Be willing to share your story and you will find peace
Hello, friends! How are you doing on this lovely Monday! Today I went out and about for a bit and had some quality time with the folks. As always, it was nice! Especially since my sweet mom always feeds me well. All healthy food ofcourse. Mom was making fries, but I didn’t touch any of that, because I am still trying to lose some weight. So, I just enjoyed some vegetables, which was broccoli, and some delicious fish! Basically what I usually eat, but mom makes it more delicious.
We also went out and do some grocery shopping. My mom asked me to go with her, because my dad isn’t very mobile at the moment. Ofcourse I went and helped out! I also got some things for myself while I was at the grocery store.
Dad and I were looking at a new, low price digital cameras online. There are some out there that are nice and affordable, but I have to safe up a little bit first. Currently I am vlogging with my old FlipCam and to be honest it is not that bad. It’s just temporary. But my dad could see if there’s a way to pitch in. Because he is the best dad, ever! I love my parents. Every time I am at my folks, I always acknowledge my gratitude for them.
I went home around 8pm, took the train with a bag full of groceries. When I was home I could unwind and do my thing. I took a shower, edited my vlog and here I am now… at peace! :)
Okay, let’s talk Iyanla! Because currently I am just obsessed and fascinated with her. I finished reading “Until Today” and it’s such an amazing book, for real! I got another book by Iyanla in iBooks, called “Peace From Broken Pieces”. I just started reading it and I am at page 24 right now. It’s really good! And I love how Iyanla is so open to share HER story!
I was watching one of her videos on YouTube and she was saying that when someone is open enough to tell their story, it may be a good help for others. And she’s right! While I was having my evening shower I was thinking about how I share my story and experiences through vlogging, talking about my depression, anxiety and the period where I suffered psychosis. Also showing off my tears and talking about how I had suicidal thoughts. And in the past two years I have received some feedback and messages from people, saying they relate and understand. And they share their story with me! It’s really fulfilling in a way, because I love to hear about others stories and help them by being a listening ear and provide comfort.
Sharing your story, whatever it is that blocks you from living YOUR life, is a starting point for true healing. Which will lead to inner peace. But like I have mentioned, you HAVE TO BE WILLING! Open your heart and mind and BE WILLING. Sharing your story will help you, but it might also help someone else. Recognize your current pattern in life and own up to it. Don’t be afraid to surrender or be vulnerable. Surrender with your head up high when you’re finding out the core! And you will see the process will lead to healing. Be SELF-FULL! And take it step by step. That’s what I have learned. And I still wish I learned how to deal or handle it earlier. Then I wouldn’t have wasted three years at therapy. But it is what it is. Everything that happened to me, every thought and experience I had is all a lesson. It didn’t happen to me. It happened FOR ME. And the same goes for you. You have a purpose, like I have and everyone else. What is also important is to be truthful, because truth will set you free.
I am not a spiritual expert, I am not a psychologist, but I am learning alot from Iyanla Vanzant. It is common universal law. And I just want to share what I have learned and pass it on! :)
So, if there’s anyone out there who feels they are stuck, try to open your heart and mind and most importantly BE WILLING, and share your story. With someone you know, who you trust. You can even drop me a line if you want, and I will read it and respond.
I was browsing through my wonderful iPhone and I took a few cam whore pictures that I haven’t posted on here. So, here they are!
Just me :)
Me and my cousin Cindy, when she took me out for drinks. I needed that! :)
Yes, I will!

Chillin’ in bed, watching Iyanla videos :)
Well, that’s all for today. I hope everyone is doing well! Ta-ta for now! :)
