Affirmations of the Week!

Affirmations of the Week!

Anytime I feel insecure, anxious, or agitated for no known reason I like to refer back to my positive affirmations and quotes. Doing so helps to remind me just how blessed I am, and helps me to understand that I don’t need to feel anything but happiness and positive vibes. Being happy is within you. It starts with YOU!

Here’s some positive vibes to help get us through another beautiful week!

  • My strength IS greater than any struggle.
  • I am getting stronger everyday.
  • We all deserve a beautiful life.
  • I choose to feel more amazing.
  • STOP comparing your life to others.
  • I am ready to love myself.
  • Small steps are also progress.
  • I release all negativity.
  • I AM becoming the best version of myself.
  • Remind yourself of what you’ve been able to overcome. All the times you felt like you weren’t going to make it through, you proved yourself wrong. You’re more powerful than you think. YOU ARE A WARRIOR.
  • Breath in courage, exhale doubt.
  • I have no much to be grateful for.
  • I put good energy out into the world, knowing I will receive good things in return.
  • Ten steps to protect your Vibe:
    1. LET GO OF THINGS YOU CAN’T CONTROL!
    2. AVOID COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHERS! (main ones I personally struggle with)
    3. Keep faith larger than your fears.
    4. Don’t do anything that doesn’t feel right.
    5. Don’t be afraid to spend time alone.
    6. Avoid gossip and bashing others.
    7. Speak kindly to yourself and others.
    8. Please yourself before trying to please others.
    9. Stay away from people who drain your energy.
    10. Ignore any opinions that don’t enhance your life.
  • Pain is part of growing.
  • worrying and comparing changes nothing.

Enjoy, I hope you all have a great week!

Happy New Year!!

As cliché as it is

I hope that this new year brings you so much joy

Happiness, positivity and overall just a good outcome of the year in general.

I hope that this year is the year that really brings out that you you’ve always wanted

Because you deserve it.

You deserve to be happy

To be ecstatic with life.

To be filled with nothing but happiness, love and peace.

This is your time to shine!

This year is about improving YOU!

Please, be patient

Please, be patient

Bright and beautiful mornings are my absolute favorite!
Waking up to his touch on my freshly shaved legs.
His warm skin against mine, I can’t help the smile across my lips.
I watch him sleep for hours so peacefully.
This beautiful man before me
He loves me to the moon and back.
I know that.
He is for me nobody else
I also know he is himself.
Things I can’t control
Just let them go!
He loves me
would never deceive me.
Forgotten kisses things left unsaid
Would be the only neglect I get.
Coffee is going while you are rolling.
Blunts and coffee a ritual for you and me in the morning.
Moutain’s in the distance
along with the sound of downtown Reno.
Proud of how far we have become
Why do I still feel so numb?
Overcome with a ton left to work on
One day I’m on the next not.
You don’t deserve that no one does.
Not even me.
I’m trying
Desperate to be content.
I want to be your heaven-sent.
I can be kind to you
You never were just the dirt on my shoe.
It wasn’t me, but I’m on a journey
To find who haunts my dreams.
The girl I know I can be
Please,
Be patient
Someday I’ll get it.

Enjoy the skin you’re in because YOU ARE AWESOME

Enjoy the skin you’re in because YOU ARE AWESOME

You are one of a kind! Special in your own light.

Everyone shines just as bright. Each different never alike.

If he or anyone can’t see

Truly how extraordinary you can be

Set them free

Live life carefree

Happy as can be, peacefully

Confident and content

With the flesh the heavens sent

For you and me alone

Our body is our home.

Child Accused for witchcraft and KILLED! A story back in the late 1600s

I’ve been reading this book by Paula Hawkins-Into The Water, and in the book, they talk about a specific lake near a small town in the book they call the “drowning pool,” It all started with a young girl and her grandmother in late 1600, accused of using witchcraft because they used herbs and plants as a form of medicine,
Let me share with you a story about Libby Seeton.

Libby 1679

Yesterday they said tomorrow, so that’s today now. She knows it won’t be long. They’ll come to take her to the water, to swim her. She wants it to come, wills it to come, it cant come soon enough. She’s tired of feeling so dirty, of the itch on her skin. Knows it won’t really help with the sores, putrid now and smelling bad. She needs elderberry, or marigold maybe, she’s not sure what would be best, or wether it’s too late to do anything at all. Aunt May would know, but she’s gone now, swung from a gibbet these eight months past.

Libby likes the water, loves the river though she’s afraid of the deep. It’ll be cold enough to freeze her now, but at least it’ll take the insects from her skin. They shaved her when they first arrested her, but the hair’s grown back a bit now, and there are things crawling everywhere, burrowing into her, she feels them in her ears, at the corners of her eyes and in between her legs. She scratches until she bleeds. It’ll be good to have all that washed away, the smell of the blood, of herself.

They come in the morning. Two men, young, rough-handed, rough-mouthed, she’s felt their fists before. No more though, they’re careful about that, because they heard what the man said, the one who saw her in the forest, her legs spread and the Devil between them. They laugh and slap, but they’re afraid of her, too, and in any case, she’s not much to look at these days.

She wonders, will he be there ti watch her, and what will he think? He thought her beautiful once, but now her teeth are rotting, and her skin is mottles blue and purple as though she were half dead already. They take her to the Beckford, where the river turns sharp around the cliff and then runs slow and deep. This is where she’ll swim.

It is autumn, a cold wind blowing, but the sun is bright and so she feels ashamed, stripped there in the bright light before all the men and women of the village. She thinks she can hear them gasp, in horror or surprise, at what’s become of lovely Libby Seeton.

She’s bound with ropes thick and rough enough to bring bright, fresh blood to her wrists. Just her arms. Legs left free. Then they tie a rope around her waist, so that should she sink, they can bring her back again.

When they take her to the river’s edge, she turns and looks for him. The children scream then, thinking she’s turning the curse on them, and the men push her into the water. The cold takes all of her breath. One of the men has a pole and he shoves it at her back, pressing her on and on and on until she cannot stand. She slips down into the water.

She sinks.

The cold is so shocking that she forgets where she is. She opens her mouth to gasp and sucks in black water, she starts to choke, she struggles, she kicks with her legs, but she’s disoriented, no longer feels the riverbed beneath her feet. The rope pulls hard at her, biting into her waist, ripping her skin. When they drag her into the bank, she is crying.

“Again!”

Someone is calling for a second ordeal.

“She sank!” a women’s voice cries. “She’s no witch, she’s just a child.”

“Again! Again!”

The men bind her again for the second ordeal. Different this time: left thumb to right toe, right thumb to left. The rope around her waist. This time they carry her into the water.

“Please,” she starts to beg, because she’s not sure that she can face it again, the blackness and the cold. She wants to go back to a home that no longer exists, to a time when she and her aunt sat in front of the fire and told stories to each other. She wants to be in her bed in their cottage, she wants to be little again, to breathe in woodsmoke and rose and the sweet warmth of her aunt’s skin.

“Please.”

She sinks. By the time they drag her out the second time, her lips are the blue of a bruise, and her breath is gone for good.

Into The Water by Paula Hawkins

This was just a little piece of the book I wanted to share with you guys that I thought was fascinating the way she wrote her story so vividly. Love love loved this I hope you guys have an awesome day!!

Self-Confidence/Self-Esteem

Self-Confidence/Self-Esteem

Lately my minds a mess. Full of questions I guess?

How confident can one girl be?

In her own skin… It tingles as the cradled heart sings.

I don’t dress to the tune of others opinions anymore.

The melody within me shifted streams, she flows so gently.

All the positive vibes i’ve never felt so alive.

I’ve been dealing with MAJOR self-esteem problems lately. Having confidence in yourself is a really difficult process that a lot of people go through. I have made progress slowly but surely I will be able to enjoy the skin Im in. You can never expect to make others happy if you aren’t happy with YOU first!

Book That Has Helped Me Tremendously

Reading the first couple chapters of this book really opened my eyes on what confidence truly means, and how important it is to be nice to your self because YOU are always listening! I haven’t finished yet and im excited to document my progress through my blog.

Stay tuned for My self-confidence workbook updates!!

Hope you Enjoy! Check out my cheesy new website! Have an Awesome day!
