    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...

    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

    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

    Thank you Adobe! They gave away all of their

    old CS2 programs for free. Now I can finally have Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop on my computer. These may be much older versions, but it will certainly suffice. Now, I can practice more on these and build up my portfolio so that maybe I can actually get a job in graphic...

    For reasons I can't quite understand,

    I am often presented with experiences on my EP home page of people that are distressed and unhappy. I'd hope people don't forget their blessings also and seek some positivity in life with the resources the nature has provided to them (first and foremost, the human brain). I...

    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...

    Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect;

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

    Now that I know there's no way out of this

    so why the hell not be happy and accept it as truth. I'm back to crying all the time but I'm okay now I'm happy now. Everything has an expiration date, nothing lasts forever but this seems permanent so I think it's best to get a way out of it all.

    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...

    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...

    I like my coffee , my juice ,

    the food , the trees , the fresh air , the beauty of this world as a gift to my eyes. The ugliness as a lesson , the pain as a reminder , the happiness as a reward .
