A Simple Thought For The Day

In Opinion/Personal, Random on April 4, 2013 at 1:07 pm


I’ve posted on eating/body image issues before. Stress always messes with my appetite and my own image issues, and I recently had a close friend confide their own similar issues with me that they have been struggling with for quite a while.

I have an app on my phone called IFunny, which is mostly ridiculous pictures and rage comics, but today this is what popped up. Sometimes I feel that the universe works in ways to provide little bits of inspiration and encouragement in the least expected ways. I feel I was meant to come across this picture that some random stranger created at precisely this time, and that is a very comforting belief for me. I hope everyone pays attention to the little things that can connect with them, the tiny, almost irrelevant things that could be easily overlooked. That’s where hope and strength come from…

A Stressful Catharsis

In Personal, Random on October 22, 2012 at 11:11 am

I know so far I’ve just been posting my random thoughts and opinions, which is great. It’s cathartic for me to write out my thoughts and what not, but physically writing in a journal felt too much like homework to me so I never could get to a point where I enjoyed that. I never felt that release from it that I was expecting. Typing it and posting it online, however, gives me that feeling of having it out. Out of my head, out of the shadows, out in the open.
Reading other people’s blogs also makes me feel better. I find people I relate to, I find inspirational stories and stories that make me want to do better in my own life, and I think…if only. If only I could be that for someone else. If only I could inspire or relate or…anything. That would just be tops for me. I recall a quote from Emily Dickenson:

“If I can stop one heart from
breaking, I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain, Or help one
fainting robin; Into his nest
again, I shall not live in vain.” Read the rest of this entry »
