Decluttering Not Only Your Space But Your Mind As Well………(Shortest Blog Post I’ve Ever Written)

Hey everyone hope you’re all doing well, today I wanted to talk about decluttering, now most people would think that decluttering has to do with only getting rid of what you don’t need in your space, but that isn’t true, I mean it is, but there’s more to declutter than just your space. I actually wrote about this topic in my journal last night before I went to sleep and I thought why not also talk about it here as well, lately i’ve been in the mindset of wanting to get rid of everything that I feel isn’t really doing me any good and is only taking up space in my life, it’s mainly with actual stuff, I have so much stuff that I want to sort through, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet, but I will soon, anyway back to what I was on about.

We all know that decluttering your space can be good for you because then you’ll be able to get rid of all the things that you no longer need and that no longer serve you good, while also making room for new and better things for you, it’ll also give you a much more cleaner space so you won’t have to stress about having too much around you, but the most important thing to declutter once in a while would be your mind. Let’s face it we don’t really take the time to really analyze our thoughts and look through them to see what should stay and what should go. We really should declutter our minds every once in a while though, that way we’re able to get rid of all the things that are only putting us down and really just taking up space in our minds that we really don’t need taken up. When we give ourselves the proper time to clear out the attic that we call our minds, we help give ourselves the chance to clear out the old and not so good thoughts and make room for a fresher mind and a much more positive outlook on things.

Decluttering both your living space and mind can really help you focus on what’s really important and it’ll help you also have a clearer perspective on everything. When you have so much stuff around you and so much going on in your head, it’s gonna be hard to really focus and get your brain in order, which will also make you feel very frustrated and it’ll start to drive you crazy after a while as well, okay maybe not crazy, but having too much stuff and a lot going on in your mind can get very overwhelming, bringing out all of your not so good emotions in the process. So when you get the chance make sure to declutter and get rid of all of the things and thoughts that are taking up too much space, if it doesn’t make you happy and it’s just becoming a burden on you just get rid of it, don’t keep holding on to it especially if it doesn’t do you any good, believe me you’ll feel a lot better, plus again you’ll be able to start off fresh and new and things will just become a lot more simpler to handle and i’m sure we can all agree that having things be a little simpler could do us all a little good, just saying.

Anyway, that’s all I have for today’s blog post, I don’t really have anything else to say here, I know that this ones shorter compared to my other blog posts, but I still hope that you enjoyed it in some way and that you were able to take something from this as well, anyway I hope you all have a goodnight, morning and or evening πŸ™‚

Take A Little Walk With Me……

Hey everyone hope you’re all well, okay so i’m gonna be honest……i’m not really sure what to write about today so I thought i’d just take you on a walk into nature, don’t worry you don’t need to walk anywhere unless you want to then go right ahead, although I must say this, I already went for a walk which is why I said you don’t need to. You see the cover photo of this blog post!? it’s nice isn’t it, i’d say it is, but that’s only because I took that photo, now i’m not saying i’m the greatest at taking photo’s but i’m actually quite happy with this one, I took more, but you’ll see them soon.

Anyway let’s talk walks in nature, have you ever noticed how nice and relaxing it is when you’re just walking!? I’m sure a lot or some of you have, for those who love walking and enjoy being outdoors i’m sure they know exactly what that’s like. Sometimes you don’t realize how nice and beautiful nature really is, the way the trees look, the way they move and sway with the wind pushing and flowing through their leaves. You also have the wind itself, the wind actually as a very interesting sound to it, I was walking and this time i brought my headphones because as some of you may remember I forgot them the last time I went for a walk ha…..but yeah so I brought my headphones and put on some music as I walked but before I put my music on, I could hear the wind blowing through my earphones and it was mainly when I was moving, when I stopped it didn’t really make that much sound.

Now if you’re the kind to take in everything you would know that nature has a lot of sounds to it, the wind has a very unique sound to it, obviously I can’t mimic it, but we’ll just say that it’s very unique. When it comes to nature itself everything is unique and has a very specific sound to it, birds with the way they sing, we all know that every bird is different, even trees have a sound to them when the wind flows through them, just everything. It was really hot out actually, very hot, but there was also a good breeze happening as well so that was nice, but anyway back to what I was talking about, so I went for a walk and I ended up going to this little park close by, now this was the first time I ever went to this park, i’d always pass it, but never thought of giving it a chance, but today I decided to give it a try, see what it was about and it was actually pretty alright, is it my favorite!? no not really, but it was still nice.

So I walked around the park for a good while, took a picture of a flower bush and while I was walking through the park, there were some dragonflies flying around and flying through this little grass hill, one flew over my head and kinda followed me a bit, but then flew off somewhere else. I spent about an hour or so there and in the park they have a little playground, but I wasn’t a huge fan of it that much though. I continued to walk around the park for a good while, I sat on the benches that were there too a little bit, I was gonna walk back home after being there for a bit, but something told me to stay for a little bit longer, so I did and I saw another dragonfly and it was flying around of course and I watched it fly around and you know how when you see something and it kinda puts you in this little trance for a bit!? well that’s what happened with me, as I was watching the dragonfly I couldn’t help, but want to follow it so I did.

As I followed the dragonfly, it ended up flying somewhere else after a while of course, but I walked up the grass hill and like I said the park isn’t that big at all, but when you walk up the grass hill it, it makes it seem like there’s a bit more to it and believe it or not there was bit actually, when I walked up the little hill there was this fence and some more trees, but I also discovered there was a little passage way with a river, I think it was a river, I was gonna go down the passage way, although I wasn’t quite sure if I should’ve went, but I saw someone else down there and thought maybe it’s okay to go and I started to kinda go down the way to see more, but as I was walking down, I found that the walk down was very steep and I was really nervous because I was like I don’t want to fall down, there was so many stones and rocks and I didn’t want to risk going down there, so I said you know what i’ll just come back when i’m wearing proper shoes next time.

I was wearing comfortable shoes, I had my bob shoes on and if you own a pair of bobs you know how comfortable they are, they’re so comfortable, however I felt I needed better shoes to walk down the trail, so i’ll wear some sneakers or boots next time I go, that way I know i’m okay. So instead of going down the trail fully, I took a few pictures of it, there was some ducks in the water, very cute, although the pictures with the ducks in it are on my camera and I only put the pictures I took on my phone on here so yeahhhh…..but the pictures are nice, I think they are anyway ha. After being at the park for a good period of time I started heading back home, I found a feather on my way back and I also spotted this really adorable bird it was yellow and black, very cute.

20180830_125825

Don’t worry I have it here to show you, it was flying around this garden of a shortcut I took home and I wasn’t even paying attention that much and then all of sudden my eyes took focus on this little bird who was in someone else’s garden and when I saw it I had to take a photo, it kept flying around and I thought I was gonna miss it, but it actually let me take a photo of it on my phone, I tried to take one on my camera as well, but it ended up flying away, but hey at least it let me take a photo of it right!?

After I watched the bird fly off, I continued my way back to my house and i’m listening to my music, now I don’t really know where it came from, but out of nowhere, my attention went towards another little feather only this one was floating through the air, now normal people would just keep walking, but nope not me I stopped and started following the feather and it kept on going and going and the way it was floating, was as if it was leading me somewhere, i’m not really sure it’s probably just me, but I followed it and although I was in the middle of the street which isn’t smart, I caught the feather, lucky there wasn’t any cars when I was in the middle of the street, however once I got on the sidewalk a car came by so that was a close one, although now that I think about it, i’m not sure if it came the way I went or the other way, away from where I was!? We have two different ways cars can come from, ones a one way I think and the other cars can just come by with no problem.

Yeah so that was my day, nothing else really happened within my walk, once I came back I sat in my backyard for a bit and yeah that was it, thanks for taking this little walk with me in nature, I hope you guys found this interesting, I know you can’t really take anything from this, but I hope you still enjoyed it, I didn’t know what to write so I thought why not share and bring you on a walk with me and tell you all about the cool things I discovered, but anyway I hope you enjoyed this and I hope you all have a goodnight, morning and or evening πŸ™‚

A Few Topics In One Blog Post That Are Important To Take In and Keep In Mind….

You ever find yourself stuck in the middle of something to where no matter how hard you might want to ignore it or try to ignore it, it’s quite impossible!? Yeahhh I know that feeling all to well too, you think to yourself is there anyway to ignore it!? and the truth is……not really you have to sometimes face it and deal with it in the best way that you can, even when you don’t really want to. So what do you do when all you want is to focus on yourself, but there’s always something there to kinda take you off balance!? Just go with it, but also remember not to let yourself be consumed by the chaos of it all, if you find yourself getting too overwhelmed with a situation happening know that it’s okay to remove yourself from that said situations if you really need to.

If you still feel like you’re stuck in the middle of it and something in you is telling you to let it be, you can either politely remove yourself from it or speak about how you feel on the situation, either one of those will not only keep you from feeling uncomfortable, but you would have also let your feelings known and may have even defuse the situation a bit while you’re at it. We all know that with certain situations there are things we can add our input to, but there will also be situations where sometimes it’s better not to say anything, we all know that saying that goes “somethings are better left unsaid” which is true, i’m learning that not everything needs a responds, but i’m also learning that you shouldn’t stay quiet for everything either, if you know that something is messing with you or there’s a situation to where you can’t just ignore it then definitely speak up on it.

I always feel that if you’re going to speak up about what you feel you need to speak up on, you should always handle it maturely……..sometimes though even when you do handle it maturely the other person or whoever you’re talking to, may not handle the situation in the same way and that’s something that can really get to you and can make you have a very sour taste in not only your mouth, but in your mind as well and when that happens……weeeell, let’s just say it’s not good……..especially when there are two people with similar mindsets and personalities in a way. It can be very tough getting to someone who’s mindset is a mindset that you know deep down is hard to change, not saying you should ever change anyone and what they think because it’s not gonna happen especially when they have always used that way to help them in life.

What I am say though is when dealing with people who are hard to reach and you see that the conversation isn’t really getting anywhere, it’s best to just stop talking and move on from the situation because 1. It’ll keep you from getting annoyed fully while having a headache at the same time and 2. There’s no point in talking to someone who you know isn’t going to listen when it comes to what you’re wanting to say, however if you get the opportunity where the moment has presented itself to express your thoughts and emotions on something that still isn’t quite fixed, then give it another try and if it’s still the same then just leave it because you’re not gonna get anywhere, all you’re gonna do isΒ  continue to tire yourself out or get very fired up trying to get to someone who isn’t really gonna hear you anyway.

People who like to throw you into the mix of things without any warning because they need a second opinion on something or they like to target you on things, those are the kind of people you need to keep your eyes peeled for and kinda step away from a bit and just stay to yourself, but if you know that it’s impossible to keep away from people like that, just continue to stay to yourself, aquatint them, but make sure that you keep the things that are closest to you near you at all times, there’s a saying that goes “not everyone needs to know everything about you” they may know some things, but only share what is close to you with those who are sincerely important to you and who only bring joy, happiness and positivity into your life, because those are the ones who are gonna continue to be there for you when it matters most.

There’s nothing wrong with setting a few boundaries with people, especially if you know that they aren’t going to bring what it is that you need into your life, don’t let those kind of people who only tend to bring more negativity into your atmosphere tell you that you shouldn’t place boundaries with them. If you feel within yourself that the people you’re normally around or that you encounter aren’t the best people to keep in your circle and that they aren’t helping you in a positive way, know that it’s okay if you find yourself distancing away from them. It doesn’t mean you don’t care or love them in anyway, it just means that they aren’t the best people to have around when you are trying to move forward in your life, they may see and take what your doing as cruel and offensive, but don’t let that discourage you and make you feel a certain way, if it’s not good for you then it’s okay to let it go or at least distance yourself from it.

You may feel a little bad about it and think to yourself did I do the right thing!? but I want you to know that sure you may question yourself and think that what you did was horrible, but sometimes in order to live the life you want and in order to grow while going for your goals in life, you have to do that because that’s how you become a little more happier and that’s when you find yourself developing more confidence in yourself. Think of it as your some kind of animal so for example: A hermit crab or a snake just any animal that either outgrows it shell or sheds it’s skin, think of yourself as that animal and know that eventually there’s gonna be times where we outgrow certain things and sometimes people are one of them, think about it.

We’ve all have or had friends that we’ve hung out with since we were either kids or that we’ve met a little later in life, but we also know that we’ve had friends that we kinda drifted away from and haven’t spoken to in years not because we wanted to, but because either they weren’t healthy for us or because we outgrew them with the changes due to our personalities, mindset, different perspective on things, stuff like that and that isn’t a bad thing or anything it just happens, it doesn’t mean you planned on not speaking or hanging out again, it’s just something that happens to us in our lives, we’re always gonna outgrow something eventually that’s just apart of life. You can try and stay where you are, but you know that deep down, it isn’t gonna make you very happy, so when it comes to outgrowing something just embrace it and go with it, sure it may seem weird and uncomfortable at first, but once you let it sink in a bit, you’ll find that it’s not so bad.

Annnnnd that is all from me today, I hope you were able to take something from this and I hope I was able to be of some help if anyone out there is going through something like this, i’m learning a lot still and i’m just trying to embrace it a bit everyday, you don’t have to embrace it fully all at once, you can just do what i’m doing and let it come to you little by little, anyway I hope you all have a lovely night/morning and or evening πŸ™‚

Dear Little Me……

Dear Little Me,

I hope your doing okay, it’s been a while since you and I enjoyed times together you know……i’m not really sure what it is I want to say to you, but i’ve been thinking about you lately, I think about you all the time actually…….I always wonder if the things i’m doing are the right things for you……i’m gonna be honest with you because you deserve that, I feel I haven’t been doing us proud when it comes to helping you achieve more in life, I want to say i’m doing so much to make sure you’re happy and are enjoying yourself but I don’t think I am……and……I want to apologize to you for that, because you deserve to have good things, you deserve to be happy and to really see everything. I sit to myself a lot and go back and forth wondering if i’m making you proud to be me older…….I wish I was able to know what you think of me now…….

We’ve been through so much in our lives, we had to literally fight to be here and a lot of people don’t know that, some do, but others don’t……….a lot of people didn’t think we’d make it, but we did and that’s all because of the fight you put up for us to be here, i’ll tell you one thing you are a whole lot stronger and tougher than me for sure ha………the crazy part is i’m you older and I can’t even say that for myself now and i’m sorry for that, i’m sorry for putting so much stress on you, i’m sorry for not letting you reach your full potential when I know that you could be great, but most importantly i’m so sorry for neglecting you when I knew that you needed me………I didn’t mean to do that to you, you didn’t deserve that, especially when all you ever did was fight for us to be here………you were always a very happy person no matter what was happening and you were always the type of person who wanted to do her own thing even when people didn’t understand it……..I may not have told you this, but I always admired that about you.

You’ve helped me discover a lot of different things about us, like for one, did you know that we have a knack for editing!? We didn’t even learn from watching someone else, we just kinda picked it up ourselves after having to do a portfolio on our projects in school, it was a simple thing, but we made it more than simple and we we’re proud of it, although you did have me try and find a song for it first and you know what i’m glad you did because even our teacher thought it was good even though it was simple. She even admitted to being hard on us because she saw potential in our abilities which was surprising to hear, but it was also pretty nice to hear as well. Did you know that you became obsessed with journals…….yeah you have a few actually (17 to be exact) and they are all for different things, we really love writing, speaking of writing we started a blog last month and it’s actually growing too, I guess all the topics we love to talk about are really helping people and it’s helping us as well I think……..we haven’t written anything new though it’s been a few days, that would be my fault though, I kinda took us away from it, as I tend to always do with everything that we start………..

You always guide us to do things and you have us get to a good point and then I go and ruin any chance we had at making it really bloom and grow……..I don’t know what my problem is and why I keep doing that to you……..all you ever wanted was to be able to express yourself, while trying to have fun and while we’re enjoying ourselves, if we were lucky we’d help and make someone else’s day because we were just being us. I always wonder where you’ve gone because I know you’re still around, but you also hide away and I don’t know why!? Is it because of me, are you unhappy because i’m making you unhappy by the way i’m doing things!? if that’s what it is……..i’m really sorry……..I never meant to turn you this way and make you unhappy, all I ever did was try and make you very happy and I feel like I failed you in a way and I never intended to do that………I really miss you, you know!?…….I miss how you gave me confidence and how you didn’t care what anyone thought of you, because you always stood true to what you were, you didn’t care how weird you were or how much you spoke, you just enjoyed the moments.

You always laughed at everything and sure you were a little too sensitive for a lot of things, but that’s because you stayed firm to what you believed in, plus you had a different sense of humor to those who thought certain things were funny, your sense of humor was laughing at everything that didn’t make any sense to laugh at, expect certain things which I never understood and still don’t, but the thought of you just being happy and laughing at things that to most wasn’t funny, made me the happiest……..I always think back on when we were younger and how we’d play by ourselves with our dolls and make up stories for them, in all honesty we’d find anything that entertained us to play with, we were very weird, still are actually, but that’s because we we were always just happy and so full of life……….you always tried to be friends with everyone and always wanted to be around people even when they didn’t always liked being around you, even when that happened though you still made the most of each day……

After a while though we kinda started to become very quiet and to ourselves because of the fact we got so use to being alone and so when it came to being around people you didn’t mind it, you enjoyed hanging out with people, but as we got older we started spending our time with certain people, is that a bad thing, no I don’t think it is, it’s just the way we are and some people may not like it, but it’s not about them, it’s about you and me. There’s a lot of things I could go over here about you, but all I really……I guess want to say is 1. i’m really sorry for abandoning you and not taking care of you as I should have, we we’re literally inseparable and you always made me stay true to who we were for so long and I kinda forgot about that and i’m really sorry 2. I miss you and how happy and excited you got every time something brought you joy, knowing we were happy made everyday a little better even when we didn’t have the best of days, we always tried to make the most of it…….There’s a lot of things though that we’ve adapted into our lives that we once didn’t have, the main thing being Anxiety we found out that we had it at a late age (late teens) and we battle through it everyday, i’m not gonna lie to you little me, although we don’t get it everyday when it does hit us, it hits us pretty hard, but we need to keep in mind that, it doesn’t define us okay, we are who we choose to be……..

Sure we may live with being anxious a lot more often then we’d like, but we have the power to let it consume us or fight against it and i’ll always do my best to make sure we fight against it more than i’ve been doing lately……there’s a lot more I can tell you, but this would be a very long blog post, I mean it’s already 1,368 words in and still counting. The main thing I want to say to you though was how sorry I am for how I treated you, I shouldn’t have done that to you and i’m gonna do my very best to make sure that from here on forth I make you proud to be me older in the best way that I can, because I don’t ever want to let you down again if I did, I hope that you can forgive me and that you come around a little more and help us achieve what it is we want to achieve without hesitation and with a bit more confidence because I want to make sure I do you well this time and know that you’re happy again……..I will do my best to only focus on all things positive and all things good, so that you can feel okay and feel safe, we can do it and we will, we just need to believe more in ourselves and build our confidence again……..

That’s everything I want to say to you I guess, hope you’re doing alright and I want you to always keep this in mind, you are worth every struggle we had to go through and all the things you blamed yourself for isn’t your fault, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise, we got this far together who says we can’t continue on, we will get where we want to be…….we just have to work hard towards it and it maybe a bit scary, but we can do it…….I know we can, together we can do anything that we put our minds to, we just have to keep remembering why it is we started in the first place and then keep going every time.

Feeling Like You’re Not Making Progress (Inspired Blog Post)

So I was watching one of my favorite Youtuber’s earlier and the video that I watched was titled “When You’re Not Making Progress” the topic was discussed by a British Youtuber named Lucy Moon, she talks about a lot of different things on her channel, surrounded by life, she has podcast and this really cool monthly series called The Sunday Social (I don’t always watch them on Sundays I pick and choose when I want to watch it haha……ehm…..anyway) her channel is pretty much on the lifestyle sort of town at least I would say, she runs her channel a specific way that I enjoy, but anyway back to the topic of this blog post…….So I was watching her video and she was talking about how when it comes to making progress in our life be it within ourselves, relationships, the things we do and just life in general, no matter how hard we work sometimes for some people we don’t always end up where we think we should be.

She also talked about how it can be very frustrating to know that you’re putting in the hard work with everything that you’re doing and you still end up not really moving in the direction that you want to move in and having that feeling of “well i’m doing everything here and yet I still feel like i’m getting nowhere” that kind of feeling can really put a damper on you and make you unmotivated to want to do anything. She also talked about what she learned saying, even when it gets to that point, you should still keep pushing and work hard because even though you may not be at that point in your life that you want to be, you should still keep going because eventually all that hard work will pay off in the end, so that’s what I want to talk about.

I want to put my thoughts in to what she was saying in her video because when I watched it, everything she was saying, I too had those feelings before and i’m still going through those feeling in a way sometimes, but i’m also learning that if you want to get somewhere, hard work, determination and consistency (is the key word for me) is what you have to keep your focus on if you want to move forward, as well as small steps too. She then compared her life and work schedule with all of her friends, saying how they’re doing so much more than what she’s doing and said how everyone knows that comparing yourself to others isn’t the best thing to do, we all do it and it’s just one of those habits that we find hard to get rid of, because most times we’re surrounded by people who have already achieved so much and here we are just kinda on the same boat, floating by wishing we were in their shoes andΒ that kind of thing can lead to discouragement for some people.

We start to think to ourselves “oh well, since i’m not where everyone else is in my life, is it even worth continuing doing what i’m doing!?” and the answer to that is yes, do continue, because yeah sure it’s hard and it’s super super frustrating to put so much hard work, heart and soul into something and yet still feel like no matter how much hard work you put in to everything, it’s like you still don’t move and you know you’re working really hard, but sometimes things just don’t happen to us as quickly as others or as we would like it too, but even when that happens that still shouldn’t discourage you from continuing building what it is you have already built for yourself.

We get so caught up in other people lives that, we start to have this mindset because someone else did it, we did it……..but they’re moving forward and we’re in the same position and with still being where we are, we tend to kick ourselves down and wonder why we can’t have that kind of life and the thing is, we can…….we’re just too afraid to and so instead of working toward giving ourselves the kind of life we want to have, we just kinda start to envy other people for having the exact life we dream of having and that’s not good, because we shouldn’t ever compare our lives to someone else’s. Everyone has a story to them that we don’t know and everyone has a battle they go through that we don’t see or even acknowledge. My point though is I went off topic…….I meant to talk about making progress no matter how slow you go, but it just ended up turning into when you’re not making progress so we’re just gonna roll with it okay, yeah, cool….awesome!!

So let’s talk feeling like you’re not making progress especially when everyone around you is in a world where everything they do gets them to a place so much faster compared to where it gets us……..we all know that progress is all about doing things in the pace you’re able to handle, hence why it’s called progress, it’s all about how much and how well you’re doing that will determine how everything else is gonna go in your life, so if you do things slowly it might go a little bit slow, but if you’re the kind of person to get things done when they need to be done then, you’re not really gonna have a problem with getting to the places that you want to get to. Some of us are turtles (me) and others are bunnies (my boyfriend) just giving you some examples on what i’m talking about.

Anyway you shouldn’t think of progress as a race is what i’m getting at, everyone has their own pace that they go at, some are slower while others are a bit faster and that’s okay, you don’t need to try and out run everyone, you just do things your way and at your own pace. Progress is all about building, it takes time to progress in something, first comes an idea of some sort, then there’s a goal you’re trying to reach and then from there you keep working toward building to get to that goal and the more you keep on going the quicker you get there, it may not be right away, but you’ll always come close to reaching it.

Progress like I said takes time, sure we may all want things to happen to us right away, but if we’re being real we know that it’s not, it doesn’t mean we won’t ever get there it just means that we’ll have to go through the dirt a bit to get there. I’m not saying you have to throw yourself through the dirt fully (okay maybe sometimes) but you’ll have to get a little messy and you’ll find that getting a little messy is sometimes worth it………..unless you just bought yourself some new clothes and you’re having the best day ever and then out of nowhere something happens to where you get your clothes dirty and your now standing there shocked, angry and ready to scream your heart out because you just got your new clothes dirty…….but besides that getting messy is worth it sometimes.

It’s okay if you start things off a bit late or slower than others when trying to make progress in reaching your goals, keep in mind that in order for others to have reached their goals it too took them some time, but they still got there and you will too. Don’t sweat on how long it’s taking you to reach your goal, it may not happen for you right then and there, but know that you’ll get there soon enough, just keep on going and keep on working hard and know that eventually your time will come, the more progress you make from constantly going, the closer and sooner you’ll get to where you want to be. Keep your head up, mind focused and keep on filling that progress bar of yours, you’ll be happy that you did and remember don’t worry about what everyone else is doing because it only matters what you’re doing and how proud you’ll make yourself in the end.

That is all from me for now, I hope this helps some of you and you’re able to take something from this, if you’re interested in wanting to watch the video I was talking about you can watch it here:Β When You’re Not Making Progress (Lucy Moon)Β It’s a really good video and me watching it helped me feel better about myself and it helped me just kinda accept that it doesn’t matter how slow you go, as long as you just keep going and i’m doing my best to remind myself everyday of that. Maybe you’ll also learn something from this video like I did and who knows you might actually find yourself someone new to watch, I would recommend watching her other videos too because I think she’s great, I love watching her videos because 1. Their cozy, 2. You can sometimes learn from her videos and 3. She’s just great, I know I said that already, but it’s true……but yeah I hope that you enjoy the video. If you don’t that’s fine, it doesn’t have to be for everyone, but I just wanted to share this with you guys just in case you want to check it out, if you do like Lucy Moon and content videos show her some love and support, i’m sure she’ll appreciate it, but anyway I hope you’re all having a lovely day and if not well I hope you find something to make your day better πŸ™‚ (Originally Written Aug 13th)Β

Those Who See Your Light, Catch It And Then Release It Are The Kind Of Supporters You Should Keep……

Now you’re probably wondering where exactly am I going with this when you see the title of this blog post and honestly, i’m not sure where i’m going with this, but I do hope it goes somewhere and it makes some kind of sense when you read it. I wasn’t really sure what kind of post I would be writing about today, I normally start my writing around the early afternoon, sometimes in the morning depending on which direction my brain wants to go that day, but i’m writing this blog post around 2:30pm my time not too far from 3pm so by the time you read this it would already have past of course…….I wanted to talk about supporters you know those who support you, but not just that, they also try and help you grow more and see you as this light that because they know how talented you are and how much potential you have, they do their best to try and help you see that as well if that makes sense, i’m sure I already spoke about having a good support system and having those who see the best in you when you don’t really see it in yourself, heck no I know I did, but i’m trying to explain this differently so I really hope i’m able to do it right.

Supporters are something special, you could do something for a bit and go around trying other things in the process and they’ll always cheer you on no matter what it is you do, they will always let you know that they are there rooting for you even when you’re not your best self. Those are what I like to call true supporters because they will always take your best interest at heart and they’ll always want to see you do well for yourself, but the most incredible thing that I love about true supporters is they don’t expect you to be perfect and they will always make sure you know that if you ever need a hand they are there.

No ones perfect, no amount of trying to be perfect will make you perfect, most people think that in order to get somewhere you have to do everything right and make sure that you don’t ever make a mistake, because the minute you make a mistake that’s it everything comes crashing down and everyone who once supported you all turn their back on you because you did something wrong……but those who turn their back on you and give up on you before you could even stand up to explain or try and make things better, those aren’t your kind of supporters, because even if you mess up and you find yourself as low as dirt, those who really took the time to understand you and get to know and see the person inside they always stay, you may think you’ve lost everyone, but the true supporters and those who are on your side will continue to be on your side no matter how bad you fall and hurt yourself.

People with a deeper soul and who also deal with accepting that they aren’t perfect are always drawn to those who embrace and accept their imperfections, even if sometimes they have doubts within themselves, they still appreciate and admire those who have falling so deep, but have always found a way to get back up and still walk through so much even when that person ends up becoming lost and not really having a direction in that moment. There’s a saying that goes: not all who wander are lost, which is true, but I also would say that if you do become lost, you will eventually find your way by wandering a bit, but just know that people respect those who fail miserably because they know that a real human being isn’t perfect no matter what anyone says.

Everyone has their flaws, but just because we hit a few bumps along the way doesn’t mean that we’re failures, there will always be someone there who sees you as something more than what you think you are and while you’re doing your best to share your light in the way you’re able to even though you know that you’re not perfect, know that the people who support you endlessly will catch some of the light that you hold within and save it for you just in case you ever burn out. Know that they’ll bring you the light that you shared with them without knowing, they will give it back to you to let you know that they believe in you as well as to let you know that when you are down they will lift you up with all the love/light and support they have for you and help keep you going whenever you feel like you’re unable to.

That kind of love and support is one of the best feelings in the world hey even universe because when you have people or even one person believe so much in you to the point where you start to believe in yourself nothing in the world would be able to top a feeling like that, sure you have similar feelings like that, but not to the point where you really feel it so much it, you become speechless and sometimes emotional. For those who show you that you are more than what you care to believe, those are keepers and also the kind of people who truly resonate with you, always keep those true supporters close by and let them know from time to time, how much you really appreciate them and how grateful you are to have them be apart of not just the things you do, but also how grateful you are to them for taking the time to really understand you as person each time you grew into someone new and how much gratitude you have for them not ever leaving your side or giving up on you even when they probably should’ve, but the fact that they didn’t and they still believed and saw greatness in you that’s real support.

That is all from me for now, I just wanted to let you know I started writing this yesterday but didn’t finish until now so the time finished 3:43pm Aug 9th with a little bit of editing at around 10:50pm. Anyway hope you all are able to take something from this blog post, I know I probably said this before in one of my other blog post, but thank you to those who take the time to read my blogs and are supporting it, it means a whole lot and I appreciate all of you so much so thanks again, i’m gonna do my best to continue to bring you all the best possible blog post that I can, i’m not perfect at them, but I always try my best, but it means a lot knowing that you all still enjoy it, hope you all have a goodnight/morning and or evening. πŸ™‚

Thought Of The Day/Night #2: Sky’s Not The Limit, It’s The Way Of Going Places…..

Do you ever just look into the sky and watch the birds and the planes go by and wonder to yourself what it would be like if you were a bird or if you were on that plane where exactly would you be headed!? I do, I always look in the sky and think to myself I wonder where those planes are going, who’s on it and how I wish I could be on it too…….Sometimes I look at the birds and wonder where they’re going as well. Looking at the sky really makes you think about everything because when you look toward the sky, you also reflect on things around you and it makes you think about where it is you want to go in your life. They say the sky’s the limit, but no…….I say that it’s the way of going places, which if you really think about it, is actually true, there’s no limit on where you can or can not go when you’re in the sky, you can go anywhere as long as you have the things you need stuff like passport, suitcase all that stuff……….we always look towards the sky in the morning and evening, but do you guys also look up at the sky at night!?

That ones my favorite, I love looking at the sky during the night, there’s just something about the sky when the sun goes down and the moon comes out especially when it’s joined by the stars, ohhh how pretty the stars are in the night………whenever I see lots of stars in the sky i’m always amazed, the way they light up the night and the way they look……it’s really nice. Getting to see a full moon as well is a pretty sight to see too, I mean who doesn’t love a full moon right!? Sometimes if you’re lucky, you’ll even see a planet in the night sky, you won’t be able to spot it with a naked eye of course, but if you have a telescope you’ll be able to see it clearly then, I was always interested in wanting to get a telescope that way I could see the stars and planets up close or as close as it would get.

People who own telescopes are lucky because they’re able to see the sky and everything in a whole different view to what we see it as with just our eyes, we maybe able to look at the sky, but we won’t get to see the stars and planets up close to what we would in a telescope or one of those observatories, but even if we don’t have a telescope to help see the stars and planets better, it’s still quite nice to just be able to take in everything, look into the night sky and just get lost in it, you can do that in the morning as well, but for me it’s the night time with the stars and the moon sitting in the sky that gets me, although I do too enjoy looking up into the morning and evening sky, with that I get to see the trees dance along with the wind while getting to feel the wind around me as well.

We’re lucky to be able to always see beauty within the sky whether it’s dark or it’s light, either way we’re always presented with something extraordinary whether that’s seeing a blue sky with clouds floating by in the A.M. or getting to see a black sky followed by some stars, a moon and sometimes planets during the late hours ( I was gonna say P.M. buuut I couldn’t think of anything to go with it, plus I didn’t think it made sense) I don’t really have a lot to say and I don’t think there’s any lesson to this blog post, I just wanted to talk about the sky today, I don’t know why………hopefully you still enjoyed this in someway, feel free to tell me what your thoughts are whenever you look into the sky, I know that everyone has a different perspective on things and I would love to hear what your perspective is on this random topic if you have one. Anyway I hope you all have a goodnight/morning and or evening πŸ™‚

How To Get Started On Something Even When You Don’t Know Where To Start……

Based off the title here we can all say that this has happened to us at some point in our lives, we go to start something thinking “Okay here we go, we can do this, time to be productive.” then we come face to face with the tasks we have set for us to do and what happens!? We stand in front of it wondering and pondering on which task to start with first……I tell you if that doesn’t mess with your brain a bit, then you must be the worlds calmest person. A lot of the time I have this problem where I have so many ideas going around in my head and I never know how to just pick one thing to do and so when that happens I start to get discouraged and then I end up not doing anything at all which isn’t good I know, because then you’re not giving yourself the chance to make progress in what you’re doing while also not letting yourself succeed at something. So what do you do when you have all these ideas and or tasks to take on, but aren’t really sure which one to start with first!?

Well it’s pretty simple just pick one, it’s really not as complicated as we make it seem in all honesty, although we may have a lot of different things to do, we don’t really need to make it as stressful trying to choose which tasks to take on first, just choose one and focus on it. For those who are probably thinking “well it’s easier said then done you know!?” i’ll agree with you there yes, it is easier said then done, so if you’re one of those people who have a hard time picking something to do, maybe you can try some randomization to help you choose, what do I mean by randomization you ask!? Weeeell i’m talking about one of those wheel of tasks things if that makes any sense……Let me elaborate, okay so if you’re ever in the middle of trying to decide which task to take on, maybe trying a different approach compared to just pondering what to do first will help.

Try Being Creative For One:Β Maybe if you make your decision making a little more fun then it will seem a little more easier for you (Only when it comes to your ideas or writing, if it’s super important then you’ll have to rationalize and take the important ones seriously) back to what I was saying………..say you have two video or blog post ideas you want to do, for example: you want to do a blog or video idea based off planets and what it would be like if we lived on Venus instead of Earth (oh wait I just gave myself an idea, thanks self i’m using this) you can use it as well if you want to put your opinion on what you think it would be like, but anyway, you want to do a video or blog post about what it would be like living on Venus instead of Earth right!? but you also want to do a blog/video idea on what it would be like if you had your very own Funko pop (for those who don’t know what Funko’s are they’re just little collectables, I have a few) so which one do you choose!? Do you chose living on Venus or what it would be like if you had your own Funko Pop!? hard decision to make right!?

Well how about trying this, put those two ideas in a hat/jar which ever you prefer or you can write it down on a board or paper, close your eyes and then just hold your hand out move it back and forth and which ever one your hand lands on that’s the one you do first or you can just pick from the jar or hat and see which one you get, why make it difficult when you can just be creative about it (i’d try this).

Now say you have more than two ideas, maybe you have 5 you want to choose from, just do the same thing I talked about a minute ago when it comes to being creative and having to chose which ideas to work on first, that way if it gets stressful you have a way to make it none stressful and have it becomes a lot more easier for you to get things done quicker, plus you’ll have fun. You can even do more than one idea on the same day if you really want to, just choose 2 ideas you’re really feeling up for and do one in the morning if you’re a morning person and one in the evening if you work better that way, you can even do one at night if you’re a night owl. If you really wanted to, you could take one of those ideas and make a video about one and write a blog post about the other, It’s all about what your preference is, so whatever works for you, you can just focus on doing that, sometimes being creative can really help boost your brain and get it going.

Now let’s talk about important decision making, when it comes to having to really focus on something really important, the creative way may not always work………but that doesn’t mean it still can’t be simple, yeah sure when making important decisions it may cause us to have a headache from time to time, but we can still try and make it a little bit easier. Here’s how if you’re wondering:

Go Through Your Important List And Choose The Most Important:Β You might be confused right now so i’m gonna do my best to make you unconfused, there are a lot of things we find to be super important on our list and we have to choose which one of those things are top of the list important, so what do you do!? Well depending on what you have on your list as super important, you would need to really sit down and ponder which one of those tasks you need to put more of your focus on, now I could chose examples, but I don’t really have the best ones, but i’ll still give it a try………hmmmm let’s see……..oh okay say you have on your list: Need to go grocery shopping, but then you also know you have to do some decluttering in your home, which one do you feel needs to be at the top of your list the most!? Some may say grocery shopping, others will say decluttering, which ever one you think should be number 1 on your important list write it down. If you’re ever stuck on what to focus on the most just look at your list and think to yourself (don’t over think it) but just take a look at the list you have in front of you and just go over all the important stuff that’s there and number them based on what’s really important and what’s not as important.

Doing the stuff that’s really important first, helps you really break down everything and just makes your important list a lot easier to handle, if you just lay everything out and write it down and really analyze your list of important stuff, then you’ll be able to really work things out better and make everything less stressful and much more calmer in your busy productive schedule and or day. If you find yourself having trouble balancing everything out, try asking a friend for help, maybe they can try and sort some balance out for you so that way the tasks you have at hand don’t become too overwhelming, plus it’ll help you deal with everything a little better, you’ll have someone there to not only help you with your day, but to also help with ideas, whenever you’re struggling to come up with some yourself and you’ll also have someone to keep you on your toes whenever you’re going off track. Having someone there that you trust to help you stay on your feet and organized really does help a lot.

Annnd that is all from me for now, If this post helped you in some way and you were able to take something from this, please feel free to leave some feedback with your thoughts if you like and if you have other ways or ideas on how to get started on something when you don’t know where exactly to start, feel free to share. Who knows maybe your ideas will help someone else out and I too might possibly adopt your ideas as well, anyway I hope you all have a lovely night/morning and or evening πŸ™‚

Clouded Mind, Trying Times And Uncertainty……

When you’re dealing with a clouded mind, it’s hard to shake it off right away, although you may try your hardest, we all know that it ain’t always easy getting rid of the thoughts that form within that little cloud we got following us around everywhere, sometimes it grows so big that the cloud ends up changing into a storm cloud making our mood change with it and now we’re walking around wondering when that storm cloud is gonna part from us. Clouded minds form in different ways, sometimes they happen when you wake up in the morning or during the middle of your day, they can pretty much occur anytime of the day, you could be having the best morning and once the afternoon comes rolling around there goes your thoughts and all the happiness you had going for you………clouds of thoughts aren’t always a bad thing though, sometimes they help you reflect on your day or help you sort through certain things that need sorting, however clouded thoughts can also make your mood go from a 5 to 9 (you never want to get to a 10 because then that’s when the lighting strikes)

Now let’s talk about trying times, I know there’s like a 3 word saying with trying times but I can’t remember exactly what the other two are, so we’re just gonna go with the theme I created…..anyway, trying times……….i’m not sure if anyone has a different meaning when it comes to trying times, but to me trying times has to do with dealing with all the things around you, but still trying your best to get through them, i’ll be honest today i’m not really having the best of days, but i’m trying to still get through the day and try and make the most of it as much as I can. On a good note, it’s been raining and if I haven’t said it already I enjoy the rain, every time it rains I always go outside and just take it in……I don’t know I guess I just like the feel of it and the way it comes down, it’s just really nice.

Back to trying times though (Sorry got caught up talking about the rain ha) like I was saying trying times is going through life and the day and just trying to see the better picture in something that you really aren’t feeling in that moment, but you’re still determined to try and understand and get it, even though some days are tough compared to when you’re having a good day. Trying times is having someone you care about go through something and you wanting to help, but you’re unable to do so in the way that you want to, yet you still do your best to make sure they know that you’re there when they need you and you’re always gonna be there because they mean so much to you. It’s just all about how even when you know or feel like you aren’t able to really get into something that you might normally, you still try and you still do your best because you have to and because you want to be strong in a situation that isn’t always easy to be strong in, but you do it because you feel that it’s gonna be worth it at some point and you want to prove to yourself that you can stay strong and what you’re feeling is only temporary.

Now let’s get into our last topic here……..Uncertainty, everyone deals with uncertainty in their lives, some more than others, whether that be because their whole life that’s all they dealt with growing up or it occurred down the line due to a mental scaring based off an event that took place in their life and so now with certain things they tend to worry about whether something will work out or not or if what their doing in their life is good or bad for them. Dealing with uncertainty and having those doubtful moments aren’t the best feeling, because it puts you in such an anxious or paranoid mode that when you try and escape it, it just kinda brings everything back and then you start to question everything and it just becomes such a heavy weigh on you to the point where you feel like you just hit a brick wall without even realizing that you were even walking in that direction. You can try and tell yourself that you have nothing to worry about and for a bit it will work, but it will only put that feeling to a halt for but so long until that brick wall comes tumbling down on you making everything 1,000 times worst then it was already.

Some may think that it’s easy to get rid of uncertainty once you feel it by telling yourself you’re fine, brush yourself off and keep moving, but for some people it’s not always that easy, it can take them a very long time to get out of that mindset and if you’re dealing with that quite often, sometimes you need someone there to help and reassure you that everything’s gonna be fine and that you will be there to help them get through those uncertainties that they are facing. It’s gonna take a lot of patience and everything because it will come and go for them, but as long as you let them know that no matter what you’re there for them they’ll be fine, it doesn’t matter how many times they need reassurance, you’ll always be there to make sure they’re okay and let them know that with you they are safe and they’re not alone, because you’re gonna help them get through it and for some that may seem like a lot of reassuring, but if you really care and love someone truly, that won’t matter because to you they are a priority and it’s important to show them that their happiness and wellbeing is important as well.

We all have different mindsets and people think that some of us are able to shake things off quickly, but it’s not always that easy, some of us need a little more time to really understand our thoughts and others may need someone to help them through theirs and that’s okay. So if you’re ever having a clouded mind, don’t be afraid to process your thoughts and sort them out, know that you will get through trying times even if it doesn’t feel like you will, you just have to give it time and lastly when you’re feeling uncertain or you’re dealing with uncertainties in your life, know that you don’t need to deal with it alone, I know it feels like there’s just so much going on and maybe there is, but know that everything will be okay and there’s always someone there to help you through your uncertainties.

That is my blog post for the day, I hope that some of you were able to take something from this and hopefully found this really helpful if you are dealing with anyone of these things, with that I hope you all have a goodnight/morning and or evening πŸ™‚

Go With The Flow But Also Know That Having A Plan Is Important Too…..

Going with the flow of things is good, because it lets you explore a lot of different things around you and helps you discover a little bit more about yourself, without really having to feel like you need to already know who you are, you can just discover it along the way, however once you do find out certain things about yourself and everything around you, eventually you’re gonna have to also come up with some sorta plan on what is you want out of life based off the things you’ve discovered, now don’t go freaking out about not having a plan for everything, you don’t really need a plan for everything, just certain things you want to accomplish in your life. You see when you have a plan, you also give yourself a chance to create a new goal in your day to day life and once you achieve that goal, you then feel good and want to see what other goals you can achieve, it’s kinda like having a new years resolution only you know with this one, you’ll actually go through with it, we all know that new years resolutions don’t really do us any good because it’s just something we tell ourselves we’re gonna do and then once the new year arrives we forget it and just continue to go about our day and everyday we get once it’s a new year.

When you have a plan on something it helps you stay productive and helps you build towards the goals your trying to get to, it’s okay if your goals aren’t super big, goals don’t have to be really big, sometimes starting off small works in wonders and once you complete that small goal, you’ll then want to strive for something bigger than that firstΒ  goal you made for yourself, for example: Say your goal is to buy a new guitar and piano, but you know that you only have enough to get one or the other, but you really want to buy them in a set, in order to get both you’ll need the right amount to get both the guitar and piano, so what do you do!? do you go and buy the guitar first and come back for the piano when you have enough money or do you just not bother because you can’t get them both at the same time!? I would hope that 1. what I just said made sense and 2. that you just ended up getting either the guitar or piano instead of getting upset that you weren’t able to get them both at the same time.

Sometimes the goals we have aren’t always reachable at first and we have to work hard to get to those goals that we are trying to reach for, so even if you weren’t able to get both the guitar and or piano, at least you were able to get 1 of them so you should be happy that one of your goals was met, say you bought the piano first, now you can add next goal: buy a guitar and work towards getting that wonderful guitar you have your eyes on. In the mean time while you’re working towards getting that new guitar, you can practice the piano and once you feel like you have it down alright, soon you’ll realize that all your hard work payed off and now you have another goal to strive for and that’s master the guitar next. You see what i’m talking about!? Once you finish a goal, you’ll keep wanting to add more and then once that goal is completed, you’ll want to add another and another and so on………putting down a goal and then completing it after a while, really helps you achieve things on your day to day life and it’ll make you want to take on other goals you have in mind.

Think of a goal as present……..that your unable to open until you finish that said goal that you put down. We all know you want that present and you’re now wondering, but wait what’s in that said present!? I don’t know………or maybe I do and i’m not gonna tell you because then it’ll ruin the surprise that your goal wants you to have. Now you’re gonna turn your focus on that said goal just so you’re able to find out what’s in store for you once you reach and complete your goal and that was the plan, to makes sure that if you want to know what’s inside of that said present, you gotta first complete a goal you have going, that is when you will receive the surprise waiting for you to open. Having plans and creating goals for that plan shouldn’t be something to be discouraged from if it feels like it’s unreachable, sure you may not be able to get there right away, but you know that if you were to work hard and keep trying to reach all the goals that you created in order to get there, eventually you will.

Now be aware that you’re not always going to be able to reach every goal you have written down on a list, some will work and some won’t, but it’s okay if not all of your goals are met, they’re not mean’t to all be met, some are just there for ideas or just to kinda fill your goal list, so it’s not just one thing on that said list. Goals are there to help you have a visual on the things that you are wanting or needing in order to get closer to where you’re headed, that way you’ll be able to look back at that blueprint you made and set out on your work table figuratively or if you actually have one and analyze how far you got and where you are within the blueprint, so every time you complete a goal, you can always review your blueprint and check how much you’re progressing and how close you are to completing the goal.

If you want to achieve something that you feel is a little intimidating to where it’s making you feel discourage, just write down some goals to help you get where you have your mind and heart set on and once you complete that first goal all the other ones will just flow right through you and you will feel less intimidated and more courages and before you know it, you would have either gotten close to your goal or you would have completed it fully and not have even realized it until you went and checked your blueprint, remember your goal is a present waiting to be opened and if you want to see what surprises it has for you, then you better get going and work towards finishing that first goal of yours.

Anyway that’s all from me, I hope you were able to take something from todays blog post and I also hope it made sense, I don’t really have much to say here so I hope you all have a goodnight/morning and or evening. πŸ™‚
