Day 23

Who or what keeps you calm?

  • In a perfect world, it would have been meditation but since I haven’t done that in awhile — oops! It would have to be my self control, knowing how to shut off and focus on breathing and allowing myself to relax — not always easy, but it helps when I have music as well and I can tune out certain thoughts or just listen to a song and really get involved with the lyrics. 
What keeps all of you calm, or who?

Day 9


What cheers you up when you are down?

  • Listening to music
  • long drives 
  • affection (sometimes) just to know someone else cares
  • being left in my room with my thoughts in darkness and silence – something about just getting lost & filling my mind with positive thoughts is the goal 

Is there something you can think of that cheers you up? list them.

DAY ONE

What makes you feel at peace?

  • Coming home from a good day, laying in bed with music on and daydreaming. Taking a walk through nature, enjoying the scenery during warm and nice weather & being able to relax with little to no worry about what is going on around me — and falling asleep with ease. 
What makes all of you feel at peace?

Are you Able to Forgive yourself?

  • I have a hard time forgiving myself; I am hard on myself an the bad decisions and mistakes I have committed, I feel as though they are always in the back of my mind somewhere. I know I have grown, matured and learned many lessons since than but it doesn’t change the fact that at one point I did something that now haunts me or causes me grief if I were to think about it. People have skeletons in their closet and I am not in denial about mine, but I feel as though some skeletons are harder to forgive than others. Most things I have chosen to forgive myself for to keep tension out of my life, but there are a few things in which I have yet to.

Are you able to forgive others?

  • Yes, I am able to forgive others. but a lot of times I choose not to for a long period of time if at all because I sometimes feel as though some people don’t deserve my forgiveness.

How would you change the world?

  1. I’d make it a place where people could feel safe being who they are without feeling as though there will be consequences or judgement rendered (i.e prevent bullying, body shaming, make places more LGBTQ friendly and open minded, etc)
  2. I’d make treatment for diseases and health conditions more affordable so that everyone could afford treatment without worrying about debt, or losing everything they have (cancers, STDS/HIV, bone & heart conditions, etc) 
  3. I’d have wages match the cost of living everywhere so that people could better afford their living circumstances & it could cut down on homelessness and hunger
  4. I’d spread the importance of exercise and have health providers give fitness counceling to patients (cardiovascular test, muscular test, etc) cutting down on the deaths of inactivity and spreading awareness. 
  5. I’d make better suited laws against rape, molestation, sexual assault, domestic violence, so that families could get the justice they deserved and the victim could feel safe after their attack. 
  6. Pedophiles would not be released , they would be held accountable for the rest of their lives for the crime(s) they commit. 
  7. I’d make college education more affordable by either allowing one year free of tuition (undergrad students) or lessen the cost of education so that more people could afford to get their college education without sinking into debt by the time they graduate or worse, having to drop out because they can no longer afford their education. 
  8. I’d have schools better guarded so that when mass shootings erupt, the students can feel more at ease, and have a better plan of action for each school in case something like this does happen for all grades. 
  9. I’d pay actors and professional athletes less money (instead of millions) maybe I would make sure they still got paid for their talents but not paid to the point where they make more money than some other important professions, I think 6 digits would be comfortable and still be fair vs having some of these athletes & actors being paid millions per contract or commercial, etc. I want the pay structure to still compliment their talents and effort but not exceed a certain amount of money to keep things reasonable. 

These are just some of which I would change, I have a whole listful of things I would want to change that would hopefully be for the better and help many people. As for you, what would you want to change about the world?

Do you worry too much? How can you deal with this?

In the previous post I mentioned how I worry quite a bit about different things and it stems from anxiety & brings about anxiety or a sense of feeling overwhelmed. I do believe I worry too much, and I don’t particular enjoy it. As of now, I have been taking part in meditation, but also, reading a good books has helped & music helps to get my thoughts out/ at the same time doesn’t quiet my brain when I am worried (so its a positive and negative) but for sure meditation & reading a book has been helpful, allows me to escape for a while and focus on being more at peace and calmness. I also believe my fear of losing routine or not finishing everything I planned for the day causes to me worry because then I have to think about when I can play catch up, so I don’t get too far behind. It’s a cycle, I am trying to teach myself that it is okay to go off the beaten path sometimes, and that we can only do what we can do, and not worry about what doesn’t get finished, because it will at some point. 

What helps you deal with being worried too much? or is this not an issue for you. Feel free to share in the comments, & make sure to follow, share and like!
