A New Start

Well!! Two and half years later and look who decides to start blogging again. So stunned that I remembered my password. For now I am going to use my blog as a diary, just typing up whatever until I get the hang of it again. I would love to find one specific thing to write about each week. Something that interests me and many others. Like exercising maybe? I just need to get a hold of my eating habits I suppose. And I probably need to get myself to put some blood, sweat and tears into things that matter to me, doesn’t matter how small. Especially reading and writing. I think even just opening Blogger again was a good start. So proud! It is definitely a new start :)

I realized that this is my last blog post for Media Studies 3 for the year and felt a sense of relief…but then I asked myself…will I ever blog again? The answer is not yet clear to me but I probably will. Not as often as we had to though.

So I just want to give a shout out to the #Smed11 group. Well done guys, we are basically there!! Thought the time will never come but we worked hard, made good friends and made even better memories. What an awesome year this was, will never forget all the moans and groans and extension requests, or the jokes and stories and the ‘getting out of work’ schemes. Hahaha lovit! What a privilege it was experiencing my final year of study with a group like you.

Now!!! Let’s go get our party and our holiday OOON!!! :D

Of all the forms of courage, the ability to laugh is the most profoundly…

Of all the forms of courage, the ability to laugh is the most profoundly therapeutic. Yes, things can go wrong in life. Yes, there are issues and problems to solve. But we have a choice. We can choose to become pessimistic and not see the value in what we experience, or we can choose to laugh as an admission to the fact we are not perfect and life can get the best of us at times. What a relief to know that no matter how bad things may look, a smile or a rift of laughter can begin to make the circumstances feel better.” – Dr. Gordon Livingston

Definitely!! I live on laughter and positive vibes (with good music playing in the background of course), as this makes everything seem so much easier and worth your while…and more fun. So laugh your ass off whenever and wherever you can. Most importantly, learn to laugh at yourself as well!!

My Hidden Emotions – Sarina Adams

This week I came across this poem, and thought I will share it with you…because once in a while all of us feel like this. Hiding those deep emotions and keeping those deep dark secrets no one knows.

My rough exterior hides my true self; the anxiety, the fear, and the humiliation.
Like my sign the Libra.
It says I’m supposed to keep balance, but really what is good without evil.
That doesn't mean I don't have any feelings which nobody will ever see.
So I shall keep my hidden emotions inside, til the day I find someone whom I can share them with.
Thus the sadness in my heart will continue to grow.
Until one day I can either face-it or run from it.

Have a good one!

The statute of limitations has expired on most of our childhood trauma.

“No matter your past, change is the essence of life. In order to move forward in life we need to learn to live in the present.” – Dr. Gordon Livingston
This is based on the fact that our childhood experiences mould us to who we are today. Letting go of some experiences (bad) are difficult. We connect many memories to the things we do in our daily lives because we are shaped by our childhood and thus repeat what we have learned as a child, or avoid what we have experienced. Certain things have certain meanings to different people because of past experiences; they connect the meaning and feeling to that particular situation. I think this can happen consciously and subconsciously.
We must change our mindset in order to let go of negative past experiences. Even change in behaviour and attitude as well as choices can better our feelings and perceptions towards certain things, as this will help to get over things that bother you…but we must create the willingness and power to do so, because it comes from within.
When walking in the road and you fall into a hole, sometimes you struggle to get out. Next time you walk down that road and you see that same hole, cross the road and go walk on the other side.

NOT about Chord Overstreet

I actually wanted to blog about Chord Overstreet but didn’t want to look like a groupie so I decided not to. All I had to do is post one photo of him and then BOOM!!! Full marks haha! He is literally too hot to survive on this planet. (If you don’t know who he is you’re a loser and must go sit in the corner)

Anyhooo, moving on!! So as I can’t think about anything else to blog about now, I will come back later and continue this post.

Next day…

Okay I am back now with no better idea than I had, except that sushi is the best thing since the birth of Chord Overstreet. So since we are technically already on our weekend, let’s get our sushi and our drink on and freaking enjoy it. Almost like a pre-party, cause we’re almost done guys!!! Walk tall, and say it like you mean it. Peace J

Only bad things happen quickly.

“Only bad things happen quickly, . . . Virtually all the happiness-producing processes in our lives take time, usually a long time: learning new things, changing old behaviors, building satisfying relationships, raising children. This is why patience and determination are among life’s primary virtues. ”
Gordon Livingston

Yeah, and if it’s not happening quickly, it definitely feels like it. Accidentally falling pregnant, that happens quickly right?? :-O haha! I remember when I was in my car accident, that happened super fast, and 2-3 hours later I was booked into the hospital. Now, I am trying to get rich, and that is a good thing ne?...but noooo it’s taking forever.

Seriously, good things are worth enjoying the ride for, which is what makes it so exciting. I know we get impatient, but how you get there is what makes it worth your while to then enjoy. Embrace the bad things and don’t take it to your heart, because there might just be something special coming out of it. So don’t be sad or upset when something bad happens, it’s normally just to make space for the GOOD that is coming your way.
