Depression - Detox and Embracing


Good morning,  everyone.
Besides talking and writing about advices for your life and daily basis subjects,
Today I decided to share a diferent aproach
Regarding Depression.

Along with this aproach I will add another subject,
Parcially related to Depression which is Detox(ing).
So, here we go :

A. Everything happens for a reason
This is not just a phrase.
Everything DOES happen for a reason.
And things will eventually work out the best way for you.

B. Depression is NOT a lifetime sentence.
After plenty of time reading articles
and having gained knowledge and awareness about this condition,

- I learned that "it" is not a lifetime sentence
It is a condition, as many others, and it must be treated as such.
You are not condemned because you are facing mental illness.
Face it as another phase of your life.
Face it as you were staring it in the eyes,
As an illness that can be diagnosed and treated.
IT WILL PASS!

- It has a cure, but it all starts in YOU as well.
Friends can be a great support as well.
Avoid being alone when you feel down.

- I fell many times in this mistake
(So it applied to myself too)
Change the thinking pattern.

Change the type of music you listen to,
Specially when you feel heartbroken, sad, upset or angry.
Those emotions tend to attract you to songs
Which reflect those negative emotions.
By having those emotions reflected, they won't be gone
Nor cleansed, instead, they will still be there.

We want to reverse the pattern, that vicious cycle.
And we CAN do so.

C. We can also Detox by getting rid of objects,
pictures or dirt at the space/place we spend most time in.
Starting from our bedroom.

Then our computer...
- By cleaning the files, trashbin and uninstalling programmes you no longer use.
- By defragmenting your CPU and cleaning your disc ;
- By selecting, organizing and cleaning your email inbox ;

Then, the living room. And so on.
Everything will feel better and, impressively, lighter!

Heavy burdens have to go.


As we say, at least in my language
It is something like this :

New Year, New Life !

GOD BLESS YOU ALL... !

World - Shooting in Newtown


Good afternoon , dear readers...

Today (and these last days) I have been thinking through.
Which is why I sincerely took some time for myself...
And then, to write this post.

I have to ask : 
What leads someone (to carry and) shoot a gun
Towards his own mother, 20 innocent children, 5 teachers,
Then, put an end to his own life??

This tragedy occured in Newtown, USA in 14th of December
At Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Even thought this happened, it must carry a lesson.
It MUST say something to people... that something IS WRONG!
People must act and react in order to prevent these type of tragedies.
WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING.
Not only about School Shootings...

But also about murders, accidents, terrorism, trageries DONE by human hand
Blood spilled, precious lives lost
ALL DONE by human hands...


WHY??



Rest in Peace, little angels.

You all had a whole life in front of you... 


Besides these young lives...the shooter has took the lives of teachers,
Who were, as the students, just doing their jobs...
Some even sacrificed themselves in order to save their students...

   Rest in peace...

Another point to consider is Gun Control and School Safety.
Celebrities have gathered to demand a plan. We need a plan...

How many more need to die and be injured until someone acts?

We must start acting for a change now, today...

Seize the Day - Life´s Advice


Good afternoon !

Seize the day.
Cherish it as there was no tomorrow.
Respect your elders.
Pay attention to your family.
Love them.

Before it is too late because you will never know what can happen in the future.
Never regret, carry no malice towards yourself or others.
Leave nothing to say and try not to carry anger towards anyone.

God bless.



Lyrics :
Open the gates and seize the day
Don't be afraid and don't delay
Nothing can break us
No one can make us
Give our rights away
Arise and seize the day 

Now is the time to seize the day
Send out the call and join the fray 

Wrongs will be righted
If we're united 

Let us seize the day 

Friends of the friendless, seize the day
Raise up the torch and light the way
Proud and defiant
We'll slay the giant
Let us seize the day 

Neighbor to neighbor
Father to son
One for all and all for one 

Open the gates and seize the day
Don't be afraid and don't delay
Nothing can break us
No one can make us
Give our rights away 

Neighbor to neighbor
Father to son
One for all and all for one

The Power of Thought - Life´s Advice


Good morning, to whoever is reading (L)
It's not 11 am still and Winter is showing itself.
It's freezing now, but nothing that a good cup of tea
(Or hot chocolate) can't solve! ;D

The topic I decided to approach today is Thinking Patterns
We all tend to think now and then a bit negative.
However, that can be harmful not only for ourselves,
But for the ones who live with the person nearly everyday
And also, for our health.

Thought is a very powerful tool
And CAN have a great impact in our lives!
SO, be careful with what you do and/or wish for.
If you see or notice that your thinking pattern
Is holding you back from achieving your goals
Or holding you back from having healthy relationships
With your friends, family or your better half,

Then it is time to think and reconsider.

Notice : The change of a thinking pattern is not instant.
It requires time, patience, faith and will.

Then you MUST ask yourself and consider these points:
1. * What do I want for me?

2. * What do I want to be attracted to me?
(As in goals, purpuse, energy, any area of your life
It is called the Law Of Attraction)

3. * Time is an ally and God is healer.
And if you do not believe in God, you can be your own healer.

4. * What has been holding me back from achieving what I want and desire?

5. * Now and then get some time for yourself. And rest.
Not resting can result on not apreciating as well YOUR day.
Because there is a new day, everyday,
Starting from the moment you open your eyes.
There is a chance for CHANGE and there is a chance for RENEWAL.

I suggest these websites as well:
6. * Another advice is for you to think for yourself
Avoid making part of the masses.
Think as an unique individual and not as the Media tell you or as other people tell you.
It is important to be faithful to your own opinion.
To stand out. To be YOU, not another sheep in the system.

7. * NO, NOT, NEVER...forbidden.
Negative words aren't allowed in thoughts, nor writtings.
What you think may be attracted to you.
You can start for example, writting in a notebook the best times of your life.
The joyful, playful moments. Any that aren't in those categories, aren't allowed.
At all. :D

Blessed be, always*

School - Strategies for Study


Good afternoon , everyone!
First of all, allow me to say (or justify) the cause for my absence:
After some time working for few companies, my temporary contract ended.
I was unemployed then.

With the help of one friend, I knew about a teaching institution here in my country.
It was a wise option (in my eyes) so I tried it!
After some tests and two interviews I was approved and called to start the course!
HOW COOL IS THAT?!
I am willing to go until the end with this course as I have fought to earn a place here.

The trick is to be motivated and truly believe you want to be in that course,
In that job and reflect that positive thought and atittude to the ones around you.
The chances of entering will surely increase!

As for strategies to study I have some tips for you.
Some are good. some might even work out just for me.
You can even adapt them for yourself.

1. The place : I can either study at a noisy place (with headphones on)
Or a more peaceful one.
However, my advice would be to search for a peaceful and quiet place.

2. Organize.
Whether it is a folder or a notebook or even files on your computer
containing .docx word files with each discipline, a great start is to have each discipline separated,
Then separated per lessons
(One to ten, Eleven to Twenty OR One to Five , Six to Eleven and so on...)
Use the tactic that you find that helps you the most.

3. Highlight the most important parts of each new subject, with a bright marker or pen.
That way can help you with learning and knowing all the things that you need before each test/exam.

4. Use keywords.
Some can memorize by using similar words.
It helps to remember, later on.

5. Pay attention to class.
Talking from experience, I payed much attention to class during my schoolyears.
Knowing all the things you need, even if it is at least a bit, can help you out
and that way you do not need to study TOO much.
I do not intent like, to tell you to not study, BUT to study from time to time,
In order to not "overdose" with your brain with the disciplines.

6. Aiming for relaxation.
Lighting a scented candle or incence stick, putting relaxing music on.
Aim and fight always for the best.

7. Start off by the most difficult disciplines.
Then study the ones you can master.
Due to this simple reason :
When you start off your study, you have plenty of energy, unlike the end of that time of study.
The disciplines that you do not understand as well
Will require more concentration and more energy, dedication from you.

The ones you will leave for last will be the ones you are better at
Or on which you feel you can get great grades.
You can study those just to double check the most important points.


I hope I was able to help,
More posts and new features will appear soon.
Take care, my dear readers!

Relationships - Family

Good evening everyone...
Today's chosen subject was Family.

In my views...
Family is always a family. Always!
No matter how many argues or fights happen.
We never agree on everything and nothing.

The family is a heaven in a heartless world.
-- Christopher Lasch

Family is loving, it is about being there
Through it all. It is about LOVE , cherishing
Each member. We can all have ups and downs
But always, or almost always, they are there.
They see you, the way you are.

A family starts with love and caring
That should always be a reminder
Always...even through dark times

-- by Life

And sometimes...we are placed in a particular type
Of family for a reason. Or for many reasons.
For a Purpose. For Acceptance.
To know the "rights and wrongs"
To know what to do and what not to do or say in the future
To learn... enough that in years to come
You will know when and how to start your own.

It doesn't matter if one family is poor...
Or if one family is rich...
What trully is important is LOVE!
Love that unites each member.
Love that keeps the family together,
Keeping it from falling apart
When troubles lie close.

What greater thing is there for human souls
than to feel that they are joined for life -
to be with each other
in silent unspeakable memories.
-- George Eliot

Money can buy toys and material gifts
But money cannot buy Love.

It doesn't matter if the parents are straight or of the same gender. 
Gender and sexual orientation do not define parents 
ways of educating their child/children.
It is about receiving each member with open arms, 
With love as they deserve!



So cherish your family!
And treat others as you would like to be treated.

Many blessings
To each family
And to every family out there...

Relationships - Past




Good afternoon,

The subject for today is about Relationships and Past.

1. How does the Past Relationships affect Present Relationships?
Answer : Past Relationships may affect the present when something is undone,
unsolved or when insecurities, fears, bitterness or resentment are left along.

2. Can it be solved and how?
Answer : Past is Past. It has happened, it may have scarred and injured
BUT it is over.


"Past is not the way to go nor the path to follow. 
Past is something to see and to learn from.
Past is not the way to live or compare.
Past is lived and told by museums, not by people and relationships".


3. Any advice on how to overcome from a past relationship?
Answer : In my opinion (just my opinion) if the relationship is now part of the past,
it makes no sense to live on, be stuck at a or even try to go back to it.
For many reasons that I am going to say :

Reason number one : 
If the Relationship (regardless of being LDR or not) ended, it ended for a reason.
Relationships (whether it is boy with a girl or girl with a girl or boy with a boy)
Happen when the feelings are mutual. If one day the other part is unhappy 
Or the other part no longer feels the same think : 
Is it fair to any of you to force a relationship to happen 
If the other person is no longer happy in it?
In my opinion it it much more fair to let the person go, 
To pursue his/her own happiness, 
Even if it costs your own.

Then who knows the present and future?
Present it is that. A gift!
You can find someone and meet someone that can treat you better
And whose feelings match your own. (i.did)
And who makes you happy, loving you the way YOU are.

Reason number two : 
Sometimes (often) the "coming back together" is a mistake.
Because many times the ghost of the break up and why you two broke up is there.
It hardly fades away. The insecurity. The difficulty to trust.
And trust in your partner is needed.

Reason number three : 
If you two are back together after a betrayal (regardless of who did it) it is hard
Not to say impossible for things to be exactly the same again.

4. How to move on from that Past?

Answer : First of all you need to know and you need to find out
What was it that in that Past has disturbed you 
Or left scars in you, still visible in current relationships.

Some examples : 
Poor self esteem, insecurities whether it is dificulty to trust
Or fear of being cheated / fear of being left for someone else.
Or even insecurities about your own person may occur.

5. Even if I have any of those problems, what should I do?
Answer : First of all , talking with either a psychologist
Or councelor would be adviced.
Also, confronting the roots of the problem is probably better than avoiding the subject. 
Many times people avoid or place in the back of their hearts and minds.
When those problems are painful and hard to bear.

They simply do not want to touch them...
But they need to be confronted, otherwise it will keep hurting
And it will keep being along the way, standing in between...
(I will write more about Therapy and its objectives in another post)

It will take time to heal. But you will eventually heal and be happy
With one person you love. Which I know you can.
Take care. P.S. I.l.y.W.

World - Haiti and Causes


Good evening, fellow readers.
Here in Life Blog,
We not only want to bring awareness about one's diseases or disorders

Yet, we also aim to alert everyone
Each and every conscience, ONE BY ONE
To important (not to say essential) Humanitarian causes!

We have to open our eyes to these type of situations
Such as Natural Disasters, Poverty and Disease.
Awakening begins in each one of us.
It begins in you, it starts in me.
It starts in each one, everyone!

Just the game/experience itself can bring the person
(Maybe) to a close reality of what may have happened
in Haiti (Port-au-Prince) in the year of 2010.

Haiti - Inside Disaster

This experience is more or less how it happened
You can take the role of either a Survivor,
Team Aid Worker or a Journalist on the Scene.

In that game you can establish dialogues
and make choices as if you were actually there.
It looks pretty realistic so...
I would advice people discretion while playing it
(The own website has warnings regarding those)

In my own views and Perspective, it also carries an important lesson along :

To SEE as if you were there.
To Be aware of others suffering.
To NOT look in one's own bellybutton
BUT to look in a wider scale and look upon others
Specially in their times of need.

" Because you will never know...
One day it can be someone you do not know
One day it can be one fellow brother or sister
In distress. Yet, one day it can be you
Or someone you held close to your heart...
So, please, help while you can
And serve others while you live! "

-- By Life

God bless you all!

Relationships - Commitment

Hi everyone! :D
Again back to the most requested subjects on Life Blog!
Today's evening subject is about Commitment or,
as many called it "being taken" to someone.

Being in a relationship is not an obligation.
It is not meant to be filled with pain and sorrow
It is amazing and wonderful, when you are with
the person you love and that loves you back. I am. (L)

He knows who he is. W.
I have been with someone amazing for a year
We understand eachother rather well
Also I feel that in the many times that
I was "Through Hell and back" he never abandoned me
And I, was several times holding onto him when he fell in sorrows.

Love is this : It is never meant to be perfect
There are problems, stress, many things
Nothing is perfect. 
YET...Love is...
Seeing another part of yourself in other
Imagining and making plans, a life with your other half

Standing through it all, embracing and accepting
 And I remember when we met
Those sweet, brown eyes,

The Friendship that began, a strong foundation
And the Love that bloomed between the two.

You make me feel complete, happy and whole
You showed me love,
Now, walk with me,

Heart to heart
And hand to hand
To our destiny, together.
P.S. I love you.30.5

World - New World Order


This is a rather delicate subject on which many users on Youtube went inactive upon. 
Were they no longer posting due to busy lives 
Or Were they forbiden to? 


Wondering why...
OR Is censorship still active in many countries?


I am not sure, yet some things get really suspicious.
Some things ARE suspicious.
And hereby, I am entitled to my own opinion
On which you aren't forced to follow...


Therefore you can, as well, in the end, 
Take your own conclusions and make your own choices


Yet, please take the time to listen and take your time 
to Search and Research...patiently with an open mind, 
Patiently without any fear or obcession
Search...and see the raw truth.


The information is at hand
Knowledge is the key to Awakening.


And do not allow yourself to go along with lies 
Or modified messages.


Source - Wikipédia.org, multiple videos.


Names to be know...


What is the New World Order ?
"New world order" to refer to a new period of history evidencing a dramatic change in world political thought and the balance of power after World War I and World War II. They all saw these periods as opportunities to implement idealistic proposals for global governance in the sense of new collective efforts to address worldwide problems that go beyond the capacity of individual nation-states to solve, while always respecting the right of nations to self-determination. 


Illuminati
A Secret Society, an Elightnent-age created on 1-May-1776, 
Plotting to create a New World Order through a one-world government.


Skeptics argue that evidence would suggest 
that the Bavarian Illuminati was nothing more than a curious historical footnote 
since there is no evidence that the Illuminati survived its suppression in 1785. 
[Excert]
  
[...] But they survived, there are evidences.


Population control and Mass Media
I think they are hand to hand.
They want that there exists only One Order that dominates the population. 
They start off by dominating the mind (mind control) 
and also using Mass Surveilance (also called the "all seing" 
Eye in top of a piramid. 


That symbol, you can see it in many places, including dolars, I believe. 
Also, conspirancy theorists think that that New World Order (NOW) 
Wants to control Reproduction of individuals.


The Complete Article :
Wiki - New World Order


It is not a fairytale. 
And one proof is: 


Pay attention to what you see. 
To what you listen. 


Many music artists are involved and controlled.
Many messages are in music and television. 
In logos or comercials...even cartoons!
But only to ones that pay attention...closely.


Sometimes, it is so subtile that you don't notice!
Sometimes, you see it so many times that you get used to it, 
Your eyes, your ears get used to it all.


Slow down and reverse some songs.
You may get surprising results out of that...


One reality is for sure :

One reality is for sure : The economy is sinking!
At least here in the UE countries.
The bankers and polithicians are getting more and more RICH. 
The rest of the population is getting POOR.


That eventually will give MORE power to the higher ranks.
And a DESPERATION feeling to the populations...
Desperation and Powerless feelings WILL allow them to take full control.

Awake and SEE... it is not too late...

Travelling - What to take...



Good morning everyone!
Today's subject is about travelling and what would be adviced to take.
I am doing one for girls (I am a girl) yet this post can be adapted to boys also
I shall put a note on optional items / depending items too.


P.S. I am not considering travelling at all, I am doing great here in my homeland
Despite of the economical crisis here and over the UE.
Also, I thought on making this particular post because
I had these notes for a long (longest!) time and I am cleaning my room, so yeah :P
Probably I'll also make a post later on how to organize the room.


On the bag...  What to take?


Main Travelling Bag


Whether a bigger bag or a trolley (it would be more practical due to the wheels)

-- Let's suppose for a week or less --


ESSENCIALS
TOP -

- T-Shirts or Tank Tops 
(T-shirts can be versatile, specially if they are of neutral collors for example white or grey)


- Dress
(One or two, only if you are into dresses.
By dress I mean whether a summer dress or simple black dress)


- Sweaters (three or four) 
Depending if it is a cold country or not, otherwise you won't need much, 
maybe only for the night time (can get cold during that time)


- Blazer (one) 
(Can be one coloured as a statement piece in blue, pink or black
Or a simple black or grey one. It is an optional piece, though
If you don't like blazers you can take a leather jacket)


BOTTOM -

- Underwear 
(Some pairs, three or four, depending on how long your vacations are going to be).


- Pijama / Pijamas
(Whether is a top and pants or t-shirt and shorts one or two would be the adviced)


- Jeans 
(One pair or two. What matters is that the jeans fit you well and that they are confortable
The advantage of a good pair of jeans is that it can be used whether 
in a casual moment or a formal ocasion depending mostly of what you combine on top)


- Cardigan Coat (a blue, brown, gray or another colour.
I find them a cute piece of clothe and also it can warm you up on mild, or spring days).

Shoes -
- Sneakers
- Regular shoes and/or Sandals
- Slippers (to wear around the house/hotel)
- Boots 
- Heels

Others -

- Towels ( face = small , head = medium , body = larger towel)

The optionals ?


- Blazer and/or Trench Coat

*Blazer (one) 
(Can be one coloured as a statement piece in blue, pink or black
Or a simple black or grey one. It is an optional piece, though
If you don't like blazers you can take a leather jacket)

*Trench Coat
(This one is optional but a good choice, specially 
if your vacations are going to be on cold or rainy countries)


- Fabric Jeans (a black or grey or khaki pair of jeans. 
Those are more formal would be wearable for a date for example, if you are not into dresses. Otherwise they are good for formal/work related meetings and job interviews abroad).

- Dress (one or two, only if you are into dresses.


By dress I mean whether a summer dress or simple black dress)


- Boots or Sandals (Depending if you are going to a cold or hot country)


- Heels (take them only if you feel confortable with them. Adviced - black shoes w/heels)


- Small umbrella (only in case you are going to a rainy country) 
or gloves (only in case you are going to a rainy / cold country)
or Hat / biquini / shorts / sun cream (only in case you are going to a hot country)
or scarf (optional)


- A blanket (this one I would only advice in case you are on the plane and if its a long trip 
or an Interrail).




Necessaire (A smaller, hand bag)


- Shampoo / Body Gel / Perfum or after shave (instead of taking bottles you can take several samples)
- Deodorant (roll on, preferably small deodorants)
- Soap (a small soap would be enough)
- Tissues
- Pads or tampons (in case you're a girl and anything happens...)
- Scissors , razors, manicure kit or any basic makeup.
- Brush, toothbrush and toothpaste (there are small/portable of those, for trips)
- Sun cream (OPTIONAL, only if you are going to a hot country or beach)

Main Bag (Purse or Suitcase)

-NOTE- If you have plenty of space on your purse/suitcase/main bag
you can move the stuff from the necessaire to the main bag.
In that case, the smaller/hand bag is no longer necessary!


- Wallet (documents (such as Passport, ID, cards and money)
- Mobile phone/Cellphone and cellphone charger.
- Phograph Camera (or only the cellphone in case it can take good pictures)
- Mp3 / Mp4 or Ipod. 
- Keys
- A Map (can be useful in case you do not know the country)


ADVICE - 


1 - Always keep an eye on your stuff.


2- Put name and contact or any reference in your travelling bag
Or even put a lock on the travelling bag.


3 - Search and be informed about the weight limits on the airports 
and check the limit that is allowed on weight to avoid any unpleasant surprise.


4 - The heavier clothes such as the leather jacket, sweater, boots (example)
Take them dressed on.


5 - Either take a rechargeable mobile phone card 
or  you can go to local computer stores to keep contact with your family and loved ones.


6 - Take extra money with you... 
Because if you do not have relatives living in that country
You will probably need to find an hotel / place to stay, plus spendings with food or souveniers.


7 - If you are from the UE or any of those countries and you are going to one, 
a passport isn't needed, yet you have to have your ID or Citizen Card. 
In other cases or countries, take your passport

Relationships - Grieve



Today's subject is relationships...


Not exactly nor only romantic relationships
But the grief, loss of someone close and dear.

It is a delicate yet painful subject to handle on your own.
I know it. Specially when someone dear to you has passed away.

1) The first thing to do is find support
You can come talk with me or with Wordskeeper,
Call or text a friend or talk to your family.

2) Most important thing is to TALK and SPEAK OUT 
What you are feeling. Express it out...
If you need to talk, talk. If you need to cry, cry...please, do not held it all in. 
Do not allow everything to build in as it can be VERY destructive... 
(Talking from experience, really!)

3) I know it sounds unreal at first, then you might even experience a denial phase.
Then questioning, all the doubts. The process, in my opinion :

Unreal // Denial Phase -> Slowly starting to realize -> Grief//Pain 
->> Need for support -> Collecting Memories and Remembering them 
(Afterwards time will help and the pain will be minimized leaving only the good memories about your loved one) 

Note : You can decide to talk with your family, friends, us or a councelor.
But please always talk with someone * 

God bless & Stay strong**

Life´s Advice - Find Strength

Good evening, fellow readers
I want to leave to you these empowering and inspiring songs
I really loved them!
And I think they are really touching :





Your pain will not last forever.
After the darkest times and even after the coldest and rough nights
There will be better mornings!
Just keep faith of greater times in the future
Because you have it ALL to suceed.
God bless you all!

Job - What to do on the First day

I have some experience on the matter
So I will do my best on writting to you about it :

A) What to wear :
Avoid anything that is too tight to your body
OR that looks sloppy. Tracking suits are a no.
If you are a girl, don't use a miny skirts
or clothes that are too revealing.
If you are to wear a skirt, wear one that goes around
or below the knee area.
You can also wear a blazer to match the skirt.

If you are a boy, you can wear a suit
Avoid sloppy clothes as well
Shave the beard or trim it.

B) Organize :
Take documents that you need
Such as your resume and certificates.
You can take a folder, briefcase
or portfolio with all that you need.

C) Time :
Make sure you either arrive earlier
Or right on time. It is a plus.
If not, the impression will be maybe a bit damaged.

D) Colleagues :
Knowing your co-workers takes time
maybe quite some time.
You are not forced to get along with all your colleagues

Job - My very first day at work

Good morning, everyone! I hope you are going great;
For today I have decided to share with you a rather old
And funny experience at the very beginning.

Sometimes the VERY first day isn't easy
Specially when someone gets nervous OR has quite some expectations;
Like me, for an example.

Eventually (and with time) I have learned to
Relax more and not to get overwhelmed
With all the stress.

No drama needed :
If you make through it, GREAT !
If not, off we go to find better chances
AND opportunities are out there for you*
I know it!!

My very first day was a MESS.
First of all, I have met the boss
and I was to work as a recepcionist at a rent a car stand.

NEXT DAY :
Official day at work - Day one
I got dressed and put a pair of boots with a heel.
My self confidence was up and I was ready to go to work.
I arrived to the stand (which was sort of a garage)
And there was a ramp...so I had to walk all the way down to the reception.
My boss was staring at me and waiting.

I started to go through the ramp
BUT I wasn't expecting for the ramp to be slippery
And I FELL...fell a bit more...and ended right in front of him.
My leg was twisted and landed on my bottom.

My boss asked if I was alright:
I got up instantly, smiled and said "I'm fine"
A clumsy start, indeed... but I stayed!

Prayer : When...

I have seen a beautiful Prayer so I decided to share with you :
(Translating made by me from PT to English)

When dreams falls appart...
GOD rebuilds! ♥
When strength ends...
GOD renews! ♥

When is inevitable to held back tears...
GOD gives joy! ♥
When there is no more love...
GOD makes it come to life! ♥

When a curse is certain...
GOD turns it into a blessing! ♥
When it seems to be the End...
GOD gives a new start! ♥

When affliction persists...
GOD surrounds us with peace! ♥
When disease rages...
GOD is the one who heals ♥

When impossible stands...
GOD makes things possible! ♥
When words are missing...
GOD knows what we want to say! ♥

When everything seems to be closing in...
GOD opens a new door! ♥
When you say: "I am not going to make it"
GOD says: "Do not fear, for I am with you!" ♥

When the heart is injured/hurt by someone...
GOD is the one who spills the healing balsam! ♥
When there are no possibilities...
GOD makes the miracle come to life. ♥

AND YOU KNOW WHY?
Because He loves you!!

Self Injury -The Butterfly Project

Good afternoon everyone!
How are you doing?

I am going well, in case some readers might be wondering
I have two jobs and I have been quite busy
But I will keep updating the blog as much as I can
And also, share with you any experience
that I might endure recently.

Today I was checking a social network website
And I found this great cause
It is called The Butterfly Project

The Rules of the Project are
1) When you feel like you want to cut, binge or injure
take a marker, pen or sharpies and draw a butterfly on your arm or hand
(Adding...or place where you inflict pain/self injure)

2) Name the butterfly after a loved one or someone who really
Wants you to get better

3) You must let the butterfly fade naturally.
NO scrubbing it off

4) If you cut before the butterfly is gone, you have killed it
If you don't cut, it lives.

5) If you have more than one butterfly
Cutting (and hurting yourself in any way) kills ALL of them.

6) Another person may draw them on you
These butterflies are extra special.
Take good care of them.

7) Even if you don't cut, feel free to draw a butterfly
to show your support. If you do this,
name it after someone who you know that cuts
Or is suffering right now, and tell them.
It could help.

Note : I am not the rightful owner or responsible for the project
I am just a blogger and someone who seeks recovery
to other and/or anyone who struggles with self injury, disorders
Such as me, who experienced such, previously and recovered.


I will leave below, the link for information and awareness :

AND FOR YOU...



And I leave this image of a butterfly...

(I do not own the image either)

As a sign of my unconditional support

For this cause and for whoever is struggling.

Blessed be!
