    I’ve been taking some big steps into self improvement and it’s so exciting, the future holds so much.

    P.S. I wore this out on a little walk with Zo today and felt powerful.

  • PLEASE STOP SCROLLING!!

    This is a small reminder to:

    • Take some deep breaths
    • Eat something or drink some water if you haven’t in a while
    • Move around a bit or just change how you’re sitting/laying if you’ve been in the same position for a while
    • Take a small nap or go to bed if you’re tired

    And finally,

    • Remember to take care of yourself!! Even little things like some of these count!!

  • having alone time this weekend has made me realize how i renegotiate space when we’re together to accommodate you

    how i reinvent myself and shapeshift to fit in a box that sits nicely by your side

    on my own, i am

    bold

    wild

    somewhat of an instigator

    curious

    maybe slightly devious

    sexual

    humorous

    empowered

    confident

    unapologetic

    self reliant

    nonchalant


    by your side i am

    mature

    responsible

    in-need of care

    docile

    generous

    accommodating

    wifely

    smart

    tired

    stressed

    all-knowing


    i am acting

    i’m certainly not saying this is any fault of yours. but i notice now, i’m a strange version of myself when i’m with you.


    i wonder why that is….

  • I’m not very active here, nor do I aim to be. I never really post and that’s my choice.

    But I’ve recently encountered something that I’ve never encountered before. And that something is having a family member be cheated on.

    It’s made me question so many things about love, about life, and about relationships. I’m not entirely sure as to what I should do.

    As if the world wasn’t complicated enough, people had to come along and ruin it. It’s optimistic nihilism, and it’s okay to think this way.

    Although I am rarely proud, I pride myself in my thought processes. They’re by no means perfect, and I’m always learning. But that’s just it, there’s the rub, I’m learning while so many other refuse to.

    I might never understand why my relative’s husband won’t fly back to our country to sign the divorce papers. I will also never understand how a person can become so devoid of basic human empathy, emotions, and sympathy towards others. What is it that causes a person to become so deranged that they lose their survival instinct? That they lose their ability to feel? That they become so unable of showing even an ounce of empathy towards someone who is suffering?

    But what I do understand is that, when we stop learning, we stop living.

    And I don’t mean learning about facts or gaining more scientific knowledge. What I mean is that we as human beings have an obligation to learn to be better. It doesn’t matter in what shape or form we become better, nor is there an ultimate form of “betterness”, but how can we ever hope to change things if we refuse to change ourselves.

    I don’t think many people really truly grasp the depth and effectiveness of societal conditioning and the amount of control these restrictive systems have on them. The strength it takes to break free from them is unfathomable, and I don’t even think I’m there yet myself, but I’m working on it.

    No one. Not anyone in this entire universe is allowed to dictate your happiness. As long as you live right by yourself, without causing harm to others, there is nothing that should stop you from achieving it.

    I am getting better, I am trying to get better, and I will become better. I won’t change who I am, but I will be the best version of myself I can be.

  • tonight, i pray for everyone’s journey

    for those who are growing families

    for those who are growing their careers

    for those who are growing themselves

    for those who have chosen to rest

    for those who have chosen to be different

    for those who have dared to be themselves

    and for those who are still afraid


    i pray for them all.

    i am grateful to be where i am today on my journey, and i send love to the universe. 💕

    of course, i’m not in a perfect situation and i have many stresses, but i am happy to be my, to have my life, my family and my home.

  • Getting more confident in saying “these are my boundaries + they are not up for discussion.”

    • What am I afraid of or avoiding when I choose not to enforce my boundaries? Rejection. Being disliked. Being attacked. I think I would prefer that temporary dissatisfaction over feeling uncomfortable over extended periods of time due to me not enforcing and respecting my own boundaries.

    • Marching DCA just happened
    • Bassoon just happened
    • Omar just happened
    • Micromanaging/ obsessing over the possible outcomes of hypothetical situations is one of the main ways I procrastinate and eventually talk myself out of doing things. I need to cut it the everloving fuck out.

  • today, i’m having a hard time just letting it go


    i’m having a hard time releasing the stress

    the anguish

    the pressure


    today it feels like it’s too much for me and i don’t want to participate any longer


    today i feel a hurt from deep within

    one unhealed and overscarred

    i feel damaged and broken from the inside out

  • not sure if this is applicable to anyone else so this is basically just for me next time I’m in a funk. enjoy!

    1. Sit on the floor. Sometimes the thought of getting out of bed makes the gremlin in your brain upset, so sitting on the floor is the stepping stone to Getting Up. Once you’re on the floor, you’ll feel better- then you can go from there. If all you can do is sit on the floor, then that’s enough and it’s worth doing. 

    2. Drink really cold water. Even if you don’t think you’re dehydrated, you probably are and it’s making you feel like shit: headache, low energy, cranky. So go to the kitchen or get someone to bring you a massive class of water and chug it- the colder the better.

    3. Take a shower. Nothing on this planet helps me feel like a human again more than a hot, hot shower. Play some music- upbeat or in your feels, doesn’t matter- and sit in the shower. I make it as hot as I can and then I sit and let the water hit my back/ neck until I feel the tension start to release. Then, body part by body part, I make sure I’m not subconsciously holding tension anywhere (jaw, shoulders, hands). If you have the energy to bathe, go for it. If not, just let the water run until you feel like Jello.

    4. Eat something. If it’s a sleeve of ritz crackers or a four-course meal, just eat something. Your body can’t run on nothing. Just eat whatever you can, preferably something substantial, but a few crackers is still better than nothing. 

    5. Watch/ Read something you’re familiar with. Get something you’ve already seen or read before and know you’ll like. Sometimes watching something new takes too much energy and our brains like the predictability.

    Basically self-care is bullshit and a face mask has never given me one ounce of serotonin, but these things seem to help. Sometimes when things start to feel funky you gotta go back to the basics.

  • So Question…

    Do you think it would matter if in apps like Tumblr, YouTube, Facebook and others there was a option you turn on that pops up before you post a message, like right after you stop typing it pops up. The message depending on what you want it to say could range from ‘Are you sure?’ to ‘Did you think of who this will affect?’. Nothing hurtful just a last check to be sure you want this posted out into the world.
