    Always always always strive to be a better

    version of yourself. Evolve, grow, face your demons with your head held high...this is your LIFE and it's not here to stay, so get it together. Life gets overwhelming and it's easy to drown in the everyday struggles. Hard to explain why, but I look up to the sky and see the sun...

    When you're one of those people

    who have been through a lot to the point where you weren't sure you'd make it, I've always been the one to make others happy even if I got nothing in return because I never wanted anyone to hurt the way I did, but now I'm dedicated to making myself happy and building myself back...

    Now I will pick myself up

    and brush myself off. Do what's exactly right by me: study hard, workout hard, take great care of myself... love myself so completely. I will be even more amazing, stronger and even better than before :)

    I am getting ready to run my first 5k!

    It's been a goal since I can remember and after lots of training and prepping I am ready! I have 4 kids so it's nice to do something for me for a change! Feels so good to be taking care of myself and it makes me a much better wife and mom!

    I don't know why but I am always trying to

    improve myself but others see it as if I'm just trying to prove something to them .. They just don't get me ... It's just I want to be satisfied with myself with my talents and etc. by enhancing them ... But they always make me feel different .. Ugh what should I do!

    I am one month sober today.

    I thought I was going to ruin it earlier this week, but I didn't. I used to drink 4-5 glasses or more of whiskey/rum/vodka per night. Now I don't have a single drop.

    You know all the stupid stuff

    that gets you down? Don't let it. You are much better than that so started realising it now. Ignore and forget the cr*p. And just learn to enjoy every moment, like every moment in the present is simply the best. You can make it if you really want to.

    Happiness is not the absence of problems

    but the ability to deal with them.

    How much of ourselves

    and our happiness do we give up to make a spouse happy? You say those vows "for better or for worse", but those vows do not even begin to touch on the many complications that can come up in a marriage. So the question of the day is, if making your spouse happy means making...

    I feel so lonely whenever I think about myself,

    talents? an attractive face? intelligent mind? good social skills? I don't have any of those. I hate it when someone is just being nice to me and denying the fact that I'm a trash because I feel it's a lie, I feel ugly all the time, to the point that I cover my face with my...

    Life isn't static, rather it's constantly

    flowing. My life is a constant work in progress. I don't ever expect perfection, I don't want it. I enjoy the triumph and struggle of self improvement. Working hard, being willing to step out if your comfort zones, expanding your knowledge and willing to challenge your thoughts...

    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!!

    I tend to find that I'm usually quick to fire

    off a snarky answer, or start off with some sarcastic comment. In fact someone just asked me the other day, "Are you so mean because you're English?" (in my defense I'm generally not that mean; I just don't suffer fools too well). Anyway, the thing is it occurred to me that for...

    For the longest time,

    I thought I was at a stalemate with myself. No vehicle, no job, no home. I've achieved nothing since high school, how pitiful. I recently chronicled the abuse I suffered from the second semester grade 8 to the first semester of college, and with it chronicled the effects my...

    It's been about two years

    It started long before I learned how to take

    care of my health and defeat cancer, but without control on my health, I felt like I could do very little to improve. The better my health gets, the more my mind opens its potential and I am able to do what I always wanted.

    I awoke this morning and felt the absence of my usual sense of wonder. I missed it.   In fact, I felt like crying.   Well, I don’t have anything against crying… but … the day was beautiful… did I really want to fill it with my tears?   And where were these tears coming...

    but the truth is that I love the idea of

    improving myself and would love to be able to do that. But whenever I find myself in any kind of unpleasant situation, i don't see myself anywhere near improving my attitude or behavior! and most of the time it's painful and harmful for self.

    On My Road to Victory

    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...

    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.
