An Overwhelmed Heart

“When my heart is overwhelmed,
lead me to the rock.”


it’s been
well
a month..
but
it’s felt
like
a year!

i’ve been searching
i’ve been learning
i’ve been leaning
i’ve been reaching

and
it has
exhausted me
but with you
i know
it was
all
so worth
it
because

although
i feel defeated
frustrated
confused
alone
lost
i look up
because
i know
that

you’ve waited
so long
for me
to come
to you
for me
to learn
to lean
on you

so
now
i come
with no expectations
into your home
i accept
your invitation
to perfect
love
to
break these
cycles

your invitation
and never-failing
love
steadies my feet
and
overwhelms my heart


Thanks for reading!
This poem was inspired by my favorite song from January (it’s been on repeat all month)!

Godly Expectations Released

What can I do?
How can I live rightly?
When will it be enough?


You’ve probably asked yourself these questions before (at least once).
Well, here’s a poem with the answer to how you can truly fulfill God’s expectations:


There’s nothing
you can do.
It will never
be enough.

Stop placing overwhelming
expectations on yourself
to please God
and others.

He never expects
anything – ever.
Just pure love and
mustard seed sized faith.

Don’t ruin
His perfection
by making Him
unattainable.

He loves you
simply because
that’s just
who He is.

No expectations
or other motives.
Just simple – perfect
fatherly love.

Stop putting Him
in a box
that’s out of reach and
start accepting His love!


Thanks for reading!
I hope this encouraged you to release your expectations of yourself, others, and God; and start living in perfect freedom with Him.

This poem was inspired by THIS SONG!

The Moon Keeps Shinning!

As I sit here
under the stars
starring at the moon
watching the clouds go by
listening to my best friend
I can’t help
but be intrigued
by the metaphor
in front of me
in the brightness
of the moon

It just keeps shinning
no matter how dark
the clouds get
or how many
clouds cover it
it never dims it’s light

That’s the metaphor

And that’s what
I’m learning
and striving to be
more like the moon

To never
let the darkness
dim my light


Thanks for reading! I hope this poem inspired you to keep shinning; even in the darkest of places & times because the Light of the world can live inside of you. And, when it does, your light will never fade!

This post was inspired by the picture on this post, this song, (and Christmas time)! ๐Ÿ™‚

Simpler Times…

click the picture to listen to the song
that inspired the following post

wishing
dreaming
hoping
for
simpler times
to come back
when everything
was so much better
can we rewind
to those times
the memories are fading
I can’t remember
what it used to be like
I just wanna go back
to those moments
where no cares were had
and no pain was felt
the moments when everything
seemed perfect
what happened to that perfection
to that bliss
where did those moments go
when did the pain get real
when did this chaos begin
where did time go
what happened to the laughter
why did everyone leave
my heart aches
for simpler times

times
when
jumping
in a
pile
of
leaves
was the
highlight
of my
day

I miss the days
when I had no worries
and no doubts
when life was simpler
and happier
those simpler times
are just a distant
memory now
that I can’t get back
no matter what
those days
are gone

I guess
I just gotta embrace
the now
the times today
simple or not
this is the present
let’s make it a gift
live in the moment
hopeless or hopeful
these times are all I have
now is the time
to embrace this moment


embrace the now
miss the simpler times
that’s just life
it goes on
miss the simpler times
but keep moving
forward to better things
remaining hopeful
for better times


Thanks for reading! I hope this inspired you to remember the simpler times behind you, and to keep looking forward to create more good times.
Let’s go into 2021 with hopeful eyes, and big dreams that we can’t wait to conquer this new year!

Look! – A Poem (no strings attached)

Find a mirror
Take a selfie
Look
At your reflection
My perfect child
My beautiful creation
Can’t you see
The beauty within

In your eyes
It’s so evident
Look
At your worth
Use my eyes
Look
At your imperfections
Through my eyes
Look
At the beauty
That I see

Do you see it
Can you see
What I see
Look
I am perfect
In your eyes
But you still
Can’t see it
Look
At my spirit
Thriving within you
I’ve made you
So beautifully perfect
As I wanted

When I
Look
At you
I see
Only beauty
Immense perfection
Total worth
And
I remember
How much
I love you

My love
For you
Comes with
No strings attached
It will
Always remain
Even when
You don’t
see it
I will
Look
At you
And
See you
My beautiful
Perfect creation
My love
For you
Comes with
No strings attached

Now take a moment
Look
Find that mirror again
Take a different selfie
Look
At your perfect reflection
Through your creators’ eyes
Now
Do you see it

All your purpose
Your endless worth
The overwhelming love
I give you
Look
All those things
I’ve called you
To great things

Do you see it yet?
Look
When you can’t love yourself
I want to show you
My amazing love for you
For you to start and
Look

At your self
Through my eyes
You will see
Just how
Worthy
Perfect
And
Beautiful
You truly are
Look
At what I created
To do such great things
Look
At me
At others
And most importantly
Look
At yourself
Through my eyes


Thanks for reading!
I hope this poem inspired you to start looking at yourself & the world around you with the eyes of the creator of the universe!

P.S. The picture above has a pretty deep story behind it that I was going to share in this post,
but then I decided to leave this poem as it is,
and make another post about the story behind that picture
(this is just a sneak peak into that story).
Check back next week for the full story behind that picture!

Growing Lungs & Changing Heart

I am
sculpting
strengthening
growing
your lungs
making them
perfect
strong
and bigger than ever
because
I need you
to
tell the world
about me
through your story

I am
changing
re-molding
re-shaping
your heart
making it
heavy and giving it
the desires
of my heart
because
I want you
to
follow my plan
for you
and
love others
as I love you


Thanks for reading!
I hope this reminded you that change is necessary for growth; but you can’t grow if you don’t embrace it!
When you embrace change, that’s when amazing things start to happen in your life!

This post was inspired by this song!

A Flower Under Water

Drowning
Suffocating
But still
Beautiful

Flourishing
Under the weight
And pressure
Of the waves

In the darkness
Of the unknown
Remaining strong
And steadfast

Never giving up
Through all the battles
Always fighting
And standing tall

Learning to breathe
Again
Under the crushing
Waves

Rising up
Again and again
Attack after attack
Embracing authority


Thanks for reading!
I hope this inspired you to keep fighting, no matter how many battles come your way. Never stop standing tall in the midst of all the negativity!

This is how I fight my battles…


So, I’ve recently gone through a pretty testing season of life. And, I’ve learned that the only way to win battles is to fight them the right way.

But, before I go into the details, here’s a poem I wrote during this past season:

Dear God,
Iโ€™m done
Iโ€™m giving up
I canโ€™t carry this anymore
I have nothing left
The world couldnโ€™t fill
What Iโ€™m searching for
But I still canโ€™t
Seem to find it
Dear God,
Help me
Fight this battle
Take this weight
From my shoulders
Itโ€™s killing me
Iโ€™m done with the world
Iโ€™m done searching
Show me your truth
Reveal your glory to me
Dear God,
Please
Donโ€™t make me wait
Forgive me
Restore me in your love
Fill me with peace
Show me your grace
Help me see you
Be my answer
Dear God,
Iโ€™m done searching
For temporary answers
In the world
Because
You are the answer
Iโ€™ve been looking for
This whole time
You were there
Waiting for me
To find you
Dear God,
Thank you
For waiting
For me
To come
And find you
In the midst
Of the chaos
You are
And will always
Be near


You see, I used to get really anxious in uncomfortable situations. And, I mean, REALLY anxious; I would bite my nails A LOT, and start to shut down to the people around me. I still currently have no nails while typing this, but they’re growing back, slowly (just like my relationships with some people)…
Anyways, this past season or my life (the past 6 months) have been teaching me a lot about how to fight my battles in a positive, and productive way.

I’ve learned that fighting my battles is impossible alone; my own strength is not enough (that causes me to bite my nails a lot), and even when people help me, they can’t fully win the battle (especially spiritual battles). The only way I can truly win all my battles is by fighting them with God. He is the ultimate protector in my battles, and He gives me everything I need to win all my battles.
And, this song has been an amazing reminder, and encourager for me, so I hope it inspires you as well.


Thanks for reading!
I hope this post was insightful and encouraging to your soul; and that it filled your spirit with a new sense of hope for your battles.

P.S. The featured picture of this post is me, in the middle of a battle
(that’s how I fight them now.. and it’s successful everytime)!

Finding Freedom by Popping Bubbles


If you don’t know where I’ve been for the past 4 months,
check out this post before reading the following story.


Running
Chasing
Catching
Finding
Discovering
Learning
Building
Working
Crying
Smiling
Laughing
Hiding
Hurting
Thinking
Talking
Processing
Praying

But, ultimately

Popping
Breaking
Destroying
Tearing
Shattering

This is my story from the past 4 months
about how I discovered my true freedom by popping bubbles:

You see, before coming to YWAM (Youth with a Mission) to do a DTS (Discipleship Training School), I used to have these bubbles. They were safe places where I could go to hide, where I could go to just feel safe, and where I could go to get away from everything. And, I was content in my own little world surrounded by these bubbles. Or, so I thought…

“Please don’t pop my bubbles!”

I felt content with my bubbles because they gave me a sense of safety. I liked looking at their beauty because they made me feel loved. I enjoyed their peacefulness because they made me feel comforable.

But, these bubbles would also really hurt me. I wouldn’t be able to let people get too close because they would pop them. Letting people get close enough to pop them seemed like a good and productive idea, but it never was because they never knew which bubbles to pop at the right time. They just wanted to pop them all right away before I was ready, which led to me being hurt often.

“Some people have no self-control with bubbles.”

So, during the past 4 months, I’ve been slowly learning that I am the one that gets to decide when I’m ready to pop a bubble. When I know I’m ready to pop a bubble, that’s when I can let others in to help and encourage me in the process.
I’ve learned that I can’t just let people get close enough and expect them to not pop any bubbles. So, I need to know when the right time for me is to let people get close enough to avoid being hurt by them choosing which bubbbles to pop in their timing.

“Stop! That’s too much, too fast; slow down please!”

So, I’ve learned that in order to let people get close enough, I need to start popping these bubbles on my own (with help & support) because it’s the only way I will feel ready to pop each bubble.
I’ve discovered that only when I’m truly ready to pop a bubble / get rid of something will I feel complete freedom from it.

“It won’t hurt if you’re ready.”

Sometimes I might think I’m not ready, but that’s when I learn how much power fear has in my decisions. Sometimes it takes others to encourage the popping of bubbles.


Freedom won’t be comfortable at first; it takes courage to allow hurt to enter our lives. But, when we start seeing the process of popping bubbles as an exciting and joyful time, we forget about the hurt because we start to see our life in a new, clear way; without the distraction of bubbles.

“Freedom is right in from of you! But, will you choose it?”

Freedom is an interesting concept because they say it’s freely given to you, and you can take it when you want. But, they fail to mention how much it hurts to actually receive it because it costs’ your total comfort. But, that’s when you have to ask yourself:

“Is freedom worth your comfort?”


Well, during the past 4 months, I’ve learned that my answer is definitely YES.
I’ve decided that I am fully willing to step out of my comfort zone to gain freedom because it’s so worth it, and at the end of the day I can’t hold onto them forever anyway.
I’ve realized that if giving-up my self-made comforts is all I need to do to receive true freedom then, I am willing to pop any bubbles that stop me from receiving this amazing freedom.

And, that’s my story from the past 4 months.


Thanks for reading!
I hope this inpsired you to think about the things in your life that could be holding you back from receiving true freedom. If I’ve learned anything during this time, it’s that:
TRUE FREEDOM IS WORTH SO MUCH MORE THAN YOUR COMFORT!

She had no idea…


That girl in the picture
Standing there
Smilling through the pain
Just living life

That girl in the picture
She never could’ve
Known or imagined
What was coming

That girl in the picure
Looking at the world
Blind to the future
She had no idea

That girl in the picture
She couldn’t even
Begin to prepare
For this!


Seriously!

How could she know?
How could she prepare?
How could she see?

She didn’t have a map –
Or a to-do list.
She just needed time.


Time is the key
Everything unfolds so quickly

Time to remember & forget
And, process it all

That girl in the picture
Wasn’t ready for this

So, give her time!


Thanks for reading!
I hope this poem inspired you to slow down & give yourself time to take a moment to enjoy life!

Be patient, enjoy life, &
trust His perfect timing!

P.S. The featured picture on this post was the inspiration for this poem because when looking at it, I was reminded of who I was in that moment, & I realized how different I used to be.
It reminded me to be kind to myself because we all need time to process through life.

No More Hiding!

My time has come
Hope has won
I’ve been found

Fear is gone
Love has won
I’ve been covered

The lies are gone
Truth has won
I’ve been set free from doubts

Broken love has vanished
Peace has won
I’ve stopped running

Quitting has no place here
Comfort has won
I’ve found my home

Hiding places have disappeared
Light has won
I’ve started shinning


Thanks for reading!
I hope this post encouraged you to come out of hiding
because life really is so much better when you are free!
Don’t hide who you are because it’s only hurting you;
God is waiting for you to realize that you have been found!
He is greater than all your fears; stop hiding & trust Him!

Hide n’ Seek with Myself

Who am I?
What’s my talent?
Where do I belong?
When is it gonna be my time?
How will I find it?

All these questions
Remain unanswered
Leaving me lost
And confused
Searching for more

I can’t seem to see
Nothing gets better
I feel stuck
In this endless cycle
Of this identity crisis

All my life
I’ve searched
And tried to get out
But life always catches me
And I fall backwards

But I don’t give up
I continue
I press on
Moving forward
Must be better

. . .

Because I still believe
That my time
Is coming
So I hold on
To the Hope

I no longer fear
I am held
I have hope
I must be patient
I will make it

I will find me
I can’t hide forever
I must continue to seek
I will end
This game


Thanks for reading!
I hope this post inspired you to never stop searching because one day you will find yourself & everything will fall into perfect place.

Hearing v.s. Understanding

I heard the call
I answered the call
I fulfilled the call

But,

I don’t understand the call
I don’t feel the call
I don’t see the call

But,

I know I heard the call
I know I’m supposed to be here
I know this is right

But,

I don’t know why
I don’t know what I’m doing
I don’t know; what if I’m wrong?


You see, hearing & understanding the call are two different things.
You can hear it so clearly, & still not understand what it means.


That’s my life right now.
I heard the call & I answered it, but I don’t know what I’m doing.
So, I’m learning that this is where faith plays a big role in answering the call.
It all comes back to trust; trusting that saying yes to the call will always lead to something great.


Thanks for reading!
I hope this inspired to always keep the faith because
something good will eventually come from it.

Alive Again!

So, this post is inspired by a personal experience Iโ€™ve had recently,
that taught me A LOT of lessons!


Woke up
Disappointed
Crying my eyes out
Feeling lost

Cleaned up
Self confronted
Full of doubts
Feeling done

Looked up
Refocused
Found my roots
Feeling motivated 

Stood up
Restarted
Took a new route
Feeling different 

Jumped up
Wisdom gained 
In pursuit – of
Feeling alive again! 


Thanks for reading!
I hope that this poem helps you realize that there is always something to learn from new (good or bad) experiences!

P.S. The following song also inspired this poem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXHrm_TDEIw

These scars…

These scars won’t last
They might hurt now
The pain just feels too real
Will they ever go away?

These scars cut deep
They are changing you
You can barely think anymore
Will it ever become normal again?

These scars are opening a new chapter
They could become positive
But, right now, they feel deadly
Will it ever feel good?

These scars have taken something from you
Maybe it’s happiness, or sadness
Or, innocence, or willingness
Or, maybe even your life?

But, even with these scars
You are still here
There’s still time
So, what will you do now?


These scars is a metaphorical poem I wrote during a confusing time in my life.
The scars mentioned (while they could be real scars) represent past mistakes/memories that will never be forgotten, and that are constantly haunting and hurting.”


Thank you for reading to the end!
I hope this poem encourages you to turn your scars into amazing things for your future self
because it’s never too late!

P.S. This poem was also inspired by this song!

The Real Neat Blog Award!

I love the wordpress blogging community!


When I started this blog, I wasnโ€™t sure what I was getting into.
But now, I love writing, and I love the community that comes with it.
I also didn’t realize people would actually read my blog, let alone like it enough to nominate me for awards (I know these awards are not mandatory, so when I get nominated I always take the time to do it because I feel so grateful, and I want to keep the award train moving forward).
So, thank you Emma & Nathan’s Travels. I really appreciate the nomination!


The rules:

Although a blogger doesnโ€™t really need to participate in any award nominations, I donโ€™t mind as it gives me a chance to show my appreciation to other bloggers. Plus, itโ€™s free exposure should you wish to participate. Now, for the rules:

  • Put the award logo on your blog.
  • Answer 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you.
  • Thank the people who nominated you, linking to their blogs.
  • Nominate any number of bloggers you like, linking to their blogs.
  • Let them know you nominated them (by commenting on their blog, etc.)

My answers to Emma & Nathan’s Travels Questions:

1- What is your favourite destination so far and why?

That’s a difficult question; there’s always one thing I love from every destination. But, if I had to choose, I would say: Belize (mostly because I went off the grid, with no connection for a week, and it felt great, and was very refreshing and relaxing).
And, also because it’s a beautiful country that not enough people know about!

How I spent most of my days during that trip! 
(in a hammock under the sun and palm trees)

2- Why did you start, and why do you continue blogging?

I started blogging while I was living in the small town of Jasper, Alberta, Canada (for 6 months).
I was working and living on site at a lodge in the middle of the highway/woods, with not much to do around (except for hiking, and thinking). And, I started thinking a lot about my purpose, which made me feel very insignificant.
So, one day I decided it would be a good idea to start a blog (it always seemed interesting to me, and now I had time). 
At the time, the blog was a way to just write and share my thoughts to see if anyone else could relate.
My first posts were not at all about traveling or inspirational, but I continued blogging because I started enjoying it (I never realized how much I actually liked writing, it seemed so boring in school). Now, it was actually fun!
I continue blogging today because I love writing about my adventures, and sharing them with others. I love traveling and I want to inspire others to step out of their comfort zone and travel as well.
I also love reading and following other blogs.
And, I love the small community I’ve formed, that follows my blog and adventures.

3- Is your blog as successful as it youโ€™d hoped, or is it still a working progress?

Definitely still a work in progress.
But, then again, I don’t really know how successful I planned for it to be.
I started it on a whim, so I didn’t really think about the “success”. I just kinda liked having a place to write, where other people could read it, and hopefully get inspired.
So, in that way, I guess you could say that it’s more successful now, than I originally thought because more people are reading my blog.

4- Upload your favourite photo from your blog and describe why.

I like this photo because it was one of my first pictures I posted on this blog. And, it was taken at the same time than when I started this blog.
And, it depicts what I was feeling when I started this blog (small and insignificant). In a way, it’s my reminder of how far I’ve come (which I think is what the post with this pictures was about…).

5- Describe something about yourself that isnโ€™t mentioned in your blogs.

My dream job is to become a flight attendant. It’s been my dream ever since I can remember (since I was 4 or 5 years old). I’ve always found it interesting and exciting. And, now I that I’ve traveled abroad more and learned more languages, I realize that it still really is my ultimate dream job.

I just really love flying!

6/7- How do you manage your time when it comes to blogging? Do you write posts and schedule them for publication or do you write as you go?

It depends. I don’t have a blogging schedule (I can post up to 10 times in a month, and then go a whole month without posting).
If I have a lot of inspiration (and time), I will write a bunch of posts, and schedule them.
But, if I’m busy, and only get inspired on the spot (like with this post), I will write and post it on the spot because I don’t want to forget (and it doesn’t deserve to be scheduled), so I write and post it as soon as possible.

Adulting / Living Abroad

There’s a lot to learn how to do all over again.

. . .

It doesn’t matter if you were a pro at all those things in your home country because everything will be different in a foreign country.

Yes, there will be similarities, and you will learn the differences quickly. But, you will still need to learn the best place to grocery shop, the best method of transportation to get around (bus, subway, taxi), and the currency (so you know when something is overpriced).

And, on top of discovering all those things, you will need to learn a foreign language.

AND, while you are learning ALL that, you also need to deal with homesickness and culture shock (at least for the first few months).

Now, I’m not saying all this to scare you. I personally have been loving my experience living abroad. I’m telling you all this so you know what’s coming: A LOT OF WORK AND DEDICATION! But, it’s 100% worth it.

Yes, there will be ups and downs. There will be days where you won’t want to speak the language (you’ll get tired of needing to train your brain in a foreign language everyday). There will be days where you’ll just want to do nothing. But, those days are the best because they will teach you the most.
If you power through those days, you will realize how worth it, it is, to learn to adult/live in a foreign country.
It will make it that much easier for your return to your home country. Adulting/living in a foreign country is an amazing, life-changing experience.

It really is LIFE-CHANGING because after you live in a foreign country for more than 2 or 3 months, your view of everything changes. But, the only way to understand this life-changing experience is to live it yourself!
So, step out of your comfort zone & live this amazing experience!

Thanks for reading!

I hope this inspired you to step out of your comfort zone and change your perspective!

Influence…

“The capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behavior of someone or something, or the effect itself.

. . .

INFLUENCE. …such a big, complicated word that many people don’t like to use because they don’t really understand it.
And, I know this is true because I googled it, and the following questions popped up. These questions inspired me to write this post with my thoughts and answers to them.

. . .


  • What is an influencer?

Literally, ANYONE!

  • Who can I influence?

Anyone, whoever you think you can teach and influence.
Usually you end up influencing the people around you the most, without even realizing.

  • Why are some people better influencers?

It all depends on their confidence level and the passion they’re inspiring into others.
People notice confident and positive individuals because that’s what everyone strives for in life. (You can’t expect people to follow you if you’re always negative.)

  • Am I an influencer?

YES! Of course! You influence people everyday without even realizing it (by the way you act, dress, talk, etc.). That’s why you should always strive to be your best around others because they WILL notice, and it might even inspire them.

  • How do I become an influencer?

You already are one! ๐Ÿ˜‰
Just by being you, and doing what you love with confidence and passion.


You don’t need to do anything special to influence people.
You just gotta be your best, confident and passionate self, and people will start to notice your positivity, and they will ask you for your secrets.

That’s the best influencer!

Being 100% yourself, without thinking about what others might think of you (that’s the secret to being a great influencer).

So, if you really want to become an amazing influencer; start by working on your confidence and passions because people will notice, and they WILL take notes.
And, remember:

You influence people everyday,
so make sure you bring your best self forward everyday!
And, wake up everyday thinking about how you can
be a light / breath of fresh air in someone’s day!

I hope this post influenced you into being a better influencer!

Blessed life!

Look around.
What do you see?
Chaos or peace?
Yelling or praying?
What is surrounding you?

. . .

Do you appreciate it all?
Or do you take advantage of it?
Are you humbled by it?
Or are you overlooking it all?

Do you care about others?
Or, do you say:
“Everyone for themselves!”
“You gotta make your own life!”

Are you a helper?
A fighter?
A lover?
Or, a hater?

Do you appreciate the world we live in?
Or, do you constantly think it’s trash;
That we created,
And, you don’t think it can be cleaned up.

Are you an optimist?
Or, a pessimist?
Where do you draw the line?
Between, good and bad?

. . .

Where SHOULD we draw the line?
Between, good and bad?

What defines “good”?
What makes something “bad”?

Is it in the perspective?
Or, is it just a fact?

Why are some things considered “good”?
And, other things considered “bad”?

Between killing and loving?
We know which is better,
by the way it feels.

But, what about?
Between loving or helping?
They both feel “good”..

But, can they really both BE “good”?
Think about it this way:

Some people don’t want help,
So, that’s their “bad” one; while others –
Don’t like love because they’ve never truly felt it.

So, can some things be, both, good and bad?
Is it really just all in the perspective of the person?

. . .

There’s never just one way to look at something. There’s always a different perspective. There will always be someone with a different opinion, and, that’s what makes life so great & interesting.
Meeting people with different perspectives, and, learning about their views on life.

That’s why I love to travel. It makes me feel so blessed. And, happy. And, accomplished.
I want to learn, and experience as many perspectives as I can, good and bad. So, I can see the world through a different type of blessed, and see how truly blessed I am.

Plot twist…

Well, that was unexpected!
Why did that happen?
I feel so disconnected!

. . .

Life throws plenty of plot twists.
They are always confusing.
And, they seem to always persist.

There’s no perfect reaction.
But, that’s the point.
They give you a new fascination.

It’s like reading a good book –
Everything the characters do is surprising,
but you keep reading, and don’t overthink or overlook.

You know, the author had a point.
They were purposely plot twisting,
to try to be interesting, and not disappoint.

That should always be our reaction –
To unexpected moments in life.
Instead of being confused, let’s learn from it, and take action.

Life is filled with the unexpected.
Plot twists change the story of our lives,
And, make us feel more connected.


Thanks for reading!
I hope this inspired you to embrace the plot twists in your life! They are forming you into a better, stronger and even smarter person. The way you react to plot twists will guide your life!

Rain…

The sound of rain –
I hear it outside my window
It’s a calming, and sometimes annoying sound.
I stare out at the rainy world!

The feel of rain –
I feel it –
Soaking through my clothes.
It makes me cold and soggy,
But, I can’t be mad at it.

Rainy days are not fun.
But, they are a great reminder –
To never overlook the sunny days.

Never just take advantage of the sun, because the rain will come.

But, after the rain,

The sun will come out again,
And, maybe it’ll even form a beautiful rainbow.

So, I wait for the end of the rain.
I sit here,
Shivering and drenched,
But, still not complaining.

. . .

Just give the sun, and rain their turn in the spotlight. Just like the sun, and the moon.

During the day, the sun outshines the moon, but at night, when the sun is sleeping, the moon has it’s time to shine.

We must appreciate the rain (moon) while waiting for the sun to come out again.

And, one great way to appreciate the rain is to remember this:

The rain is our great reminder –
To be grateful for everything,
And to find the good in everyday,
And to stop complaining about rain.

So, instead,

Let’s stand out in the rain!
Let’s get cold, and soggy!

Let’s wait for it to dry!
Let’s feel the rain!


Thanks for reading!

I hope this post inspired you to appreciate the small (sometimes annoying) things in life because they can make all the difference!
