Read This If You’re 23 And Lost

So youre 23 and you have no idea what comes next.

First of all, congratulations. You’re ahead of the game.

Do you know how long most people wait to realize that theyre lost? Do you know many people never do? Do you understand how many people go through their entire lives aimlessly floundering; only to realize at the very end of it that none of what they did was what they wanted? Its a lot more than youd think. And most of those people thought they had it all figured out at twenty-three.

After all, its not so hard to be found when you are twenty-three years old. There are infinite hoards of people who will tell you what to do and where to go. There are endless opportunities for you to make money and prosper. All you have to do is let go of what you want for yourself. You just have to subscribe to living someone elses dream.

If you are lost at twenty-three, you are exactly where you need to be right now. I know that it is not where you would like stuck in the middle of uncertainty and failure and your own inconsistent desires. I know its not the place you thought youd be when you screamed, Cheers! on your 20th birthday in anticipation of the next exciting decade. I know that you would rather be just about anywhere but here except you cant figure out where to go and it is driving you slowly up the wall. I know what its like to be twenty-three and lost. I know that its the worst place on earth.

But the fact that you are lost right now tells you something. It tells you that your life as it has been is not your life as it will be. It tells you that youre not the kind of person who settles for okay or sort of good enough. The fact that you are lost tells you that you would rather be living in the middle of uncertainty than dead-set on something that makes you consistently miserable. And Im not sure if you realize how rare that really is. How few people still give a shit about doing something meaningful with their lives. How many more people we need who are just like you lost and reeling, yet still pushing themselves to do better.

You are lost because you care. Youre lost because youre passionate. Youre lost because you know that there is more inside of you than what youre currently offering the world and that is a brilliant thing to know.

At 23, JK Rowling was broke. Tina Fey was working at the Y.M.C.A. Oprah had just gotten fired from her first job as a TV reporter and Walt Disney had declared bankruptcy. None of these wildly successful individuals could have predicted what was in store for them next but the one thing they all had in common was that they knew that there was more to them than what they were doing at the time. And thats what you have in common with them, too. You know that theres a bigger, better version of yourself to bring to life. You just havent gotten there yet.

So lets look at where to go from here. If your life is lying splintered on the floor, which pieces do you want to pick up and keep? Which do you leave? What do you choose not to re-create now that youre given the chance to start over? Because that is exactly the chance that you have at twenty-three. You get to strip your life down to its bare bones and build the whole thing back up from scratch. Its not the easiest thing to do. But its the best thing. The bravest thing. The most rewarding thing and the kind of thing you only get the opportunity to do through being lost.

So right now, let yourself be a little bit lost. Because you dont get found by staying comfortable. You dont get found by running away. You dont get found by fighting your deepest impulses and you definitely dont get found by hiding out. You get found by doing exactly what it is that you are doing right now which is delving right into the heart of your life and fighting like hell for what matters.

If youre never lost you never get found.

And youre the kind of person worth searching for.

Beauty pageants are embarrassing – even if you name the right winner | Jessica Valenti

Such events are nothing more than an opportunity to ogle gorgeous, scantily-clad women and pit them against each other so why do they still exist?

The most awkward moment of the Miss Universe pageant this week wasnt host Steve Harvey naming the wrong winner on live television – its that in 2015, a pageant still exists that parades women around in bikinis for the honor of winning a sash and tiara. Thats the true embarrassment.

That Harvey couldnt distinguish one pretty woman for another is almost poetic, because in pageants like Miss Universe, Miss America and Miss USA, women arent individuals anyway. Theyre literal symbols unnamed besides the state or country theyre there to represent. Its the ultimate display of women as interchangeable, vying for the right to be the shiniest object in the room.

The contests are an antiquated reminder of exactly what we dont want for women, and they should have no place in our future.

The notion that beauty pageants are anything more than an opportunity to ogle gorgeous, scantily-clad women and pit them against each has long been debunked. Despite long-standing claims that pageants like Miss America are a major source of scholarships for young women, the truth is that they offer only a fraction of the money that they claim they do. Women who participate are also much more likely to spend money than make money on the endeavor the cost of dresses, hair and makeup, entrance fees and more are the responsibility of the contestants alone.

The pageants themselves in addition to the explicitly vacuous swimsuit competition have policies and rules that make clear womens worth is very much dependent on her sexuality and ability to perform a narrow model of proper femininity. It was only in 1999 that Miss America finally did away with a purity rule that banned contestants from being divorced or having had an abortion, for example, and the pageant still has strict morality clauses.

In 2002, Miss North Carolina Rebekah Revels was forced to turn in her crown after it came out that her boyfriend had taken topless pictures of her, and after being crowned Miss USA in 2006, Kentuckys Tara Conner was embroiled in a scandal because she went to clubs, drank alcohol and perhaps had a few sexual escapades. How dare she!

Then co-owner of Miss USA, Donald Trump publicly forgave Conner and sent her to rehab. Ive always been a believer in second chances, he said at the time. Later, Trump reported that he was considering giving his permission for Conner to pose in Playboy. Showing off your body is fine, it seems, so long as the man in charge gives you his blessing.

Despite the progress women have made over the years, there are still plenty of reminders of how far we still have to go. And feminists are still fighting against some of the same big issues like the wage gap and sexual violence that they were decades ago.

But it seems strange that during a time when we may soon see the first female president and when feminism is more culturally powerful than ever before, that we cannot seem to figure out a way just to do away with something as obviously misogynist and retrograde as beauty pageants.

Writing Your Blog’s Success.

 

 

 

writing a blog

Be conversational – Writing a blog is not the same as crafting an academic treatise, so complex, elaborate text is out. Imagine you are talking to a group of friends. Write in a friendly way – do not talk down to them and keep up a conversational tone at all times. That way, you’ll encourage your readers to write back, and that is the true measure of your blog’s success.

Although writing a blog may be relatively easy for many, optimizing the impact of your blog is a many fingered process. A blog is a website in itself and if you’re using it to promote your product or business, it needs to reflect the professionalism and approach developed on your webpage. Constant updating and search engine optimization are key to keeping your blog at the top of the different search engines. And ongoing submissions to blog hubs as well as internet directories will keep your blog “popping up” for related internet searches.

Writing a blog can be done by people who have some useful information to share, but they need to make an effort to help their readers properly. Photos and videos are going to help you create your own blog that will make a very big impact on the readers, but you have to make sure you do not cross the line when it comes to the content you will post.
