Don’t look to others for a sense of self-worth, but to ourselves. Comparing yourself to others is the best way to tear yourself down, and can be detrimental to your mental health. Look instead at the unique traits that make us all different from one another, and remember to value yourself as much as you value others. Learn to notice your own suffering, acknowledge it. Don’t let life pass you by; act in a way that adds value to your life as well as building upon your sense of self-worth. When you can learn to value and love yourself as you do others, you can live a more fulfilled life.
“We shouldn’t be rating ourselves, we should just be ourselves.”
– Dr. Firestone
“Obstacles are an integral part of life: without them, our feet would remain firmly in place, neither rising nor falling, life slowing to a halt.”
Working through the day can be a stressful endeavor when there are tasks that need to be completed. One thing to do when going about your day is to take a spare moment to visualize your daily goals, and prioritize which tasks require your immediate attention.
This way, you calmly think about each task and complete them more quickly and efficiently: rushing though is never the best way to get things done right.
”Life is a river, ever flowing in a single direction.”
I would like to take the time to apologize to those who may or may not have been looking forward to the next post, and for my long absence. It’s been about a third of a year since I’ve posted, but I’ve been a bit busy trying to get my motivation back. It’s as good as it’s going to be at the moment, so I can’t really complain.
I’m ready to get back into the game, and start posting again.
We have all had a time in our lives where we truly felt low, where we truly felt like it couldn’t get much worse. Some days are harder than others. One thing to do is to try to look at the good things in life that keep us going, that allow us to stay on our feet. Find what drives you to move forward, and keep on going.
With a great, burning passion
I fly high into the sky
Far above the clouds
Heading towards the stars
Following the wind without question
Knowing up here I’m safe
And am blessed with new freedom
A new sense of joy
From thrills felt by few
What else could feel this great
To be among the birds above
In a majestic paradise unmatched
A grand, blue, natural beauty
One can’t help but feel it so
When they fly so high in the sky
This was the first real poem I’ve written, so it won’t be of the same quality as later poems.
A good thing to do when youre stressed is to take a deep breath and relax. Keeping a clear head, even in high stress situations, makes you less likely to make irrational decisions. Don’t fall to the pressure, but rise to the occasion.
What comes to mind
When you hear that word:
Is it life everlasting?
Or maybe more
Is it our love?
And longing for each other
When I think of this word
I think naive
Yet maybe it isn’t so
Our daily lives aren’t
It is so much better
To get used to the fact
That our lives aren’t
It would truly be
The most horrific of curses
A curse that, I
Would never want for
Even the most hated of foes
However, maybe our memory
Is the door to this
This wonderful, but frightening
