Healing

12/8/18

First, I’ll address the glaringly obvious: two posts in one day? Don’t worry, you haven’t fallen through a wormhole to December 2015, this is happening.

*hold for laughter at my comedic genius*

The events leading up to this post are a bit odd, but they’ve made me think regardless.

A few weeks ago, I made the (horrible) decision to shave my legs despite already having razor burn from the previous time I’d shaved. So, as you can probably imagine, this made things immensely worse. And even though my legs have been itchy and red and uncomfortable, I’ve kept up with my shaving routine.

Bad idea I’m aware.

Last night, I was brushing my teeth when my mom came into the bathroom, sat on the edge of the tub, and began applying Vaseline to her feet. Now, it’s winter in the US and my poor mom is so sensitive to the cold, dry weather that her feet get dry and crack. She’s usually in quite a bit of pain this time of year.

I asked her how long she’d been having to do that, and she said, “A few days. I probably should have started doing it earlier.”

This got me thinking. Despite both of us knowing what to do to heal our bodies, neither of us did anything until we absolutely couldn’t take it.

For me, this sort of think happens a lot. Often, I’ll know the exact steps I have to take in order to feel better about something, but I just won’t until I don’t have another option.

Call it laziness, procrastination, or a side effect of depression, but it happens so much.

As of now, my room is a mess, I have homework to do, etc. and although it’s stressful, I have no will to make anything change.

Or at least I didn’t until about a half hour ago.

I was having my usual 45-minute shower concert/daydream/overthinking session and my mind drifted here. To this. I am capable of changing these things and making myself feel better. So what’s stopping me?

The answer is still unclear, and I think it’s different for everyone. But I’m going to change this. I paused to write this but as soon as I press “publish”, I’ll be on my way to cleaning my room, doing my homework, and planning/making my holiday gifts for friends and family.

I used to put such an effort into being productive and always doing something to better myself and life. I’m not really sure where that person went, but I’d like it if she came back and stayed a while for some much needed healing.

See ya soon!!!

Decisions and Dani’s birthday!

today I was so stressed it was unreal.

I ate like a fricking pig, I am on IT, I am bloated as all heck, and I had to ditch my grandparents for schoolwork. Honestly I want to cry. On the bright side my friend met twaimz and took a video of him saying “I love you Liss,” and then blowing a kiss.

It made my existence. No joke

But tomorrow I am motivated to do better. I’m getting on my moms elliptical (with her permission.. Good child 🙂 ) and I’m gonna not eat any junk food. 

So blogmas is coming after this soon and I have my schoolwork to do and a project to memorize.

BTW HAPPY BIRTHDAY DANI!!!!!

Blogmas day 3

Hey guys this blogmas is about surviving family. We all have that one annoying aunt! And the siblings whew forget about it.

1.Think before you speak to them.

Think before you say something. It might offend someone which could start fighting. Or someone could take a funny comment as rude and snap back at you. So don’t try to roast your grandma at the table.

2.Take time to enjoy them

As hard as this one is try to enjoy their presence. if your cousins live far away take this time to appreciate them being there. Don’t ask them, so where have you been. Too forward. Instead say, I haven’t seen you in so long! Where have you been!

3.Make sure you tell them how much they mean to you.

This one is a must. If you love your family do this. They always take you into account now it’s time to take them into account.

Hope this was helpful!

Turning Things Around

Hey guys welcome back. So today I stayed in my Pj’s but this time, it didn’t bother me as much. Mostly because I was actually being productive. But here are my goals of the day

  1. Finally finish cleaning my room.
  2. Exercise
  3. Read
  4. Do some practicing for dance

So far I haven’t accomplished my original goals,  but that is because I spent most of my day working on a project for my health class. I was pretty mad at most of the other group members because there is only one who put any effort into this and the final project is due Thursday.

I did my work but I was really mad because when we were deciding who would do what, two of the group members picked 5 point assignments, and me and the other got all the 10 point ones. It’s also so unfair because me and the other girl who got 10 pt. assignments, are the only ones who are making an effort to get a good grade. It was stressing me out so much and I am not happy with the other group members for not doing what they’re supposed to.

But, I was able to turn the situation around. While I was working, I was on FaceTime with Liss, and we  came up with an idea to celebrate Christmas. It’s a surprise but you won’t have to wait long. We are either announcing it tomorrow or Tuesday.

Other than that I don’t have a lot to tell you. I am excited to make this up-coming week a good one so I hope you stay tuned for that. Thank you for reading and I hope you had a good Sunday.

See ya soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How cool?

imagine you could create your own dinosaur.

Like how cool would that be.

It followed you everywhere it didn’t turn on you it ate everyone U didn’t like.

Like I would make them eat everyone..

Except a few people of course but a large population of them

I’m talking about real life like if they came back.

I would take a raptor any day only if Chris Pratt was the trainer though.

Just imagine.

I can imagine riding into the sunset on my raptor Chris Pratt next to me.

Anyways today I played the game pretty pretty princess with my baby brother and he won (on purpose)

I also stayed up doing homework last night so sorry for not blogging

Not my fault my teachers suck

And HAPPY THANKSGIVING GUYS!

I’m watching jurrasic world again

YAY GREAT DAY

Why you have to appreciate the little things

Today I thought why am I so annoying?

Why am I so weird?

And my last one was why am I so ungrateful?

I realized it’s so easy to change that And i snuggled my dog. I realized that one day Im gonna be the one watching him grow up, the one who will w there when he’s elderly, the one who’s gonna have to put him down. And I just sat in bed and I cuddled with him.

I’m gonna try to take things slower and enjoy life because it’s so important to take things slow before they’re gone. New Years resolution 🙂

Anyways it’s sturdy and tomorrow I have to finish homework ugh lets enjoy Saturday for being in the middle.

So done

im so tired I kid you not I woke up at 6:30 to do homework after staying up until 11:30 doing homework and honesty thank god it’s Friday. 

I also had to deal with this crap that this girl (M)was saying she hated this other girl (S)to me. So s asked me does m like her and m said she hates s. So I had to carry that message via text to S. She was freaking out because her only friends just admitted to hating her. So I comforted her and brought her out of her slump and she is moving on. I also agreed to be her friend because she’s actually nice and M is so rude. 

What a day tgif

I also got a final callback for the play.

Yay
