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.
I am sick with a cold and really bad congestion. I won’t be able to give my best efforts for a post. I hope everyone understands
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.

What is the 6th sense? ◦Be PRECISE: Specific descriptive details ○AVOID AMBIGUITY (imprecise): words such as “things”
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 🙂
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?
It is important to keep in mind about those around around you because your actions can effect them either negatively or positively. For example, if you live with someone and they have the habit of staying up late and coming home late, let them know ahead of time that you have to get up early in the morning or that you’ll be asleep by a certain time each night. That way they know to be quiet when they get home. It’s difficult to live with people at times, especially if your experiences are all new to them. Another example is, if there is a large group of people walking in front of you and there isn’t a way to go around them, just ask to say excuse me or pardon me, that way they can get out of the way. Those people can also be respectful and form a single file line. Every action can lead to another action. It is important to be looking up while walking, running, or any time you’re on your feet and to be aware of surroundings. If you’re out on a date and its cold outside and who ever you’re on a date with is clearly freezing cold, be generous and offer them your jacket or sweatshirt. Hold doors open for people because sometimes they have their hands full and may not always have a chance to open a door. Being mindful in a positive way can even change someones day. Let’s say your partner is having a rough day and you want to make them feel better. Doing little things for them can greatly change their mood. Buying flowers, taking them out for dinner, or giving them a massage to name a few can really impact them.
