What are You grateful for?

August 11, 2020

   Simple question to ask yourself. What are you grateful for today?

   For me, I'm grateful for all the good people in my life who share love, compassion and kindness. Who accepts me for me and doesn't ask or try to mold me into their expectations. I'm grateful for their smiles, their views on life, their very being.

   But I'm also grateful for the not so good people as you can't have the good without the bad in life. I'm grateful for the lessons and growth I've learned. 

   I appreciate life, even when some days feel heavy, I'm grateful. 

   I'm grateful, thankful for many things. But I think the point of this post is to find the beauty in life because it's all around and so are beautiful souls. Take nothing and no one for granted. Tell those you care and love that you appreciate them. Say a simple hello or give a hug. Send a simple text or write a nice note. The little things matter, simplicity can be the most beautiful of all.

   I hope whoever reads this smiles today.

 

Another sleepless night.

August 11, 2020

  Tick tock, tick tock, goes the clock. Can't fight the night, ya know that's right.

   ...Corny...

   Skimming through music and listening to music I used to listen to back in the day. From Coolio, 2Pac, Snoop, Bone Thugs, Notorious B, Warren G, to Elton John, Etta James, Eminem, Queen,  you name it. To now, Ollie, Maroon 5, Ed Sheeran, John Legend, Sam Smith, Billie Eilish, etc., and just smashing it all onto a playlist. Kinda been feelin old vibes with music lately. 

   I love the oldies, but...

Night turns to day...

August 6, 2020

  This morning I watched the sky change from night to day. The colors some days are more vibrant than others. Kind of like us, our vibrancy changes like the hues of the sky. But, it's kind of beautiful if you think about it. We're always changing, shifting.

   No doubt my thoughts were running again, but when aren't they. Some nights sleep is an enemy and some nights nightmares like to play. It is what it it.

   As I sit listening to the earth and its occupants wake, watch the trees and the sky...

Tonight thoughts and alcohol won...

August 2, 2020

  Today's just one of those days. 

   I've had too much wine once in a while, but this evening my thoughts got the best of me and I found comfort in stronger alcohol.

   I'm only human and things get to me sometimes. 

   I'm not always just going to post the upbeat stuff, I'm keeping it real and posting my not so positive stuff because I think we can all relate and life isn't always rainbows, unicorns and butterflies. I have my faults just like everyone else. And I don't always have positive day...

Self worth

July 29, 2020

  Have you ever sat and listened to multiple motivational videos or podcasts for inspiration? I enjoy listening to them and watching them because even though we can be empowered ourselves, I find there is always something new to learn and be empowered by others P.O.V.

   There's a quote I really liked, 

   "We would rather stay in a comfortable pain than go seek an unfamiliar peace."

   It's true a lot of times because we do get so comfortable in that cycle that we keep ourselves from moving for...

Insomnia

July 29, 2020

  I guess it's another sleepless night with my eyes heavy yet can't seem to close. Insomnia sucks ass, but it is what it is, I'll work with it.

   Poured a few glasses of wine hoping it would help me relax enough to sleep. Lol, not much help tonight. I'm awake probably for the next 24 hours being work is early morning till evening.

   My mind is crowded with thoughts. I love the night though and I'm somewhat tempted to just drive around for a few hours with the music playing loud. 

   There's ju...

Progression

July 28, 2020

...Progression, the art of moving forward...

   Baby steps taken end up to become big steps in the long run. 

   Finally a call to an appointment I've been waiting for for the positive progression in my life. I've been patient yet persistent to get shit done. You have to be in life with whatever it is. You can't rush, but you can't sit around either.

   I feel like all areas of my life are heading towards a brighter path, I just feel it. Although sometimes I can get discouraged, we're only human...

Randomness

July 27, 2020

  Affirmations are an encouragement you give to yourself. To start your day off and end your day with yourself and positive encouragement. This is one I tell myself each day.

  I cut all ties that bind me to negative thoughts, feelings and people. I'm mine and I'm free!

   Another is,

   I am worthy of love, friendship and beauty. I let no one hold me down nor chase anyone for their company. My time and my heart are valuable and I will not settle for less than my worth.

   It may sound silly to s...

And I wonder...

July 26, 2020

     There's a peek of the crescent amongst the clouds tonight. 

   My thoughts are running like the wine emptying from my glass, the taste lovely as the night. 

   The grass beneath my bare feet, the earth kissing my feet and all I wanna do is lose myself in its essence, yet there's somewhat of a departure as life moves forward and all I want to do is smile and make others smile. And all I want to do is love...and to be loved.

   So I stand here asking the moon to help me breathe, to hold me cl...

Find the beauty in your days.

July 22, 2020

   Sometimes you really don't need words to feel the beauty and just be grateful.

   Today I feel grateful for everything and everyone in my life who makes me smile, who cares and loves me. I don't need a million dollars to feel like the richest person on earth, love, smiles, compassion, kindness and embracing those I care about most and feeling their embrace makes me feel like the richest person in the world.

  I am so truly grateful for the little things that are indeed grand. Like a warm hug...
