    Been sick for three-four days now.

    Was in much much pain. Turns out, I've been having symptoms of ulcer. Haha not good. But I'm to blame for skipping meals and never eating on time. Anyway, with how I've been treating myself since yesterday, I've been feeling much better actually. Less stomach pains compared to...

    If you haven't read my other stories, my dad got remarried and his new wife wants to take me from my mom. Well, so sorry, Hanna! Next step is seeing whether my brother Benton can come to live with me and my mom. I really hope he will because I love him and I really want us to be...

    I just had the most wonderful experience

    talking with a person that lives across the country. She doesn't even have to compliment me and she made me feel better. Why? Not only did she relate, but she chatted/talked with me for a few hours even after she got home from being with a friend for so long. It may not have...

    I feel like I am having a lot of true healing.

    It's been a really rough couple of years but somehow, something is getting consistently better. I honestly think it has a lot to do with simply removing myself from severely toxic situations by moving. But it's been a long time since I've felt so connected to myself. Even if it...

    There's two moments during the day

    where I draw the most energy; early in the morning and late at night. For me, the morning is very healing; there's this promise that it brings that life goes on. That I was blessed with a new beautiful day. Personally, the mornings that are rainy and dreary are always the most...

    I'm starting to feel better

    since Alexander's death. It still hurts to know that I won't be able to hold him or cuddle him or watch him grow up... but I know that he is with God and the angels now, and I will be able to hold him again one day... <3

    I've been feeling really good lately.

    I think it's because I've realised, that I'm really lucky, that the problems I have are my only problems and that I actually have a life to be grateful for. - Every second every single day.

    sometimes, but hey, their are people worse off. I have my basic needs when it comes to being happy. I'm not saying I don't feel down sometimes, I'm just saying I don't feel down as much. I'm feeling better, and that is a good thing.
