We live in a world where:

Never means 'til I change my mind
Forever means for now
Always means forgotten tomorrow

These absolutes have turned into substitutions for commitment.

So tell me, how is anyone supposed to know when these are being used as absolutes and not as broken promises in the making?

In a world so dead set on conflict, I am radical as I am obsessed with peace.

In a world where beautiful lies are favoured, I am a renegade as I speak truth.

In a world that is so ambivalently complacent with mediocrity, I seek excellence.

Bread and circuses
Smoke and mirrors
Pomp and circumstance

I buy none of it.
I am incongruent with this world.

When I said I love you with intention, this was never subterfuge.

So please believe me, when I say I will forget you with intention, you can count yourself ctrl+alt+deleted from my life.

Hearts were never meant to be trampled on.

To me, it doesn't matter if you live in a house, this doesn't make it a home.

Any 4 walled structure intended for residential use is just somewhere to live. It is a house, or a condo, or a townhouse, or an apartment, but that doesn't make it a home. It makes it a dwelling.

A home is when the light is left on for the last person not yet home for the evening.

A home is when a plate of food is made up for the person who got home late.

A home is a hot cup of tea with a tantalizing and magnetic novel, and a warm, fluffy blanket on a grey and rainy day.

A home is where kind deeds are done, without any ill intention, on a day when nothing can seem
to go right.

A home is a sanctuary that p...

Don't let it get to you. . .
      They think I'm made of steel.

Don't let it get to you. . .
      It matters not that the pain is real.

Don't let it get to you. . .
      Easy to say when it's not you.

Don't let it get to you. . .
      Silent compliance says a lot.

Don't let it get to you. . .
     The words rain like daggers.

Don't let it get to you. . .
     You're the monster if they do.

What could be worse than finding out     
            you're the other woman?

Being the woman who doesn't know
            there is another woman.

   This isn't a level of betrayal I can  
                         reconcile.

Why was my promise to love you the     
     rest of my days as trivial as the  
      promise you made to call me  
                     tomorrow?

      Why was my love expendable?

Why was my love for you your dirty,  
                     little secret?

   Why was it so easy to play house
   with me while making a life with           
                   someone else?

  How could you allows those words     filled with deception to be a comfort

You don't get space in my head anymore

It's time to let you go.

Letting Go doesn't mean loving him less, Letting Go means loving you more.
That is the Alchemy of it all.

If the world ended tomorrow, what would I do today?

I struggle to come up with all these wild and whimsical things of what I would do if I knew this day was my last day on earth.

I struggle because I've been trying to live this way for a while. I need to know at the end of my day that I stayed true to my heart no matter the callousness I met. I need to be in a constant state of letting go, so I can be in a constant state of moving forward. I need peace, above all else, as my top priority.

This is how I live my life fully, with the assumption that tomorrow is never a guarantee.

I do not want any fireworks, nor any formal recognition. I do not want any praise or any people to say, "we nee...

When we look at things in the simplest of terms, we may not always be happy with the reality, but that doesn't change the reality of it.

With technology, it works until it doesn't.
With food, its good until it spoils.
With flowers, they bloom until they wilt.
With darkness, it only exists in the absence of light.
With people, they only say what they mean until they don't mean it anymore.

Sometimes, the simplest of things cause the most tragic heartbreak.

To my Friends South of the Border,

My heart breaks for you. As the death toll rises for the shooting in Law Vegas, I weep.

I weep for the families who lost loved ones.
I weep for friends who have to bury their friends.
I weep for the shattered sense of security the concert goers, undoubtedly, must be experiencing.
I weep for those who get stuck on the 'whys' and 'what ifs'.
I weep for the aftermath; for what will remain unseen to most.

Once the spotlight is flipped onto the next big travesty, there will still be countless people affected by this butterfly effect.

They will be creating a new normal. A new normal is one of the hardest things to create. There will be a reminder here and a ...

To the Daughter I'll Never Know,

I wonder what the eyes I will never see would look like. I wonder what the sound of your laughter that I will never hear would sound like. I wonder what colour the hair I will never get to run my fingers through would feel like. I wonder what the sheer and utter joy of  'a baby's first' would feel like.

I wonder so much about you. A you who isn't even here, has never been, and will never be.

I would want you to know what an amazing great grandmother you had. I would want you to know she is the only reason I know what a mother's love should feel like.

I would want you to know you are my reason d'être and I would want you to know I would protect you from th...

Dear Tired & Weary Wanderer,

I see you.
I see you even when you don't see yourself.
Be still.
Be still even when the skies weep and the oceans roar.
Let go.
Let go even when your heart refuses to accept what your mind already knows.
Love.
Love even when your heart can't take being hurt anymore.  

Lonely and lost wanderer, none of us are walking for each other, but we are also not walking alone.

You are your own sanctuary, come, take refuge here.
