    So I was thinking about just how perfect life

    is right now, and about how about barely over a year ago I was suicidal, in a great deal of emotional pain and drowning under my anxiety. It just goes to show how fast life can turn around. I never made any plans for suicide or anything, but I'm so glad that I never descended...

    Friday has finally come,

    and I am screwed up as usual. It's so bittersweet; my skin is warm and my problems have faded into the distance. I may not have anything else going for me, but at-least I can be wrapped in God's blanket now! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBru4MPtEik

    I fall, I rise, I make mistakes,

    I live, I learn, I've been hurt, but I'm alive. I'm human, I'm not perfect but I'm thankful.

    It's been a year and a half

    since my Dad died and I embarked on some typical mid life crisis activities. I don't regret any of them, they have changed me for the better. Life is just too short to neglect yourself while trying to make sure everyone else is happy. EP, and some of the people I have met here...

    For a while I really cared what people thought

    about me, then one day I just realized, who cares what people think? I'm not gonna know them my whole life so I might as well go ahead and be me :) Life is so much better just being happy with yourself and it makes talking to people and making new friends so much easier

    My Scan Results Were Good! I'M So Happy!

    About a month ago I went to the doctor for a pap smear. I hadn't had one in about ten years (bad I know!) the tests results came back and I'm fine. I'd been having really bad stomach pains. The doctor thought it could be acid reflux or gallstones so I went to get an ultrasound...

    Life has been so much better.

    Why do I feel weirdly giddy

    after eating a sugary breakfast? It's the chemicals right? Speaking of which, am I the only one who feels weird when I'm happy in general? I still think negatively like usual, but I feel unnaturally happy, the bad kind. It's like getting a pizza delivery when you didn't order...

    Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect;

    it simply means that you have chosen to embrace the imperfections.

    I feel strangely at peace,

    on this night where I find no rest, and I have an exam in a little under 5 hours. Lately I'm learning to accept things as they are. My issues roll off my back like waves. Unhappy thoughts I swat away like gnats. I've begun to notice how beautiful the world is. I can't stop...
