I stayed home all day today doing homework. Yes, on the 1st day of fall and a beautiful saturday 🤦🏻♀️ One has to do what it has to do when you have so many goals to achieve. Reading and writing papers for school. Still seating here finalizing one of the papers but feel such peace when I look at this view.
Forever grateful for where I am today. At peace and in tranquility, that's the best thing anyone could ever ask for.
Love yourself first. This advice is given often, but what does this really mean? What does loving yourself look like? What does it feel like? Where do you start? Loving yourself is great advice but not many are taught how to achieve this. There are so many approaches, but let’s start with 3 simple steps: 1) self-talk, 2) self-care, 3) self-support.
1) Self-talk: Shift your mindset to loving and accepting yourself, flaws and all. Cease any self-talk that involves put downs, criticisms and doubts. These thoughts have no place in the ‘love-yourself’ equation. Introduce positive affirmations and caring self-talk daily.
2) Self-care: Feeling a sense of deep care for oneself and looking after yourself accordingly. It’s easy to neglect healthy daily routines, physical needs, and emotional health. We can let small routines go and justify that we don’t need it. But loving yourself requires putting in the effort towards good habits, just for your own benefit, no matter who’s watching.
2) Self-support: Life will still find a way to hurt you, and when that happens be sure to nurture yourself through the pain just as you would for a child. Acknowledge that you were hurt and offer yourself care and support in response. Avoid overlooking your pain or waiting for others to rescue you. Nurture and support yourself accordingly.
Happy Sunday my friends! 🤗 How lucky are we to see another day, to have a roof over our heads, to have fresh air to breathe, to have clean water to drink, to have an abundance of food to eat, and to have the opportunity to do the things that make our hearts sing. Taking time to reflect on life and practice gratitude is important as it makes us realise just how lucky we are to be alive, it improves our mood and helps alter our perspective. Even in the darkest of times there is always something to be grateful for if you are willing to reflect and look at the bigger picture. How can you practice gratitude? Take 5-10 minutes out of each day and reflect on three things you are grateful for. You can internalise this, share it with someone, or you can write it down and keep a journal to look back on it if that’s more your thing. 😊
Enjoy your day! ❤️🤗
Maybe things didn't break you because you are stronger than them. And I think that you can even survive anything. Because now... you want to. You don't want to quit. #thisischronicillness •
I often sit within my #thoughts , trying to figure out how they’re affecting my being.
In this moment right now, I’m encapsulated by #feelings of #loneliness . While I often enjoy the moments in #life when I’m #alone , loneliness on the other hand does not sit so well with #me .
It’s such a weird feeling, a feeling of being so singular and removed from everything and everyone.
These are not the feelings that I want to cultivate within myself. So, I choose in this moment to breathe out this discomfort into the #universe and wait patiently in hopes of reciprocity.
💬📝 “Dentro le noie suggestive dovremmo applicare della sana perseveranza. Ti cercherai per doverti poi pensare, per non doverti biasimare. Sarai L incudine delle tue stesse ossessioni, il rammarico profondo di ogni piccola incertezza. L inquietudine persuasa e quei pochi sorrisi avranno in se L affanno maturato; di te stesso ed altra gente che non ha saputo bastarsi. Dovremmo osservare ogni notte e saperla ascoltare, perché non siamo fatti per dividerci con gli altri. Non siamo il grigiore cupo di fievoli istanti, e forse mai lo saremo. Per ciò che sentì e ciò che avrai, lascia andare ogni spazio davanti a te. Come fosse il niente , come fossi il tuo tutto.”
nothing and no one is truly boring, it's simply a manner of learning to let others see the things that usually noted as ordinary when really are quite exceptional. anything can be looked at in a new perspective
