As teenagers, we still have so much life left to live.  I’ve always wondered how people at the end of their lives feel looking back on their own lives.  Are they filled with happiness?  Or regret and unfulfillment?  I found a post online that listed a few life lessons from an 80-year-old.  I found them inspiring and wanted to share some of them!

  • Look people in the eye.” Chelsea Crockett - Bible verseEye contact is important and the ability to have that is a good quality to have!  It tells people that you’re really interested in the conversation.  This is something our generation needs to learn how to do!
  • “Become the most positive and enthusiastic person you know.”  I’ve always loved the quote, “be the person you want to meet.”  We should all strive to be the best person we can be!  
  • “Make it a habit to do nice things for people who will never find out.” Doing something nice for someone is easy, but doing it without getting any recognition is what we can often struggle with.  Try it sometime! 
  • “Loosen up. Relax. Nothing is as important as it first seems.”  I live by this advice!  It is so important to let go of things and know that you’re probably stressing over nothing anyway. 
  • “Be bold and courageous.”  There’s a verse in the Bible that says the same thing.  Take risks and get out of your comfort zone!  Life’s too short to let opportunities pass you by.

What lessons have you learned so far throughout your life?  Share with me below!

Love, Chelsea

If we compare dating nowadays to how it used to be, there are too many differences to count.  In our society, “talking” is the new dating.  Even marriage rates have dramatically decreased since decades ago!  There are so many dating pointers we could learn from couples that have been together for years.  Here are some old fashioned dating tips that should be put into action today!

  • Put down the phone!  That might sound lChelsea Crockett - Date Listike something your mom tells you but trust me, it’s so refreshing!  Putting your phone down during dinner with your boyfriend or girlfriend is so much nicer than watching each other stare at your screens. 
  • Talk face to face.  Talking out your problems in person instead of over the phone or through text solves things much easier.  Technology is great, but being able to talk about touchy subjects face to face will make you much more comfortable in your relationship.
  • Go on real dates.  This doesn’t have to be every weekend!  Picking a night once a month or even a couple nights is a good way to keep your relationship fun and a priority!  You can even make a list like the one on the right.
  • Meet each other’s parents.  Meeting the fam is a good way to show you’re serious about each other!  It also shows your polite and committed to your relationship.
  • Commit, commit, commit.  I can’t stress this enough!  If you’re in a relationship with someone, devote yourself to them and only them.

If you follow these steps, they might help you better your relationship and make it last much longer!

Love, Chels

What To Do With Clothes You Don’t Want Anymore!

Hello Lovelies,

            Dealing with clothes you don’t like anymore or ones that don’t fit can be a hassle.  You feel bad not wearing them and they take up room in your closet.  Sometimes, old clothes can just keep piling up!  Luckily, there are many things you can do with clothing you don’t want anymore!

  • Cut it up!  If you have a shirt that you still like, but is a little too tight, try altering it yourself.  Cut the sleeves so it is a tank top and make the neck a v-neck.  This will automatically make the top looser.  If it is a little tight in the waist either try making a small slit at the bottom of each side at the seam or wash the shirt and stretch it out yourself.  Don’t dry it!
  • If you feel like making a little money, take your clothes to a resell-it shop.  Although you won’t make a lot of money off your old clothes, it’s better than letting them sit in your closet.  Make a small profit instead of letting them go to waste!
  • Donate!!!  Donating your clothing to organizations like the Salvation Army or to a family in need is such a great feeling.  If you don’t need the clothes anymore, then give them to someone who does! Chelsea Crockett- donating clothes

                 Don’t let old clothes go to waste at the bottom of your closet.  There are plenty of other options!  Start today and clean up your wardrobe!
