Support Systems

We all need a support system. Sometimes we’re down and need to be alone, sometimes we’re down and need support of those near and dear to us; the ones who care about our well being, our mental states, the ones who may not always agree with what we do, but are there to listen to…

Central Park, My Playground

A young girl from Queens, Central Park was my playground. E, F, and R trains, with direct routes to Midtown, placing you at the entrance or within walking distance. Climbing up and down the monstrous rocks and boulders, quite a feat for a child- Rollerblading on the paved park streets of concrete, swerving in and…

Be Kind to Yourself

Some days, I’m not even fully sure what the human experience is supposed to be like. Why are we blessed with these brains that don’t serve us to our higher potential?Sometimes I misspeak words, overthink things, get distracted, criticize myself, worry, stress, complicate things, forget. But I have to stay motivated, keep myself focused and…

Gratitude

Thank you for being you, for unknowingly being a muse, for cracking through my somewhat tough exterior. Thank you for believing in me, for encouraging me to be more active about things I was passive about. I’m still a work in progress, sometimes I fall off, but I think about what you’d say to me…

To be like water

Don’t let self-doubts get in the way of fully achieving your desires. Be fluid, like water. Pic taken by me at Prospect Park, Brooklyn.

It Will Be Okay

Sometimes I wonder, Do I take enough time to pause? To think? I continuously repress less desirable feelings. Coasting on autopilot, acting like I’m unbothered. I’ll allow myself to think that everything will be okay, it will all work itself out. Maybe if I believe it enough, it will be true.   Pic taken by me,…

In the Present

Slaves to time, a concept that quietly dictates our lives. Getting things done while waiting for it to pass, so we can overcome certain feelings, and look forward to pleasantries We anticipate events and outcomes; self-induced anxiety. We live as if time really is a linear concept But what is time really? How do you…

Path of Least Resistance

Nature, the world’s organic symphony Take some time to listen – Hear the trees sway, sometimes they whisper in a light breeze or howl like the lone wolf on a windy night Birds remind us that wildlife lives among us, chirping, calling out to one another in a foreign language Serving as a background soundtrack…

Happiness

A wise man once told me, you have to make time to do the things that make you happy. It almost seemed too easy – and so it was. I made the time.   Pic taken by me, Coronado Island, San Diego.

Revitalize

Possibilities; the sunrise is a blessing. Glittering rays kiss my face, the possibilities of a new day; An awakening Thankful for this moment, a peaceful calm only nature can offer Soothing sounds of waves rolling onto the shore, Set intentions Oh, the difference each day makes A new liberation as the sun warms all in…

Wholeness

Embrace the dark with the light The yin and yang, the language of the universe There will always be a piece of the yin in the yang There will always be a piece of the yang in the yin Ever connected Masculine and feminine These two forces will always be one To think positively, to…
