6 Ways you can Live your Life This Year

I can’t tell you guys how much I love this ❤

The Girl with Ironwings


Just this once, quit the loads of resolutions. Fix your mind with one little thing: Live your life and try your best.

Nothing else matters, see? You may have one hundred issues of anxiety, depression, fears, doubts, paranoia etc. But, they don’t get to decide your life. You do. 

It’s YOUR life, and something only you can control. Feelspretty great, eh? That’s how you’ve always been. Pretty great. Don’t let the grey world stop you from shining bright.

So this time, don’t force rules on yourself. They’re not going to work in the long run. So this 2018, the focus is going to be on you. 

I’m not going to tell you how to live. I’m not perfect and neither are you. So here are 6 pointers to keep in mind while we live through this year.

do what you love.

Can I say ‘Preach’?

the poetess with clipped wings

Do what you love…bake burnt-ish cookies, write fragmented poetry and unfinished stories, sing a little off-key, play the guitar slowly and clumsily, and braid your hair (forgetting a few strands.)

Wear what you want. Graphic tees or long skirts. Blazers or high heels. Dresses or jeans or sweat pants. That shade of red lipstick that makes you feel empowered. That headband you’ve had since you can remember.

Because, life isn’t about fashion trends all the time.

Learn about what interests you. Famous celebrities, the capitals of the world, economic growth, or the Guinness world records. Learn about Joan of Arc, or Mayan civilization. Learn how to dance the waltz, or how to make a arrangement of flowers. Learn how to file paperwork, or how some stars are farther away.

Because, the unconventional things are worth your time.

Be yourself, heavenly and devilish.

Love wasn’t afraid to ride the bus with me.
And I knew, I just must be searching the wrong classrooms, just must be checking the wrong hallways, she was there, I was sure of it.
If only I could find him.

Nine things I would like to tell to every teenage girl:

One, the world is trying to kill you. It is trying to do this by stealing your voice. Kill it back!

Two, you are the best thing in every room. You’ll notice I did not say “the prettiest”. You are also the prettiest thing in every room, but that shit doesn’t matter! That shit is the world trying to kill you! Continue reading “9 Things I Would Like To Tell To Every Teenage Girl – Melissa Newman-Evans”
