What if the stars could speak?

Staring up at the beautiful midnight sky,

Lit up by the hundreds of shining stars,

A question continually crosses my mind…

What if the stars could speak?

 

Those lonely nights spent stuck within our own head would’ve been spent talking with those up overhead.

If the stars could speak,

They would whisper down and make sure it was clear,

“We will be there every step of the way shining in the midst of your darkness”

All the secrets, tears and laughter would be shared and they would reassure us,

“It was going to be okay”

They would listen and make sure they…

Shined brighter when darkness was creeping up closer,

And dimmed when it was returning to the shadows.

 

If the stars could speak..

They’d be our new trusted friend,

All the screaming thoughts that were trapped would’ve been said out loud to them while they heard from above,

They would advise us from a different perspective as they can see what we cannot,

If stars could speak,

We’d be awake every night speaking rather than crying in our sleep.

 

You see,

Although stars cannot speak,

They were there for us in the darkness,

They gave us light when we were stuck in the night,

Without them we would still be lost and afraid,

But they were there when no one else was.

 

Thank you stars,

We didn’t even have to wish,

For you to come to our help. ☺️

You’re my inspiration…

Days have passed and no words have been written,

Sitting with an empty page opened,

Thinking, reading and looking out for any inspiration,

But still no sentences or posts have been developed.

There was a time when the flow of words were Unstoppable,

It took hours to compress the ramble into a decent meaningful post,

But it feels like the words have run out,

Or maybe the words aren’t fitting together to make any sense.

So the power is getting passed onto you,

Anyone who stumbles upon this, comment or leave a message of anything you’d like to read about,

Whether you want advice, a different perspective or just another opinion,

A topic, experience, sentence or simply a word, Anything.

You’re my inspiration.

 

Can’t wait to see what you come up with. 🙂

 

Rock-Climbing…

Calm,

Carefree and in peace,

Determined to keep going,

My legs aching and my fingers slowly slipping off the curved hold,

I couldn’t hold myself up much longer.

I slipped and slammed my side,

Once I reached the bottom,

I chalked up my hands and was already gripping and going at it again,

It sometimes only needed one go and others needed multiple hits and falls until I finally reached the top,

I realised as I stepped up to the wall after my first failed attempt,

That in order to succeed,

We’ve got to let go of the belief of not being good enough and not being able to do it,

We got to be willing to fail once or more,

Then acknowledge the achievement that has been made,

Even if you only got one step further be proud of how far you’ve come and,

Never give up.

Stay Strong and hold on. Xx

Cup of coffee #3 …

If we were having a cup of coffee right now, I’d look at you and try to read the emotions in your eyes. Even if you tell me you’re great, I’d check just to make sure your feelings aren’t being masked behind a smile.

If we were having a cup of coffee right now, and you were happy both inside and out I’d congratulate you on getting yourself this far. I’m proud of your progress and would sit and listen to you rant about all that you’ve achieved and faced.

If we were having a cup of coffee right now, and you were feeling down both inside and out I’d congratulate you on being able to accept all the emotions you experience. I’d then sit and listen to whatever is going on in your life and help you see the greatness that you’ve had trouble to recognise.

If we were having a cup of coffee right now, and you were smiling but had broken glass eyes I’d come closer and tell you that it’s going to be alright. Don’t be ashamed or scared to truly express your feelings. Live and embrace both your ups and downs, and remember it’s not you being weak but in all reality stronger than you’ve ever been. Sure it feels like you’re living in a Nightmare one which would startle you awake at night, but remember after every hardship is an ease. It might be Unpredictable but stay strong and be ready to fully embrace and enjoy the end of this dream.

If we were having a cup of coffee right now, I’d tell you stay in touch and I can’t wait to see you next time.

Don’t just smile…

Sometimes during your Journey, you have to stop and realise what’s going on around you. Once you give yourself the chance to, you start to recognise the slightest details.

It’s funny how much the eye can tell. No matter how much someone has perfected their smile, if you look closely you can see the pain embedded in their eyes. All it takes is for you to ask them “Are you okay?” and you see their eyes shatter, lips start to tremble and they’ll bite their tongue and smile saying “Yes, Ofcourse.”

You see when that person means the world to you, your pain gets forgotten and new wounds are created. Ones that cause actual physical heart pain. It’s indescribable. And you know that this is a fraction of the pain that their experiencing.

I just want everyone to smile. Not just smile, but actually have their eyes light up with such great and true happiness. I don’t want to see anymore shattered glass eyes masked by the perfected smile. I want to see genuine smiles light up all around.

Don’t forget after every big storm a beautiful rainbow shines.

Be strong and find your real smile. Xx

Capture the beauty…

I was one that always lived within my head.

Never had the chance to truly appreciate everything around me.

I’ve recently started realising I’ve been set free from my thoughts.

I’m free and experiencing everything to its fullest.

Even those car rides in traffic that I used to dread have become enjoyable.

I now take the chance to admire my surroundings.

Beauty is embedded everywhere.

Sometimes the simplest thing like a tree can be so mesmerising.

So every now and then look around and capture the simple but surprisingly beautiful moments.

Don’t let your Cowardice of making a mistake or looking like a fool ruin your chance of experiencing something new.

Make every moment a time to smile. Xx

 

Mirage- Real or an Illusion?

How can someone trust others when the instant trust for oneself is lost? It’s almost impossible, and so as a result you become a mystery, not only to those around you but also to yourself.

Ofcourse then naturally there becomes a lack of confidence, self-esteem and an extremely high level of self-consciousness. A simple trip to buy groceries or maybe even leaving your room becomes a heated and intense self debate. You even begin trying your best to avoid making eye contact with The Familiar Stranger.

You see no matter how difficult it is, you need to have trust in yourself. You can’t be afraid. So what if you make a mistake, or two, or even three? The best part about being human is making those many mistakes then learning from them in order to become better a person.

You don’t want to be the person that’s thirsty but too scared to check if the mirage in the Desert is real or just an illusion. You may be missing out on something incredible.

Have some faith and trust you’ll make the right decisions. Follow your instincts and be ready to face any challenges that come your way.

Smile and stay strong. Xx
