Sign A Contract With Yourself

"I the undersigned promise not to beat myself up too much." Change is necessary. In order to make your life worthwhile you have to hold yourself responsible. Make it as formal as possible, use the right language, and treat your relationship with yourself like an investment. Get serious about caring for yourself, and make it count. If you don't care about yourself, how can you expect others to care about you?
This is a contract, which means you HAVE to follow it.
Date: 8.4.15 Weather: Cloudy, Humid as Hell Location: New York City Time: 2:18 P.M. The Undersigned: Tess Stevens The Proprietor: ========== I, Tess Stevens, understand that the obligations below are non-negotiable. By signing this contract I give myself over to the demands of my new life. I will follow the following to the best of my ability and give it my best shot. If I fail in any of the endeavors below, no harm will come to me; however I must hold myself accountable.
I, Tess Stevens, understand that things are about to change. In order to make life better for myself, my family and my mental health I am prepared to carry out the following actions: -Take everything in stride, even the bad things -Perform to the best of my ability on any given day -Work as hard as possible, without wrecking myself -Give myself room to make mistakes, and correct them accordingly In addition I promise not to beat myself up if things go wrong, and instead welcome change with open arms and always look to the future. I also hold myself accountable for destructive behavior, and will not engage in things that will propel me backward, for that is the way to certain failure. I, the undersigned will not be as hard on myself, and when life gets hard I will take my own advice. I will hold myself to a high standard. I also recognize that I am worth respect and kindness. I will not hold back my creativity, be afraid, or go into things timidly. In like a lion, out like a lion. I will not change myself to fit a mold. I will utterly be myself...whoever that is.

Addendum:

I will still, unfortunately, deal with unrealistic expectations and will have to find balance. Not all of my problems will be solved by signing this, but I will ultimately gain more awareness and respect for myself by doing so. The dreams will never go away and I will learn to respect the processes of life. It will not be easy, but I will keep trying.
I accept that things will happen, and I may not be able to control them.
In conclusion, I, Tess Stevens will learn that life is a gift and not a chore. I will remain an outlaw, but I will do my best to make things work. I, the undersigned, am fearless.

I state for the court, the world, God and the Devil that I will and do understand that nothing is certain, and everything can change.


And that's just fine!

What Has BTS Taught You
Hello fam! I can across this cool edit. These are not my own, but I wanted to share. @VeronicaArtino and I were having a conversation about " why we look up to BTS or what we have learned from them." These edits definitely sum up what I have learned from BTS. Honestly my key things are you are never too young to be wise. Love myself and loving myself is not selfish. Love those who support you and even your haters. You reap what you sow. If you plant seeds of success and water them with hard work and dedication you will get what you deserve. Focus on being the best version of myself, screw comparing myself to others. COMMENT BELOW WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED FROM BTS!

Self Care with BTS
Hello fam! I constantly making sure in order for me to reduce stress and manage mental health I must take self care important. I have some tips to help those who want to reduce stress by self care. BTS will help me out. *Disclaimer I'm not a doctor. Consult with PCP if you have health issues. I'm sharing my skin care routine.* Tip 1: Meditation and or relaxing This will help you wind down and reduce those racing thoughts. You can add in deep breathing if you like. I rest while listening to calming music or rain music. Tip 2: Pamper yourself or skincare At the end of the day I take time to enjoy my skincare routine. The scents and applying the products can be relaxing. Tip 3: Make time with friends Being around positive friends and having fun can help reduce stress and remind you that you are loved. At least once a month my friends and I always do something e.g. lunch, dinner, spa day, etc. Tip 4: Eating healthy and drinking lots of water Sometimes it is true you can be mean when hungry lol. I know I am. I feel bad physically when I eat lots of greasy foods and drink sugary drinks. Make sure to eat those in moderation and stay hydrated. This can improve health. Tip 5: Exercise be active Moving around helps you feel alive and good about yourself. WHAT DO U DO FOR SELF CARE? COMMENT BELOW!!!
