Writing

I write to sort out my thoughts and figure things out

What do others do who don’t write?

I write to relax and recuperate

What do others do who don’t write?

I write to express myself

What do others do who don’t write?

I write to go to a placeless place and explore

What do others do who don’t write?

I write to breathe out, to exhale

What do others do who don’t write?

I write to bring joy into my life

What do others do who don’t write?

I write to go to my place of calm

What do others do who don’t write?

Solitude

Relaxing and enjoying my solitude

It’s been a while since I could say that 

Now, silence is not filled with anxiety

Now, I can roam freely in the atmosphere of my thoughts

Now, writing takes me to my place of calm

Calm

Calm like the stillness of the lake

Calm like the quiet of the night

Calm like green grass of the meadow

Calm like the early morning breeze

Calm like the serenity prayer

Calm like a baby sleeping 

Calm like the murmur of water

Calm like a soul at peace

Me time

image

What do I do when I want to relax?
What do I do to get away from it all?
What do I do for me time?
The answer is simple: I write

Sometimes what I write is interesting
Other times, not so much
The purpose is not always
Creating a work of art
It’s emptying my cup

There is a calm that comes over me
When I write
I can’t explain it
Don’t know why
But that writing is one of my favourite things
There is no doubt
Give me a pen and paper
And a writing spot
Preferably in a coffee shop
And I’ll be happy and satisfied

Why expressing myself
Brings me joy, I don’t know
Why do I have this need to write
I don’t know
All I know is that writing gives me life
Refreshes my soul and cheers my heart

Storm

IMG_4311

There are times in our lives
That the intensity of our emotions
Overwhelms us
We feel deeply
We yearn passionately
We hurt intensely
We miss others badly

These powerful emotions
Sometimes bring us to our knees
We want to get out of the whirlwind
But we can’t
We feel the same feeling over and over
Until it hurts

And at the same time
These are times that we feel most alive

The waves created by our emotions
Keep crashing against the cliff of our spirit
But in the end
Our spirit makes it through
It survives another storm
And arrives at a place of calm

Storm

IMG_4311Healing the wounds of the past
And making sense of trying episodes in my life
Needs reflection
I need to sort out my feelings
I need to express them

Sometimes I grapple with the same thoughts over and over
Sometimes I repeat the scenes in my head

But eventually I get to a place of calm
Where I can let go of the negative feelings
Understand that this episode
Was a chance for me to test my metal
To learn new things
To better understand reality

Yes, it was frustrating
Yes, it reeked havoc in my life and
My patience was tested again
But I weathered the storm
And emerged from the other side
With new insights

Pinch me

There are times in my life
When the ocean is calm
The storm has come and gone
And I’ve survived

When the weather is mild
And the sun shines
When all is well with the world
And there are no big worries on my mind

At these times I feel as thankful
As can be
I feel blessed
And sometimes I almost feel guilty
For the way I feel

I know another storm will come
I know the clouds will appear again
And the rain drops will pelt my head
I know the light at the end of the tunnel
Will grow dim
I know all this

But for now
I’ll enjoy the calm and the sunshine and
Do my best to help others who may feel down
I’ll be a good friend, mother and wife

That’s what I can do to
Show my thankfulness
As I sail on the ocean of life
