My Story My Version: The Ride, the Drive, and in Park.

Oh the ride through life. . . And my fortune cookie (3/16/2023) reads:

🦋🍀💞💖 (This should always be your mindset- overcome the battle win in life, being your best inspiration to others). In the positive way, overcome negative energy, with a smile, walk away and come back, in your positive resolve to win). Positive feels amazing). .🍀💞💖🦋

This is true to my character. As in My Story My Version: The Ride, the Drive, and in Park, this is my viewpoint to the world (Life) we use as our roadmap, (gps if you will.)..

The Ride

The Ride, sit in the passenger seat and as you ride through life, taking in the scenery. We are collecting all the information along the way. It’s peaceful and educational, it’s the beating and the praise that life offers us. For learning, experience, and the knowledge that makes us fail or successful. Sometimes the ride isn’t enough, so we must push for a driver to teach, guide and help us gain insight. It’s a privilege to ride, it’s a honor to ride, but our driver must influence life skills to help us not hurt us. Meaning reach good intentions and steer us from bad habits/tendencies. (You get it!) We gathering tools to make good life decisions, we explore and experience the pain, tears, and bruttle truth. We share love, joy, happiness, and compassion. The experience that guides us in life, emotional, mental, and physical awareness tools. Without these experiences we are limited to our personal growth. Development to be your best self is incomplete. Our developmental growth should never stop unless medically determined. Knowledge is a continual need to live. Just as we need water to live, something’s we can not live without.. I know everyday I’m searching for knowledge (our personal storage of wisdom) 😁 to breath and live life. The Ride is our blessing to be understanding, knowledgeable, and awareness of being good people by nature. Take in the scenery, learn and educate yourself every chance you get. It’s best if practiced daily💞 make it routine, it increases your value to life. 🦋

The Drive

The Drive is the tools applied to our life. What we are doing? Where we are going? How we are doing? And Why we are doing? It’s the purpose of who we are. The tools are used to get us through this roadmap of life. And hopefully the gps takes us to paradise one day. The fact is your belief on your terms. Mine is the Road to paradise to meet my God and praise the glory of his eternal life he has made for me or (us). Our drive is the motivation that determines our abilities to live life to it’s full potential. Be kind, be helpful, be creative, be dedicated, be honest, be hard-working, be the best you can be here on earth. What you didn’t accomplish today, tomorrow will determine your eligibility to continue your ride, drive, and park. It’s not promised, but your legacy is being documented. Your drive is here for others to remember, leave your mark with positive writing, energy, and time. Remember we are crowded here on earth, our legacy can be replaced very quickly. Think about that? Kind of a scary thought, that I did nothing with my time on earth. “Forgotten is invisible to the world” – I believe I matter more than those words. I want to help others see and be the happiness that our God foresee’s. In hopes that happiness is within my soul, shit, pain is the least need or want in my path. If all possible I will detour the road with positive energy embracing the experiences as needed to grow and learn. To enable and produce negative in my life is blocked for construction if all possible. To avoid negative, a road closure will help me fix the problem with understanding and knowledge so the road can reopen with a positive outcome. Don’t you believe you have value to life here on earth? You matter, your time is important. Fix the negative with positive energy. One thing I use as needed, when a negative energy is presented. Example: a negative person, to use kindness is a reflection of my character. If someone feels a certain negative way, that’s their inner character. To embrace positive is not in their ride, the scenery has influenced that ride. I can’t ride with them. But at the moment I can drive the positive to them. If they catch that knowledge with the experience. Then the ride can change the scenery. And hopefully when in park, the influence changed the ride. It’s the ride you choose. I can offer the ride and the park to educate your drive. But I can’t drive that route of negative. Sorry, my road trip has a detour for that ride. Just think about your road trip, it’s your choice to influence the trip. Are you gassing up for a remarkable drive to leave a positive impression..? I know, I’m trying my best 😁🦋

In Park

And finally in Park. . . We are at our thinking and our reflection in our minds and body. Actions, behavior, words, awareness, understanding and mindset We reflect how we are presented. How was your day? Was it a lazy day? That’s okay! In Park is the position in life that reflects our needs, desires, and drive. Thoughts push us in time to drive our purpose. Was it a busy productive day? The physical beating on your body but the feeling of accomplishment? How impressive, great job! No matter what your day presented, your reflection is a stepping stone. A stepping stone that represents you. What your drive determines is what, where, how, and why are life’s drive of understanding, knowledge and purpose. In park is the time to see, feel, and express cultivate your inner drive. You are checking the maintenance of your mind, body, and soul purpose. The- What’s next? What can I do to make my life positive, more for filling to my own being?

What is true happiness? All those questions are answered in Park. Our true being is found, determined, and that is Life’s happiness. Happiness is an awesome feeling. Happiness is healthy. Happiness and Love is the ride, drive and in park – purpose to Life and guide/direction to paradise. Love and let Love!!

As I have share the meaning of human life – purpose. The Ride, Drive and in Park, we can take one promise away from this blog post. A promise of learning, learning to be your best person. First for yourself to be happy- and we all know happiness feels wonderful. Second, is for others, inspire and influence positive energy. If your unsure where to start, I have a blog post for that.. ( will update soon with a link to help improve positive energy). But let me warn you it’s contagious😁 and final… .. 🍀💖

Finally, you don’t have to impress anyone. The trip is yours to enjoy and be blessed. You have to impress your final appraiser. And that judgement day is your will. Your belief and your final destination. Now, with that being said, like I said before, if paradise is my final destination – I’m going to enjoy this road trip with positive energy in hopes to have a big smile on my face when I reach – PARADISE🍀💖🦋

Life is full of the good, bad and ugly. As I know we all had the blessings of love,peace, and happiness- those negative influences have put us through “HELL”! 🍀The battle may be fierce but so is your resolve to win.🍀 My battle has made me stronger, wiser, and aware of who I am. With that being said, I worked to damn hard to go to “Hell” and burn all my valuable work! 💞💖 So I be damned, if I’m giving in to give my hard work, determination, and happiness to the Devil. Not today, Satan👹 – Resolve to win 💕💖🦋

Until our beautiful minds meet again, be safe out there. Much love and many blessings. Remember Everyday Minds Matter -Della 💞🦋

Do you lash out verbally when someone cuts you off in traffic or does your blood pressure go through the roof when something does not go your way? Feeling angry is a perfectly normal and healthy instinct. However, when anger is excessive or uncontrollable, it becomes destructive and can lead to problems at work, in your relationships and in your overall life.

Our anger management is based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). To get in control of your anger, you must challenge the thoughts and behaviors that cause the anger. With the guidance of your therapist, you will be able to identify your personal triggers that make you angry with yourself or others and you will learn how to react in proportion to these triggers. You will be able to respond to your anger in a totally different way, by just letting go of the anger or acting in a different and more harmonious way. With the help of CBT, you will learn to accept and forgive and develop self-control over your thoughts and actions so that you can live life without excessive and uncontrollable anger.

Sign up and start getting happier now

Your therapist is ready to start the journey with you today – so what are you waiting for?

When you are uncontrollably angry, it is normal to say and do things you do not really mean but the impulse to react is too strong at that moment. When your anger gets out of control, the consequences can be very serious. There are no limits to what it will lead to for yourself and others.

🪟 Open to the Public

How we present ourselves to the world

Everyday – is an opportunity

Photo by Anna Tarazevich on Pexels.com

Open to the public, reflects how we present ourselves to the world. Just as no business is open til the lights are on, doors unlocked & first customer comes in.  Its the first welcome of attitude, Just like waking up in the morning. 

Positive gratitude influences what mood starts the day. What will the day become? How many encounters will you have? Will you have new customers or new business opportunities?  Everyday is a new beginning no matter what yesterday offered. Time changes with no regret. Why not build new ideas, give advice or be productive in advance? A simple change in how you present the day, changes the outlook and outcome.

Until the door unlocks and opens, the mind predicts what the future awaits. What mood is the door that let’s the type of energy come through for the day. I give my all to promote a smile everyday. As a conversationist, happiness is always welcome and presented. Don’t be fooled, as I don’t have such good days from time to time. Where I am quiet and conservative, and reserved, like downtime. As I am taking in the world around me. Some days are just a struggle. No matter what that pushing yourself to motivate can’t be tough. It’s up to you to change the day, mood, or challenge. It is the power of your mind that jump starts the moment.

Open to the public is a perception to think outside the box. We are a business regardless of having a business license. We sell ourselves to the world. Everything we do in life is communication, contact, and interaction with others. A good business promoter knows how to interact, influence, and attract opportunities for success. Attitude is of great value in life. As a person if you want 😊 happiness; promote it, it will come in return.

Our minds can pull energy in to help provide our needs and desires. Allowing our mind and body to connect and align is important. Thinking of great ideas is important, but leaving them as thoughts are wasteful. Take the courage to try new opportunities of your own chance. You might be surprised if you created a great opportunity. Nothing is easy, everything worth it, takes time, most of all dedication, and a lot of hard work.

If you want nothing, do nothing, and get nothing. It’s that simple. If life has no purpose then nothing will seem important. Those are thoughts that need encouragement and new thinking to create positivity in the day. A new way of life to feel productive, worthy, and inspired. So when your day is satisfying, it does give comfort in how well you sleep.

At the end of the day, what you put into your day is what matters. That will also determine how welll you sleep. If your day is very fulfilling with physical activity- sleep should fall in routine. If your mind is overworked your physical and mental alignment may suffer. Leaving nights of toss and turning to sleep. Finding that right pattern and balance may take time. In the long run taking time to find that balance is important to your health. Sleep plays a huge role in our everyday lives. Being able to concentrate, focus, solve problems, intellect functions, and being present. When we are open to the public we should be ready. Ready to inspire the world as who we are.

Being you in your own way is important. Your presentation is what people value. If a poor presentation is visible then that quality is left to your viewers. Not everyday will be perfect or as good, but your smile and contact can be noticed. The timing of your presentation can take place anytime of day. It’s important to be ready.

Ready to help, support, influence, and be valuable. If we are to love, to receive love, we must promote it. If you watch and listen that will reflect back with love. The energy of positivity feels amazing. The feet have a nice comfort as you continue the day. Your posture is aligned with the inner feeling of positive energy. You are now open to the public with a reliable presentation. This presentation you created is because of your time, dedication, and hard work.

Are you open to the public? Are you under construction, fixing the presentation for public viewing? You are the future no matter if you’re 12, 31, 54, or 80 years old, your presentation is forever. Be the blessing to someone else. Be contagious, with a positive energy, that everyone wants to experience. I know life can throw rocks, but if we smile and love life. Those rocks can soften to a lighter hit. It’s just a cycle of energy that we create and put out. What’s returned is the energy left behind. Influence, promote, and inspire positivity and the attractive energy is an everyday blessing. 🦋

Until our beautiful minds meet again, be safe out there. Many blessings and much love. Remember Everyday Minds Matter -Della 💞🦋

When Depression is Crippling: The True Face of Mental Illness

Depression behind the mask
Photo by cottonbro studio on Pexels.com

Mental illness is something that affects us all, whether directly or indirectly. Unfortunately, it often goes unseen and misunderstood. The day has come and gone, you accomplished the same as yesterday – nothing. A numbness we question, Why do I feel this way? What triggered such numbness? When did this happen? Who notices the change in my routine and isolation I have created? How am I going to face the world? The feelings are crippling that effect production, motivation, and our mind. A constant struggling battle faced daily.

Depression is one such condition that can be difficult to comprehend, as it is not always visible on the outside. But for those living with depression, it can be an all-encompassing experience that cripples the ability to live a normal life. This blog post will explore the true face of mental illness when depression is crippling, and how to best support those who suffer from it. Mental illness is an often-misunderstood condition that affects millions of people around the world. It can be difficult to understand what it is like to live with depression, yet it can be all too easy to judge someone who suffers from it. It is important to remember that depression is a very real and very serious condition that can have a crippling effect on those who experience it. This blog post aims to provide an insight into what it is really like when depression is crippling, exploring both the mental, emotional, and physical pain associated with it, as well as the negative stigma that often follows those who struggle with depression. Mental illness is a serious and growing problem in society today. Despite this, many people still have a hard time understanding the reality of what it’s like for those living with mental health conditions. Depression, in particular, is a condition that affects millions of people around the world, yet it is often misunderstood and underappreciated. Here this post aims to discuss the true face of depression and how it can be crippling for those who suffer from it.

The Mental, Emotional, and Physical Pain
Depression is a debilitating illness, one that can leave you feeling overwhelmed and helpless. The mental, emotional, and physical pain it causes can be difficult to put into words. It might look like nothing is wrong on the outside, but on the inside, there’s a world of hurt.
Living with depression can be incredibly challenging. It’s a constant battle between trying to stay positive and feeling like you’re not enough. You can feel like you have no control over your own life and are just a passenger in it. It’s important to remember that you are not alone in this struggle.
The physical toll that depression takes can be overwhelming. You may feel drained and exhausted, even if you haven’t done anything physically strenuous. You might experience headaches, joint pain, stomach issues, or insomnia. The mental strain of depression can cause fatigue and make it hard to focus or concentrate.
On an emotional level, depression can leave you feeling numb or disconnected from the world. You may find yourself struggling to feel joy or pleasure in activities that used to bring you happiness. Depression can also lead to feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and hopelessness.
Depression is not something that should be taken lightly. If you or someone you know is struggling with depression, it’s important to seek help. There are many treatments available that can help alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life. Don’t be afraid to reach out for support. No one should have to face depression alone.

Looking Normal
When people think of depression, they usually think of sadness and feelings of hopelessness. But for those of us who have experienced it, we know that there is so much more to it. Depression can be a crippling mental illness, leaving us feeling helpless and unable to cope with our lives.
It is easy to look at someone and not realize how much they are struggling internally. From the outside, they may look like they are doing alright, but inside their mind is a war zone. We all have good days and bad days, but when depression is at its worst it can feel like an eternity of darkness.
It can be difficult to express these emotions, as they can often be misunderstood or misinterpreted by those around us. We may feel ashamed or embarrassed of our struggles, even though they are completely normal. We might be tempted to push people away or distance ourselves in order to avoid dealing with our inner turmoil.
Depression doesn’t always have a physical manifestation and can be difficult to spot in someone else. This can make it hard for others to understand what you are going through. It’s important to remember that you are not alone in your struggle and there is help available. Reaching out and asking for support can be one of the most difficult steps but also one of the most rewarding.
No one should have to face their mental illness alone. If you or someone you know is struggling with depression, reach out and talk to a professional or a trusted friend or family member. You deserve to get the help and support you need.

Hell Inside My Mind
Depression is a debilitating condition that can cause immense physical, mental, and emotional pain. Unfortunately, it is often difficult for those suffering from depression to outwardly express the level of anguish they are feeling inside. This leads to many misunderstandings, judgments, and criticism from others.
While depression can take on many forms and severity levels, those who suffer from it will understand that the intensity of their feelings is not something that can be easily explained or understood by outsiders. It can be hard to explain why, even on a seemingly normal day, we can feel so much inner turmoil.
The truth is that living with depression can be like living in Hell – an unrelenting state of despair and helplessness that cannot be broken by outside forces. It’s hard to see a way out of the deep darkness that depression creates, and it’s equally hard for our loved ones to comprehend the immensity of our suffering.
Living with depression requires compassion, understanding, and patience from both ourselves and those around us. We must recognize and honor our own struggles, while also recognizing that we don’t need to suffer in silence.
No matter how deep the darkness may seem, there is always hope for a better tomorrow. Reaching out for help is one of the best steps we can take towards recovery and finding peace within ourselves. No one should have to face this challenge alone. If you know someone who has been diagnosed with depression, reach out and offer them support. Offer to do things together that might lift their spirits. Do what you can to show them that you love them – all of them – even when they’re at their lowest point. Help make sure that they know they’re not alone in their struggle against this illness!

Until our beautiful minds meet again, be safe out there. Many blessings and much love. Remember Everyday Minds Matter -Della 💞🦋

🚪When Illness Comes Knocking, Beware of Unpredictable Behavior🚪

Unpredictable

Just because someone appears to be exhibiting out of character behaviors when they are sick, doesn’t mean that they are not responsible for their actions or that they can’t control themselves any longer. In fact, the opposite may be true; sometimes the stress of being sick and in pain takes people outside of their comfort zones and they seek out outlets to relieve stress and anxiety (often in ways that are negative). For medical professionals and caregivers, it’s critical to recognize the warning signs of behaviors gone rogue and take proactive steps to protect others from harm.

Mental Health
It’s not uncommon for the symptoms of an illness to make people behave in uncharacteristically out-of-character ways. The unpredictability can be attributed to a number of factors, including the severity and type of illness, as well as the person’s coping skills.
But it can also be due to something called somatization disorder. This is when a person experiences physical pain or discomfort but does not have any underlying medical explanation for it. They will often misattribute the symptom to another condition they are aware of, like irritable bowel syndrome or depression.
This may sound like the opposite of hypochondria– someone who imagines their health problems are worse than they really are– but there are some subtle differences between the two conditions.

Bipolar Disorder
A mood disorder in which the person’s moods swings from periods of over-excitement (mania) or irritability (depression) to periods of sadness and low energy.
Mood swings can be severe, with rapid changes to emotional states that may last only hours or days. These changes are often unpredictable, and may result in a person’s temperament and personality changing dramatically.
The symptoms affect a person’s thoughts and feelings as well as their physical state. An episode is also likely to have a noticeable impact on how they act and interact with others. Bipolar Disorder has some common warning signs including difficulty sleeping, restlessness, talking excessively, racing thoughts, high levels of creativity and impulsiveness. Although there is no cure for this illness it can be managed with medication if diagnosed early enough.

Personality Disorders
Some personality disorders are linked to mental illnesses that can cause severe out of character behavior. A person with bipolar disorder may act impulsively or unpredictably when manic, while someone with paranoid personality disorder might become aggressive and irrational as they worry about things that others would find trivial. It’s important to be aware that people experiencing a mental health crisis may not always make rational decisions or know what they’re doing. Talk to them calmly and offer help if you think it’s needed. Give space and provide care without asking too many questions. If the person doesn’t want to talk about what’s going on, don’t press for information—just be there for them instead. Offer the person coping skills like meditation or deep breathing exercises so they have some tools at their disposal to use when feeling overwhelmed by their emotions.

Drug Addiction
People who suffer from drug addiction are susceptible to many different types of behavior. If they are not in the middle of an episode, they may be a completely different person. They may seem friendly and outgoing but when they need their next fix, they will become aggressive and demanding. Drug addiction is hard to control because there is always that craving for the drug. People who have this addiction will try anything to get more drugs and it usually ends up being something illegal like robbery or breaking and entering. It can lead to jail time, family problems and financial problems. Alcoholism: Alcoholism also causes unpredictable out of character behavior because alcohol affects people differently. It makes some people mellow while others act out aggressively with violent tendencies.

What Can We Do to Help?
If you’re a caregiver and need to step back for a while, it’s important to have an open dialogue with your loved one. Let them know what’s going on, that you care about their feelings and that they’re not alone. Ask them if they would like help coming up with a plan for when you’re not around. It can be as simple as providing a list of friends or family members they might contact in the event they need assistance or calling ahead to let the pharmacy know how many prescriptions are needed each week. You can also explore different living arrangements such as assisted living facilities or nursing homes, both before and after there is an emergency situation where these are necessary. Knowing how much time you will be absent will make all these arrangements easier. For example, deciding whether someone needs more care now so you don’t have to rush finding something later. When choosing between alternative living arrangements, always think about what would best suit your loved one’s needs now and in the future (i.e., having access to medical care).

Mental Health Awareness
Anxiety and depression are a common occurrence in people with chronic illness. When the person is already struggling to deal with their physical pain, it can be hard for them to have a panic attack when they are struggling to cope. The mind becomes the enemy when they cannot control what is happening. Their thoughts become their worst enemies which causes an irrational fear that something bad will happen if they don’t take action.
A lot of these behaviors are often dismissed as childish or immature but this is not the case. Mental health issues should not be ignored and should not be used as an excuse to stop treatment. Educating oneself on symptoms and treatments can help reduce the stigma that surrounds mental illnesses. There are so many factors that go into mental health including genetics, medication side effects, chronic stressors such as finances, relationships and other illnesses. There is no one size fits all answer for mental health disorders.

Mental illness is a battle that can alter behavior. The nature of behavior can impact those we love. Even though one’s behavior is a mental illness state, it’s not always excusable. However, it’s important to know it is an illness. Sometimes being out of character can’t be controlled. But the help available can prevent future effects on others.

The Dangers of Stress: How It Impacts Your Mental Health

Focus – Stress Free!

Stress is an inevitable part of life, but many people aren’t sure how it’s impacting their mental health. Stress itself isn’t always harmful, but the way you handle it can greatly influence your overall sense of well-being. Paying attention to how you deal with stress can help you better manage it and avoid chronic issues like anxiety and depression that are rooted in your inability to cope with stressful situations. Use these tips to help keep your stress levels under control and your mental health on track.

What is Stress?

Stress is the body’s natural response to any type of demand. When you perceive a threat, your nervous system responds by releasing stress hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol. These hormones increase your heart rate and blood pressure and give you a burst of energy. This fight-or-flight response is designed to help you deal with a dangerous situation. But if this response is triggered too often, it can take a toll on your mental and physical health.

5 Signs you’re under too much stress:

1. You’re constantly on edge.

2. You can’t focus or concentrate.

3. You feel hopeless or helpless.

4. You’re not eating or sleeping well.

5. You’re abusing alcohol

The effects of stress are felt in every aspect of your life, including your relationships and work performance. Stress can also lead to serious illnesses like heart disease, diabetes, depression, stroke, high blood pressure, or even more life threatening complications.

We’ve all been there: you feel like a stress ball and can’t stop the anxiety from getting in the way of your life.

Chances are, you have a lot of stressors in your life—some big and some small. Maybe it’s work, or school, or family responsibilities—whatever it is, I got some advice for you on how to deal with it. Trying to manage stress can be frustrating. Writing them down and creating a solution can be helpful.

First things first: take a deep breath! Our bodies can get so used to responding to stress that we forget how to relax. So take a few minutes right now and close your eyes, then breathe deeply and slowly into your belly for five seconds. Repeat this three times if necessary.

Now that you’ve relaxed your body a bit, try thinking about what’s causing the stress in the first place. Are there any solutions? Can you change something? Is there something else going on that has nothing to do with what’s causing the stress? If so, how can you manage those feelings so they don’t get in the way of dealing with whatever is causing it?

If none of these ideas help or if things are just too overwhelming at this point, consider calling someone who can help—your doctor or therapist would be ideal here because they have experience dealing with stressful situations.

There can be situations in our lives that we avoid to an unconscious effect. Not fully understanding or accepting the stressor can lead to deeper issues. To feel better about the stress in your life, find the problem. If changing something on your behalf is needed than do so. Trying to avoid the stressor can make matters worse over time. If the situation is more complicated take time to work through options. Ask a friend or family member for advice. If the situation is more complicated, maybe its time for professional help. You can only determine your stress level and assistance needed. Don’t feel ashamed or embarrassed to reach out for help. Services are available everywhere.

We all been there, I will deal with it later. Who hasn’t said that before? Overall its your health that suffers, mentally and physically. Never is it to soon to fix a problem. But we all just don’t have the time to deal with it. Make time to make you priority. You matter! You deserve to be happy! Your well-being is living a stress free life! Stress is life, reducing stress is the a better way of life.

Until our beautiful minds matter. Be safe out there. Many blessing and much live. Remember Everyday Minds Matter – Della 💞🦋

⏰Sleeping With The Mental Mess

Sleep Through It

Your first thought is, “Oh my, I am not alone.” And then you think, “Well of course I am not alone—there are billions of us!” Just to crawl back in bed, grab the pillow. Ah! To be in that comfy spot, for as long as you want. Its true that we must sleep for the body to heal. Then thoughts start to bring the mental mess, just to sleep would stop those creepers. .You can feel yourself trumbling into a pit of self-doubt and despair. But then you remember that nobody knows what the right way of being is, so it doesn’t make sense to judge your particular version or anyone else’s. We are all just trying our best and this moment too shall pass.

You have spent many hours trying to figure out what makes life worth living—but now here you are with no answers at all except for the most basic ones: food, sleep and love (and varying amounts thereof). As we try to get through the crazy in the world, we forget about the moment. Glad to be present and focused. Ignoring all the needs and wants, leaving us confused.

Here are ideas to help clear the mess;

Perfection is your enemy.

As an artistic type, you are probably a perfectionist. You will also likely be very hard on yourself, always striving for the best outcome and beating yourself up when it doesn’t happen.

That’s all great, but sometimes in order to get something done or make something happen (like stepping out of your comfort zone), we have to stop being so hard on ourselves and realize that our best is good enough. Take a calm approach instead of getting defeating. Be patient to get things done.

We must learn how to accept imperfection as part of our creative process—and remember that there are no right answers! We are all unique individuals who look at the world in different ways; therefore nothing will ever fit exactly as it should or be perfect according to our own standards. Be patient with your achievements, as its only our own standards for the final results.. If you give your best then know its good enough.

Nothing can be solved in a single day.

if we learn anything it’s you can’t expect to fix everything in a given day. It takes time to get through challenges. Sometimes it can be best to make a plan of action. It can be difficult to solve a challenge without finding a solution. Seeing how you will solve the problem in writing; can help visualize needs to a solution.

One of the most important things I’ve learned is to not beat myself up over something, if I don’t succeed at something once trying. Each challenge helps us to learn what works and what doesn’t work. Its okay if you don”t get it straight away.

This is because problems take time to solve, and you can’t change everything in a day (or even a week). It’s also important to have a routine and stick to it as much as possible. Everyone has good days and bad days, so it’s best to get used to this fact and learn how to deal with them.

Everyone’s just as lost as you.

We are all dealing with personal challenges. How we handle challenges is our special task that we learn overtime, our own way.

If you can’t ask for help ask for advice. Given in today’s society thevstruggles are real as ever. Its a messy world and so much to deal with, its easy to want to sleep through it. Sadly it just doesn’t pass over night. You wake up to start the mental mess all over. The problem isn’t still there as we left it.

It’s okay to not be okay

There are no shoulds or musts anymore.. Its a world where we learn to solve problems our way. Most importantly when we aren’t okay, its okay to create a plan. Awareness is what helps us when we aren’t okay. Just being aware can give us options. These option are what feels right or wrong. Knowingly, if you need advice resources are available. If you need to talk those people exist. Its what gets your needs meet.

You can do what you want. You don’t need to follow a certian way and some decisions in life don’t have to be life-changing. No one should tell you otherwise, unless you feel unable to make your own choices or decisions.

You always have choices—and that includes the choice not to make a choice. You can decide not to decide for as long as it makes sense for you, and that decision won’t hurt anyone or anything else. In fact if decisions help then: The less pressure on yourself from external forces (including from others), can be better!

It’s okay to get help.

You can’t do this alone, and neither should you try. Talk to your friends and family, and consider seeing a professional if you need one. You’re in good company—your friends and family are more likely than not going through the same stuff as you!

Be careful what you say yes to, because it can change everything. You know what best for your own being. Just don’t let matters continue to worsen without seeking help for your own being. Prolonged mental health concerns can get worse. Take care of yourself. You are not selfish to need self care.

Until our minds meet again. Be safe out there. Blessing and much love. Remember Everyday Mind’s Matters 🌸

Stressed, tired, feeling unbalanced, weak, and unpredictable at the moment? Your not alone, we all have faced troubling, soul shaking tragedy in this lifetime. How you faced the world day in, day out – you did one day at a time. When two feet give you direction, life challenges- two feet for balance and it’s body and mind – Life. Life challenged your faith, lost hope, one foot on the edge, one foot burning in pain… to make the next move, one finger on the ledge, determined to be focused manage to pull grip – climbed up – one grip at a time. The defeat; a beat and fragile body, unsure the consequences of one more pull and grip? Extreme pain rips beyond every fiber throughout your body. Sweat rolls off your eyebrow, yet you can’t do anything about it, unless you choose to fall.. Life’s ledge and edges aren’t designed with great effort. Life edges are sharp with deep rugged roads From beneath the breathe, a force of strength comes alive. Courage, fire, and fearless, emerged from an inner voice, “you got this”. A voice that determines the result of the next step, grip, and result to Life. That one friend who nearly everytime, will save your ass? You got it! “Your mind”!

We all go through hard times in life and face many challenges that can leave us feeling exhausted, overwhelmed and unsure of how to cope. But we don’t have to give up – with the right mindset and focus we can push through the difficult moments. Life is like a ledge or edge – it can be sharp, deep and rugged at times. We might find ourselves teetering on the edge with one foot burning in pain and uncertain of what the consequences will be if we take the next step forward. At times like this, courage and strength emerge from within as an inner voice encourages us to keep going and assures us “you got this”. This voice is often our greatest friend – it helps save our lives when everything else fails. That ‘inner friend’ is our mind! It’s crucial to tap into our mental resilience when things get tough so that we can focus on the solution rather than the problem and make it through difficult moments unscathed. Though life may seem unpredictable, uncertain and challenging at times, if we hold onto our mental strength and focus on the positive then we will eventually pull ourselves back up, one grip at a time.

Often we think of ourselves as singular beings – one body, one mind. But the truth is that our body and mind are deeply interconnected and rely on each other for balance and wellbeing. The relationship between the two is so important that we must fight to protect it throughout our lives. When faced with darkness in life, we may sometimes be tempted to wash away what we see in the mirror and deny our true self concept. In these moments, it’s crucial to pause and reflect: how am I feeling? What emotions am I experiencing? Do I feel balanced on an axel like an army of one, or twisted, tilted and tested? Only when we accept and understand both the body and mind are in harmony .

It’s good to sit and chill. Take a minute and embrace the moment. You can learn so much in such short time. Encourage routine, a simple smile can circulate for miles. If you catch a smile, it cycled properly, smile again it’s working.😁

Relationships or Friendships

Your mind is not just a friend. Your mind is the master to all commands. Every step of the day, every breath, and creation body and soul. Conflict within can or will take your mind to dark negative places. Your self-concept – friend has only one need, “Balance”. You must work well to compromise in life as best friends. To overcome emotional, physical, and mental challenges – become an army of one. – Body and mind – That one best friend that has strength, and energy to overcome, One mind and one body – an Army of One. Positive energy will generate healthy habits.

Of course we have outside influences of individual known as friends. The outer friends can offer happiness to life, new friends share influences to our personal space. To allow friends into our recruiting lounge, being open minded is needed. Determine the influences and requirements to establish friendship. How does each friend influence your army? Positive energy or negative energy? When energies connect the influences combine forming the friendship. Friendships require us to maintain our self concept army on a regular basis. Once the alignment pulls away, unwelcomed habits form and bad habits become normal. Influences are sought by the energy of environment and relationships.

Bitter “Truth” a separation of body and mind; is destruction waiting to happen. The one relationship you must fight for your entire journey in life – becoming an Army of One. When your eyes went dark, you washed them off,.. looking in the mirror that moment, glancing at yourself: what did you see? what did you say? What do you have to say to your self concept – best friend? What emotions are you feeling? Are you balanced on axel as an Army of One? Or twisted, tilted, and tested?

If you journal release some self-concept energy to yourself. How will you handle a situation you might be dealing with now? Write a journal entry to yourself. What issues are you aware of that are disconnecting your body and mind? If you like please feel free to use comments to share thoughts and offer feedback.

Until our beautiful minds meet again, be safe out there. Many Blessings and much love. Remember Everyday Minds Matter!🤗
