Today is Day 4, or things I can't live without. There are a lot of things that make my life complete and keep me happy, healthy, and organized. It's always good to reflect on what you need in your life so you know what to cut out and what to always make a priority.

Number One: My phone. Yeah, yeah, a cliche, but I am for sure one of those kids who can't ever get off her phone. I can't help it! Yeah, it's a crutch, but it's an extremely useful crutch that has my life on it. It helps me be creative and reach out to other creative people.

Number Two: My friends. The people I've welcomed as my family mean everything to me and I love them so much. They've saved my life and I've saved theirs in return and I can't thank them enough for everything they've done. Even for an introvert like myself, life is better with friends by your side because you know they'll always love you and stand by you. They'll always be there for you in good times and bad.

Number Three: Healthy food! I'm really trying to get fit and healthy and I love being motivated by seeing cute pictures of food. I'm trying to go vegan and I'm a week in and I already feel healthier. Allowing myself to be motivated by health and telling myself I don't need waste is finally allowing me to get the control in my body I've always wanted.

Number Four: My journals and stationery. I need a lot of motivation in my life to get up and do the work I have to do and plan out my day. It's hard for me to stay strong and focused on many things, like diet and schoolwork, and finding an aesthetic way to do it really motivates me to be strong and keep going. Bullet journaling is relaxing and fun as long as you don't see it as a chore. It keeps my life together and keeps me motivated to do schoolwork and have an organized life.

Number Five: My happiness. I try not to let my anxiety and depression get in the way of my life anymore. It can be so hard sometimes. But it's something I need to do to grow and finally be happy. Sometimes I have to pull myself to be happy but I know that it is real and it is life changing.

So those are the five things I can't live without (excluding water, shelter, air, clothes, all that jazz). What are yours? Don't hesitate to let me know! I love talking to you guys and love you all to the moon and back.
