Stress Relief For Everyone

Stress is just one of those parts of life that we all have to deal with. There’s a vast number of potential sources of stress. Some say that stress is a good thing because it keeps us sharp. Others say that we should aim to be stress-free in all areas of our lives.

I say, a stress-free life should be aimed for but as long as you give a damn about anything on the Earth, you will probably experience some stress whether you want to or not.

Have you heard of Decision Fatigue? That’s when you make a lot of decisions during the day and you begin to feel exhausted because of it. In those moments, someone else coming up with a good idea can be a huge relief.

Sometimes adults can be quick to shut down an idea because it comes from someone younger than them. But, speaking from experience, children can have great ideas about action or how to view something.

People Are Being Kidnapped

Can you imagine how scary it would be for someone to snatch you take you away?! How fast your world could change in 1 minute of being caught off guard?

I had a scary moment a couple of days ago. A kidnapping scare rocked my world!

At the end of this post Ill share a screenshot of the text I sent my Sister telling her the story.

All of us, I think we need to be more aware of the scary reality that kidnappings, abductions, and human trafficking is very real.

Some reports say that the United States is number 1 is child sex trafficking. It makes me uncomfortable because this is my home country but facts are facts.

Dead bodies are turning up with their organs missing, too. That’s called organ harvesting. It happens.

I live in the state of Virginia and since last year there have been over 300 cases of missing children. These cases have not been solved. WHERE ARE THESE CHILDREN???

I feel like I could cry typing this. If my son Legendary was to go missing, I would not be able to function in any way, shape, or form. We really need to look out for each other in every way that we can.

No, it’s not just children – women too. They’re being abducted. Men too, honestly.

In general, as World citizens, we really need to be more aware of our surroundings and do whatever we can to stop this madness.

Lucky for me, my son and I are fine. Someone said that I overreacted so you read the text below and let me know what you think.

The Line Between Professional and Personal Blog Posts

As I aim to have a website with helpful information, I can’t deny the fact that I’m also influenced by other websites that I follow here on WordPress. Those are mostly the ones that are blog-type and anecdotal.

As a writer, and as someone who doesn’t like to burden my friends with my thoughts and feelings, I find myself turning more to my website, Easy Light Sources, to express myself.

All in all, my doing so is not particularly a bad thing. I guess I am aware of it now because when I first began writing for Easy Light Sources, I made a mental choice to not write in first person for the majority of the content.

But right now in my life, I’m going through a lot. My entire family is. Some of the happier topics that I have planned, I’m actually struggling with.

After this post on completion, I’m still feeling pretty good. But, things are changing, now.

Changing how?

Spiritual Readings indicate it’s all good on all fronts. But the details of reality don’t look so well. Personally I am confused – how much is mind over matter? I don’t know who to trust, which is also a hard reality to deal with.

Well, that’s me talking about myself some more.

When Easy Light Sources started, it was food focused – fruits and vegetables. I’d like to go back to that but my life is in a different place.

I have Easy Light Sources book manuscripts I’d like to have printed but I don’t have the cash. I’d also like to upgrade this website to sell ebooks but as they say, it takes money to make money.

Discussing this with someone else ended up with them offering me roles in their adult movies. He even offered to pay for me to have breast implants.

As tempting as fast money is, it’s the integrity of my mind and soul that won’t allow that to happen. Luckily the friend respects my status as a role model and he didn’t push the opportunity too much.

There seems to be a stark contrast in terms of what I believe versus what I’m able to materialize. For this reason, I choose to only write on what I know to be real in life.

I think that authenticity is not always rewarded. Not to be fake, but there is strength in only showing the desirable sides of yourself. Especially and moreso when no one really knows who you are.

I’d really like this to be the last personal informational post. This site was not created to be a personal blog so I’ll do my best to keep it on track. Thanks, tho, for being here for me to talk too. I’ll find out later if it was for the best or worst.

Quick Tips to Party With Anxiety

Hey you guys!

I used to party a lot. Like, from Wednesday night to Monday morning, I was ready to have a good time.

My social life thrived. My responsibilities suffered.

This was before I became a Mom. Of course. And now, instead of a party for the sake of a party, the events I’m involved in now (yes, events…) are more professional and not just about letting loose. Not super buttoned up but the social responsibility is somewhat heavier.

It feels different now than it was then. Without a doubt, the responsibilities I have now when hosting do come with some anxiety when I just want to have a nice time.

What I do is pull inspiration from my care -free days to be more care -free now. It works for me and I think it’ll work for others, too.

In this case, the more simple, the better. So here are 3 tips that apply to every one and apply to every party!

1. Don’t Overthink

Yes this is common advice for anxiety but it has to be stated because it is important.

Over thinking the elements related to attending a party will stress you out.

Of course you should thoughtfully consider what you’ll wear and what the occasion is. But, your primary thoughts when it comes to attending the party should be “I’m going to have a good time.”

When we’re planning an event… Months in advance sometimes… I tell myself over and over again that I will have a nice time at this event. It works!

This mindset will carry you gracefully through the entire party, especially when something goes wrong. It’s easier to let unfortunate events roll off your back instead of letting it get you down.

Note: If you can no longer have a good time at the party, it’s okay to leave early.

2. Participate

For anxiety, the funnest parties to attend are the ones with a theme and with games and activities! If you’re attending this kind of party, go with it to the fullest extent that you can! Wear a costume and play the games!

This may sound redundant but the best way to have a good time at a party is to have a nice time!

Okay, now if you’re socially awkward, participating in activities is the best way to join in with everyone else. Even if it’s the party host asking for volunteers to bring snacks out, go ahead and volunteer!

If it’s a more casual party without a theme or games, you should probably bring a friend with you. Let the host know you’re bringing a friend.

Bringing someone gives you someone to hang with and talk to while you’re there. Make sure your friend understands this!

3. Dance

The dance floor is the safest place to be when you’re awkward at a party. It doesn’t even matter how well you dance. I’ve found that most people don’t care – only genuine assholes will laugh at someone’s dancing. Most people just want everyone to have a nice time.

On the dance floor, you won’t stand out for being alone. You can get lost in the music and get into your own zone.

Don’t even worry about what’s playing. If it has a beat, you can dance to it.

And, you know, if it’s dark then you really have no reason to worry about it.

Dancing is good for the soul!

Okay guys, go forth and enjoy yourselves!
