An entire sea of water can’t sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship. Similarly, the negativity of the world can’t put you down unless you allow it to get inside you.

I don’t know if I’m seeming a bit broken record like with these but I was just so lost last year and scared and I don’t want to relive those emotions but I can’t let myself forget them either. I felt like I was drowning and I refused to acknowledge it. And I’m still scared sometimes, especially when I tell someone in my real life about how I feel. But somehow just releasing it into the virtual makes it easier to have the confidence to talk about the things I consider dark and scary. I can’t forget that I’m the person that felt these things, but I don’t want to be the person that feels the need to find it.
“If I am honest I am sad a lot lately and everything is starting to really feel pointless and sometimes hopeless. I don’t feel excited about anything and I am just really tired of everything lately. There are so more back of my mind things but over all these are the biggies, so maybe I should stop thinking of the shame and get thinking about talking to a doctor or someone.”
Turns out evanescent is about passing and memory so it was kind of hard to think of a good picture to represent that. I chose this picture I took while flying over the ocean during sunset. It’s just that some of my favourite memories involve traveling and well being up in the sky in a plane it’s part of the journey. Inching closer and closer to your destination all the while passing through the air, above the mountains, the waters, the clouds. As you get older the magic starts to fade a bit but still I love having a window seat and watching the world pass by while having a birds eye view.
I’m a little scared when it comes to well all kinds of exposure. Especially in the sense of being emotionally or physically exposed, it makes me kind of nervous. I mean when I think exposure my mind parallels it with vulnerability and being vulnerable is one of my greatest fears. Or more accurately being rejected after showing my vulnerability is what I fear. It’s just that when you expose a part yourself I feel like you are sharing a part of you that is more personal and being rejected for that would be unbearably terrifying. I feel like that’s one of my biggest obstacles for when it comes to becoming close with other people. I’m scared to show that I am weak or that I need them and that always ends up causing problems, for me more than anyone else. I mean even when I am becoming so determined to put myself out there more i still block myself for that reason, the reason of me not wanting to be vulnerable. I don’t know if there is some big reason or cause as to why I am like this but it’s not a quality that I love and it makes me more scared about the future and my relations with people than I naturally am. It might just be that the future and vulnerability are my two greatest fears in life.
I am a proud Punjabi and a proud Canadian. I wanted to find the perfect picture to represent my heritage, but it was a lot harder than I thought it would be. I love my culture and my religion; I love the fact that I can look back and find that I not only have one history to be proud of but two. I’m not sure if I found the perfect image I was looking for to represent that part of who I am, the picture I was hoping to find or take that showed my heritage and what I love about it but I guess this one still works. My Punjabi heritage is what I was born with but my love for Canada and Sikhism is what I was born to, it is what makes my heritage.

Barbie: Star Light Adventure -When the stars begin to dim and lose their dance in the sky, the galaxy becomes in jeopardy and everything changes. Barbie, a recognized, talented hoverboarder, is summed to the royal planet to be part of a cosmic journey to save the universe. She is recruited to an elite rescue team, filled with talented individuals and together, along with Barbie’s pet sidekick, Pupcorn, set off on a mission to save the stars and thus the universe.
I’ve watched multiple times now and have to admit that I just can’t help but totally love it. It feels like a new kind of Barbie movie and it was awesome. Not only was it visually stunning but it has a really sweet story and a good message. It’s about believing in yourself and following your heart, with a really fun story to show it. And like I mentioned before, visually it is absolutely gorgeous, this is by far the best animation I have seen done by the Barbie franchise. Between all of this and just how fun it is to enjoy I have to say that this movie really went above and beyond what I expected.
Personally, I think Barbie movies have been a bit hit and miss lately but this was a definite hit. If you are looking for something a little different and like Barbie movies then I have to say this is worth watching. To some it may seem cliched at times but if you ask me it is definitely worth a watch.

This prompt is kind of interesting. Usually, when it comes to prompts I just babble on about something related to it but this one, well there are so many ways I could go with this. See the reason that this is so interesting to me is because of my family. I was talking to my mom recently about how much of a pushover she is and how easily she was manipulated by others, especially when I was a kid. This is more of a past thing for her because well I’m incredibly stubborn like my dad was, and I try to keep her from getting taken advantage to the best of my abilities. Now back to the control thing, it’s like a chunk of my family is just desperate to be considered the powerful one and in return make them act manipulative and controlling, and to add they suck at it. It’s like they want all the control but then when they don’t get it they just grab everything they can and just look over you smuggle. Honestly though, that is not even close to what family should be, right. It shouldn’t be about being about having the most power and being in the most. When I think family I think of the people that should love you no matter what, the people that you can lean on and count on for support and vice versa.
You know what the real joke is, the fact that I’m pretty sure half the reason they do it is for the desire of approval but the problem is that those are the action that makes people not only dislike them but make them down right try to avoid them. Moral of the story, you have to get, because you not maybe being kind won’t get you ahead but it will keep you alive by giving you a life. It’s a fact of life, life is better when you have people there to enjoy it with.
