Being Your True Self!

Published May 10, 2019 by Shay Taree

So I wanted to talk about being your true self because I’m sure that many of us change how we are depending on who we are around. Now I know sometimes we have reasons like if we are in a professional setting or things like that but I mean like holding back positive parts of ourself that we love about ourselves.

Now I know that we a lot of times can’t be our complete selves and a lot of times feel out the room to find out what is considered acceptable behavior. I think that’s okay but I mostly mean like holding back talking about positive hobbies or things like that. Trust me I know that talking about personalities and being yourself can go many different routes.

I can honestly say that I do this mostly because I know that I would be made fun of or looked at differently due to these parts. The parts I’m mostly talking about are the nerdy and talkative parts of myself. I let these parts out when I’m around people who truly allow me to be myself.

But there are certain people that I hold these parts back with. This is mostly because I’ve let these parts out before and I was either made fun of (friends) or told later that those parts made me seem childish (certain family).

Well I’m here to say that I’m learning overtime that I don’t care about what people say about these parts of myself. I truly love who I am and the personality that I have. If someone has an issue with that then that’s on them not on me.

Now I will say that there are moments where I still don’t feel comfortable with it depending on who the people are because it’s still a work in progress. But overall I’m realizing that the Lord made me this way for a reason and gave me this personality for a reason. So I should enjoy sharing it.

But have any of you ever felt this way? If so then what made you accept that part of yourself or what made you change? Plus do you have any advice for others? Comment down below!

Being More Open

Published May 9, 2019 by Shay Taree

I know that a lot of people wonder why a person is so open online. Also when I mean open I mean being open about their feeling, their experiences, and also just anything else you can think of. Sometimes people are comfortable with being open and I can understand that. The reason being because they may not know the people that they speak with online or they want to use their time online not focusing on what is going on in their personal lives.

For me I understand both aspects. Sometimes I enjoy being more open online especially if I feel like it would help others. Like giving them encouragement or making them feel like they aren’t alone. I do this because I know of many others online who were open and it helped me a lot.

But I understand the other aspects since I don’t always know the people who respond back and I want to keep some parts of myself private.

So what do you guys feel about this? Do you prefer to be more open online or do you like keeping personal things a little bit more secretive? Comment down below and let me know.

Meditation!

Published February 21, 2019 by Shay Taree

As I’m sure many of you have read before I’ve been trying to practice meditation. I know that for a lot of people meditation just seems like a lot of sitting and breathing but it’s a lot more than that. For me it gives me a sense of calm and let’s me focus on the things that I love and enjoy. It takes me away from the stresses of life for just a little bit and also helps me to better handle certain situations.

I decided to try meditation since I heard so much about it and the benefits that it has. Sometimes I have moments where I have a lot of anxiety and get depressed and I wanted to try something to help me handle it.

Now I tried many different apps and even YouTube for simple meditation and some worked and some didn’t. The best advice I can give is to start slow. Start with meditating for like 5 mins or less and then increasing time from there.

Currently I use an app for Insight timer and you can use the meditations for free but there is a paid version for $9.99 and includes some really interesting courses. I’ve taken a few that have interested me and they have been pretty helpful.

So try out some meditation practices and start slow. Also don’t get mad at yourself if you lose focus it happens.

Self-Confidence & Self Care Journey!

Published January 22, 2019 by Shay Taree

So since the beginning of this year I’ve been continuing to be on this journey of self-confidence and self care. The main reason why I’ve decided to do this is because I’ve been wanting to stop really depending on how people think about me and start trying to love myself how I am. Plus I’ve been wanting to have my own self-care routine.

So one of the things I started doing was greatly lowering my social media usage. I know from before I mentioned doing this but over the holidays I definitely fell off the wagon. But now from the hours of 10:00 pm and 9:00 am I don’t allow myself to use it. This makes where in the mornings when I’m getting ready for work I’m unable to check social media.

This has also allowed myself to do other things during the morning that is more helpful for me. Such as journaling, meditating, and working out. If you like I can make a video soon about my morning routine and self care routine. But so far this has been helpful for me since now I don’t waste time just helplessly scrolling through my feed.

As for mediating and journaling both of these things have been super helpful and I’m excited to do them more. I’m trying this meditation app called Insight Timer and I’m using the classes on there to work on certain mindsets that I want to change. When I combine that with journaling it makes me feel so happy during the day and much more calmer.

But those are the things that I’ve been doing during this new year. What have you been doing to make yourself either physically or emotionally better? would you like to see that video where I discuss my morning routine or the apps that I use on my phone that help with this process? Comment down below and let me know.

Have a great day!
