{update} New Adventures!

It’s been a long time since I’ve been here to share a thought, poem, story, and what not. Yeap… life happens… However, I have started posting my stories on Wattpad. You can check out my author profile here. I’ll be posting a new chapter/poem for each book every week. I’m really excited about this new venture, and I hope you join me and tell me what you think! Any time I start a new story, I’ll be posting it here to keep you all updated! Here are my latest books:

{poetry} A New Day

The sun sets and rises again.
A new day.
You pray for strength to get through
The next 24 hours
Not knowing what’s going to happen within
The next 10 seconds.
They say, “Live each day as your last.”
I’m beginning to see the truth in that.
Anything can happen to anyone.
Nothing is certain.
Be grateful.
Leave selfishness at the door.
Love like you’ve never loved.
Any day can be your last.
Don’t waste time.
Tell people how you feel.
Don’t hold back.
Find courage.
Be patient.
Be thankful you’re alive.

{poetry} Heartbreak warfare

Thumping. Pounding. Banging.
The throbbing in my head gets louder
And more uncontrollable as the
Minutes go by.
It’s hard to think, speak, function.
Daily routines being forgotten.
Short-term memory out the window.
Time passes.
Will the pain go away?
The pulsation of a mediocre life
Eating away inside my head.
A clanging symbol.
Bittersweet.
No one hears it but me.
Make it stop.
Warefare. Violence. Pain.
Routine becomes taboo.
Is that why I have forgotten? Or has
The burning pain become so
Unbearable, it has turned me
Inside out?
Love lost but never forgotten.

{poetry} Blame

Blaming others for your own downfalls is pathetic.
Denial is a problem.
Drama is overrated and will be there
Regardless of whether you want it or not.

Words are just words and don’t mean
Anything unless they’re put into action. Fate is the cornerstone and
Timing is everything.
But do we really have “all the time in the world”?

The clock is ticking.
Lives are lost and new ones are created.
Every second that passes is either one
Lost or one spent
Wisely.

Don’t waste it. Appreciate it.
Look inside yourself. Find the good.
Don’t deny yourself the ability to be powerful.
Don’t be pathetic.

{poetry} Crashing down

When the walls start
Crashing down
Who am I?
An opaque window,
Forbidding the sun’s
Penetration?
Only stillness in the
Dark.
A fluttering rainbow,
Vivid and full of life?
Nothing stopping me.
Or am I just human?
Looking for an unquestionable answer.
Reaching for the solution
To the age old problem.
Why me?
But I’m just like you.
Just a person hoping to
Find what’s truly within.
A florescent soul or a
Black hole?
Neither.
Turning off the lights within would be the
Cowardly thing to do.
But the rabbit hole seems
Never ending.
Purpose. Strength. Patience.
All virtues of life
Unearthing before my very eyes.
What exactly do I do with them?
This daily scavenger hunt for
A sign will
Shatter my mind.
The search must go on.
We are all here for a
Reason. Even if the
Unknown lasts an
Eternity.

 

{poetry} Be you.

Be an inspiration.
Shine your light onto others
For your light keeps the world at bay.
Give yourself credit.
Because you
Deserve it.
Don’t cast a stone to punish another
Set an example.
Believe
In yourself. In what you do.
Set the ball in motion
And the rest will follow.
Be an inspiration.

{quote} of the day and thoughts..

“It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.” – Alan Cohen

We as humans tend to stick with what we know. Venturing off into the unfamiliar is just plain scary. I’ve learned over the years that you need you take risks in order to succeed. It doesn’t happen to those who play it safe. Take the jump, the leap of faith and put fear aside. It’s the number one thing that holds us back from what we truly want in life. Rejection is a rite of passage and will eventually be overcome. Change is power. Be powerful!

{quote} of the day…

“Never forget that you are one of a kind. Never forget that if there weren’t any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth, you wouldn’t be here in the first place. And never forget, no matter how overwhelming life’s challenges and problems seem to be, that one person can make a difference in the world. In fact, it is always because of one person that all the changes that matter in the world come about. So be that one person.” -R. Buckminster Fuller

{thoughts} first (again) of many

You know, it takes a lot out of someone to blog. Take me for example. I love to write. It relaxes me and gives me the chance to just let go and be free with my thoughts. But finding the time is tough. Being a full-time mom and working full time takes a toll on energy levels and one would prefer to be awake in order to write something that makes some sense. Unlike what I’m doing right now.

But I have a goal. One of many. But this one will remain simple and attainable (hopefully). I will write. Even if it’s just mere blabbing. It will be something. So bare with me while I gain some footing on this world of blogging. It will be quite the journey and adventure!

A little quote to settle the day:

“Give your dream a chance to live. Nurture it daily with the seeds of determination, inspiration, drive, and creativity. Feed it with passion, faith, patience, and positive expectation. Allow it to blossom by surrounding yourself with people who are doing things with their lives, and who believe in working hard to make things happen.”  – Les Brown
