Fill your emptiness, with you

I don’t want to agree with this. I don’t think we should seek to find happiness in external factors. We should work on creating happiness within ourselves. Maybe we need to find ways to fill those empty spaces through finding love and joy for ourselves. Not through seeking another person; or place; or distraction. I … Continue reading

What It’s Like To Be Optimistic And Depressed At The Same Time

What It’s Like To Be Optimistic And Depressed At The Same Time

Originally posted on Thought Catalog:
dannyrozenblit Being a very happy, optimistic person with depression is a strange combination. When there is talk of someone struggling with depression, most people assume they’re miserable. They can’t laugh, they can’t smile, they can’t enjoy themselves, they don’t feel happiness. Depression can be enveloping, it can take over your…

The Wake Up Project

About a week or so ago a friend told me about these kindness cards, so, naturally I ordered some. They were delivered in the mail a couple of days ago, and I’m super excited to begin my journey of showing the world some more kindness with the intention of paying it forward (I’m generally fairly … Continue reading

A must *listen* video

This video has been circulating the internet since the ultra upsetting death of the legend that was Robin Williams. I have watched this video countless amount of times, and occasionally I watched it while closing my eyes and absorbing each and every word. I really encourage you to do the same because the words from … Continue reading

Are you too busy?

Do you want to know what each and every human being on this earth has in common with each other? The amount of hours per day. No one is ever “too busy”, we all just have different priorities. Do what makes you happy. We are the creators of our own destiny. We are the creations … Continue reading

Desiderata

Upon struggling with a decision I was trying to make, a dear friend told me to read this script again and to use it to help me make my decision and to stick with it once it’s made. I forgot how powerful and beautiful this piece of text is. If you want to see a … Continue reading

Mantra 9/6/2014

Upon watching the film ‘Into the Wild’ last night (for only the second time in my life), I am still moved and inspired by the movie/story/life of Chris McCandless. There are some aspects of what he did that I wish, or hope, one day that I can do. Although I would never go to the extent he … Continue reading

Mantra 28/4/2014

This week’s mantra comes from the quote above. Supposedly it is a quote by Shakespeare, but the internet is not much of a reliable source of information most of the time, especially when it comes to quotes and sayings by famous people – or importantly – dead, famous people. Anyhow, the point remains the same no … Continue reading

Laughter Is The Best Medicine

Yesterday afternoon, as I was on my way to uni, I started feeling this anxiety creep up on me. I’m not too sure where it came from or what it was about because nothing had happened to me or I wasn’t stressing about going into the city, or uni or whatever (which is slightly odd … Continue reading

Mantra 10/2/14

As I stated last week…I will be updating my mantras on here each Monday morning after I write them up on my board in my room. This week is: “I rejoice in the knowledge that I have the power of my own mind to create my own circumstances.” The human mind is an amazing tool … Continue reading

Find You, Save Me.

I am beginning to find myself again. In order to save myself, I need to get back on my feet and start living my life again. I have started reading a really interesting and thought-provoking book (courtesy of a friend for understanding where I am/was with life recently). This book is amazing. I have only … Continue reading

Love is worth the risk

“It is better to have loved and lost than never loved at all” That’s how the saying goes. But how true is that? Is love worth the risk? I questioned a friend of mine the other day about whether or not love is worth risking everything, risking your vulnerability, your heart, your head, your time. … Continue reading

My life is like a scratchie

I feel like my life is like a cheap $1 scratchie at the moment. Everyday is like I get a new scratchie. Sometimes I win $2 and I have a mildly happy day, sometimes I win up to $10 and have very happy and enthusiastic days. But the happiness never really lasts very long…much like … Continue reading

I Nearly Lost My Music

Last week I was on the verge of falling into a mood that is like a pit of emptiness. I was tiring of the music I was currently listening to and couldn’t think or find anything that I liked enough to listen to. I hate those moods where just no song or artist would pick … Continue reading

Life and Love

I’ve recently discovered “love” in an odd form of the word I guess because I’m not in a relationship, I’m not seeing anyone, I haven’t met anyone lately that I have literally fallen head over heels for…but I came into contact with an old friend that I hadn’t seen in a couple of years. We … Continue reading
