Processing….

You ever have a moment happen whether it was unexpected or not so unexpected and you happen to just go within that moment for a second not really knowing what to expect, but once you find yourself in it it’s not until after to where you really realize what just happened and so you find yourself just still trying to process what actually happened!?

Sometimes you have to take a moment and take things in a lot of the time it won’t really make sense and sometimes you’ll find yourself asking a lot of questions, but even when we aren’t quite sure on what exactly is going on taking the time to process things can really help you to think clearly about everything. We don’t always know what is the best way to process things at times, I don’t think there’s really a right way to process…….

I think you’re just meant to process it how you’re feeling it in the moment, depending on what you’re feeling, it might leave you filled with emotions or other feeling and sometimes you won’t always be able to control them, but as long as we do our best to keep things calm especially when not really all that prepared, then the process won’t really seem all that much, it’s also important to make sure that when we find ourselves thinking of things that need a little bit of a moment to process, we don’t go overthinking about it for too long, when we allow our brains to overthink, we give it too much power and we end up having a hard time trying to quiet it down.

So whenever it comes to processing, we just have to try and keep calm and keep our brains from over flowing with thoughts and know that if we need to feel what we’re trying to process, it’s okay to feel them feel them, when we allow ourselves to feel while processing everything, we let any pent up emotions we’ve been burying surface and allow them to release from our system, allowing us to feel a little lighter, letting the rest of our thoughts come to us a little more clearer…….fully processing things even when we don’t quite get it in the moment, can really help make things a bit easier.

Calm…..It’s Okay To Feel You Know!?

Close your eyes and breathe relax and breathe……it’s okay, you’re okay, we are okay. Don’t think that it’s not okay to feel the way you are feeling right now, it’s alright, everything’s alright, I know all these feelings are swirling around and it don’t quite feel all that nice, but it’s going to be fine!!

Don’t think that you shouldn’t feel what it is you’re feeling, they’re meant to come out, it may not make sense to why they’re coming out, but you’re having to release them for a reason……it’s been sitting there for quite some time now, it’s time to let them out…….just because it’s confusing considering how the days been, it’s been pretty alright yeah!?

I know you’re feeling sorry and guilty for letting whatever is going on out, but you shouldn’t be, we all need to let it out sometime, even if it doesn’t quite make sense to when it feels the need to come out, it’s time to heal, allow yourself to heal the way it’s happening and don’t be so hard on yourself about it, allow yourself to feel those emotions and know that it’s for a reason and it’s okay…..it’ll take some time, but be patient……

You’re doing alright, so there’s no need to stress yourself out about it, just trust that everything is going to be alright and it’ll all work out in time, trust yourself and believe in yourself as well, don’t fret it’s all going to be alright!! 🙂

Vibrational Energy (Vibration and Energy)

Just so you know, this is a second attempt to properly explain what I wanted to talk about before, you’ll see what i’m talking about later, for now let’s see if we can process this on a different prospective, we all have different prospective when talking about a topic each time, when you think about it, it’s actually pretty interesting yeah!? I think so too, in this post we’ll be talking about about Vibration and Energy two things that pretty much go hand in hand, now my first attempt at this was…….an attempt that hopefully had a good amount of insight on, we’ll see of course soon.

When thinking about vibration and energy or vibrational energy it’s pretty similar to Earth’s magnetic field, both have their own way of keeping things in order let’s just say, now we can’t see our own vibrational energy, same way we can’t really see earth’s magnetic field, now just because we can’t see it, doesn’t mean that we don’t feel it, anything that comes into contact with our own magnetic field will either shake us slightly or have some kind of huge impact, just like the magnetic field of the earth, now we all know that the earth’s magnetic field is there to protect the earth of any serious impact

Could our vibrational field do the same or is it already!? from my viewpoint i’d like to think that in a way our vibration does the same to protect us like the earth’s field, just in a different way, from what I learned everything is vibration and with vibration it’s important to make sure that our vibrations are rotating or better yet moving in a neutral speed, the vibration that is ours requires a good amount of care, if our vibrational field becomes disturbed greatly it’ll tip everything off it’s natural axis…..

That includes our energy, moods, thoughts, emotions all the above, it’s important to keep it as grounded as possible and keep it from spinning either too much as well as too little, we have to keep it at a well steady speed otherwise everything begins to flip upside down, now it’s not always easy to keep our vibrations from going out of wack, same goes for all the things floating around in space, I mean who knows how quick they speed or float by……well I guess scientist do, but you know what I mean…….

Our vibrational field is pretty sensitive, especially when a lot of things are going on so anything and everything can tamper with the way that we become affected, it may be a big effect or just a slight one, but either way there will always be some kind of effect, are some avoidable!?

Yeah, but also not always, how we tend to what enters our atmosphere, will determine how long it’ll take to recharge and heal, but no matter how off our vibration and energy may be we will always get it to return at a normal state and speed, as long as we can keep it calm and centered, we’ll be fine.

Here’s a doodle of mine the I did a while back, i’ve been debating on whether to give it a black background or just keep it the way it is, when I hung it up on my wall today I actually thought it looked quite nice the way it was, although I still wonder if I should add the black to it or not, but I do also like it this way so I might keep it, I also think it fits well with this post!!

Doodle Chats….

Hiya so how’s everyone’s day going or shall I say how has it been!? Since it’s already pretty dark out, I hope it’s been going well, my days been on a bit of a swirl around, what does that mean, I don’t know, it was the first thing that sorta came to mind…..speaking of mind i’m feeling like chatting, but nothing that’s going to be too deep, you know, i’m kinda in the mode where I need to keep my mind occupied, it hasn’t really been able to properly focus,

So I thought instead of writing about something deep or how i’ve been writing these past few days, we could just chill out and talk about something, I hope that’s alright…..i’m not really sure what’s been up today, but i’ve just not been able to really focus for some reason, i’ve actually been doodling more today then i’ve been writing and I was trying to come up with something all day to share, but nothing really stuck out to my liking and so that’s why the title for this post is doodle chats,

The concept to it is being able to just keep at a calm level while doodling and just talking about things, what things!? Who knows, I guess you can say their randomized, they probably should be around the doodles I do and why I made them, but it’s a bit hard to describe your doodles, if you freely draw based off what you’re emotions and thoughts are, the doodle I made today, I made two actually, one isn’t really finished and as for the other one,

It’s finished, but it isn’t colored or outlined, i’ll outline it tonight, not sure about coloring, because I don’t have any colors in mind for it yet, when I finish outlining it i’ll share it with you guys, maybe you can try and interpret the reason I might’ve created it, but other than that, I don’t really have much else to say here, if anything pops up i’ll share it of course.

Here’s the doodle from today, not sure if you can tell much on what it actually is, I know with drawing’s especially doodles it’s hard to really make out what the picture is, i’m not really sure myself what it is, but I do still see something in it, maybe you might as well, it might be different to what I see, but everyone’s perspective is different right!? I know it doesn’t have color so it may not look like much, once I decide on what colors to use, maybe it’ll be more clear to what it could be or maybe it’ll still be questionable ha!!

Numerology…..

In short……numbers!! Now you might be wondering why exactly i’ve decided to write upon this topic today, well i’ll ask you this, have you ever came across a number or a group of numbers even, a bit more frequently then normal!? If you answered yes in a suspicious kind of way, but still are wondering where exactly i’m going with this, well that’s normal,

When it comes to numerology or the knowledge of numbers, it’ll have you feeling that way, I know it can be a bit weird to see the same numbers over and over everywhere you go, but do not panic or worry, you see what you might not know is with numbers, they tend to have some significants to them and by some I mean quite a lot actually, why!?

That’s a good questions, tell me have you ever heard the saying that “Everything is connected!?” Well that’s because it is and numbers are a big part of that connection, it is even believed that each number in someway connects with what we all call the universe, the divine all the different terms that symbolizes what the universe actually is!!

The universe is quite questionable, I mean we still don’t really know how it really came to be, what caused it to be what it is, sure we know about the big bang and we know that everything in the universe formed from it, but we really don’t know why or how even and we may never really know that question, but we can create some kind of theory for it which is pretty fascinating when you think about it……but back to numbers,

Almost got myself lost thinking too hard on that science……

It is believed that numbers connect to the universe and that numbers are apart of our existence too, I know what you’re thinking, probably getting some weird looks or maybe, just maybe you’re actually intrigued by this thought process that is happening in my brain right now, if so that’s great, but if you’re thinking as a facial expression because you have no words for this right now, I have one question…..can it really be that far fetched!?

I mean we are partially made from stardust or at least have some kind of a good amount of space within us, so with that knowledge who says that numbers don’t also have some kind of involvement to our existence as well…….okay maybe I might be going overboard here, but at the same time we don’t really know, but numbers are pretty significant in our lives.

I’m sure we all have a favorite number or a specific kind of day that we want to remember, but have you ever really thought about why we love those numbers so much!? Why they’re even our favorites to begin with!? Have you cornered don’t I!? We all have some kind of connection with certain numbers that we see or encounter, we don’t always know why,

but we always become drawn to some of them, if you’re ever curious to why you maybe seeing certain numbers quite often, try looking into them, they may have some kind of a message for you and I know it sounds crazy, but really, if you’re ever thinking, wondering or are maybe concern about something, first stop and take a breath and when you do that…….

Look around, see if you notice anything, if you happen to see the same number more than once or even twice, just check the message with it, it might give you some insight to the answers you subconsciously thought about and hopefully whatever the message or answer you received, it gave you some kind of reassurance followed by a clear mind and breath of relief.

1:11

You might be wondering why today’s post is titled after todays date well, let’s just say it’s for a reason…….as I was about to write a post with the same title, but I felt I was approaching it way too seriously then I normally would,

So I thought i’d try it again and open up a new post tab and try not to overthink it so much this time, which is ironic since today’s day is literally all about being aware of your thought and feeling and making sure you’re telepathically, I guess you can say sending out a more positive feeling and thought wave of…..well thoughts and emotions really out into the air or space and all that jazz as what we gather information wise will make it’s way into our lives possibly and by possibly I mean yes definitely!!

As we all know thoughts and emotions are tricky to keep under control especially when you’ve got a lot happening as well as feeling and thinking going on, sometimes you’ll have days you feel you need to take multiple breaths throughout the day then you normally would and that was pretty much the kind of day I was having a bit today, why!? Not sure……

I guess in a way I felt it would help to keep my mind and thoughts centered and not have it decide to take a bit of a short cut or detour shall I say toward places that it needs not to go pretty much, for the most part i’d say taking a few breaths here and there has kept my mind a bit ordered, doing a fair job, however I will admit i’ve almost drifted the path a few times….

But I made sure to pull myself back before it could do any real damage, it’s really tricky trying to keep your mind focus and emotions in check because they technically at times have a mind of their own and sometimes it’s hard to settle them down properly, kinda like a hyper child at times,

but I guess the key here would be to just be aware to what your thoughts deliver to us and how your emotions start up, I think it’s okay if they go a little off course and do what it does best and wander about wherever it pleases to go, as long as you keep and eye out and be mindful of where it wanders off too, then you’ll be able to bring it back if it gets too close to an edge or muddy puddle, we all love a little rain or a lot if you’re a big fan of the rain, but we all know that too much rain can sure make a mess.

That all being said, when we keep our thoughts and emotions as centered as we’re able to, we help to bring in positive energy, but mainly we allow other things to flow in giving us the ability to create a bit of a better reality to our lives, so it’s important to always be aware of the way we not only feel,

but also think too, sure it won’t always be the easiest to do, but as long as we are at least aware to what we’re feeling and thinking, the easier it’ll start to be to keep it from running too far away from us, no matter how many times our minds try to hide behind trees and get us to become distracted, we will always do our best to not let it, at least not too much anyway……

Attraction…..

They say you attract what you feel and what you think, so if your emotions and thoughts are at a higher vibration, 90-95% of the time you will always attract the things that you want and desire quicker than you might expect, if however your vibration is on the low scale, well it’s going to be harder to receive all that you’re wanting when you want it.

It’s not that we won’t get it, it’s just that sometimes we blocking ourselves temporarily from receiving it, they also say that by wanting something, you already are convincing and telling yourself that you don’t already have what you most want and desire, so instead of being like a magnet and attracting the things we want to come to us, we instead deflect our attraction…..like light off a mirror or something like that.

If you notice a lot of the things we happen to come by have all happened unexpectedly, when we think so hard on something or want something to happen really badly, we tend to cause some kind of friction, resistance more like and because we resist we keep what we want from getting to us.

When we put all our focus on wanting something to happen right away, we stop it from happening right away, instead of leaving it to have some breathing room. It’s like trying to rearranging furniture in your home, but everything is in the middle of the floor so you’re having to tightly squeeze yourself in to where there’s available space to move around.

As if it’s like a tightly condense maze, in other words with everything being in the middle of the room you’re left with, but so much space to navigate through, which will bring upon frustration and stress because you’re trying so hard to find your way through all this furniture to get to the next room.

Now unless you’re some kind of secret spy that loves tight spaces and isn’t claustrophobic there’s no need to do all that, you can get through just by moving something over if you’re able to and if not, patience shall help and eventually all the furniture will be right back in it’s rightful space.

In order to attract what it is we want, we gotta give it some kind of breathing room as well as keep from focusing on how bad we want it to happen, it should be easy yes!! Is it!? Not so much no……

What’s difficult about wanting to attract the things you’re wanting is, it requires our train of thoughts assistants and sometimes/majority of the time, it doesn’t like to cooperate all that well with us, so a lot of the time it tends to derail us off the tracks that we’re needing to stay on in order for everything to come to fruition and that can cause the attraction we have set in mind to become a little bonkers……although we may try to put the best positive energy into our thoughts and send it out into the universe to process……we end up unknowingly sending out the opposite kind of energy sometimes, why!? because we attract what it is we feel and think,

Everything comes from thought as well as emotion, sometimes we don’t realize that we’re thinking in a specific sorta kind of way and most of the time we don’t have a clue that a lot of what we think has come to life within our reality, it’s a weird, yet not so weird type of thing.

With trying to attract a certain or specific thing or so, we have to be aware of our thoughts and emotions that can be a bit on the tricky side, because our emotions and thoughts go based off our mood, well it’s the other way around more like, but regardless of that if either one falls on the not so great category scale, it can trip us up at times.

So how do we deal with that!? Well we just have to be more aware with the way we feel and think as they will come hand in hand at times, once we become more aware, everything else will come together quicker then we may expect…..all it takes is a side of fries, patience and some work, but most importantly some faith, trust, and pixie dust.

A Process Not Too Far From Progress…..

If you were given the chance to wake up in a different world, would you!? I would just to see what it’s like for a moment…..everything is so out of wack these days, you think on whether everything will get better or if it’s just going to keep going the way it is!? Surely there has to be some kind of change, a more positive one at that right!? Sometimes you don’t know where you stand at times, whether you’re going in the right direction or if you’re just being a big ole” bobble head of a person on a certain day.

Yeah okay that last sentence was probably a weird one, but seriously it’s so hard to know how everything goes, where everything is supposed to go and if you’re able to handle it all…..most things just continue to come out of nowhere to the point where, you’re thinking whether or not you should keep a look out for something just in case something else pops up, but I guess it wouldn’t be life if those things didn’t happen right!?

It’s tough, you want to be able to keep your head up when things get a little too chaotic, but sometimes it always feels as though gravity just wants your head to be down all the time, that’s how strong negative energy is, no matter how strong you try your hardest to be, there’s always going to be a moment where you can’t help, but want to break down and just not be bothered and most people will tell you that it’s going to be okay and that things will get better, which isn’t wrong to say because it’s true,

However, sometimes it’s okay if things aren’t okay, it’s harder to try and feel positive when you’re feeling really down and out, then it is to actually let yourself feel the things your feeling. We all try and put brave faces on and seem as though we are bullet proof and that we can withstand anything, although that is true, we wouldn’t be able to do all of that, without feeling the unwanted and negative feelings that we feel. Without harsh wind storms, we wouldn’t have nice breezy days, without hurricanes, we wouldn’t be able to enjoy the calmness that the water brings, that might’ve rhymed, I don’t know, but what i’m trying to get at is, with bad comes good and with good comes bad, there’s a balance to it and with that balance,

We just need to know how to get it right or find a way to make it better somehow, sometimes it takes time and sometimes we’re able to pick it up pretty darn well, but if somethings is not okay, that’s okay and if something is okay, that’s okay!! We shouldn’t always have to feel as though we need to keep positive and not worry, it’s important to not do that of course especially if it’s excessive (is that the word!? Probably)

If you’re worrying and stressing it’s alright, it means you really care about something, if you didn’t care you wouldn’t feel those things, but just keep tabs on how much you let the meter go over…..I know it’s not always easy to keep things leveled, be it with emotions, hard days, thoughts, you name it!!

Sometimes those things do have a way at getting the better of us, but if we can handle it, we will and if not it doesn’t mean we won’t and can’t, life is hard and oh so very stressful most of the time, but life can also be pretty easy if we let it, will we!? Most likely not, but really it’s the way we choose to look at everything that will determine how well we get it right.

Just so everyone’s clear here, don’t worry i’m still learning this myself, it’s a process for everyone, but it’s a process that isn’t too far from progress…..

Just Needing To Chat….

Today has been quite a day, it’s been so much of a day that i’m literally mentally exhausted because of it, I don’t even know how this post is going to come out to be honest, if it ends up being full of rambles, sorry in advance, I just don’t know how to really handle everything today, my emotions are off the charts, one minute i’m okay and the next I just want to cry and get angry all at the same time, I mainly want to cry and that’s me being honest here…..i’m in this mode where I want to talk to someone, but I don’t at the same time, I just really don’t know what to do with myself.

Chaos keeps breaking out around me, because no one knows how to handle things simply without blowing up and getting mad at one other, people think they know what’s right and what’s wrong and love being the one to say I told you so, everyone just loves saying that. Sometimes it doesn’t even need to be said they just think they got it right from start to finish, when they don’t even know, they don’t flipping know whatsoever on what’s going on and why you feel the way you feel, they just like assuming the reason.

Sorry…..i’m sorry, i’m not trying to dump all my issues and problems on here, there’s just so much in my head that I don’t know how to get it out, i’ve been in thought mode all day and i’ve been trying so hard to keep everything together and act as though everything’s fine, but when it comes to the way my emotions work, I can’t pretend, because it’s written all over my face, as always……and I hate it because then people want to know why you’re feeling down and out and although you appreciate the concern,

Sometimes you just have days where you just want to deal with it, as it’s coming without the whole “let’s talk about it” start up conversation and okay yes, part of you wants to sit there and talk about it all, but at the same time you would rather just keep it all to yourself and not be bothered about it, but you also know that’s not healthy and so you express it a little and what happens, judgement, there’s no just listening going on at all.

What you get back is things you really don’t need nor want, plus if you did want a little pick me up kind of chat, it’s not in an understanding way, it’s not in a supportive way or a warm approach, it’s just people wanting to add what they think you need to hear and although that’s all fine and dandy at times and yes tough love is helpful to most……not everyone wants that.

Some people just want someone to listen, to be there and let them know things are going to be okay and give them the opposite of what tough love is and maybe that’s the…..I don’t even know what to call it, the softer approach kind of way, where you sit with someone and you listen to them and be their emotional support when they’re needing it. It’s like you know when you’re watching a show or movie and you have those families or just people in general who are really understanding and when they talk to you,

It’s in a comforting kind of way without the intensity involved, you know what I mean, does that make sense!? I know what I mean and what i’m trying to say, I just don’t know how to put it all in the correct kind of order, but hopefully you get what i’m saying……it’s just everything is so hard and trying to work it all out in a way that you’re able to keep it simple,

Is like a task and a half to complete and it doesn’t help when you know you’re having an extra amount of a really tough day and you yourself are trying so hard to get through it, yet it becomes even more harder, because the level is always on intense mode for some flipping reason and you try to keep it at lower level, but no matter how hard you try and express what you’re wanting, it still ends up being unclear and it just ends up going back to fully on mode and that’s the mode you’re trying to say you don’t want.

It’s like I don’t know, I feel like i’m the only one whose mode is not turned up to the max, everyone’s so intense and angry, while i’m reserved and emotional, why is that!? Every time I observe it, I still can’t figure it out and it should feel good to be the odd ball out because you have your own way of doing things, but lately as much as I would hate to admit it, I find myself wanting to just fit in somewhere, but I can never bring myself to play along in a crowd full of madness if that makes sense!?

I’m a calm person who is as quiet as a mouse and I do my very best to keep away from things that are a little too much to handle and the only time I get explosive is when my emotions find a way to get to me and when that happens I have no control of it. I get angry, but my anger is more out of frustration then actually being mad, it’s rare when i’m angry, I don’t like to get angry, but i’m just having a really hard time dealing with everything.

Today is one of those days where it’s just so much that all I want to do is cry and cry and cry, become frustrated on the fact that I am crying and then cry a little more, until I somehow convince myself that it’ll be fine and that we’re going to get through it somehow and try and be okay again……

It’s so much I tell you, but i’m doing everything I can to push through it, I can’t talk about it, talk about it, the way I would like to, but this, this post right here, expressing myself to you guys, whether you’re listening or not, it helps in a weird way and it’s odd, because even though I was feeling the way I was today, I had in my mind that I wanted to write about it, literally all I wanted was me and either my blog or my journal today, nothing else.

Why does this work better I don’t know, but it does and i’m thankful and grateful for this blog and for those who I have talked to and even the people who take the time to read all of my posts, be it pretty short or very long.

When I started this blog it was to be able to have a place to go when I need my headspace cleared and for a long time, I abandoned that whole concept because I didn’t think it was interesting and I thought no would want to read that from me even though it was the way I was feeling, but the more I write I find it’s becoming a little more personal each time and i’ll admit it’s scary, but it gives me a place to be more myself in way, without the pressure of having to figure everything out, I mean I still feel pressure, because i’m constantly putting pressure on myself because I feel I need to always be doing something and worry about where i’m going and it’s really stressful.

But for the most part, writing helps me to express and allows me to not be afraid to express, although i’ve been working on being more vocal, I still find this to be a little bit easier then actually talking about my feelings.

I’ve been scared to express in this kind of way because I didn’t want to bring all of this here, but i’m letting myself be a bit more personal, but also choosing what I want to say and what I would rather keep to myself. It’s still a work in progress, but if you read any of it, just know i’m very appreciative on the fact that you guys are interested in reading this side, just as much as if i’m writing about something that makes me happy or when I find something interesting and want to share, you have no idea on how much that means, so from the bottom of my heart, thank you so very much,

for enjoying my blog and coming back to read my posts, i’ve had this blog for about 1 year and 3 months today actually and I do see your support with it, i’ve just been so wrapped up that I also miss it at times, but i’m going to do my best to work at that and thank you guys a little more often for being here. With that all said, I think it’s a good time to stop writing because this is almost starting to look like a chapter in a book, I hope you all are having a better day then me and are doing well and I hope you all have a goodnight.

All The Love ❤ ❤

Self care…..Part 2 (Oct 10, 2019)

I’ve already written a part one on the talks of self care, hence why you’re reading part 2, part 1 was more of a personal kind of talk, while this one will hopefully be talked about differently, in honor of World Mental Health Day, which is today (now yesterday) in case some of you didn’t know, don’t worry I actually didn’t know myself so if you forget or just genuinely wasn’t aware it’s okay, no worries, now my first write about self care isn’t up just yet, i’m still looking it over and reading it, it should be up before you see this though or you might see this one first and that one second,

I’ll try and keep it in order so it doesn’t get confusing, but I just wanted to let you know about that. I wanted to try and talk a little more about the importance of self care, because I don’t think people take it much into consideration and take it as serious as it should be, i’ve already stated in my first post how I have trouble with this, self caring isn’t really a big strong suit of mine, I find it weird, but i’ve realized how important it is to look after yourself. When it comes to self care, it’s surprisingly really difficult to keep yourself well, it shouldn’t be, but it is…..for some reason when it comes to our own well being, it’s a thought that is far from our minds, why!?

Well that’s a question that probably crosses our mind, yet it’s also a question that we tend to ignore if it does, now i’m not going to pretend that I know exactly what i’m talking about, because I don’t, I don’t really know much when it comes to self care, so I wouldn’t be able to tell you the ins and outs to it all, I’m actually just now learning about it properly myself, while having to adjust to it as well…..the only thing that I can say with it is,

As much as it may not seem like a big thing, it totally and definitely 100% percent is a big thing, most of us however ignore that fact and just continue to go about everything as if we can handle it all when in reality, that’s not always possible, we all have our breaking points and we all need a time and space to be able to just not deal with things for a bit, it’s well needed you know!? but in all seriousness, it is important to make sure you’re good and well, especially when dealing with mental health, I don’t think this can be expressed enough, people don’t think that mental health is a serious issue, but it really is, if you’re not well mentally, you won’t be able to be well in other aspects that are needed, everything starts with your mind.

If your mind is upside down and is just a complete mess, it’ll start to effect everything else around you as well, that’s why it’s important to make sure anything and everything that is within your headspace is filled with things that aren’t going to be harmful to you, easier said then done I know, believe me, I have a hard time keeping this in mind too, I struggle with Anxiety so my head is always being filled with so much it’s ridiculous!!

Some days are better than most, while on other days it tends to heighten and go into overload, it’s like having a whole lot of emails in your inbox and as you go through them all, you find most of what’s in your inbox, is just junk mail and so you go to delete them, but you realize you have a lot of junk mail then you know what to do with and you’re trying to figure out the best way to just get rid of it all, but you don’t know where to start and what’s actually important, so you’re just sitting there going through them all and although your concentrating hard on those emails, inside you’re freaking out and losing your mind just trying to get through it all.

The only thing with this email inbox is, it’s an everyday process and it seems like it keeps piling and piling and you wish you didn’t have to deal with it, but unfortunately it doesn’t go away, however it is maintainable, but it does come with some emotional and physical side effects…..

Sorry I think I went away from the topic for a bit, getting back on track, keeping your headspace clear from all things harmful and negative is a tough tasks to accomplish, it’s not impossible, it’s just hard. Anxiety though isn’t the only mental health issue that people deal with on a daily basis, people also struggle with depression, bi-polar disorders, eating disorders and so many other forms of mental health issues that’s out there……

Anxiety and depression are the most talked about in the mental health world, but those aren’t the only ones that people go through, it’s important to look at other issues just as much as we look at Depression and Anxiety, on the statistic outlook scale (hopefully that made sense) although they have different effects and are formed differently, they still connect in the same way, because they all stem from our emotions and thoughts.

It’s hard to wrap our heads around what causes some of us to have more of an effect then others when it comes to dealing with mental health, we all know it has to do with our brains and having some parts unlatched and disconnected from the rest of whatever is going on inside our brains, but when it comes to the science of it, it’s still a little complicated understanding fully, at least it’s one that i’m unable to explain properly to you guys.

But let’s not complicate things here, as much as I love and enjoyed science back in school, still enjoy it actually, also yes I know mental health is a more psychology related topic, then actual science, however you still use science with psychology i’m pretty sure, so it’s still in the same boat technically, don’t actually quote me on it though, because I know nothing alright.

Back to self care, because that’s what we were talking about here, it’s important to take care of yourself, plain and simple, I know it can be hard to take your focus away from everything and keep yourself from stressing and getting overwhelmed and that, but you have to know when to slow down and take a break at times so your able to function properly through the days, if you stop yourself from taking the time that you need to reboot and recharge you’ll end up crashing and breaking down to the point where you’ll find it extremely difficult to get back to where you left off…..

You don’t ever want to have it get to that point, so you have to try and keep a balance with everything, this coming from a girl where the word balance is nowhere near her daily vocabulary, it’s not even on a list, with that being said, self care is something we all have to try and practice, especially when it’s something that we aren’t really used to, it can be a challenge, but it doesn’t mean that it’s something not worth giving a chance, I mean it shouldn’t even be considered as an option, self care should be taken as an everyday kind of thing, but knowing how most of us operate……

We’re not always going to be able to look after ourselves the way we normally should, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t still take care of ourselves. If we can’t commit to self care everyday, we should at least try and pick certain days throughout the week plus the weekend where we look at what we’re lacking or need improving on and do our best to work at that as much as we’re able to, so for example:

If you’re the type who struggles to relax or you don’t know how to, finding ways and practicing relaxation can help you to learn to take it easy a little bit more, plus it’ll keep your stress levels down while giving you the ability to clear away a good amount of headspace so your able to focus better.

This is something that I need to really practice a whole lot, because I don’t do that often, I would rather stress myself out then relax, that’s how much I give myself a break on things I feel I need to do better at, yeah…..but there’s a lot of ways to self care i’m sure and keep the chaos from becoming too chaotic, mental health and self care, should always go hand in hand, there should always be a balance between them, because without one, the other wouldn’t know what to do, so it helps to keep them together so that way you feel at ease, if not entirely, at least you know you’ll feel a little better with it.

All The Love ❤ ❤
