Pose: West End – Sunset Couples Pose
They tell me that a milk bath is good for the skin. It makes it soft and smooth to the touch. What do you say, let’s test that theory. . . .
There are times in life where you’re stuck ‘on the fence’ about where to go, things to do, and even the people in your life, and that’s okay. It’s when those things start to bring you heartache, misery, and pain that it’s time to pack your bags and move on.
I just need a break. There’s been so much going on right now that I’m being pulled all over. But a break is coming soon. I need it. I’m sure I’m not the only one. Until then, I’ll take a moment to breathe and reflect on the good things in life and what I have.
Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.”
― Maya Angelou, Wouldn’t Take Nothing for My Journey Now
I wish that I could be as open about things as other people. I try. I sincerely do. I have close friends that will listen if I tell them that I need to talk and they will do so without judgement.
Or at least I thought I did.
“I don’t believe in the smile that you leave
when you walk away and say goodbye…”
Recent events have caused me to become more closed mouthed than I usual am, and this in turn has caused me to retreat more into my island of safety within. Though, isn’t that what we all tend to do, at some point, when we are faced with a situation that’s too much for us to comprehend? We back off so we can get a clear head and try to understand the situation before we address it.
Sometimes we can’t understand things on our own and we need help. We need someone to help us untangle the confusion in our minds so we can think clearly. Then again, sometimes, we don’t want to address an issue because we know that if we do our fears will become reality.
“I don’t expect the world to move underneath me,
but for gods sake, could you try?”
I’m not talking about made-up fears, but the fear that comes with acceptance. I don’t want to accept these viewpoints of my friends. I don’t want to accept the fact that they have reduced my thoughts and feelings to a side notation of ‘things that don’t matter’. I don’t want to accept the fact that maybe they were never really my friends at all.
I’m a big proponent of learning about different people: their cultures, way of life, and what makes them tick. It’s how we grow. But is a person really your friend if they discredit the things you say? Are they your friend if they refuse to even consider your point of view? Are they really your friend if the only reason they are your friend is because of the benefit that comes with it?
“Where is your heart, ‘cause I don’t really feel you.
Where is your heart? All I really want is to believe you…”
Lyrics from “Where is your heart” by Kelly Clarkson

No matter what happens, you go to keep going. This isn’t the time to give up. Now is not the time to lay down the proverbial sword. I know you’re tired. You’ve been pushing forward every day. Pushing on past the aches and strain; battling against the seen and unseen.
It would be so easy to give in. Let someone else do it. Why should you keep going when so many others have settled and stopped?
Is it really worth it?
You started on this path for your own reasons and with a firm goal in mind. Remember why you started. Remember what is waiting for you at the end, for there is an end!
It’s okay to take a break. Slow down. Breathe. It’s okay to stumble, fall, and even loose your way for a while – but don’t that be your end.
Pick yourself up and keep going.
