Happy Sunday

Happy Sunday, my loves 💜🖤💜
How was your weekend? I had a good one! One of the best I’ve had in a long while. I hope you, too, got a chance to relax and recharge.

Now, for the quote of the week, I chose this one because it’s something that I have to tell myself daily.

“Never be ashamed about being broken because strength is nothing but pain that’s been repaired.” -Trent Shelton

I used to be so ashamed of my past. I was ashamed of my trauma to the point where I let it consume me.

I let it stop me from growing. I let it stop me from living.

I was so rooted in my pain that I stopped seeing the beauty of things.

I was so broken that I couldn’t see those around me who loved me.

I was so focused on “what I wasn’t” that I couldn’t see “what I was.”

I survived.

I made it out.

I’m still healing. That is an ongoing process. And though I may have forgiven, I’ve never forgotten.

And, for me, that’s ok.

We are all broken in some way. I can recognize that in myself.

But, I believe it’s the cracks that make us unique and that make us strong.

I hated being called “strong” because I didn’t feel that way. I didn’t do anything to earn that moniker.

But I realized that just getting up in the morning took strength when all I wanted was to stay there and cry.

And that is enough.

So, please, my loves, be careful with yourself.
And be careful with your heart.

You are STRONG
You are STRONG
You are STRONG

Have a beautiful week, and never let them take your shine because you shine so damn bright. Take care 💜✌🏽

Love Always,


Midnight Fears

You were kind,
When I was broken.

You held my hand,
When I was afraid.

So for you,
I would give you
Every bit of my soul,
Because you showed
me how to live.

And midnight isn’t as scary
With you here,
By my side.

Starry Night

Tonight I looked up
At a starry sky
And wonder if you
Can feel me think of you.

Then the warm breeze
Caresses my cheek
Like you once did,
And I remember it all.

How you held me.
How you kissed me,
How you made my
Fear disappear like
Smoke in the air.

My love,
Though we are apart,
We’ll always share nights
Like this.

Because our love
Lives beyond the moon
And all of her phases.

Our love is spread out
Over the entirety of
The universe.

And there is nothing
That can tear us apart.
