This post is a reblog. Never stop believing in yourself. For you can. You will. End of story. Continue reading “One Hundred and Forty: Never Stop Believing In Yourself (reblog)”
Two years. Two years sounds so long. And so short. It’s been exactly that. Two years. Since I chose to give life a go. Two years that have gone by really fast and really slowly at the same time. Continue reading “One Hundred and Thirty Five: Two Years”
It’s nearing 2 years. Since I promised to give life a go. In the past year we have posted 130 reasons so far. Thank you Tamara, Hadas, Ricky, Dan and Sharon for posting your reasons. My goal for the 19th of October 2019 is to have 250 reason posts. Meaning a reason every 3 days or so. I can’t do that on my own and would love your help getting there. If you are happy to post a reason on my blog- be it just the once, or be it however often you want – like (bi)monthly/(bi)weekly, please be in touch!
The world’s been looking like a really dark place to me recently. I’ll share what I wrote this morning depicting the darkness at the end of this post. Yet somehow it’s not as dark at the moment.
The world hurts at the moment. I’m in tears, feeling really alone- which I pretty much am. Tired of trying and just want a break.
Yet I’m grateful. That I can cry. That I can let myself cry.
It takes only a second. We’ve many moments in life. Each and every moment can be awesome. Thank you Kate for sharing this
It takes only a second to flash a smile
Yet it can make another’s life worthwhile!
It takes only a second to appreciate
That we steal another’s time being late!
It takes only a second to open our heart
Then real kindness we can impart!
It takes only a second to hate
But we all choose our own fate
It takes only a second to forgive
And it becomes so much easier to live …
It takes only a second for the future to become now
Yet all too often we miss it somehow?
It takes only a second to die
And we wont know why …
What can you do to take care of yourself today for – only a second?
So long as there’s life, there’s hope.
123 (I love that number!) Grounding exercises. I often spiral or find myself anywhere but the present. I’ve come across some random/cool exercises that could be useful.
One Hundred and Eighteen. I hate you – don’t leave me. Book reviews anyone? Continue reading “One Hundred and Eighteen: I Hate You – Don’t Leave Me”
I just saw this poem attributed to Dee Groberg. It’s exactly what I needed to hear at this moment in time.
Get up. And win that race. Life is one of tripping. Stumbling. Falling. We can choose, every single moment in time, whether to say in the mud, or whether to get up – and win that race. Continue reading “Ninety Nine: Get up and win that race”
I had a different ninety seventh reason originally – shoes. I just haven’t had the time to write it up. And a ninety eighth reason – some cool stuff I saw. This would probably be the ninety ninth. Wahoo!!!!! I’m really near ONE HUNDRED. Continue reading “Ninety Seven: Stating what I want”
Anything can be turned into art. Ninety Six.
Still unsure how to reblog.

3. Another thing everyone says (and everyone says it because they’ve found it to be true, there’s very little chance you are the singular exception) is that they’ve been able to find beauty in their struggle. What began as a challenge because the impetus for finding their purpose. “Without Voldemort, Harry Potter is a very ordinary boy.”
6. Life is full of second chances. “Samuel Jackson struggled with alcoholism and drug addiction early on in his career. It was so detrimental to his ability to act and function, he was replaced in two different Broadway productions. He tried supporting himself by working as a camera stand-in for Bill Cosby on The Cosby Show and performing in random on-stage productions in New York, but he was never fully able to kick his addiction until he was 41. Literally the day after he left rehab, he started work on Spike Lee’s Jungle Fever. He was 46 when he was cast in Pulp Fiction.”
