What are you thankful for?
What am I thankful for? That's a hard question for me. I'm not kidding. I like to call myself a bit of a rain cloud. I made a turkey hand once a few years back around Thanksgiving while spending time on self improvement. I struggled with coming up with ideas all the way back then. I only had to pick five things to be thankful for then, but still it can be quite the challenge- especially when you're locked into a state of depression.
100 Happy Days: Part 1
Hey there guys. I decided to challenge myself to be happy for 100 days in a row. I have struggled with depression most of my life. It was a real eye opener the first time I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. So I wanted to challenge myself to perform this happiness project again after being suicidal for the last little while. I posted the images on my Instagram but I thought I would write about it as well. In a way, it is kind of like journaling my days out but I did think that other people would find this interesting.
Red My Lips Campaign
***Trigger warning sexual violence... read with caution*** Have you ever heard of this powerful sexual violence campaign called Red My Lips? I have been a follower of this organization for years and I love everything that they stand for. April is Sexual Assault Awareness month! With 'Thirteen Reasons Why' now becoming even more increasingly popular, I feel as if this post is needed. People like the fictional character, Bryce Walker on 'Thirteen Reasons Why' exist and they happen to exist in our communities. I think it is important to stand up for the survivors that cannot speak for themselves and stand with the ones that can.
I am Enough
Statements of affirmations often help rewire negative brain functions. As I began this post I realized that the words I was writing were turning into affirmations instead of a poem. Your brain can process a significant amount of information every single second. I think that it is important to consume positive content, especially while you're struggling. So it takes everything you think and say literally. When you speak to yourself and others in a positive way, it changes you on a DNA level in my opinion. I always felt ugly after being mean to someone.
