Hello Everyone and Happy Monday! 🙂

We are at the last quarter of the year. I can only hope that everyone is happy or at least satisfied with the progress they made during the first eight months of 2018.

However, I know that’s not the case for most people.

At the beginning of 2018, I started a new plan to organize my life in a way that would slowly but surely help me become the best version of myself. I’m doing this with the help of the Artist of Life Workbook by Lavendaire. 

If you haven’t read my article about this and about how to be driven in life, I encourage you to take a look.

Trying to be better everyday, trying to empower yourself, heal yourself and be self-aware of your own faults and flaws can definitely take a toll on you in the long run. I’ve been doing this since January. I won’t say it’s easy or even pleasant all the time, but I do not regret my efforts.

I think most people are afraid of moving on, afraid of leaving what kills their souls and their spirits because whether it’s a toxic place or toxic relationship, it is the only thing they know. It is what they are used to.

I don’t judge them. There is nothing more terrifying than taking that first step into the unknown. Starting anew? Getting a new life? A fresh start? Those are pretty words, full of fantasy, adventure and bravery, but like a wonderful and life-changing things, they require a sacrifice.

I know what it cost to leave everything behind, even when you know leaving is the only thing left to do. The best thing for you. It’s still hurt, it’s still frightening, and it’s lonely.

I can tell you it’s worth it though. That first step? That step you take to save yourself? To find yourself, to love yourself? No matter where you go, it is always a step in the right direction.

Enjoy this Shatzi,

🙂

Song of the day

“Smalltown Boy” by Bronski Beat

Cry, boy, cry, boy, cry
Cry, boy, cry

You leave in the morning with everything you own in a little black case
Alone on a platform, the wind and the rain on a sad and lonely face

Mother will never understand why you had to leave
But the answers you seek will never be found at home
The love that you need will never be found at home

Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away

Pushed around and kicked around, always a lonely boy
You were the one that they’d talk about around town as they put you down

And as hard as they would try they’d hurt to make you cry
But you never cried to them, just to your soul
No, you never cried to them, just to your soul

Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away (Crying to your soul)
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away (Crying to your soul)
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away (Crying to your soul)
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away

Cry, boy, cry
Cry, boy, cry
Cry, boy, cry, boy, cry
Cry, boy, cry, boy, cry

Cry, boy, cry, boy, cry
Cry, boy, cry, boy, cry
Cry, boy, cry, boy, cry
Cry, boy, cry, boy, cry

You leave in the morning with everything you own in a little black case
Alone on a platform, the wind and the rain on a sad and lonely face

Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away

Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away

    1. Aww, I am deeply touched by this! I am just taking a break because the morning shift at work doesn’t let me do much this month, much less blogging. But I will be back soon, I promise!
      Thank you for your message, you just made my day. 😊💋❤️
