She pulled her knees in close

Wrapped the soft blanket around herself

And took a deep breath

She wasn’t about to start feeling sorry for herself

But the melancholy was palpable

It sat thick and sticky like molasses

Coating every image

And action

There were important things to do

Projects that needed completing

Chores that needed tending

thoughts buzzing around like mosquitos

Trying to garner her attention

She flicked all of it away

And sat motionless

Silently staring at nothing in particular

Knowing it was just a matter of time

For the pendulum to swing the other way

Not knowing when

Or anticipating how

She picked up the remote

Netflixed herself a lighthearted movie

And erased all judgment from the situation

This was just a bit of down time

Some self-nurturing, wound licking, self soothing

Building energy

For whatever the next push was

She had a faint idea what that was maybe suppose to be

But then again

It’s all subject to change at any moment

With absolutely no notice whatsoever


Fortunate or unfortunate as that may be

And so she sat

Eating chocolate muffins

Enjoying the intermittent rain

demanding nothing of herself

Or anyone else for that matter

There’s nothing to complain about

She told herself

Nothing to change

Just live this moment

Just be

that’s all there is to this.


She convinced herself

Nothing else at all

I have always enjoyed reading and writing. Maybe because I have always been on the quiet and reclusive side; which most people may not guess at first glance or if seeing me in a social setting, especially around people I am comfortable with but it’s also not something I have an issue with. I need solitude to recharge. Writing gives me the peace and time to renew that is offered to you for your enjoyment and pleasure as well. I hope. Lol

        Sometimes I feel lost in a sea of people that just want to wallow and complain and mope around bitter and angry. I know it’s not the case.

        I fear how I come across. I not trying to come across as self righteous or perfect. God knows I haven’t got this thing figured out. But I can’t waste this single life putting so much emphasis on trivial things or focusing on things that make me miserable. I’m really just being logical.

        I have epic pity parties. I’m actually due for one pretty soon I think……

        But sometimes the most logical thing to do is just to chill out and get out of your own head. Right?
