Well well well… it is now 2020!!! We made it in safe and it is truly a blessing. Because somebody didn’t wake up, somebody didn’t make it to 2020, so it is definitely a blessing to see a new year.
I’m wishing nothing but the blessings to you all and your families. I pray and wish that all of our dreams (your dreams) come true, we just have to keep pushing through, we have to understand that not everything is going to go our way. Keep the faith and no matter what… always remember, that it’s never to late to accomplish your dreams, or should I say your goals.
I have many great wishes for all of you… I pray that whoever is going through something, feeling so not loved, or feeling like not a thing in your life is astounding, remember that it’s a new year 2020 its a new beginning, a new chapter, to do and to accomplish your goals. You can make it happen! Don’t let nothing or no one stop you. Do what you got to do for you, you can make your aspirations come true.
A year has gone by and new year anticipates all of us. This new year expects us. A new year comes with promises, resolutions, and last but not least… we can make positive changes in our lives, that’ll lead towards a positive and beautiful future. Take last year for instance, if you didn’t accomplish your goal last year, it’s 2020 a new year let’s make it happen.
A new year is a change, while that change we believe we can change right along with it. It takes dedication, you have to be determined to change. If last year wasn’t your who’s to say this year won’t be?! Just like the freshness from Gain’s washing powder, I hope and pray that the new year brings a lot of excitement and accomplishments for us all. I’m counting my blessing everyone and wishing you all more.
Choose to make the rest of your life the best of your life.
It’sa new year 2020… anything or anybody negative you have to dismiss them. Being around negative people, rubs off on you. Choose to be joyful and not happy because joy is a constant delight, choose to make your goals a reality.

So once again, HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE, especially to all followers.
I wish you all the best. I wish that the new year brings love, accomplishments, positive changes in life if needed, and I wish nothing but motivation and inspiration to continue to fight, and achieve your goals in life and also to remember that you’re not alone in this. Yeah we may suffer with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, or ocd, but we’re all humans… and we all can succeed and accomplish our goals, and live happy and free.
There’s many different conditions that are recognized as mental illnesses. Down below are the more common types… welcome to a way to understanding mental illnesses.
What is Mental Illness? Mental illnesses are conditions that affects a person’s thinking, mood, feeling, behavior, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, or schizophrenia. Such conditions may be occasional or long-term and long-lasting (chronic) and affect someone’s ability to relate to others and function each day.
It is when someone lacks the ability to manage day to day tasks and/or control their behavior so that basic physical and emotional needs are threatened or unmet.
What is Mental Health? Mental health includes our emotional, our social well being, and psychological. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and to make healthy choices. Your mental health is important at every stage of life from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
Even though the terms are regularly used interchangeably, poor mental health and mental illness are not the same things. A person can experience very poor mental health and even be diagnosed with a mental illness. Otherwise, a person diagnosed with a mental illness can experience periods of physical, mental well-being, and social well-being.
Why is mental health very important for overall health?
Physical and mental health are both equally important elements of overall health. Mental illness such as depression, increases the risk for many types of physical health problems, particularly long-lasting conditions like stroke, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes. Equivalently, the presence of chronic conditions can most definitely increase the risk for mental illness.
Can your mental health change?
Yes, your mental health can change overtime yes… most definitely. It’s important to remember that a person’s mental health can in fact change over time, depending on many factors. When the commands placed on a person exceed their resources and their coping abilities, their mental health could be a testimony. It could be impacted.
If you have a mental health condition, you’re not alone. 1 in 5 U.S. adults experiences some form of mental illness in any given year. Across America, 1 in 25 adults is living with a serious mental health condition such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or long-term recurring major depression.
Just as with other serious illnesses, mental illness is not your fault or that of that of the people around you, but the widespread of misunderstandings about mental illness still remains. Sadly. Many people don’t seek treatment or remain unaware that they’re symptoms could be connected to a mental health condition. Some people expect a person with a serious mental illness to look visibly different from others, and they might tell someone who does not “look ill” to “get over it” through willpower. These misconceptions add to the challenges of living with a mental health condition.
Every year people overcome the challenges of mental illness to do things that they enjoy doing. Through developing and following a treatment plan, you can suddenly reduce many of your symptoms. People with mental health conditions, can and actually do pursue higher education, succeed in their careers, and have relationships and friends. Mental illness can slow us down sometimes, but we don’t have to let it stop us right?!
Depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia are just some severe mental illnesses. All of them can be severe. Different emotions and feelings, and your thoughts are constantly racing. Dark emotions and feelings, and you feel like every thought is actually real. Feeling guilty and worthless everyday. Feeling like life just isn’t for you, you isolate yourself from everything and everyone, because you feel like no one understands you or what you’re going through. Or maybe…. you’re feeling like you’re alone, feeling like nothing nothing or no one can help you…
But that’s not true…
You are not alone. I have suffered from major depression and anxiety for so many years. More than 8 years. And I have suffered by myself and also I didn’t get treatment quick either, I suffered alone for along time… and I promise you it just gets worse and worse. It’s HELL. Everyday is a repeated nightmare. Get help.
There’s treatments that’ll help you. Don’t sit there thinking things a get better by themselves because it won’t! Trust me. You can beat this, and you can start off by seeking help and receiving treatment. You’ll thank me later… I promise you. You don’t have to be in despair everyday because there’s therapy, and counseling as well. Always remember you are not alone. Mental illnesses isn’t something you can run from or be prepared for… it just happens.
Anybody’s a victim. It just comes without a warning, and if you haven’t experienced it… you’re very lucky! Very blessed. I don’t wish mental illness on no one, you hear me?! It’s like you’re not the old you. Sometimes you feel like “what’s wrong with you?” Or you say to yourself “you need another brain!” Sometimes it feels like you’re going insane!
A person can have everything they could ever imagine. Their life is so perfect, and you never hear anything negative about them. They could be living in a 3 story house, beautiful kids, and a wife/husband.
That husband could be facing unexplainable emotions and feelings. He’s probably ashamed because he’s the man of the house, and men are suppose to be strong. Right?!
A person could be the happiest wife, prettiest wife….
With a big paying job… and on the inside, when that person is by themselves…
Guess what?! At night that person could be struggling with depression, and/or anxiety attacks. That person might be fighting for their life on the inside.
When that person is by themself, and home alone… they probably just sit crying inside. You never know what a person is going through. You never know what type of demons a person could be fighting on a daily basis. You don’t know what type of emotions or/and feelings this person face everyday. They feel like they’re dying on the inside. Thoughts and emotions rushing through your mind, feeling hopeless, feeling like nothing is even worth it. You’re just so unhappy. But you pretend well because you don’t know who to trust… or who to tell.
Mental illnesses are brain-based conditions that affect thinking, emotions, and behaviors. We all have brains— so since we all have brains, having some kind of mental health issue during your life is very common.
Us, who have a mental illness, we can’t help that our brains has changed in a way which makes it hard to think, feel, or act in ways that we want to. Experiencing extreme and unexpected changes in mood- like feeling more sad or worried than normal. Some mental illnesses makes it hard to communicate with someone who’s talking to them, or not being able to think clearly, or having bizarre thoughts to help explain weird feelings we’re having.
Clinical depression. The persistent feeling of sadness or loss of interest that’s characterizes major depression can lead to a range of behavioral and physical symptoms. These may include changes in sleep, appetite, energy level, concentration, self-esteem, or daily behavior. Depression can also be associated with thoughts of suicide.
Anxiety disorder. A mental health disorder characterized feelings of worry, anxiety, or fear that are strong enough to interfere with daily life. Examples of anxiety is panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Bipolar disorder. A disorder linked with episodes of mood swings ranging from depressive lows to manic highs.
Schizophrenia. A disorder that effects a person’s ability to think, feel, and behave clearly.
Autism. A serious developmental disorder that impacts the ability to communicate and interact.
Post traumatic stress disorder. A disorder in which a person has difficulty recovering after experiencing or witnessing a terrifying event. The condition may last months or years, with triggers that bring back memories of the trauma accompanied by intense emotional and physical reactions.
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. A chronic condition including attention difficulty, hyperactive, and impulsiveness. It often starts in childhood and can persist in adulthood. Symptoms include limited attention and hyperactivity.
Always remember: You Are What You Are… And You Mean So Much To ThisWorld. Wake Up Everyday, Determined To Store In You Motivation. Make It A Priority. You Are Strong, And Phenomenal.
Hello everyone!! Good morning I hope you’re enjoying your Sunday. Or are you having a crappy day? Need a little motivation? Okay… that’s why I’m here….
We all have some good days, and than, we all have those bad days. Not everyday is going to be a perfect day. Not everyday is going to be a good day… everyday have a purpose.
I know exactly how those days are. Especially…. when dealing with mental illness. It’s painful and it drains you. Not physically but emotionally… but you mustn’t lose hope.You mean so much to this world. Now I know depression by itself, can kill your motivation by making you feel like there’s no point to anything.
Majordepression, clinicaldepression… isverysevere. Thosein a major clinical depression, life is like a dark place full of nothing but pain, hopelessness, and insecurity. Some may taunt at the ideal of medication as an answer. But with most mental illness, medications are much needed. Therapy and taking your medications can actually be a miracle. Medications are for, and deal with chemical imbalances.
Sometimes the blame can actually be placed on brain chemistry. Neurotransmitters don’t work right, and brain chemicals such as serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine— your feel-good chemicals— often doesn’t go where they’re suppose to. Find the right medications, and you may feel more like your actual self again. When you’re feeling better, becoming motivated becomes more easier.
A good therapist goes hand in hand with medications. One without the other is kind of a half-solution. Talking to a trained professional therapist, you’ll feel better because you’re sitting and talking to someone who knows how to listen.
Good friends listen, yes, but don’t go forego a therapist for a friend. Well-meaning friends may tell you to just get over it or to pull yourself up by your bootstraps and socks. This effects in a remorseless cycle. Making you feel worthless and stupid because you’re finding it hard to brush your teeth, much less to pull yourself up by your bootstraps and socks. This leads to a deepening depression/mental illness, which leads to more “helpful” remarks, which in fact, leads to even more depression. More anxiety. Unfortunately the thick, ugly scars of depression, or any other mental illness, are not outwardly visible, and when your wounds aren’t visible, sympathy from your friends, and family, is hard to come by.
Surround yourself around people who are familiar with mental illness instead of those who believe it’s just all in your head. Every morning wake up, brush your teeth, and brush your hair, take your bath and get dressed. Don’t give yourself time to second think, don’t give yourself time to talk yourself out of it. Act as if you feel great already and you know for a fact you’re leaving the house and have a good time. Getting dressed, getting pretty looking decent can actually go along way towards giving you a mental boost. It may even give you enough energy, motivation to actually go to the gym, or exercise, which is great for alleviating mental illness, such as, depression.
Depression… major depression can change your brain in a way that makes it difficult to experience a sense of pleasure or reward. When depression makes you unbearably sad, numb, or exhausted, you might not feel like there is a reason to do anything. Most times you feellike “what’s the point right?”
When depression, or any other mental illness drains your motivation, you have to work to create new incentive to replace what existed naturally before your mental health deteriorated. It starts with setting goals. You can set a simple goal such as, grocery shopping. Once you succeed that… reward yourself by cooking your favorite meal, and watch/catch up on your favorite tv show.
Steadily increase the difficulty of the goals. As you feel better. Try taking a long walk and reward yourself later with your favorite chocolate candy. Like for example, my favorite chocolate candy is the chocolate turtles. Mmm Mmm Mmm good! (lol) Or another one of my favorites… chocolate cupcake. Whichever is your favorite though. Good treat.
I love cupcakes. Especially chocolate. Like for instance today… I washed and fold clothes, mopped and cleaned up my apartment, and treated myself with a chocolate cupcake with a lot of icing. My favorite, my treat. Order your favorite movie, or do like me… Watch a good movie on Netflix. Make sure to always set a goal for each day, once they’re accomplished, treat yourself to something new. There’s different options you can try, and see which works better.
Remember Your Life Before Depression/mental illness
Before depression set in, before you started struggling from mental illness, what did you enjoy doing? As they all come to mind, get a paper and write them all down. Than positioning them in terms ofwhatyou are able to accomplish, from most to least difficult. Until you are more motivated and have more energy, it’s best to start with the easy steps.
Think on what steps you can take to get back into a routine that includes those same activities. You might like volunteer work. Your next step should be to make some calls, and make a start day to make it happen. Than show up. Your motivation a start building up from there.
In a similar mood, think about what motivated you before the depression, before your mental health problems. What was it that inspired you? It could be from now or childhood. Revisit those sources of motivation. Get in touch with parts of yourself that may feel distant.
Mental illness, like depression, is often a unconscious voicethat relentlessly tells you there is no point in anything. Replace those negative thoughts with positive, intelligent beliefs. Tell yourself everyday, over and over, there is a point, you are somebody, you are beautiful. Even if you don’t believe it. Say it!
Sometimes outer factors kill your vibe, your motivation and contribute to clinical depression. Say you’re stuck at a dead end job. The only motivation you have to do good work is to keep your job and put food in your home. And honestly, it’s obviously not as refreshing as an environment you can move up and have more responsibilities if you work hard.
Does one or more of these factors are present in your life? Thanexamine theaffectthey have on your ability to feel motivated.
Everyone who hurt you, makes you feel worthless, and unmotivated… if you have to dismiss them out of your life than do so. You don’t need negative people around you. Surround yourself with positive people with positive vibes. I promise you’ll see the difference.
Everyday get out of bed and out of them pajamas… simply getting up is a great victory of the day to start off with. If you have to leave little sticky notes aroundwith positive affirmations where you see them all the time, such as “you’re beautiful,” “yes you can do it,” or “every long journey begins with one little step.” Another one… “never give up!” Whatever thoughts you create your brain digest, so make sure to feed it positive ones. Read uplifting content. And focus on feelings of gratitude.
Whatever gives you an energy boost, mental boost, do it. There’s many techniques, choose those that works for you. Worry less, motivate yourself back on track in your life.
Focus on you!! Focus on what motivates you to move forward. Focus on making “you” happy. Focus on getting you better. Focus on putting yourself first everyday, treat yourself… take a ride to the mall, or catch a movie, buy yourself a new outfit, live in the moment.
Everyday look in the mirror, and tell yourself, “I love you,”and “you got this,” tell yourself, “you’re beautiful Inside and out,” whether you believe it or not… repeat this everyday. Make it a routine to pamper yourself, make it a routine to tell yourself nice things.
Each and everyday are days to motivate yourself, and set goals for yourself. Try it…. it really works, it starts to spark up motivation.
