Where My Heart SINGS

Creative words make for creative experiences. I tell stories, I write poems, I create lyrics. I sing with my heart. When my pen meets the paper….A new world begins. Welcome to My Poetry Corner.

POETRY IS WHEN AN EMOTION HAS FOUND ITS THOUGHT AND THE THOUGHTS HAVE FOUND WORDS

Entry for Today:

JANUARY 6TH, 2019

Another night slowly passing with thoughts of you running through my mind. 

When I think about what my life could've been, where I'd be right now?!?!??? 

You cure my insomnia taking me to a place, a place of piece, serenity, joy, wholeness, purity. 

You calm my soul, ease my spirit 

Your words, your touch, penetrates my existence 

A universal soul snatch To a galaxy beyond your 
deepest satisfactions 

The rarest form of air I've ever breathed

 A passion so raw and uncut 

A shift in the skies and the stars align because when our souls are intertwined 

Time stops, lakes freeze, and showers of bright lights fill the skies

-Yello Diamond

Lakes, Photos, Beautiful Smiles & Self – Appreciation

Omg we had not taken professional photos since my daughter Cassidy was a newborn. I was so extremely excited about getting these photos done. This was a combination shoot for family growth, Denim’s 13th and Cassidy’s 5th birthdays.

Back then, most of the time hubbs and I did the shopping. It use to take too long getting 4 kids ready to go to the mall for 30 mins. This time we got to go shopping as a whole. 😁 I greatly enjoyed preparing for this photoshoot.

We were looking too cute in our matching outfits.😍 We hardly ever match unless it’s a family event. We picked out this beautiful park in Jacksonville called The Jacksonville Arboretum & Gardens. We had a blast, this place was filled with so much greenery. The lakes and bridges throughout the park were gorgeous. There were plenty trees so It gave a very picturesque nature vibe.

The lakes and bridges throughout the park were gorgeous 😍

The kids had such a great time. My photographer was able to catch so many precious moments. I loved loved loved every minute…….

Until we got them back of course. 😑 {key in the dramatic music…bumbumbuuuuuum…did it help with the suspense?? No…ok nevermind….it felt like it went}

Anyway…

Let me start with the fact that I truly loved how the photos came out, they were fabulous and my photographer did her thang! 

Now on a personal note…

We as people are always our own worst critic. When I laid eyes on these photos I think I picked out every negative thing on myself that I could think of. I had a problem with the way I looked in every photo. My face/cheeks, my belly, my butt, my arms, my boobs, my legs EVERYTHING. I hated how I saw myself. Although I knew the pictures were amazing, my viewpoint of myself was horrible.

Since having VSG I have come to appreciate these memories. They remind me everyday to never let myself go to that negative mental space again. Over the course of this journey I have learned to love this skin that I’m in.

So after I got over it 🤦🏽‍♀️ I went on to order an extra large canvas to display my gorgeous family.

No matter what trials I go through I will always remain grateful that I had these moments to experience. These moments helped to create this amazingly beautiful woman I am learning about daily.

If given the opportunity to meet one’s past self, I would hug her and tell her “you got this, It will get better”. The amount of pain hidden behind the smile was crazy.
