Hello.., Again

Hello.., Again

It’s been too long!

I’ve missed this side of myself. I constantly feel the urge to write or post, but always seem to talk myself out of it.

I travel a bit for work, and when I have down time just sitting in the hotel room, writing always crosses my mind.

Then fear takes over.

“what would I even write about?”

“what if someone looks over my shoulder and laughs at me over what i’m writing?”

“what if I don’t get any views? I probably won’t anyways, I should just go to bed for work tomorrow.”

Creating excuses for myself on why I shouldn’t do what I want to do.

Fear has lead in my life for years, and I’ve never noticed it until it came to my blog.

Writing is my release, it’s like my escape from my head and thoughts so when I wasn’t having that release on top of being trapped in a hotel room just to go to work and back to bed to repeat over again the next day, I kind of went insane.

Not literally insane, but I feel an enormous weight on my chest. Anxiety is through the roof so here I am, AGAIN.

Writing, releasing, finding myself again.

I’ve missed this so much and I want to overcome this fear inside of me. I want to live life fully everyday without my overthinking holding me back.

It feels good to be back!

Trapped Inside

Trapped Inside

I feel like a cry

I need a good scream.

The kind you’d hike up a mountain for,

Be careful not to slip.

I crave a release

An escape from the devil inside.

If you dive deep enough, do you think we can drain him out?

The river flows,

Poisoned.. contaminated.

“If you were gone imagine how much better you’d feel”

The water runs black, no end insight.

I can’t ever remember a time when the river ran clear.

Filthy with toxins, hate, and insecurities.

I went for a swim and never made it out.

Drowning.

Suffocating.

Trapped.

Nobody to blame for my own insanity but me.

Locked inside my very own hell.

My head.

How do I get out?

How can I make it stop?

The current is so strong,

I know.. it’s wrong but the river, it’s just to strong!

I’m trapped inside.

The real me.

The one with hopes, and dreams.

She’s drowning.

Trapped by the blackened river.

Nobody can help her,

Only I can help myself.

The journey to the end begins.

Stop being trapped inside!

Affirmations of the Week!

Affirmations of the Week!

Hello

Welcome, to this week’s Affirmations of the Week!

Positive Affirmations Every Monday!

Many of us struggle daily with our inner negative Nancy. Although, I have discovered a way to block out negative thoughts. It helps to write down positive quotes and affirmations that make me feel confident and more at peace.

When I find myself in a mood for the day, I refer back to the positive quotes and affirmations I’ve previously written to help snap out of the negativity. Happiness is a choice you have to choose everyday. I know all too well, how easy it can be to fall into that overthinking cycle of negativity, and how difficult it can be to get out. That’s the reason I make these posts every Monday to help others like me break that cycle.

Positive Quotes & Affirmations

Don’t wish for it work for it.

A beautiful day begins with a beautiful mindset.

It’s a slow process, but quitting won’t speed it up.

Sometimes I feel like giving up, Then I remember I have a lot of motherfuckers to prove wrong.

Be the energy you want to attract

Your body can stand almost anything. It’s mind that you have to convince.

Prove yourself to yourself not others.

Great things never come from comfort zones.

I am stepping into the most successful decade of my life

I love myself enough to push through.

I am creating the life of my dreams.

Work hard in silence. Let success be your noise. -Frank Ocean

I am confident. I am focused. I am UNSTOPPABLE.

I love my body for everything amazing it can do.

I’m successful in everything I do.

I hope you enjoyed! Have a wonderful day!

Glisten

Glisten

Her skin so shiny

like the sun reflecting off the waters

it looked so soft

like silky sheets hanging off.

how come I don’t glisten?

Never mind,

I didn’t mean it…

it’s just sometimes—

I feel so defeated.

Looking at her

then at me

If you had to choose one

it wouldn’t be me.
