Let it all out.
Sometimes it’s the streams we cry that keep us flowing.
Sometimes the valleys our tears create give us depth,
Maybe the oceans we cry, keep us afloat to face another day.
Embrace your emotions,
The roller coaster rides they take us on,
Make us who we are


Sunday Thoughts And A Recipe 29/3/2015

2015 has been a really challenging year for me thus far, it’s forced me to confront truths I’ve hidden away from for so long, being by myself with no one to keep me company apart from my thoughts has helped (more like forced) me to accept my flaws, ponder upon past mistakes and view my future realistically.

I’ve learnt that I haven’t been the greatest friend, daughter or sister. I hope to change that this year, to be more present, in touch and caring. I’ve started journaling and exercising, it’s been pretty therapeutic I now know where I lack and hopefully these bad traits won’t stand in the way of my future relationships.

To being a better friend and confidant here’s a recipe to share with a friend over while sharing secrets or giving advice, this Sundays recipe is the perfect gift, also a delicious warming drink for the cooler nights to come.

I Write

I write to escape

There’s magic in a blank page, being transformed from nothing to blood drenched artwork

I write to escape!

My tormentors, my worries and fears.
Amazing how simple words, written on paper can heal and aid growth better than time!

I write to escape, but now a blank page has lost it’s wonder.
It’s healing powers.
Nowadays pen and paper seems to expand instead of fill the void.

Miserable I have come to be, but time will slowly but eventually mend all that’s been broken.

Meagre Life

Effort is all that I give you,

you reward me meagrely,

I’m so drained, so low.

Filled with nothing but regret and hatred…


How can you be so against me, you belittle every effort I make.

You tend to forget, you and I are one!

Here I am pouring out my affections to a cynical lover, a proud person you have come to be.


See how I nurse you, feed and raise you, 

yet in your quest to hurt me and tear me down, you overlook that we are one.


Oh self tell me how I have wronged you?

Self I do nothing but care for you, yet you refuse to love me

I did without knowing it fall in love with my birth stone , my wedding ring should be a simple gold/platinum band with a white opal . Thanks for reading my short post, as always peace, love and prosperity
