Not every

moment is about me or you

but when you take one day to appreciate someone else, it makes you feel good.

For you made someone else smile, cry happy tears, and hug you like there is no tomorrow.

For there may not be and in the end do you want to be the person who is selfish and missed out on so much or the person who was selfless and gave what they could.

But still made time for themselves when it all came down to this world.

I guess we will have to see as today is mother’s day and today is not just the only day to celebrate a mother.

But it’s a day we can go out a little more and in the end we know what our mothers have done for us.

But yet again not every story is the same and so celebrate the way you want and connect or reconnect.

Just live your journey and I hope nothing but the best for you as we head into a new day today

I feel the

chill in my bones as it rains again, and the temperature continue to drop.

Feeling as if the winter never left.

Don’t want to get up and get out from under my warm sheets for the cold will only wrap it’s self around me again.

And well, I just want to dream of the warmth and the peace when my reality was simple.

With no problems to solve because I had the tough stuff figured out and all I had to do was go through with the plan.

What am I

doing wrong as the days go by and everything seems to pass me by and I should try harder to get it all done.

But here I am literally sitting in fear of writing because it may be no good or today could be the day you leave for good.

And maybe that wouldn’t be a bad thing if it’s not the end to writing or feeling like a writer.

Words come and go and all I can think of is how everything else is calling to me and even though I try to ignore them and write.

I know that won’t happen and the more I sit here trying to itch this craving that the results will be the same and there will be no relief for me because this is how my life is and I need to accept it.

Maybe I will able to write again but today just doesn’t feel like my day.

Just being

myself as I smile into the camera

not worrying about looking this way or that way for my way is always great for me.

To smile again in front of your camera. I didn’t think I would see you so soon, but here we are enjoying life.

But being safe while living the new life that is in front of us with no regrets or fears as we make the best of our situation.

Hoping this time will lead to more times and more memories as the days go on this week.

Not knowing

How things will go next makes life hard sometimes, but it is not a reason to give up.

For it is not the time to settle for right now. This fight is not over, but it has just started again.

Because you are doing more and more and this time around, you won’t give up even when you slip up.

For Slip up is not a reason to just accept that you have failed again because there will always be slip-ups in my life and your life.

So let’s embrace them and keep going even though we never done this before. I know that I’m tired of saying what I want to change and nothing changing in the end.

I’m ready to say it and deliver it and then look back and say settling wasn’t an option this time, just action and following up on everything.

For I don’t want to be the reason I’m holding myself back anymore.
