You with your long, wispy branches I respect how you weep for those so lost in sadness. But, what if, instead of weeping you told a joke? Would those who suffer temporarily forget their sadness? What if they laugh, laugh so hard they cry? Remembering life is only as sad as the saddest thought refusing … Continue reading Willow weeping
Focused on what’s gone instead of what’s left. Scared for what could happen instead of loving the moment. Stop letting fear win. Bask in the possibilities of what still might be.

I cannot stay for you are my suffering and my body yearns for the light. So I give thanks for your expired guidance. Say goodbye my love, to this distorted reflection. And I move on with the graceful speed of a hummingbird. Gone before you take my hand, jailing me here forever.

I look past you, a beggar on the street, I divert my eyes, fill my ears with busy thoughts to ignore your pleas (as if I could escape you). Emptiness takes over like a shadow growing larger as the sun changes direction. --- I crave you more than I crave the quiet that comes with … Continue reading Happiness
When flying, I prefer the window seat rather than an aisle seat. The first time I flew on a plane I was 18. Eighteen years old and I probably weighed about 230 pounds. I was uncomfortable with the amount of space I took up, so I liked ensuring I had a little more room and … Continue reading Mental Reflection
This morning I needed to peruse positivity quotes on Pinterest to re-center myself. Sometimes I need reminders that I am trying to be a better person and let go of bad habits. Something as simple as "expect nothing, appreciate everything" or "no matter how long you have traveled in the wrong direction, you always have … Continue reading Destroying My Own Worst Enemy with Gratitude
