Here’s something I don’t always talk about, but I should today…

I went through this. Two years ago. Yeah, I could hide it, and try to pretend it didn’t happen, or I could say that I went through it and came out of the other side.

I suppose I’m now ready to talk about it… I went through it because I had been bullied a lot as a child right through to the age of 17. I guess, I didn’t really know any different until after I moved schools. I suppose, going through it that long, you either get used to it and/or believe that everyone goes through it too…

Then, after leaving my old school and entering a new one, I met someone really abusive, mentally. That wasn’t fun either… I think this is one of the reasons why I don’t usually get into relationships – I mean, I wasn’t dating this guy but he was a complete creep. I literally had to get the police involved.

The reason I’m opening up about this now is because I feel like this can help someone… We all go through stuff. Terrible stuff. It’s the strong ones who are able to come out the other side that are the winners.

For me, although I was at the rockest of all bottoms, my saving grace was that I kept thinking of “tomorrow”. I never told myself I’d do “it” today. I always said “if I’m still feeling like this tomorrow, I’ll do it”. The same went on for as long as it did…

I was a junior youth worker aged 13. When the majority of my peers in Dagenham were getting pregnant, drinking and smoking – I was campaigning against it, running seminars against children doing these things. I’d set up classes, theatre trips to get people off the streets, and did all I could to be a shoulder to cry on for the bullied.

One thing you need to know about me, I was someone who was too strong to comprehend suicide. I understood the weaknesses of people who feel like they can’t go on, but I encouraged their strengths and made them feel like there’s stuff to live for. So, I surprised myself and everyone around me when I went through it…

My lesson is this, whoever you meet – try to be the best version of you that you can be. Honestly, there’s too much mean spiritedness everywhere and it needs to stop. Don’t agree with someone? Fine. Don’t hate on them for it. Don’t like the look of someone? Don’t hate on them for it. Don’t get along with someone? Fine. Don’t hate on them for it. There are ways to go about everything in life, and understanding that some people may be more sensitive about certain things than others is a start.

Be a nice and good human. In fact, don’t even worry about the nice and good bit, just be HUMAN. Love as much as you can and spread as much joy as you can.

I always thought it’s easier to be nice than it is to be horrible… I mean, you have to THINK about the negative things to say to people, right? Like, mean people must put their curses into audition and figure out strongest and most likely to bring someone down… What a waste of a life. Get a hobby.

That is all I wanted to say. To the nice people out there, keep being nice and if you go through stuff, it’s okay. I mean, it shouldn’t be but we’re human. Alas, we live in a society where the idiots are too brave and the legends lack it.

heatwave UKI’ve just hopped (like a kangaroo) on here to discuss the importance of You.

Right, there’s a lot I can say, but I’ll try to keep it under 10,000 words. Emphasis on the word ‘try’.

First and foremost, you should smile 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 4 weeks a month, 12 months a year – yadi yadah.

Second and Formosa, you’re legit a legend.

Third and utmost, remember that those who are first to pass negative judgement and/or give criticism are the same people who do nothing but sit around jobless, trying to get rises out of people like it pays their bills. While you are smashing it, doing you, being the best, they cry into their cereal and do nothing but troll from their dim, cardboard box room.

Fourth and mostmost, you’re a special little fella, aren’t you? You bring love, light, energy, and all the good stuff. You have saved people’s lives and brightened people’s days no end. You’ve made people who didn’t even want to smile or laugh cry with happy tears. Every time you hit a snag, remember this. There’s no One better.

As I said, there’s more, plenty more – but, I’ll stop. Remember this, an opinion is valid, always. Also, if you’re not being criticised, you’re not doing well enough. Haters only hate on people who’re better than them, and greater.

Thanks.

Godly blessings.

I once ate a whole wasabi. My friends recorded the whole thing.

There are many oral health habits that can result in a wide range of benefits. Including self-confidence, oral care ensures that the confidence of the individual is sky high. Some of the other tips from dentists to improve the smile are-

Moisturize
The lips and skin’s texture will influence the smile of an individual. Using a natural moisturizer will help the skin look healthy and luminous. One more alternate for this is using a natural lip balm, which will moisten the lips and at the same time make the smile of the person look beautiful.

When the user visits the drugstore to purchase moisturizer, he/she should read all the ingredients that are used to make the moisturizer. If the names of the ingredients cannot be ready clearly by the user, then the user can safely assume that the moisturizer is made of chemicals.

Drinking Water

Some of the expert dentists encourage people to drink a lot of water to improve their smile. This simple method helps a great deal in improving the overall health of the skin, body, and the mouth, which in turn improves the quality of the smile. A dry mouth gives out a terrible smell. This makes the individual less inclined to smile. Also, drinking water facilitates the production of saliva, which is enough to wash away food particles, plaque, and other pain inducing bacteria. So, a dentist will always recommend his patient to drink more water rather than sip a cool soda.

Daily Flossing


Regular flossing helps in the removal of plaque from the teeth. Flossing daily will help individuals in avoiding gingivitis and tooth decay. If flossing is not done, plaque and tartar build up close to the gums and this can also cause periodontal disease. To floss efficiently, one has to wrap the floss around the finger and slowly insert it in the space between the teeth. After this, the floss should be moved up and down. If bleeding occurs, it is most likely due to bleeding gums.

Quitting Smoking

It is common knowledge that smoking causes the teeth to stain. Once the stain due to the smoke occurs, then the surface can only be cleaned with the help of a polish. However, this stain can soak very deep into the enamel structure of the teeth. Smoking also has adverse effects on the gums and causes them to develop harmful pockets close to the teeth. Also, smoking makes the teeth look longer and creates dark areas between the teeth. So, based on this, it won’t be a surprise if a dentist recommends his patients to stop smoking.

Limiting the Intake of Coffee, Red Wine, and Tea
Drinking coffee, tea, and red wine are known to stain the teeth. Like smoking, the stain caused by these drinks can negatively impact the enamel layer of the teeth. Drinking with the help of a straw reduces the concentration of the stain. One more tip given by dentists here is that regularly rinsing the mouth will prove to be a great deal in reducing the stain. This ensures that the brightly colored liquid does not settle on the teeth.

The Toothbrush

Research has shown that electrical motorized toothbrushes help a great deal in achieving healthy gums and pays a key role in maintaining healthy gums. If a person is not willing to spend a lot on electric toothbrushes, he or she should go for a brush with soft bristles. Stiffer bristles and rapid brushing can result in the bleeding of gums.

Overall, it is a good option for an individual to visit the dentist at least once in 6 months. This ensures that adequate caution is exercised when the teeth and mouth is being maintained.

Our wedding should be the happiest day of our lives or at least one of the happiest. That is what we all expect, but the reality is not so fairy-tale-like. Our wedding is the culmination of many months of planning and wedding planning can be, and usually is, very stressful. So, after months of planning and worrying the day is finally here, but the worries are not gone. They will be there until it’s over. Finally, after that, we can relax! That is why the honeymoon is the real star of the show, the time we spend with our loved one after the wedding and away from everyone else, just the two of us. So, take a look at a few unconventional suggestions and pick one. After all, this is a big decision so don’t rush into it.

Chobe National Park, Botswana

Botswana is a beautiful African country, known for its many natural riches. Although it is not the first place that comes to mind when thinking about your honeymoon, it is a great choice. Here you will feel closer than ever to true wilderness. This is the place you should visit if you are an adventure seeker. Don’t miss an opportunity to go on a safari when in Botswana. Chobe National Park is one the greatest wildlife destinations in Africa. It is a home to the world’s largest herds of elephants and other wild animals. Start your married life with an adventure and keep the excitement burning through your marriage. This is a unique opportunity to see some of the African wildlife and have the time of your life, as you start a new chapter.

Sydney, Australia

Newlyweds who are more interested in a city getaway ought to consider visiting Sydney. Sydney is a big city with a down-to-earth atmosphere. While the city is famous for its beautiful architecture, it is also a favorite of tourist because of its friendly people. Sydney is a great city to explore on foot. You can take a romantic stroll down its street and soak in the view. Sydney Opera House is one of its most famous landmarks. Its beauty is captivating, so you should definitely go see it. Sydney Harbor is another sight you shouldn’t miss. Deemed one of the most beautiful natural harbors in the world, it is also the place where you will find the second most visited and beautiful landmark in Sydney. Sydney Harbor Bridge is the world’s biggest steel arch bridge and climbing it will offer the most beautiful overview of the city. As for the atmosphere of the city, the best way to experience it is by mingling with locals. Also, you can always take a break from all the sightseeing and find a nice bar like Della Hyde in Darlinghurst. They have the best cocktails and you can enjoy your meal in a famous Aussie atmosphere.

Grjotagja, Iceland

Iceland is famous for its many hot springs, and Grjotagja is definitely among the prettiest ones. It is located near the lake Myvatn, in North Iceland. This small lava cave has a geothermal spring inside that is an amazing bathing destination. The best part of visiting Grjotagja is that it is relatively hidden. Not many people visit this hot spring, so you are more likely to enjoy the beauty and therapeutic effects of it in private. If the wedding planning was especially stressful, make this destination you honeymoon choice. Grjotagja is a nature’s spa, with more beautiful scenery than any spa could ever offer. Although not exactly famous, Grjotagja did have its moment in the spotlight when a scene of Game of Thrones was filmed there.

The title of this post has to be the most original title I’ve ever come up with… Seriously. I mean, I just literally purchased a shamballa from Amazon and I already cannot wait to wear it and/or for it to arrive.

I don’t do fashion posts anyway, so this is as good as you’re going to get… Enjoy. Green is the best colour (when blue is not available). No, if I’m being honest, blue ain’t got a patch on green. Green is bae.

When I saw this shamballa on Amazon, priced at £8.99- at that very moment, my bank balance experienced a -£8.99 (as if by magic). That, right there, is finance, online shopping and spending… If you pay tax & VAT, you’re doing it right. It is in your best INTEREST to rise in inflation.

Can I write 300 words about green shamballas? Yes. I’ve written about 150 already… You get the picture. If you don’t get it, it’s up there – above the text.

“Why do I love this shamballa?” I don’t know, are you lacking in common sense, taste and eyesight? Probably, or else you wouldn’t be asking such as silly question.

Green is the colour of my tattoo, bae’s eyes – very beautiful eyes, just ask Ultrabeat – and the grass, trees and other versions of botanical. Is this why I love botanicals? Again, probably.

The colour green symbolises neutrality (is that even a word? … The weird dotted red line hasn’t come up underneath it so I’m guessing so…)

Then again, I wouldn’t be surprised if ‘neutrality’ is a swear word in some other language and if I may have just offended a whole nation… Apologies! Look, I didn’t swallow a Rosetta Stone, I weren’t to know!

Right, so – if you too want to purchase this beautiful shamballa and wear it on your wrist, then check out this link!

Link… My ink… We’re in August, let that SINK in. If you’re fitting a tap at this moment in time, you’re PLUMBALIEVABLE!
