18 things you probably didn’t know about me!

Hey friends ! It’s my birthday y’all. I had one of the most amazing days of the year with amazing people, laughing, joking, eating and having fun. Now I’m back and thought I could write some of the things you guys probably (and most definitely) don’t know about me for the occasion, 18 things because, well i just turned legal.

  • I CAN’T sing. I don’t want to most of the time, but it’s also because I can’t. I can do 99% of the things in this planet, but singing just isn’t on the list, so please don’t ask me to have a Karaoke, sing along at the top of my lungs and all that shit (You thought right: I dislike it when people sing over songs in public –loudly- as well).
  • Whenever I speak in front of a large public, I have the biggest anxiety attack ever;it’s really terrible but each time I try to control it instead of letting it control me. Not sure if it works out each time, but It gets better with practise.
  • I had plenty of supernatural encounters in my brief 18 years of existence: I saw a Ufo in the sky while waiting for the doctor, witnessed a Poltergeist with a friend, and many more spirit related events. Was pretty scary back then. But am I scared now? Hell no. Would I play Ouija, knock on doors again or have weird ass pagan rituals? Hell no.

What’s in store for me in the direction i don’t take? – Adam Lupton

In the spider web of infinite intertwined universes, quantum mechanics instructs us that any and all possibilities are realized in one universe or another. These are the moments when everything is open, when all options are present, and all is undecided – mere destinies unfolding. Our choices shift into one plane of existence, the extension of every path still available, until we pick the red tie instead of the blue; harbor anger instead of compassion; attempt to fix it or break it; and all our possibilities collapse into the singular of what is, rippling outward from the moment of decision to affect our lives in ways unknown… The noise at the back of our mind wondering anxiously, “What’s in store for me in the direction I don’t take?”

How can the Cold Shower Therapy help you put your fears aside?

Hey folks, I decided to start the Cold Shower Therapy, commonly known as the 30 days CST. Why? Because whenever i’m about to jump into cold water (it applies to my daily life situations as well), the fear of freezing and feeling pain makes me wait for a good amount of time before doing it, or makes me decide not to jump in the end. But once i  do it, 100% of the times, i enjoy the swim and think the water is amazing.

Taking a cold shower sucks. But it rarely sucks as much as you think it will. Once you step into the water, you realize that it does suck, but not nearly as much as you thought it would. After the first few times, instead of being afraid of the cold water, you jump into it – you welcome the challenge and dare it to beat you.

The same is true with life. Taking a new direction in life is scary. Sometimes you don’t know what to do. Sometimes you’re afraid it will hurt. Then you jump and it does. A little, but not nearly as much as you thought it would. After you do it a few times (no matter how small it may seem), it gets easier and you begin to welcome the challenge and dare the impossible to beat you.

That’s cold shower therapy. 28 days of cold showers. 28 days of shoving your fears aside – however stupid they might be- cutting through the bullsh*t excuses you continue to accept readily and replacing it with precise and effective action.

 

I recommend you guys to try the Cold shower therapy, only the brave! You already take showers almost every morning (unless you stink to death) so why not use that time to learn something about your own fears and limits.

Peace out, xoxo

My thoughts on abusive relationships, romanticism and love in general

I’m writing a very special article today, it’s about love. I’m first gonna talk to everyone in a relationship, especially abusive relationships. Lots of people, including some of my closest friends, ignore that their relationship hurts them, breaks their dreams, damages their feelings and locks them in a small cell for what they think is called love. Ladies and gentlemen, let me give you a simple love tutorial. If your partner makes you feel like crap: that is not love between you two, you might think it is but it’s everything BUT love. If your partner brings you down: that is definitely not love. If your partner reminds you of your lowest points, make you regret your bad days and brings up every mistake you have done in the past: that is not love. If you guys argue all the time, spit venom at each other, curse, yell, scream at the top of your lungs, make drama everywhere you go, if you have anger problems such as breaking dishes… That is not love, even if you conciliate right after and feel so relieved after the drama. People, when you feel happy about reconciliating with your partner with whom you just had a crazy fight: it’s not love, it’s science since reconciliations with ANYONE makes our brain feel better, so it’s not because you love the partner but because you don’t like staying on bad terms with a person, in general, like all normal human beings. If you took a minute to reconsider how much time and energy you put into fighting, and then thinking about the fight: you would’ve chosen to cut the crap. We already have plenty of drama in our lives, we want a partner to satisfy our desires and make us feel good, physically and mentally (very important to balance the two), we don’t want someone to add even more drama. Ain’t nobody got time for that.

September blues and the top 3 things to try before Summer ends (wait it’s over?)

        Hi there friends, i spent an amazing month eating oreos, reading by the beach, travelling with my cousin and bestie, seeing friends, dancing like a creep, swiping boys on Tinder and most importantly having tons of new incredible experiences. I hope everyone spent a great summer, and that this September’s blues doesn’t get into your heads folks, because September can be such a bitch sometimes, isn’t it? Thanks God i’m not born during this lame ass month, nor on a Friday 13th… Wait, i am!

Anyhow, here’s the top 3 things i tried this summer.

1) Stargaze on a rooftop. Preferably with some good music and a person you genuinly love. You won’t have much to say to each other, but it’s because of the breath taking beauty of the sky and moment. You’ll realize silence is sometimes more precious than words.

2) Swim naked in the ocean. Crazy, right? But once you try it, you feel so much freedom from being completely exposed to the waves and the semi infinity of the sea. I understand the nudists now, somewhat.

3) Wear a scary mask in the streets and see how each person reacts. I don’t enjoy being the center of attention, but if i can get the attention without people knowing who i am, why not?

Peace out! Xoxo

What the fuss is the #ALS Ice Bucket challenge all about ?!

The Harlem Shake of the summer is without any doubt the ALS Challenge, With all the celebrities, athletes and even politicians doing the challenge, it has become viral not only all over the US, but all over the world. So i’ve done a little research about the ALS disease and even though the ALS association gained a lot of donations thanks to the Ice Bucket Challenge, i feel like 80% of the people doing the challenge have no idea whatsoever about the disease, the charity, the awareness, the goal… they end up doing it to feel good about themselves, have summer fun and look cool on the video so they can post it on all sorts of social networks. What i really can’t understand is this rule: You do the challenge and tag someone, and that’s it you don’t research the disease or the association, you don’t donate, you don’t volunteer, but if you don’t you take this way out to avoid giving money to charity, you have to donate to the association within the next 24 hours. Yes ‘penalized’, so the others who did the challenge are winners and look cool and all of that because they waste a bucket of water and get soaked. Why is the loser the one who donates money? Why isn’t the first rule: don’t copy on celebrities just because they look cool, know what the hell ALS means and donate something (anything!) before you start feeling good about yourself while you did ABSOLUTELY nothing useful or impressing during the video. Dumping cold water over your head, tagging a friend and still trying to look sexy isn’t going to cure the Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis disease, it’s not going to help the ALS foundation and definitely not turn you into someone who fights for causes. It makes you dumb, and you get to win the Asshole of the year award by wasting clean water while some people are fighting in the world just to have access to dirtier water, if you at least give a donation, i think we could ignore the fact you’re an ecological disaster. So please, please, next ALS Ice Bucket Challenger: Donate before getting wet. And for everyone a little smarter than this circus: donate to charity without the need of being tagged to do it and following the trend, donate because you care, if you can’t give money give your time, energy or skills, volunteer, a simple action can change so much around you.

Sincerely, 

FZ.
