I want to accomplish my goals and get the fuck out of this country. People in this country don’t know how to live. Just exist.

Height of Violence by Joshua ( @american.promises )
.
i wanted to peel off
at the height of violence
felt the lords of all creation
watching over me from their perch
and i knew theyd strike me down
for turning tail and running from
what they wanted me to finish
ever felt a weight such as that
measuring yourself next to
the expectations from the gods
all the exits
are not exits

It's funny how one look at the wrong angle makes us suddenly visualize our image poorly.
Maybe it's acne, maybe it's weight, maybe it's how our favorite dress now doesn't fit.
But mentally we think, maybe I'm not good enough, maybe I'm too fat, maybe I'm the problem.
We begin saying, "If only I could change this or that then I'd be pretty..."
So then what do we see in our reflection?
Our friends see our perfect hair or our flawless smile.
We see freckles that are too dark and acne scars that won't fade or stretch marks screaming how we need to hide our pain.
But where did this pain come from?
Why do we only see the imperfections and everyone else sees our beauty?
¬
"Body" thoughts.
-E.M.

Words are powerful tools! The spoken word, the written word and the words we hear and read. With and without context a phrase or a sentence can have completely different meanings. It can effect the receiver and provoke all kinds of emotions.

I love how empowering writing can be, even if you don't share it with anyone else. Why do you love to write?

If you're looking for a way write every day have a go at this! 365 days of prompts and challenges with the help of an amazing book, I will be sharing every page with you every day. Its full of fun ideas and doodles to keep you writing every single day for an entire year!

I'll be pairing these ideas, prints and quotes with quotes and inspirational photos I find. Also bonus prompts & challenges from myself and hopefully with input and ideas from you too, we can do this together! We write because we have to 🙋

In order to survive I chose to cut my father out of my life.

The risk of bullying, stigma and judgement was far to high a cost to pay.

Perhaps I was too hasty, but I can’t say for sure I would do differently next time.

I am glad that I rekindled our relationship prior to his passing however. School was over and I was then an adult and able to better cope with it all.

I am not ALWAYS positive.
It maybe very much in my nature to be,
And it may seem like my automatic go-to.
But it is a bitch and a half to maintain.
My thoughts spiral and all I can do is watch.
Watch myself shatter and be sucked into nothingness.
It is not easy.
And it isn’t supposed to be.
So I must be patient with myself.
Understanding the turmoil within,
I must remain calm.
Seeing the humanness in my existence,
I must be compassionate.
Only then can I have the satisfaction
Of watching me blossom.

📸 @laroue He wakes up and puts on the bothersome mask. The mask is a burden. It weighs him down. Nonetheless, day after day, he repeats this ritual without any thought or hesitation in his actions. Over time, life becomes too difficult. It would be easier for him to not live anymore. Some say that this is selfish of him. Those who say this cannot fathom the pain that the mask causes. Some deny the existence of the mask entirely, arguing that there is no logical reason for someone to feel this way. Some say that he should simply take the mask off or question the validity of the mask's self-destructive powers. What they don't see is that the mask is synonymous with life itself. For him, life is the mask and the mask is life. Life is rage and depression. Life is chaotic and out of his control. This mask is a mirror, reflecting everyone else's image but his own. Why can he not see his reflection? Who is he? He feels so empty not knowing himself. For those closest to him, his mirror reflects their image. They are the problem. They are the ones who face the wrath of the boy wearing the mirror mask. He has known for quite some time now that he is different from others. He's more sensitive, more emotionally reactive than most. Finally, he talks to somebody whose life is dedicated to helping people understand their mask and how to manage life while wearing it. He did tons of introspection, talking to a therapist, and research on his own, but alas, the mask was still life and life was still the mask. Tired of nothing changing, he took the mask off and turned the mirror to face inward. As he stared at his reflection, he became uncomfortable with himself. The mirror mask began to crack. Then, he finally saw it. He finally understood. Although it took plenty of help and resources for him to face the truth, he ultimately discovered on his own, as he should, that this mask was a facade. It hid how he really felt, something so painful that it was hard for him to talk about. Until now. Suddenly, it became clear why the mirror mask became cracked in the first place.

Homemade Filipino food for my future brother in law’s birthday; lumpia, pansit and siopao. Now to kickback, relax and sip on halo-halo. (A cross between bubble tea and heaven). The purple ice cream is ube, also known as purple yam and I promise you it’s every bit of scrumptious.

“He died”
feels like a lie.
Dead,
Doesn’t do justice
to streaking off Earth
like a bullet blasting through steel
melting every piece of us ever warmed
by him.
He didn’t die
He left us shell shocked and stinging
With every empty space where his light still gets in. 🖤
Dedicated to my powerhouses who’ve lost someone extra special 🖤#griefpoetry #poems #griefandloss #emotionalhealing #writingtherapy

A veces me siento mala persona cuando no muestro ni tengo interés en algo que al resto de personas les encanta por un motivo u otro. Me siento culpable porque creo que quizá me estoy perdiendo algo maravilloso que a simple vista me resulta aburrido o, simplemente, sin sentido.
Es una sensación de no-encajar amarga pero, asimismo, reconfortante. No es que considere que lo que le gusta a la mayoría sea peor que lo que a mí me guste, en absoluto. Simplemente me doy cuenta de que o bien le quito la gracia a las cosas inconscientemente o que soy demasiado exigente con mi tiempo de ocio: si algo no va a aportarme bagaje cultural/intelectual, mi cerebro desconecta automáticamente.
Por no mencionar la sensación de absurdismo cuando algo es extremadamente simple y gusta precisamente por eso. Escapa a mi lógica, la misma que me acorrala y me obliga a interesarme por cosas raras o cuyo interés apenas cuenta con la participación de una minoría.

much like life, water can be calm and pleasant or unpredictable and unforgiving.
.
Recently the waters have been rough and tough to navigate. The past few months have had days filled with anxiety so I kept myself preoccupied and attempted to look ahead for signs of still waters. Serene waters are now in sight, and I'm forever grateful.
.
Tides change and storms come and go. Here's hoping the damage is minimal. That you can rebuild a stronger future. Then, soon, you can sit again in awe of the beauty that is the water.

My father was an extremely intelligent man, but unfortunately he was using drugs to escape his past.

Over time, they ate away at his ability to cope with every day life.

I hadn’t been biking long, maybe ten minutes at most.  Just enough time to work up a decent sweat.  My rhythm was flawless that morning, every stroke was on point.  I remember thinking that today I would break my record time.  This spurred me to pedal harder.  That was the last clear thought that I can remember from that morning.  After that, life dissolved into a chaotic mess.
The steel shark came out of nowhere.  No brakes, no warning before collision.  It seems that destiny aligned our paths to cross.  The torpedo was in the water, and impact was immanent.  By police estimates the car was traveling in the realm of 45-50mph.  I never saw it coming.  The blow was instantaneous.  The swing of a baseball bat against the back of my head.  The perfect crack of a long drive and I was out.  It happened that fast. “Don’t get up!  Stay down, they’re on the way.  God there’s so much blood.  Don’t die on me”. These strange sounds rained down on me from above.  I strained to see a gray wash of colors that resembled the silhouette of a face kneeling over me.  It was too dark to clearly make anything out.  My cognitions were shot, my brain desperately trying to reboot after a fatal system error.  I noticed his head turning back and forth shouting to someone.  His movements were a watercolor painting brought to life.  My sight was beginning to dim.  I could feel it; the lights were going out.  Here I went, my consciousness slipping away.  Desperately I clung to this stranger’s face.  No god, please no. I didn’t want to go back into the black.  What if I never came back?  My body lay there limp on the warm asphalt.  A war for life was raging inside the pupils of my eyes.  I continued to fade.  My strength dissipating.  I lost grip and into the black I fell.

Oh, Christ, Here We Go Again by Joshua ( @american.promises )
.
the great american nowhere
the one with the old country roads
and the bodies lining them
populated by the unsteady and the struggling
laughing stocks at country clubs
the future is only uncertain
the pressures of too many prophets
relaying old wives tales
i'll tell you what i think -
i think if Christ came back
the church would string him up again
theres more money in his death
than there is in his life

Is your tank empty? • I’ve often put myself last for everything. Six years of running at 170% left me exhausted and resentful. I worked and worked and worked and never felt fulfilled. Sure I’d get little boosts here and there but it was never fully satisfying and I could never figure out why. I blamed my situation, my line of work; hell I had a list of things to blame except myself. I had been spinning my wheels to this idea of what would make me happy instead of just being. I knew something had a change, but being a workaholic is a hard cycle to break. So, I got this lovely desk plant and named her Georgia.🌱 I told myself that if I can’t manage to keep Georgia alive, a plant that needs hardly any sunlight and maybe watering twice a week- there’s no way in hell that I’m taking care of myself. I was good.. at first. But a couple months went by and I could see Georgia was dying but didn’t do anything about it. Finally, my co-worker threatened to take my poor plant that I’d been neglecting. • I looked at it everyday, but did nothing. It wasn’t because I didn’t care, it just didn’t seem like a priority. Do you ever look at yourself in the mirror and do nothing? I want to remind you that you are a priority. Your GROWTH is a priority. If you can’t take 60 seconds to water a plant, how many seconds are you giving back to yourself?

But I’ll be brave because I truly believe it’s important to share the #BTS of this writing retreat journey. There isn’t enough of it out there, especially on social media. And because for far too long I’ve woken up with this conviction to share what I’ve learned about writing, nature and spirituality. While it may feel like each is sectioned off, they are in fact very connected. I feel so confident about what I want to share with you on these retreats because I’ve shared it with strangers while traveling, former students I used to teach at Rutgers, friends, family and former mentees. Each time confirming that I have something to contribute. It only encourages me to level up. So thank you again to all of you who have already bought your tickets. I cannot wait to share where I hike to gain clarity and how I write to get back in touch with myself. 🙏🏽🌿✍🏽 #outdoorwritingretreats 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽

There’s always this overwhelming feeling where we look at our lives and compare it to our friends and their social media posts and we are overcome with this fear that we aren’t anywhere near where we really want to be. We keep chasing these insane ideal visions we have until we are consumed with sadness when we feel we aren’t good enough. It is important to understand that we all have our timelines and we should be tackling our growth based on our own pace. So this is a reminder for everyone of us to slow down and enjoy the stages and phases we go through as we will be moving forward in life and will not be going thru the same phase twice. .
