kind to self

Hey everyone! It’s been a little while

I just wanted to share with you the fact that I just made a new blog: @totakeke-lyrics! It’s pretty much a blog whose primary aim will be to compile transcripted gibberish lyrics for all 91 K.K. Slider songs!

If you’re an animal crossing fan, I’d really appreciate if you could check it out, and sing along to some songs with K.K. ❤️❤️ so far i only have 3 songs up but all the others are on the way! thank you C:

btw, it’s likely i’ll be semi-active on this blog again during the summer holidays! anyways you have a great day!

 2015 vs 2017.

Did another self portrait and I guess a kind of draw this again. Neither of them completely looks like me, and both of them look like completely different people. Go me! I never really liked the 2015 version… Don’t know how I feel about the 2017 one.

Also apparently I had a haircut. I can’t tell if my skill has regressed. LMAO.

read interesting books. listen to beautiful lyrics and melodies. write your own stories. go to concerts, parks and museums. study hard. take care of yourself. stay hydrated. learn to appreciate the little things. travel. learn a language. remind your friends that you’re there for them. be kind, and feel.

Even the smallest spark of positivity can spread like wild fire to everyone else you come across. It’s amazing what impact even the smallest acts of kindness can have on the quality of someone else’s day.

Don’t focus on getting even, ever. Do what you know is right; show kindness, smile, help others; for everything else, allow karma to take care of it.

Be the messenger of positivity, the bringer of kindness, and the bearer of humility. In other words, be the best person that you can possibly be, each and every day.

Hey.

Just listen to me for a sec.

Breathe. Breathe deeply.

Stretch for a minute, straighten your back, have a drink and maybe a snack if you need it. Wash your face if you want to and freshen up, maybe rest once you’ve finished reading this.

Whatever you’re doing will still be there when you get back.

You’ve been working hard and doing a good job and I’m proud of you. You deserve a break for a second.

Just trust me on this, okay?

You’ve survived everything that’s happened to you up until this point.

That’s a lot of things, isn’t it?

You’ve gone through all that, and it doesn’t matter if you fought through it or cried through it or nearly didn’t make it.

It doesn’t matter because you’re here now.

You’re real, you’re here, and you’re okay.

And if you’re not okay right now, I promise you will be again sooner or later.

Because I believe in you.

I love you.

I’m so proud of you for being here today.

I’m so proud of you for existing here right now.

It’s a scary, painful, difficult world. I know. And sometimes it gets hard to exist and want to exist. I know.

Let out the emotions you’re bottling up. Let yourself breathe. Let yourself feel. Let yourself rest. Let yourself be you.

Just always keep existing. ‘Cause I’d miss you if you ever stopped, and there’s so much left in the world that you haven’t seen yet.

And always remember to breathe.

Take yourself and completely rise to the next level. Be kinder. Take on new challenges. Read new books. Gain more knowledge. Make a positive difference in someone’s life. It’s astounding, really, how many opportunities are open for improvement in one’s lifetime. Choose which ones you want to act on, and completely welcome them with open arms.
