Walking

Credit attached I’m in a new season of life. I don’t feel strong; I don’t feel emotionally capable of sounding ok or writing about all the positivity I have been. The very idea of positivity sounds patronizing to me right now…. But I’m just hurting…. And with hurt comes grief and anger. What’s going on? I’m walking… In an opposite direction, alone. I don’t want to, and I don’t know how long I’ll feel this way. I do know that the road feels bleek. The ugliest shades of winter and gray, overcast and cold. Sounds so depressing just to think … Continue reading Walking

Love

What love isn’t Easy A feeling Getting your way all the time Endless supply of money Selfishness Stagnant Lusting after another Emotional attention given /received from someone other than partner Munipulation Apathetic Withholding Emotionally unattached Lack of willingness to understand Choose not to communicate effectively Found at the bottom of a bottle Doing what you want over what you need to do Comfortable lying Incapable of working through conflict Seeking attention Unaccountable of self Insecure Envious Unforgiving Unmerciful Lacks grace Jealous Untrustworthy Replaceable I thought I knew what love was, but I didn’t. I didn’t love myself ; therefore, I … Continue reading Love

#bloomwhereyouareplanted

I’m so thankful to live this life, open-hearted to “the possible”… With faith bigger than fear, and my eyes focused on truths. So much could destroy me… Bitter my heart, send me down a dark rabbit hole… I Know that my ONLY limitation is myself… And I’m entirely too curious and stubborn to get in my own damn way! #blessed #youpeoplearefabulous #choices #mylife #makingadifference #bloomwhereyouareplanted Continue reading #bloomwhereyouareplanted

Daily Writing Challenge: (3TC)

Daily Writing Challenge hosted by The Haunted Wordsmith 3TC: hope, love, lost This word combination is ironically the entire purpose of living… Hope is that which we want. It’s belief in something yet to happen, but that we feel can and will happen… A great job, an answered prayer for a loved one, a passing grade on a test, an acceptance into the first college of choice. At some point, we all hope for the attention of an individual of which we find attractive. We hope this individual looks our direction, and finds us attractive in return. It’s a funny … Continue reading Daily Writing Challenge: (3TC)

Lettrs: Hoorah

Gretchen is like so many others, above and beyond what’s asked of her, selflessly giving, dedicated worker, loyal to work and family. She managed, though, to trip into some sticky situations with a monster of a spouse, and a greedy employer. We’ve been in situations that have been sticky, haven’t we? Our choices have gotten us in a bit of a mess, but hindsight is 20/20. Her instance was rather serious. She needed to act fast, and finally put herself first… To protect her life! Are you in that position? Are you holding on to something that’s destroying you, your … Continue reading Lettrs: Hoorah

A Beginner at an Ending

Right now, I’m watching a Netflix Original Series , “The L Word”. In this particular segment, Jenny, a compulsive and inspiring author, is meeting with an editor. She’s been diligently writing from the moment her character was introduced in Season 1. Her script has finally landed in the hands of a publisher, who’s desire is to put her story out “there”. Jenny’s in tears; she celebrates out loud… In the very moment she opens the envelope of her first advancement. The plot twist: Jenny’s story is dark. As her words formulated on paper, she relived every single haunting detail of … Continue reading A Beginner at an Ending

Disagreement Thereafter

She looked at him. He looked at her. Their eyes spoke of places they’ve vacationed, laughs they’ve had, and challenges they’ve triumphed. With a smile, subtle but genuine, she mumbled, “Your hand I will always take. Your heart I will always trust. Your love I will always call home. No matter what disagreement may come. I will always stay in this world of “me & you”… it’s the only place that makes sense. It’s the only place where I am whole.” He kissed her forehead, and the love birds strolled down the beach, hand in hand,.. on that perfect summer … Continue reading Disagreement Thereafter

The Circle Ends

So why do I say we’ve seemingly forgotten the concept of give and take? Because humans decide to do what’s best for him/herself. Because humans decide to be selfish and speak/act in such a way that suits his/her needs. Now, read that correctly. I said humans.. not “all” humans. SO HERE’s the catch: Some humans mistreat others. Some humans demonstrate ungratefulness and unkindness, violence, and self destruction. Some humans speak with arrogance and ignorance. And yet, they Complain when they’re taken for granted, backstabbed, abused. Wear the frown in their “dark and grey” world. Are confronted with friction from others, difficulty when needing help, and unforeseen … Continue reading The Circle Ends

The Endless Circle

Plants bloom and wilt. Babies are born, and people die. Structures go up, and buildings are torn down. The cycles in life seem to be continuous. In some instances, unfortunately, the cycle stops. Species of animals and plants become extinct. Imagine how these cycles would look if each participated with his/her own best interest at heart. How different would this world be if honey bees just decided not to pollinate. How ugly would this planet look if trees and grass, flowers, and water didn’t work together and provide for one another? What if the sun just stopped turning, and we were stuck in mid-darkness! The concept … Continue reading The Endless Circle
