Hearts united cat rescue
Monday, April 13, 2018
I don't know about you, but my kitty (who recently became a member of my Heart united cat rescue) looks a little different now than when I got her. I did get her at a young age so she has grown into her personality (I think) and I'm sure her looks have changed (but hey...I'm ok with that because it's in the end what counts!). She is now so funny that we often have to look at her twice before we realize she is a kitty.
On April 5, 2018, she was rescued from The Humane Society of the United States in Philadelphia. As you know, she is now safe and sound at Heart united cat rescue and she is so happy to be here.
This is her before I got her:
and this is her after I got her:
I feel like she went through a lot of stuff before she came here. I think some of you know that my sister moved to Boston a few years ago and I have not seen her in person for 5 years. So when I got her from The Humane Society, she was pretty lost for her. She really needed to come here and not only get some mental health care (she was a very stressed cat and needed help), but also get a kitty buddy who would help take care of her, give her love and attention, and allow her to feel like she belongs. I can tell she has a great personality and she is a bit shy at first, but she is really starting to come out of her shell and show her playful side.
As you can see, she is very cute and we are all happy to be together. Do you guys remember the photo I took of her last week that I was posting on Instagram? Well, she is now eating from a table with some wet food and water and it's great to see her so happy and in good health! I wish her happy life in this shelter and if you see her on Instagram, stop and talk to her. It's so nice to see happy kitties.
It's good to be back home and see the world again. I will talk more about her in my next blog post :)
Hi, this is a small blog (in comparison to other blogs). But, I do hope you can understand my reasons and the fact that it is only me (as a photographer) writing about my life and what I have been experiencing.
So, to get to the point, today I am feeling sad about myself. I know that this sounds strange, but I have been having an emotional breakdown. I do not know if it is related to my health issues or what is happening in my life, but it feels like there are a lot of things that I do not have control over, and it makes me sad and angry. Like, I am not happy with the things that are going on.
It is not like I am a negative person or anything like that. I have good days and bad days and I am always trying to be happy. I just feel sad because of things in my life, that I have no control over. I guess there are also some things that I have no control over, like if I get sick, or the state of my home or how I feel physically. It just feels like there are some things that I can do something about, and some things that are completely out of my control. I guess I feel like I am on the verge of a nervous breakdown. If you know anything about me, I am a very happy person, but lately I feel like I am falling apart.
If you are reading this right now, you can probably tell by my writing and the subject matter of this post that I am angry, but if you are reading this, I want you to know that I love you and I want you to know that everything is going to be okay. I just feel like I can’t do anything to change the things that are making me feel this way, and I just need to know that I am not alone in this and I can get through it and it is going to be okay.
I am going to write about things that are making me happy, and I am going to write about the things that I feel I can do something about. I am going to write about these things and get it out of my head.
I have been struggling lately with a lot of negative thoughts, a lot of things I have to do. Most of these things are things that I have to do for school, or for school and work, or work and school. I feel like I am constantly working or school or both and not doing enough sleep, but I feel like I should be able to get some sleep but I cannot. And these things just make me feel overwhelmed. So, I am going to write about these things, and how I am trying to make some changes in my life, but most of all I am going to write about the times I am able to get some sleep, and why I don’t care about anything when I have sleep.
It is easy to get lost in work and school. In fact, that is what I have been doing lately and I hate it. I want to be doing something positive, but I know I can’t do that with a lot of my thoughts that are making me go through depression. I want to feel better, I want to feel great again, and I want to get back to feeling the way I felt before the depression was such a huge part of my life.
I want to start a new journal, and write about the things I am going to change.
Here is my new journal, and my new beginning. I am finally taking the first steps in my life.
What is the title of your new journal?
What will you write about?
The first step to taking better care of myself and my life is to start writing. I can’t do it right now. My brain is too busy and is not letting me focus on other things. I will get to writing soon, and if I keep going in the direction I am going, then I should start to get better. I am thinking about starting to write about the things that make me feel bad, and how I feel and what I am doing about it. This is going to help me get my thoughts in order.
I like your title. It is quite fitting. Are you willing to share what you write?
Yes, you are free to read.
If I look in my journal that I had used before the break, I found things I had written in the past. I felt very sad about the state of my life and my life and I wanted to find out what was the cause. In the past I had only told my best friends, or my mom about this, and it had not really helped me any. This is where the steps will come in. Writing, and sharing these thoughts will help me get better. If I share this with others, it will help them too.
It is so interesting to see how we can learn from our past mistakes and use them to change our present and our future.
