Embracing Emotion

8/18/2014 - Day Ninety One

Realization: Time doesn't heal wounds, it just makes them less visible to the world.

Since my relationship ended...at first, the negative thoughts won for about a month. Then the bits of happiness started at the thought that each decision was my own.
That's a good thing most would say, except for me the small bits of happiness turned into a fierce defiance of ever again giving someone free reign over my personal independence  or emotions in general.

Not being open to emotion when it involves romance from someone isn't going to take me where I want. So here is my next personal goal. Open up on things that matter. Meet new people that could be important.. and stop running! Embrace emotions.

Music: Looking Too Closely - Fink

A great song for the reflective times and it is perfect on repeat.

Strength & Sadness

9/12/2013 - Day Ninety

Changes

As changes linger
The fear grips my conciousness
Unknown is worst than unstable most days
Progress takes progression

Each step has purpose
Is that purpose failure?
Lessons learned come from failure and success
For without failure who really know success

Let it be for it will anyways
Let it be to rest
Let it be for spontaneous can't come from control
Let it be for sleep

Last year in July I wrote this about changing jobs. Here I sit at the end of a six year relationship and trying to figure out how to take this giant negative weight outta my head. And this crazy thing I wrote fits again.

The smiles are fake for now and I guess they might be for awhile.  Time heals, they say. Anyone who knows me can tell you I am a very impatient person. The feeling like you can't breathe and that a giant weight has been lifted off you in unison. Strange!  

Music - Summertime Sadness - Lana Del Rey

It has been a bit since I was able to update my life. I have missed the creative writing here dearly. Check out Delineation my freelance design company being launched as week speak.

There is no single path to success because there is no single way to succeed.  It is a journey, no way around it.  There are paths already available that others have made and/or taken.  History has shown that the best paths, the most successful paths, are those blazed by the individual who determines their own path, a path on which they can create marketable inspirations and love the journey along the way.

Land of Hearts, Love and Heartland...and Thursday Quotables, what :)

8/30/12 - Day Eighty Eight

Music:


Been a bit since I got to update. I have fallen in love with this song and the t.v. show it is attached to.  If you have never had the chance to watch Heartland on GMC in the US....you should! It is a show that doesn't need all the sex and drugs to be great! The actors are fantastic and I can't wait for the new season to start in Canada on Sept 16th.  It takes a bit for the new episodes to get on GMC but it is worth the wait.

Realization: Working hard is hard work but without it I just have work, and who needs that.

My new job is amazing.  I love the team and being a good addition to it.  I have recently been asked why I feel the need to work so hard at whatever I am trying to accomplish and for me the answer is if I don't what's the point all together?

Changes

7/7/2012 -Day Eighty Seven

As changes linger
The fear grips my conciousness
Unknown is worst than unstable most days
Progress takes progression

Each step has purpose
Is that purpose failure?
Lessons learned come from failure and success
For without failure who really know success

Let it be for it will anyways
Let it be to rest
Let it be for spontaneous can't come from control
Let it be for sleep

The thoughts of the recent changes in my life. Friday is my last day at Starbucks and the beginning of my career as cafe manager at Barnes and Noble. I will miss the team I have worked so closely with and hopefully we will all stay in touch.

Organize and clean my apartment
Create baby shower invitations for a friend
Rebrand my neighbor's concrete company logo
Take a camping vacation to the mountains in Georgia
Continue the great work with Mosaic
