Balance

There’s a balance that we often lose on a day to day basis. This loss of finding the good in bad moments, because sometimes the pain we go through blinds us from finding the bright side. There’s a process each one of us go through individually. We could be the most positive people but sometimes…

Speak Out

Silence is suffocating, It slowly makes our own inner critic stronger,And we become hostages,In believing every negative aspect about ourselves. Silence diminishes worlds of hope.It weakens our faith,And kills relationships. So take courage and pride in speaking out.We speak out to remember what we believe in,And to stand bolder than ever. We speak out the…

Transparency

Her heart ached and raced from the thought of another loss nearing. The thick veil, which shaded her heart, began disappearing. She learned how fragile and bold she could be within seconds. She learned a lesson in transparency and being true to herself. Transparency means showing sides of herself she never knew existed. It meant…

Angels

Angels: They slow you down when you’re rushing. They hold you tightly even when you’re not asking. They fill your life with warmth and laughter. They teach you to love a little deeper, And to open up a little more. As their light embraces you, It could last for a tiny moment, But in a…

Angry Bird.

My canary had an eye infection a week ago so I had to catch him twice a day to administer eye drops. I can’t help but laugh at the angry looks he gave me each time I put him back in the cage. He is fully recovered now but still glares at me each time…

You'll Remain.

You’ll remain in a place that nobody could access,In an emotion that nobody could understand. I hope you’ve found peace despite the complicated love you gave,And your strange ways of showing you cared. You’ll remain in the hearts of everyone who ever knew you,In a memory that nobody could erase. You‘ll remain in my words,In…

A Tribute.

Standing in the rain and lightning while gazing at a wall in a strange place. I was wondering how a life could suddenly end. We had passed by to check on our housekeeper who wasn’t answering her phone and the shock we had gotten, from a complete stranger, was that our housekeeper had passed away…

Lessons Grief Has Taught Me.

Grief is never consistent, you could be fine for one minute and completely break down the next. For a moment, you could be the shoulder that everyone cries on . You could feel un-stoppable and courageous just for making it through a difficult situation. Then for the next few days you could break down from…

It’s Strange.

It’s a strange feeling when you’ve learned to walk alone most of the time. Also, just when you’ve finally accepted how things have turned out, you realize your instincts have been strong this entire time. It’s even stranger when you face your past and realize the life you once desperately craved isn’t the one you…
