As a current college student, I know all about what I’m “supposed” to do. There is a list of things I should be doing for future employers to notice me, expectations I need to meet and organizations I need to be a part of to “set myself apart.” I’m using quotations because I find this stuff to be humorous. We follow so closely behind the group mentality.
All last semester, I was feeling this pressure to stack my schedule with extra curricular activities and events. Although those can be great and super helpful, they are not your only key to success, which I learned like 10 minutes ago. Okay, maybe longer than that but my point is that you do not have to follow the same path as everyone. Actually, you shouldn’t be doing that. Everyone else around you, especially in college, is taking that same route. What you should be doing is attending events that intrigue your personal interests and passions. You should be taking opportunities that help you apply your skills and grow them.
I’m tired of hearing women be down on themselves and their bodies. Your body is a gift, it is a machine that carries you through this crazy life. You need to love it and treat it with care. It’s time to get serious here on PYM…
Ladies, I’m serious. Your body is so fragile and it’s time to debunk some of these theories you have in your head about having a “perfect” body.
No one has a perfect body, not even the celebrities or Instagram influencers you swoon over. We all have our own flaws and insecurities, even the people that you think have perfect bodies also have flaws. Here’s the truth of the matter, most females have insecurities when it comes to our bodies. Thanks to society, we’ve been taught that our body + size defines our worth and beauty. Ehhh…WRONG.
Hello Beautiful Humans,
Today, I wanted to touch on a subject I have been personally asked about a lot, which is my relationship. I’m definitely no expert when it comes to love, I don’t think anyone is though. I only want to share my perspective because unlike the typical young college girl, I have a different take on how to run my relationship.
A few of my friends have asked me for advice lately and I’ve decided to just share my thoughts on some relationship specifics.
Hello Beautiful Souls,
Yoga is a practice of the mind and body, it is all about bringing awareness to the present moment through breath and movement. Yoga actually means “connection”. Many people do yoga for various reasons, some for exercise and others for mental health. I recently picked up the practice to help combat and build a relationship with my anxiety. I’ve tried a few yoga classes prior to officially joining and committing to the practice.
After bringing the practice into my everyday life, I have realized it is so much more than just an exercise or breathing. Many people believe you have to be flexible or super fit to be “good” at yoga. If you’re one of those people, you’ve got it all wrong. If you think yoga is all about being “good”, then you’re in it for the wrong reasons.
Hello Pretty People,
The new year has arrived and that means everyone is creating new intentions + goals. If you read my last post, you know what mine are. On NYE, I realized another concept we all need to adopt in 2018 – GIRLS SUPPORTING GIRLS. Girls need to not only show more self-love in the new year but they need to show more support for one another.
Girls tend to judge other girls quite easily because we are taught by society to compete with each other. Rather than saying “you go girl!”, we sometimes get defensive about good looking women. This also happens with success. When we see a girl doing all the things we dream of, we can easily judge them. This not only feeds the jealousy trait inside us but it makes us more insecure about ourselves. We too often compare ourselves to those around us, rather than just embracing who we are.
If another girl is beautiful, we do not need to get insecure about our own beauty. Another’s beauty or success does not dampen our own. We are all beautiful and successful in our own ways.
