What's New in


All life has came into being
When did our hobbies turned into ones
And life lost it's meaning?

Pick up your book and read
Scared to face the realities
We create a new one instead
Hoping we can run
From the world and ourselves

Blast the music so loud
Left with aching ears and head
Trying to escape all the Voices
That speak aloud
Every time you lay in your bed

You'd rather stay alone
In your room
Turn on the same show
And click resume
Than to go out
Only to feel
There's no place
For you to be

We wake up everyday and seek
But are Distractions
the way to live
Are we even alive?
Or just trying to breathe
Hoping one day these distractions
Will be our peace

3 "I Need You Alive Things"

Three Things that say "I need You Alive"

1.Family member. Whoever you have cherish them. If you can hug them. Call or text. Reach out. Thank them for being in your corner. Thank yous are so powerful.

2.Pet. I have a dog. The love of my life and adds some needed structure to my day. Also someone to talk to. You can have a cat, gerbil, ferret, even a fish. The key is something you need to take care of.

3.A plant. This is my favorite because it is the easiest and you can see the results. Look into getting a plant that is suited for where you live.

*** Some suggest three: one for sight, smell, and one you can eat.

Hope this helps!

Stay strong. You are worth. You are not alone! #selfcare #MentalHealth #Men #Distractions

Books to distract when you feel raw.

I usually like fantasy, mystery, or romance titles but when I had a really bad episode and could barely get out of bed I needed something that would distract but not set me off, my sister gave me the book At Home in Mitford by Jan Karon. It’s a sweet simple series about a small town pastor. I’m not religious and this book is not preachy it’s just a comforting distraction with everyday people and problems without triggering content.
The audible is great as well. #Books #Distractions


What comes in your mind first when you think of plants? #Plants #Motivation #Distractions

For me plants mean a lot. Whenever I can, I go out in nature. Whenever I can't, I'm happy to be surrounded by the ones I got at home. They make me feel home, they are often the reason why I get up. They put a smile on my face even on bad days, when there is a new sprout to discover or a new leaf or a even a flower. My favourites are propagation and seeds. To just watch them growing. Plant projects always motivate me.


I need more books!

Okay friends, I often use reading as a distraction from my chronic pain and migraines. As I’m sure a lot of you guys do. I’m out of my to be read stack so I thought you guys might have some recommendations! I love mysteries, crime novels, and magic (elves, gnomes, wizards, etc.)
A couple of things I’ve read are
The Infernal Devices series by Cassondra Clare
The Lily Bard Mysteries by Charlaine Harris
The ABC series by Sue Grafton

Thanks in advance! ❤️

Recently I showed you some of my handmade cards and today I’m showing some of my handmade jewelry pieces but I keep on learning how to adapt and creating As my motor function and I love to continue to worsen but these are some of the bracelet that I made in the past few days for breast cancer awareness and for our zebra pride bracelets and then I learned of a way of putting a pin backing to the myintent tokens! Pretty cool because they will stamp my apparent superpower which I don’t know if that was ability to inspire but apparently I’ve been told is more of my positive energy so I stamped positive energy on it with some happy faces.
