When life trips you up…

It can be really hard to get back up. I’m not sure why, but even when the obstacles present in our life seem small and insignificant, they can still pose great challenge. Especially when you’ve gone through things much worse (hello, week stay in a mental hospital) and so you feel silly for being so “dramatic”. But regardless of how big or meaningful or dire the bumps in the road are, each time we manage to go climb over them it still feels like a battle- and when you’ve overcome that teeny tiny hill, it still fills you with accomplishment and bravado.

So while last night I had heartburn a thousand times more painful and harder to work through (heartburn is fucking killer :l) than the emotional obstacles I faced yesterday, it. Was. Still. Hard. Long story short, I began this blog on another blogging site, blog.com. It was literally the first free website that come up, and I instantly fell in love with the admin process, layout of posts, and the gorgeous, fairytale theme. Unfortunately, this excitement only lasted two days, as although my blog technically still exists somewhere in the vast land of Internet, the website has deleted all recollection of me as its admin and therefore says I have zero posts and whatnot. Yep, kind of a bummer. Oh, and their help/support page apparently doesn’t exist. But according to my expert snooping skills, the website hasn’t been doing well since 2013. Okay, so a few posts from the site’s official blog may that explained this may have come up on my dashboard, but I am a detective, god damnit.

Thankfully, I was able to find this lovely website right hurr that had the same stunning theme. Content sigh ♥ And while this shit was pretty much no big deal, it stressed me out like crazy because I genuinely enjoy blogging and finding hobbies that make me feel good is kind of hard for me. So that’s my story about how I freaked out over three posts on a blog I just made and nearly cried out of frustration.

Presently, I’m determined to actually do something today. My “oh-so-productive” day that I predicted? Yeah, didn’t go that well. The past few days I planted all of the flowers J and his mom passed onto my care (and my little bb’s are already growing!) but that’s where my productivity halted. For two days. But I promise,- nay, I pinkie swear!- that today is my day to shine and be hella creative and productive. I have so much to do… ;-;

Buuuut before I go, here’s a little life tip if you guys are in the difficult process of loving yourself and exploring life, surround yourself with positivity. Not just in real life either, but here on the web. I promise we don’t bite! Here’s a couple bloggers to start you off. If you haven’t already, pay the mega babes Gala Darling (http://galadarling.com/) and Veronica Varlow (http://dangerdame.com/diary/), it’s sooo incredibly worth it. They truly inspire me and I think they might inspire you too 🙂

Do you have any favorite bloggers that you think embody true self-love and inner-peace? What about writers, artists, teachers, etc.?

  1. Sometimes the little things can be as hard as the big things. It all depends on where your head is at. If it isn’t in a good place, then overcoming the little difficulties can feel like you are moving boulders uphill.

    Oh and a word of advice–BACK UP YOUR POSTS and BLOG on a regular basis. It still amazes me after a year and half in the blogging world, how many people I come across that have never backed up their blog.

    As far as your question goes…
    I have a lot of favourite bloggers but in other areas. Funny, even though I try to bring a little inspiration to my own readers, going in exploration of positive writers for myself isn’t something I’ve done. To be honest, I just don’t have the time because it is spent on the activities of my own two blogs and a couple others that I am a part of. However, there is one blogger in particular, who I wish I could visit more often. Her writing style is incredible and she always tries to incorporate positivity and humour into each of her posts. In fact, she is the one who put me on to you. You might know her blog, “Patacake Pages”? 😉


    • Thank you so much for the advice! I honestly didn’t think of that. I shall do that tonight. That’s nice that you’re involved in other places of writing though, it sounds fun! Oh yes, I know her 🙂 hahaha she’s very creative and quirky. I’ll have to thank her ha.

  2. Enter patacake pages author to say thanks for the shout out Lisa, and I will return the favor. When I want some positivity in my day, I turn to the Path of Positivy on blogger (http://pathofpositivitychallenge.blogspot.ca/). While they are a crafting challenge blog, there is some sage advice and visitors can post their artwork or words of positivity in the theme of the month. May has been Wisdom.
    Keep writing!
