How You Should be Viewing Life

Taking shots like this really opens my perspective on life and how small some things aren’t worthy to fuss over.

Old friendships, small weight gain or loss, useless politicians. You know where i’m going with this. Those little things that may annoy you drastically from day to day. The toxic lust that poisons our minds. How it changes what we do and how we do it.

These things aren’t worthy to fuss over. Let them go! I saw a tweet yesterday along the lines of:

If often baffles me when I see things like this. But then I remember to myself, I use to think like this, too.

Things that aren’t worth fighting over, eventually needs to be let go. Stop wasting precious life time and start being more proactive with it. Go for a run, even if you hate running. Get back into that thing you once loved doing like painting or drawing. Listen to music in your bathtub and get high off of essential oils. (Diffuse those thoughts, boo). There’s no point in putting a ton of energy into someone or something if you feel that you deserve reciprocation, and aren’t getting it. No more guilt trips, just – let it go.

More time for you and less time for others who don’t deserve your precious time. It’s a simple and very giving formula. We have to learn how to love and appreciate ourselves before we can even think about offering help to others. This is something that does take lots of time to grasp if you’re the kind of person to often help others before yourself, like I once use to do religiously.

For stress relief, I recommend doing a hobby you enjoy the most such as art or writing, along with a diffuser and some essential diffuser oils that you can find here for a great price.

I think it’s beautifully ironic how quintessential something can be for people who haven’t seen the internal dilemmas. My picture of this beach for a great example. Many people would see this and say to themselves, “OMG PARADISE TAKE ME THERE, it literally looks perfect!” Yeah, it does look perfect. Looks can often be deceiving, babes (think catfish).

We often forget that places, people and things all have one thing in common. They have problems. Some bigger than others, some smaller, but they all have exactly that in common – problems. I.e. as stated previously, old friendships, places and useless politicians.

The grass is always greener on the other side they say, but the funny thing is; the grass will always be greener on the other side, where you are and however you look at it. Take pride in what you have, cherish it while you have it, and never forget what you can lose. Make your grass green. Or in an islanders case, your ocean blue.MakeYourGrassGreen

A New Year with New Surprises.

I would have never suspected for this year to be so – big.

It feels as if everyone’s true colours are beginning to shine nice and bright this year. Everyday it seems I lose a friend, and slowly over weeks or months I gain even better ones, and even though it’s a shame that I’ve lost that connection with the people I have known for years, nothings seems better than some fresh air.

My horoscope incites that I should worry about myself this year, and focus on building my own character before jumping into other people’s lives. Although it’s funny, because all I’ve ever done my whole life was to be there for others in their time of need, to comfort, to love and support, and ironically enough, it’s really nipped me in the ass. The last few months have been a real game changer for me, and so much has changed in the last year that it’s almost hard to believe. I’ve realized how fake people can really be, even those who you consider your ‘best friend.’

Despite my health problems with my thyroid that I’ve been battling against during the last 8 months, i’m finally flying out to Boston on February 10th to have surgery! Big news I know. I’ve been waiting so long to get things going, and although my biopsy results have come back as inconclusive but suspicious, I am happy to finally get it dealt with by a real professional. The whole idea of surgery does indeed scare the living daylights out of me, but the experience will be worthwhile and I can finally get this bastard out of me.

I’ve started up P90X again, and did some plyometrics today, God did my legs feel weak as hell after, I even collapsed going down the stairs afterwards. I do feel a lot more rejuvenated after that workout though, which is what i’m going to be keeping up in the next few weeks before surgery.

So overall my advice for everyone is to worry about yourself right now, focus on what you can do to make your own self, better. Ignore those who give up on you and always push forward positively, remove the negatives. Hater’s gonna hate, and hell yeah they’re gonna talk behind your back, but hey; that’s where they belong.

Oh, and don’t even think about loving someone else if you cannot love yourself, period.
