6 Non-Traditional Resolutions You Need to Make in 2015

We’re all guilty of falling victim to the unrealistic expectations we set for ourselves year after year. But this year, maybe we should try something a little different.Maybe we should set goals that go against the grain — goals that aren’t the same old same old? Maybe we should step out of out comfort zones and away from those “Eat less! Diet more! Call my sister six times a week!” rules that we inundate ourselves with?Because, let’s be honest: It’s not that those goals aren’t good. They’re just impossible to keep up with. And the instant we “fail” at them, we feel like failures. Like we can’t even keep on pace with the handful of things we’ve tried to do to make ourselves better. The domino effect sends us into a downward spiral, which leads to us eating more, dieting less and calling our sister zero times a month.So before you clink your glasses together and toast to the new year and all the things you promise to be better about, do yourself a favor and don’t. Give yourself the fre…

Resolution Regardless, Keep These 7 Things In Mind For 2015

With the New Year comes another set of resolutions, new goals and high intentions for making the upcoming 365 days the best yet. As important as resolutions are, having the right mindset and outlook on things is just as necessary for having a great year.Having a strong mentality is what you need most to stay loyal to the change you promised to make come midnight. Here are seven things to keep in mind to keep you on track this New Year and to make 2015 the best year yet.Do all you can while you can still do it.As the saying goes, “Time is of the essence.” Oftentimes, we forget to take advantage of the things that are so readily available to us or opportunities that have unlabeled expiration dates on them.We assume that what’s here now will be there always. In reality, time and opportunity can’t stay as long as we’d like them to.So, do all you can while you’re in the place and state you can do it. Whether it be running that half marathon, seeing the places and things you want to see or …

Age Is Just A Number: Maturity’s What Really Matters In Relationships

“The heart wants what the heart wants” is a cliché that couldn’t be more accurate. We truly can’t help with whom we fall in love. Love doesn’t care if someone is older or younger, but we certainly do.Society holds a negative stigma regarding age differences, which causes people to obsess over it. And, that is why when we start developing feelings for people outside of our age brackets, we think our feelings are wrong.We often put up walls and flee for the mountains, but before shutting the door on the chance at love, think about your potential lover’s maturity level.If you both are on the same level of maturity, don’t let the attached age number cloud your decision.Maybe you met an older lover when you were still immature. Each person we meet has a purpose in our life.Maybe this person isn’t meant for you during your years of evolution, but you’ll come back to each other when you each hold the same mindset. Or, maybe this person was in your life at the wrong time to teach you somethin…

5 Reasons children of 2014 Will Never Understand The Glory Of Playing Outside

Word on the street is that if a kid was born in the 90s, there is no holding him or her back (or shutting him or her up) on reminiscing about the glory days of playing outside.A much foreign concept to the developing Generation could be considered one of the last generations to spend its carefree, after-school hours immersed in the great outdoors, away from electronics.Here are the top five reasons playing outside as a child has major benefits:1. Fresh Air, Fresh MindsAs a child, nothing compared to bragging about how many pairs of pants you’ve lost due to dirt stains or championing a game of four square. Playing outside offered the chance to stimulate our imaginations to create silly games and obstacle courses.Not only did the outdoors allow us to exercise physically, but also mentally. Can’t you recall how difficult it was to think on-the-spot for TV tag? And, not to sound like a nagging mother, but staring at the TV for far too long as a child can actually rot your brain.The Mayo C…

7 Ways To Master The Art Of Bouncing Back When Life Knocks You Down

Life can be a complex journey with many ups and downs. It is filled with both challenges and accomplishments.No one is successful at everything, just as no one fails at everything. We all have at least one thing we are or can be good at doing.However, when we go through challenging phases, we often dwell more on the bad experiences and end up feeling self-loathing and judgmental.Pitfalls are a part of life, whether we like it or not. What matters is that we don’t bury ourselves in the grungy old pit and decide to spend the rest of our lives there.We surely need time to come to terms with the changes that come from difficulties in life, but once the grieving phase is over, it’s important to move on.When life knocks you down, there are always two choices: Get up and move on or stay in that dark pit and live the rest of your life with resentment and regret. The latter will take you nowhere and things will probably get worse with time.So, the best option we have is to pick up the broken p…

21 Realistic New Year’s Resolutions 20-Somethings Should Strive For

To be honest, 2014 was a rough year for me; I’m sure I’m not alone with this.Thankfully, I did manage to improve on several areas of my life that helped create a more prosperous outlook for 2015. The truth is before you can shine, you have to polish yourself.You have to take the person you are, what you are, and mold yourself into what you want to be. Here are a few resolutions I worked on over the last 300+ days.Hopefully, you can find a few that appeal to you and incorporate them into your own resolutions for 2015.1. Get into shapeThis is usually everyone’s first priority.In fact, it tends to be most people’s resolution every year — year after year, after year. You’re in your mid-20s. I’m not sure what you’ve been told, but getting into shape later on won’t get easier.You’re at your prime now; look like it.2. Eat healthierI’m not even recommending eating only healthy foods — it’s not fun. Stuff your face once in a while because it gives you comfort.However, you need to start eating …

BAACK ON? Karrueche Tran CHEERS ON Chris Brown At Jhene Aiko's Concert, Chris TWEETS "She Look Amazing..."

Will Chris and Karrueche be back in one another's embrace by Christmas? We suspect so. Find out why inside...Just a few days ago, we witnessed Chris embark on a super nasty "takedown" of Kae on social media, which he promptly apologized for. We thought she had smartened up with her posts about FINALLYleaving. Now, he's being flirty again. SMH....Two incidents went down this week. First, both Chris and Kae were spotted at Pinz Bowling Center with their friends two nights ago. They weren't photographed together, but both "Checked in" via Instagram. Coincidence? Maybe.Then, Kae and her friends went to see Kae's homie Jhene Aiko at the Nokia in LA last night (above) and Chris was on the bill. He hit the stage to perform "Drunk Texting." Coincidence? Maybe.Spies report that the two met up for a late-night conversation after the concert as well. Coincidence? Maybe. Then this tweet appeared (and was deleted per usual) from Chris' Twitter time…


"Teen Mom" star Ryan Edwards was involved in a scary car crash Friday in Tennessee that left him bloody on the side of the road -- and despite the gory scene ... he managed to avoid any major injuries.Chattanooga PD officials tell TMZ ... 2 vehicles crashed into each other head-on last night -- and right now the cause is still under investigation.However multiple witness tells us they saw Ryan swerve across double yellow lines -- while apparently speeding -- and smash into another woman's vehicle.The other driver was taken to the hospital by ambulance. Ryan refused ... instead opting to have a friend pick him up at the crash site.


The haters are really gonna hate this one ... last night Taylor Swift celebrated her 25th birthday in New York and every big celeb in town wanted to join in -- including one really sexy craphead.Taylor partied with Beyonce, Jay Z, Sam Smith and girl group HAIM ... as well Karlie Kloss -- the hot model she's DEFINITELY NOT DATING -- and Justin Timberlake wearing a poop emoji mask.It's unclear where they were  ... but it looks like Taylor's home.She wins.

11 Little Known Laws Of Karma (that Will Change Your Life)

What is Karma? Karma is the Sanskrit word for action. It is equivalent to Newton’s law of ‘every action must have a reaction’. When we think, speak or act we initiate a force that will react accordingly. This returning force maybe modified, changed or suspended, but most people will not be able eradicate it.This law of cause and effect is not punishment, but is wholly for the sake of education or learning.A person may not escape the consequences of his actions, but he will suffer only if he himself has made the conditions ripe for his suffering. Ignorance of the law is no excuse whether the laws are man-made or universal.To stop being afraid and to start being empowered in the worlds of karma and reincarnation, here is what you need to know about karmic laws.
- "As you sow, so shall you reap". This is also known as the "Law of Cause and Effect".
- Whatever we put out in the Universe is what comes back to us.
- If what we want is Happiness, Peace,…

Myles Munroe quotes

Wow,am shocked that this great mam of God is no more with us but i still believe his words will,these are some of his quotes i loved,hope its beneficial  to you.                                                                            "The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but a life without a purpose."-Solid character will reflect itself in consistent behavior, while poor character will seek to hide behind deceptive words and actions.-People generally fall into one of three groups: the few who make things happen, the many who watch things happen, and the overwhelming majority who have no notion of what happens. Every person is either a creator of fact or a creature of circumstance. He either puts color into his environment, or, like a chameleon, takes color from his environment.

Why Being Uncertain About Your Future Is The Way To Claim Happiness

By Moose A
From a young age, we are aware we need to have long-term plans in order to succeed. Growing up, the most common question overbearing relatives asked me was, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” It was as if knowing the answer was a pressing concern for a 10-year-old to have.Consequently, as I grew older, I grew increasingly nervous about the fact that I didn’t feel interested enough in anything to dedicate my future life to it.Every time I reached what I considered to be a critical juncture in my life, from which courses to take in high school to which colleges I should apply, there was always a lingering sense of anxiety. I didn’t know what it was all leading to.Ultimately, I decided that being a doctor was a career worth pursuing. After all, I was certainly smart enough, and my family and friends often commented that it was a very respectable and stable life for one to pursue.It was only by a cruel twist of fate that the prestigious health science program I had my he…

Spend The Weekend Staying Inside A Full-Size Working Airplane (Photos)

ites anymore?Maybe you just need to book a room perched on top of a mountain somewhere… Or maybe a beachfront property?But, either of those wouldn’t be nearly as cool as a bunking inside a real, fully-functioning commercial jet!If you’ve ever booked somewhere to stay using Airbnb, you know your options are everything but limited.The fact that you can actually stay in an airplane proves just that. The travel site is offering a two to four person stay on a KLM airplane.In case you were wondering, yes, a master bedroom is included. As a matter of fact, everything you’d find in a home can be found on this plane.As for the plane’s location, you’d have to be OK with traveling to Amsterdam; the plane will sit on one of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol’s runways.What are you waiting for? Book your stay for a night between November 28-30.Instead of booking a stay at a luxury hotel, get creative. Why not book a KLM commercial jet for you and up to three other people?
