    Hey, guys! I don’t know if it’s just that we are all writers/creative types...maybe our idealism causes us to feel so much, but some of us can have battles with keeping our spirits up. I want to make this a safe place for people to talk about either their battles with their mental health, wether it be past or present, as well as tips they have to overcome! Including daily encouraging quotes and tips that I think might help us all that I see on my Pinterest, online, or hear. We can discuss what works for us or what hasn’t worked for us. And how we can keep continuing to be too strong to be weak!

    Today’s inspirational quote is:

    “Don’t ruin a good today by thinking about a bad yesterday. Let it go”

    I know I’ve had my struggles with letting go of the past and realizing that it doesn’t define me. That I can evolve and be a completely better version of myself than I was then. Sometimes it seems hard to let go of the wounds that happened in those times. And it seems like they go too deep to repair and every dark memory keeps surfacing without relent. BUT I remember that before all that shit got to me, before all the people who told me this or that which hurt my self esteem, or before I felt isolated beyond relief and like I’m lesser than other people...well before any of that shit I was a little girl who used to be very talkative, extroverted, dreamy, and would host TV shows infront of dead TV screen as if someone was watching me back on the other side. I dreamed of being a TV star, a movie star, a beauty queen, and a writer. I let some bad people, bad comments, and bad experiences deter me from following my dreams and hurting my self esteem for the past twenty something years, but now I’m going to move forward.

    And that’s by letting go of the bad stuff that happened in the past. Instead I’m going to focus on the good and the happy version of me that I used to be by building upon that little girl who was extremely confident and wanted to be a star!

    I hope you guys all let go of your bad yesterdays today, too!

    Today’s inspiration for 04.06.2018 is a Jack Sparrow quote (well according to my Pinterest XD):

    “The problem isn’t the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem”

    How many times have we all heard that one before? “It isn’t you or anybody else. It’s your mindset”. Yeah, I know I’ve heard that one two hundered and one times from my mom. But the truth is that they are exactly right. Think of all the people who really accomplished something through their own work and grit. It all came with having a non-defeatist mindset. Whether it be the “I learned a thousand ways NOT to make a light bulb” mindset that kept Thomas Edison from giving up after failing multiple times or the “I’m going to make it happen regardless of what anyone says, because I know I’m talented” mindset of a person like Kanye West who was told he’d never be a rapper and yet now he’s one of the biggest selling artists in the States of all time.

    Denzel Washington said, “Fall seven times, get up eight”

    Let’s see if having that drive to never give up works for us today!
