Sleepless Nights

Here’s another one

Sleepless nights

She can’t get warm

She’s feeling cold

In piles of blankets

Covered head to toe

Wearing black lace and a white tank

Mango oil on worn out legs

She should be sleeping

But she isn’t

Those that know her

Understand she’s fighting

Demons from the past

With all the strength she has

She dreams of a fight she lost long ago

But this time

She whispers

Though no one can hear

“I will win”

“I will win”

“I will win”

Until finally

In her dream

She stands

Wide awake

Covered with everything

But shame

And she knows

She did whatever it took

So she could win

Shelter Lessons

Shelter in Place has taught me some profound lessons.

I tend to learn things the hard way.. but I once do, I learn them well.

It is what it is and it becomes what we make of it.

I am surprised by a handful of things, shocked by a few, overwhelmed by one or two but it’s just part of it.

There’s a Paulo Coelho quote that has always inspired me…. I hope it inspires others as much as it does me.

One lesson I learned was that my body is only mine… I’ve had trainers and spent time and money learning from them and following the plans they have created for me.

But in the end of the day. It was my choice about what I did and what I ate.

My body reflects those choices.

I’ve been training myself the past month.. making mistakes and making strides. It’s my body. It’ll be my body after Shelter.

I’ve learned that things aren’t what they seem and that there are strangers that you didn’t expect.

I’ve learned to step away and let go and see what happens or doesn’t happen.

I’ve learned that I can not hold on to the past when the future is on the edge.

I’ve learned to forgive

I’ve learned to let go of what I had hoped for and accept what is.

I’ve learned not to regret anything … But to live with the lessons.

Life is short.

Make it beautiful.

Another Woman

Another woman

Wrote these words

But this woman

Felt them

Like a slap in the face

A punch in the stomach

She knew the pain

All too well

She wrote her own words

Imagined herself

Walking with the stars in the sky

On a beach late at night

Sharing deep thoughts

Not the shallow ones at all

that’s the way it was

For the another woman

Seems like
