Achieving Peace

Achieving Peace

Ask for help when you need it: For too long, I tried to take on all of the challenges that life threw at me alone. This became a serious problem as my emotional, mental, and spiritual strength slowly deteriorated over time. After looking back on my actions, there are a few reasons why I was obsessed with keeping everything to myself. Hopefully you can relate to some of these reasons. First, I didn’t want to be a burden on anyone….

Back to the Basics

Back to the Basics

Fresh out the kitchen: Recently, I’ve been posting a lot less frequently than I would like to. This is largely due to me having less time on my hands. Juggling work, family, and friends is hard enough as it is, but life continues to get more complex. I’m determined to not let the craziness of life get the best of me. I’ve had a lot more time to think and reflect about everything. My depression is largely influenced by the…

Lets Get Real

Lets Get Real

Attention: no previous planning or intense read-through has occurred for the following post. Lets just talk, get real and raw. I tend to plan my posts in advanced, or read-through them a million times before I finally decide to publish – which is not wrong, and perfectly fine – but lets switch things up a bit. I’m going to sit here, type up my thoughts, and send them off into the public eye immediately; because I view you readers as…

Breathe Every Once and Awhile

Breathe Every Once and Awhile

I am currently suffering from the deathly cold that we all get at least once a year; and I can honestly say I feel miserable. My head feels like a cross between a bowling ball and a ticking time bomb, along with aches throughout my entire body; a painful scratchy throat and a stuffy nose. Last night, amidst my sleepy eyes and raging pain throughout my body, I couldn’t seem to fall asleep. I started praying to God, asking why…

Prepare for the Journey Ahead

Prepare for the Journey Ahead

Reflection: As I sit outside and feel the sun wash upon my face, I can’t help but smile. The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, and the sun is shining. Its days like these that make me feel as if there is nothing bad in this world. I wish this was true. Bad thoughts have a funny way of intruding upon the mind. They mostly come when we least expect it. This causes me to push myself to enjoy…

The Return

The Return

One Post to Rule Them All: I’ve been engulfed by a busy set of transitions these past couple of days and I haven’t had time to write much. The past week has been filled with a variety of changes; finishing my junior year, saying goodbye to friends who are graduating, and starting a new job. I have found myself bombarded with a ton of change all at once, and I, like most people, am hesitant to life changing. Needless to…

Change Up Your Routine

Change Up Your Routine

The Journey Ahead I’ve recently discovered a life-changing piece of advice: change up your routine. It has done wonders for my life and I know that it will impact yours as well. Changing routine is necessary and extremely important for people who struggle with depression and anxiety. This is because negative emotions will continue to pile up until they are too much to bear. The emotions then create a routine centered on them. The routine created is what turns our…

Blessings List

Blessings List

Challenge: Make a list of everything you are thankful for and look over it on a daily basis. Read the list every time you wake up and right before you go to sleep. Some areas to think about include family, friends, health, integrity, children, residence, country, faith, occupation, etc. It is easy to forget how much we are blessed with. Are you thankful for what you have?

Lows and Highs

Lows and Highs

Become familiar with how you react to different situations. When you understand how to counteract your “lows”, you will be able to truly experience your “highs”.

The Snowball Effect

The Snowball Effect

Imagine: Think of every day as winter. You walk outside and the ground is perfectly covered in a white blanket of snow. The birds are somehow still chirping. Your neighbor, Mrs. Jenson, calls over to you concerning her…ok, I’m getting too into this. Back to the point. (The snow is the most important part of this analogy so for those of you who are opposed to the cold, think of your favorite vacation spot…but with tons of snow everywhere) The…
