To think

of warmer days and to feel the warm always on me.

So cold outside and inside is making these days very hard.

As I grow cold very quickly and time doesn’t go by as fast as I would like.

I know warmer days are coming and I am really looking forward to so much more.

Today is cold now but soon it will warm up and nothing will be in my way as I begin to explore what this world has to offer me again.

To beat

alina-lobanova-JdIctutgMBA-unsplashPhoto by Alina Lobanova on Unsplash

the cold I had to put on my fur and have my lantern  guide the way as I travel back to my home on this almost dark night.

This winter has barely arrived and already it is cold and warm than back to cold and frankly I have had enough and I just want to cuddle up and not be bother with the cold air form outside.

But tonight I have to  acknowledge all that is going on around me for I have so much to look for and to look forward too.

For the winter has delivered me something to be grateful for.

Merry Christmas

 To everyone or happy Hanukkah.

I hope we all enjoy this day even if some of you have to work.

Just be grateful you get to see the day and share the joy with whoever you can.

Enjoy the time with family and friends and enjoy the little moments that will pop up through out the day.

And just know that even if you didn’t get what you wanted, I’m sure you got what you needed and if not don’t wait around for someone else to give it to you.

Because in just a few days it will be a new year and I hope you have plans to make things different but for now have a merry Christmas and I hope every moment of your day is blessed and full of love and laughter.

Blinded

 by the pain and frustration

That I don’t see the change that is happening around me.

You see I’ve been in the dark with just a flashlight of light and when that window of light shined down on me.

I didn’t notice something had awakened in me.

For it felt no different than the Tuesday before.

But, somehow the energy I was feeling felt so pure and powerful.

It wasn’t until I saw his eyes what I had been trying to see in my owns.

The look was light itself shining back at me with no darkness around and as he stepped cross to me.

I swear I saw an angel in Him and what to come next was nothing short of a miracle.

Move with

Me as I let go of these things that are holding me back.

It’s time to have fun to walk into the unknown with a smile on my face.

For I know it is a safer place for me then the ones I know of.

Today will be great for I’m ready for the joy that is waiting for me on the other side of this fountain.

She is

 So full of life and the energy she has never seems to dim down.

She knows the cold is coming and she refuses to let that damper her day or night.

She will keep going forward no matter how much someone tries to come for her.

Her smile along can weaken any evil thing around her, for her light outshines them all .

There is not one dark moment that ever truly brought her down for long.

She is the happiness and good energy I want to see in myself when the days become too dark and cold.

My

Moment is now and I know it’s not wanted you expected.

Or accepted but it’s what makes me who I am today.

It’s not what I’m thought would be the endgame for me.

But the joy it brings lights me up like a Christmas tree.

And the light in me doesn’t go away even as the seasons and holiday changes.

It grows and builds up until the walls

around me are harder to break down and the words you try to use against me don’t hold any leverage.

And there are no cracks in my wall for them to sneak into.

They are just being shouted outside and for that I can be in some peace and quite.

It’s

time to get up and not let those things that are trying to put you down.

Be allowed to control your mood and ability to get up and enjoy life anymore.

It’s time to let the inner warrior come out and not go back until you have won all the battles that are making you second guess what you want in life and what you need in your life right now.

It’s time to smile more and stress less as the day begins to whine down and the calm is in the air it is time to reflect on the things in your life that make you who you are or who you are going to be.

Together

We out shine the darkness around us

even on the hottest days when we can’t seem to cool off.

The days when everything feels against us and we don’t know who is standing by us anymore.

The words said by the people we trusted aren’t as true as they used to be.

Standing on the outside looking in is how we feel sometimes but we know the light will outshine the darkness in the end.

We know together our light is the way for us and  together we will stay strong and loyal.
