Weekly Photo Challenge: Work of Art

It’s Friday (technically Saturday where I live) and it’s time for another Photo Challenge. Art is everywhere and if you use your imagination, you can discover different worlds. Here’s my take on Work of Art! Enjoy and have an amazing weekend!!! :D. Remember to spread the love ❤

This is inside a church. I love this mural!

Nature is art, and it provides inspiration to your imagination. This place made me feel like anything could happen. You know, like me finding the ring of power and defeating Sauron.

Poem – Let go

Image

If I absorb your energy

will I suffer or will I triumph?

open up and face it 

you know what to say.

~~~

In doubt, in tears, 

where have you been?

as our roots stay in ground

our growth is ceasing.

~~~

I walk in the midst of stars

adhering to upcoming dreams

unhitching to loud voices

freeing into my happiness.

~~~

I’m attentive

Have you sung forgiving lyrics?

you released my hand

Was I ready?

Find me again…

 

 

 

Wisdom – A to Z challenge

A to Z challenge letter: W

Wisdom

Have you gotten your wisdom teeth removed? Not me, yet, but I’m going to have to in the next couple of years. But, that is not the wisdom I’m referring to – ha! Bet, you didn’t think I was going to have a deep moment for a second – The beauty of Wisdom is that everyone has a different positive input, but we all possess the ability to share it, only if we are confident. The thing is, sometimes we need to hear things we already know, but through someone else’s mouth, because during tough times, we might enclose ourselves in a cage of stubbornness and reject the truth that could save us. We know what’s good and bad for us, it is in our instinct, but we must surround ourselves with people of good influence, so that they may help us when our Wisdom is clouded.

Regret – A to Z challenge

A to Z Challenge letter: R

Regret

Live without regrets, that sounds simple, right? Well, it isn’t and it will never be. I do not regret events in my life as much anymore, because there is no point on dwelling in the past. However, there is one thing I would’ve loved to do more – talk to my grandma more. Whenever I mention this, my family and friends think I’m being too hard on myself. I talked to my grandma, a lot, but I feel I should’ve asked her more questions and found out more about her history. Of course, after she passed away I clung onto my grandpa and drained all the stories I could out of him. He was happy sharing how he met my grandma and what they did together. They met when they were teenagers and stayed together until she passed away at age 79, in 2007. It’s amazing how much detail my grandpa remembered, but it goes to show you that love does amazing things. Because I did live in regret after her passing, I tried to make up for what I could not do with her, by reaching to my grandpa. I do wish I could’ve heard his stories through her voice, though. I understand now that even though I wish I could’ve done more, she did leave a great legacy and I got to listen to it through my grandpa’s voice. Their love helped me believe in love again.

If you live in regret, try not to, it does hurt your mind and soul. Instead, learn from past mistakes and focus on the positive that came out of them. After my grandpa passed away last year, I did not regret anything. I spoke to him as often as I could during his last year, and hearing me gave him peace and he let me know that. I have to tell you, there were times when I asked my mum a hundred times if he really was sick, because whenever he talked to me he would sound like he did in his younger years. She told me he was excited to hear and see me and my voice made his pain disappear.

Our last goodbye:

Me: Love you, gramps!

Grandpa: Love you, too! Peace and Love!

Happy Easter lovely bloggers!

I’d like to extent a big hug to my lovely bloggers and wish them a Happy Easter! I’m Catholic, so today I thank God for my strength. Even if you are not religious or spiritual —after all, you don’t have to be one to be grateful— you should always take a moment and think of all the good that has happened in your life, and be thankful for that :). Say thank you to your family, your friends, or think of the stranger that once helped you out. Remember, there is still good in this world. Embrace it, share the love, and respect others!

Enjoy the chocolates and the rest of your day 🙂

Obscure Mentality – A to Z Challenge

A to Z challenge letter: O

Obscure Mentality

We’re all guilty of having an obscure mentality at some point in our lives. Many times we don’t feel worthy of receiving well-deserved awards, and it is thanks to that lack-of-confidence demon that lurks when it shouldn’t. We must believe that it is perfectly fine to be rewarded for our hard work – hence the word itself – we work hard and therefore, we earn our own rewards. We make (I hope) an honest living and others notice when we’re genuine, and even though there are others who may look like they’re not happy for us, they really are. Do not be disappointed, but be proud and grateful for the good opportunities you receive.

We’re also guilty of having an obscure mentality towards our bodies and souls. We’re all unique and imagine what the world would be like if we all looked the same. Boring, right? You’re beautiful, and while not everyone will be attracted to you, that does not mean you’re ugly. To be honest, I would not like it if every guy out there fell for me, but that’s just me. In my opinion, the right person will initially be drawn to you by the way you look – and that doesn’t mean that only happens when you are wearing something special or ten pounds of make up – but because this person was destined to fall for you at any time. Remember, the right person will be impressed by the way you look, but will fall in love with you for your soul. Do not force anything to happen, nor chase the ones you like, because that may divert you from your true destiny.

Daily Prompt: You confident thing

The daily post asks: You sexy thing: Tell us about your best confidence outfit. Don’t leave out the shoes or the perfect accessories.

 

When I read the question, I giggled like a kid. It just caught me off-guard. Usually the daily post will have a different word usage.

For many years, I wished I had the confidence I had when I was little. But, not anymore! My outfits do not contribute to my confidence. I honestly can feel ‘sexy’ or ‘hot’ or whatever you want to call it, wearing sweats and a bunnyhug (I have friends from Saskatchewan). One could have the sexiest outfit in the entire universe – providing aliens wear clothes – and still have low self-esteem. I feel good in anything; dresses, heels, flats, sweaters, jackets, raincoats, etcetera.  There should not be just the one outfit that makes you feel good, because there isn’t one for every moment in your life. Keep it that way, do not let clothing define your confidence, but shine through it and make others see your soul before the outfit.

This is me throwing a performance for my grandparents when I was a kid.

Poetry: Heal

6640_119281658479_5164385_n

Delicacy of sweet lips

adorn my soul in glistening notes

beyond conundrum

on a path of petals

and windy salute

~~~

In the woods where branches meet

she carves her loss

with a punctured heart

and liberating sorrows 

she must try

~~~

Numb from all feelings

a beaming sun ray caresses her doubts

in conjunction with revelations

she faces the opposite

she finds a new horizon

~~~

Aboard her destiny she sets forth

glancing upon tomorrow

abandoning the sorrows

and dancing to no limits

she heals

 

 

Random Photo of the Day #14…with a Story Starter…and an Ellie update

Hello everyone! How’s it going? I don’t have a lot to update on, other than I went back to work this week. It’s been awesome so far, but I am exhausted! Tomorrow (Sunday, you know it might be Monday where you are right now) I shall just relax and do nothing…okay, I’ll clean my room and things like that. That’s all I have to say. I’m just happy I get to live another day :).

Today’s photo of the day reminds me of the beauty of this planet and how cheerful nature can be. Look at all those colours! I just love to stare at this photo — you know, in a non-creepy way — and it always inspires me whenever I look at it. Enjoy and don’t forget to unroll the love! 😀

Story Starter: I love…
