Change

As the summer is coming to an end for me, and I’m starting a new school on August 10th (!!!), I’ve been thinking about change a lot. As someone who’s only 13, and moved states 3 times, I’m pretty used to change. Part of it is because how much I’ve moved, but a lot of…

How Life Is Like A Jump

Jumping is a fun thing to do. Jumping on trampolines, bounce houses, beds.. it’s all fun! It’s fun because for a second you feel like your flying! Although the flying part only lasts a second, jumping is still fun. I think jumping is like life. When you jump, you start on the ground, standing, and…
