To feel

the light shining down on me repeatedly today

as I feel the love and blessing coming this way this year.

Day one has started off just right and I know and feel the next few days will be just as great.

But, I  won’t plan too far ahead for I know there are going to be a couple surprises this year that not even I will see coming.

Happy Thanksgiving

Everyone I hope you get to enjoy your day whether you are off or have to work.

And hopefully, the weather will be nice it was really windy here last night but I’m hoping to sit back and be able to relax.

For I know black Friday I will be at it again with no hope or luck insight.

Good

Company makes the tiring and long days not as bad as you would think.

You know when you have the right people around that things will work out in your favor.

You start looking forward to seeing these people and even though you have to work, you start to become a family and you have each other backs.

You know that things will be okay, you understand each other and know that sometimes someone is going to be off and you are there to help out a little bit more just to make things better for them.

You do your best because you want to work hard as a team and at the end of the day, your success is their success too.

Your happy and laughter and wouldn’t trade it in for anything but, maybe a couple of days off but you know you will be missed.

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a great new year eve and now a great start to this new year.

May many blessings come your way this year and you live your life for you and not what others think you should.

Don’t be afraid to break out of your box and try new things life is too short to live it on repeat.

Lets all take a risk and live this new year for a brand new start and don’t think about the bad luck or things that happened in the past.

For you are in the present and this moment is for you to decide what you want to do next.

Do you see

me now as the leaves float around and you capture me through the hole in the leaf as we walk along the path in the forest.

We love fall as all the leaves fall down all around us, we are  in our favorite spot always hoping to capture a photo that will completely capture the amazing forest during  the morning time.

It’s cold out this morning what we wouldn’t miss out on a walk together before we start our day.

These walk help us grow together as we take the time to just talk and be one with no worry about what time we have to get back for its our time and it’s the weekend so the time and day is ours to do with.

You told me to stare to east and wait until you came back for me and as I waited I just knew you were trying to find a way to make one of the photos just a little more unique than the one we took this last week.

You amaze me every time you capture something new and show me the world from a new view and I start to wonder how many views there is on this world.

I mean you can take a photo in so many ways and people see the world in so many ways and live it differently too.

But, the way you view the world always just seemed so true to you and you didn’t always agree with others views but you respected them enough to let them do what they felt was right instead of insisting they live the way you do.

Here we go

100 word Wednesday

Here we go onto the escalator as we head in the direction of our destination

to be free and get time off without stressing over work and anything else.

To finally get to enjoy the breeze and fresh air outside and not just the cold A.C. inside your job.

To be around different people and not feel like you can’t be yourself and just enjoy the time you have to yourself.

The days you got off will be spent enjoying the life that you need a break from and to not have someone question you about anything just felt so nice and relaxing for the feeling of not being overwhelmed is the best feeling in your world right now.

Your

going places and life isn’t slowing down for you just to enjoy the little moments in life.

You blink and what felt like a minute really was an hour and soon your day is almost over and you just wanted to breathe and not be stressed out for a minute.

But, life is pulling you in so many directions that you don’t have time to relax let alone do what you need to do before it’s dark out.

You want to slow down but you have become more than what you were before and so many people now count on you more.

The little responsibilities you had before are now like a tower and every time you get it low it rises back up.

You want to be back in the moment when you didn’t have so much on your plate but the past is the past.

And now you have to try to make the things of the present work out for you or you will continue to stumble around.

Now is your time to claim what you were always meant to do and not let it go, no matter how stressful it gets don’t let those things break you.

You turn them around so they give you strength and it favors you in the end results.

The beach

Summers coming to an end and the beach has been calling my name

I’ve been so busy.

That I just keep ignoring its call like an unwanted caller.

But, this week just was too much and at the last-minute I threw everything I needed

for a fun day at the beach into my car.

And was on my way to the beach and I noticed I wasn’t the only one who needed a moment or longer.

To forget about the ugly and relax in such a beautiful place.

Not enough

Time has gone by for me to truly forget but I’ve forgiven you and now

I’m just trying to live my life without feeling like flashbacks of that day will break me.

I’m stronger than I ever been

I have to repeat that to myself everyday

just to believe it.

Or I fear I will crumpled up in the corner and not ever get back up

I don’t ever want to feel like I’m making the wrong move all the time.

That I attached to quickly and need to pump the brakes and slow down

To not listen to the voice inside of me when it screams danger or to stop listening to the lies.

I wanted to be loved so bad that I almost completely drowned myself and lost what was so pure about myself.

For what a feeling that was so confusing that it was never clear but a long never-ending cloud of smoke.
