Dream Journal: Dragon

So I was able to transform into a dragon there was this guy trying to hunt me down but never knew what my human state looked like. So I was grocery shopping with you one day and there was a robbery I literally picked my boyfriend up and flew him out of there because I wanted to protect my boyfriend. Then I went back to make sure everything was okay once I got you out of there and he was safe. This random dude comes over to me in my human form I’m out of my dragon form and tried to accuse me of drinking although I was sober af and I’m over here like wtf? He was a cop too so I was like okay go ahead and accuse me and test me cause I’ll pass with flying colors. So he tests me and I pass and he lets me go I’m like dude I could’ve been saving these people and yet you’re over here wasting my time laughs at me and asks me how can you possibly save them. I told him watch. As I’m running into the store I transform into my dragon state and I smacked the officer with my tail. Unfortunately this is the time I woke up so that’s where it ended 🙂 hope you guys enjoyed this dream of mine!

Mental health day

Some of you guys may know about some of my mental health problems I’ve had in my past, but for those who don’t I would love to be open about it. I suffered peripartum and postpartum depression. For those who aren’t familiar with those two terms peripartum is developed during pregnancy and postpartum is depression that follows afterwards. Another thing I didn’t really realize I had till later on in life was post traumatic stress disorder, also known as, PTSD. I had develop these things all after a traumatic event that really changed my life for ever. I have written a blog about this event previously so I do encourage if you do want to know what had happened to read it. I want people to know that mental health is no joke. Sometimes I find myself steal dealing with a little bit of PTSD, but it does get easier because I have the support system out there. I know it’s something that’s hard for a lot of people to talk about or be open to vulnerability, but just know you’re not alone. There are so many strong people battling mental health every single day. Keep your head strong and keep fighting.

Dream Journal: the hot mess soccer game

I used to Play soccer a few years back which in a way I felt like this dream I had was a memory of the good times of soccer.

One day I had a soccer game. I was playing for my former coach Diego at this time and my family and I decided to take a detour to get gummies. We all grabbed two bags of gummies each because we all for some odd reason was craving gummies. We were running late for my soccer game. We barely make it in time and it was a hot mess. The team we played consisted of all Asians which was really random in my opinion. They would complain about every single thing during the entire game. The referees we had were wearing tuxedos which was really irrelevant because you’re not supposed to wear that. So these Asians were literally playing super dirty and purposely falling and getting called in their favor every single time. Some how I scored which changed the game because the other team decided to argue if it was a legit goal or not although it clearly hit the back of the net. That’s the end of my dream. It was very odd and random but made me miss playing soccer when I woke up.

How to Improve Language communication

Be concrete and specific: Get in touch with your senses
Be Precise-Use details and examples to avoid ambiguity (“things” and “stuff”)

Use qualifying language to avoid generalizations: avoiding “never” and “always”
EXAMPLE:

“He’s hilarious.” (vague and generalized)

“Tom’s jokes are hilarious.” (better)

“When Tom told the joke about the watermelon, everyone laughed.” (even better)

Adapt language to your listeners (Who): Try to avoid jargon and slang the other person may not understand or may misinterpret ▣

Demonstrate linguistic sensitivity (Be respectful/polite, not sexist, racist, offensive, etc.) ▣

Use “I” statement: Avoid “you” statements. Improve your emotional vocabulary: Clearly articulate your “6th sense”

Improve Message Semantics: Be CONCRETE AND SPECIFIC ○Use concrete and precise language with details and examples to improve specificity. ◦Be CONCRETE: words that describe something that can be sensed ◦Name your senses.   What is the 6th sense? ◦Be PRECISE: Specific descriptive details ○AVOID AMBIGUITY (imprecise): words such as “things”

Body Positive: Skin Care Routine/ Products

Hey babes! I thought I’d take today to really talk to you guys about what I use for my skin!

So my secret so having such good skin is I use two products from Sephora as an everyday day and night skin time routine. The first product I use is an AMA Cleanse skin gel. It’s for the face, neck, and around the eyes. It has a blue tag. The benefits are that it tones and cleanses your skin. The ingredients are water, coco-glucoside, glycerin, xanthan, sodium PCA, parfum, citric acid, sodium Benzoate, potassium sorbate, aloe extract, and sodium hydroxide. Usually I use this while I shower right before I get out of the shower because you’re supposed to massage it over wet skin and rinse. The next product I use is a HYA super hydration all day hydrator. You can use this product as a primer but apply this when your skin is dry and all clean. It has a pink tag. There are too many ingredients to list so I’ll insert a picture of the ingredients instead. I recommend these two highly because my skin has looked way since using these two products on a daily 🙂

This is all my own opinion based on my own results.

What kind of communicator are you?

There are four general categories of communication. First is the outspoken, direct, and assertive. These kind of people tend to stand up for own needs or wants. They’re usually more stubborn and set in their own ways and ideas. Also, tend to not like the idea of change. Second, are those who are quiet, reserved, or passive. These people avoid arguments, don’t really like confrontation, like to keep things peaceful, and usually just keep more to themselves. An example would be like if you and your partner got into a fight and they leave the room, that’s when they’re passive, reserved, etc. Third, are those who are thoughtful and analytical. You analyze certain situation, you don’t jump into conclusions right away, take your time, or you like to hear ideas, to name a few of ways to be like this. Lastly, are those who are friendly and unassuming. These people are modest, nonjudgmental, or unpretentious. I find myself falling into all of these ways of communicating, however I find myself in friendly because I have a personality where I’m open minded and I tend to get along with everyone. Which kind are you?
