Instructions for a Bad Day - Shane Koyczan

If you think for one second
that no one knows what you’re going through
be accepting of the fact
that you are wrong.

That the long drawn and heavy breaths of despair
have at times been felt by everyone
that pain is part of the human condition
and that alone makes you legion.

A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?”

Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.

She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.”

Starting Over: Tips for Rebuilding Your Life

Just as a phoenix burns into nothingness & rises from the ashes, you too can start over on a clean state whenever you desire.  To aid you on your journey to becoming what you’ve always wanted to be, we’ve collected some of the best tips for rebuilding your life the way that you want.

1. Declutter!

You simply cannot move forward while carrying heavy baggage from the past.  To declutter your life, sort through your things and toss anything that weighs you down.  Some examples include: old clothing, useless papers, & anything that you haven’t used in over 2 years.

2. Forgive Yourself & Others

Grudges will only bring you down and keep you stuck in a rut of negativity.  Release any old hurts and forgive yourself for any major mistakes you have made in the past.  Everyday is a new day to start over, and mistakes only make you wiser.

3. Shake Up Your Routine

If you keep doing things the way you’ve always done them, you will continue to get the same results.  Take a risk and do something different or try something that you’ve never done before.  Who knows?  The results might happily surprise you.

4. Get a Makeover

Showcase the new you with fresh clothes & makeup to get you excited for the beginning of this chapter.  Pick out images of people you admire to get little tidbits for creating a look that makes you feel & look your best & reflects the new image you want to portray.

5. Rest Up

Nothing beats the feeling of waking up fresh after a long nap or good night’s sleep.  When you are well rested you feel as if you can take on anything, so this is the best way to kickstart the new you.  Relax & you will be ready for whatever you have planned in your bright future.

Not up to the Expectations, I visited it along with my wife on 16th March 2015:  

Positives:

  • Décor
  • Cleanliness
  • View from the Window of the Room
  • The breakfast was good enough
  • Staff was nice
  • Free Parking was possible near the hotel
  • Sabiha Gökçen International Airport is near

Negatives:

  • The Hotel Starts from 1st Floor and there is no lift so if you have heavy baggage then its not easy.
  • I booked for a double-bed bedroom, the receptionist showed me a room on 3rd floor and to my surprise there was no lift inside the hotel as well. I was in no position to carry heavy bags to 4th floor via stairs.
  • I requested him to show me a room on ground floor, there was a room available but it had 2 single beds, having no other options i opted for that.
  • Soon I realized the noise from the road, the hotel is located at a big highway which is busy 24/7 and my room’s window was towards that road. I had come from Bursa and next day I had to fly to Riyadh so I was looking for a peaceful sleep but it was not possible. I had to put tissue papers in my ears which helped a little but still the night was not comfortable.

Tips for Travellers:

  • If you are traveling light then you should opt for a room on top floor not towards the road side, hopefully it won’t be that noisy.

Bi-polar: the upside

A month passes. And then two. Then three. When she’s manic she doesn’t bat an eye-lid or keep count. Instead, she keeps occupied. With work. With sleep. With watching a movie, downloading two others, and reading a book all at once. Multitasking becomes her new best friend, because while embroiled in the challenge of trying to balance too many things at one time, she can ensure her mind doesn’t wander. And in wandering, stumble down the pitfalls and thorny traces of her previous lives.
Because every mundane chore, action and object, comes with a heavy baggage of memory. Her world is a myriad of signs which threaten to drown her. And in order to keep her head above water she ups the steaks. One more task. Just one more. Until eventually, she becomes a whiz with juggling a million things at one time, but her attention span has reduced to that of a three year-old’s who was fed a steady diet of kids TV since its conception. And under tables, her leg shakes, urgently.

h02; the hulk and natasha romanoff.

BANNER IS HEAVY WITH EMOTIONAL BAGGAGE that spans years, places, and people. it’s burned a PLETHORA of customs into him that affect his present-day interactions, TETHERING the way he channels and expresses the hulk, though his interactions with natasha romanoff take it much further. his footsteps around her are feather-light; there are no subtleties in communication to even suggest he carries a beast in his bones; EVEN THE HULK HIMSELF, usually pompous and petulant, is subdued in noise and presence. he’s TAME. the doctor isn’t inclined to frighten natasha, after all ( because he looks at her and sees broken metal; feet tracking away; taught breath from tiny lungs that echos in the belly of a helicarrier ) , && since the hulk is the truest representation of himself and his sentiments, this holds fast. in fact, while it may be difficult to believe, the hulk is often MORE cautious with natasha than banner is.

the hulk’s behaviour is also more MALLEABLE when he’s around natasha. to avoid frightening her, each move is calculated according to what SHE wants, and there’s no opposition to obeying her orders. interestingly, natasha also holds sway over his transformations and can easily persuade him to both turn and revert with as little as a touch. this applies even with his altered state, as his need to be amicable is rudimentary, running deeper than rational thought. OF COURSE, nothing can nix his knee-jerk mannerisms like growling and snarling ( which never fails to unnerve people ) , though he tries his BEST to limit them in her presence.

You the best senpai! The greatest senpai! Nobody could match youuuu! You're always there to listen to me. Whether its heavy or light baggage I rant or advice I seek. My senpai is there for me! Thank you!! *hugs from a couple hundred miles away* •∆•

Hahaha awww thanks. I love how even after we had the conversation about you calling me a feudal lord, you still call me senpai. Either way, I’m just happy to help! :D

Restless. 

Feeling like there is something I am not understanding, not grasping. But it’s there, unsettling. Its like it is hidden behind a mosaic glass. it teases me with its silhouette but i cannot make it out. 

I am learning how much the fear of missing out has gotten me to where I am now. So much discontent. It divides me from everyone I hold dear.  The grass is not always greener, always reaching for the stars maybe blinds you from the fact there are still beauty beneath your feet. 

I have become sour, unmotivated and locked in the past. Locked in sadness, of past hurts. 

Always leaving heavy baggage behind is not always healthy, It feels safe but it does not mean your arms do not remember the weight of your pain. 

I feel like I am still in this rut. A rut with no solution. I busy myself with things I do not want to do. Busy myself with things that appear to make me happy but they do not. 

Breathe in, breathe out. Heavy chest.

I feel the weight of my mind, growing realisation of what makes me unloveable and closed off 

It is what I see in others close to me and i do not want that for myself. I want peace and love. Rumi says Do not seek love but seek all the barriers within yourself that separates you from it. I guess that is what I need to do now. 

I need to connect with people who have loved me for who I am and continue to. Disconnect from negativity. 

Try to move forward. 

Dearest self, I love you. I just do not know how to show you.
