reasons to get out of bed: to get back in again.
sometimes the way my bed won't let me leave is not even fun anymore. it's not about feeling comfortable or still being tired. it feels like sinking deeper and deeper into the warm and sticky ocean, until i loose myself completely in it and forget everything i had planned for the day. sometimes it softly wispers into my ears and tells me that there is no need to get up. not really. i'm in a serious love-hate-relationship with my bed. i love it when i go to sleep and i hate it when i'm unable to leave it in the morning. it makes me stay and feel bad about it. it makes my head dull. it tells me it will make my sadness go away, but then it only numbs it for a while and makes it worse afterwards. it lets everything out there seem scary and overwhelming. so i stay. although i know that getting up seems only exhausting during the process. as soon as i i'm up, doing stuff and seeing people i love, it usually wears off. but there are these day where getting there just seems impossible.
i'm lying in bed as i'm typing this. my alarm went off over an hour ago. ⏰
Just about a year ago I came home from a weekend out of town to my place completely ransacked. I walked in and was in complete shock.. that shit took a huge toll on my mental state and honestly I was barley holding on. I kept myself occupied by going to shows all around the state and partying my sorrows and anger away. It’s wild how much you can discover about yourself when you lose everything. I was hanging with the wrong crowds and wasn’t living a honest lifestyle. Now in present day I’m honestly really proud of myself for how far I’ve come in a short amount of time. I moved away from the bs and transferred schools. I found the gym again and put my all into it. I have a 4.0 as of right now and have 2 jobs. I just dropped my first t-shirt and my modeling career is looking up ! I’m not here bragging or anything, just saying that shit happens, but the real ones bounce back. Sitting around and sulking won’t get you anywhere. Things will always get better if you live right and spread positivity even when it’s hard. Sometimes you just have to put your head down and get shit done. That’s my rant, I hope all of you are grinding hard and unlocking your full potential as well. 🔥🔥🔥Shout out to @themichaeldowns for this epic shot 🔥🔥🔥
I found myself unknowingly dwelling over people's success and TO BE HONEST EVERYONE KNOWS THEY SHOULDNT COMPARE JOURNIES BUT SOMETIMES YOU CANT HELP IT. I know WHAT to do but I didn't know what exactly was the problem. Enough spoiling- peep the video on my YT CHANNEL & TAG ME IN THE COMMENT SECTION WHEN YOURE DONE. 💖💖💖✅ #youtube#envy#rant#emjaymendez
“Self care is not always lush bath bombs and $20 face masks.” I have been told that nurses are infamous for being great at taking care of others and awful at taking care of themselves. The rush of adrenaline and lists of tasks to do makes it difficult to fully relax even between shifts. Well, I am working extra shifts this Thanksgiving week and today was my only day off. Waking up in the morning and thinking aloud, I wondered what I should use my one day off for... errands, the forever neglected “working out”, etc? But my boyfriend reminded me that it’s OK if I find that I don’t do anything at all today. We all need time to just relax, and we don’t have to fill every single day with to-do lists to make ourselves feel productive. I took this to heart and spent the day doing one of my favorite introverted activities: reading a book by the window with some tea, and taking a cat nap while the sun shined its warmth on me. The yoga mat still has not been used, and that’s OK... maybe later, or another day. We shouldn’t feel guilty about how we choose to spend our time. Yoga is great, and to me... yoga isn’t about a pose and how you look, it’s about movement and how you feel. Self care doesn’t have to be just for people who have the economic means and leisurely time to indulge in face masks and health crazes, or who look good in yoga pants, and it shouldn’t be made into a commercialized business and considered a luxury. Self care is for everyone; it can be free, innate, and independent. ❁ #selfcare#relax#read#rant#tea#nap#yoga
You know how you feel when teenagers call you “mam” or “sir” and you freak out (because, common! Even if I was 85 that would make me feel old AF!) well let’s just imagine puppies feel the same way alright? #rant#puppies#letsbehonest
🤬RANT ALERT: PLEASE READ😤!! In light of all the “body positivity” posts which I totally get - it’s awesome to feel good in your own skin, and I would always advocate that people spend less time worrying about their appearance and more time loving what they have, and focus on how all body shape, sizes and abilities have the powerful ability to do wonderful amounts of good and feel fabulous
BUT a remark that was made to me really pi**ed me off, that surely this movement wasn’t for people like me who have “Thin Privilege”....WTF?! 😡
So, Why do we assume people have their shit sorted and are happy all the time because of their size?!? How stupidly reductionist and narcissistic is this?! There is NO privilege in being thin, and in fact having a body fat % that’s too low, or being clinically underweight, is actually extremely bad for your physical health, with consequences to bone density increasing risk of fractures, fertility probs and risk of certain cancers. But still the belief this will make you magically happy and all your shit will be sorted surrounds us...and it’s assumptions like this which fuel pro-anorexic sites that encourage those with life threatening illnesses to continue down the path of destruction and hinder recovery
Why can’t we break away from this warped idea that body shape, or weight, reflects life satisfaction, and that by being “thinner” it will end all problems. I can assure you your life will not magically be filled with rainbows🌈 and unicorns 🦄
Remind yourself of the fact that body shape and metabolism are an amazing result of genetics, physiology, environment and behaviours. So this apparent “thin ideal” can be a lottery to some extent
Look at the incredible functions your body carries out; protecting you from disease and danger. We have bodies and minds that have broken world records, pushed the boundaries of science and technology
There should be none of this “thin privilege” shite. No fat shaming, No body positivity (who’s 100% positive all the time?!). Just body diversity, and body acceptance, of bodies that grow and change, and are capable of continuous creation and creativity
That is all
