Leaving Stress Behind

Distractions at my job and I am feeling stressed

Venting to a friend

to move from this mess

trying to turn things around

I said all I can say

no compromise as they lack understanding

who made them that way

feeling lost

in a cycle of  nonsense and confusion

saddened by the turn of events

seeking guidance and comfort

from my God above

as he said in his word

in Psalm 138:7

Though I walk in the midst of trouble,

You will revive me..

changing, moving forward

leaving the stress behind and alone

Changing to a life of less complacency

and always thinking towards a better reality

CAPTURING THE MOMENT

I feel like I am in another world, away from the busyness of life, captivating the Continue reading “CAPTURING THE MOMENT”

HAPPINESS

When I was younger, I set up a lot  parameters I needed in my life in order to be fulfilled and happy. Some of the beliefs I had was in order to be happy, I wanted to be married with children, have a wonderful career, a home out in the country and this list of my needs continued throughout my life.
