In the past I’ve reported the contents of my Good Things Jar. The first time I wrote about it was January 2015. Any time there is something good, it gets written onto a scrap of paper and tossed into the jar. Back then, Tara was living with me and we both contributed. We had intended a tradition of reviewing the good things to start off our Januarys, but we skipped a couple years, then Tara moved away for college.

The more curious you are about life, the more confused you will be

This is how human brain functions! And that’s great thing to have because the urge to remove that confusion will let you be one step closer to enhance your knowledge, to see things more profoundly, to understand life and things related to life in a better way.

this letter is for a number of unknown people, a letter of gratitude because I didn’t had the chance to say a big thank you to these people who probably has no idea about my existence nor do I know anything about them except

Spending most of my time alone and investing into hobbies that made me happy helped me stop over-planning for a future I ultimately can’t control

Being completely alone made me more mindful of how I was spending my time day to day, so I chose to explore my interests instead of ruminating over what my life should look like even a year from now. I found a healthy balance between living in the moment and planning. I chose to focus more on short-term plans rather than long-term. I continued to set goals, but let go of expectations and worry. I got comfortable with not knowing and changing direction. I decided that I want to be as present as possible because I love life too much to live in the past or the future. I just want to make sure I’m content in this moment. And I trust myself. I trust that I’ll figure it out as long as I’m learning about myself and choosing happiness everyday.

While an unrealistic optimist can be somewhat annoying when you think their bright future simply can’t eventuate, they are still likely to improve your day, just by being there

Given the unfortunate lack of rental optimists available to us at present (perhaps in a Level 3 scenario?), our bubble members are just going to have to harness whatever proportion of optimism we possess, brush up on our personal optimism skills, and call our optimists on a regular basis for a good dose of brightness.

Creative 4 The Mind

I don’t usually talk about my mental health but I’ve always kept it in and now that I’ve created this blog I can actually start to tell someone. In the end i just want to be happy and help others in my situations.

Mental health is something that occurs in most peoples lives at least once in their lifetime. In these times now we are more open about mental health and more aware of it which is good that because when I was younger I didn’t really understand why I was feeling sad and down and now I am more aware and i can understand how to cope with it.

If I was to write everything going on in my head right now, I really wouldn’t know where to start. I created this blog to get thoughts off my mind and to explain my feelings and how i got to…

Another End of the World is Possible

You can read the whole article on Holly’s website. And here’s a link to an interview of her on Last Born in the Wilderness.

People will judge you anyway — so do whatever makes you happy

People will judge you anyway. So, do whatever makes you happy. Live your life as it’s your last. Let disappointment be the wind that pushes you up.

Above all, disappointments are a temporary bump on the road. It will be difficult as you travel through life.

But, you will be fearless and brave at the end. Think of it as a challenge. You were given that disappointment because you can handle it.
