Breathe. You’re going to be okay. Breathe and remember that you’ve been in this place before. You’ve been this uncomfortable and anxious and scared, and you’ve survived. Breathe and know that you can survive this too. These feelings can’t break you. They’re painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually, they will pass. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon, they are going to fade and when they do, you’ll look back at this moment and laugh for having doubted your resilience. I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, again and again. This will pass. I promise it will pass.

10 Things That Need To Be Taught In Schools

1. How to use the law of attraction. Using the law of attraction allows us to be more focused on ourselves and less likely to complain about external circumstances as we know we create the reality we experience.

2. The temporary nature of everything. Getting comfortable with the idea that everything is temporary enables us to understand that we’re here to have fun and not take things too seriously because we know everything has an end - including us.

3. How food affects our bodies. We need to understand the role food plays in our lives, from the way it impacts our moods to it’s involvement in the development of diseases such as cancer and diabetes. Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.

4. Our spiritual nature. Knowing that we are infinite beings having a human experience & that we are not our bodies gives us a different perspective on life and allows us to transcend much of the irrelevant noise that takes us away fro experiencing our greatest joy.

5. Understanding our psychology. Being aware of the way our brains work and identifying when we’re living through the ego allows us to take responsibility for our lives instead of feeling powerless and as though life is happening to us.

6. How to make money. We all need money to survive in this world, instead of learning outdated information and being put through memory tests it would make a lot more sense for us to learn how to create incomes for ourselves rather than following a set of rules to be reliant on jobs that we may not enjoy.

7. How to create healthy & fulfilling relationships. Many of us learn this the hard way - through experience. Learning about relationships from a young age would allow us to experience deep love rather than enduring superficial relationships for ego gratification or due to lack of knowledge of self.

8. Why nature is so important. We are animals that come from nature, it’s absolutely imperative that we reconnect with ourselves in nature to get back in touch with what’s truly important - the relationship we have with ourselves and the universe.

9. How to meditate & why we need to. Meditation is a sacred time for us all to look within and observe the activity of our minds - this allows us to take a step back from following the movement of thought and gain perspective on our lives.

10. Mindfulness. The body is always present, but the mind rarely is - the ability to tune into our bodies to ground ourselves in the now is one of the most important things we can learn in this life because it allows us to experience true joy - which only exists in the present moment.

Education without knowledge of self is incomplete education.

Peace & positive vibes.

Be a teacher. Help others around you learn new things and develop their mindset. Knowledge is better to be spread, not kept to one self.

Act III Scene 4, Shangela’s Sugar Daddy Soliloquy

Let us be free from passage of our time,

Hold still, hold fast, the sweetest of my heart,

Collect thyself before even in part

A read thou wouldst in my here face thus chime.

The sweetest of my heart, know i do not

A man with gifts and bounty after lust,

All that i own, I own as it is just

And with labour and toil i have these got.

A great empire have I forged for myself,

And thy, without doubt, always know that must,

Built from the very ground, the very crust,

Still no man whom would jewel adorn each shelf.

No man to bathe my form in finest gold,

And this way it has been for time long passed,

A prince or wealthy man could I gain fast,

Should i desire his riches to behold.

One wonders, what aspect i must possess,

To heavy-pocket men so well attract,

Tis’ as i sicken! A plague i have well backed,

With sickening looks a plague i quickly press.

Thou art not the maiden who ever could,

The men of age and fortunes great soon bed,

As this woman thou never could be said

To be, nor be you ever even would.

Child, all on earth possessed by Shangela,

With sweat and blood with effort I have gained

A labourer and warrior ordained,

My work from Earth I am the handler.

you fucking

bitch

7 Excuses You Can Drop Today

Whether the goal is trying to lose weight, build a business, improve our mental health or anything in between - we can achieve anything we set our minds to, but first we have to get rid of our excuses.

1. I’ll do it tomorrow. Nothing in this life is promised, except death, tomorrow may never come and the task will remain incomplete. The only way to achieve our goals is to start taking action right now.

2. I’m not good enough. Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard, we can improve on the skills we already have by training and practicing. Remember - we all have to start from somewhere.

3. I’m tired. It’s important to listen to our bodies and make time to rest, but we must also keep in mind that our goals will never be achieved if we don’t sacrifice. We may have to give up an hour of sleep to fit in that workout or training session that will bring us closer to achieving our goals.

4. Other people are already doing it. Indeed, there are others who are expressing their gifts and talents to the world - but they’re not us. We each have a unique, individual perspective, gift or talent to offer the world that no one else can. 

5. I’ve already tried. To be successful in anything we need to fail and fail often, from each failure we learn a new lesson that we can use to improve our future attempts. It’s important to keep in mind that the only true failure is giving up.

6. What will others say about me? The opinions of others have nothing to do with us, the only opinion that matters is our own. We are the ones who have to live with the regrets of not trying, the validation of others isn’t worth giving up on our dreams.

7. What if it doesn’t work out? If it comes to the point where giving up feels like the only option - which it rarely ever is - at least we can say we tried. If we try we might fail, if we don’t we guarantee it. 

Excuses sound best to the ones making them.

Peace & positive vibes.

The brain seems so simple. It’s pink, rounded, and just sits there inside our heads. But yet, it’s so complex. Thoughts are produced almost instantaneously. Neurotransmitters are sweeping across from one end of the body to another. What would we do without this brain ours? How would we think? How would we be able to experience anything at all?

#SelfLoveSunday

5 Benefits Of Self-love You Can Experience Right Now

1. Self-respect - feeling worthy of love. Loving ourselves before seeking affection from others ensures that we seek out relationships with those that honour and respect us instead of settling for less than we’re truly worth.

2. Positivity - clearing out toxic energy. When we love ourselves we know that we are worthy of relationships with those that make us truly happy and do not waste our time with anything or anyone that doesn’t bring positive energy into our lives.

3. Mental health - seeing ourselves in a positive way. Loving ourselves allows us to see that we have beautifully unique features and quirks, this can remove much of the ill-feeling we can hold toward ourselves if we compare ourselves to others.

4. Self-acceptance - being happy in our bodies. Accepting ourselves for who we are and how we look removes much of the resistance that can be built up within us when we seek validation from the outside world.

5. Motivation - the drive to pursue our dreams. Having love for ourselves allows us to believe that we can have anything we desire which encourages us to chase down our dreams and live a way of life that serves and fulfils us.

Self-love is the cure to all suffering.

Peace & positive vibes.
