(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Every SNL episodes of Chad are hilarious af. I had to share it. Watch it for fun.)
There are so many popular figures who want people to think they are strong and tough because they use substances and party all night long. To me, strong is when you can sit through your problems and feel your emotions, when you don’t have to hide them. There have been nights where I’ve had to sit on my hands because I want to act out, because I physically can’t sit still in the pain or I’m trying to distract myself from living in the moment.
Stop running and start dealing with life and your problems. It could be as simple as not checking your phone when you’re uncomfortable or alone. Listen to what’s going on in your mind and respect the thoughts coming to you. If you’re spending your entire life chasing the next party, what are you running away from?
What interests me the most, is a person’s mind. Their stories. Their thoughts. Their memories. Their struggle. Their journey. The secrets that lay dormant in their head, waiting to be told. I find it so interesting.
Cause I have been through a lot. And I am just fascinated by other’s hunger for SUCCESS. Everyone has their own struggle. I love learning about someone’s life. How they came to be the person they are today, why they act or talk the way they do. It’s just very interesting.
Once you realize the power of your tongue, you won’t say just anything. When you realize the power of your thoughts, you won’t entertain just anything. And once you realize the power of your presence, you won’t be just anywhere.

Be an authentic version of yourself fearlessly.
When I was fighting depression, I remember hearing this expression and not understanding it at first. When I decided to implement it in my life, a whole new world opened up for me. Change the negative, self-loathing thoughts to positive, self-affirming ones. When you’re positive about yourself and everything around you, you begin to see the world in a different light. Your life today is what you make of it.
Be mindful of the tone of your thoughts. Change your thoughts, change your life. (Not my words.)
Self-care isn’t just holidays and massages. It’s working on your habits, mindset and healing your past. It’s removing toxic thoughts, inconsistent people and places in your life. Self-care is living intentionally, purposefully and consciously.
