FELL; WHAT NEXT??

We all have embarrassing moments that we always hide in the closet so that no one can see. I remember one time I was late for class and I was running down the staircase. I don’t remember what exactly happened but I guess I missed a step and boom! It was a mixture of a skid, a thud , a scream and everything else that comes with all that. The position that I landed on was even worse. It was so funny that I ended up looking like I was tying my shoes and not falling.

I remember looking up just to confirm that no one had actually seen me. I wanted to get up so fast and actually pretend I was tying my shoes. I was so embarrassed.

Typically, that’s how most human beings are. When we fall, we never want to be seen in our falls.We don’t want to display our broken pieces in the open. We want to show that perfect lifestyle, but for what!! I feel like it’s time we realize that it’s okay to fall and hiding from the outcome of the fall never solves anything. You may receive criticism when you fall, whether positive or negative. Others are just going to stare and do nothing. Essentially, the outcome of what people say may build you or break you. All in all you will learn a lesson.Being overly-protective is sometimes overly-dangerous. You may be locking out potential advice. You may get negative critics but from that you learn too.

Only God is perfect. We are humans, flesh and blood so we, in one way or another will fall. It’s okay to be seen in the fall. Embrace the moment, dust yourself and move forward.

YOUR DEPRESSION DOESN’T DEFINE YOU

Hello loves,

Just so you know, your depression doesn’t define you.

It might feel like it does. Sometimes it might even feel like it consumes you completely, and I understand that. Because sometimes back, my depression did the same thing to me. It swallowed me whole and drowned me in self-doubt. Then, it strangled me with poisonous thoughts and convinced me I’m unworthy of love, and sometimes even life. But I’m not unworthy, and neither are you.

Depression is just pure evil that convinces you everything is wrong, including yourself. It gets inside your body, and your mind, and your soul, and it cuts you down to your very core. Depression is lonely because it’s only understandable to the people who have fought through it themselves. It’s an unexplainable nightmare you keep waking up from, but you never actually get out of.

It’s inescapable and when the people around you urge you to bring yourself out of it, you only fall in deeper.

It steals your drive of passion and takes away your will to love. It leaves you stranded all alone, feeling like a mess whose only contribution to the world is their sadness. It swallows you, and it consumes you, and then it makes you believe all you are is your depression. But you’re not. You are more, and you always have been.

You are a human being. A human who has made someone smile, and someone laugh, and someone feel. You’ve impacted people with your own smile, and your own laugh, and your own feelings. You have beliefs and passions and a journey to a destination you are destined to reach. You have your own path in life that is only meant for you and your mind to conquer. 

You’re a human who has made a difference in the world, whether you realize it or not.

You’re a friend who is needed, and a family member who is loved deeply. You’re a person who can understand something as devastating as depression and help other people who struggle with it by simply letting them know they are not alone.

You are powerful, and compassionate. You are caring, beautiful, and one of a kind. There is only one person on this planet who has everything you’ve got, and that’s you. And that makes you important, and needed, and rare.

You are an incredibly strong human being, and never try to say that you aren’t. I know you are, because you’ve felt the type of lowness that has left people utterly broken, and yet you’re still here.

You’re here, and you’re still fighting. You are not your depression. You are a warrior who fights a daily battle within yourself and survives it every single day.

You are a survivor. A human who has felt pure emptiness and lived through it. And most of all, you are someone who deserves love and the life you live, because what defines you could never be minimized to a single word, unless that word is more.

Wherever you are in the world, you’re loved. You’re God’s masterpiece 💕💕

OCEAN REVERIE

Vast and overwhelming

You take my breath away

I wonder at your majesty

In your realm I yearn to stay

A heartbeat ceaseless rhythm

You dance in constant sway

Waves crush upon unending shore

Then retreat yonder ,far away

Did you know I love your smell and sound?

As waves splash upon my naked feet

See me sink into your white fine sands

Battling tides-that’s no mean feat!

There is no greater feeling

Than floating in your midst

Riding boisterous waves of fury

With sense of pure ,great bliss

Your mirror life’s great mysteries

Your wonders never cease

One moment calm and tempered

Then,fierce-raging like a beast

Your waters are galaxy,

Such creatures live within

Flora flourish in your realistic

Fauna thrive midst watery din

Perhaps I was born to be a sailor

To ride your waves each day!

Oh! Such it seems was not be be

It’s a lifetime ,held at bay

Yet,would that I could settle

Somewhere close,upon your shore.

And there I yearn to live my life,

Until it be no more

And so final farewell,

My simple reverie

Is of ashes shorn into your well…

That is enough for me

And you simply carry on

Ceaseless rhythm,constant sway,

Lord, thank you for such majesty,

May we protect land and ocean,I pray.
