We must know who we are to go where we want to go.











































Whether it's you or a person you love, dealing with a negative medical diagnosis can be difficult. Whether it's you or someone you love.










The right attitude very rarely leads to the wrong action.




The weight of experimental evidence suggests that happier people outperform less happy people, and that their positive demeanor is probably the cause.

Create a world, where negativity isn’t even an option.

How does the mind express an emotion with such intensity that it becomes a part of our decision-making ?

In life you will encounter a lot of people who are not necessarily trying to built you up. Instead, some will see you as a competition or a threat for their own career. You will encounter many situations in which the results may not correspond to your liking. Doubt is a major factor in the creation of negativity.

Let me tell you a bit about my own experiences; I grew up with my parents and teachers telling me what to do, how to dress and how to behave. And then suddenly during high school people expect you to be independent. What career will you start ? College or apprenticeship ? How are you going to pay your license fee ? What if you don’t like the job ? What if you don’t get accepted ? What is your backup plan ? And all of a sudden you are being confronted by thousands of decisions/questions with multiple possibilities.

And that’s how the negativity enters your life. Doubt. Thousands of “What if’s"s. The fear of failing. The fear of making the wrong decision. The fear of the consequences. A mist of doubt, blinding your vision towards success. I let all of these thoughts come over me, and therefore my decisions were made based on pure fear and self-doubt.

I soon came to the realization that negativity is just a mindset. Something, which can be changed. Sometimes you have to look at from a different angle to see the true colours.

Negativity is a choice.

If you allow yourself to get distracted by overthinking, negativity will always be a part of your life.

You have to allow yourself to see the good in everything instead of searching for the bad. Surround yourself with people who want to see you grow. It is not considered "selfish” if you put your health as a priority. And that’s how positivity enters your life. See the lesson in everything, and prepare to do it better next time. Search for different solutions not for excuses. Do not try to be a fire, which has arisen from negativity but try to be the light that spreads positivity.

Create your own world, where negativity isn’t even an option.

Forgiveness isn’t about the other person (people). Forgiveness is an inside job. You deserve to have peace in your heart. Do whatever you can to begin the process of letting go of the past - past struggles you endured, people who have hurt you, anything that is still weighing on your heart. Today, ask God to help you forgive all those who hurt you and to give you peace from all of your past issues/struggles/inner demons you’re still holding on to (even if not intentionally). Focus your mind on the present and the future, and all of the blessings you receive each day. Once you get in the habit of focusing on the positives in your life, you won’t even remember how you used to live without a positive attitude and peace of mind and heart! 😊

LOVE YOURSELF!!! ❤️❤️❤️

Okay so I’m changing this blog to like a therapy blog or something because there is a big community of people on Tumblr who just rant about how sad they are and how they wish they could be this or that. It makes me really sad to see this and I just want everyone to know that they are wonderful. Don’t worry, I will probably keep posting lyrics as well.

KEEP BEING AMAZING!!!

Ive recently moved back home and i honestly could not be happier.

I hated SC with a passion and since moving home my mental health has improved tremendously.

I no longer cry daily, I no longer drink myself to sleep, I no longer space out mid conversations.

Being surrounded by family and friends again has reminded me that even at your lowest there comes a day where you can start to look on the brighter side of life

How a $1 Mint Nail Polish impacted my life

Ever since I was a little girl, I absolutely LOATHED makeup, skirts, dresses and everything that was feminine.

I didnt want to be a “girly girl”, I found them annoying to be around, and all I wanted was to roughhouse with the boys.

Why?

I was trying so hard to not be seen as sensitive, and I had proudly worn the label of a tomboy. I wasn’t interested in barbies, or other dolls, to the sadness of my mom. [Before any thoughts might cross your mind. No, my mom’s extremly caring and I love her a lot. I was just different than how she was as a kid.] No, I wanted to play with what my older brother played with. I wanted G I joe action figures, bionicles, and legos.

I wanted to drive a tank, thank you very much.

Not a Barbie car.


Fast forwards to me going to the family dollar, where even at 19 I felt an instinctual discomfort as I browsed the isles. See, I was going to buy some mint green nail polish. I was uncomfortable and anxious,  just waiting for someone to comment on it. But why?

I realized in this moment that the only one who was stopping me from embracing what I secretly wanted to do was my old self. Getting nail polish and wanting to use it isn’t a crime. There’s nothing wrong with it.

The cashier did comment, but.. he was funny, and made it as a casual remark.

[In case you need context, I was buying the usual easy mac and nutter butters and after hesitating, I placed the polish on the counter]

“Ah, snacks, lunch and nails, the only thing we need in life.”

It was then I finally realized. I had no reason to be ashamed about embracing this part of me. There wasn’t anything wrong with me for actually WANTING to wear nail polish. And I just want to say thank you to the cashier. He probably has no idea how that comment

affected me, he probably has no clue just how much that had settled the restless and rampant thoughts that went through my mind.

There’s nothing wrong with it. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to look beautiful, or even buying something as simple as a dollar mint green nail polish.

This is a first step in my path to healing myself, and it’s all thanks to someone making a silly comment. Thank you, dude.

🌿 You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you. True power is sitting back and observing everything with logic. True power is restraint. If words control you that means everyone else can control you. Breath and allow things to pass.
