Bottled up feelings

Sometimes you bottle up your feelings, you don’t want to say anything, you’re scared to express yourself…maybe because of what the other person would say, or if they might hurt you or maybe you might hurt them, all because of fear you bottle up your feelings…you bottle it up, you bottle it up, you keep on bottling it up…until your body starts to show you signals that something isn’t right, your vibes start to give in that something isn’t right, your tone of voice start to change even when you talk…the truth is, you can’t bottle or hide your feelings forever, there’s a human need for you to express the truth and express yourself.

When you bottle up your feelings, you’re keeping yourself in, you’re not letting yourself go, it’s an unpleasant feeling . I’ve experienced it many times before and I hated it…when I come home and I notice myself sad or not feeling too well, I know it’s because there’s bottled up feelings inside of me that needs to be expressed. Those feelings daunt me until they are expressed…

I learned that you can’t hide from your own feelings, it will always find its way to show itself. If you have something to say, say it, if you feel like something isn’t right, it isn’t, if you really care about yourself, never bottle up your feelings again ❤ If you love yourself, don’t be afraid to express yourself.

 

With love,

Coming back.

I can’t believe it’s been this long I haven’t posted anything, this blog I started when I was in university was what got me out of depression and what helped me put my life back together. I still remember the first time I wrote and published my first post on this blog, almost 3 years ago…I was nervous, I was excited, and I was proud of what I had started and having a platform where I could express my inner mind and my inner feelings without anyone judging me was the best feeling ever. I guess somewhere down my working field and relationship road, I was so focused on trying to make people happy, trying to make things right for myself, trying to balance life, I forgot about myself and the little things that I always do that makes me happy.

I realized two important things in your life can take away the most time from you, and that is: work and love, but where are you in between? I noticed myself feeling so down one day and I didn’t know why, I started crying days after and I finally realized I just wasn’t happy. period. I was craving change, I wanted more time for myself and I needed it. This is where blogging came back and I never want to forget about it again, to me it was like me forgetting about myself, and having no where to express my inner feelings and emotions I want to share to the world…and why I started this blog.

I started this blog to express me, my ideas, my feelings, the messages I want to share to the world, and how dark, how deep, how cold this world can be sometimes, and how love can change everything. I didn’t want to be quiet anymore, I want to be heard and this is why I’m coming back.

24 lessons.

When I was younger, I couldn’t wait until my birthday….but as I got older, my birthday seemed to have come by faster than ever. I guess as you age (lol) the numbers start to add up, but at the end of the day I still feel like I’m 16 and my age never mattered to me…I still have big dreams I want to accomplish, I still have a big vision for myself, and I still want to better myself every single day.

I was listening to a motivational podcast the other day, and they said one thing that stood out to me, it was: “365 days from now, you wouldn’t want to be the same person as you are now… you would want to become a different person, a person who has changed, and a person who has grown.”  A year from today I would want to become a different person, much stronger, much more knowledgeable, and much more wiser than who I am now.  😊

I thought it was a good idea to come up with a list of 24 things I learned when I was 23, to reflect, change, and grow, so here it is! ❤  My 24 lessons:

 

  1. You are worth more than you know and capable of more than you think.
  2. Trust yourself.
  3. Never give up on your dreams.
  4. Work hard but be smart about it.
  5. Have a clear and precise vision (know what you want).
  6. Be patient  (in time all things will come).
  7. Don’t just think about it, take ACTION!
  8. Express your feelings, don’t bottle them up.
  9. Eat more vegetables, save the animals.
  10. Hold trust like a paper (you can’t trust everyone).
  11. Take care of yourself before you take care of anyone else.
  12. It’s okay to have a bad day, it makes you appreciate the good days 🙂
  13. Be grateful (Always).
  14. Keep on learning, never stop growing.
  15. Speak up.
  16. Love with all your heart.
  17. Never dwell in your fears (you’ll only sink deeper, be fear-LESS).
  18. Take calculated risks.
  19. Never compare yourself or look up to the media (you never know whats fake or whats real out there) You’re REAL, stay true to yourself. ❤
  20. You’re never too old to be silly.
  21. Keep a list of all things that make you happy, so when you feel down reach out for that list.
  22. Both coffee and tea is antioxidant rich.
  23. The past does not exist anymore, only in your mind, so stay in the present and never let a moment go.
  24. Time is the most valuable thing you could ever give to someone you love. ❤

 

Thank-you for reading 😊

Happy Holidays!!!

Having a Balance in Life

When I wake up, I feel good when I have a sense of purpose. A purpose for living, and a purpose to live.

The last few months had been quite busy for me, my orders had been piling up, and a lot of my time during the day, I would be making orders or focusing on my business. I wouldn’t necessarily say that was a bad thing, but then I started feeling sad for some reason. I was trying to figure out what had happened, and it was because I didn’t make time for myself and THAT was important.

I remember those days when I wake up in bed, and I would be super excited to make orders, I would be super excited to dance, I would be super excited to sing, I would be super exited to wake up and enjoy life. Somewhere down the road I forgot to have a balance of things, things I love to do, things I love to try, things I want to accomplish in life. In my head, I was just thinking about business, business, business. I didn’t have time to end up doing the things I love, and in return I was feeling sad. I was just focusing on my business, and ended up forgetting about myself. 

Making time for yourself is important because when you make time for yourself, you love yourself; you feel happy and you feel good. I love the sense of always waking up and singing to my favorite song, jumping out of my bed and listening to my favorite radio station, or reading one chapter (or a couple chapters) of the newly bought book I’ve been aching to read. Somewhere down the road, I forgot all those things and I lost a part of myself. I want everyone to know that this COULD be temporary if you are facing the same feelings as me. You could change and you could get right back up AND make time for yourself.

Making time for yourself is important because YOU are important. When you make time for yourself, you better yourself, and in return you better the world. It’s kinda interesting to realize this, because I figured out, I missed blogging and I jumped right into it because it was a part of me I always loved expressing, and if I don’t continue to do that I don’t feel good. Koodos to everyone who loves blogging!!!

A happy you makes a happy world 🙂 Get out there and enjoy yourself ❤

Stay Grateful ❤️

When you walk the sidewalks your walking on, go into buildings, use the elevator, or take the stairs…have you ever thought, it wouldn’t be made possible if it wasn’t for our construction workers.

We should be so thankful for all the things made easy for us. We live in a country where transportation, food, and shelter is easily accessible…we even have WIFI. 

When we open up our fridge there’s food, when we need something we can head to Walmart, when we want to search something up there’s Google.

…some people walk miles for water, miles for food, miles just to barely survive.

“The average distance that women and children walk for water in Africa and Asia is six kilometers (3.7 miles). ” -Water for the Ages (2009)

 
Sometimes we tend to want more, because we compare ourselves to how other people around us are doing, BUT look outside of us, where we are, and realize how abundant our country is, how abundant we are as a whole, we have more than what our eyes can see.

You have more than what most of the world don’t have.

 
Stay grateful ❤
