Here’s Your Sign

If you’re feeling like everything is falling apart, please,

feel my hug,

receive my love,

know you and your life are precious

see how many people care,

hold on,

keep fighting,

forgive yourself,

stop waiting for apologizes,

ask for help,

scream,

cry,

pray,

get mad,

get furious,

tell yourself you’re done feeling this way,

tell yourself you deserve better,

tell yourself you are important,

tell yourself you have a purpose,

understand you’re not alone,

you are not the only one who has felt this way,

remember the time you were a little child

and you thought there were monsters under your bed, in your closet,

talk yourself out of that fear,

reassure that child,

be the person you want that little child to be,

now,

cry some more,

cry tears of joy,

because you have finally realized that you are worth it,

you are worth dying for,

you are worth living for,

you have worth,

you are loved,

and you will help others.

Your sad journey has ended, and now, your new adventure begins.

How boring life would be if there weren’t any battles.

Take a Deep Breath. Smile. Be Patient With Yourself. Now Go Live.

The best 4 Way to Deal With Boredom

Hey guys! It’s summer, so a lot of us are out of school. I’ve noticed I have a habit of getting bored and feeling unproductive when I’m on break, which really doesn’t help  anxiety/depression. I’ve learned a few things over the years to help myself get out of the rut.

1. Make Plans. Even going  to get coffee with a friend for 30 minutes can help me feel productive, and it gets me out of he house. Leaving the house is often half the battle.

2. Get Ready. I’ve found dressing somewhat nicely helps me to feel better in general. If hair and makeup  is your thing, doing beauty  tutorials off of Youtube is fun and time consuming (and gets your mind focused on something).

3. Clean out something. Cleaning things out really gets my mind on something and stops me from feeling gross like I do after a day of Netflix. It’s also nice because something gets done.

4. Go somewhere by yourself. Even just bringing my laptop to a coffee shop and going on Tumblr makes me feel better than doing it alone in my room. Also, I’m more likely to get work done (applications, emails, etc) if I’m not in my houseUntitled

THE SCIENTIFIC 7-MINUTE WORKOUT

The hour we usually spend at the gym is not that efficient. Sure we lift some weights and get in some cardio, but we also watch whatever is on TV, scroll around on our iPhones, and generally don’t push ourselves all that hard. Not only is this Scientific 7-Minute Workout quicker, you don’t need anything besides a chair and a wall to do it. Originally published in the American College of Sports Medicine’s Health & Fitness Journal, the workout is tough, but it’s also over in less time than it takes to even get to the gym in the first place. Each move should be done at a high intensity for 30 seconds with a 10 second break in between.

Let him go, cutie :)

You know what’s more courageous than waiting for them to come back? Letting them go.
Stop acting like a damn hero for choosing to still torment yourself for someone who clearly wasn’t worth it.

You are a soul, you were given a body to look after. If you neglect it and make some fuckboy a priority, you are failing an honourable mission and you should reconsider your actions.

They are a drug. But you are more than a lazy addict. Lying in your bed crying and writing them poetry has become second nature to you. Do you really think it’s normal that the pain feels comfortable? Hanging on is easy-now try a challenge. Get the fuck up.

Yes you will struggle. Living as a fighter means living in awareness, not letting your guard down for one second, hitting and punching any sense of sadness or memories of them. It is not for everyone, but now you can’t say I haven’t told you of it. Now it is your choice.

Be a winner, and show you had a life after him. Show you are stronger than any force on Earth. Show you were too good for him anyway, and that he left only because he couldn’t deal with so much substance. Make him realise your standards are now too high for him to ever come back. Make him afraid to even look you in the eye. Show him he has done you a favour by walking away.

But don’t do it to prove something to him. You’ll be tempted, maybe, at the beginning, but in the end you’ll only do these things for yourself. It will all be a consequence of being strong.

To be honest, I wrote this as a reminder for myself…  I refuse to be a victim. Now, I am made of steel diamonds.

5 awesome reminders for the New Year

1) Anything that has caused you pain in the previous year, eradicate it with the idea of new beginnings. Forget your past but let it go with forgiveness. You don’t deserve to have a year old brick on your back and carry it into the new born year. Your past is old and adulterated and making it right falls under the definition of restarting. You might have been at the bottom this year but an alarm has rang for you to start ascending. Destroy whatever is destroying you, rinse off the past on your fingertips for they are only providing germs, forgive the past that is draining in the sink, and produce fresh water that only the new year can bring. Do not let what’s behind you catch up because your past can only survive if you keep feeding it your anger.
2) Think about what you are changing and who are you changing for. Think about if change will be for better or for worse and who is promoting your change for the worse. You will always have a line of people who are shouting demands that request a different you. Will you listen? Why are you listening? Do you agree? Why do you not or do agree? Change requires more than just one question. You are one heartbeat away from change, but it is up to you to let that heart respond. Change for the better, change for yourself, change because change exists, and don’t be afraid to do so.

3) Allow yourself to make mistakes so this won’t be the only year with knowledge. There will be more years of learning after this so allow yourself to take the classes now so you will only advance in knowledge. Making mistakes doesn’t mean you are a mistake, so make them! You will learn from them and this change that is spoken about only comes from learning. Make a mistake every once in a while. Sincerely apologize if that mistake bestowed a bruise upon others. Learn. Don’t be afraid to admit you are wrong because admitting your own false responsibility just emphasizes the muscle in your arms. Making a mistake and learning is one of the biggest muscles in the world. You are not a mistake for making a mistake and are not failing if you are learning slowly. The way you progress is incomparable. The way you learn is incomparable.

4) Love yourself for it is one of the most important keys to loving others. Do not let someone love you for you because though love is shareable, you must be greedy with it. Start loving yourself more than you love your own neighbor because true love results in confidence, not arrogance. Love yourself uniquely, so special that it is not fit to touch anyone else. Don’t fear from loving yourself, even though the world creates confidence as a monster. Love yourself not because you are popular, or rich, or the collector of materials that the rest can’t collect. Don’t love yourself for the things you can see but close your eyes and love yourself blind. Fall in love with your heart and if it is not beautiful, do all that you can to make it pretty. Fall in love with yourself with a bag over your head and a pretty heart, instead of falling in love with a pretty face and your heart under a bag.

5) Love. Love the animals and the plants, the sky and the cement. Love those who hurt you and those who healed you. Love those who do not support your decision and love those who you do not support their choices. Love hearts, not faces. Love your past and your future. Love what you cannot see. Love what you can see. Not everything in this world is agreeable, but that doesn’t give you the right to refuse to love. Love the people, not their poor choices. Love because we need it. Love with all of your heart because love is the necessity for a fresh beginning.
