I have happened across what I can only describe as a “critical” analysis of my ‘trade mark’ quote-
Smile…It wont hurt you
I say “critical” but really I’m quite fond of it. The comment reads as follows:
Smile, cry, scowl, it does not matter. Feel what you must feel in the darkest of nights and the brightest of days because darkness helps us appreciate the light.
I would give comprehensive credit to the author of the comment but I’m unsure whether he would like that. This blog has always been anonymous and I would like it to remain that way. If he reads this, He’ll know his own words. Thank you.
They mean a lot to me, not only for their origins but for their meanings too. I have no arguments against them and I believe rather than opposing my quote, they give it new depth. The comment highlights the importants of not repressing any emotion you may have. No matter the intensity, you should embrace any and all feelings you may have at all times. Never be afraid to feel. Emotions are one of the fundamental characteristics of being human. If you squash and ignore them, you are only ignoring your humanity. For a person that for a long time has tried to do the above, I know I will definitely be taking the advice on board. I plead you all (If you don’t already) do the same. For the sake of health and happiness.
But remember to still,
Smile…It wont hurt you 🙂
In roughly an hour my hair will be gone.
Not all of it but a good majority.
Let me explain. About three years ago I discovered The Little Princess Trust. They are a charity who uses real hair to make wigs for children who have experienced hair loss. Be that due to chemotherapy treatment because of cancer, or alopecia. I loved the idea and wanted to help so for the past three years I’ve let my hair grow. It now falls to about my waist and I love it. I’m both excited and terrified at the same time to cut it off.Over the years I’ve become so used to having long hair that it seems so strange to think that it will soon be gone. I’m not a big fan of change and its a big challenge for me. But if we’re being honest (and I always try to be here) I don’t need it. It doesn’t promote my health, gain me money or happiness. I wont be harmed without it and I know it will potentially make a little girl or boy going through a horrendous time smile. That’s all that matters really. Honestly I only enjoy it for aesthetic reasons, my hair has become my personality but I will carry on. Its good to challenge yourself every now and then. Scary is good. (To a degree!)
I will link the website here if anyone is interested in learning more about the charity.
Remember to Smile…It wont hurt you 🙂
How often do you hear someone say “I’d never be able to go out with them, they’re way out of my limit” or do you say/think “s/he’s way too good for me” ?
Well stop! NOW.
Where have we all gotten this from? Thinking that others are better than us for some reason or another? Is it because they’re more attractive than you, maybe they are more intelligent, confident, happy etc.
Nobody on this planet has the right to say that people are above or below them on some metaphorical scale. Everyone is equal, there isn’t a single reason why you cant date or even talk to your crush. (unless they are already in a relationship that is. If they are just be patient, the relationship may end or you might have to just settle for a solid friendship.)
That cutie on the bus? Just go talk to them. Heck I don’t know maybe even Zac bloody Efron if that’s what you’re into. 🙂 (although, it may be hard to get close to him and initiate some sort of relationship.) If you like someone the only thing standing between you and them is you. If you say to yourself that they’re too good for you then you haven’t got any chance with them have you. You’ve quit before you have even tried.
If you’re reading this thinking of that special someone you haven’t had the confidence to talk to, just do it. Please. 🙂 You deserve happiness.
Life is to short to wonder “what if” Living means taking risks (by that I do not mean running across the road! 😉 ) So many opportunities are missed by people who are too scared to jump. Take the leap of faith, I promise that 99.9% of the time you wont regret it.
And if you take my advice and it goes horribly wrong, at least you know where you stand with this person. It may take an awkward conversation but it will be worth it.
There’s this guy on my bus, that sometimes gets on in the morning as I’m on my way to work. He’s cute, maybe ill take my own advice..Maybe 😉
Smile…it really wont hurt you!! 🙂
Do you know the feeling you get when everything kinda sucks…? Yeah well I have found the perfect solution!
emergency dance party!!
Yes! Ever feel sad/angry/hurt or just in general kinda rubbish?!
Well just follow these steps and prepare to feel a whole lot better!
1. Make sure your house Is empty/have parents or friends that don’t mind very loud music.
2. Grab your phone, iPod, laptop, computer or other music emitting equipment and turn it to shuffle or if you’re super awesome your predetermined emergency dance party playlist an turn the volume up to full.
3. Dance, sing or (scream at the top of your lungs) if you sing of key like me 😉
4. Have fun and forget all of your worries! 🙂
Tip: play rap music (providing you know the lyrics) as it gives you an awesome feeling when you nail the verses!!! 🙂
I hope this helps!!
Smile…it wont hurt you!!!
Everyday, as the sun begins its decent, something wonderful happens, A kind of magic that goes unnoticed from all but a select few, a heavenly glow illuminates the city. For that moment, it would seem that anything was possible.
Death, pollution, destruction. None of that matters.
All sadness and depression is lifted leaving way for happiness, hope, dreams…
Love. The one emotion that unites all humans together, the uppermost harmony, peace throughout the universe.
But only for that moment.
The soft sunlight slowly sets, once again eclipsing the city into darkness.
This year I am going to try my hardest to stick to a monthly “resolution” of sorts. Every month of 2013 I’m going to set myself a…task? To stick to. So…
1st month. First goal. This month I am trying to stop swearing. I realised just how much I swear and so now I’m counting how many times I swear in a day. It working so far as I’ve reduced the number from 12 to 8 and then from 8 to 5 then 5 to 3.
Smile, it won’t hurt you 🙂
