Some tea and sun for the soul 


The night when you have cried yourself to sleep

and you wake up tired with a heavy heart
make yourself some tea
Open that window
Allow the sun to lend you some of its warmth
sit there and take some comfort in the way those rays hug your body
give nature a chance to you show its affection.

One day at a time 

When a weekend doesn’t feel like a weekend,

When things don’t go the way anticipated, 

When that least expected something happens and leaves you disappointed, 

Yet again. 

Take the time to stare out that window. 

The sun is setting

The day is ending 

Your mind and body, exhausted, wanting to give up. 

Take the time to remind yourself to stay in that moment. 

Breathe. 

Watch the sunset. 

Welcome the dusk. 

Let nature help you heal. 

Tell yourself “one day at a time”.

Breathe. 

And know that you deserve moments of calm in those chaotic times. 

I believe you

When you say you miss me

I also believe

All the silence

that you throw my way

It doesn’t make any noise

But hits hard enough

To leave a bruise for days

I believe you

When you say you’ve been hurt

I also believe

In that ache I feel

When you refuse

To acknowledge my hurting

I believe it all

The said

The unsaid

I just don’t know

If I believe

in myself anymore

To have the strength

To believe in us.

But there never was or is an us 

For a second there

For a second there

I forgot about the chaos outside

And about the raging storm inside

 

For a second there

I forgot about the fact that

My feelings should be caged

Because I am in a public place

 

For a second there

I totally forgot about

The responsibility of having

To study for a test tomorrow

 

For those few seconds

It was just me with my journal

And the music playing in my ears

 

A private conversation between us

Unknown to those around

It was the comfort of an unnerving solitude

 

For those few seconds

I refused to see the situation

As either black or white

 

During a storm

Grey is how the sky appears

But for a second there

I embraced it

And I swear

Nothing felt more beautiful.

Days when

IMG_4157You are not always going to be all rainbows and sunshine

there are going to be days when you are going to be a raging storm

no matter how many parties you go to and no matter how many friends you have

there are going to be those days when you will find yourself not having anyone by your side

days when you feel disconnected with your own self

days when even social media won’t be able to distract you

days when no matter how many times you try to find a shelter

the storm will break through all of that

because it so overwhelmingly

demands your attention

So let it rage, my dear, do not suppress it, not again

let it take over and create something out of it,

write, paint, sing, dance, run

let it go and create something

so beautifully broken out of it

for only a few can see the beauty in the storm

and you,dear one, are one of those.
