The Celibacy Vow

Society now and days has shaped the minds of our generation into thinking that having sex is normal, hooking up is okay and you are free to live your life the way you see fit, but what does it say about celibacy? Now don’t get me wrong, it is your life and I do not approve of slut-shaming, but why are the people who decide to control their bodies shamed for their decisions?

In this new accepting culture, you would think that anything you want to do with your body is acceptable, but going against the norm is not.

I’m saying all of this from experience. I recently decided to make a  change and become celibate. In return, this decision greatly improved my spiritual life. I found that if I wanted to continue to improve that lifestyle, I would have to give up my old one. This meant to stop drinking, smoking (hookah and weed), stop going to parties and stop having sex. While doing this, I was replacing the need of partying and drinking with other things in my life like devotionals, church, volunteering and doing things that would positively influence my life rather than hinder it. I found that in doing this, my “friends” took notice. I was no longer invited to parties or even asked to hang out in between classes. My “friends” wanted nothing to do with me as if my new lifestyle choices were contagious. They wanted nothing to do with the “church girl” because I had made the conscious decision to stop doing what everyone else loved and start being dedicated to the one person I do love: God. Of course I tried to include them on this journey with me and some agreed to go to church with me, but after the first time became their last time, I knew it was time to move on. Everyone has different life paths and I just started to find my own.

It sounds sad, but in this loss, I truly gained my own piece of mind and was able to thrive in my spiritual life.

All of this is to say if your celibate, and not just from sex (it can be from anything that society deems normal), then keep doing what you’re doing. You will find that people will not approve of what you’re decisions, but at the end of the day, if you’re doing whats right you will gain so much more freedom and piece of mind. And you will forget you were ever missing something in the first place.

Miley Cyrus: A turn for the worst?

A couple of years ago myself and many young girls were excited about this new show airing  called Hannah Montana. It was about a girl living two lives. In her one life, she was a big superstar, and in the other, she was a normal high school girl.

If you think about it, that’s kind of how Miley portrays herself in real life. Once she started to break away from her role on Disney, she wanted to show the world that she wasn’t this little girl anymore. And that she did. Rumors say that ever since she cut her hair, she’s been on a wild streak, but I beg to differ. Does anyone remember the Kids Choice Awards where she pole danced? Here is a reminder:

I think after that, she was giving us a warning sign of the “new Miley”. Since then, she has started smoking weed with artists like Wiz Khalifa, she cut off her long locks (for a good cause), dyed her hair blonde, started  twerking (as Kevin Hart says moving her pelvis really fast) and made a song produced by Hip-Hop producer Mike WiLL Made It.

To make her image even better, she decided to sing with Robin Thicke at the VMA’s to a song entitled “Blurred Lines”. The performance truly shocked everyone at the awards show ,especially when she started to hump a foam finger and twerk on Robin Thicke who is happily married to Paula Patton.  Miley definitely got world wide attention and she still has some supporters. All we can do is sit back, watch, and try not to get embarrassed as Miley’s song clearly tells us that she can’t stop.

If you haven’t watched the VMA’s here is the performance:
