My Imperfections

The scars on my hands and legs

Remind me that I’m a fighter

That I can make it through anything

That I can survive the worst and make my way back

The stretch marks on my body

Remind me that I’m an adult

And not all change is bad

Because this one sure wasn’t

The marks on my knees

Remind me of a time when I was younger

When I wasn’t afraid to fall down

Because at least I was walking

The dark circles under my eyes

Remind me that to achieve your goals

You have to work night and day without stopping

Because in the end it will be worth it

The blisters on my feet

Remind me that even though you may take the wrong path

Eventually you’ll find the right one

You just have to keep walking

This post is about loving your flaws and not letting them get to you. Every mark on your body has a story behind it and you need to embrace them.

Devastated

It is hard to believe what they say

With every sentence uttered

From their perfectly synchronized lips

That the fate of humanity could be so cruel

Their actions carried out against our brothers and sisters

Out somewhere are real

 

I can not hear them anymore

It’s better to switch the channel

To shut out the agonizing truth of their life

From mine.

If I don’t hear it, it’s not true

If I don’t see it, it’s not true

Their tortured pathetic life is now a fictional story

 

But does it?

Do they stop seeing their loved ones from being slaughtered

Every

Single

Day?

To live within rules

Confined and suffocated

 

And it makes me so mad

That all I can do is watch them

No words to sympathize with them

For words lost all meaning when

Their slaughtered blood dripped on their beloved soil

Random Thoughts

I know I haven’t been posting much lately but it’s because I have just been really overwhelmed with school. Because of that I didn’t have like something specific I wanted to write about so I thought I would right about some of the things I have been thinking about.

Lately I have been thinking a lot about feminism and what it really stands for. Basically, feminism is about equality for both genders and I truly believe that it is necessary to treat all genders and sexual orientations equally. Something that really bothers me however is that more than men sometimes it is women who refuse to treat women equally to men and that is just really disappointing. Firstly, you would think that someone of the same gender would be more understanding because they’ve been through the same struggles but sometimes it seems like women want to force other women to go through the same struggles. An example of this that I was thinking about was how most people, even women, would judge a girl going out with a much older and rich man. She would be quickly labelled a “slut”, “whore”, “gold-digger” and worse. But honestly how many people would judge the man? How many people would call him out for dating someone so much younger? No matter how much we try to pretend that the world has changed and women are now treated better the truth is that women are still treated differently from men. And I admit women are different from men but that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t be given the same opportunities as a male would. It is unbearably painful to think that women miss out on so much for no other reason apart from the fact that they are female.

Another thing I have been thinking about is the future. This is my last year at school and I’ll be going to university next year and the thought of it is just scaring the hell out of me. Even though I have spent my life dreaming of the day that I can be independent now that I have the chance to do so, I can’t help but overthink it. Firstly, I’m scared that I won’t make it on my own and that I’m probably going to give up and come back home. Secondly, and this is my biggest fear, is that I will fail. I’m scared that I’m not smart enough for college and that I will do horribly. I did however read a quote that made me feel better about this :

“The scariest moment is always just before you start” – Stephen King

So that’s about all I have really been deeply thinking about. I really hope to be able to post more often. I hope you enjoyed my rant and anxiety! Have a great day and don’t forget to like, follow, share and comment!

Becoming Vegetarian or Vegan

The first post from this blog and I’m already hooked!

vegetarianandvegannutritioncoach

People decide to become Vegetarian or Vegan for many reasons, including health, religion, concerns about animal welfare amongst others. Whatever the reason Vegetarianism has become more appealing and accessible, thanks to the year-round availability of fresh produce, more vegetarian/vegan options, and the growing culinary influence of cultures with largely plant-based diets.

Today according to a Harris Interactive poll commissioned by the Vegetarian Resource Group, a nonprofit organization that disseminates information about vegetarianism six to eight million adults in the United States eat no meat, fish, or poultry. About two million have become vegans, forgoing not only animal flesh but also animal-based products such as milk, cheese, eggs, honey and gelatine as well as the use of products such as silk, fur, leather, wool, cosmetics and soaps derived from animal products.

Traditionally, research into vegetarianism focused mainly on potential nutritional deficiencies, but in recent years, the pendulum has swung the other way, and…

Anxiety

I feel my hands shake

My heart beats faster

But I still can’t breathe

I feel like

I’m running out of air

Every part of me is sweating

My fingers feel numb

My mind doesn’t seem to be working either

My head is spinning

My ears are ringing

And my mouth is dry

Nothing makes sense anymore

Everything is out of control

My Monday post was about anxiety so I thought I would write a poem about what it feels to have anxiety and panic attacks.
