“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”

Thomas A. Edison

That’s basically it!

Don’t give up on your dreams. Keep on fighting. Keep trying and you will be closer to what you want to achieve in life. If you want it, and if it’s worth it, then it probably will not be easy. But when you achieve it… Well… You will probably enjoy it more than you thought you would.

The Versatile Blogger Award

versatile

I have been recently nominated (3 times :D) for the Versatile Blogger Award. Seriously, I can’t even start to thank you for appreciating this piece of my soul I’ve been sharing with you all. It’s nice and kind of incredible to know people remember my posts and possibly like them. 🙂

So… I was nominated by The Girl in Glasses, Dropping the Brick and Hannah Haynes. These bloggers are so special and they deserve so much. *hugs all of them* I am so thankful.

Anyhow, here are the rules!

  • Show the award on your blog.
  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Share 7 facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 15 blogs.
  • Link your nominees’ blogs, and let them know.

FACTS:

  1. I like my middle name, but I dislike people calling me by it. (Possibly because my parents called me that while they were mad with me XD)
  2. I have worn glasses for about 13 years now. I can’t remember having to deal without them.
  3. I am severely afraid of being alone. Of losing my family.
  4. I deactivated my Facebook a month ago and it feels better than I thought it would.
  5. I tried to write a novel once, but I gave up because I thought I wasn’t good enough.
  6. Pizza is my life.
  7. I’ve never been in a relationship before… and I’m afraid. :3

Well… Time to nominate some people!

Bad day.

How can you overcome a bad day? Maybe reading, watching your favorite show, maybe just talking. I posted something about this almost a week ago. Well, today was kind of a bad one for me. I wanted to cry from frustration and just send everything to hell. I felt like a horrible person. I still think I am, actually. It is just nice to know some people disagree with me. Two of my friends made me feel better with their tweets. I was all warm inside.

I guess this is my point with this really short post. Talk about your feelings. Maybe even write about them. Do NOT lock them inside. Trying to hide your feelings is unhealthy, and will damage your self-esteem and your whole life in the process. Let it go, people.

Don’t let the Muggles bring you down. And with Muggles, I mean your brains and how they can make you overthink about everything. I mean, do not ignore what is happening, that is not healthy either, just assume a position where you might not get hurt. Don’t worry, be happy, and stay strong.

How to feel better :)

Hello, there.

Right now, I am writing this blog as I am about to arrive to Uni to take my exam, and thinking about this makes me feel relaxed. This post is dedicated to one of my favorite blogs. You know who you are, dear.

1. Listening to music:
If you feel sad or anxious, all you have to do is listen to your happy playlist on my iPod. (If you don’t have one, make one. You will not regret it.) If I want to relax, I have a nice playlist with the songs that make me feel better, including my favorite artist: Taylor Alison Swift. (Seriously, her songs talk directly to my heart.) Right now I’m listening to Shake it Off 🙂

2. Eating pizza:
Pizza makes everything better. Some of that cheesy goodness just diffuses into my soul and helps me feel complete! My friends agree with me on that matter. We can each eat about a complete pizza all by ourselves. Okay, if you don’t like pizza, just replace it with your favorite food. Eat lots of it with no regret. You only live once, people! Eat your feelings for once!

3. Reading books!
Books are my life. Without them, I wouldn’t be who I am. I live vicariously through them. How do they make me feel better, you might ask. Well, just the smell of a book can make me eternally giddy and relaxed. Apart from that, words on paper just have this power over me. I just have to read them, and learn and live and just read. Read anything: be it motivational books, fictional books, textbooks, anything that makes you happy!

4. Watch TV Shows
Same concept as books, actually.

5. Walking around the neighborhood.
I usually don’t do this, but when I do, I immediately feel the benefits of a great walk. Exercising is fun, and even if I get extremely tired, it makes me happy. That’s especially if I have my family with me. They make fun of me because I have no physical condition… I wish I did, though. Just walk around, run around. You will improve your physical condition and release all that stress.

6. Talking to family and friends.
If by some chance you feel sad, family should be the first you tell. If not, a true friend will listen to you. I usually talk to my mom about anything, and if by some chance she were not available, my cousin is always there for me. Just find someone to talk to. Online friends also help. I have some of them, and I try to help as much as I can.

7. Writing your thoughts down.
Keeping a blog has helped me realize that my mind is more organized now. I can express my thoughts in a better way, and that way I can compartmentalize everything. If I feel sad and I don’t know why, I start writing everything down. That helps.

8. Do whatever you want.
If you want to dance, do so. If you want to talk to yourself, do it. When I was a little girl, I wasn’t afraid of anything. I didn’t care about social conventions. Honestly, that’s when I was happier. When you stop giving a f*** about everyone else, you will be free. Let it go, guys!

9. Just follow your goals, people.
Do everything in order for your life to be the way you want. Do not give up, EVER.

If you have anything else to add, comment it here. I want to know what you think about this, and what you do to be happy.
