So it's Mental Awareness Month and I just want everyone to know that although I'm not very active here in dA still feel free to send me random messages and I will try to reply whenever I can. I know the struggle as I'm also experiencing hardships with my mind currently (and life in general actually, #adulting
is hard) and although I haven't really gotten to a doctor (too poor for that) to get myself diagnosed with how my brain is constantly whispering "I'm better off dead". I know I probably have a problem here.
Writing journals online, stories and poetry have helped me express myself and provide an outlet as I haven't really have the time to draw either and so I know that being able to share your thoughts with someone might help albeit a stranger.
Despite this I'm already doing everyone's advise of try thinking positive and focus on the good things. It is hard but I have to try hard. Surviving everyday is a good thing and each day I try not to jump off buildings is a great success so sending love to all and yes let's celebrate the little things <3 Let me know what made you smile today!
(Reading this journal over and over again I'm debating whether I should post this since people might perceive it as whiny etc. etc. but I'm posting here to let everyone know everyone is struggling in their own little ways and in big ways and some choose to keep quiet but I want everyone to be aware so please be kind and don't judge people without being in their life and in their heads)
On a lighter news its 70 days before Christmas! This calls for another celebration! I'm hearing great Christmas songs in all kinds of genre and I love it! Time flies by and it's both a sad and a great thing depending on each person's perspective but for me today I would like to focus on the great thing that it's October and I'm still alive, with food to eat, air to breath, water to drink and bath with, clothes to wear and at least a house to sleep in and a job. To onward, forward and more ! <3
So now that I've expressed all that time to share some art regarding Mental Awreness. Keywords: Depression, Anxiety, Hopelessness but on the otherside; hope.
Gentlewolf wishes for more features, especially on her newest submission.
Like a phantom in the night
It’s unexpected and cruel.
Yet come mornings light,
There may be a renewal.
Like a baby bird about to take flight
Reluctant and scared
To it’s nest it holds on tight
Yet at the end of the plight
When we take time to review
The reasons against which we fight
Can be seen from a different view
Despite its unwelcome sight
And our wish for things to stay the same,
A new future that is bright
Could be waiting for you to claim.
Chaos to Balance, Peace and UnityChaos…
Life is chaos…
It is what we strive for.
We make plans, follow a schedule,
We become a slave to the clock.
We take for granted,
The wonders of life.
Everything is a wonder.
The shining sun,
The blue sky,
The cool breeze…
Even the dark clouds,
Life has a new lesson every day.
When you close yourself off,
You invite chaos into your daily life.
When your life is chaotic,
Your subconscious seeks balance.
Too much of one thing
Not enough of another.
Good and bad…
You cannot have one without the other.
It is through balance that you find peace.
There are many ways to find balance.
No one the same.
Respect one another to find unity.
Peace and unity is needed for survival.
The survival of our planet.
For survival we must learn our individual responsibility,
To create peace and unity
Through respecting everyone’s individuality
And mastering our own inner balance.
Alone...Tick Tock, Tick Tock… iLantiis wishes for a new dAWishingWell's member to be featured.
The living room clock resonates through the night…
As I sit here thinking, and conclude that my mind’s not right.
I imagine a pair of strong arms holding me tight,
Yet miles upon miles away, my husband is working with all of his might.
Another thought comes, and I ponder…
If I’d made the right decision would things have come to pass…
Or would a little longer my mother’s life had last?
Chasing away those thoughts before I cry
I think of yet another who never said goodbye…
Counting my blessings of which I have many,
And the future looks to have plenty…
Yet the past is hard to leave behind
Even though it hasn’t been so kind…
How do I move forward on my own?
With these feelings of being all alone?
Yet through this all, let it be known…
That my husband will one day be home…
Another best friend I will one day meet,
Though what I lost it will never replace…
And while my mother’s hea
