Need a corner to vent?

I was mindlessly scrolling through my Instagram timeline when I noticed some posts which were both mood boosters and drainers. I saw one that was like, ‘You have to force yourself to wake up early, you have to take care of your responsibilities, you have to be honest with yourself, you have to evaluate your priorities. Nobody is going to do it for you, these are your goals and dreams. Everything you want starts and ends with you.’ To be honest, I was logged out at the second ‘You have to’. I’m at a point where my entire body is screaming ‘Do I have to? I’m sick and tired of it all!’

Do the next best thing

As young adults, we often struggle with questions around purpose. What are we here for? What are we supposed to be doing? Why do we feel a void even when things look good on the outside? Why do we change paths when it just doesn’t feel right? What is it about finding purpose that makes us wake up everyday with body aches and all to keep fighting to stay alive?

You’re not alone

In a world of over 7 billion people, it is so easy to feel alone. To have that sickening feeling in your gut that no one can see you. No one can understand what you’re going through. No one knows what you’ve done. No one cares to listen to what you’re dealing with. It’s easy to be in a room full of people and still feel alone.

Writing On The Fly

Hiya!

I hope your 2021 hasn’t been feeling like a version 2 of 2020? Who am I kidding, it sorta feels like it. Only this time, we’re more equipped to face it! (Fingers crossed)

I thought about starting a writing challenge this month, but then I remembered how awful I felt when I couldn’t complete the last one. That was until I stumbled on the quote; “No amount of guilt will solve the past and no amount of anxiety will change the future.”

Live or Leave

I never want you to feel this way,

You know, like you’re deep in a pit and no one even knows you’re there,

Like the grave is a resting place and life is for the restless,

Like you’re speaking but no one is listening,

Like you’re dying and no one is seeing.

I see you.

I hear you.

And it sucks that you feel this way.

I wish you never did,

I wish your smile never set like the sun,

I wish your laughter didn’t seem like the fading sound of distant waves,

I wish your heart wasn’t hard from all the broken pieces that couldn’t be glued back together.

I wish I could take your pain away,

Absorb the pain like a sponge until you’re free from it,

I wish you didn’t know what it meant to walk under a dark cloud even when the sun was shining overhead,

I wish you didn’t know what it felt like to cry ‘Eli Eli Lama Sabachtani!’

That moment where you begin to question the efficacy of the words ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you,’ while reality screams otherwise.

But you have to feel these things,

For that’s how you’ll know how to comfort others who feel same.

If I hadn’t gone through them, I wouldn’t know what to say to you.

So to answer your question, live or leave? I think it’s best we live ready to leave when our appointment with death comes, as it’s appointed for men once to die, but after this the judgment (Heb 9:27).

So live, my darling! For life is already fleeting as it it seems.

Love,

M.❤️

November Writing Challenge- Prompt 5

Hiya!

Welcome to Day 5 of the writing challenge.

No Single Truth

Today’s topic is a little philosophical. Matter of fact, it cuts through theology, philosophy and psychology (Yup! Had to do a little reading on that). It’s on the concept of ‘no single truth’. Some argue that having a single truth, means the rest are false. But then again how can they be false if those who follow it claim it’s true? Well, I’m not gonna bore you with all that.

Here’s what I think:

We are all trying to seek the truth and meaning of our existence. I hope your truth is absolute, and I hope it charts your way and I hope it gives you life. -M.

We all need a navigation system to get through life. Without it, we’d be lost. That’s why Jesus assures us that He’s the way, truth and life. This is the truth we believe, the path we follow to the father and inevitably the abundant life we’re called to have. Isn’t that just beautiful?! ❤️

Here’s one truth you must know to be true—God loves you just the way you are. And He loves to have a relationship with anyone who would accept Him. ❤️

Love,

M.❤️
