Phrases ~ No. 3 ☮ ♥

Rather then being your thoughts and emotions, be the awareness behind them.

 I am thankful for my struggle because without it, I wouldn’t have stumbled upon my strength.

Wake up.

If you read my previous posts, you may think I am a hypocrite for writing this. And, no, I am not hurt by any recent event, or anyone in particular.  But, I am seeing things differently. I am always changing my points of view. This inconsistency, unstable, confused mind of mine that keep things interesting for me.  It makes me remember of all the ways I have seen things before, what I have learned from it and how does that affect the way I see things now.

Positivity always. Kindness. Love. Positive Mental Attitude. ALWAYS.

But, little girl, little boy... Wake up, okay?  People can be nice, people should be nice.  But, that doesn't mean they are. That's just a fact of life puppets. I wish everyone accepted it. You aren't special, Life won't give you a gift because your life is hard, or give you a break because you have been struggling for a while. My best friend told me "If it is hard now, imagine without fighting."   Nobody is going to give you a chance, nobody is going to knock on your door with anything.  Some people seem to have it easy, but we tell ourselves that they must have a problem too.  And what if they don't?  What now? Life isn't fair, some people don't seem to deserve to have things, but they have it anyway. Some people deserve a break, but they don't get it anyway.  So what are you going to do about it?  I read a beautiful phrase by the amazing Zack Magiezi. I will miserably attempt to translate it for you "I saw my dreams, they were prostituting themselves, on the comfort zone." - Zack Magiezi.   I wish more people understood that nothing great will ever happen to them, if they don't get off their lazy arses and do something about it.


I was tired. 


Things didn't change.


So I did. 

(I hope you do too.)

Oh.

“When you lose someone who’s your home, you know, you’re only home in the world. And when that happens you think, oh fuck I should have had a back-up home. Another person, a place, a thing, something to make me feel safe, and I don’t have that. And now I’m lost.”
The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman (2013) dir. Fredrick Bond

Be the change...



This is for my sister, Martinha. ♥

I am sure we all have heard of that saying "Be the change you want to see in the world." And I thought I always knew what that meant, well I didn't. It wasn't until the last few months, that I have realized what that truly meant. And it was my closest sister, that showed me this road. Its that same cliché story, all over again. I am sad, and miserable (again) and she was the light that gave me strength through hard times. She never sugar coated anything for me, and she never made anything easy either. What she did, was beyond help, beyond words. She showed me who she was, and she didn't have to say a word about it.  She inspired me by being the most amazing person I know, she shines her light wherever she goes, and I love her so much for it. There is a quote that I absolutely love that goes ". And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." (I have the full quote here)  And this is what this amazing, beautiful, strong, talented and most importantly kind girl, has done for me.  She showed me there was no need to hate life so much, and there wasn't any need to let people use you either. "Be kind, but don't be a fool, " she said.  She finally put a rest in my mind, that you can't demand change, you must inspire it.  She showed me you should not judge your friend, or tell them what to do or what not to do. How it's okay to be fragile, but strong. She is like a badass porcelain doll. But, glass can't break her. Nothing can. By inspiring me to be kinder to others, I have become kinder to myself, doing so I am able to create my own light. Now I can let my light shine, I inspire others too. In the end, isn't that what life should be like? Once, a kind blind man told me "I help you today. Tomorrow you will help the next person and you tell them the same as I will tell you. When you can, and someone asks for help, you help them. And you tell them the exact same thing. You see? It's a chain it becomes, a chain of love and kindness."  I will take a bit further then that, and tell you not to wait for the wise and the kind old guy. Just help people, whenever you can.

Don't get me wrong puppets, life is hard for me too. Its dark most of the time, it's like when you are a 5 year old child lost in a dark, massive maze. That's what life is most of the time. Isn't it lovely though when someone breaks that darkness just a little? Just a tiny little bit. Someone makes you smile. You go back to your maze, but you did smile. The world is filled with those people puppets, stop looking for kinder people and become a kinder person. That way you will inspire others to do the same, and maybe one day we will all liberate each others lightness. We will all shine.

Girl-On-Girl-Hate






This is for my female readers.












It doesn't make any sense, it makes no sense at all, that this exists. And I should probably explain what girl on girl hate is, but I am sure if you are a girl or woman you have experienced this already. It is the simple fact that we cannot seem to be happy for each other. Girls/women/female population have suffered enough pain and struggle throughout history, and now we are going to turn on each other? Why? WHY?   We girls need to show love and support each other. WE ALL GO THROUGH THE SAME CRAP, wouldn't it be so much easier if we helped each other instead of bashing and competing with each other? Why can't we support and be happy for others success? It's always like this. For example, think of this scenario: X girl gets an amazing job, and she also starts dating this new fantastic guy and she is also intelligent and beautiful. Automatically Y friend is already finding something wrong with her and finding reasons she isn't as nice as people think, or some other reason to put her down. WHAT? NO. 

We have to stop treating other women like this. It's not a competition, you will get nowhere by judging and being rude to other women. We already have a massive amount of pressure on how we should act, speak and mostly look by society. I have read once that a woman sees about 100 advertisements in an hour walking around a city center, about how she should look like.  Why should we empower this kind of thing by being mean to each other? I also would like to point out that no one is better than one another. And no, it's not because a lot of girls have stereotype each other that we should let that sink in and accept it. I have seen so many photos on Tumblr before saying "I am the rock n roll girl and she is the cute-loving-pink girl so we must hate her" THAT'S SO WRONG.  Girls, we can't bash each other to uplift the other. It's like when you are a curvy girl saying "Men don't like bones, you are not a real woman if you don't have curves." That is NOT body positive, so lets stop that! We all beautiful, no matter what size and shape, lets top trying to make someone else feel bad because we want to feel good about ourselves!!
Image result for we are all beautiful tumblrYou know what? At the minute you think about putting someone down,  try, just try once, and yes, this is going to be cliché, but try to say something that will make that person smile. Congratulate them for what they have. Be inspired by those who have achieved what you would like to achieve. When you start to be kind to people, you are not only doing good for yourself, but also to another person. And  believe me, it feels so much better to be kind to others than to be mean to them. When you start to become sincerely kinder to others, you will also start to be kinder to yourself. And who doesn't want that?? If you are really jealous of someone, you should work that jealousy around and start working on what you can do to achieve your goals. And hell, when you are friends with good successful people  they might just even give you a hand to help you get there.  We girls can achieve so much in this life, but wouldn't it be great if instead of competing with each other we all supported each other get there??

It would be hypocritical of me if I said I never felt jealous or felt like competing with a girl before. That isn't true. I think in the conditions all girls have been brought up in this world, no matter where you are from, girl on girl hate happens all the time, everywhere. So, let's change that. Next time you see a beautiful girl, who happens to be all you want to be, don't be jealous of her. Go say 'Hi' to her, and tell her you think she is awesome! And guess what? You are awesome too!

We are better than this girl on girl hate non sense!  Spread some love, and we will eventually end this, so when you have kids, or a niece, or any girl you care about, you won't even have to explain this to them.

(This post is about girl on girl hate, but remember it's not just girls, because even though this post is for girls it goes beyond that. You shouldn't be hating and being jealous of anybody. Spread some love.)
