Sandcastles

sandcastles a poem about love bajezen.blog

 

It was fun for a while , those playful days in the sun
She thought he would be the one to always make her smile
Sand flowed through her fingers
She wanted to build something everlasting
Put her heart and soul into it
An unexpected wave came in and washed it all away
Tried her hardest to salvage the ruins
In the end he wouldn’t stay
Grains of love remained , stuck to heart and stinging her eyes
The remnants of their time together
Memories replaying in her mind
Some people are like sandcastles  
They aren’t meant to stay
You have fun , you cherish the moments
You build a masterpiece only to have it washed away
This is the story of love and life
You play with the fire and get burned 1000 times
Feelings cut you like a knife
This is the story of love and life
Everything is temporary
Not everything is meant to stay
You build a beautiful sandcastle only to have it washed away

affirmations for overwhelm bajezen

 

Surrender to the moment.
Just let it be. Whatever it is.
Don’t force it. Don’t judge it.
Don’t fear it. Just feel it.
Accept it. Just be it. Just Live.

 

 

Sometimes I long for simple days.  The days when all I had to do was concern myself with what I wanted to eat for lunch. Just maybe I miss being a toddler. I envy my daughter sometimes, such a carefree unbridled bundle of energy. Some days as much as I hate to admit it; life is synonymous with overwhelm. We take on everything. We take on far too much until we feel like we have the weight of the entire Universe on our shoulders.
It is safe to say sometimes I think this adulting business can miss me. I just want to be like a toddler and run around in my underwear and do whatever my little heart desires.

 

overwhelm and fear bajezen

 

The bills are due and you are sitting there thinking about tomorrow and all of the things that you have to do. I don’t know about you but I am sick of to do lists. Yes, they keep us organized but they also keep us busy. So busy that we forget that we were not created to do stuff all the time. We were created to be joyful and carefree and to just simply be.

Anyone out there ever had an anxiety attack? I really do not know how to describe it. The walls are closing in. You are trying your best to keep shit together. Keep it all together. I am that kind of woman. I want to do it all and I want to do it all alone. Of course, I know this is not logical but as much as we resist we are all affected by the pressures of daily life at some point.
When I get anxious, I literally forget to breathe. I think most of my anxiousness is brought on by my endless need for mental to-do lists. Things are not how I want them to be or maybe I have so many things I “must do”. My mind is not present and I am trying to live oh so many moments at once.

affirmations for overwhelm

 

All the trivial things you worry about can make u manic. What are you doing? Living for next week next month next year? Or are you beating yourself up for something you did or did not do last year? We often forget that all we ever really have is now. Have you ever been overwhelmed? Truly overwhelmed? During these periods of overwhelm so many mixed emotions can arise. None of them, at least in my case are ever anything good. Self-doubt, fear, shame they all come crashing down like thunderstorms. Even for the strong ones, it can be too much to bear. I strongly believe in the immensely beautiful power of words; so I came up with five affirmations that can help you reset and refocus your mind when you are overwhelmed.
 We all have those days when we feel like the world is against us.

 

 

Sometimes you just need a reminder to think happy thoughts and JUST BREATHE.
