When Monday Motivational Quotes Don’t Do The Trick… (battling with depression, anxiety and panic attacks)

al bundy giphy

So my little pandas, I’m going to try and talk about depression, panic/anxiety attacks in the lightest way possible. Key word being… try, because quite frankly I don’t want to get myself worked up again to the point where funny gifs won’t be able to do their job anymore.

Why Mom Was Right About Not Writing Things Down…


My mom wasn’t the most open about many a things when I was growing up. Most things were learnt from friends and my grandma (maternal side who I called Baba). Baba would teach me invaluable things like ‘Washing dishes makes your hands and nails beautiful’ and ‘Don’t sit with your legs up and spread apart while wearing a skirt so everyone can see your underwear’. Of course I can’t forget the one about ‘I must learn to cook because how else will I become a good housewife’. Afterall the key to a man’s heart is through his stomach right? Well, I later found out that washing dishes by hand ruins your nails, and if I wore shorts under my skirt I avoided people seeing my underwear, and I learnt to cook for myself and not because I was going to get married. Anyway, besides all that, being an only child didn’t help my situation either. So growing up wasn’t an easy task to conquer. With my mom’s limited hands-on, in depth talks and my friends telling me wrong things I was a hopeless case. However with that being said my momma did instill one tidbit of information that has stuck with me throughout my  life…And that is to never write anything down that you don’t want others to see. Because if it happened to fall into the wrong hands, it would ruin you.

A Girl’s Guide: To Surviving Sex For The First Time With Someone New

bunny sex relationships

Oh boy… This one’s a doozy isn’t it? It’s quite possibly one of the most awkward, fumbling, tumbling yet exhilarating experiences one will every go through. And unfortunately, it will probably happen each and every time you have sex with someone new. Unless however, you’re uber confident in your skills and your naked body. I however feel pity to those that befall my nakedness because it’s something that their tiny eyeballs can’t unsee.

The Man Who Said He Wasn’t ‘Feeling It’…

I'm just not feeling it

Men still, to this day, perplex me. It’s a subject that I probably won’t be able to master in my lifetime. Sure, I might get close but in the end they (men) will inevitably do something to throw me for a loop. And oh, how it frustrates me so.

Here’s To Looking Forward…

positive vibes

You know that thing that happened yesterday… That thing that really upset you, made you miserable, and cried. Well, here’s the thing. It happened yesterday and you are still breathing today. You didn’t die over it. You were that strong to wake up the next day. And upon waking, you even feel a little less pain, even if it’s microscopic.

Motivation of The Day…

Motivation

When I saw this I thought, now here is a quote that makes me think about my actions. Is the effort that I put forward today going to carry on over to tomorrow? Am I striving to reach my goals?

I suppose the honest truth is, that I am taking itty bitty steps in the right direction. No, I might not be taking giant strides and accomplishing my goals in leaps and bounds . But I am, however, doing little things here and there. Yes it might take me longer but it’s a choice that I am willing to sacrifice for.

Don’t let today or any day for that matter, be a mundane one. Don’t let it be meaningless. And no matter how small a step you’re taking towards your ambitions, it’s a step! Which is the most important thing of all.

 

Peace, Love and Panda Happiness

Motivation of The Day – Write Something Every Day

Write Something Every day

For me this is a pretty tough one, seeing as how I have a pretty full plate at the moment. But I do try and write one post a day. If I just have no time whatsoever then I write a tiny blurb in my journal.Yes, I still have a journal. In all honesty, I think it’s the one thing that is keeping me sane. I think it’s super important to get your feelings out in some form or another. I’m not much of a talker. In fact, I have a very select few who I talk to about everything. Actually, it’s just one person! haha! So when that one person is not available to have a proper chinwag with, I write it down. All my thoughts. Even the really shitty ones. The shittier the better I say. That way those thoughts are out of your mind and thrown in a book that can remain closed. Get those pesky negative bad joo joos out.

A Stormy Kind of Sunday Filled With Reflection…

Ah how another Sunday has come and almost gone. Today was so chilled out. I love days like that, don’t you? No stress, catching up on some shows, doing some writing and generally being an all round easy Sunday kind of day. The weather was not so easy however. There was a miserable dreary overcast that was hovering above London. And still is, by the way. But I love those kind of days. It helps you get cosy. Where chilling in your pj’s  comes so effortlessly easy.

It’s time for Part two of the weirdest search terms that people use to find my blog. You can see Part One here.

Like I’ve stated previously, people are odd and what they search for on the internet is even odder. With the other post I tried to interpret what people were trying to search for since it had Panda in it and then I would give those searches my sound, funny advice. Okay, my sarcastic advice. For this one I am just going to list them and give my sarcastic advice straight out the gate. Reason being, the search terms relate to sex, cheating and love. So, here it goes.

Motivation of The Day…

I found this on Pinterest and thought it had some great ideas to do in 2015. Let’s always try and reconnect with things we’ve forgotten about. Or to try and push ourselves out of our comfort zone. That is my goal this year. To try and push myself to do new things and rekindle some old ones.

So if you guys are anything like me, in need of some help, then this list is for you.

My Parents Failed To Advise Me Better…

mother-and-daughter-1950s(1)


Growing up can be tough especially if you are an only child. Therefore it is vital that you get the best advice out there. In the time before the phrase ‘google it’ was invented advice fell solely at the mercy of your parents. You had to close your eyes and pray that what they told you was sound enough to get you through the toughest formative years of your life. Unfortunately, in my case, my parents were most definitely not doing their job properly. And I found myself in situations that I was not equipt to handle because my parents failed to advise me better.
