In this

 Moment I feel great

And alive.

The sun is shining brightly down on me

The day is heading in such a great pace.

The birds are out and singing their song and I am enjoying this moment as everything is so quiet.

The peace I feel inside is so great and amazing that no amount of words can truly capture how I feel.

It feels like everything around me has become clear and the light I desperately sighted is out shining on everything.

So I can see what is truly going on around me today.

 Nothing is left in the dark and I am not alone today and I will continue to smile and enjoy this time I have if only it last for today.

Oh

God how I saw you shining through someone today.

Their joy was so clear and so pure and full of life.

It just made me smile too and not question why he was that happy for I just knew it was because of you.

He jumped for joy when I mentioned it was always so good to see him for he always came around in such an amazing mood.

You and him made my day as you brighten the moments that made me not want to be there just be in my own zone.

You showed me that no matter how much moments feel like they are not worth smiling about, it is so worth it too just smile and enjoy others when they come around.

It’s

time to get away and let the stress wash right off of me as I sit in a new place that replace all the stress with relaxation.

To feel the joy of not having to worry about anything of anyone for right now this is my time to get lost in a good way.

To feel like there is no rush to do what I need to do and to breathe through it all because at the end its me who will have a smile on my face.

Three Line Tales, Week 154

Week 154 of Three Line Tales.

As a child the simple act of jumping to rock to rock with nothing but joy on our minds and nothing in the world was able to touch you at these times.

You laughed and you felt full with joy and happiness and it was just you and your best friend every step of the way.

You didn’t have to worry about who had your back for you knew he always would and now as adults the joy is still there but so is the sadness.

This journey

I had to take on my own 

to find what I had lost along the way. 

The pace was slow and steady

for I had nowhere to be.

No one to impress or

worry about.

This was my time to finally find out what was

really out there waiting for me.

Even now as I am back and things

have not changed much. 

I know I can handle it all being thrown at 

me even when it hurts and leaves a scar. 

I will still hold up my head and know that 

I made it through it all at the end with some happiness shining 

down on me again.

This peace

was all I needed as life just seemed to become to black and white.

The color that would brighten up my days had faded so much that I didn’t know

how my life used to be before the darkness took over.

I feel at peace with everything even though the crazy circus that is called my life has not changed much.

I am okay with the things I can not control and I try with all my might to fix and help the things In my life I can change to become better and smoother.

Today I am me again and tomorrow who knows what will happen but, I’m happy to be here to breathe the fresh air and to once in a while feel the beauty that peace can give me.

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.

I never

meant to let you into the truth that showed you the real me the part not many know about but I took the risk that day.

And now I still don’t regret it but as you watch out for me day and night I feel so grateful for your protection.

The days that are good become great when you are around and the days that a bad never really seem that bad when you come around and smile at me.

I never thought something this good could happen to me and last for such a long time.

beauty in on place

I can’t stop looking up at the sky and seeing the colors mix with the clouds.

As another great day beginnings for me

and I start to realize that I have a lot to be grateful for.

And this is the time when everything is shining down on me and I have to step out of the darkness to see how much the light has to offer me.

The darkness will not be around as much and I know I will truly be looking forward to the days that feel so good and peaceful to me.

Looking for more signs things are really turning around and as I search I know I must capture all the good times along the way.
