I grieved today for the times I have loved so much that I forgot about myself and my own needs. I grieved today for giving so much and forgetting that I should keep a little bit back just for me. I grieved today for getting so caught up in helping others that I overlooked I needed a little help as well. I grieved today for thinking I could just do it all, denying that I also have my limits. And sometimes having limitations is a holy thing. I just wanna love people in a way that makes me feel loved too. I don’t want to forget myself anymore. — S.C. Lourie
There is nothing more beautiful and powerful than a smile that has struggled through the tears. Don’t regret your time, even the moments that were filled with hurt. Smile because you learned from it and gained the strength to rise above it. In the end, it’s not what you have been through that defines who you are; it’s how you got through it that has made you the person you are today, and the person are capable of being tomorrow. — Unknown
Writing Prompt: What do you display on the walls of your home — photos, posters, artwork, nothing? How do you choose what to display? What mood are you trying to create?
I don’t know if there is a particular “mood” I’m trying to create I do know that I like to display photos of family around me …. I guess it gives me comfort. There are lots of things on each and every wall in my bedroom.
I feel like if the walls are bare the house looks empty… and as you can tell from the pictures there is no rhyme or reason to anything in my bedroom. At the end of the day I just want to rest my head somewhere comfortable.
Until Next Time
