Just another day

 Of wising it was hot instead of cold outside right now.

Yes I have enjoy the hot drinks and the hot food and just enjoying the sweat pants but it’s time for less layers.

The urge to be inside all the time and now worry about what everyone is saying about staying in.

You know you can be out with a smile on your face and enjoy the air around you.

For you don’t have to be so wrapped up some my not know where all the layers of you end at the end of the day.

I always

was afraid to take the leap in life that would get me to the other side

because I  was afraid I would fall and get hurt in the process.

But being here today and taking the leap near this beautiful waterfall has made me not be afraid anymore.

Because sometimes it is better and more at peace on the other side as along as I stay true to myself.

These leaps will happen more often and I won’t be afraid to take  them and deal with the outcome later on.

To feel

the sun on my face after such a cold morning.

I just want to forget about today and hope for a better tomorrow

for I know things will be tough and the week will be long and at the end I will want to not come back again.

Things are going so well for me and right now I just hope and wish it will all work out in the end for I am tired of losing sleep over something that is not going to define me at the  end of my day or week.

Something   that has already changed me but not in the way I wanted it too.

At this point only the truth will set me free and today just doesn’t seem like the day where everything will be clear for me .

You happy when you set me free from this life you said had so much more to offer me these days.

Did you ever think about how I really would feel about you leaving me that day and how long it took me to get to this place of peace I’m living in now.

I reach up to the sky and I feel so blessed to feel the light shining down on me this day.

I know that who I am today is because of me and that day you walked away from me, made me realize how much I was leaning on you and not standing on my own two feet.

I need to be balance of myself before I could ever really lean on someone else and now I’m more happy than I could like possible.

I’m riding the wave of a lifetime, I’m so peaceful and happy right now as I focus on making sure I make it out of this tunnel. 

I never thought I’d make it this far and my talent be more than a hobby to me and to have all the people I love watching me and supporting me too. 

The sun shines down on me and I feel free for the first time im my life and that’s why I love being out in the water for I feel like nothing but, doing what I love in this moment matters to me.

Daily Prompt: Breath

I want to say I took a deep breath that day

and really stopped and thought about what I

was going to say.

But I didn’t and so I’m now faced with

a face of anger that is so bright like the sun

that I’m blinded by the words.

I shouldn’t have said in the first place

I wonder if I apology and take the breath

I should have earlier, maybe things can be

fixed.
