Positive Social Media App!

Published September 22, 2019 by Shay Taree

Trust me I know that this is a weird title for a blog post but just hear me out. I know that social media gets a lot of attention now a days about being pretty bad for a persons mental health. I also can agree to this since at times when I go on Instagram and Facebook I start to compare my friends lives to my own.

But I think there are some positive social media apps that don’t cause me this kind of stress. For me that app is Pinterest. I know that many people use Pinterest to look for inspiration when it comes to recipes, decor, and just ideas in general. For me I’ve also found this to be the case but there is so much more.

I’ve used Pinterest to look up exercises, find interesting articles, find journal prompts, and also to find quotes that I find inspiring. All of these things have helped me to cultivate a positive attitude and also to keep me focused on goals and also day dreaming of what I hope for my life.

Pinterest doesn’t seem to thrive on likes, follows, etc. Yes it does have those aspects such as other people can pin things you pin and also can follow your boards. But it doesn’t cause me anxiety if no one pins a post or doesn’t follow my board. This could be because I truly mostly post the things I like and not things I hope will get likes or follows.

Another great thing is that your boards or pictures that appear depend on things you’ve pinned before and you can choose to hide images if it’s things you don’t enjoy.

I definitely recommend checking out this app if you haven’t already. Yes I know another social media app but this app is different than the others at least to me that seems to be the case.

Has Your Hobby Positively Influenced Your Life?

Published September 10, 2019 by Shay Taree

When I saw this question online I figured that this would be a great topic since for me it’s definitely a yes.

Before I literally just watched anime because it was something that I enjoyed but now it’s turned into much more than that. Anime has caused me to branch out and do things that I never thought that I would do.

Because of anime it’s caused me to start a YouTube channel and blog talking about it which is something I didn’t think I would do. Pursuing those things is something that I never thought was possible because I didn’t know what to talk about. But now it’s opened up so many opportunities such as podcasts, meeting some of my favorite voice actors, and of course meeting so many new friends in this community.

It’s also helped me make friends outside of the online community. I didn’t realize that so many of my friends liked anime and now I have other friends to go to cons with.

Another thing that it helped me out with is confidence in not caring what people think about my hobby. Plus it’s also helped me to embrace the other hobbies that I’ve learned to enjoy such as self care, reading, and also other nerdy topics like comic books and video games.

So have any of your hobbies positively influenced your life? Comment your answer and I’m very interested in reading what you all have to say.

2nd Channel Update!

Published July 26, 2019 by Shay Taree

So about a month ago I decided to start a 2nd channel where I talk about things like positivity and just overall motivational topics. But I’ve decided to at this time put that channel on hold.

What I plan to do instead is upload my motivational Monday videos onto my anime channel and try and relate it to anime topics. Also to do some lifestyle video but also relate it to anime. The reason why I plan to do this is because I know that many of us get inspired by anime or other nerdy genres and I want to explore this more.

But remember that I still do plan to do more reviews since I still enjoy watching anime and reading manga. I can’t wait to continue on this journey with everyone. Also I do plan to bring my 2nd channel back but I’m figuring out what exactly I plan to do with it.

Feel free to leave your ideas below or and ideas you would like to see on my anime channel!

How I Stay Positive

Published May 23, 2019 by Shay Taree

I know that everywhere you look there are always people, quotes, and everything in between telling you to stay positive. I also know that staying positive can be very difficult especially when things just aren’t going right. Trust me I definitely know this feelings but I do have some little tricks I use to try and stay positive.

Think of something exciting: It can be anything that’s happening that day, that week, or that month. It can be anything that I truly can’t wait for. Usually this takes my mind off of what is making me sad or upset for at least a little while.

Stay off social media: I notice that sometimes the feelings of negativity I have stem from social media. I start to scroll through pictures on Facebook and Instagram which starts the comparison game. I know that it’s difficult to not be on social media but try using an app that makes you happy such as playing a game or if you can try doing something that doesn’t require your phone like reading a book, writing, or anything else that you love.

Journal: Speaking of writing, one of the things I definitely do everyday is journal. I journal in the mornings before I start my day and I also journal at night. The reason why I journal is to set my intention for the day and also so that I can get any unwanted feelings or thoughts out of my head and on paper. It can definitely be a soothing and wonderful thing. If you like I can use a blog post dedicated to my journaling habits.

Spend time with people: Now when I mean spend time with people I mean spend time with people that inspire you. These people help to lift you up and they also make you feel at ease with who you are. I know for me I definitely have these people that I turn to. Even if you can’t spend time with them in person maybe you can talk to them on the phone or send them a text. Also feel free to let them know how you’re feeling. Usually talking to someone else can also help you put things in perspective and help you love/like yourself again. This can also be helpful if your not one for journaling.

Those are just some of the things I do to try and stay positive and I hope that these things help you. Also one thing I want to make sure I add is that I’m not saying that you should ever brush aside your feelings. I’m just trying to give helpful tips that I use to get you out of that slump. But it’s okay to feel these feelings and your feelings are valid. So if you have a day where you just feel sad it’s okay to feel that.

But let me know what you think of this blog post by commenting down below and also let me know if you have any topics you would like me to discuss!

Finding Your Life Purpose

Published May 21, 2019 by Shay Taree

Finding your life purpose is something that I feel like many of us continue to search for. Sometimes we think it’s one thing but then it turns out to be another.

What made me think of this topic is because of a book I’m currently listening to which is called “The Greater You” by Trent Shelton. In this book he starts out talking about how he knew his purpose was to help people and he thought it would be through football. Well football didn’t end up working out and he ended up doing motivational speaking and that turned out to be his life purpose and what he was meant to do.

For me at the age of 28 almost 29 I still don’t know what my life purpose is or what I’m meant to do. Right now I’m currently working a pretty good job but I’ve always thought that I was meant for more but I just don’t know what. I do know that I enjoy helping others and putting a smile on their face.

So far one of the things that I’ve done that makes me feel like I might be heading in the right direction is by doing YouTube and trying to keep up with this blog. I feel like sharing my love for anime on YouTube and also my experiences when it comes to anxiety, trying to spread positivity, and also just anything else I can think of is putting me in the right direction but sometimes I don’t know.

There are days where I feel just so lost and feel like I should just give up but then I think about what I would be doing instead and it makes me want to continue. This is because when I see my thoughts going that route I realize that I would be very bored and even more loss if I didn’t have this blog or my YouTube channel.

Right now that seems to be the thing I’m praying about the most and that’s finding my life purpose and pursuing that. I hope that the Lord points me in the right direction soon. But now I want to know your thoughts on this topic. Do you know your life purpose? Are you like me and still trying to figure it out? If you do know your life purpose then how did you find it and how did you know for sure?

Comment down below and let me know. I’m definitely interested to know what everyone has to say. Also feel free to comment any questions you have or any topics you would like me to talk about on here or even my YouTube channel if your an anime fan.

See you tomorrow!
