This is one of my favorite songs to listen especially when I am alone, or at night, or whenever I feel incomplete. It’s written by the American singer-songwriter, Jenn Bostic, which is composed for her father who died when she was a little girl. The song is released in 2012.
I find the song very powerful and emotional. It feels like your heart is being pricked with a pin in every word of the lyrics. I actually feel like crying every time I hear the song.
Losing someone in your life is really difficult. Shadows of the memories… The thought of not feeling or seeing that person or loved one EVER again… The sadness that feels like forever…
“Life becomes easier when you let go of the unneeded stress. If it’s out of your control, don’t let it worry you.”
I guess stress is a part of growing up. Life becomes harder because of stress that comes up along with our problems, our trials. But bear in mind that it’s how you understand the situation and manage it.
This may sound easy, but it’s hard… YOU JUST NEED TO BE STRONG AND NEVER LET GO OF YOUR FAITH IN GOD AND TRUST YOURSELF THAT YOU’LL SURVIVE.
I don’t hate English subject, but I don’t love it much as well. Nonetheless, it really makes a HUGE difference if you are able to understand and communicate in English.
It was in high school when I found out how powerful using SYNONYMS are. It helped me expound any message I’d like to tell to anyone.
Again, as a disclaimer, I am not good in English but I’d like to share with you some good things I know that may be beneficial to you as well. So, let’s start with the synonyms that we can use in our sentences in terms of various emotions. Game?
There you go! Try to utilize these synonyms and let me know how it goes! 🙂
There are some things that we don’t have control. Problems and trials come constantly. And sometimes, we find them overwhelming.
Here are some signs that you are really stressed…
Stress affects our health. It also makes us feel really tired, over-burdened, and very depressed. And when we experience this, it’s either we over eat or we lose appetite. Hence, makes us feel sick and uneasy.
Yes, we may not be able to control stress, but let’s try to help ourselves to manage it. After all, we just wanted to be happy and have a peaceful life.
I’m not an expert at this but here are some tips that could possibly help you manage stress.
Take some time to relax. Watch a good movie, have a massage, enroll in a yoga class, or travel! Things that would really make you feel relaxed and release that feeling of stress and anxiety.
Connect with people. Share how you feel with people close to you (family or closest friend maybe). Seek some advice on your situation. Let someone know what is happening and how you feel about your situation.
Keep a positive and realistic attitude towards your problems. Make an effort to maintain positive thoughts instead of being too depressed, angry or negative about it. Instead of dwelling being “down”, try to clear your mind and think of something that you could “somehow” do over it or try to find good books or readings online that may help you. Bible is of great help.
Welcome humor. Laughter is always the best medicine! It also helps your mind to relax and to avoid over-thinking.
Sleep and get enough rest. If you are stressed, your body needs extra time to rest and your mind to relax and be at peace. And when you wake up, you’ll feel more refreshed, body and mind, to think of what to do next and act positively.
Life is so short. Let’s all aim to be happy…ALWAYS.
