Right Now Breathe out Breathe all turbulent air out And stay calm It's gonna be pretty hard But manage if you can to let troubled emotions down You can overcome this Last Saturday, I lost a project (an article) that I had been writing since December 28 as my Evernote crashed because my phone tripped off. This article was a brainchild of about 3,000 words, all from my head, no major resource that could get me back to a point that I could say I'll continue from; no backups because it's the Evernote that has been securing my stuff for about 3 years; those who use it know it instantly backs up everything on cloud. Three weeks of intense thinking & hard work (about 3,000 words) all vanished in a split second, trust me that feeling is like losing a loved one. I 'nearly' broke down but I recalled I was a Stoic (a certified one ๐Ÿ˜Š) and that my reaction towards this event was going to make the difference, whether I'd drown in reactive emotions or I'll stay calm to seek a possible solution. I did the latter but it wasn't in anyway easy. I intensely seeked solutions to recover the project to cut the long story, after long I was able to and I felt great ease. I didn't only recover the project, but I learned new things (that can be of help next time) along the line. To me, it was similar to how Edison lost his whole lab to fire at almost 70 but still recovered excellently because he didn't get bogged down with sorrow and worries. How we react to event really matter, it could be the determining factor between lose or win. Right now Stay calm View the situation indifferently We're 'largely' in control of our now And totally in control of our reaction Be in the moment, it's never easy But try, stay calm and react in a way that'll land you a positive or at least a neutral outcome.

#Repost @anonmomhappyhour ใƒปใƒปใƒป This is your friendly neighborhood people pleaser here to tell you that boundaries are fucking important. They're not rude. They're not offensive. They're not selfish. They're not here to ruin lives. Boundaries exist to protect everyone. Imagine if you never set any boundaries and just gave from an empty cup all the damn time. First off: your gifts would be subpar from exhaustion Second: you'd be miserable. So set some fucking boundaries y'all + recognize your own needs are important too. . . . . . . . . . . #podcast #podcaster #girlpower #mindset #mentalhealth #nonmom #celebratingwomen #womeninspiringwomen #womenempowerment #spoonie #mentalhealthawareness #survivor #mindsetiseverything #linkinbio #laughter #laughteristhebestmedicine #independentartist #podernfamily #ladypodsquad #bearealasshuman #radiopublic

Anxiety zaps the energy needed for today. It suppresses the power to carry on. Yet in Christ there is hope. #anxiety #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness
As I lie hear on the verge of tears I think how easy it would be to numb the pain... But I won't these helped me enough now I need to find the strength within TLDR- For a year I was trapped in my own mind. These both saved and destroyed my life.. Been avoidant to post on here Avoidant to socialize Avoidant to be part of this world So I did what I do best in this scenario I looked for excuses to remain in my room secluded from everyone. Flipped my room upside down and cleaned the hell out of it... At least it's clean but I found these. My old meds. There used to be more I remember a time having 4 or 5 constant prescriptions sleep aids, anti anxiety mood stabilizers whatever the fuck I could.take to.make myself feel better it didn't matter just anything to numb the pain... #medication #prescription #trapped #mind #mentalhealthmatters #depression #anxiety #mentalhealth #selfcare #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #motivation #wellness #mindfulness #life #ptsd #bipolar #inspiration #mentalhealthrecovery #endthestigma #positivity #stress #suicide #meditation #mentalhealthwarrior #vlog #meditation #health #gratitude #breakthestigma

Days 10 and 11 of my gratitude challenge. Okay, so Iโ€™m really bad at getting things on here when they need to be. Yesterday, I was grateful for a wonderful new beginning. I am back on the beach for the summer, and I couldnโ€™t be happier. Today, I am grateful for this amazing podcast #sawbones ! This lovely couple is pure magic. I adore learning about accurate medical phenomena and this podcast does not disappoint while continuing to be hilarious. #30daygratitudechallenge #gratitude #happiness #mentalhealthawareness #depression #anxiety #sawbones #newbeginnings

From โ€œThe Futureโ€ ๐Ÿ“– by Neil Hilborn The struggle is continuous. The striving never ends. Times can be tough. No one will save you. Iโ€™ve cried myself to sleep and rotted away in my room alone. Many many times throughout the years, I wanted it over. The demons chased me to the edge of hell, it seems like. The rain never stops completely. But it does keep you alive. And the only option is to survive-and keep surviving. Be strong until itโ€™s time for you to be happy again. And if youโ€™re going through hell, keep going. ๐Ÿ”ฅ Please. #writersofinstagram #quotestoliveby #quotestagram #inspiration #blogger #artistsoninstagram #changetheworld #loneliness #luminosity #striving #stayalive #fightingdemons #mentalhealthawareness #bookstagram #activism #photography #spiritualawakening #spirituality #embody #enlightenment #letitgo #astronomy #wakeupworld #suicideprevention #suicideisnottheanswer

Cruise day number one has been an absolute blast! Dinner was divine, touring the ship has been a treat, and no seasickness to report! Canโ€™t wait for tomorrow - our first full day at sea!!
RESILIENCE (ri-zil-yuh ns) โ€”noun: 1. the power or ability to return to the original form, position, etc., after being bent, compressed, or stretched; elasticity. 2. ability to recover readily from illness, depression, adversity, or the like; buoyancy. . What Iโ€™m most proud of accomplishing in my life definitely wouldnโ€™t be celebrated as an achievement by โ€œnormalโ€ standards. Over the past 4-5 years of being extremely injured & unwell, I was barely able to get out of bed & shower most days... therefore kicking โ€˜life goalsโ€™ (by societyโ€™s standards) wasnโ€™t exactly possible for a very long time. So what is the the ONE THING I am the most proud of achieving during this difficult time? . I. Kept. Going. . It sounds so simple, but itโ€™s actually the most difficult thing in the world to do. And I see all of you doing exactly this day-in, day-out. You all have a badass resilience that inspires me daily. . Having a chronic illness builds a strength in you that transforms into a fire burning bright: propelling you forward. . Even when you feel like all hope is lost. Even when it seems like there are no answers to be found & no end in sight to the relentless pain caused by your condition. . Resilience becomes a fire that blazes brighter than the illness inferno causing utter chaos around us. Despite the destructive nature of chronic illness & pain that engulfs us externally... the fire within is constructive: because it keeps us going. . I see you. I see all of you. I see your struggles, your ups & downs. I speak with many of you each day. I see your fire within. . Now, I don't know what's ahead, but I do know that both you & I will be ok no matter what... because we have resilience, something inherent & necessary for living with a chronic illness. . Our strength is forged in the flames around us & we keep going because our resilience burns bright within us. . Consider this your pep talk for the rest of the week ahead my chronic badasses. . ๐Ÿ“ท: Resilience necklace by @jengotch , the badass mental health advocate & founder of @shopbando
My mom asked if I was wearing pants in this photo, sheโ€™s the best, but no, sorry mom, no pants; just lots of bitchy sass and lots of assssscidosis, ketoacidosis. Thatโ€™s right Iโ€™ve got diabetes.

Earl grey sea breeze
On the way down 5400m above sea level. After crossing 5500. Just up the road. About 70k into my 222k event. The air was thin, the air was cold. The previous night the moonlight in the sky against the Himalayas was one of the most majestic things I have ever seen. I absolutely love running these crazy ultra distances, away from everything, all the hustle and bustle. Just me and the world. Nature, tranquility, just amazing. Another reason why I do what I do... What's one of the most isolated places you have ran?
To say Dr. Martin Luther King has had an impact of my life would be an incredible understatement. His wisdom first reached my heart when I was a young child growing up in a neighborhood where I was not only a minority, but in a small East Texas country town where racism was still a โ€œthingโ€ in more ways than one. Most of the hate and judgement about my choice of friends that didnโ€™t look like me came from adults at that time and I remember being very confused about why what we were being taught in โ€œhistoryโ€ class was actually a partial reality I was living in. I remember telling adults that the words they would use to refer to me and my friends werenโ€™t nice. I remember standing up for myself and other kids as I was beat up on the playground time and time again only to realize that hiding inside during recess with my teacher wasnโ€™t going to bring about change. Because of teachers like Dr. King I can say thank you for many of the hardships in my life that have required me to look far beyond the circumstance and dig out the silver lining with compassion. Dr. King continues to teach me many, many things. Including, how to experience the depth of Godโ€™s love when we respond to hate with love and compassion. I am forever thankful for this Angel. God bless you always Dr. King! โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‘‘
I saw the strongest person I know break down the other day and it reminded me that even the strongest people need to cry sometimes. So do me a favor and reach out to your strong friends today, you never know how your text might just change their day. Mental health is just as important as physical health and thatโ€™s why I stand behind everything the movement @justinbmoreno and the other guys at @makesureyourfriendsareokay stand behind because they starting a conversation about a conversation MAKE SURE YOUR FRIENDS ARE OKAY! Thanks friends ๐Ÿ’œ know that my line is always open if you need a friend! #makesureyourfriendsareokay #mentalhealth #yesigotslideswithsockson #keepyourheadup #motivationalmonday #msyfao #mentalhealthawareness

One of the very first things I did when I setup my โ€œA Fit Mindโ€ pages at the end of last year was create and define these values. I like to remind myself of these every couple of days when Iโ€™m posting content, sharing articles or just coming up with ideas for what Iโ€™d like to do with this going forward. ..Lots of exciting things to come!

#REDJanuary : Day 18 - Walking, Walking and more Walking! ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ Another day off for me today. Iโ€™ve started the day with a walk out in the fresh air. Itโ€™s such a great way to start the day - do not underestimate the effect fresh air and a nice walk can have on your mind! This afternoon I am meeting with my friend Jane to walk the dogs... so lots more walking, lots of taking and lots of fresh air planned for today! ๐ŸŒฒ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿพ #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #walking #walks #nature #lovenature #outdoors #lovetheoutdoors #poole #bournemouth #dorset #gay #gayman #gayuk #selfie # instagay #freshair #healthymind #health #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #talking #dogwalk #wellbeing #selfcare #mentalhealthmatters #mind #man #nomanisanisland

#REDJanuary : Day 15 โ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ This month I am supporting #REDJanuary by being active everyday to promote the benefits it can have on your mental health. Over the last few weeks and months I have learnt first hand the amazing support available from Dorset Mind.

#REDJanuary : Day 16 - Evening Run ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ โ™ฅ๏ธ I finished today strong with a fairly easy-going run. With going back to work recently I had taken today off to allow myself and my body to recover so have not done a huge amount by my high standards. Itโ€™s important to rest when you need to, but I also know what is good for my mind... and what is good for my mind is to finish the day with a short run. I prefer to run either early in the morning or later in the evening because these are the times of day when I struggle the most mentally. Running is a form of therapy for me.. it allows me to unwind, let go, and burn off any negative energy. I always feel so much better after a run - even the shorter ones. Today my mind completely drifted off and has inspired me to write something this evening. Itโ€™s amazing how your mind can drift off in to the strangest places. Running/Exercise can do that - it can inspire creativity and deeper thinking as well as being a good distraction from the stresses of day-to-day life! I am now going to start work on writing.. I have to be honest Iโ€™m a little bit apprehensive about this one but Iโ€™m going to do it anyway! ๐Ÿ“ #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #run #strava #stravarun #running #runnersofinstagram #loverunning #loverun #gayuk #healthymind #mind #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #gayman #gay #exercise #exercisemotivation #blogger #selfie #stress #stressrelief #anxiety #goals #runtoinspire #runningman

#REDJanuary : Day 15 - Pier to Pier Cycle ๐ŸŒŠ ๐Ÿšฒ ๐Ÿšฒ Tonight I met Craig to join him for his daily south coastal cycle between the two piers between from #bournemouth to #Boscombe here in #dorset . I met Craig a couple of weeks ago on a walk organised by Dorset Mind to support the Red January initiative. Craig opened up to me about his own mental health struggles and now it has inspired him to now work for a charity very personal to him and his own journey. It was a privilege to meet him and join him again this evening. Itโ€™s great that a good cause is able to bring people closer together!

#REDJanuary : Day 14 - Swimming ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ I have posted previously about how therapeutic I find swimming and how it improves my mental health. To me itโ€™s a form of meditation - a way to de-stress and let any anxious thoughts drift away in the water. By focussing solely on breathing and counting it puts my at times, overactive mind at ease. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ I LOVE swimming and either before or after a day at work I canโ€™t think of a better way to unwind ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’š #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #stress #stressrelief #swim #swimming #loveswimming #swimtherapy #therapy #meditation #mindfulness #active #activity #apple #applewatch #activitytracker #gymselfie #healthylifestyle #healthymind #health #wellbeing #fitness #fitnessmotivation #exercise #goals #exercisemotivation #exercisegoals #swimmer #swimworkout

#REDJanuary : Day 13 - Badminton ๐Ÿธ โ™ฅ๏ธ Had one hell of a workout this afternoon in a very competitive game of #badminton . Going to be sore tomorrow but had an awesome time. What I love about RED January this year is itโ€™s about being #active - there are so many ways you can stay active and so many different things you can enjoy. I encourage people to try something new.. you never know there may be an undiscovered hobby or passion waiting to be unlocked.

#RU2C So I ran my way to 100k this Christmas in support of the amazing โ€œRun Up To Christmasโ€ campaign. I pledged to run 100km between 1st and 24th December to raise money for Mind. As you will all know I am extremely passionate about the benefits exercise (and in my case #running ) has on your mental health. ๐Ÿง  Looking back on the past few months, I am very proud to say I was able to do it ... and this beautiful medal arrived in the post for me today! I will be adding it to a collection of other running medals, but this one is extra special to me because it shows just how far Iโ€™ve come! ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ ๐Ÿ’š #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #run #runnersofinstagram #stravarun #runningmotivation #runner #medal #appreciationpost #appreciatewhatyouhave #motivation #grateful #medal #healthymind #healthylifestyle #healthy #healthyliving #healthylife #loverunning #lovetorun
