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!

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.

Tearing Down Walls


I’ve built up so many walls.
It might take some time to tear them all down.
But, I’m working on it.
Slowly…

It took me my whole life to build these walls.
I’ve worked every day of my life.
I’m proud of this work I’ve done.
But, I think I’m ready to tear them down.

I’m ready to feel free.
I’m tired of hiding behind these walls.
I feel like I’m suffocating.
I need to breathe again.

These walls are not helping me.
These walls are hurting me.
These walls are depressing.

I thought I needed them.
To feel safe.
To feel secure.
To feel happy.
To feel good.

But, I think I’m wrong.
I think these walls are stopping me.
I think these walls are holding me back.
I think I need to break down these walls.

But, how?

How do I tear down my whole life?
How do I forget about it all?
How can I leave it all behind me?


I haven’t exactly found an answer to that question, but here’s a song that has helped me start to understand why these walls are hurting me.

Never Lost – Song

Thanks for reading!
I hope this post encourages you & reminds you that it’s never too late to break down the walls.

In my thoughts…

There’s so much happening up there.
All the time.
It never shuts off.
It’s always running at a million miles an hour.

I wish it would just turn off.
I need a break.
From all of them.
I just want peace for a minute.

I just can’t anymore

They don’t even agree with each other

They’re all over the place

I don’t know how to respond

. . .

It feels so much better.
When it finally slows down,
And let’s me breathe.


Thanks for reading!
And, remember to consistently take time for yourself because your brain needs it in order to recharge, and be ready to give 100%!

A Time For Everything!

Have you ever asked yourself the question: “What am I still doing here?”.

. . .

Well, I have. And, I know it’s never a good question to ask yourself because it very rarely has a good answer. (the answer to that question usually discourages you.)


You see… Usually, when you ask yourself that question it signifies that you are tired of where you are currently in life, and you are aching for change; for something more.
That question makes you fell stuck, but you don’t know what to do.
All you know is you want to change something (you don’t want to be “here” asking yourself that question), but you don’t know what’s coming next.

Well, let me just tell you that you are “here” for a purpose, and your next step is coming, just be patient because there is a time for everything, and everything happens at a certain time for a specific reason.

Your life is moving, but when you don’t feel it, remember that with time you will move forward to something great. And, when you do, you won’t realize what hit you.
It feels slow now, but once it’s over you won’t remember all this waiting.

Life is all about timing and patience!

The more patience you have, the better things will become in time.
So, focus on where you are right now because your next step is coming (sooner than you think).


Thanks for reading!
I hope this post encouraged you, and gave you hope for your future!

it’s a great encouraging verse about timing and patience!
