My Daily Reminders

I pledge to improve my thoughts each day by reminding myself of these following things.

My Daily Reminders
Kate T. Parker

Today, on a day crazier than most, I decided to take the time to sit down and think about my mental health. No, I do not have a diagnosed mental disorder, but that does not necessarily mean my mental health is my best asset. My heart cannot stop thumping when I think I upset someone, I have a hard time unwinding at night because of the worries that run through my head, and I am constantly comparing myself and my assets to others around me. I often find myself mindlessly going through the motions of the day, and I usually think coffee and chocolate will solve all problems; though it solves most, I know it cannot fix my true health.

So today, I have pledged to start a journey to a more positive mind. I am going to post a list on my bathroom mirror of thoughts I hope to embed in my head. I am going to read through this list every day in hopes of bringing positivity to my mind and leaving the negativity behind.

I should never feel guilty for doing what is best for me.

I am allowed to say no without an explanation.

I am what I do, not what I say I will do.

I owe myself the love I give so freely to others.

I will survive if the fire inside of me burns brighter than the fire around me.

I am going to collect less "stuff" this year and collect more experiences instead.

Small progress is still progress.

My possibilities are endless.

Self-love is not selfish.

What’s coming will come, and I will meet it when it does.

It is okay to not do it all. But it is also okay to try to do it all if I want.

If you see something beautiful in someone, speak out.

It might not all work out, but seeing if it does may be one of the best adventures of my life.

There is a difference between giving up and knowing when you have had enough.

I must be willing to walk alone; many who start with me will not finish with me, and many who finish with me will never have started near me.

I am a boss a** woman with a college degree, and no one will ever be able to take that from me.

I will always persist, thanks to those women who persisted before me.

I was created some the same universe that created mountains, oceans, and stars. Revel in that. Understand that I was created to be just as beautiful; I am just as beautiful.

At the end of the day, we all must remember that positivity is a choice, and our minds will always believe everything we tell it. So today, I ask you to make a promise to your mind; a promise that you will feed it hope, that you will feed it truth, and that you will feed it with love. Here are my daily reminders, what are yours going to be?

NYC Classrooms struggle with marijuana and high students

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reported that about 35.7% of 12th graders in the U.S. had used marijuana in the past year, and 11.8% reported daily use.
