Oh how

You are always on my mind and always in my heart.

You are my guide through this all.

And lately I haven’t been my best and yet you have stayed by my side.

For you are my God and through it all I truly know I can overcome it all.

Especially when I am a mess and nothing seems to make sense but when I let go.

And wake up the next day you always deliver just what I need.

And for that I am so grateful and I know through the struggles.

You will be there and I accept the hard times because when it’s easy it always feels like something missing.

The struggle make somethings so clear and true.

And for that I am thankful and light right now as nothing holds me back.

You came

Back and yes it was a surprise

For I just thought about reaching out to you.

Then there you were standing tall with a smile on your face, begging me to step closer.

And I knew I couldn’t stay mad and so forgiveness was given and the distance between us was closed.

Oh how nice it has been to see you again it’s like everything has fade and in the moment it’s my favorite time of year again.

It’s like nothing changed and those first moments we spent together came right back.

Today would forever be great because of our reconnection no matter how crazy it got.

No

 Complaints as the life on the other side is greener than before.

I don’t regret leaving because of the risk for the first time is worth it.

Maybe I have become stronger and so the things that used to scare me off from taking that leap.

Is now far from my mind as I make my next move.

And I know that I will be just fine as I make a move that will change me for the better.

I know that things will become more clearer as I learn so much more.

I feel the excitement running through me as the days start to add up and the count down begins.

It’s time to enjoy this moment of rest and know things will turn out as long as I have faith gods plan for me and faith that whatever happens is better than if I planned it myself.

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.

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.
