Be Carefree

Every path we take,
every mistake we encounter,
every success we experience,
adds richness
to our inner voice
So go out into the world,

let go of yourself
and
be vibrant,
feel invincible,
spread love,
it will give meaning
to our words,
it will inspire,
it will connect
,
most of all,
it will make us become
a better writer


A Writer’s Potential

As a writer,
you have the potential
to be great
Your individuality
is an untapped source of
power
Your soul displays
endless creativity,
inner beauty,
and
fragility
Your words
make an impact
on the reader’s
emotions,
which help to spark
love,
joy,
hope
and
inspiration

My Happy Place

When I write,
I’m in my happy place
A place where I’m returning to
the most purest spot in my soul
Everyday I always return
to the place where the best things are
I may not be the most
talented, creative or eloquent writer
but my passion
to get my words out onto paper
just makes
my love for this craft
stronger
Writing elevates
my mind, body and soul
It takes me to another level
of complete joy
I’m able to go to a place
where I create things
not only with my words
but with
my heart,
my soul,
my true inner voice.

Being Genuine

Being kind and caring
is a gentle art
Display your inner self,
share love from your heart
Showing compassion
is a tremendous virtue
Be there for those in need,
valuable words bring clear view
Giving of yourself
brings out all that you are
Spread love and respect,
in life you’ll go far.

Mid-Life Reflections #7

A1

We live in a hustle and bustle world where every minute of our lives is bombarded by things left and right.  There are times when chaos ensues and others that leave us completely dumbfounded.  Usually at the end of the day, we are completely exhausted both physically and mentally and end up sleeping it off only to continue with the hubbub the next day.

I’ve learned that too much exposure to all this commotion can sometimes cause us to  freak out and wonder “What the hell?!”

“Is this how it’ll be for the rest of my life?”

“Will it ever end?”

“What is my purpose in the scheme of it all?”

“Things have to get better right?”

All these questions must’ve popped into our minds at one point in time.  We’re either just starting to experience this, in the process of it or finally getting over it.  Whichever one we’re in, just know that in spite of everything, we need to stop and catch our breath.

Look around and take delight in your children, your pets, your siblings, your parents, your grandparents, your friends; just watch them and know that you are what you are because of them.

Watch the sunrise or the sunset; by doing this know that you are lucky enough to live another day.

If your life is not to your liking, change it.  It’s as simple as that.  Have a job that sucks, quit.  In a relationship that’s horrendous, end it.  Want to try something new, be fealess and go for it.  That cliche “Life is too short” is really true.

You got to where you are because you endured a lot and overcame obstacles that seemed insurmountable.  You can go much further and better yourself and situation if you just have faith in yourself.  Life is precious…so dare to be bold and custom life to your liking!

Writing is a gift

That’s given to few, so share

Let your voice be heard

 

Creating stories

Inspiring today’s children

To always dream big

 

Writing sets us free

Imagination unchained

Unknown worlds are born

 

Writing shows our heart

Passion reveals our true self

Our love knows no bounds

 

Words are our allies

Strings together emotions

Stirs up memories
