A serene and endless satin blue
Gentle ripple overlaid on pastel hue,
The compass points but lost in directions,
360 degree views towards all horizons,
Baffling winds they randomly toil,
Upon our vessel a dreaded turmoil,
yesterday you knew which way to go,
Your direction so clear, obvious to know,
Looking out at the endless blue,
It is the same, but now a deep foreboding view,
A peaceful quiet oscillates outside,
But the storm it brews deep inside,
Idle and fixed, with nothing to occupy,
Our mind turns against us, save us we cry,
The doldrums are here and they stay for time,
I hope to keep it together, this head of mine.
Weekly theme of nautical, please enjoy my doldrum.

" This is the time of vision, love, growth, focus, and action. Vision in acknowledging both the past and ones limitless potential, love in those around you and yourself, growth in mindset and action in seizing each day⚡️
With a heightened awareness, welcome the new year with open arms. Practice straying away from social media, not because your heart does not go out to all, but understand how important it is to live in the present moment. Dedicate time to nourishing your art and soul. Everything we need is in front and within us, but we must look up and in✨
Refuse to get lost in the inauthentic. Go towards your full potential coming into this next rotation of the earth around the sun.☀️
More than anything, be a good person. Be kind, patient, aware and accepting of those around you. Let your dreams, love, and limits know no bounds." - Beautiful words by our lovely @emilyfrancesberry 🔥🔥🔥
I will be long gone
but my words
will echo in your
and some memories
that behold them
will whisper in your
to never lose
hope - Rimsha Jairajpuri @rimshascorner #rimshajairajpuripoetry
You. You're beautiful and you deserve to feel that way about yourself. You don't need to stare in mirror trying to convince yourself of that. I'll do that for you and tell you that you're beautiful everyday. But don't think I don't mean it either, because you really are so beautiful and I mean it. I'm just telling you what I can't believe every guy hasn't told you. I can't look at you more than a minute without muttering it under my breath, that you're beautiful. Show me every spot you see a flaw and I'll kiss it and show you it's not a flaw, and that I love you unconditionally. Tell me every damaging thing anyone has ever said and let me look you in the eyes to tell you, that you're perfect the way you are. You're good enough. You're worth it. You're are unique and that's perfect. I'm going to prove to you that someone can and will fall in love with the real and complete you, because I have. Let me show you the difference between a man and a boy, and how neither has power over you. Let me show you how I can go at your pace and never force or rush you. Darling, let me show you how you should be loved. Let me make sure you're comfortable always and that you're safe. Let me give you a safe place to be completely yourself and never be judged for anything. Please don't mistake my motives, I do not do this to boast myself. I do this to help make you unbreakable, always. Not just with me either. When you meet other men in your life, I want you to be able to tell the difference between the lust or the caring love in their eyes. I want you to be able to tell the difference between a man who's going to offer to sleep on the floor or the one who's going to make every effort to get into your bed. You. Are. Worth. It. And you do not need to settle for someone who does not see that. Let me do that for you. Let me show you, all that you are.
Nobodies lives just fit together, you have to work at it. Humans by nature are sinful,selfish and look for the path of least resistance. We resist change and by default we resist anything that requires too much effort and does not come with an inspirational how to book. Thus we tend to pass over people because unlike things,jobs and achievements, humans require much more effort, prayer and steps of faith and worse still, they don't come with an instruction manual or even a TED talk. So if you want someone to stay in your life, prove it with your actions. We meet great people everyday, people who could bless us and sometimes they are just that, a passing wind but those that God keeps bringing back into your life are those that you need to ask Him for the grace and wisdom to put effort into. So reach out today to someone who has blessed you because no matter what anyone tells you, great things do not just happen, they are worked on.
The house still had touches of Danny’s mom scattered about, from the potpourri that hadn’t been changed in two years to the crocheted blanket still draped lovingly over the couch. The only corner of the house not touched by a female was where Mr. Henderson watched his games and where he currently sat. “Mr.H!,” I burst out and ran to hug him. Losing his wife had definitely taken a toll. He had once been vibrant and full of life, but a gloom now rested about him. “Well little Laura, I thought for a moment and angel was descending my staircase,” he smiled and winked. “Dad, she doesn’t need an old man flirting with her,” Danny teased as he stepped into the room. He had obviously just come in from the stables, he still had hay on his shirt. “Besides, she’s only got eyes for me,” he said with a wink. “Both of you are handsome and any woman would be lucky to have you. Unfortunately I’m not looking for love right now,” I knocked Danny in the side with my elbow. I wasn’t here looking for a husband. I would’ve stayed home if that’s what I wanted, but I was flattered by their teasing.
I must have gotten a weird look on my face because Danny asked, “Are you okay?”
“Yeah I’m fine. I was just thinking about something that I came here to forget.” The guys looked at each other and must have had the same idea. They said “triple chocolate ice cream” at the same time.
Danny explained that he had gone shopping for all of my old favorites after I asked to come stay. The rest is in the comments below 👇🏻 I got a little carried away and wrote too much.

AUTO NOTA 💕
No siempre es facil ser fuerte y feliz allá afuera.
No siempre nos sentimos poderosas e invencibles.
No todos los días son brillantes y llenos de oportunidades.
Hay días, semanas y meses que son complicados.
Te sientes despeinada, te duele el alma, te ataca la soledad y te golpea la hormona.
Florecer no siempre es sencillo, hay que llenarse de lodo, de tierra, de vientos intempestivos…
Y seguir adelante...librar batallas ((especialmente internas)) Creersela, saberse valiente y valiosa; saberse valiente por el solo hecho de tratar y salir a pelear.
Saberse valiosa porque eres TU, en toda tu despeinadez, toda tu dislexia, toda tu con el desorden hormonal y TODA TU con las ganas de tratar todos los días.
Quiero decirte que SI, eres invencible, que SI, eres poderosa y sobre todo, eres suficientemente VALIOSA, solo por el hecho de haber salido a pelear esa batalla que tanto te daba miedo hoy.
Eres ADMIRABLE solo por el hecho de haber tomado tu mejor cara y haber enfrentado al mundo, sin miedo, O CON EL, saliste y fuiste valiente.
¡Te admiro! Porque yo también peleo todas las mañanas como tu, pa ser la mejor versión de mi misma. ¡Y aqui estoy! RIÉNDOME de mis intentos fallidos, celebrando mis pequeñitos triunfos y aprendiendo que solo cayéndome voy a aprender, dejándome de castigar por caerme. Siendo más noble conmigo misma.
A ti que lees esto, quiero decirte que trates tan fuerte como sea posible,siempre es posible, que tengas miedo y con ese mismo miedo, salgas a pelear.
Por que eres FUERTE, ADMIRABLE Y VALIENTE.
YO CREO EN TI.
YO SOY TU.
Todas somo una. Y estamos en esta batalla juntas.
Te celebro infinitamente por lo valiente que eres.
Con el talento de 📸♥️ @lorerag
I'm not quite sure how it happened,
Your voice has become the thunder
And what was a gentle storm is raining glass
Lightening glancing off of each drop's edge
Capturing it and fracturing it
Into a million pieces of glitter
Like a beautiful yet twisted disco
Still I continue to dance in the rain
And with my eyes closed,
It's hard to tell the difference between water and blood
An open letter to my soulmate:
Without you, my flowers still bloom.
But all the colors have lost their luster in your absence. You've eclipsed my lovesickness with your logic and your reasoning, and how dare you, because I've never yet felt this way.
-with your rude interjections into my thoughts, when I am trying to find a way to live without you. But I am starting to enjoy my solitude.
It frightens me how much you are on my mind. It frightens me how much I care about you. I could have never hurt you, but sometimes when I'm feeling terrible, I think that I really should have.
But I could have never, for you are the piece that is missing. The section of life's puzzle: incomplete.
Why am I waiting here in the darkness?
Why am I waiting for a guide who doesn't know the way? A shepherd who doesn't call my name?
But how can I let go of the dandelion dreams that you released from the corners of my eyes? Do you feel your chest constricting with this tragic longing? (I do.) Do you feel your skin tightening with secret wanting? (I do.)
My dandelion wishes are slipping to the breeze, and from my knees I am begging for answers.
THIS is my punishment
How could I expect you to protect my soul, when you never gave any indication that it would be so?
My New #Blog Post is Live! "How a Garden Grows" - Because it's a new year. And I've been on a fake date since I talked to you last. Also, I do not have a green thumb in case you're wondering...I also manage to include a Baby Boom/Diane Keaton reference once again, and I'm absolutely okay with it. xx -- ✨✨✨ || Link to this new post can be found in my IG bio 💛🌿
