The ‘Blahs’ – By Jess

Microsoft Word - Document1

The Spring semester of 2016, was the “Semester of Worry.” I was worried about my finances, getting an on campus job, doing well in my classes, being able to take care of myself, and making lasting friendships. I was overwhelmed by anxiety and blinded by my problems that I always anticipated the worst outcome. But then in the summer of that year, I got a job, I didn’t have to retake any class, I was able to take care of myself, and I had a much better living condition. So I decided that the Fall was going to be the “Semester of Hope and Prayer.” When I was not praying and asking God to provide a way out, I was worrying about the gigantic wall that wasn’t budging. And so when the semester ended and I was neck deep in the same problem, I felt discouraged. I was offended at God; I questioned His power and might, and I doubted if He was for me. In the midst of all of this, God revealed His love to my heart, and that’s when I started to see the good that came out of the problems. However, between my time of discouragement, and finding God’s love, I had a case of the blahs.

Guard your heart! – By Jess

Hey Guys! I’m back! 🙂

IMG_1383

I’m Jess, a friend of Oyinlola. I do a guest post on the blog once in awhile. You can read my first blog post here. You might have seen the title of this blog entry, and concluded that it had something to do with love or maybe relationships. Sorry to disappoint, it doesn’t!

Now that you know I’m no relationship expert, let’s talk about your heart.

Biology tells us that the heart is an organ in the body that helps circulate blood; it pumps the blood, moves it all around, and does a lot of bio-stuff. But an important thing about the heart, is the fact that once it ceases to function, a person can no longer stay alive (you probably already know this). And while this heart is very important, there is another heart that’s of a greater importance. The Intangible Heart. This heart is that part of us where our emotions and desires dwell. It is composed of our mind, our will, our conscience and our emotion. Our very lives emanate from the heart. We lead, live, relate, confront, instruct, manage, love, and problem solve from the heart.

What’s in your mental script?- By Jess

Hey everyone; I’m Jess, a writer (it’s just a hobby), and a friend of Oyinlola. I love food (just had to say that! lol), and I enjoy sharing my experiences, thoughts, and opinions with others. This is my first blog entry, and honestly, I’m nervous and excited (insert “lady in the red dress emoji”). Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy reading this.

What’s in your mental script?

You might ask yourself, “what is a mental script?,” or you may be wondering, “What is my mental script?.”

Your mental script is what you say about yourself when you talk to yourself.

It is what defines your evaluation of your own capabilities and worth.

It is how you view yourself, and what you think about yourself.

Your mental script has been developing since the day you were born. Your parents, siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles, friends, teachers, classmates, colleagues, and acquaintance have influenced the content of  your mental script. Continue reading “What’s in your mental script?- By Jess”
