No matter what, you are important. No matter how much you accomplish today, or any day, know that you can accomplish anything. There are a few things that I want to remind you through your struggles.
If ever you need to remind yourself that you are worthy, try any of these (or any others you might have). Affirmations can be a great coping mechanism for anxiety, depression, or the daily downs.
Are there any affirmations you tell yourself?
While I have been blogging on and off for the past two years or so, I recently realized that I’ve never realized put my mission out there in written form. I also realized that this is a good life practice, to put things out into the world. So I’m putting this out into the world.
My mission in blogging has been ever changing since I started, but something that has always been there is the need to change someone’s point of view. I think the idea of changing the world through other people and voices of people you might not otherwise hear from. I think, in order to change people’s point of views, it’s important to keep holding on to your personal views.
In a nutshell, my mission in doing what I do is to have someone question the systems of oppression that are in place and what they can do to fix it. I think one of the things that I aim to do is educate people on how to be an activist in their communities.
Bullet journaling is slowly becoming a craze among diary-keepers, poetry-writers, and everyone in between in order to keep track of the day’s tasks and accomplishments. I, having journalled in one form or another, thought I would give bullet journaling a try, and so far I LOVE IT! So here are some tips, tricks, and loves I have for my fellow new bullet journalers.
As many of you may know, not only am I a poet, but I’m a gay poet. With that comes many poems about many different girls, whether they are love poems or breakup poems. So here is Dear She, or a poem about all the women I’ve written poems about.
I tell myself I shouldn’t write this
Because that means I’m doomed.
If I write a poem about you,
It means I am head-over-heels.
This means you can- and will-
Break my heart.
And I let you,
Because there’s something about
Putting pieces back together
That makes me realize
Just how much you’re worth it.
While writing this, I realized that I am often told that too much of my poetry is about heartbreak. But if we’re being honest, I think every person experiences some heartbreak, let alone the teenage girl demographic. But I don’t think I wrote this as a pity sort of thing, but rather a healing sort of thing, like a letter to the people that I think I’ve affected in my life.
Also, if you are into this poem, I have my own poetry book published through Amazon! If you are able to, I would really appreciate people buying it, because I worked really hard on it, and think the poetry is worth reading.
