    When I was younger I used to compare myself to

    other people, but as I've gotten older and adopted a new way of thinking, I only compete with myself. I want to be the best version of myself in all areas. Right now I feel like I am progressing wonderfully in all areas except some procrastination habits, and financially (which...

    It's been about two years

    now since I first realized I had a problem. It was my 2nd year in college and I was talking to a professor about my idea for my independent study. She had started making a few corrections and I started to cry and quickly excused myself from her office. I sat in my car crying...

    Stop apologizing for the things you enjoy

    eating. Stop apologizing for the things you enjoy wearing. Stop apologizing for how you prefer to spend your day. Stop apologizing for the things that make you happy.

    A Work In Progress...

    It's been almost 2 weeks

    since I've smoked a cigarette. I didn't think I would be able to do it at first, especially without the use of nicotine patches or gum, but it's honestly very easy now. Week 3 here I come!!

    Before you talk, listen.

    Before you react, think. Before you criticize, wait. Before you pray, forgive. Before you quit, try.

    I don't owe it to you to react positively

    when you mistreat me. I'm allowed to call you out. I'm allowed to be angry. It doesn't make me any less kind or positive.

    If I stand, let me stand.

    Like a mountain, solidly. If I fall, let me fall. Like a leaf, gracefully. If I lay, let me lay, Like a lake, calm and still. If I work, let me work. Like a bee, lazily ;-) If I play, let me play. Like the wind of the sky, rejoicing all.

    Improvement can mean different things.

    I think I improve myself in smaller ways, because I become less ignorant over time. With time, comes knowledge. I try to find logic to things to better understand them or to be more calm about them, so I think in some ways I try to improve myself in smaller ways that I wouldn't...

    For the past 7 years, my life had been mostly a struggle, more so psychologically, as I had acquired a lot of fears which at the time I could not understand, let alone deal with. I was shy, anxious in just about any social situation, and eventually got depressed. I realise now...
