be careful with yourself

Quick fact. Ready?
Ultra violet rays from the sun provide our bodies with the precursor for Vitamin D. However, this compound that reaches out skin is not yet in active form, and must first go through partial conversations in the liver and kidneys in order to reach its final state.

Daddy, I'm scared. My oldest brother just started following me on Tumblr. He's homophobic and I'm "gay". (I'm actually bi but that's not the point) I don't know what to do. And big problem is I don't feel comfortable being on Tumblr with my brother following me. Please help me.

BLOCK his ass, oh my gosh. I understand, that must be really scary and I totally wouldn’t be comfortable at all. If you really don’t feel happy being in this space anymore, consider making a sideblog or a new blog altogether? I know it might be a pain in the ass but it’ll be worth some peace of mind. xx <3

People often ask ‘how is life treating you?’ Perhaps the more accurate question is ‘how are you treating yourself?’

can we start practicing self love that doesn’t focus so much on looks? like sure feeling beautiful is nice but you know what? you got a kickass personality too! you know that little quirk that you’re sure is annoying? it’s endearing as hell and when you laugh you literally embody sunshine like you don’t have to constantly tell yourself you’re pretty if you can’t believe it because in the end that’s not the most special thing about you. learning to love your insides is just as hard as the outside. vanity isn’t the be all and end all of self love you can be a lil ugly and still love yourself

There is a distinct difference between caring for someone and carrying someone.

Know the difference.

You are allowed to let people down when they are too heavy.

You are not a bad person because you have limits.

When your mind begins to fall off track, handle it delicately. Be careful when it begins to think irrational thoughts, for it is then when we become the most vulnerable to our greatest fears.

Dean was yelling at Mary, telling her about how he hates her. And he keeps using examples including his brother’s struggles.
Sam lost the girl he loved.
Sam was tortured in hell.
Sam was possessed by Lucifer.
Sam lost his soul.
And then I realized. Dean was abused and traumatized and broken down so many times. He knows that what he went through is fucked up. He might not recognize the severity, but he’s not stupid. He knows his life was never fair to him.
But he’s still more angry about Sam’s trauma than his own. He still thinks Sam is more important. To his mother. To the world.
That makes me really sad.

Give yourself flowers. Take yourself out for lunch. Enjoy your own company. A date is a date, regardless of who it’s with.

Good habits to work on

Here are some habits I think we should all have in mind:

  • Drink enough water.
  • Drink more tea, and less coffee.
  • Walk as much as you can every day.
  • Do yoga or some kind of flexibility workout.
  • Go outside as much as you can. 
  • Study in a park if you can.
  • Take your dog for a walk if you have one.
  • Have plants.
  • Eat more fruits and veggies (4 or 5 servings of each, each day, would be best).
  • Reduce or eliminate dairy products.
  • Eat breakfast, always, period.
  • Take algae-based vitamin D supplements if you don’t get at least 15 mins of exposure to sun every day.
  • Sleep around 8 hours every day.
  • Go to sleep and wake up at similar times every day.
  • Drink a glass of water after waking up.
  • Try meditation before even starting your day.
  • Work on your awareness at any time. Pause, breathe, and concentrate on your surroundings. 
  • Don’t blame yourself for the bad things that happen to you.
  • Believe in yourself.
  • Watch inspirational videos to get you on the right mood to work.
  • Studying is important, but your health is even more. No all-nighters.
  • Keep your room/appartment clean, for a clear mind.
  • So tidy up also!!
  • Use music to cheer you up if needed.
  • Listen to a good podcast while doing boring chores like laundry or dishes.
  • Be nice to the people around you. You know that someone saying something they shouldn’t, doesn’t mean they mean it.
  • Try volunteering for a good cause.
  • Don’t stress too much, you’ll figure it out.
