Waiting for the storm to pass

Isn’t that what we all do sometimes? Sit and wait, while the snow flurries around us, waiting. Just waiting. And once the storm has settled, whether it’s in our minds, our hearts or our environment, we emerge and begin to make sense of it all.

Sometimes there is no sense to make of things, though. Sometimes these things happen because of factors outside our control or because someone else has willed it this way. So, what do we do? Brave the storm, deal with whatever it is swirling around us, attempt to cauterise and heal or do we wait? Just wait.

Hidden in plain sight

Sometimes, when people say they’re ok, they aren’t. When they’re asking you if you’re ok…..what they’re really asking you is “ask me if I’m ok.” They’re looking for someone to realise that they’re hurting and reach out to them. It could just be a conversation or a joke shared to break the ice. It could be a kiss, an affirmation of love and being wanted. Don’t lose sight of them; these people who are hidden in plain sight. Reach out and show them that they’re loved.

As the leaves fall

 Autumn is a funny time of the year; sometimes I struggle to reconcile it. Part of me mourns the summer that has gone and anticipates the winter to come. The other part of me is optimistic and looks forward to warmth once more. It’s a transition season; a time of change. Change is coming, it’s how I deal with it that matters. 

I’ve experienced some changes recently that while I initially feared them, I can see a positive and rewarding way forward. Change is neither good nor bad, it’s just …. different and we can all adapt to different ❤️

I’m watching you

Lure me into your web; spin your tales around my mind. Captivate me with your seductions. Pierce me with your venom and wait for me to succumb. But I see everything you do. I know who you are. I allow myself to be lured, but I wait for my moment. Because I’m watching you and I know your tricks.
