What was your purpose for waking up today?

"If I told you how I got this way... you would marvel that I got up today." 


You can't forget to take out the trash

"When you're lost and you need to find yourself... You have to de-clutter. Throw out all the garbage taking up space in your life. You're there. You're just hidden under years of emotional hoarding."


Don't let negativity bring you down

"I have reached a point of no return. I will not put up with negativity from others in any shape or form. I cannot handle people bashing what they disagree with or hate. My empathetic nature and deep seated anxiety absorbs the emotions around me. Be they good or bad... and I can no longer handle anything that darkens my spirit. If it's on the Radio or TV, it gets turned off. If it's on the Internet, I scroll past. If it's out of a humans mouth, I distance myself. I choose to promote what I love. To absorb love. To become love... and thereby project love."


Who would you ride out a storm for?

"I acted a besotted fool. Even now, years later, I look back with focused eyes, and I see the destruction that I willingly took on. I was warned to leave. To batten down the hatches and walk away. Yet I chose to stay, and to endure...to ride out the storm in you."


Love will heal all your wounds

"We seek the 'temporary' to stitch together our wounds, and 'salves' to cover our hurting hearts. But the only bandage that can stop pain...is Love. Love is the universal medicine."


Sometimes happiness can only be found through suffering

"She deserves better than anything she has suffered through, and it took a lot of 'suffering through,'...before she accepted better, and that's okay. She made it."


The best thing you can do for yourself is to be YOU
Photo: Instagram: alfa.poet

"I gave up worrying what others think about me...I lived in the shadows, with an overwhelming need to shine FOR them...It got me NOWHERE. It censored my life; My gifts and talents. If you have to give 'pause' while expressing who you are, then most likely, you are limiting yourself because of others opinions. Shake off the shackles. Set yourself free. Be you. The world needs you."


There's a viking out there for everyone

"I never needed a Man. I needed a Viking. I needed someone who wasn't afraid of my strengths or by my needs. I chose wrong in the past. I thought I had to settle for laid-back... Mild mannered. Easy going. I thought I had to find someone who could put up with my hunger for life. But I was so damn wrong... I needed a Viking. I needed someone who would admire all the things about me that tepid men were intimidated by."


Keep your garden watered, and someone is sure to notice it

"Fate controls who walks into your life. We might not wield the initial spark... But we choose whether or not to ignite. We choose who we let stay and who we allow to go. We ultimately choose who we cling to. But make not mistake: The caretaking of the fire is always in OUR hands -- and careless handling has a way of creating raging forest fires."
