To Those Who Doubted Me

To Those Who Doubted Me

I will succeed.


I am a very impressionable person. I have a bad habit of allowing other people to project their feelings onto me. I want people to like me so badly because I, for some reason, cannot like myself unless everyone likes me, that I do not form my own opinions and just adopt other people's. It's super unhealthy, I know, but when you live a good portion of your life being secretly hated by those you thought were your friends, the line between healthy and unhealthy tends to blur.

To Those Who Doubted Me,

Thank you

Thank you for making me want to work harder

Thank you for making me think that I wasn't good enough

Thank you for making me think that I should doubt myself

I'm sorry to say it did not work

I'm sorry to say that I am good enough

I'm actually not sorry for that, though

Your tactics to make me think that I can't do it

Your plan to make think that my failure is inevitable

Well, it failed

I am happy

I am alive

I have people who love me

There is nothing that you can possibly do to stop me

I will succeed

I will make it

Even if you do not want it

I wish you the best

Even if you do not reciprocate the feeling.

Good luck.

Love, Me

Do not let others tell you how to feel. You are the only person that can decide your future. The only thing you really have control over is you, your opinions, and nothing else. Believe in yourself because you hold the only opinion that matters. Live your life how you want to live it. It is yours and it is the only one that you are gonna get, so make it great.

10 Things To Do When Feeling Creative

A list of things to do when your creative juices are flowing and you need to put them to good use!

A list of ten things that I do when I'm feeling creative--some ideas for you!

1. Paint

Head to a craft store and purchase some canvases, paint brushes, and paints and paint yourself some unique, beautiful pictures!

2. Slime

Make a plethora of different homemade slimes! This can be super fun and super messy if that's what you're in the mood for!

There's so much you can do with pottery! You can paint, create, decorate and more! Get yourself some pottery clay and make something awesome!

Scrap-booking is one of my favorite things to do! The best part is, you can literally use anything you want because its so free!

Feeling creative with your words? Write a short story, a poem, a song, this is just as creative as any other crafting.

7. Makeup

No matter what some people may say, makeup is definitely art to me. Practice some new looks if you want, or try a new product. Makeup is never supposed to look one certain way! There are no rules with it.

8. Redecorate

Feeling bored with your surroundings and also feeling creative? Rearrange your room, clean up, and redecorate if you want!

New clothes, new style? Try some new looks!

Ocean Child: A Poem

i am an expanse of power, and don't you forget it.


i am an expanse of blue

a scene of serene

a bittersweet blend of blithe contentedness and rootless melancholy

i am the ocean's child

both vast and modest

i am the playful rippling waves that tickle the webs of your feet

i am the roaring black current that will swallow you whole in its unsympathetic arms

i am measured by the duplicity of my disposition

saccharine and sinister

pleasant and powerful

i am in constant flux and flow

ebbing and eroding

i am everything all at once

i am ever present and ever changing

i am a beautiful and beastly force of nature

and i am in want of nothing.
