body positivity 

it doesn’t always happen for me

but when it does

i have to grab it with all my life

so when i don’t have it

i have encouraging memories to aspire for.


Positivity Friday: 9 (Late)

I’ve been over loaded with things of late that I have no idea why my head is still on. Last weekend I was on vacation and then started up on classes last Wednesday. So without further ado I’m going to give you twice the gratitude.

The world is so much bigger than your brain, stop living inside your head. *and original*

What I like about this quote is that sometimes I don’t remember that I have to get out of my books and actually talk to people. I’m much more comfortable studying alone and watching people from a far. It’s one of my favorite things about my partner. We both aren’t very good at the whole “people” thing but what we are good at is pushing each other to try and be good at the “people” thing.

Gratitude Journal:

  1.  Having a wonderful walk with my niece.
  2. Spending time with my beautiful Godson.
  3. Spending time at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival.
  4. Spending lots of time with my Partner.
  6. Math tutoring with my dad going well. (Which has never gone well before.)

“She was free in her wildness. She was a wanderess, a drop of free water. She belonged to no man and no city.” – Roman Payne

Positivity Friday’s:3

“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or objects.” – Albert Einstein

This week my professor also said something similar, “goal-setting=success.”  So this week I’m very motivated by setting and reevaluating my goals. I will be a successful and achieve when even everyone doubts me.


1. Laughing at school.

2. A really great dinner with my partner and two friends.

3. Passing my summer course.

Positivity Fridays:2

Before I release the quote this Friday to your ever watchful eyes I want you to have a snippet of background. I am in love with the Cinema. It is the most magical place in the human created world that I could possible thing of. There are stories, adventures, fear, love, hate, and so much more being unloaded into our conscious awareness. It’s like a warm hug on a cold snow covered day. It’s the tickle of a warm macchiato as it runs down your throat. It is something, everything, and nothing at all.

For a period of time the commercials that play before the previews play before the movie plays was a Sprite commercial. Sprite for a while knew exactly what to say and do to make me crave Sprite. Drake was the artist that was advertising for them and this lyric hit me like a major league pitch square into the face.

One last thing: Visualize yourself successful and you will be successful!

Last name ever
First name greatest
Like a sprained ankle boy I ain’t nothing to play with. – Forever by Drake

Gratitude Journal:

1. Having the joy of laughing with a spectacular person.

2. A really great grade on a test.

3. Getting my vacation request for a Seattle Trip approved!

Positivity Fridays

I do not plan on spending much, if any, time on the blog over the weekends although that may end up changing. As I’m new to the experience of trying to actual set up, run, and promote this blog I’m not entirely sure as to what I may want to do with it just yet.

Fridays I do have a plan for. I want to spend it on positivity only. The thing about living with Suicidal Ideation stemming from multiple disorders is that you have a constant battle going on within your head and heart. I am trying to do a few things to counter this consistent battle.

I am going to try and start each Friday out with a quote that I am trying to use to remind myself to stay on the up an up. Then I’m just going to give three things I’m grateful for from the past week. I may or may not go into detail on those three things. However, this is pretty much where I’m at with Friday’s so far.

Here we go!

“When one door is closed, don’t you know that many more are open”
― Bob Marley

Gratitude Journal:

1. Starting my first really great week of summer classes! -Cognitive Psychology!

2. Getting my car fixed.

3. Having a phone conversation with my Godson.
