Get Your Act Together!

Recently I've been thinking about the phrase, "Get you act together!" Mainly on the word act. You see, I've been thinking that this phrase suggests that we act rather than be ourselves. The more I thought about it, that more I realized it was true. I thought about when I was usually told this and I came up with a top three list:
1. When I'm crying or fuming mad
2. When I'm having a panic attack
3. When I'm being emotional
You see, we are humans, and humans have emotions. However, when we as humans express these emotions we are told to get our act together. Personally, I think this means putting up a wall so no one knows any part of you. Imagine how much better of a human race we'd have if we all expressed how we were feeling all the time; imagine how much better and more peaceful the earth would be if we accepted that we all have emotions and  that is a part of life we don't need to hide.

This blog is slowly transitioning into a lifestyle blog to be honest, so I hope you all don't mind! Before we get into this post I'd like to say that this is a bit difficult for me to write, but as a person who has panic attacks and feels extremely stressed all the time I know how comforting it is to read an article written by another sufferer who feels the same as you. My favorite article is by Zoe Sugg (Zoella) and can be read by clicking this link

What is Anxiety?

Let's talk about anxiety and panic attacks. This week I've been incredibly stressed and have had two mild panic attacks and three not so bad panic attacks. If you don't have really bad anxiety I would love to describe it the best I can for you. 

Everyone has anxiety. Anxiety is that feeling of dread you get when you are anticipating something or are really stressed.  While all of us have anxiety we all react differently. Some people react really well to anxiety and can go through life just fine. Others, myself included, are affected by anxiety a lot worse. When I feel anxious, depending on how bad the anxiety is, it often results in a panic attack.

2014 Reflections and 2015 Goals

Hello Everybody,
Today I thought I'd do a reflection of 2014 and welcome 2015 by setting some goals. I got most of these questions from this link.

1. What was your biggest life lesson this year and what did you learn?
You outgrow people, and that's okay. 

2. What theme kept recurring for you this year?
