Patience…

A lot can be said about this single word, but I don’t want you to lose your patience going through an endless ramble of useless words. So, I decided to share a short quote I came across that I think sums it up perfectly.

Patience is not the ability to wait, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting.

Joyce Meyer

And here’s a few extra that I just could not leave out…

No road is too long for him who advances slowly and does not hurry, and no attainment is beyond his reach who equips himself with patience to achieve it.

Jean de la Bruyere

Patience is the ability to count down before you blast off.

anonymous

All men commend patience, although few are willing to practice it.

Thomas a Kempis

These words echo…

Demeaning words,

“You aren’t good enough!”

 

Criticising laughs,

“You’re a fool for thinking you could be tough!”

 

Piercing smirks,

“You’re going to slip and fall and never be able to get back up!”

 

So much noise,

You wish it would just all stop.

 

If only you had a remote with buttons to lower the volume,

Or better still mute everything up.

 

You could walk away to be in a more silent place,

Far from all these things being said.

 

However, these words echo,

Even in an empty room.

 

Have you forgotten?

 

You welcomed them in,

And here they will remain,

Embedded in your head,

Until you yourself find the courage,

And discard of them for good.

 

Only then will you see change,

And surely you’ll find your true happiness again.

The words from within…

I am not a writer,

Just a person that simply groups together streams of words floating around within my head,

Sometimes these words don’t have any purposeful focus or aim,

And sometimes they are just rambles on a page.

 

But without freeing the words in my head,

A lump forms in my throat and a heavy feeling forms in my chest,

I don’t even intend to utter the words from within,

Because even I don’t know what they are,

Not even what they mean.

 

I know it may be difficult to grasp and understand,

But I’m sorry I can’t explain any further,

Until I, myself, can figure this all out.

Think of a strategy…

Sometimes you find yourself stuck,

Sometimes all you see is a dead end,

And sometimes you may see nothing at all,

Just pure, dark emptiness.

 

However, never give up,

Get focused,

Think of a strategy,

Stick to it,

And surely you will succeed.

 

Remember,

“Even when you feel you’ve tried everything and exhausted yourself, THAT is the point at which you have to push through.”

Omar Choudhry.

… I’m back!

Been away for so long, not because of writers block and not because I no longer wanted to post.

However I’ve been just simply caught up with everyday life.

I didn’t realise how long it’s been, until I got a notification alerting me of a new comment made.

A fellow blogger, an amazing friend, so kind enough to just simply check up and see where I’ve been. Reading the comment in complete shock, I never thought someone would even realise I was gone.

In a visceral moment, I realised how much I missed this online world. This online place where I’ve met all these amazing and caring people. This place where I could unleash all my thoughts and feelings.

To be honest, I don’t think I would’ve come back anytime soon. But every since I read that comment, my mind has been going wild with new thoughts and new post ideas. I just needed to get back into it.

Now Ofcourse I’ll be unleashing all my thoughts and ideas but in addition to those I’d really like to start posting about something you guys have requested every now and then. You guys can spark my imagination with anything you wish… a phrase, a topic, an issue you’ve been thinking about or just simply a word that may come to your mind. I don’t know it’s completely up to you.

Anyways I think I’m getting carried away because I haven’t written in so long, so I’m going to force myself to end it here. I’m looking forward to posting and reading your amazing blogs again.

Stay amazing ❤️

*Message sent…*

A soft short ring,
A little light slowly blinking,
The screen flicks on,
The message in view.

You have always put everything aside,
Always helped,
Never asked for anything in return.

You gave up all your time to be there,
Never once did you reply with “I can’t”,
Or “I’m busy”,
Even though those were their replies whenever you’d ask.

But that’s enough…
You’ve spent enough time solving other people’s problems,
You’ve helped unravel their strings while watching yours get even more tangled.

It times you took a step back,
Paid attention to yourself,
And took some time off from being a human diary.

However you’re way too kind,
And just can’t help it.

As much as you try to take care of yourself,
As hard as you try to put yourself first.
Somehow it just doesn’t end up happening.

“Yes I’m free, how can I help?”

An attempt to fool them…

Eyes start to sting,

Chest slightly hurting,

A lump welling up,

A headache slowly forming.

 

Putting the coffee down,

Breathing in deeply,

And exhaling calmly,

You wipe away the stray tears,

Fake a smile,

And look up into those familiar pair of eyes…

 

However you fail the attempt at trying to fool them,

As a split second later,

You realise,

They were embedded with nothing but disappointment!
