Skills That I Learned From Grief

When you're a little kid, everything seems so simple and the only thing that you need to worry about is whether to watch this cartoon or that. Of course, I do come from the age of Nintendo and Saturday Morning Cartoons. Instead of playing with an iPhone, I was outside with my brother and playing … Continue reading Skills That I Learned From Grief

Revenge Of The NutCracker

One goal I've always wanted to accomplish was to make movies and, today, I decided to try and learn how to create a Stop Motion film. I did have a lot of fun and, though this isn't 'spectacular', I do plan on making more and learning as much as I can for when I work … Continue reading Revenge Of The NutCracker

And to find that inspiration, it's very important to keep looking up. 🙂 Hope you all have a fantastic weekend and thank you so much for visiting my blog. ❤ Photography … Continue reading Look up!

Mingo Falls

My family and I took a trip four years and nine days ago that is still deeply ingrained in my memory. We went to the Smoky Mountains to enjoy a weekend away from everything and spent most of our time on hiking trails to find waterfalls and look at the beauty of nature. This particular … Continue reading Mingo Falls

Out Of The Comfort Zone

How I stayed up all night, just staring at the ceiling, and how my mind and anxiety got the better of me with thoughts of all the negative things that could possibly … Continue reading Out Of The Comfort Zone

A feeling of absolute sorrow, sadness, and despair because one's expected outcome didn't get fulfilled. The pain … Continue reading Dealing With Anxiety

Edge

Early morning dew kisses the meadow, Sun barely making its way over the hill. Pale blue sky behind the rainbow, Staring at the beauty - standing still.   Another day breaks as I stand at the edge, So many choices to make - where to start? Then I remember when I made my pledge, To … Continue reading Edge

Nerve

Eyes closed and I count to three, This fear will be the death of me. Fingers - one by one - clenched tight, Mustn't look at the source of fright.   Keep your eyes closed, stop breathing. At least, make it so your muscles are freezing. Say that over and over again, reminder to avoid … Continue reading Nerve

Treasures

A life that's spanned three decades, So many things I've collected. Multiple interests - jack of all trades, A reason behind things I've selected.   Books, pens, and even some technology, Rests in my private little space. But do they hold a place in my anthology? Or is it, rather, the thrill of the chase? … Continue reading Treasures
