Why I love Doctor Who📝

Emotions equal strength 💕 A creative piece.

I’m strong in myself. I tell myself that everyday. In between working through my self help books I’m writing blogs, creating new poems, new writing, new ideas, healing myself emotionally by letting the emotions out and not being afraid to shadow them to the outside world through writing.

Misconceptions of the borderline in relationships 💕

The borderline personality doesn’t refuse to let go, they will let go of someone that doesn’t return the love they give to others.

The lonely tree 🌳

How many leaves does the tree lose before we notice it’s bare? Is it crying or is it smiling? Is it turning over a new leaf? How far does the trees roots twist into the soil of the earth? How much life does the tree have? Is it breathing in oxygen? How many times has […]

Seasonal emotions 🖤💔

Winter: Harsh, cold & glacial and more night than day.  Fire logs and igloos, happiness at bay. Autumn: Soft crumpled leaves, brown and green. Rustling in linear with the wind, aggression is keen. Summer: Sunlight and crystalline waters, a million rays of heat, invisible but loving, love is at peak. Spring: Flowers and daffodils and […]

Decisions decisions decisions

I often look back at the career choices I’ve made in the past. The subjects I chose to study. The health choices I made. I don’t regret taking a different path to what I should have taken because I wouldn’t have the awareness or the abilities I do have now and what I want to […]
