Dream Big

Following your dreams is a scary thing for most people. Nobody knows how to go about it. I see many young teens and adults who aspire for more in their life. Some want to be singers; some want to be authors; others just dream big.

And it's sad to say that many of these people don't even attempt to live out those dreams. I mean, how do you unless you try? Well, it's because we're scared of failure. We're scared that we won't be loved or that we'll be made fun of.

Many people think I'm extremely stupid for not going to college, but I just got out of high school! I have my whole life ahead of me. I don't want to be in debt as soon as my life starts. I have dreams I must chase after because if I don't, then what's the point of living?

You can't live out those dreams unless you try. The big stars out there wouldn't be acting unless they pursued those dreams, and you can't sit their and wallow in those dreams unless you have failed.

But failure only makes us stronger. We learn from it. If it weren't for failure, we'd be going in a straight line our entire lives, doing exactly what everyone else is doing for eternity.

And I know with dreams, there comes sacrifices as well. My all time dream of becoming a successful author may not live to its standards, but how do I know? Why should I give up on that dream? Just because it doesn't seem possible?

And many teenagers don't try because they're too preoccupied with what society wants you to be preoccupied with: self-acceptance on social networking, drinking, partying, smoking.

But not for me. Instead of doing all of that stuff while I was in high school, I came home everyday and wrote. It was my way of escaping this world and i'ts cruelty.

I have a successful friend who did the same things; he spent all of his free time developing video games. Everyone made fun of his because he had "no life". But guess what? He's rich now, and most importantly, living out his dream.

What if that could happen to me? Why should I miss out on that opportunity? Just so I can be like everyone else?

Life can always move forward, but you can't go back.

  1. Excellent, excellent, excellent. I took three years off after graduating high school. {I told people it was just one year, but, uh, I was hoping it would last longer.} I spent those years writing, and this past year I actually did go to college like one is supposed to do. It was great, but I don't at all regret taking those years off. {Except for forgetting all my mathematics.} I applaud you for following your dreams and not just talking about them. :)

    1. Thank you! I'm glad there are others out there like me. If I was going straight to college, I'd be going mad right now. High school literally drove me mad, so why would I want to keep driving myself insane?

      Goodluck to you!

My Experience in Healing Rosacea & Acne: Bentonite Clay

So I've never really discussed my regime I use for my face, or actually what I used to use on my face. Am I confusing you already? Good. Because now you shall read on.

Most of you already know I have rosacea. It was very bad to begin with. There's a photo on one of my posts showing the pure redness across my nose and chin. Along with that, I had so many pimples and lots of cystic acne.

Now what do I think caused it? My overabuse of my skin using commercial products. My last post I tried to explain why these face washes are terrible for our skin. I mean, who wants to slatherPPG 15 Stearyl Ether all over their face? They use it in face wash, so why not? Would you still put it on your face, considering its a toxin? I sure as hell wouldn't. So what makes you think that face wash is safe.

Oh yeah, cause the big ole' FDA claims so. Well, guess what? The FDA doesn't give two f*cks about your acne. They need you to develop that acne in order to make them money through the Pha…

Rosacea & Acne: Coconut Oil

So I'm continuing onward with my Rosacea & Acne posts. I see that these are what bring in the most views.

Now this is going to sound weird. In order to moisturize your skin, you need to use a natural oil.

And of course, you're thinking "But that'll make my skin oily!"

Well, yes, of course it does at first. But think about this for a moment. Your skin produces oils. When you use your harsh cleaners on your face, you strip all the oils off your skin. Which is totally not good for you. So what better way can you balance the oils on your skin? By replacing the oils with a natural oil: coconut oil, to be exact.

When I first started learning about natural remedies, I became intrigued by what I found. For I was determined to heal my scarring rosacea. My face was beat red, and I was embarrassed by it.

So I dropped all commercial products, picked up coconut oil and clay, and I was deteremined to win.

First of all, my skin gets super dry in the winter. So dry that when I put…

My Experience With Proactiv: Rosacea & Acne

Do those Proactiv comercials tempt you? Have you considered more than once on trying it? Are you on the borderline of giving into that temptation?

Well, please STOP, and read my story first.

I've used Proactiv, I have experience with the product, and I want to share my story with you guys. But I must backtrack almost 4 years ago to when I actually used it.

Actually, I'm going to backtrack a little farther back than that...

Well, here it goes:

When I was twelve-years-old, I had the most perfect, flawless skin a girl would die for, literally. I rarely had to use makeup because my skin was seriously that perfect. And it stayed that way for a good long time. I was selfish back then, not realizing how damn lucky I was. I can't imagine how many girls envied me.

But then, I got sucked into the world of society and started to feel the need to wear makeup, constantly. That was my first mistake. After I began wearing makeup as a need to feel "pretty," I started to develop a…
