SUN

The sun shines in the darkest places
bringing light to unknown spaces.

DRIFTING TO DREAMLAND – REFLECTING ON MY DAY

Foggy head, heavy eyes, tired body,

I’m about to drift into dreamland after a long day.

I arose this morning, and through each moment, I lived.

Each moment of conscious thought, each moment of negativity, each moment of doubt.

Each moment of laughter, each moment of love, each moment of pain, each moment of feeling human.

I’M BROKE AND ILL, AND ALL I WANNA DO IS WRITE

Being ‘sick’ doesn’t define you, except when it does. When you can’t work because of health issues.

Being poor shapes your life. Yes, I said it. Money is oh-so-powerful. I don’t even mean a lot of money, I just mean a livable wage. A simple life is what I crave.

Writing calls to me for whatever reason. It’s the easiest thing for me to do, whether I’m feeling good or terrible (mostly the latter).

I just wish I could write and little magical fairies would make money appear. How nice would that be? Continue reading “I’M BROKE AND ILL, AND ALL I WANNA DO IS WRITE”

WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR TIME?

I feel like everyone is short on time; there’s only 24 hours in the day. Around 8 of them are already allotted for sleeping and then other portions are taken throughout the day for necessary stuff like eating and bathroom breaks.

If you’re out and about, there’s typically lots of waiting at red lights, in traffic, waiting in lines.

What do you do with the extra time?

What do you do when you’re waiting in line? Continue reading “WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR TIME?”

IN MANAGING YOUR DEPRESSION, PRODUCTIVITY IS KEY

So we all know that depression and productivity don’t exactly go hand in hand. I laugh a little inside because I know how little I’ve been able to accomplish while battling crippling depression for the past decade. (It’s not funny, but sometimes I can laugh at how pathetic I feel I am. Sometimes.)

This past week, I was the most productive I’ve been in a long time… I literally had something planned every day of the week, which is huge for me, someone unable to work. I had a couple pressing errands to complete that I finally managed to do, a doctor appointment (hence my last blog post and poem titled “YOU CAN’T BANDAGE MY PAIN”) and I have to say, it feels AMAZING.

(Besides the hopelessness after leaving my doctor. Maybe I’ll talk more about that later…) Continue reading “IN MANAGING YOUR DEPRESSION, PRODUCTIVITY IS KEY”

KEEPING THIS HAPPINESS

It’s one of those rare days where my mood is good;

I could almost say I’m… happy?

Some different things I did today, I actually dragged myself out of bed at a more reasonable hour,

ventured out into the world and did some productive things! Continue reading “KEEPING THIS HAPPINESS”
