What I've seen is that; in love, people often get blind to the things they should see. They often bury the truth with their own hypothetical thoughts. And they forget that self respect matters too. You are the prince of your mother or the princess of your father and you deserve to be treated well. Make sure you don't let people make fun of your feelings; make sure you get the respect you deserve; make sure you don't under the things you should see. Remember, ego shouldn't hurt love and love shouldn't hurt self respect.🌹
💭Life is gonna chew you up... spit you out when it’s done. It’s gonna challenge you... try your patience... test your strength against adversity. And you?? You’ve got work to do. You’ve gotta persevere. Dare to be brave and keep going. Keep your hope and positivity and a little stubbornness. Because life is gonna do other things too. It’s gonna bring you joy and unexpected surprises. It’s gonna grow you and escalate you to a higher level. It’s gonna bring people in to your life that will amaze you and extend the depth of your heart. It’s gonna elevate you to places you never thought you’d go. So this is it. Right now. It’s the time to raise the bar. To push the envelope. To overcome in anticipation of all those good things life has coming too. Let’s do it. Ready?? GO. ~ the insomniac #writersofinstagram#writerswords#inspirationalquotes#positivevibes#positivequotes#selfreflection#strongwomen#writerscommunity#writer
Gaily it takes flight
And in melancholy it bears lead.
Tomorrow, I leave.
my melancholic countenance.
To slow it down, my dear.
The time, to prolong this stay.
To be with you for a moment more,
I shall fill my heart with lead and pray-
If smiles and laughs and
all the sunshine,
I have needs none but for the lead
To prolong this stay.
To slow it down, my dear.
I shall rebel against
The uniformity with which
This clock on the walk ticks.
I have nothing but my melancholy
To cripple these hours flying away.
To stay in your arms.
My dear, to prolong my stay. .

It's funny you know. Thinking about everything. The songs, the memories it just all comes together and takes you back. But thinking about how it started. That got me. And honestly. I've never felt this way. But if the songs that remind me of that time, then it's just a must to listen to. If that perfume is what it takes in order to drift me back up and away to that time. It's all I'm wearing. That time. That time realized I had fallen. Looking at you reminds me of everything I've ever felt all at once. That time.
The travelling constant
On the last day of my trip, I heard someone say, it was a good travel! That's when I realized, we are constantly travelling. In life, in our thoughts and imaginations, we progress. It's true that after a trip we head back home which in our thoughts is still constant but the reality is, the idea of home and the related artifacts have travelled. On returning to a familiar place the sparkle in your eye to find something familiar yet spotting the difference for me is travel. The sudden sense of comfort because of the familiar surrounding yet the initial inhibition of unfamiliarity is to me the true experience of travel. The fact that an old notebook which was once my best friend, now takes me from the feeling of awkwardness to nostalgia to the tiny uneasy thoughts and finally lands me in the comfortable zone where I can laugh at the awkwardness and willingly embrace the unfamiliarity to me is what makes my travel an unique experience.
