Let Go of That Grudge

Often times we keep memories to ourselves. We reminisce and find that we are still hurting from past disappointments, rejections, and pains. As we hold on to these grudges daily, we notice how they affect how we treat every situation we encounter. We get stuck because we constantly live our pains over and over again.

It’s time that we let go of those pains. It’s time we put ourselves and our peace first. It’s time we forgive whatever is that is holding us hostage because we’re at the point that it’s changing our behavior. We must learn, make better decisions, and become better.

It’s time that we put one foot in front of the other and progress. We deserve to feel peace for once. Let yourself rest

#MightyThoughts: The Intensity of Depression

Not everyday will be easy, and not every moment will be peaceful, but what matters is the fight you put for yourself to continue on in spite of the struggle. Although life may put you in quicksand, remember to be still and let those sorrows pass you. You will then realize you were never sinking. Find peace of mind when you’re alone in a shaky place. Relax your chaos, then rest. You won the battle.

Late Night Talk With Nina: We are Our Own Limit

We become discouraged when we’re faced with big obstacles as we venture into our passions. We feel that we can’t do it or we’re not good enough, but I’m here to tell you that you can. Whatever goal you set for yourself work at it, push yourself, learn, challenge your mind and your abilities. Create something beautiful. Become that awesome writer, that awesome musician, that awesome tech person, that lawyer, doctor, influncer, comedian. Become your own brand.

The Mighty Story: How Anxiety and Depression Run Me Into Exhaustion

Link: How Anxiety and Depression Run Me into Exhaustion

Preview:

“Even though my anxiety and depression aren’t dampening my resilience and stopping me 100 percent from continuing on trying to find myself, negative self-talk from both ends is making it difficult to push through the bad moments.

I’m exhausted and I want to give up, but I know, despite what depression and anxiety tell me daily, that I can do what I’m good at.”

Peel Off Your Hurt Face

Pull back the face of defeat and see who you are under it. Peel the faces you let cover your potential and your power. Behind the cloud of defeat is the rainbow of recovery and success.

Allow yourself the chance to see what you are capable of. You are capable of more than you give yourself credit for.

Become more of yourself in your growth and see how much greatness can come if you simply think that you can.

SWT 100 Notes Note 29: Exhaustion

You ever been so tired your bones hurt?

You ever been so tired your eyes were heavy and your head nodded to the side?

You ever felt so tired that you could feel real tears forming in your eyes because all you wanted was to be able to sleep?

My worst fear in life is to feel this type of exhaustion again. To feel so much in a daze about reality that I wanted a break from being awake. I’ve become this exhausted more than one time, and I’m so afraid of feeling like this again. I’m afraid of the headaches, the irritation, the hunger, the dissociation, the lack of energy, and the anxiety that comes with it.

While my sleeping patterns will probably never get to where they need to be, I can always count on being able to sleep through the mornings while I gather myself to live through the next day.

College and food service jobs exhausted me so much I just want to be in bed. I want to recover and be able to sleep as much as I need to. I guess that’s why I’m afraid of getting another job.

I don’t want to feel this type of exhaustion again.

Scratch the Concrete with Keys 

As you walk through the slightly lit hallway with your long night gown, scratch the walls with the keys

Scratch the floors

Feel the empty space over your head where your crown used to fit

As you enter the black hole, the feeling of nothing at the end of the walk way

Kneel

Feel for the keys in your palm

Jump down into the darkness

Your crown is at the bottom of the abyss of broken beauty

Acquire your beauty and follow the scratches made from your keys.

Find your way back

You were never lost

Freedom Quote: Have a Vision and Make it Active

However long until the last phase, until I’m able to take action on a vision, I will have that vision and I will believe in it. As long as I believe in it, I believe in myself, I believe in pursuing it, I believe in pursuing myself in it. I am what I want to be. My ideas, my visions, my plans, and my actions are who I am.

Have a Vision and Make it Active
