The End of the World

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Eat, Drink, and Be Merry….”

If the world was ending tomorrow … I would honestly probably spend my last night preparing for it. I would go to my parents’ house out in the country and make sure that we were all equipped with water, food, guns, everything. I don’t think I would be able to eat much anyways as I would be too nervous/upset/scared/confused. But, if we were to make a “last supper” and it was my choice, I would definitely choose mashed potatoes, turkey, gravy, carrots, buns, and pie (drool). That is my most favourite dinner of all time.

I would make sure that my parents, my sister and her boyfriend, my boyfriend, and all the animals were out there for our last night. I would sleep (if possible) in the basement in an extremely comfy bed, and try to mentally prepare myself for the inevitable. I have spent my entire life (up until last year) sleeping in the basement, and so that is where I feel truly safe. I feel like it’s the best place to be in situations like tornadoes or whatever else.

But in all honesty, I would probably spend my last day freaking out, crying, puking, and just unable to accept the reality of what was happening. That’s just me.


Yoga & Mental Health

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Blogger With a Cause.”

Simple. Mental health and yoga. I dream of a life where I do what feels right to me at that time – yoga whenever and wherever, meditation, reading, contemplating, etc; basically, improving my own mental health. Then going out and spreading that good energy and important message to everyone that surrounds me.

We’re all hurting and we all need to heal, and yet it seems such a low priority in this society for us to focus on our own personal mental health. Yet, the better our mental health and personal wellness, the less war, terrorism, murder, abuse, trauma, on and on. We all know this deep in our souls, but we don’t acknowledge it or do anything about it.

To spend my day as I want, I would make it my mission to spread good mental health and wellness to everyone and everything I come in contact with. I would make it a priority in this society to heal our wounds instead of suppressing and ignoring. I would make it normal to talk about feelings and pain. I would make it acceptable to work on ourselves before working on others.

Even though I have personal responsibilities that may stop me from living the carefree life I dream of living, I am still going to work on this mission of mine. I will never stop working for mental health.
