Blowin’ In The Wind

Dandelion

Do you ever feel as though you are a dandelion seed, blowin’ freely in the wind with no sure direction of where you’re heading? I have felt that way for years and just yesterday, I was able to overcome one thing that has been holding me back for some time. When you own something of sentimental value and you struggle to do away with it, you aren’t making it any easier for yourself to move on. I always found it difficult to listen to my inner voice in times like those — I would keep tight hold of the things I thought I needed around, but soon came to realise I didn’t need them as much as I may have believed.

After many years of feeling nothing but love, I came to understand it was platonic and that the man I was with, was simply a very good friend and we had always been better that way. Of course, I hold no regrets over the relationship we did share. Now that we are back to being friends and I understand fully there is no longer anything between us, I have found the courage to take off the engagement ring I have been wearing for some time. That, more than anything, is very important to me. I’ve been unable to remove it for so long, but now, I feel completely okay with where we are and no longer feel saddened by any of the things that went wrong between us. Removing that ring was a huge step for me.

Every secret of…

Every secret of a writers soul, every experience of their life, every quality of their mind, is written large in their works.

One Day In Your Life

Tranquil LakeAre you someone who stops and thinks at certain moments in time, to think back on some of the many things you have done in life? Or are you someone who moves on and does not stop at all to look back at the times you’ve had? Do you halt in your steps and try to figure out who you are based on what you have experienced? Or do you keep strolling down that same old road with no thoughts of looking back at all? Will you remember where you have been in the many years you’ve had here on earth? Will it all be forgotten because you did not pause to bask in the essence of a life well lived? Many people forget to slow down and take a look at the world around them; don’t be one of those people. Live life abundantly – and never forget to turn and look back on how far you have come, failures and all.
