“Even when you feel miserable inside, make a point to smile and go through the motions -people will positively interact with you and pick you up. Same applies to fitness: you must go through the motion when you feel like quitting -whenever you do something good for you, you will reap the benefits of strong health esteem.”—Jackie Warner (via fitnesstreats)
Onder ons zijn veel iPhone gebruikers, wat natuurlijk geweldig is, maar halen we wel het uiterste uit ons dure toestel? Wij hebben voor jou een top 10 van apps samen gesteld. Apps die niet echt in de schijnwerpers staan maar wel je phone net even naar een nieuw niveau’tje tillen.
Running can be used as a tool for weight loss, no matter your goals or your current conditioning. The speed that you start out jogging or walking depends wholly on your beginning fitness level, but will likely increase with time, endurance and practice. Either way, lacing up your running shoes…
I often see posts on here where people are fed up with being disappointed by others and vow never to confide anything in anyone again, as a way to keep from being hurt.
While I FULLY understand that feeling and have certainly confided it in high school journals, it now deeply upsets me to hear… because shutting everyone out is never the answer.
Whether we like it or not, we need others. We want connection. We crave companionship. We are human.
I don’t think there is anything so beautiful as two people sharing in open, honest communication, their doubts, fears and especially their happiness.
I once read in an Eckart Tolle book that comedy is worthwhile because it often brings to light the folly of human existence. Comedy is about truth. It’s the stripping down of everything you experience on a daily basis and sharing it with others in a succinct, truthful way. I mean, if my admitting that I scrape the butter off the sides of microwave popcorn bags makes someone else laugh and say, “OMG I DO THAT TOO!” then I have accomplished exactly what I set out to do: to create connection. And giggles. That’s all I’m really after, here.
Sometimes you need to be alone. Sometimes you need to grieve over things. Grief comes in many forms. You can actually experience the stages of grief after getting a bad “too short” haircut. Sounds silly, but it’s true. It is a loss. Not the same as losing a parent, obviously, but a loss nonetheless, and the magnitude of suffering will be proportional to the importance of the loss as it relates to YOU specifically.
I believe, however, that communicating with others will always be worthwhile, if only eventually. So, take your time away, but strive to never fully cut people off. Often, just hearing a relatable story from someone else can help alleviate our own pain sooner. The suggestion that the pain WILL pass is sometimes one that doesn’t even occur to us. Real pain feels infinite. “When will it ever go away?! Will it? Am I going to feel like this forever?” - expressing these fears to someone else can be a step in overcoming them.
More to the point, we can’t rely on others for our own happiness. I watch people in my family do it all the time, and it only leads to their own unhappiness, while the person causing it remains ignorant of their feelings. I once witnessed a family member saying, “I did him a huge favor and if the first words out of his mouth next time I see him aren’t ‘thank you’ I’m gonna be PISSED.”
“Joey never met a bike that he didn’t wanna ride. And I never met a Toby that I didn’t like. Scotty like all of the books that I recommended and even if he didn’t I wouldn’t be offended.”— Kimya Dawson - Tire Swing (Juno)
On one hand, I feel very old-fashioned, conservative, and wholesome. I love traditions; I get excited for them and all-out festive. I feel community and family-centered. I feel most at home in rural areas and small towns, but to some degree in picturesque suburban areas.
"…will you continue your journey without me?", she whispered to her disheartened self as she watched him drive off into the distance. Little did she know she was about to begin her own journey, travelling in an opposite direction until they meet again in a place called "Destiny", where their journeys will melt together for the purpose called "God’s glory". The Beginning.
“My friend, I am not what I seem. Seeming is but a garment I wear – a care-woven garment that protects me from thy questionings and thee from my negligence.
The ‘I’ in me, my friend, dwells in the house of silence, and therein it shall remain forever more, unperceived, unapproachable.”—Khalil Gibran. Brilliant.
“People confuse originality with a desperate need to be different there for creating horrible random pieces that have no real inspiration or design concepts or real talent or complicated processes.”—Koolo (commented on the article)
