Hello guys and gals!! Today I want to talk about how to channel anger in a more positive way. This is something I struggle with a lot. I struggled a lot with it in the fall because of all the tension that came along with the presidential election, and I struggled a lot this summer with some of my friends. My phone has always made it so hard for me to handle anger. When I was angry, I would instantly turn to Twitter, my finsta, or a nasty text. None of that ended well. I figured if I'm struggling with it, someone else has to be too, so I decided I'd blog about it!! Today I'm going to share a better way to handle anger that you and I can start to use when feelings of frustration start to creep up on us.
As some of you may know, comparison has been something I've struggled with a ton recently. Feelings of I'm not good enough have been clouding my thoughts. I haven't been able to think straight, so took a break from Instagram for a few days. After feeling much more secure with who I was and where I am in the moment, I signed back on. As I was scrolling through my Insta stories, I saw that @soulscripts had a new blog post up. Soul Scripts is a Christian based blog, but even if you aren't a Christian, I suggest you take a look at this quick article.
Hey guys!! If you saw the title of this article on my Instagram story, you're probably pretty confused, but don't worry, I'll explain later. Social media is such a huge part of our lives. For the most part, I believe it has a huge capability to bring about a lot of good and positive change. Recently social media hasn't been having that same affect on me, and I wanted to talk about why I haven't been loving it so much lately and how I've been trying to fix it.
Y'ALL. I don't know if any of you guys have ever watched Bob Ross, BUT YOU NEED TO. He has a show on Netflix and I was watching it with my friends last night and it was amazing. He's a painter and in each 30 minute episode of his show he creates a masterful piece of artwork. It's actually amazing to watch because he just makes these random shapes all over the canvas but in the end it turns out to be the most amazing masterpiece you've ever seen.
Friends!! If you're like me, you're starting to realize that summer is halfway through and you haven't even touched your summer work. The lit books are collecting dust on your desk. The math worksheets have been printed, but are currently shoved out of sight because you have literally no idea what a logarithmic identity is or how to even begin to tackle the infinite pages of math you don't understand. Sound familiar?
