When Grief Knocks On Your Door….

When grief knocks on your door several times….You learn to re-build a new life that will never be the same as the old one.You learn to grieve all the old times.You learn to get by the bad moments by connecting with others,And trying to support the people around you. You learn to let the difficult…

Fuel For This Journey

Belly laughs, a child’s smile, a loving gesture, reconnecting with an old friend, knowing your loved ones are safe, connecting with nature, the sky, the sea, the trees. Loving until your heart bursts, knowing nothing is permanent, loving unconditionally, hearing a story from a child’s perspective, writing from the heart.  Getting kisses from your pets,…

World Building.

Inspired by Neil Gaiman’s Masterclass. That world you’re building, does it tell stories of sadness and heartbreak?Does it tell a mystery story or science fiction?How many parts of yourself will you include in this world?How many moments from your life will you include? And from how many points of view?Will you tell stories that you’ve…

About Friendship

Sometimes we shut the door on people who are trying their best to understand us. We lose them because we’re afraid to lose control. We’re afraid to break our own barriers and let them into the life we perfectly planned. We’re scared to admit that we lost control of who comes in through that door….

It’s Time

Maybe now is the time to celebrate our vulnerabilities,Time to take a deep look inside and see what we can do to brighten each day. Maybe now is the time to forgive and leave the past behind us, Time to learn to get by with much less than we were used to. Maybe now is…

When people say the wrong things,Leave a little space for forgiveness. When all the doors have closed,Leave a little space for the unpredictable. When…

If

If you fall down and a piece of you breaks on the ground, Just leave it there, because trying to force the pieces back in place will only weigh you down. Focus on finding ways of getting right up. If your path gets too foggy that you can’t see clearly, Focus on what’s already around…

Emotions

Sometimes it doesn’t matter how open minded we are, or how happy and perfect our lives seem to be. There is so much we can never discuss. Especially, when there’s an emotion we can’t name, buried deeply inside of us. No matter how prepared we think we are for life, sometimes our souls get weary…

A Huge Thank you.

2019 has been all about balance for me. Balancing the good and the bad. Facing emotions that terrified me. I owe a lot to this beautiful community and to everyone who has given me writing advice here. I owe a lot to the dreamers who never quit and made it to their destination before me….

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…
