Witness protection

As the nerves slowly take over and I can no longer function

I concentrate to keep my body from revolting

It takes everything not to scream and run for the door

My mind begins to wander with a million what if disaster scenarios

And I am brought back to myself

my fears washed away when my eyes meet those familiar eyes

I am blessed with the all reassuring smile

that confirms everything will be okay

I can’t stand me

halloween

I can’t me…..

when my ego runs wild, doing it’s best to convince me of all the ways I am broken, lost, damage, no good, not worthy.  Feeding my fears, insecurity by insecurity.  Unrelentless judgment (of everyone and everything) Ridicule.  Shame and guilt.  She’s can be cruel and heartless.  The constant reminders of all the reasons why I must do and be and on and on she goes…

That’s when I can’t stand me.

Reason to believe

wishing

Love

She exists.  Even if she is a faint memory.  She is always there.  Watching.  Waiting.  Wishing.  She is the angel you forget about.  The angel you cling to.  Because at the end of everyday, there are those who love unconditionally.  Those who make the world a better place.  And then there are those who eagerly await your return.  All because of love.  She is there.  She is always there.  Sometimes, you just have to look.

What I have learned from blogging

Book shelf

To see what other bloggers have learned head on over to The Daily Post: Recently Acquired

1. No matter how many times I proof read, I will have at least 1 typo (sorry guys)

2. How much it would grow and change.  I started my blog to explore being a horror/sci fi/fantasy writer.  And yes, I still explore these curiosities and passions, I have found my blog has morphed into a personal exploration of life, self discovery as well as, stretching and growing my ever changing writing style.

3.  How much I enjoy it and how much work it is.  I love reading others blogs and interacting with other bloggers.  However, I didn’t realize how much time and effort I would devote to blogging.

Happy Blogging!
