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.

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.

Being Mindful of Others

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.

Dream journal: the fight against the master of Halloween

I had a dream last night that I was with my family at my grandmas house when an the evil spirit Halloween took over the neighborhood. This demonic Halloween master would summon all these evil spirits or things we were the most afraid of. For me it was spiders. At some point I was trapped in a spider web struggling to get to a knife I had in my pocket to cut me loose. It was a real life horror event because Halloween is supposed to be scary. I had to rescue my own family throughout because I didn’t want anything bad to happen to them. We eventually found a way to summon Santa Claus to help save us. We broke a glass ball that at anytime would summon Santa to help. I’m not sure where this ball came from but there was a giant chest full of them all labeled differently. But Halloween feeds off of fear so he was already stronger than Santa by a long shot. Then out of no where the zodiac signs were summoned which was pretty cool than some how Zeus comes in and kills Halloween and sends him back to his realm. It was a clash of many different realms and beliefs in cultures.

Is there a true ideal weight?

We all are born differently. We have different traits eyes noses color of skin etc.. So is there really a perfect weight someone should be at? The answer is no. We all have unique bond structures that sometimes make most of our weight. For example, I have a thick bone structure, so most of my body is boney but I do have some muscle on me too. Women going through child birth, our bodies are never the same after giving birth to a child. We can try as hard as we can to slim down but it won’t be like it was before. There are those people who are always on the road for their jobs. For example, truckers who are sitting in a truck most of the time tend to be on the bigger side because they’re not exposed to exercise like other people are daily. Also fast food tends to be more convenient for them. We all can’t help the way we are. For some people it’s easier for them to lose weight than others. We have different life styles when it comes to work and being at home etc.. Some people are more attracted to bigger people than others. Some people like butts over boobs. Some people like a dad bod and others don’t. There is someone made for al of us. So why should we be judged on our weight? It makes us beautiful and unique individuals. Be happy with the way you are. You were made to be special whether it’s in your families eyes or others, it shouldn’t matter as long as you love yourself than that is what the biggest power there is. Some women with bigger boobs have self confidence issues because they don’t like the size of them. I have a friend who she loves her body for the most part but wishes her chest was smaller, she can’t help the way she was born. I think she is blessed to have big boobs! Sometimes I wish I had bigger boobs but I do love my boobs in the end. Who cares what people say or think about our weight, let you do you. With social media these days, we have the influencers who put into our heads that if you don’t look this way then you won’t get likes comments etc. you won’t become popular. We think oh if we look this way then we will get a woman or man but in all reality it’s not true. We shouldn’t conform to outside influences but who do because it’s hard to avoid it. l

Also happy birthday to my amazing boyfriend❤️
