Something came up in my life that I never in a million years thought would resurface. It was something that strongly reminded myself both of how much I have and how much I haven’t changed. It’s like the world was playing with the the way that I used to feel and the situation I was on. Looking back at it was all so abstract.

There are so many times in life when you look back and you just realize how different you are, how much you have grown as a person but there is always a part of your past-self that is whispering forbidden words into your ear. Maybe you aren’t so different after all.

It is so easy to call yourself stupid for what you once thought or felt but as soon as you put yourself back into those same shoes it all makes sense, almost as if you are sucked back into the same situation you hated with all of your heart.

Think about it this way; you learn and grow everyday, no matter the situation that decided to show up again. You’ll be presented with two options when it happens, either you smile, laugh and let go or you stop in the middle of your tracks and just think about how things would have played out if it would have gone the way you wanted.

But it didn’t and you survived. Everything happens for a reason and the fact that the reminder might have poped up might have just been to show you how much you have grown or to give you a glimpse of what is to come. Never look down upon yourself, past, present or future.

Sincerely,
Melissa

(This is not a sales pitch though it might sound like one.)

The law of attraction, a subject that has broadly been spoken about throughout the years, especially since The Secret came out. Some people might feel as though it might be stupid and others might believe in it all heartily as I do. But what is it?

The law of attraction is the concept of you being able to shape your life by the positivity of your thoughts, something that may seem as something hard to grasp. It might seem like a concept that is out of this world and one only for the optimists of this world. How many times have you thought about something and it just pops in front of you out of thin air? It has all happened one time or another. This is the Law of Attraction at work, doing its thing and bringing whatever you summoned into your life to you.

Many of you might have already stopped reading because it sounds like hippie talk, something that I once thought too until I thought a bit harder. Whenever I thought about something real hard, I though about it truly happening it did and it seems to be the only (somewhat) logical answer. This is exactly why the happy people around us always seem to have the most positive outlook on life because they have attracted it all into their lives.

I know it sounds weird but you truly have to look deep within yourself and search for answers to have a better life. You have to learn to put time aside to just be with yourself and do whatever makes you feel better. When you start setting that regular time aside for yourself you will notice how you growing more and more thankful for everything around you, making you happy for what you have. Thus your life will be more positive because you are letting your positivity sine though.

As said so many times before, you have the power to make your dream life, no matter what. You just have to set time aside to shape your life. Be conscious and make every single second of your life count.

Eating disorder, body dysmorphia, a teen body has a lot of names. We see behaviour that is not healthy coming from young people when it comes to food and their bodies. The times you see someone starving themselves, calling themselves fat or training their life away is alarming. Quite honestly, it is behaviour that is noticed daily. There is this obsession with having to eat and exercise a certain way to achieve the bodies that we constantly see in media and everywhere we look.

Do not take me wrong, in no way do I mean that you should not strive for a healthier life with good, nutritious food and exercise for more energy and vitality. This will of course lead to a good looking body in the long term, one that might look like the people we see on Instagram.
What I am saying is that it should not be something you obsess over. I used to be there. I would hate myself for missing a workout or if I ate something that was a bit more on the sugary side. Whenever that happened I saw it as a failure and that lead that period of my life to be one where I felt so incredibly bad. It was not healthy.

Balance is key. Eat that square of chocolate a day if the bulk of your diet is healthy. Skip that workout if you really are tired, you’ll be back at it tomorrow. It is only when you find balance that you feel good and it all comes naturally.

No, I am not there 100% there myself but I am working on it everyday. It just upsets me to see boys and girls around me, looking at themselves and hating every inch of what they see, punishing themselves for every mistake they make. No one is perfect and you can change how you look like to feel your best but appreciate where you are without starving yourself and without looking down at yourself.

You are beautiful and you are worth it.

We all have our dream life, the life that we ultimately want. We all have this picture in our heads about how it is to look like and how it is going to feel but we always forget one detail; not to worry.

This thought has dawned on me for the last couple of days. The intense worry that we feel is completely ridiculous and misguiding at the same time as it is a feeling that lurs us in. We have the tendency to go for the rational thinking of our worry but we are capable of more and we know it deep inside us. you just have to have the courage to believe in yourself and your power to attract what we want into our lives.

I know some of you might feel as though things like The Law Attraction or religion are just jibber jabber but we have all been a part of instances when we have been though things that can not be explained. It is like when you think of something and it happens to you. You made it happen whether you want to believe it or not.

You just have to realize that you make your life, do not let life make your decisions but decide what you want to do with your life without a worry. Put life into a corner and do not let life open up another path. If you want something badly go for it with a positive mindset and discard all of the worries. You are strong and you know it. I am on this journey with you.

There seems to be this fear throughout the world at the time, a fear based on everything happening in the world. It is like a large portion of the world’s population is scared for the world to end…or at least that a lot is turning bad. Whether it is about inequality, LGBT rights or even politics in general.

What scares me the most is that no one really seems to care about the one thing that could lead our species into extinction; the environment. With the climate change that is occurring there may not be any of us left to fight for further rights. Earth has always made it, has always been able to recover but it’s the species living on the plantet that need various conditions to expand their race.

Aren’t you scared? The rising sea waters may lead us into moving further into land and we are already overpopulated. Where are we going to go? Yes, there has been various fluctuations in the temperature of the planet but it has not been like this before.

The rising temperatures can naturally be reversed if we let it, meaning that we have to keep the temperature at where it is and not worsen the conditions. What may not be so clear is that we can all aid in this fight. Even though it may seem pointless for you as individual to change a habit it could help so much more than you think. If you make an example other people are bound to follow.

It is us that control the politics and the politicians within. They feed off our needs and need our voices to succeed. Together we could establish laws, putting forth taxes and such that in turn forces us as the population to control our consumption of various different things.

We have to continue to educate each other on the consequences of the change for it is only together that we can make a real change. Even if it would only be The US that would start acting on the environment as Sweden has the world would be getting into a better place.

We can do it together, we can make the world a better place.
