Cold Weather And Not Enough Sweaters, Life Is Complicated
Maybe it’s just me, or the world has simply become much colder and less pleasant. As if that wasn’t already the case for most of us human creatures.
I was going to post something last night, as it was International Women’s Day, but my brain just could not for the life of me write anything of necessary use. So, I apologize wholeheartedly for that.
Since we’re being honest, I must admit, writing at all has been a massive challenge recently. For some reason, it just doesn’t fit into my life at the moment.
A lot of reasons, most of them personal. Might open up on a later date, but I’ll try and see where it leads.
Updating the blog often is what I am hoping to do, in the next few months. Especially as I start on the new book project and start putting that together.
It is such a journey, all these emotions that come and go, and the people that are seemingly attached to different memories of mine.
Nostalgia petrifies me at times. That need to forget or accept the circumstances of our current state.
May your night be full of love and light.
Breaking The Ice: Heavy Thoughts & Resolutions 2019
Hello, world. I am finally back on the blog, just in time
for my annual resolutions post for the coming New Year.
You have NO idea, just how much I have missed updating-and expressing my thoughts on this platform of mine. For months on end,
I have seen others create incredible content, and envied the fact that their hearts were so inspired and motivated to do so. Keep it up, you inspire me!
Good To Be Writing Again
It’s been a rollercoaster of emotion, bittersweet encounters, and endless obstacles. But through it all, I have kept my composure and sanity in tact.
The same really can’t be said for others, however. I have experienced more betrayal and disloyalty this year, than any other. And to this day, I still can’t wrap my head around it entirely. Truth be told, I gave them enough chances.
A Struggle To Express
For weeks, I have been trying to put together this post as a whole, it was a lot harder than I anticipated. If it wasn’t for the love and support of my family and friends, I would have felt differently about 99% of 2018’s life experiences and unfortunate events. God truly blessed me in that way.
It Was A Tough Year
Ever since the year began, cracks surfaced. Things escalated to the point of no return. The damage has been done, but the strength within, it continues to thrive.
Keep Your Hope Alive
I also found myself closer to religion and faith, which I truly believe has saved me, in more ways than one. When you open your eyes to the truth, you see things from a new perspective. It helps you grow as a person, stay connected to your core beliefs and values.
Reflection & Acceptance
We are not without flaws as human beings, but having the maturity to reflect and learn from our life lessons is so important. You can only dwell on your denial for a certain amount of time, before it all collapses.
You’re Only Human
Sure, a lot of us will keep making tiny mistakes every once in a while, and we’ll most likely never learn entirely, but that’s okay too. Just because you fall once, it doesn’t mean you’re not going to get back up again.
Stay True To You
As long as you’re conscious of what is happening around you, and you’re acknowledging the root causes and accepting it for what it is, that’s a good start. We aren’t perfect, which is what makes us human. Some of us are more reserved, some of us, more outspoken. Individually complex.
For 2019’s resolutions, I wanted to keep it simple and straightforward.
Here’s my tiny list:
- submit a lot of poetry submissions
- write for my third book of poems
- become a healthier person (body, mind etc)
- read the whole Bible in its entirety
- upgrade the blog again
What are your resolutions for the New Year?
