A Blank Sheet Of Paper – A Poem

ww-paper

A blank sheet of paper.
Oh, the possibilities
That lie within my mind.
I’m afraid to write
For once the ink is applied,
There is no going back.

So I think this poem needs a little bit of an explanation. I wrote this poem way back in June. I attempted to write letters to friends but never did because I didn’t know what to say, how to say it, or why I wanted to write them in the first place. This poem came out of the struggle of not being able to make up my mind. :) Anyway, that’s the story! Stay happy. :)

Blue – A Poem

Hey, everyone! So I’m starting a new series on my blog called Writing Wednesdays. Just like with the Motivation Monday posts, I will post a Writing Wednesday post once or twice a month. Anyway, enjoy!

Blue
Like the
Sea that stretches
Out as far as I can see.
I long to reach the
End where the
Water stops.
The blue
Water
Breathing
Steadily in and
Out, never ending.
It is the home
For many
And
The
Comfort
For me. I can
Not explain how
I long to see the end
Of the clear, blue
Sea. The waves
Move in and
Out. I sit
And
Watch
The world
Around me,
A beautiful shade
Of blue.

October Favorites

Hey, everyone! October has (almost) ended and I couldn’t be happier because that means that we are one month closer to Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years! Yay! This month has been super busy but I have loved every little bit of it. I took some big steps and stretched myself by doing things I didn’t think I would ever do (like going to my FIRST DANCE). This month also included my 2-year blogiversary! (read more about that here)

  1. Blackout poetry – Blackout poetry was something that I found on Pinterest and wanted to try. It is relaxing to me somehow and I like making new things out of older ones so this is perfect.
  2. Getting 200 followers! – I reached 200! This makes me so happy that there are so many people that are willing to read my blog posts and take the time to listen. Many many thanks to all of you!
  3. My first homecoming dance! – I went to my very first dance a couple of weeks ago and I am SO glad I went! I was invited by two friends of mine to go with a bigger group to dinner the day of the dance but when the reservations were messed up, we decided to go together. We were also able to convince three more of our friends to go with us. We had a blast! My tip for your first dance: don’t make any kind of expectations beforehand. This helped me to relax and be flexible.
  4. Gigi’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcake – There are cookies. There are cookie doughs. And there are cupcakes. But this, this is heaven or really close to it. If there is a Gigi’s Cupcakery close to you, you NEED to try this!
  5. Posh Thomas Kinkade Painter Of Light Coloring Book – My grandparents gave this coloring book to me and I think it’s really cool. I like seeing the original picture with the coloring page.
  6. Celebrating my 2-year blogiversary! – My mother was AMAZING and cleared out her whole day just to make me a pie and decorate the kitchen for my blogiversary. (read more about my journey here)
  7. Sundress by Landon Austin (song)
  8. Alone by Marshmello (song)
  9. Yesterday’s Song by Hunter Hayes (song)
  10. 1 John 2:2 – “He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.”

How was your October? Do you have any plans for November?
