For many people, being LGBTQ+ can still be challenging, as many countries criminalize queerness. It is also hard to live in a world where sometimes we feel that everything is set up straight, which can damage the mental health of many queer people. Research has shown that LGBTQ+ folks are more susceptible to mental health problems than heterosexual people due to a range of factors, including discrimination and inequalities.
I was excited! I had just finished watching my very first video about the Law of Attraction. Immediately I picked up my phone to tell my sister about it.
When lockdown started and I was (luckily) furloughed from my job, I started googling loads of productive things I could do with my new-found time. Since graduating nearly two years ago in the creative sector, I'm always looking for new ways to build upon my skills and make myself more employable for my "dream job".
I believe the world is spinning. Of course, scientifically, I know that it is. But I actually felt it myself, once. I was fourteen and my bare shoulders were pressing into a cold, tiled floor. I wiggled my toes, laying in the fetal position, while gravity held me down in a pool of my own vomit. The planet swung me around the sun, in the greatest waltz. I was dizzy and could not get up, but I did not want to get up.
We get up everyday without living a full life but a partial life not knowing what the day will amount to. Will it be a good day? Will it be a bad day? Will I be able to pay my bills? Are my kids gonna be okay?How am I gonna make it? Stressed about the future. But do you ever ask your self what is my purpose? If I were to die today and my life flashed before my eyes would I be happy with my life? Would I be able to look my creator in the eyes and face that judgement? What if there is really a creator someone who created me? A creator that knows how many pieces of hair are on my head! A creator who created me with a purpose to make a difference in the world and the life of others! What if I am someone that is an important piece to a puzzle and I'm living the wrong life that I was greater than what I've been living?! That you were created for a time like this!
One of the biggest problems many people face when it comes to fitness is either the motivation to start or the motivation to continue. Even if you're 3 or 4 months into your fitness lifestyle there may be a day where you're just not feeling it, everyone goes through it. When it comes to fitness, consistency is key to reaching your goals! Now I'm not saying you can't have your off days, we're only human and that's normal to experience.
Life can be challenging, there’s no doubt about that. If you’re going through a tough time right now, know that you’re not a lone because the one thing that we as humans have in common is experiencing the ups and downs of life. Some of us battle our hardships in private, while others go through things that every one seems to know or find out about. But no matter how difficult it may be, I want you to know that everything, including bad times eventually comes to an end. Every one has their own story and that’s part of what makes us unique as individuals. But here’s a secret: YOU decide how your story ends. If life seems to be overwhelming you, this post is for you. Because I want you to succeed and I know that you have the potential to do so. Here are five things to remember while going through life:
I am not a fan of William Shakespeare’s writings. I have to admit; the guy added to our language through his use of the language. He’s credited with the first use of the word “gnarled” in 1604 in his play “Measure for Measure”.
