Hello! yes I know, Tuesday’s are supposed to be short story days, unfortunately my short story seemed to lack an ending so it’s Haiku’s today 🙂 Doctor Who? you ask, He’s the mad man with a box The bow tie wearer The naked tree branch, It sways in the wind, so harsh. Still so beautiful. Raindrops kiss my face, The tears run so freely now, Mistaken for rain. If I were to stay I would need more than you promise Actions speak louder… Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough. Follow your dreams … Continue reading Haiku’s
I have no doubt what so ever that mental illness is real. I know it is real, I’ve witnessed it first hand, I’ve dealt with it on a personal level. However I do believe to some extent that we are mollycoddling ourselves and exacerbating the situation. As much as awareness needs to be raised in regards to mental health and in keeping people safe we also need to stop viewing it as a personality trait. It is never something to be ashamed of but it’s not something to be proud of neither. As an anxiety sufferer with PTSD and … Continue reading Stop labelling yourself
Watch the sunshine fade, The remnants of the day, Gone without a trace. The mirror shows truth. A reflection cannot hide. A story, so sad. Sweet sticky buns, A tasty treat for tea-time Sugary goodness. Running, running, fast You will not escape from me, Keep on running, fast. With a cup of tea, I can take on the whole world, Nothing can stop me. Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough. Follow your dreams right now! Don’t wait until tomorrow, next week, next year. Stop planning, start doing 🙂 ‘Blind faith is … Continue reading Wednesday Haiku’s
I enjoy writing Haiku’s. They seem so simple because you have an easy set of rules to stick to but it gets harder and harder. Especially if you want them to make some sort of sense. I could write total gibberish to be honest and sometimes I might. Wednesdays from now on will be my Haiku day. I hope I don’t start repeating myself 🙂 Enjoy ♥ Where are you going? The girl on the bus, where? Will you make it there? I am not a thing, I possess much more than that. My vision is set. Time is never … Continue reading Just some Haikus
I wish the rain would comfort me each time I shed a tear, if this were so, we’d all be drowned within the year. There is no way to hold them back, the fear and pain push through, the emotions cloud my thoughts, the tears obscure my view. For a moment I catch the sunshine, it plays upon the wall, A smile flickers for an instant, the joy before the fall. I feel your presence around me, I know you’re always there It doesn’t quell the loneliness, it’s more than just unfair. I started writing this poem months ago when … Continue reading Sadness
I may have a similar post to this somewhere but the things that make us happy can change on a daily basis. The big things will remain the same, such as friends, family, partners, children etc, but the little things will fluctuate. You might discover a new series on Netflix that you love or find a new flavour of syrup for your coffee, it could be anything.
So here I have a, possibly, new list of ten things that make me happy, that I can think of right now.
- My pets. Their squishy little faces always cheer me up 🙂
2. A perfectly made cup of tea. My Grandad’s were the best but Chris’ aren’t too bad 😛
3. Ducks… I don’t need to explain this one. How could this not make you happy!
4. Doggies! Again, what else can I say? I just want to shnuffle his face! Eeeee!!
5. Trees. They’re just majestic. (Or ‘leafy’, if you’re a fan of Phoebe Buffay)
6. Reading makes me happy because it relaxes me. It’s an escape from real life.
7. It really makes me happy when my teenage son laughs with me. It’s an enormous achievement just to get him to smile, so laughter is like winning the lottery 🙂
9. Running. As much as the build up to it completely kills me, I do love it when I’m out there.
Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough.
Follow your dreams right now! Don’t wait until tomorrow,
next week, next year. Stop planning, start doing 🙂
