Earth

Thank you,

For being the foundation under my feet

.. Even when I feel like I’m buried six feet deep.

Thank you,

For always providing the resources I need

.. One day, a future generation may not be so lucky ūüė¶

Thank you,

For being so beautiful,

For always listening,

and even sometimes responding.

The universe works in mysterious ways, but I know that it’s always on my side.

^^This thought came to me as I was ending my meditation today. It felt great to say “I’m back.” For awhile I was struggling with depression- something we ALL go through every now and again. My anxiety was through the roof. It was terrible. I had discontinued my normal routine of exercise/yoga/meditation and relaxation for awhile due to some major changes in my life. I knew that if I returned to this routine I could be happy again, but it was hard to even find the motivation to actually do it. At first, I started back up with the meditation. But before every meditation I would think to my higher self “Please just help me. Please guide me in the right direction. Please give me some sort of insight on what to do.” I think I was too eager at first, I desired that insight and creativity that once came to me during each meditation so badly, that it was overpowering. Finally, I took a step back and let the magic happen. I’m starting to feel okay again.

It’s so easy to lose yourself, but¬†it can be very hard to find yourself again. But it IS possible, and it’s important to remember that, no matter how impossible it may seem at the time.. no matter how alone you may feel. Even though people tell you you’re not alone, there’s nothing one can say to take you out of the negative mindset that you feel trapped in. Just keep telling¬†yourself that you do not have to stay in that dark place. You don’t have to stay, but it’s up to you to find your way out. Days may seem like weeks, weeks feel like an eternity.. just stay calm, and try to stay positive. Those positive thoughts will eventually add up, and the positive activities will eventually lead you back to your happiness. Everything will fall into place, no matter how much you want to believe they won’t this time, and you just want to give up.. don’t. When you give up, you lose. There are always going to be ups and downs, when your down it’s important you remember how to get back up. Take a look at the people/things/world around you. Everyone/Everything has a struggle, only those who are strong enough actually get through it. You are strong enough. You are human, the only thing that makes you weak is your own ego telling you that you can’t do it. No matter how weak you feel, continue to push yourself to go that extra mile. In the end, you’ll be glad you did. There’s always something to look forward to, even if it’s something as simple as the sun shining through your window. Think about the way it makes you feel, and hold on to that.

Essentials

Her drive was like a peppermint latte, stimulating to say the least.

She had a smile that could grab you’re attention anywhere.. like the scent of rosemary caught in a breeze.

But the most beautiful characteristic of all was her voice that could soothe, like lavender in a midnight dream.

“Trying hard not to get into trouble, but I’ve got a war in my mind”

All I want to do right now is run

Straight through the abyss of cotton candy skies and fields of wildflowers.

Music pounding in my ears, vibrating through my body, and speaking to my soul.

Maybe then I will stop thinking so much.

Maybe then I’ll be able to focus on what’s real.

The candle and the flame

At first you have the candle. Solid, cold, hard, homogeneous.

Then you have the flame. Warm, bright, constantly changing in size and shape.

The flame touches the wick of the candle, and the two come together as one.

Express Yourself

water

 As I sat on the snowy root of the tree, grounded

I observed the stillness and the silence.

As the colorful wind passed through

The breeze gave life to the nature around me.

The water played a tune as I took a deep breath in, and let it out

Sometimes

Sometimes, you have to open your windows and let the crisp, fresh air roll in.

Sometimes, you have to sit in front of the window and feel the cool breeze on your face.

Let the sensation take over your body.

Take a deep breath in of that fresh air, and slowly let it all out.

Relax.

Sometimes, you have to take time out of your day to be one with nature.

Listen to the birds chirp all around..

Listen to the life outside your window..

While everything else¬†remains still…¬†serene… and beautiful, at the same time.

Sometimes, nature can heal you in an instant.

Just open your window, and you’ll feel it.
