A Poem: We All Struggle. Trust Me, I Know.

"There cannot be a solution or an absolution without the drive to change or try harder."

A Poem: We All Struggle. Trust Me, I Know.

there comes a time in everyone's life

where they believe they are helpless.

where they think that they have sunk so low that nothing could help them

but this idea is false.

the thought that there couldn't possibly be anyone who could help them

or love them

or even make them smile

and see themselves for who they are

is not something they should believe.

when we fall short it is hard and awful

but giving into the idea that we can do no better

is way worse

it's like saying "thanks but no thanks" when a friend tries to love you.

it's like choosing to believe the worst in you is stronger than all the good.

we are not inherently evil creatures

but we do have evil inside of us.

the thing to remember here though

is the copious amounts of good that are also in us.

there cannot be good without the bad

there cannot be happiness without the struggles

there cannot be friends without faith in others

and there cannot be a solution or an absolution without the drive to change or try harder.

"fake it 'til you make it" I always say

you are stronger than this

you can handle anything life throws at you

even when you think you can't

especially when you think you can't.

so when life gives you a way to overcome what you are struggling with

take it

when you find someone who wants to bear your burdens with you

accept them

and when you finally overcome your struggle

thank those who played a part

life is so much happier when you have a support group

and you are much happier when your burdens are lifted.

you've got this

i believe in you


do you?

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
