Ten things to do in 2017:

1. Take it a day at a time. You don’t have to know what you’re doing the next day or even the next hour. I’ve learned that the more you think in the future, the shorter the day seems and the months fly past you and you’re left feeling discontent and unsatisfied. It’s almost like everything has been in a blur, and you find yourself saying, “the year went by so fast”, even though you haven’t accomplished much. So do everything in the moment of ‘now’, and cherish each minute like it’s the last minute you have.

2. Let it go. You know nothing is going to change, because you can’t change people unless they truly want to and you can’t change the past either, and the sooner you realize this, you will spend more time being happy than in a constant battle with your mind and your heart. They need to rest too.

3. Take risks. If you never take any, the moment that turned out for the worst could have turned out for the best. This works vice-versa as well, but either way, you will learn from these experiences. You won’t forget how rapidly your heart was beating in these moments and how electric you felt. It will be worth it in the end, trust me.

4. Call up that person that you didn’t spend enough time getting to know, simply because you were too distracted with somebody else or just didn’t feel like you’d become something more than acquaintances. Greet strangers and embrace the idea of diversity. Ask questions about different cultures, morals, ideas, beliefs; educate yourself as much as you can.

5. Go ahead and wear that outfit you keep telling yourself that it doesn’t look good on you. You bought it because you liked it, yes? So, show it to the whole damn world. If you do it with a smile and confidently squared shoulders—even better. You are beautiful.

6. Instead of procrastinating and wallowing in self-pity, get up and do something. Sitting around is not going to do much but make you feel horrible, and you’ll create scenarios that may not even exist or be as big in your head that will cause matters to become worse. You want this to be your year of explosive progress? Set goals and strive to achieve them. You want to look back at the end of the year and say, “I did good”.

7. Spend more time with your family or friends. Build a support system so strong, that you will never feel lonely. In fact, this support system will lead you to feeling content even when you are alone, because you won’t feel the constant need to either be with someone or have somebody who loves you, because you know you’ll have people who love you and the more love you surround yourself with, the easier it becomes to love yourself too.

8. Be kind always and be angry when you need to be. Stand up for the ideas that you believe in and don’t back down from them just because you have a different opinion. Learn to love the sound of your voice when it bounces off the walls of a classroom full of people, because your voice has the power to change a million minds. Remember, you are allowed to feel whatever it is you feel.

9. Go on more road trips or just take a few minutes to be outside by yourself. Inhale and exhale the air around you. Watch the stars, the sunset, the sunrise, the birds flying in the sky, the cars passing by. Walk in the rain sometimes without an umbrella, instead of running. Let the sunlight soak your skin more often. God, isn’t the world itself beautiful?

10. Be faithful. This is the year you hoped to be better. Don’t let anything stop you from achieving that, because you are limitless as long as you believe yourself to be.

anonymous asked:

Do you have any prompts for like.... places to go or fun things to do on a road trip?

I have been on more road trips than I care to count, so let’s see what I can do (note, most of these are based on real things that have happened to me):

  • No we are not taking a 2 hour detour to see the world’s largest rocking chair AU
  • I’ve been awake for 20 hours and i’ve had nothing but gas station coffee and sour gummy worms I will pay you $20 for that apple AU
  • We stopped on the side of the road to sleep but I just heard a noise outside what do we do? AU
  • You were hitchhiking and I picked you up but you want to go where? AU
  • I’ve driven this route 200 times before and your farm used to have a silo shaped like a tomato, what happened? AU
  • Look you seem very nice but you are the 20th fireworks store I’ve been to on this highway do you have any paper lanterns? AU
  • We make fun of every GOD IS REAL sign we see wow there are a lot AU
  • I’d rather look at your stupid face than spend 1 more second looking at all this corn, it’s your turn to drive AU
  • You dared me to go to the Adult Superstore we passed but wow this is really underwhelming AU
  • I took a wrong turn somewhere can you give me directions? AU
  • What do you mean I’m in Iowa I started in Ohio and was supposed to go South! AU
  • 5 hours in the car with nothing but Christian Rock and Country on the radio please tell me you can sing AU
  • Pssh 5 hour car ride is nothing, you should hear about my trip to Yellowstone AU
  • I can’t sleep in the car please entertain me AU

Hope these help! ~Lucy

miyakokurono  asked:

Can i request a Road trip hc with the RFA please☺

This idea is soooo cute! For a general scenario: In each respective RFA member- MC is dating them! I thought it would be cuter that way!( ´ ▽ ` )

You guys can imagine wherever they’re going to! I left it up to yall!


Zen

- At first, he isn’t happy at all. Sure, all of you are going to go somewhere fun! Explore a new place!

-…But in Jumin’s car.

- The jerk wouldn’t even let him drive at first! He had to get it through to him that it would defeat the whole purpose of a road trip if he didn’t get to drive!

- Seven also didn’t help with the ‘I welcome death’ jokes he was spouting when he was trying to ‘support’ Zen driving.

- But after a few arguments, MC and Jaehee even popping in once or twice, Jumin finally agreed to let Zen drive

- Seven tried hijacking the radio, but Zen already filled it with CD’s he burned himself, some sort of mixmash of cheesy songs for him to play for you (ignoring the rest of the people in the car), songs from musicals he had preformed in, and his taste in music

- It…Was a very weird set of CD’s. He tried making a good playlist…He tried.

- Otherwise, the road trip goes pretty well. There’s lots of pitstops thanks to Yoosung and Seven, but Zen just uses the chance to take selfies with you and update his insta.

- (There was an argument, however, when he realized Jumin had donned on a set of noise canceling headphones somewhere along the trip)

Jumin

- He is so confused when you want to take a long road trip with the RFA, let alone with you driving. It takes a lot of convincing, because he doesn’t see why all of you can’t just get on a plane, but eventually with your pleading eyes you get him to agree to it.

- The car is way too fancy, but Seven and Yoosung love it. Zen complains a bit, talking about how he doesn’t want to ride in something so damn expensive, but the others finally get him to shush and enjoy it a bit.

- Jumin sits beside you, a bit anxious the whole time. He trusts your driving, he does! He just doesn’t trust the other drivers. He’s holding your knee for a while, until you get out of the city and on the highway

- And soon, he’s fallen asleep completely. He usually sleeps on the plane and such for business trips! He felt so relaxed, hearing you hum along with the CD’s you brought, he just slipped into sleep.

- It’s really cute, later on, when you wake him up for a pitstop and he’s wildly confused for a moment, before remembering the road trip. Zen’s the one that snaps him to reality pretty quickly about that

- But enjoy trying to get him to try fast food/diner foods. It’s going to take a group effort to get him to eat that.

Jaehee

- Jaehee is probably the most prepped. She tries to drive the whole time, but you often have to interfere so she can get some rest.

- She definitely took Jumin up on the offer of a van from him, because she didn’t want to risk her own car having issues after a long trip

- She actually packed some healthy snacks for everyone, but unfortunately no one but the two of you gets control over the radio. Which usually means mainly music from plays/musicals Zen has starred in (Who also belts out the songs much to Jaehee’s amusement)

- For Seven she forces a strict No Weird Pranks rule. No pranking the others, no goading the others to fight- He has to be on his best behavior or else he’s getting no soda or chips

-The only one who knows how to read maps if the GPS gets you guys lost

- If Jumin complains about Zen, or the places she chooses to eat at (or her lunches she packed), she gives him a very long glare and he slowly shuts up

- She tries to hold hands with you at times, but Seven coos at the both of you and she gets so embarrassed

-Actually enjoys the trip, but suggests next time it just try to be the both of you (and maybe Zen) instead of the rest.

Yoosung

-Next to Jaehee, he is the most prepped. He’s got lunches planned (Not a wide variety but he is trying), some sunscreen and sunglasses, bandaids, even a blanket and pillow incase anyone wants to nap!

- He doesn’t have a wide selection of music, so he just opted for everyone to bring in a CD of their own to listen to!

- Thankfully, he doesn’t have to borrow a car from Jumin- His parents were kind enough to let him borrow the family van, as long as he was careful and fulled it up when he was done! (And if he called his mom every day for a few weeks)

- He drives decently, but sometimes simple road rules get him a bit flustered, so you gently have to remind him that he desperately needs to turn his turn signal on when switching lanes and such

- He really likes driving, and going to rest stops and getting stuff from vending machines, but sometimes he wants to catch a small nap or just rest, so the two of you switch sometimes

- He really likes trying to hold your hand, but sometimes he gets too flustered, so its rare, but when he does he always gets such cute dorky smile on his face

- You do have to keep an eye on Seven. Sometimes he starts trying to get Zen and Jumin to fight, or trick Yoosung, so you may have to threaten no soda if he tries to do too much!

Seven

- Seven, wildly enough, is the only one prepared for the whole thing. Well, in the ‘right’ way.

- He’s got loads of snacks, drinks, tunes, and the all windows rolled down (until both Zen and Jumin complain)

- His CD’s are a mixture of popular, weird, and calm songs. Stuff that everyone can try to enjoy! Well, maybe not Jumin, but he’s a bit interested in what people are listening to nowadays

- He belts out the songs as he drives down in a car Jumin supplied to fit all of them, his hand tangled with yours, sometimes giving you a big cheesy smile when it’s a silly love song that comes on. 

- Only eats at places that serve Dr. Pepper, though. Him and Yoosung are so excited to eat out at fast food places, or good pizza places, and the rest of the group S u f f e r s.

- He does try to trick/prank the others sometimes: Pretending the car is messing up, that someone is tailing them- a lot of silly things until everyone starts complaining

-If Jumin and Zen argue, he jerks the car a bit to get them to hush (and for his own amusement)

-Sometimes, late at night when everyone but the two of you are asleep, he pulls over and wants to step outside and look at the stars with you


I’d like to think they’d all get along well, even Jumin and Zen a bit (only bickering about small things, like Zens constant selfies or Jumin’s complaints about the music), and overall they’d have small conversation and laugh a bit, and enjoy wherever they were driving to! More Rfa road trips in the future!!!
