Let me know if you want me to talk about anything else ! Hopefully this helps you ! Much love and peace to you !
I remember all the things you used to say
Now you acting like you never told them
Waiting for a text from you
Still you on that ghost mode
Blaming me for your mistakes
Trying to make me feel worse though
You can’t even hide your pain
Girl your eyes show it all , oh no
Self harm won’t make you okay
Girl come here i can heal your pain
Media Title: Daily Calm via the Calm app

Summary: Daily Calm is a guided meditation session that explores a single, specific theme such as Alleviating Worry, Letting Go or Self Soothing. Each meditation is around 10 minutes long and a new one is sent to subscribers of the meditation service Calm every morning. Guided meditation is when a narrator talks you through the meditation steps (position, relaxation, focus, breathing, etc.) and/or offers observations for consideration, so previous experience in meditation is not necessary. The author and narrator for all these meditations is Tamara Levitt.
Review: Just about everyone agrees that meditation is good for your health and your soul, and I agree. Meditation has been practiced for centuries - structure, pace and individual techniques vary. I have found that for me, a relatively short (less than 30 minutes), guided meditation is wonderfully comforting, strengthening and somehow so grounding that when I finish the meditation I am refreshed, focused and happy.
The Daily Calm is great because a brand new meditation is delivered every day and you can listen to it whenever it suits your schedule. I found the Daily Calm topics to be wonderful and the music/nature sounds used as background or played during the non-narrated times to perfectly match the topic. The only reason the Daily Calm did not get my highest rating was because I did not love the narrator’s voice (I found it to be too monotonous). A quick look at the comments on the Daily Calm YouTube sessions will show that many people find it very soothing, however, it just did not work for me. I do appreciate that in order to offer support during this crazy time, some previously recorded Daily Calm sessions have been made available to everyone on YouTube.
Receiving a new Daily Calm each day was a gentle reminder to care for myself and I liked the convenience of it coming to me. I encourage the designers to invite other narrators to give listeners variety. Regardless of how you do it, your heart and soul will thank you for taking the time to meditate.
All of sudden
Last night I had this sudden realization. A moment of clarity. What I realized was that I really owe it to myself to really, intentionally focus on myself for the rest of my twenties. Fuck what everyone else is doing. Fuck searching for love. Fuck going out and being reckless. Fuck anything that isn’t going to contribute to my growth and success. I have all of these dreams and ideas and the only one who is going to be able to make them come true is myself. It’s not going to happen out of sheer luck. It won’t happen if I’m trying to pour myself into relationships that aren’t serving me. It won’t happen if I’m consuming myself with other people’s drama. It won’t happen while I’m out partying my life away. All of the things that I want and desire will come in time with my discipline and focus. I really owe this to myself. To love myself enough to make all of my biggest and wildest dreams come true. And it is going to happen. I open my heart, mind, body, soul, and spirit to all of the accomplishments and success that God has for me. It is already mine. Now it’s time to put this work in.
Here is some research I done based on the painter George Stubbs, I found his work very interesting and inspiring
there’s no magical cure to getting over someone. there’s time. space. other people. new things. but there’s so right answer or special process or equation. you have to let go on your own terms and on your own time. moving on can look like a million things. it’ll work out how it works out.
you don’t have to forgive everyone who has wronged you
be a little flexible…
… and keep your eyes open wider when looking for motivation in life. you can find it in anyone’s story around you.
also remember to crinkle your eyes into small slits when you’re around demotivating things. you don’t need them in your life.
you can decide what you want to channel more of, into your life - positive or negative influence. pick wisely ✨
Seize the day, boys.
Make your lives
Live your dreams 🌟
Dear Mr. Torres
Dear Mr. Torres,
Thank you for introducing me to my love of writing and storytelling. Thank you for seeing past a broken 16 year old girl with a lot of anger, disappointment and sadness raging around inside of her. It’s because of you that I learned to use my voice. I can tell my story now because you believed in me. You didn’t have to give me chance after chance but you did. You told me once that words can heal you if you let them. I didn’t believe you at first but these days I must admit there is a certain kind of magic in the way a story or poem is thread together and can slowly unfold. You rallied for me, you fought to make sure I wasn’t dismissed because sometimes I couldn’t get out of bed, you read my journals and saw my pain and decided to help me anyway. I thank you for the time and energy it took you to dissect all that chaos and jumbled mess behind all those words. You gave me room to grow, to figure out how to breathe. Depression can really take a toll on a person you never let me float away like I wanted to. You taught me to always remember to save me first. I can never repay you for your kindness. Sometimes I wonder where you are, I wonder if you’re still teaching, if you’ve met another me along the way, do you ever think of me? My gratitude just doesn’t seem like enough but I give it to you freely anyways. Wherever you are I hope your generosity, hope and faith is still continuing to touch troubled souls because you’re an amazing teacher and human being and everyone needs a Mr. Torres in their corner helping fight for for them, advocating for them. Having someone like you in their corner will always be a beautiful thing. You touched my soul when it wasn’t very easy too do. I wanted you to know I’m still here and I’m still breathing. I’m still a mess but everyday I wake up and do my best to live my life, so thank you.
in difficult times,
we often forget
that there is still so much to be grateful for.
