Dear Doubt…

Dear Doubt,

 

You’ve been a friend of mine for many years. We met when I was 8, which I thought was too young but you cooed me into believing that I was wrong about that and so much more.

 

You’ve krept up behind me and tapped me on the shoulder, reminding me that you were still there. I adjusted, and began to expect your presence. But little did I know that you were going to be my constant companion.

 

With every tap on the shoulder, you carved out a small part of me and replaced it with a part of you.

 

With every tap you were trying to get closer to my heart, my mind and my soul. And today, I congratulate you… You made it into my heart and mind. You’ve stolen every positive thought, every bit of self-confidence. So, I’ve learned to live with none. As a child I never would have though that my motto would be “fake it until you make it”. You caused me to disappoint my younger self. And for that I also blame myself.

 

Everywhere I walk I seem to stumble over you. Everywhere I turn, I seem to see you.

 

You’ve made it to my heart. You’ve stolen any bit of love I had for myself and replaced it with hate. You’ve been selfish, Doubt. You wanted all the love for yourself. And for this I pity you. I pity that you have felt the need to steal love from my peers wherever you go. We have had to work to rebuild what you have torn down so easily. And I’ve done this willingly, but not gladly.

 

But today, I also congratulate myself.

 

I congratulate myself because although you’ve robbed many parts of me, you haven’t made it to my soul. I congratulate myself on this because I’ve worked incredibly hard to save this central part of myself. Doubt, you are only so powerful. And over the past few years, I’ve learned this.

 

I used to believe that you were the most powerful force in my life. But you’re not. You are just a thief that poached parts of me until I felt low. You are just a thief that poached parts of my friends until they felt low.

 

Dear Doubt,

 

I don’t need you anymore. I don’t need you anymore, and neither does anyone else.

My Best of 2015 List

Hey there!

Thanks for sticking around after this blogging hiatus🙂

Today, I thought that I would share my best of life list for 2015.

 

Daily Tradition

Screen Shot 2016-01-13 at 5.53.32 PM

For the past few months I have been following a fabulous Instagram account, Christ_Within. It is amazing account that I have been logging onto every morning and every night to have a little devotional time on the go. It is so quick and easy to look at when I am having a hard time and it immediately cheers me up! I also write down specific posts that I love in my devotional book that I keep with my Bible🙂

Movie

Quad_AW_Amy_V-9_OnlineOnly

Amy Winehouse was one of the most talented (and troubled) singers I have ever heard. This documentary shines a spotlight on her life of addiction, but also exposes her raw ability and never ending talent.

Screen Shot 2016-01-13 at 5.53.44 PM

The Long Walk Home is a fantastic movie set in the civil rights movement and more specifically the famous bus boycott. It was amazingly inspiring🙂

Album

Taylor_Swift_-_1989

Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ album, duh! This album is just plain amazing!! I am obsessed with every song and I have gotten in the habit of playing it over, and over. My favorite song on the album that is not a single like, “Shake it Off“, is “I Know Places“. Her new concert movie on Apple Music is awesome as well (even though I actually did go to the concert!! See that post HERE).

Youtuber

Screen Shot 2016-01-13 at 5.55.12 PM

My favorite youtuber of 2015 is Mallory Cornelison aka Mallory1712 on Youtube! I have actually mentioned her previously here!

TV Show

person-of-inte1rest

In 2015 I have been obsessed with “Person Of Interest“. It is a unique takes on your mainstream crime TV show! It is about two men who work with “the machine” to figure out if an individual is a perpetrator or victim in each episode. . . cool right?!

NYC Liquid Eyeliner in ‘Black’

I have recently switched from the Stila Stay All Day liquid eyeliner because I was finding that it was so dry that I was having trouble making my signature wing! And I ended up fishing around in my collection and found my NYC liner. . . so I decided to try it out again. And I fell in love! It is just wet enough to easily control, which is a MUST!! My only complaint is that it is not waterproof!!

The Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette

This palette is something all you makeup lovers need to get your hands on! It is true to the usual UD eyeshadow quality, and it has a couple fun colors to dip your toes in the water but it also has everyday colors to work into every look🙂 Also, the packaging is GORGEOUS!!

What to bring to the ER

Hey there! Happy almost Thanksgiving🙂

Sadly yesterday, I ended up in the emergency room. . . again.

But, without doubt, there is always a collection that I bring with me. One good thing about having a chronic illness is building experience!! So today I thought I would share some tips on what to bring.

 

  1. A baggy and comfy sweatshirt

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 5.43.45 PM

I have found the VS Pink sweatshirts tend to be my favorite. Yes, they can get expensive, but I feel that it’s worth it!

 

2. Fuzzy Socks

cn10097977

Fuzzy socks are a MUST for almost everywhere!! But especially in the hospital! Hospital’s tend to be freezing!

3. Slippers/Uggs

946321-p-4x

Again, hospitals are like the arctic. . . I have no idea why they haven’t heard of heat yet! This is the pair of Uggs I’ve had for years and I always bring them because I am so cold blooded and am always cold. This is due to another condition, Raynaud’s. But slippers will do just fine as well🙂

4. Ipod and Earphones

18s0a8u7v0uv6jpg

Sometimes the ER can be loud, so you reach for your music. . . Sometimes you need a distraction from why you’re there, so you reach for you’re music.

**I feel like this is self-explanatory!!

 

4. Optional: Phone and Laptop

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 6.05.11 PM

My Laptop! I get these stickers ’cause I’m a good patient!! Can you tell I love Frozen?!

I bring my laptop because one of my favorite distractions is watching Youtube videos!

Here are some of my favorite people to watch:

maxresdefault

Jaclyn Hill – I love her because she is hilarious, talented and makes amazing videos!!

jkf8FlDr

Mallory Cornelison – She is one of my favorite people ever! She has a chronic illness as well. She is such a big inspiration to me🙂 Not to mention her and her hubby’s vlogs are adorable!! She is so gifted with makeup and even makes “Wednesday Wisdom” advice videos that are fantastic🙂

—————————————-

I hope this helped you even a little bit, and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!
