How could

 I say this in the nicest way without truly hurting you.

Oh how I want to say what’s on my mind right now.

It’s so bad that I say nothing because I’m afraid I will just spill out of me like a waterfall.

And once it’s out I don’t care about the outcome because I’ve already wasted so much time caring about things that don’t matter.

I’m a open book but right now I’m closing my doors and packing up to go.

Nothing left to share as I realize there is so much more for me then standing here holding my tongue all day.

It’s time to just be me and let my wings out and fly away into the sun in hopes of seeing another day.

Let’s

just throw it all a way like a hat on a sunny day, when your mood is great that you feel like your floating above the clouds .

With no worry about coming back down for it is so peaceful with no care in the world on how things are going to worry because you will be back before you know it.

The quiet noise about you is the best time to focus and do what you are suppose to do for a moment like this doesn’t come around often.

Letting go!

Right

now I just want to be myself and

embrace my style even though it’s different.

I feel good and I know there is nothing that can stop me for being happy with being me.

The day is a little cloudy outside but not even the gray skies can bring my mood down.

Sometimes the sun won’t be out to brighten my day and so I must bring my own light out to shine through the clouds.

Today looks like a great day to just be me and I know even if I don’t get to do all that I want to do the little moments I do just get to smile and have a good time will be just what I need.

TRUSTING

Gravity in this moment and hoping it won’t let me fall

but if it does I will just get back up and try again.

For it is not time to give up and move on without accomplishing the things I have started now not next week but this week.

I know that the end of the month is coming to an end soon so it is time to get a move on it and do what I know what I need to do and make the most of it too.

I

am me again.

Today is full of no stress just finding things to do well taking it easy.

Time is going by so slowly and I have no care in the world  right now.

I’m as relax  as it’s going to get for me for this day that feels like a fairytale isn’t going to last forever.

But, I won’t think about the storm that will greet me on Monday.

For today is one of the best days in a long time where the sun is shining down on me and I am truly grateful.

It was

a cold day that lead to a day of snow and staying inside.

 With no worry about having to go anywhere because yesterday was all about stocking up and relaxing afterwards.

Today is a day of new possibilities all from the comfort of ones home and you have no care to go out.

Besides cleaning off the car and sidewalks and then back inside the warm house you go where all you want to do is drink hot things and eat hot or warm things and simple not worry about the things to come this week.

This day is all about not freaking out or stressing out  and to finally take your life back into your own hands.

And it feels good and you are trying so hard not to let doubt in for that really takes the fun and determination right out the window.

Today is going to be a good day because you said it was going to be and you do believe it will be.

So don’t let today get away from you because we all know tomorrow is not promised.

Only

100ww_w99

You can fill this empty space I’ve had since I could remember

at first I thought it could be filled by worldly things but nothing kept that space filled.

Until one day I knew not what to do next with the life I had made for myself from the choices I had made on my own.

So I gave my life to the lord and I was saved and everything I did or listened to felt heighten and the empty space inside of me that only he could fill was filled and overflowing.

Traveling

Photo by Daniel Minárik on Unsplash

is all I wanted to do this year as I knew I had to get to you and see you for the holidays.

Nothing can stop me from getting to you this year not even these leaves I’m about to drive through with my new red car as I make my way on the back roads this year. 

I know that I must take my time but, don’t worry I will make it in time for Thanksgiving dinner and to hug you later when our stomachs are full and her hearts are just as full too. 

Today means so much to me and I just didn’t know how much until I walked through that door and saw you sitting there with the biggest smile I ever saw on your face. 

Seeing you and hugging you was the greatest moment of my day and then came the food but, it’s you I will remember when I look back on the memories we made today.

I’m back

It’s been two long weeks and today I am back and so ready to just write and share some new pieces with everyone.

Anyways I hope everyone has had a great week and will be able to enjoy their labor day weekend.

It’s been nice to take this break and just find some much-needed peace and just let my mind relax.
