Alive

There’s your right and your wrong

there’s your ceiling and your floor

But my right is not your right

and your lies are absolutely my wrong

There’s a path I chose to take

it was dark and winding

it was lonely

the type of lonely I wish on no one

but I persevered

and I came back

with new thoughts and new ideas

and a refusal to be part of the status quo

and

A refusal to return to the chains that bound me

My Top 5 Distractions

We all have a few things that we just can’t seem to tear ourselves away from. It adds time onto my writing but I have no regrets. We all need brain breaks, right? Here’s my top 5 from least distracting to greatest

5. Cleaning.

There is always cleaning to do. When I sit down to write if I see something I can sort out quickly, I will do it. Then once I start on that small task I find another thing, then another, and I have to remind myself that my story isn’t going to write itself.

4. The Outdoors.

I will, mid writing, get up and sit outside in the sun.Simply cuz I want some vitamin Sun splashed on my face.

The Feels

I have gone through my own rough times. I have pretended like I didn’t care about things till I truly didn’t care about them. I didn’t want to care anymore. I wanted my feelings to go away so I could just move forward in life and not be held down by them. I hurt myself in the process. Losing my feelings made it so that people couldn’t hurt me

Don’t Let Anxiety Keep You From Greatness

When I was a little girl I was scared of everything. After I had my first daughter, I realized I was capable of so much more than I thought. Not only did I push her out naturally, but I also successfully breastfed her for a year while working full time. The world became my oyster and that’s when I began to face my fears.

Uncategorized Writing

I write to get it of my chest

To experience my thoughts as a mirror

To experiment thoughts I haven’t quite thought

I write so you aren’t alone

So I’m not alone

To have something to reflect on

And to prepare myself for the worst

To get myself through the worst

It’s truth

It’s fiction

It’s both

It’s a collection of so many things that can’t be categorized

It’s my art
