Poetry: If you were

Image

If you were in my shoes

an opportunity for leisure

you would crawl

but not fall

your soul would thrive for calm.

~~~

If you were to dream

reality will fade

glued to a wall of unopened thoughts

unleashing the unknown

you would pass your route.

~~~

If you were to feel

let mercy wrap your emotions

find solitude but not loneliness

search for the chants of your desires

close your eyes and grow.

~~~

If you were here

would you smile or cry?

your sense of pride would blind

no dreams, just hope,

that may be enough, but for now,

you cannot see who I am.

~~~

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.

I almost got struck by lightning.

Mother Nature strikes again – pun intended – and I was almost electrocuted by her. Because Ontario winter wasn’t enough to diminish any hopes of emotional attachment towards this province, Mother Nature decided to set a spark close to me and almost set me on fire. Sure, I’m exaggerating, but I did feel a shock and saw a spark coming out of my umbrella. I wasn’t walking with it, I was just standing outside my workplace ready to walk to my ride. Luckily, nothing worse happened. I like watching thunderstorms when I’m inside, but it’s a whole different experience when I’m in the middle of it.

Ah well, I shall not let this get to me. I’ll tell this story to my grandchildren someday, while we sit near the fireplace roasting marshmallows. Nature can still be beautiful, and this IS a lovely province. It’s just Mother Nature has some grudge against it. What have you done before I moved here, Ontario? Here’s a picture of how great nature can be:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Spring

Another Friday, another Photo Challenge. The theme for this week is ‘Spring’. I love it! Sadly, Ontario isn’t being a great host for Spring so far, but it’s getting there. The temperatures are definitely higher, but I would like to see a bit more sunshine. Here are a few pictures about Spring. Enjoy!

Hello everyone! I know it is Monday and your hair is probably turning grey from the despair,  looks like tangled spider webs from whatever you did on the weekend, and you probably dozed on and off during the day…

Hi everyone!!!! Hope you’re doing great :D. It’s the weekend!! )— ^_^ —(  << that’s me doing a…dance?

I remember when I was a child, and weekends meant Saturday morning cartoons and playing hide-and-seek with the neighbourhood kids. You know, those days when it was safe for a kid to go –and stay–outside. Thankfully, nowadays I can still watch cartoons or movies (thank you Netflix) on Saturday mornings :D.

Here are some photos of one of my favourite spots, the lake! I love it. It is so peaceful and relaxing. It’s also a safe place, because if someone were to jump behind me and try to attack me, I could throw them into the lake ;). 

Have an awesome weekend everyone! 😀

Countless Power – A to Z Challenge

Today’s A to Z challenge letter is ‘C’

 

DSC08572 copy

Countless Power

“Cannot” is a word we frequently use, sometimes when we shouldn’t. There are times we fail to see our “Countless power,” and I’m not talking about magical powers or a variety of sorcery. I’m talking about the ability to see our capabilities as human beings and as ourselves; it is a tool that we can use to heal the rough patches we must face. Realistically speaking, we will be led through unwanted roads, where we will need to rely on our inner power to escape. As it pertains to all of us, there is no way to predict such circumstances; however, why are we so fearful and non-confident?

We mustn’t be, we are warriors fighting for our happiness, and everyday we write our own melodies and stroll through our self-made routes. It’s time we  believed in ourselves, not because life is too short, but because we were born to be confident in your own skin and personality. It is not our fault for the anxiety inflicted in you by evildoers, but it is our duty to ensure we seek our freedom. We have countless reasons to move forward, and countless “gadgets” inside of us. For example, the gift of laughter; there is always something that makes us laugh, and it is true that laughter is the best medicine. Self-doubt only ignites unworthy and unloving feelings, and we must remember that just by fact we want to do good in this world, is enough reason to believe that we are good.

Struggles is what makes us stronger, and we cannot avoid it.You shouldn’t use the word ‘cannot’ so often, but you should still use it. Why? Because you learn from it, and it gives you a chance to explore new adventures, only as long as you’re not hurting yourself and others. Say, “I cannot” and add “but I will try”. You never know what doors will open, unless you take one step forward and try. You can live to laugh, and love to live, the roads can be everlasting.

❤ ❤ ❤ Love, Ellie ❤ ❤ ❤

Hello!!! Hope it’s been a good Wednesday. I had a good day. I went to the gym and did a class called “Sh’Bam,” which is a fitness cardio dance class, I love it! We get to dance to 80’s and 90’s music (which is what I mostly listen to). I also tried a quinoa salad that had a hint of lime and honey, absolutely delicious!

I usually post random photos of the day, but today I’ll just share these photos of more of my adventures. One day, I hope to tour Europe, New Zealand and Australia! I can’t even imagine how many photos I’d take if given the chance. In the meantime, there are lots of places to explore in this province! Here’s hoping I don’t run into Ringwraiths (Lord of the Rings reference) during my hikes.

Random Photo(s) of the Day #12…with a Story Starter…and Ellie’s daily update

Hi everyone! I hope the new week has been treating you well! IF NOT, let me know and I’ll call upon my army of penguins.

I added a little something extra to the title, because my random photo post has turned into updates, as well. It’s okay, though. It spices things up over here :D.

I woke up thinking it was Monday, but I guess my brain played an April Fools’ joke on me :p. Today was a good day, I went for a long walk (it’s finally sunny in Ontario!), and wrote my first post for the A to Z Challenge. I have a huge craving for cinnamon rolls, so I’ll probably have an unhealthy breakfast tomorrow. I’m learning French using the app called ‘Duolingo’. I know the basics, and I started using the app about 3 months ago, but I’ve been neglecting it. I have a French background so it’s only fitting that I learn the language. I already speak Spanish, so that’s out of the way (also have a Spanish background). Here’s hoping one day I’ll translate some of my work in French!

Today’s photos are of the most wonderful thing, okay ONE of the most wonderful things, in my life…drum roll please…FLOWERS. I love flowers, preferably colourful ones, but I’m not picky. I also love it when bees do not fly around them. I use flowers to let people know I care, to show my love, gratitude, or as a random gesture. I really do not need an excuse to give out flowers; I even give myself flowers (as sad as that may seem). Enjoy these photos and hope you have an awesome Tuesday and/or Wednesday (depending where you live). Ta ta for now!
