Angry

Life is a rough sea at best and it’s going to toss you a wave from time to time. Take a second to breath, be strong and continue to sail into those winds. You will make it, you will make it. Stay determined, stay focused. There is no assurance that it will end up the way you want, but don’t let that break you. Continue, with a greater determination and strength. You will grow. As that old saying goes,

I wanted to share this poem my friend Jon wrote for me. Profound and relevant and totally worth sharing, I thought it was a wonderful gesture. Thank you Jon you, you totally made my day! 😀

“Out among the briny deeps,
beneath which, who knows what sleeps?
whether under sun or star,
the wind is either near or far,
exactly where it needs to be,
guiding us on open sea.
Sometimes patience is required,
to travel where our hearts desired.
Our journeys are the destinations,
even through small hesitations,
when the air just will not gust,
or blows so strong it startles us,
yet persistence is not swayed,
not by stream or lake or glade.
We are the captains of this trek,
and keep all signs of doubt in check.
We’re bold and brave, sure and clever,
that is why we must endeavor,
out beyond each new horizon,
that is what our fortune lies in.
Like men of old in books and tales,
hope is what propels our sails.
We swim with dolphins and sing with whales,
when our love of beauty and freedom prevails.”
(A poem by Jon)

Relationships, Make or Break

Sometimes I find it funny how I consider myself a strong independent woman, yet the outcome of my day can be determined by a single text or lack there of… Yes, I’ve come to be dependent on another person to make me feel happy and yet I know I’m perfectly capable of making myself happy. Contradiction?
My mind is running with so many weird thoughts this morning.

My Saving Grace

The Migraine Chronicles

I need to tell you
I want you to know
on days like today
when I’m feeling low

When my blood boils
when I’m feeling hurt
when I think things
couldn’t be worse

You pull me back
You pull me in
You make me feel
whole again

To say Thank You
is not enough
because the place I am
is not the place I was

Because you stayed with me
through a long hard day
You made me feel better
in each and every way

You put the smile
right back on my face
today you were

My Saving Grace
