Social - My views on ANA and OTHERS

I'm going to be straight honest
There is a lot of pressure from media
For a supposed perfection.
Many girls and maybe boys aim for the "perfect bodies"
Does such exist?

In what people call media, skinny is called beautiful
And rarely you see people with those extra pounds
Now (and fortunately!) there are plus size models too
And let me tell you :
They are drop dead gorgeous as well!

I am aware that some of the "perfection"
Is modified digitally
And so the illusion gets fed
And the wrong message goes across.
So, allow me to tell you that NO ONE is perfect.
People tend to see or point out flaws.

Does it make you feel diferent?
Let it NOT affect you.
Let it NOT disturb your peace of mind.
Let it NOT bring you down or shake your strength!
You are worth a lot! AND if someone tells you you're not,
DO NOT LISTEN.

You are worth a lot and so much more! (L)

...AND Those models?
Maybe they are insecure about something too
Who knows?

Think (and please) do not hate your bodies.
See and treat it as your temple.
It is your own and in this life, the one you walk with
The outer shell you show to the world.
Given since birth and by some believers, created by God
It deserves to be cherished.
It deserves self respect and dignity.
It is yours to keep and yours to take care of. (L)


NOTE : I will open another secction on the Music page.
It is where the messages get across...

From someone who is trying to find her path,
Namasté.

Social - Near ANA.

After some time of reflection.
I decided to post this...
I never was too self concious on my weight
Maybe when I was around 14 and under, I was 67kgs
Which was a bit more and above than my healthy weight

Some people would laugh and joke about it
Those which I will not refer.
Not that I have or gained any respect for them
But it just isn't that relevant.

The messages I want to get across today are two, maybe even three.
So here goes...that just pushed me over the edge.
The taunting, the aparently "inocent" name calling
Regarding my body or certain aspects
In my physical were made fun of.
I'll name one which is probably some girl's and boy's problems...
In the gain and loss of weight,
I started to have stretch marks...until this very day.

BUT I know it is treatable,
And absolutely no one has the right
To throw sticks and stones

Just because of that
or just because someone has a bit more weight

*So open your eyes, whoever is reading*
Having a bit more weight doesn't make you that much diferent
We all think, we FEEL, we make options, have opinions
Doesn't matter if you're thin, chubby
If your skin colour is diferent or anything else.
We're all equal. (L)

So please think twice before throwing the sticks and stones.
Put yourselves in their shoes.
It can hurt... maybe more than you think.
And it has sometimes, SERIOUS consequences.

As for me and what happened
I became sick so I lost several weight until around 51kgs.
Note : Sickness can have much of a effect on weight.
And currently I weight 44kgs. That's where the near ANA goes.
Because according to my height
41kgs IS considered SKINNY...
I'm a bit below my healthy weight now...
I started feeling cold, a bit weaker than usual
Besides the fact that my clothes became baggy now...

I sincerely don't like it...
And I'll tell you why...
Because it really can get out of hand
Sometimes, it really does...

So, dear reader or if you are reading me
Do PLEASE get your weight checked by a professional

-- If it is stable, it is time for changing and embracing yourself
It starts in the mirror.
It starts in the INNER YOU. (L)
You don't need to lose weight
If the pointer or exams say otherwise.

-- If it is below, same steps above
Except you need to gain a bit of weight
I know it's tricky, maybe even painful
If it became an obcession
But that's when the family and friends come up
OR even professionals if needed.


Reminder : You're beautiful and you can do it (L)
Nevermind what others tell of if it's bad
There is nothing wrong and
You WILL recover your balance soon (L)

-- If it is above...
If you need to be treated or have a diet
You don't have to feel ashamed or bad
People will be there for you and supporting you
I will! Even if you can't see. (L)
Even if you don't know me.
I am here . God bless!

Here are the lyrics :
Another day where I ask myself why
Avoid the mirror 'cause it's something that I've
Been putting off but I need to do
I let it go and I think of you 'cause
There was a time when we'd look and laugh, but now
I can't help but looking in the past
Turn back time and then we'd turn it around
Change your mind and turn it upside down

Turning back, no I'm not faking
You know I'm yours for the taking
This is where we left off baby
Counting down the days 'til maybe I'll be home again

Chorus:
Somebody wake me, I must be dreaming
Of all we've held on to
I'm falling back to you
So will you take me, back to the day we'll always
Remember and say that this is the way we'll stay
I'll take you away

Open my eyes and I think to myself
Is this a joke and if it is then do tell
You hold a heart you wouldn't have to steal
A perfect smile and the looks that kill, so
You took a chance when you knew I was a mess
There's something 'bout you that was different from the rest
Turn back time and then we'd turn it around
Sweep you off your feet and lift you up off the ground

Turning back, no I'm not faking
You know I'm yours for the taking
This is where we left off baby
Counting down the days 'til maybe I'll be home again

Somebody wake me, I must be dreaming
Of all we've held on to
I'm falling back to you
So will you take me, back to the day we'll always
Remember and say that this is the way we'll stay
I'll take you away

And I don't want to write another song about you
But baby I have to
And I don't know if I could find the words to tell you
All the things that I want to
No, I'm gonna let it go
And no, no, no, I'm gonna let it go

Somebody wake me, I must be dreaming
Of all that we've been through
I'm falling back to you
So will you take me, back to the day we'll always
Remember and say that this is the way we'll stay
I'll take you away
Somebody wake me, I must be dreaming
Of all we've held on to
I'm falling back to you
So will you take me, back to the day we'll always
Remember and say that this is the way we'll stay
I'll take you away

Dance* dance* dance* ! :D
Have a awesome and rocking weekend! ^^

NOTE : The videos and content belong to their
Rightful owners!

I am back!

Life is back.
I held this nickname for the past year and a little before.
Although it has lost its original meaning...

...I will still carry it with me.
I will be Life for whoever needs so .
I will be Life for whoever needs support or a helping hand.

I am still alive eventhough I left this blog inactive
I stopped writing for some months already (I believe)
But now as the times are a bit more stable
I decided to return and write once again
About some good and awareness subjects.

Have a nice weekend everyone
Kind regards,

Life

Depression and Meds

Another point of view.
In my opinion I do not aprove meds much
Usually the organism gets used to the doses.
For some it does work well AND it might be necessary,
On this i'm speaking about...Antidepressants.

I had contact and took for some weeks one called Prozac
Called Fluoxetine over here in PT.
I experienced some side effects such as weight loss,
dry mouth and several headaches.

Some might not agree on this article
But I, speaking as a person who is struggling with depression
Since 2007/2008... I'ld rather go for more natural
Or possible healthier ways of treatment.

p.s.: I'm not rejecting all meds or Prozac in particular
I'm just giving my own opinion.
Yet, do take care of yourself and check which is the best way for you
As some meds can be effective for x and not for y...
Or even harmful for z.

I'm writting as someone who cares for others
And too, wants to take care of herself.
I hope you find your path soon ;
Some lights are around the blog

AND Remember :

Stay strong ! :)
Many blessings,

Life.
