Drawing Inspiration


I’ve been really drowning myself into my other blog. It’s based on something that I think about daily and I’m so happy to share with others my “obsessions”. Part of my inspiration for that blog comes from magazines. I love flipping the pages, smelling the perfume, cutting out pictures – some things technology could never replace. Yes, I may be able to have a virtual pin board like Pinterest or Polyvore, but they don’t offer me perfume samples or little cards that I can keep at bay with 5 colors that go well with gray.

With this blog, I like to share life experiences and that comes with everyday things. My struggle to keep fit, eat healthy, share recipes, rant and offer inspiration where I can.

Blogging is very personal. If you don’t have many followers, you are opening up yourself to a few that you may not even know. A few who may know more about you than your family. But it is also something that you want to be of substance, not always a ramble that fails to draw in readers and keep them interested and return to your blog or even subscribe. I wish I had more subscribers but I have this reservation about really putting my blog out there – basically pushing it down people’s throats. I like that people read one post and find me interesting enough to subscribe and see what I have to offer in the future.

patienceI’ve said it before and I’ll say it again,  I don’t feel like I should post just because. If I take a while to post in between, trust me I’ve started and deleted posts and just left it until I felt like I had something worth sharing. To push posts constantly that lack substance will only get people uninterested.

use your mindI sometimes find it amazing that I can sit and watch the world go by but I could never retain information long enough to put it in a post. My mind is like 10 trains going through a squiggly maze and I have to try to pick one train and focus on where I want to go with it. With that being said, I love notebooks. Writing my thoughts or a quick blog post on my phone is sometimes very important because I become so overwhelmed by my thoughts and you can also see y passion/excitement when I do a quick post. It’s like I’m screaming “I HAD TO SHARE THIS WITH YOU!”. And I’m kind of feeling like I have to share with you now.

Hopefully I can keep on this role of being inspired and maybe keep you inspired as well.

Courage


I made the promise to myself to be more dedicated to my blogs this year. Get a camera, be more open, write at least one post a week, you get the idea. It’s what I like to do so I should become more committed to it. This morning I got all the inspiration I needed after watching this talk. I will try my best but I also write a lot based on what I’m feeling so we’ll see how this goes.

I don’t think anything can calm me as much as writing does. Be it a blog post, poem or even a post-it reminder – I love to see my thoughts on paper. With that said, feel free to share your thoughts on this poem I just wrote (which is why it is yet to be titled hence the title of this post) and the pic below which was taken from a suite in a lovely hotel called The Crane in the south of Barbados.

You know that feeling deep down inside,
A numbing pain you cannot hide.
A hurt so great you cannot think,
Speechless and unmoved with every blink.
The love is thick.
The love is pure.
The love remains even when sore.
The love heals while it mends,
It’s the only cure on which one can depend.
The love hurts sometimes right to the core,
The love forgives and comes back for more.
Say what you will it won’t count
The love endures for those who have no doubts.
Let go of the pain and let love in,
Share, but the love is more about giving.
It is for those who have no boundaries,
Or set limitations on it’s varying degrees.
It is blind and leads with faith
It waits for all to find the way.
