Keep Searching: A Letter From My Future Self

Decided to spin @JordanHamilton 's card a little differently and instead write from the perspective of my Future Self, talking to myself now.
Alright, I'll make this brief because I know you're busy, and you're probably exhausted.

Hey There Old Friend,

I know that some days you get up and hate the sun for shining in your hostile little face, and you blame the world and your circumstances for things you can't control, but that ball of life and death is about to hand you a gift.
In the future, all of that becomes irrelevant. I'm not going to reveal any details to you for your own good, so you can enjoy the journey...take the ride...whatever.
You've never been one to hold on to things, and people have always been secondary to your ambition. I want you to know that your appreciation for those around you will increase, you'll grow into your humanity and create something long-lasting for yourself.
The immortality you long for is just around the corner, you just have to keep working.
Nothing in life is certain or free...that you already know, but just make sure that you stick to your guns. If you do, there will be great rewards ahead of you.
I know it's hard to look into the sun without burning your eyes, but somehow you do that.
I'll let you know that your writing has changed lives. It's opened perspectives, made a movement happen. Just like you wanted. Your words will transcend anything you thought possible, people will connect with you. And your willingness to compete in the market has given you a breadth of freedom like nothing else.
Your words have saved lives. They've fueled revolutions, inspired a new batch of righteous and venom-filled female journalists. You still make music, and even that's taking off.
All of your dreams will come true if you let them. Do not let the fear and loathing hold you back. Keep on the path to recovery. Embrace it, and work through it...expose your soul for everyone else...they will follow.
I can't say that you're truly happy or satisfied though, your heart still longs for something it cannot name and you'll always be a bit of a loner. Your guts won't change, even though life will.
Have faith in that. Your courage of conviction and your willingness to leap off of the highest cliffs without any safety net will serve you.
Remember that in order to fly, you've got to fall.
Please don't get injured or do something stupid in the years we don't see each other, I know you're a reckless moron sometimes. The future is bulletproof, and it's coming, so get used to it. Never sacrifice the ridiculous amount of ambition and tenacity that you've got in your weird little heart. Trust the Gonzo. Jump off the cliff, you'll thank me.
I'll give you my regards when you deserve them,
Keep Searching.
Your Future Self,


Thank you @jordanhamilton for the prompt

def takes courage and guts!
@jordanhamilton oh wow, thank you :) I think it's seriously valuable to reflect, and to do so in a public way is completely vulnerable and awesome. It takes courage!
Ahhhh! Love this! and if you didn't know, your card last week was the inspiration for my card this week. this was amazing and def spoke to me. I love the fact that you were positive, but still noted that you aren't completely as of yet. you were being realistic and i think a lot of times, we don't do that. so I commend you for that. it happens. this def stood out to me and I love it so much "I know it's hard to look into the sun without burning your eyes, but somehow you do that." thanks for participating! this was great :)
@BPF1916 absolutely. Keep on the path of honesty and improvement!
@TessStevens the more you accept the dark things in your life, the more you accept your self I think! at least this is what happens to me. I guess we sometimes get so revolted with life that we start making an wrong analysis about our self's, pointing our great failures and predicting we would never get it right, or getting angry about things we wanted to do but we didn't... So I guess if you accept that nothing goes only right for you, and that you'll always face problems, you'll be able to make better decisions for your self and have a healthier relation with who you are!

Women guided to use only Mifepristone need to have a gestation of up to 7 weeks and are recommended to use 3 tablets of 200mg. If you’re prescribed using a combination of Abortion Pills then use 1 tablet of Mifepristone 200mg, and 4 tablets of Misoprostol 200mcg to get rid of an unplanned pregnancy. To get effective results ensure that you do follow the instructions provided by the health care provider. Functions Each tablet performs its work well in its area and helps women to get rid of the gestation.

You may feel young at heart and ready to conquer the world. But what if your skin doesn't look the part? Here are the top 5 treatments that keep you looking ageless and ready to take on the world... 1. Chemical Peels A chemical peel is a cosmetic treatment that removes the top layer of your skin. This can help minimize wrinkles, dullness, hyperpigmentation. A chemical peel procedure involves application of a liquid on the face, which is later wiped off.

Skin may become noticeably smoother even after one treatment and better absorb moisturizers. The procedure involves gentle sand blasting your skin with aluminium oxide crystals. 5.

Hello there!!
I have walked through my mind, seeking answers to issues related to the manner in which we create our reality on the basis of feelings and thoughts, trying to draw a map for those who venture in the search for a truth in themselves... But after so much searching, digging into my thoughts, has come to the conclusion that it is sometimes necessary to be lost to find ourselves... I know, because after so much searching, digging into my memories, seeking simple answers, I could see that the simplicity as such does not exist... It is for this reason that I have returned, with the discovery that many times, without realizing it, we are increasingly away from ourselves, so it is necessary to realize the importance of our existence in our decisions... With that conclusion, I invite you to think about that point of your existence you are here now, and the extent to which you intend to arrive in the future, because many times we forget to ask these questions and, therefore, we forget the sense that lead our actions... Just remember that the farther apparent be yourself, it is the closer you are to the answer. You must remember that the ego has double-edged sword, and therefore can be used as a cure for uncertainty, or as a weapon to finish with the oneness... Well, an apology for disappear suddenly, some even came to ask me if I was good or if something was wrong. I thank those who have provided me with a place in his thoughts as to do such a thing, and I hope we can continue to share moments, thoughts, pieces of existence...until the universe decides to give us another utility... C ya soon then, and have a beautiful day...
Beginners Guide: Jewellery photography
Jewellery is part of our dressing style and can be called extensions to our outfits. It is essential to understand your jewellery to take the correct pictures. Accessories photography can be tricky and can go wrong if you are not careful enough. Jewellery photography Some basic things need to be ok when doing a jewellery photoshoot. · Natural Light- Lighting is essential in jewellery photography because you will take actual pictures of your jewellery in natural light. Buyers or audience would want to see the true image of the jewellery, and natural light can help you achieve the look. · Background- Another essential thing is background. Make sure you have a stunning set but not too much to take the spotlight from your jewellery. A white backdrop might be your best option for taking amazing jewellery photographs. · Camera- You need to be careful about the camera and lenses you are using. Not every camera takes good pictures. Check your camera quality and make sure you read reviews about the camera before buying it. · Model- If you want to use models for your jewellery, then don't forget to choose those who have significant physical features. A suitable body type would give you the best pictures. An unflattering body might not make your photographs look good. · Stand- When doing a jewellery photoshoot, make sure to have jewellery stands for well-thought pictures. · Package- How you present your ornaments is very important in jewellery photography. People need to feel connected to the item. Here packaging of pieces of jewellery is rather vital. Suppose you are taking a diamond ring’s picture. If you take one of the pictures with the diamond ring in a packaging system it comes, it will look amazing. James Allen packaging provides the finest quality of packaging. · Mannequin- For taking better pictures, you will need the dummy to provide how the pieces of jewellery will look on an actual person if you are not using models. Jewellery photography is highly satisfying if you do it following some guidelines.
Jackets that Every Woman Should Own
We, women, love shopping. We keep stuffing our closet with almost everything that we like. But it’s time to get smart about shopping and that means making sure you’re covering your basics before worrying about the others. One such category of basics I feel is jackets or outerwear. That makes a huge difference in your ability to layer and create visually interesting pieces. This article is all about six essential types of jackets that I think every woman should have. 1. Denim Jacket Well, this is the one piece I stick to most of the time. Demin jackets have been around forever and they will never go out of style. The best part is there are unlimited ways to style it. Just adding a denim jacket can make almost every outfit in your wardrobe look super casual and cool. You can visit TrueGether, one of the best eBay alternatives, to get the best denim jacket for yourself. You will find various designs and sizes to choose from. 2. Leather Jacket The second very obvious outwear staple is one of those rare pieces that can transition your look straight from the office to the club or to the market – the leather jacket. The most common and safe choice for a leather jacket would be the black one. But depending on your choice you can go for different colors and patterns. It makes your look cool to the core and says you are not to be messed with! 3. Kimono A traditional Japanese outfit and now a huge trend across the globe – Kimono. They are basically long or short open jackets in different colors, patterns, and fabrics that can be styled in so many different ways. I think it’s a very easy way to add a layer of style and color to your outfit. You can go for a warm, velvet, or wool kimono for cold months or you can go for lightweight georgette or chiffon ones for summers. They can be styled with shorts, jeans, dresses, jumpsuits, and every other outfit. No matter what your body type is, a long flowy kimono will always complement your shape. They can even act as a coverup over your swimsuits. 4. Bomber Jacket Bomber jackets have been a thing for quite a while now and they’ve been so much popularized by celebrities, be it their off-duty model looks or airport looks. This is the perfect layering piece to transition from summer to fall and even winter if you wear it over a nice sweater. So, I think this piece of jacket is the one that every woman needs to have in her wardrobe. They were so well even on the leggings. There are multiple prints, patterns available so you can always experiment and see what works best for you. 5. The Classic Blazer One wardrobe staple that can turn any outfit into a professional get-up is a classic blazer. You can experiment with so many colors and patterns that are huge trends these days. It makes a person look sophisticated and classy as well. You can even pair it with shorts in summer and look really cool or with a saree to get that Indo-Western perfect look. A blazer can make any outfit look very chic. So, these were the types of jackets that every woman should have in her wardrobe. They will surely cover almost all your occasions. If you don’t already have these jackets, it’s time to make the move now. It will be an investment that you won’t regret.
