Hello Loves,
It’s the end to the week and a start to the weekend. Was it a great week? Or is it the start to a great weekend? well it depends on your mental health status!! The way we do things and our behaviors are shaped by our mental health status. Healthy minds create healthy thoughts and shapes our behaviors accordingly. Therefore if you are mentally well then by all means you will feel better physically, contribute more to society and maintain healthy behaviors. It is important to acknowledge or recognize when someone around us has a mental health problem as early detection and treatment can save them from further treacherous behaviors. The simplest of things or events may push someone to the edge or so close that they develop anxiety attacks, panic attacks, sleeplessness, sweat, irregular body temperature, withdrawal from others, incoherent speech, salad talk, attraction to dangerous behaviors. Mental health education and awareness should be taught in school to everyone, as well as posters should be everywhere to encourage maintaining good mental health. After all it is vital to our success in life so many shortcomings can be attributed to a break down or shift in routine without any source of support.

20121219-052459.jpgHey Lovely Peeps,
Happy December 19th, a lovely morning indeed…… I must say I’ve been thinking and it seems as if life is like living in a circle. People often do things they say they won’t do, even after swearing off on them. Relationships that ended most times rekindle. Marriages often end in divorce sometimes quite painfully, then the couples realize how much easier it is to live with each other than with out each other and they end up back together often remarrying. Some people say the same things in different ways every day. Some people hope for change yet they live with fears of improbability. Living in a circle often because people are not honest with themselves, care more about others than for themselves, living with the hope that with time things will change. People often need to realize though as humans our minds controls us therefore if they don’t truly believe then change is improbable and they will continue their life living in a circle. Change is evident only when people know what they want, they focus and they work towards those goals or else they will be displeased with their outcomes and continuously live in a circle whilst blaming others for their own shortcomings.

Thoughts control actions, good thought processes are most likely to produce great results, while distorted thought processes will have people living in a circle. Thanks for reading my blog…..
