Know When to Say No

4505bb32b0e55609f341006538b45913

Don’t be afraid to say yes, and don’t be afraid to say no.

We need to make important decisions in life, even when going with the flow.

Our individual needs, desires, and boundaries are important.

No one can take that away from you and no one has control over you.

Don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself and become assertive in a loving way.

We are individually in control of our own selves. 

So with that, say no to:

Negativity

Hurting others

People and things that drain you

Doing things that don’t feel ‘right’

Hurting the environment

Things that aren’t good for your health and wellbeing 

Taking or destroying other people’s things

Violence

Most importantly, say no to things that take away your happiness.

You do matter.

We all have a choice.

Remember that.

Don’t be afraid to say no.

Monday Morning Motivation

6d07c237e7a6e0a19aafbd9bfcac792fThe weekend has ended and a new week is finally upon us!

*Shrieks* It’s Monday!!

No, I mean that in a positive way.

Everyday is a new beginning, a fresh start, an open door, a blank canvas, an open door…

So many possibilities!

Don’t shriek in terror when your alarm goes off in the morning.

Watch the sun rise, stretch, have a sip of coffee, and go about your day with a smile on your face!

Happy Monday everyone! =)

World of Psyche- Unmotivation

I still have yet to fully grasp what the true meaning of unmotivation; however, I do know that at one point or another it affects us all. Its that overwhelming shadow that weighs over us, causing us to feel so low to where even doing the things we love doesn’t seem appealing at all. And when it hits you, it hits hard.

Everyone goes through this, everyone. I don’t want anyone to believe that they are alone with this. To me, this is an on and off issue. I can’t quite pinpoint what causes me to feel unmotivated other than stress. When I’m stressed and overtired, it makes me really not want to do much of anything. It really affects me when it comes to the fine arts aspect of me. I absolutely love art, and I hate it when I get demotivated or get ‘artist’s block’. 

Unmotivation seems to very well be an aspect of Depression. Regardless, this is something that I know very damn well that this is an obstacle that we can ALL overcome. I believe there are a few things that can be done to help this problem:

  1. Step back from the overall situation to gain some perspective.
  2. Take a break from whatever project(s) you are working on (even if its just a brief one).
  3. Breathe. Always remember to breathe.
  4. The last thing you would ever want to do is to make it worse. Fighting it and beating yourself up is only going to make the problem worse.
  5. Have faith and hope that our motivation and drive can and will come back.

In the end, it all works out, believe it or not. Its ok to feel tired, worn down, depressed, unmotivated. We weren’t born to be or feel perfect. Nor were we created to be happy all the time. Always remember these things: Give yourself some credit and a pat on the back for a job well done with everything you do, Breathe calmly and deeply especially when stressed out, Don’t beat yourself up over something you have no control over, Lastly, always remember to look forward.
