Thinking this way, however, will leave you discontented and with a lack of meaningful relationships. The key to friendship isn’t to focus on who is being a good friend to you. Instead, true selflessness is found when you

Favorite Christian Youtube Channels

Do you ever wish you had a stronger faith or a closer relationship with God? I do — all the time! That is why this year I’m mindfully growing my relationship with God through baby steps. They say that you become who you surround yourself with. Although I have Christian friends I do not spend as much time with them as I wish I could. I realized that throughout my day I binge-watched Youtubers. After watching so many different channels I came to an understanding that the Youtubers I was watching were making an influence in my life similar to

How-To Have A Growth Mindset

Here’s the cold hard truth: Many women have grown up being told their talents are fixed and limited. It can be a huge battle to believe in ourselves and remove the idea that we do not have the ability to be great. I’ve read multiple books, attended workshops, and listened to the podcasts of some of the most empowered women in the world. I realized every single one of these successful women had 1 trait in common – the growth mindset.  Bottom line, it’s the mindset that sets successful women apart from all others. In essence, there are two types of mindsets we typically

You’ll feel accomplished when you learn about a new scholarly topic. 4. Check over your resumé. Anything need to be updated or polished? Do that now, it can come in handy when opportunity comes

Fixation With Celebrities

My advice to people, but especially kids, who are invested in celebrities, be they actors, musicians, bloggers, youtubers, authors, whatever, is to keep your distance. No matter how happy their content makes you, no matter how strong the pull of a special interest/hyperfixation/obsession might be, it’s important to step back every so often. So many people are depressed, anxious, and feel less than because of their fixation on people who they have never even met. Do you find yourself following them on all forms of social media? Do you follow their friends and family, who might not even make content themselves? Do
