Those are my five favourites of the week! Have a great weekend, xo!
WOW! I honestly don't know why this doesn't have many views!? This video is so perfect and so empowering to us women all over!
I actually saw this commercial first on the television. It actually took me by surprise of how emotional I got towards the end. I was literally standing up clapping for the message that was portrayed by Covergirl. Like it is too perfect!
Take a look. It will only take 1 minute from your busy schedule. Go on, I'll wait!
Firstly, the media is always on celebrities asses about how they look and what they wear; and unfortunately, social media, such as Ads, carry on this pressure into society! From makeup commercials, to even car commercials, it seems as though skinny is the standards in our society.
I would be lying if I said that I never get conscious about my body. I am someone who didn't have the luxury of being born thin like most girls. Yes I have boobs, and an ass... and a little love handles (don't judge me..). I am still human, and having celebrities weight constantly being judged around the world, makes me wonder who the heck is judging me and my body size?
Watch the video one more time... Go on, I'll wait. Did you notice that each women were different? The fact that this video had different ethnicities, shapes, and sizes, makes it even more meaning and relatable to us all over. EVERY single one of us CAN do something and anything!
The second thing I grasped from this video, is something personal that you've all probably experienced in a different context. I cannot begin to tell you how many times I've joined a team/sport/organized dominated by men. The amount of times they looked down upon my ideas is ridiculous. I always had something to prove.
Whether it was growing up in karate, I always wanted to prove to all the jerks that I can punch harder then any of them, better yet, I can beat them in any sparing match any day. Or whether it was in cadet, and being 1/30 females in a male dominated organization, no one ever thought that I, out of 200 people, could attain that number 1 position.
You thought I couldn't do it; boy did I prove all of you wrong.
As women we need to remember that we cannot let stereotypes define what we can and cannot do. Absolutely not. Why? Because Girls Can.
Thank you Covergirl for this empowering video! I will now be walking around campus with new this profound confidence! aha!
1. I hope I get accepted to the Nursing Program. This is probably a wish I'm going to be listing until I receive my acceptance letter. Don't get me wrong, I love the psychology program that I am already enrolled in at my current university, but I think I will have more of a future with a nursing diploma.
2. Ace my anthro midterm tomorrow! I know ... it sucks. Today we are back at school, and I already have a midterm tomorrow. The teachers should know by now that students will not be productive during their first week off from school! ... so I gotta get my act together.
3. Finish and my Child Development paper. It is due this Thursday, and I already have a 78% in this course. Trying to bring up my mark over an 80, so I am confident walking into the exam in April.
4. Sleep. I've been up way to look and partying with my friends for most of the week I was off from school. I need to catch up on my sleep so that I am able to perform well in school
5. Go back to the gym. Didn't really go to the gym this week... So I need to get back to my regular routine, and stick to it.... properly.
Wow ... writing all my wishes just makes me feel like I wasted my week off from school doing absolutely nothing productive... oppps. Well we all need a break once in a while.Well what are some of your wishes this week? Don't forget to link up!

The other night I was unable to fall asleep. I guess it was because of all the stress and anxiety running through my mind about the things I should be doing with my week off from school. So as I laid in bed, I decided to search for an answer.... an answer to what? I would tell you, but I didn't even know what I was searching for.
Happiness? How to stop stressing? How to fall asleep faster? I was searching, but I didn't know what I was searching for...
Then I somehow came across this powerful video on youtube that I have this strong urge to share with you all. I found this video to be so incredible because I've never saw God's love expressed in the form of falling plates.
Please take a few minutes to watch it... I'll wait! No rush.
Powerful isn't it? Just makes you look at Jesus's love for us and the world from such a different, yet amazing interpretation. Sometimes it is so easy for us to lose ourselves in the many things/events that are going on in our waking life. It is important to relax and just look towards God, for he has the ability to comfort us from all our stresses. How can we love others, if we are unable to show our gratitude and love for Him and all that he has done for us?
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love - 1 John 4:8

As this video literally just takes a few minutes from your time, it can have a huge impact on everything you see or do. Let's not forget why and how we are all here today.
Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus - Romans 8:1
"Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." - Isaiah 41:10
God is always with us, from the worst of times to the best of times. He never leaves our side. Think of it as though he is there holding our hand, giving us the strength, every step of the way. Whether we realize it or not, he is helping us to be brave. We shouldn't fear for the worst, because God wouldn't allow us to go through something he know we can't handle. There's something more that needs to be learnt here.
He is not giving up on us, and we shouldn't give up on ourselves. Going through the worst of times is the best way to learn about yourself. You could learn how patient you are, or even how much faith you have in God and others around you.
"And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever." - John 14:16
Jesus is here, praying for us to our God for us to have the Holy Spirit by our side. By us simply not forgetting about His love, and believing that he can help comfort us, especially during the worst of times, He is always saying that he will always be with us, forever.
