My World

In his eyes my world lies.

In the skies my dreams hide.

Now I see the beauty he beams.

With his touch the world shines.

Flowers bloom, rivers flow, while birds sing melodies of his praise.

With my loves warmth I evolve, all my fears he dissolves.

Time moves forward as hearts pause; his world become mine as we collide.

In his eyes my world lies.ūüíó

Communicating Love

Lost in your thoughts I lie awake at night recollecting our memories together. The sky whispers strength to slow the rapid beating of my heart as the moon radiates your presence. The stars give reassuring hugs of your return while the wind dries the tears dripping from my eyes. In the darkness of the night, your smile and laugh lift the clouds of stress. Pain becomes strength and fear becomes faith as your words of encouragement echo in my ears. Though miles away, a beloved may stay, trust will remain to communicate love your way. ‪

Inspiration: Love, Listen, Learn.

 

A Step Away from Mom

Dear Mother of Mine,

Standing here today where you stood years before me I realize we are both one. Who am I today is all connected to your past, present, and future. With the grace of time, I have grown out of your shadow and am now strong enough to walk side by side with you.

For every tear life has bestowed upon you, I promise to gift you a smile from my collection. I promise to be the strength of your weakening hands and the medicine to all your wounds. I promise to shield you from life’s problems and guard you from pain. I promise to be patient with my loved ones and to guide them to make the right decisions. I promise to be a better version of myself each day and to pass on tales of your strength to future generations to come.

As I enter adulthood, I promise to sacrifice for my family and children as you continue to do so every day. Thank you for letting me fall and build myself into who I am today, I will always be . . . a step away from mom.

Acceptance

marriagePatience and understanding is needed to accept people and to maintain healthy relationships. Do not allow egos, insecurity, emotions, and problems influence the way you communicate with loved ones. No one has to be a part of your life; respect and appreciate those that love you for being you. Do not take love, time, and relationships for granted. Overtime, you will realize that material objects and the perceptions of society mean nothing. All we will leave behind in this world are memories of our actions and feelings of our presence; make the silence of your absence be felt in the hearts you touch. . .

Inspiration: “What advice will you give someone who has never been in a relationship. What do i need to know,things i need to keep in mind the ups and downs.”

Me Vs. Us

MulanReflection1

Often times we find ourselves in situations of self doubt, questioning our potential and lowering our self worth as each insecurity resurrects into our conscious thoughts.¬†MY expectations, MY feelings, ¬†MY fears, MY needs,¬†MY life,¬†and “ME” often make a minor pebble into a larger than life mountain that is perceived as beyond ones capacity to climb.¬†

When in the “Me” mindset, negative emotions such as: ¬†jealousy, anger, guilt, possessiveness, fear, and greed begin to isolate you from reality. This “Me” mindset is caused by insecurities that an individual has about his or her self and often prevents them from creating/maintaining healthy relationships with others.¬†On the contrary, the “Us” mindset brings forth positive emotions such as: gratitude, love, happiness, patience, and humility which enhances self development. While the “Me” perspective of life keeps you isolated from others, ¬†the “Us” mindset acts as a social magnet and helps us create a healthy self image of our persona.

Relationships are formed when two confident individuals share common interest in life and see a reflection of themselves in the other person. When these two individuals are in sync with each other they are in the “Us” mindset and positive emotions are further enhanced by the experience of sharing joy with one another. However, the minute one partner allows negative emotions to take over their relationship they regress back into the “Me” mindset.

The “Me” mindset is a destructive state of being that creates problems for singles as well as couples. ¬†At various instances in life the “Me” mindset may want to creep up into your life but, always remember that negative emotions only cause isolation.

Our greatest enemy in life is “Me”, learn to understand “Me” and make it an ally.¬†Life gets pretty dull with just “Me”. Learn to step out of “Me” and enjoy the company of “Us”, only then will you realize how it feels to be truly alive…¬†

Inspiration:¬†“Our doubts are traitors,¬†and make us lose the good we oft might win, ¬†by fearing to attempt.‚Ä̬†‚Äē¬†William Shakespeare,¬†Measure for Measure
