Quote of the Week:You Don’t Have To Be Friends With Everybody

Standard

“We live in an age where we feel guilt whenever we have to cut someone off but the reality is that some relationships do need to die, some people do need to be unfollowed and defriended. We aren’t meant to be this tethered to the people in our past.

The Internet mandates that we don’t burn bridges and keep everyone around like relics but those expectations are unrealistic and unhealthy. Simply put, we don’t need to know what everyone else is up to. We’re allowed to be choosy about who we surround ourselves with online and in real life, even if it might hurt people’s feelings.” by Ryan O’Connell

Sometimes (Visiting the Past)

Standard

Sometimes just sometimes there is something
That keeps us from moving forward
It’s like a chapter in a book
You want to go on but
There’s something that needs read again
Sometimes in life there’s something past
That can’t be carried to the future
And yet it has such bearing
It must be taken care of
So while the shoes point forward
I must go visit the past

Closed Doors

Standard

We close the door to the past and put the key in a safe place. Every so often we find ourselves revisiting the steps of that broken, rusty, dusty door hoping to find what use to be on the other side. What was once always there is now gone but hope is not lost. What we don’t realize is that what use to be our world will soon be replaced by a greater version then what we had. Replaced with something we can’t even start to dream of. The odd thing about all this is once we have it in our lives we can’t see ourselves without it even though we once never had it at all. A wise man once said; “Every new beginning comes from some other beginnings end”.

 

Dear Ex

Standard

Dear Ex,

You were my heroin, but I recovered and I intend to stay clean. I’ve changed so much, I came such a long way that I can’t imagine going back. And like a recovering addict I will miss you, but I will never want you.

I woke up today and realized my heart didn’t flutter when I saw your picture. You’ve become that guy from Gotye song that was all over the radio a couple years ago

Thanks for the toxic love and wasted time

Sincerely,

The girl who no longer cares

Pain

Standard

People don’t want to experience any hurt after a hardship. When really that’s all part of the process. You have to feel hurt and heal in order to become the new you that you want to be! You’re like a wound after you’ve experienced something traumatizing. You have to hurt, you have to clean it, and keep up with it daily. You have to scab over and then you heal. You’ll always have a scar to remind you of what you’ve been through, but that’s a part of what make you: You.pain

Reinventing Me

Standard

Something snapped,
Something broke,
A long and arduous journey,

Step by Step
Moment by moment
Feelings of numbness
Persistence forgotten

Courage insistent despite death’s lure
Courage to continue
Courage to try
Courage to be present
Courage to be

despite numbness
despite emptiness
despite

stewing and sitting, sleeping and purging, searching and trying,

Broken open
trying not to harden

left with nothing more

And a seed remained
a seed that remembered courage
a seed stating to go on
a seed needing care and love

and even though it snapped
and even though it broke

something said “it’s time”
time to reinvent

to start a new beginning
to start a new me
to start a new everything

move toward a vision
despite the emptiness in me
trust in me
trust I can believe
trust I deserve to be a new me.

So without feeling,
without a stir,
I release all expectations and start this journey to be me.

Hoping to feel again,
Hoping to draw on persistence and tenacity
knowing they served in the past,
knowing they risk
loss and pain.

Release the fear
Try a new
Trust in the ability to create
despite the cycle of life.
despite the truth

Live to feel all it’s adventure, good and bad.
Time to create a new and stronger me.
In celebration of life
In Celebration of Truth.
In Celebration of My love.
In Celebration of loving ME
I’m setting myself free
Watch out, here I come.
