Today was rather difficult, not because something bad happened but because my brain decided not to cooperate with me and instead changed in to mushy porridge. It was very difficult for me to do anything I had planned for today. I think I coped well because I didn’t stay idle and I managed to follow my plans in a less productive way,meaning- I took it easy and followed my mighty instinct to slow down.
The key to living with anxiety is to know your mind & body well. If you are able to pick up the signs and symptoms of an upcoming period or attack then it means you are a well trained warrior. The next step is to be able to move on past the attack in a non mentally harmful way. I had spent years emotionally beating myself up for having a worse or post stressful reaction day ( sometimes it lasts 2- 3 days) but I stopped when I realised I was only slowing down the recovery process. I try to keep active and busy as much as I can, when I have a worse day I simply hit the breaks but I still get few planned things done.
Listen to your body & mind, be in tune with it and most of all don’t reject your inner-self because this is where you get the warning signals from of an upcoming panic or anxiety episode. Live your life to the fullest and treat your mental condition as a special addition. I call mine – a partner for life 😉
You don’t have to be perfect to be loved but you should love, respect & accept yourself first to create a mutually stable union of two people who just want to embrace the weirdness and quirks of the modern world adding a pinch of uniqueness into it.
They call me a Weeping Willow due to my long and subtle branches. The side of me which is ruled by the low self-esteem would say – You made a very bad first impression as you were not able to show your real- self. The side of me who is assertive would announce- Screw them! What do they know about me? I’m unique and beautiful. I grew with the long branches which add grace and femininity to my hippy look. I’m a shelter from the sunshine and a soothing place for other animals.
Sometimes we think that we made a bad impression. Does it matter? No, it doesn’t as long as we’ve been our real-true-selves all the way long. People have their own set of mind, thinking pattern and tendencies. It’s a common occurence to be misjudged and musunderstood. What life has taught me is to keep going and let my uniqueness shine through despite others having a different opinion about my character & personality. Some of them change their views about my persona as they get to know me more and some of them don’t. I live my life not to please others but to embrace it and make the best out of it 😊😊😊
I believe in the positive power of the Universe. In my imagination it’s looks like a giant old fashioned weighing scale of good & bad deeds. When one side is tipped over to the other side (it doesn’t matter good or bad) then second one jumps into place to even it up. The balance is the key to a peaceful life. What one forgets is how to tackle miscellaneous occurences & hapenings. If positive & negative mixture is tackled with wisdom & sensible mind then things will fall into place.
Don’t fight the Universe just go with its flow and try to follow your conscience & heart 😊😊😊 Simply be a good person 😊😊😊

A male cat who is strong & resilient. He was found under the bridge 14 years ago. He was weak, bruised, injured & scared. It took him a while to heal but in the end he took a major step and began to gradually build a relationship with us based on trust & love. It seems that he left his dark past behind and started a new life. We all could learn from him. I know life injures and scars us but it’s never to late to start AGAIN AND BE FULFILLED!!!
There are three steps to do that:
1. Realisation of the negative experience and its impact on our lives .
2. Acceptance of the negative experience and the beggining of living our life ‘HERE & NOW ‘ – the importance of being in the present moment and embracing the wonderful visual, verbal & physical things of the surrounding world while focusing on the nature and meditation.
3. Practising living in the present moment and welcoming new life experiences.
Please be aware that it’s impossible to erase the past. The key to forgiveness is acceptance and self-care. In order to heal emotional and mental wounds we must look after ourselves. It’s not about justifying wrong actions of those who have hurt us but its about solely focusing on ourselves and staying away from toxicity of our perpetrators. We are all unique and special. We deserve respect.
If you have suicidal thoughts or if you are a victim of bullying, domestic mental & physical abuse, neglect, rape or any other kind mistreatment please don’t be afraid to share your pain & sadness. Life is beautiful full of surprises.
Remember you are a unique human being 😊
A little tiny dwarf keeps digging holes in the ground to bury other dwarves’ accidental poops. They poop, let her know about the fresh & smelly delivery and expect her to get rid of the turd. The tiny creature considers them to be her friends but for some strange reason they are nowhere to be seen when she has a toilet situation to be assisted with. She thinks she helps them but she doesn’t know that they take advantage of her caring nature. It’s easy to fall into the trap of exploiting dwarves.
Few years ago, I thought doing a lot for others would help me to fill my life with pisitive people. I was very wrong. I filled my life not with the happy & loving beings but preying piranhas. It took me a while to realise the cause of my misery. When I did it I knew that I needed to work on my assertiveness and self- worth. It helped. Don’t be that little miss, be assertive and look after yourself.
It’s Tuesday morning and I’m awaiting for the interview. For a highly sensitive person like me it’s a huge challenge because my brain rushes and processes milion thoughts and possibilities at the same time. It leaves me with a head which feels like a ticking bomb from the Bomberman. The factors that contribute to this state of mind are not only internal but also external. Fair enough for my brain to rush with thoughts like a speedy oyster running away from the coyote but on the top of that lovely chocolate layer of thoughts I have the whole external world and happenings bursting with joy and happily contributing to my well being making it feel like a rollercoaster.
How do I cope ?
I sit down, look and listen. I acknowledge the fact that I’m in the present moment. I can feel my feet touching the ground. I enjoy breathing in and out. I use my eyes to observe people and surroundings. I listen to their feet moving in a fast and steady pace, I can hear a piano playing tunes in the background. I’m one unique individual who cherishes the fact of being alive.
Peace & Love can conquer the bad and bring back the good. Fate & Universe is all we need. Active meditation is a powerful tool to heal and help to move forward even if you feel like the Bomberman 😊
