Think Before you Act

Abstract painting of blue ocean waves

Anticipate before Dissipate

How does analysis feel?

Imagine taking many twists and turns into your memories

Childhood ones are not (excluded)

You’re surfing green pipes in Mario and Luigi

You explore your past in a very short period of time

Those moments can reveal many forgotten memories and thought patterns

Remember your adolescence?

That had a life of its own

To analyze is to study your past

Running away is not a viable option

You’re not living in the past

You’re living in the future

View analysis as a therapeutic method for keeping yourself well-balanced

Studying your past, present and future

The circle of life becomes more fruitful

And this fruit you’re allowed to eat!

Kindness of Mind

Be kind sign on yellow-painted wall

Radiating Positivity

Your heart begs your mind to cooperate

Your mind begs your soul for guidance

Your heart fires back with instructions

Your mind begs your soul for guidance

Your soul remains in distant observation mode

Your mind asks you for alcohol and drugs

It wants a distraction from this world

Your heart starts tearing up

All it wants to see is your mind practicing kindness

But your mind becomes influenced by the world

Your soul is still observing almost from another world

Your mind finally musters up the courage to radiate positivity

Kindness of mind it tries

You start practicing it before the act forever dies

Before the world robs your peaceful state of mind

Word of advice: don’t wait for tomorrow to implement kindness

Exercise your Way to Happiness

The Duality of an Exercise State of Mind

Negative thoughts about exercising:

  • Why put more effort into my life?
  • I’m fine doing less work
  • Working out requires effort; I’m already tired from my job
  • I won’t lose weight so what does it matter?
  • I get tired within five minutes of exercising, so I prefer to not even bother
  • I don’t see any results
  • It’s too much work

Positive thoughts that you need to implement regarding exercising:

  • Hard work pays off
  • My mental health will improve
  • My body-mind connection will improve
  • I will feel more confident
  • I will become more disciplined
  • I will feel better about myself
  • People will compliment me on my improved physique
  • I will have more confidence in my ability to work hard

You see, as with anything that requires hard work in life, negative thoughts often get in the way of you succeeding. Negative thoughts have to be intentionally replaced with positive ones until your attitude shifts and the process of exercising becomes easier. It’s definitely possible; the question is, are you willing to start?

Chills in the Mirror

Self-Analysis is Key to Success

Everyone is talented at something they find more interest in. Some are great with visualization and goals, speech and entertainment, and others enjoy academia. One key to success that they all have in common is self-analysis; or at least they should have it in common! Without self-analysis, you risk becoming too dependent on the environment to understand yourself and where your fingerprints tend to fall in society.

But it requires courage; lots of it. Imagine the brain as a vault and your unconscious mind is locked in the deepest layers; your goal is to get down there! Do you even know how to? I guess we should first ask, do you even care? If so, prepare for a life journey with many twists and turns; many chills in the mirror.

There’s no rush with self-analysis, as long as you remain honest with yourself and don’t cheat out. You already have all the tools you need:; intuition, dreams and faith. If you can consistently utilize all three elements as much as possible, clarity of your life will become more apparent.

I guess many of us lack clarity in life. Clarity is not correlated with success, but a lack of it can possibly contribute to a lack thereof. When I refer to this, imagine as if your invisible being is wearing a pair of eyeglasses, the problem being that they’re blurry most of the time; can you really see what lies ahead weeks, months and years into the future?

Whether you’re suffering from an infection, virus or self-analytical pain, chills in the mirror are the common denominator. It’s a long process that is very-well worth it in the long-run and can bring you many benefits, a peaceful state of mind and that much needed, but very-well deserved clarity.

He Does Provide Guidance

Ground view of white clouds in sky

God: The Only Way

If only they knew that seeking is the only way

He invented creation before we had a chance to even think

All secrets and hidden things will be revealed to the world

When struggling with questions of morality

When you feel cornered with no good sense of direction

Your Father is waiting for you to seek

His presence is not far

Just look up to the heavens!

God sent his Son to help us

Try turning the other way and seeing his light

You can see him far away coming in sight

Don’t lose focus

We’re all in this together!

Trapped

Picture-of-abstract-face

Borderline State of Mind

The pain comes in rapidly

Unexpectedly it flows into your vicinity

Like a swallowed pill kicking in at the bottom of the hour

You’re taking another raincheck

You don’t know what to believe anymore

Do you allow the sadness to storm over

Or do you take control and roar

The truth is that you have to battle your way

Life wants to test, trick or tease you

And it’s up to you to be aware and react accordingly

Letting it swivel you around won’t bring you goods accordingly

You have to take control

Implement positive seeds, sprouting positive deeds

But even doing that tilts you at an unease

There’s a war on your mind

Mental illness is like a savage in the wild

A stranger that wants to make you uneasy

Can you spot it before it makes you uneasy?

Is this really a borderline state of mind?

Or in reality, only a test of time?

Creative Mind

Abstract painting of blue ocean with head

Learning to Utilize Imagination

Imagination is a tool underutilized

Its roots come alive only when tapped deep enough

Sometimes the soil is stubborn

The plants don’t get through

The rains keep trying

Your thoughts are glued

You wonder why you think so lame

Why you can’t elevate your game past a certain membrane

You lose touch with any excitement

Everything has become repetitive

You miss Mike Tyson

Your imagination is not going through

You just want to improve your outcomes

But your thoughts are glued

You have to learn how to use it like a tool

It’s not just dreaming and moving on

It takes a lot of acting to set it on

To make it a reality

From your mind to your environment

To manifest your wishes into real-world successes

The choice is yours if you want to tap in

Your imagination is waiting within

Do you know how to get in?

Marinating in Sadness

Woman in black dress wearing brown bag on head with sad face

Cooking Yourself Alive

Sometimes you need lubrication to get by

The alcohol uses your veins as a rollercoaster ride

Your sadness remains empty because it was never full

Alcohol alleviates the pain but it’s only a game

You come crashing down soon after again

The ride never seems to end

You just start all over as if stuck in quicksand

What’s left to do besides marinate in sadness

You’re paralyzed on the couch, your bedroom or your mind

You stare out the window slow as time

The world is moving forward but you’re stuck

If only you can ride that rainbow like Daffy Duck

Your rely on drugs for hope and aspiration

But you come crashing down quickly

Your sadness was always out of luck

People want to get to know you

But you lost interest in them before they even met you

You give them a chance and you’re already bored

They don’t think outside the box

They’re too manipulated by what they’re told

Seeking self-comfort seems like the only option at times

Peace of mind and solitude eases the painful obstacles of the mind

Can you relate to what I am saying or is this just a facade?

Think about it again because by tomorrow you probably forgot . . .

Lost Love

Blue and purple galaxy in night sky

Memories Don’t Lie

Losing love out of your life

The pain spills away

But cannot successfully leave your body

It builds up harming your psyche

Your heart cries in pain

Your mind no longer remains tamed

Your emotions take over

You stare at the sky lost over

The lost love has departed your life

The sky is glowing

But your strife is growing

How much longer till you recover

Will the pain last or will you move forward

Being stuck is no easy task

Especially when functional like on good grass

You try your best to invest

Your future relies on your self-interest . . .

Stepping Outside Your Comfort Zone

We Become Sad Because We Don’t Take Action

We become used to our comfort zone, preventing us from trying new things in life. Whenever this happens, we experience pain, sadness, frustration, annoyance and many more emotions. You are the one in control of your decisions; if you want to do something, just get out there and do it. By holding yourself back, you are complicating your life. Just do it.
