Mundane Experience

You know when you reach that point of frustration where you just feel like giving up???

That’s where I am at the current time. I try to make sure that I remain humble and take nothing or no one for granted. But it seems like it’s getting harder everyday to push through. But I guess I can try to look on the bright side, at least it’s building character. SHIT I’ve got so much character built I could create another personality!

To be honest, I’m tired of being humble! I want the life of my dreams. I don’t want to work day in and day out just to break even! I want to have the type of life I could look back on and smile just thinking about the experiences I had and people I met.

I’m tired of this mundane mechanical existence.

Sorry this wasn’t so uplifting. But we all have to vent sometime.

If you’re feeling like me, sick and tired of the everyday hustle and bustle; leave a comment.

As always

Not Feeling It

Hope everyone is doing better than me this morning.

I’m just gonna say it…… I’m not feeling it.

I don’t feel like being in anyone’s face today. I really just want school to be over. I’m thankful for the job. I have to keep saying that, because I know how easy it is for your complaints to cancel out your gratitude. But like I stated on previous posts, “I know I was meant for a whole lot more than this.”

In all my years on this earth, I’ve never had a job that I’ve loved let alone liked for more than a month. I always try to figure out whether my reason for not liking it is do to my mental battles or because the job  really isn’t a fit for me. To be honest I could fit in almost anywhere, because I work hard where ever I go. But lately working hard doesn’t give me the same feeling it use to. I use to feel like I accomplished something. But now, all I feel is empty. I know that is due to me working hard for others but never really receiving any kind of promotion or accolades because of my hard work. I’m sure some of you have been there. You know, doing all you can to show you appreciate your job and that you’re grateful to be working. The only problem that I’ve come to realize about this over and over is; when your boss realizes that you need the job, they begin to treat you that way. If you haven’t experienced that type of treatment I pray you never do. That type of treatment is usually void of respect and consumed with their needs. After a while, depending on what kind of person they are, your needs or concerns get canceled out all together. They start to believe what ever they decide, you will be okay with. So they don’t bother to ask you. In many ways it could be considered your fault they’re treating you that way.

I’m sure you may not think it’s your fault, because you’re the one providing the service and doing your job to the best of your ability. But one thing you have to keep in mind, people treat you based on what you show them. Not based on what’s right or wrong. So in retrospect, most people are only doing what their designed to do (take advantage of the weakest link). 

I had way more to say. But I guess I’ll save it for another post.

I hope you have  beautiful, life changing, positive day.

7 Ways to Destress

Have you ever felt like you want to be positive, but there are so many things that happen to you it makes you want to change your mind? I swear that’s me everyday. There are good days and then I have days when I just want to tare my hair out. But then I remember situations are only situations. They’re not meant to last forever. You go through them in order to prepare you for the next big thing you may have to face. So since I’m sure there are those of you who have gone through or are going through a difficult time at the moment. I want to leave with you some of the things I do to get myself out of a funk.


Remind yourself of your accomplishments- Sometimes you have to remind yourself of the things you have accomplished so far, because remembering where you came from will remind you of where you’re going. Besides it makes you feel better.


What are you thankful for- When you remember what you’re thankful for, everything you’re going through seems trivial. Also it keeps you humble.


Future plans- Thinking of future plans when overwhelmed with a situation, helps you remember you are not going to be in that predicament for long. It’s your silver lining.


Remain humble- Being humble is something a lot of people have a hard time being, because they believe it makes you comfortable with going with out. But it’s the opposite, it actually makes you appreciate what you have so that you are able to make room in your life for more.


Purchase a Diffuser- I never realized how mandatory a diffuser was until I got one. I find it to be a great addition to my daily routine. It’s just the right thing for me when I go to bed.

I put a little water and a natural oil of my choice, and it puts me right to sleep. The oils I find relaxing are lavender, eucalyptus, and peppermint. But you would have to find out what works for you.

The one above is the one I really wanted. But I couldn’t wait so I bought mine from another store (I shouldn’t have waited). You may not need this many oils. I just like to have variety.


Listen to sounds that calm you- What I like to do is turn on my Google Play and listen to white noise, rain sounds, or sounds of nature. If you do that plus have your diffuser going with your favorite relaxing sent, you are sure to fall a sleep in no time!


Meditate- What I’ve found with meditating is, it helps you to have a great start to your day. Many people may not have this problem, but I do. What I’m talking about is, needing time to get thoughts together and have an idea and preparedness of what you’re going to possibly deal with in the day. Meditating helps do that for you. It centers you and places a calmness over you.


I hope you found these tips helpful. If you would like more types like this please leave a comment, and I will be sure to give you other types I do for relaxation. Also if there are other things you would like to see on this blog leave a comment.
