It’s the little things

Look at me being consistent. I’ll wait for the applause. I have something interesting to share with you. Remember when I told you that my faith was on the rocks (no, no alcohol jokes here lol)? Two weeks ago, a man who was evangelizing walked up to me and handed me a pamphlet. ‘Do you…

It’s Good News!

WHEW! Finally! I feel like most of my personal blogs here are of me beating myself down and picking apart all the things I feel are wrong with me and my life in general. We are going to step away from that today and give myself credit for the amazingly good job I've been doing…

Early Mornings

There’s this online magazine I read called Zikoko. I don’t think I can hype it up enough. It makes me laugh and cry and sometimes, the quizzes make me feel like the writers dabble in black magic because of how accurate the answers are for me. This morning, I read something that made me very…

Lust.

I wouldn't even see them with their clothes on anymore. I welcomed it at first - it was exciting to me. It was when I realized I couldn't stop that I panicked.

Built for love.

Hello! It's been a while since I've talked to you. I'm not even going to sit here and lie - it was intentional. I was running away because I was embarrassed. I'm not the same person you met and I didn't want you to see this part of me. However, I feel like I'm accountable…

One last time.One last touch
One last hope 
One last chance

Better.

Do you remember the promises -the ones we made as we lay counting the squares on my ceiling?Do you remember the words you spoke -the ones that were so gentle and soft it made my ears tingle?Do you remember the tears -the ones that we shed because our lovewas too intense for us to handleDo…

Strains from the inside.

The doctor gave me stronger puffers today He says that there's still a strain in my chest That strain is from missing you, my love missing the sounds of your laughter. Those random breathless moments are from missing your heartwarming hugs the sporadic moments of pain - a way of letting me know it never…

F is for Family.

I travelled home last week for a celebration. It was an amazing family reunion and to be honest, I've only been back a day but I already feel out of place. I miss my family - my safe space. I have felt true happiness this past week; pure joy, security, calmness and peace. Maybe I'll…
