My MVP is your MVP

My MVP is your MVP

Today, the daily prompt is My FavoriteWhat’s the most time you’ve ever spent apart from your favorite person? Tell us about it.


At first, when I thought about how to answer this prompt, I thought to myself, “Who IS my favorite person?” I shuffled through names of people who I enjoyed spending time with, who were important to me. In the end, I got it. My favorite person, is myself.

Physically, I have never been apart from myself, but mentally I have. It’s hard for me to measure the moments where I wasn’t there for myself though; times where I haven’t been there for myself, are numerous.

When I was depressed and neglected to take care of myself.

When I got in an argument with someone close to me and instead of respecting myself and my boundaries (which are there to protect my mental well being), I would let myself get walked over time and time again.

When I couldn’t find a balance between getting stuff done and getting enough sleep; I knew it at the times, that not getting enough sleep would lead to a viscous cycle of getting less done and in turn, losing more sleep to get more done.

Hardly how I should treat my favorite person, hey? Well, it just serves as a constant reminder to be there for myself, no matter what.

You guys take care of your MVPs as well! 🙂

 

When there is not enough self-love

When there is not enough self-love

Write about what you did last weekend as though you’re a music critic reviewing a new album (or single).


 

Male host: We are here now to review the new single released by Tiffany, just last week.

Female host: Ah yes! It’s been a while. I wonder what this one is like!

M: Why don’t we listen to it together?

(Song plays)

… wondering if I am making the right choice…
… when that one knows how to hurt more than that one knows how to care…
… what is respect? What is trust? One thing is for sure…
… by suffering needlessly, I am only disrespecting–myself.

(Song ends)

F: …

M: Well, the mood was… certainly… dark.

F: I agree. I think we can all relate to these feelings though.

M: What do you mean?

F: Well, when someone you care about lies to you? Or purposely hurts you for whatever reason? Like out of revenge?

M: I see where you are coming from. Reminds me of a time I ran away from home to try to get back at my dad for grounding me. I got a good whooping after, but I know that they were worried about me first and foremost.

F: Haha, thank you for sharing the story, but let’s get back on track. With regards to the mood of this song, I’d say that it is very comtemplative.

M: Maybe… also, the struggle when finding out that you didn’t love yourself as much as you should have?

F: Where did that come from? That was rather deep…

M: Let’s just say that I know what it is like to cling onto an unhealthy love because I didn’t know how to love myself first and foremost.

F: Wow, if you wouldn’t mind, how about we go for supper after and talk about this further? You seem to have a lot of wisdom!

M: Hah! Sure, why not! So, now we end off with the final verdict. What we have here is a slow and melancholy ballad. It is a very relatable one too, we believe, because it brings to light a question that I’m sure many of us ask ourselves with regards to different aspects of life. That question is, “How much suffering can I voluntarily let myself go through before I start hurting myself?”

F: Yes! With that, we will end off our Music Reviewcast. I’m F.

M: And I’m M. We hope you have a great day and take it easy on yourselves!


 

Daily post’s daily prompt: B+

All over the map

All over the map

According to Google, an idol is a person or thing that is greatly admired, loved, or revered. I have a few, one of which just passed away yesterday. Here they are:


 

In High School: Freddie Mercury and David Bowie

These two guys were my idols growing up; they still are. I found their creativity, uniqueness, energy, and confidence extremely inspiring. They were truly one of their own kind. They inspired me to be proud of any talents and skills that I had, and to share them when I could with energy! They taught me that it is okay to be weird and stand out. Even though both of them have passed on, their influences on me continue to impact me today in a positive way.

In my first and second year of University: The K-Pop band Bigbang and 2NE1

I went through a K-Pop phase when I was in university for a while. These two were my favorites because both groups have members that had their own special talents (ex. soulful singing, delicate singing, wicked dance moves, great rap skills). They were a breath of fresh air for me because so many K-Pop groups nowadays are super uniform; where their members have similar body types, facial features, and heights. These two bands showed me how, by combining different strengths properly, you can get synergy. 1+1 is now equal to 3, 4, 5… and more! They inspired me to become more well-rounded.

In my 3rd year of university, to the present: Myself

All the good and bad that have happened to me, have led me to this day. I have gone through a lot and I know that there will be more hardships later on in life. But, I’m confident in my strength (both physical and mental). I know that I can deal with whatever life throws at me!


In response to the Daily Post’s Daily Prompt: Teen Age Idol

Who did you idolize as a teenager? Did you go crazy for the Beatles? Ga-ga over Duran Duran? In love with Justin Bieber? Did you think Elvis was the livin’ end?
