keeping my eyes wide open

I know I havent posted in a while the reason being I had no 'advice' or wisdom shall I say to impart. Today I came back from my sister's house- she lives in West London. It was refreshing to say the least. Its actually strange I honestly didnt even know my mind was so cloudy or bogged down. The only reason I knew was because when I came back I felt so much more happier or relieved? Whichever it was it helped.

Thats the thing I think it often happens to us all, we are so wrapped up in our lives and the constant negativity we feel its normal or rather we are so accustomed to it we know no bette how to overcome it. Its not that we dont want to sometimes we dont even know how to help ourselves.

Think to yourself. When you wake up every day how do you feel? How do you feel about challenges in your life? Do you ever feel genuinely happy? It is a sad truth that I am not always genuinely happy. But its not because im ungrateful sometimes its our minds and the constant cycle we are feeding. We need to break it. How?

Do things that scare you. Theme parks, leading a project but..
 It doesnt have to be big. As funny as it may sound watching a scary movie helps me. Thats probably why I am a bit of a horror addict.

Connect with Nature. Its so important to just see nature. Theres so much profound beauty in nature its unbelievable. I like watching the water move in lakes and seas. I like watching flames too, i could sit there for hours just watching.

Indulge in your personality. What i mean by that is if you are an introvert, take time alone. ( i can help you out there im hugely introverted) whether its reading or going cinemas alone do what makes you happy, what gives you peace of mind. But if youre an extrovert maybe organise a get together hang out with loved ones have a meaningful conversation with someone. Whatever you feel comfortable with.

Take a week to just relax dont do any chores or bogged down serious stuff just have fun. I mean it you deserve a break, you might think youre okay but youre subconscious disagrees with you!

Stop thinking so much (in regards to responsibilities, stresses, and whatever takes up your thoughts)and if you dont already, well done! Im super happy for you!

Try and do headstands(do it with caution and learn how to do it the right way using step by step guides) they are good for digestion, blood flow and relieving stress and anxiety!(i started today will let you know how it goes!)

Dont bottle up your anger (this is more for introverts) that is not to say release it on whom so ever treads in your path but release through other means
 Whether you rant to a friend, or cry about it, or even write about it, do it! But ive found talking about it helps. You could do all of them! Karaoke is good for that aswell I suppose sing away your anger!(in your worst voice!)

Start doing things for yourself as well as for others!its important we remember ourselves but also others.

Lastly think carefully about the direction of your life. Are you going where you want to? If you are not, think about how you change that.

Happy music

Life takes us through so many hurdles, so many journeys so many discoveries of ourselves. Do we ever just sit and think about how we came to be the person that we are now? I know I have been through a whirlwind of different personalities, different phases, feelings, thoughts, dreams. However I have remained somewhat constant- what I admire about myself is that I believe in myself (not necessarily my abilities) but I believe and support my actions regardless, and ... I'm glad I have strong principles, I guess it makes me who I am. Despite what I've had to sacrifice for them.Over the years I've always wondered who I'd be. In fact when I was younger I would dream of how I would be when I was older. (Older being past 20's) I'd imagine I would magically transform into this strong, independent, accomplished woman. And it would somehow come to be at this magical transition to adulthood. Oh how I would tell myself it's not that simple. Life is not that simple. We n…

Capturing my heart

I've been watching 13 reasons why on Netflix. It's been an interesting journey of suicidal thoughts and the teenage angst in high school. I feel enlightened to a certain degree (bearing in mind it is for entertainment) I feel like the message Hannah passes on to Clay is very similar to the one Virginia Woolf wrote to her husband before she committed suicide. I can't help but feel there's so much tragic beauty to these notes, so much beautiful poetry. I've always said there's so much beauty to sadness.       But you need to be here if I’m going to tell           my story. If I’m going to explain why I did what I did. Because you aren’t every other guy — you’re different. You’re good. And kind. And decent. And I didn’t deserve to be with someone like you. I never would. I would’ve ruined you. It was me and everything that’s happened to me."

What im grateful for

I must say my post titled '23% complete' is one of my good posts, I don't know what's a bad post of mine (with no arrogance intended) maybe the posts where I'm not thinking enough or encouraging my readers to think more? Anyhow I've been at placement for about a week now and I can honestly say I've learnt a lot. I've learnt practical skills but that's not what I wanted to talk about. I wanted to talk about how grateful I am to be in a career where I can impact lives' daily, I sincerely hope I am helping others even in the smallest way. I am grateful to be able to listen to others who have not been heard by society for a long time, those who are deemed as 'old' or 'forgotten' , I feel privileged to listen and provide comfort. I am grateful that I can aid others in their difficulties and make them feel better, because everyone needs to feel better sometimes. I am grateful to be that someone who can make a difference when I had noon…
