“I don’t pay at…

“I don’t pay attention to the world ending,
It has ended for me many times,
and began again in the morning.”

Nayyirah Waheed

Are you?

Coming or going
the slow burn of unknowing
Slack cares to lackluster emotion
Faith fades in time
Who’s right to stay?
In the moment of contentment
coming
can mean life of light
and depth of love
To pull apart the heart
leaving space for hope
Going
for the good of self
The freedom to keep
your pieces as one
Makes for strong choices
Are you
coming or going?

“There You Go Telling Me No Again.” -New Jack City Soundtrack, 1991

Sweaty palms

nervous feet

darting eyes over the crowd

My heart falls as my friend gets grabbed to the dance floor

I’m alone in my own embarrassed stance

A small part in the crowd

Is this look for me?

Turning my head

cool look of nonchalance

slight touch on the arm

he’s standing there

no words

just a hand

lightly touching my sweaty palm

we stay in that spot

the sway of music and a two step

I can still remember the barely there feeling

just enough to stay with me

hands on skinny waste

nervous looks to friends near by

the lifetime of 3 minutes fades into nothing I want to hear

Not enough time to relish in the moment

and he’s gone

30 days..

My cousin and I always seem to find time to have meaningful conversations. I always leave them feeling more motivated and refreshed for what’s to come. Recently we’ve started doing 30 day challenges together. I am a self proclaimed procrastinator, which makes it hard for me to start and keep positive habits. They say it takes 3 weeks to form a habit, so we’ve decided to start small goals that we’d like to work on and stick with it for 30 days. Being roommates helps! We’ve posted a calendar on the fridge and we’re already in our 2nd month.

The first month went pretty well, I must say. My goal was to make my bed everyday when I got up. Now this may sound super trivial but I was never much of a “bed maker”. I’m sure you’ve all said to your parents, “What’s the point in making it when I’m just going to mess it up again later?” 🙂 Yes, we’ve all said it! So, I felt this was a small enough task to practice and I have to say, it made me feel better as the days went by. I started to tidy my room a bit more, making sure everything was in its place. I’m no slob, mind you, but life tends to get in the way of keeping my laundry pile nice and neat on occasion.

As for the oil-pulling, there’s a link below if you’re interested in learning more. I follow this amazing woman, http://heyfranhey.com/ , she’s all about living a natural and healthy lifestyle, which I aspire to more and more every day. Very interesting, open your mind and take a look! Let me know what you think in the comments! Have you ever tried it? If not, would you?

This next 30 days, I’m focusing more on writing. I’m going to write everyday and hopefully post at least 3 times a week. I’m excited about what I come up with and hope I get to share more experiences with my growing audience. I appreciate the growth process. This is why we’re all here, right? To peak into each other’s minds a little..or a lot? Stay on this journey with me guys! More good things to come!
