I woke up this morning feeling down in the dumps and sorry for myself but then I stumbled across Sarah’s post and it has lightened my spirits so, obviously I wanted to share it with you guys x

Photo Credit: Dreamcatcher Reality Sometimes life hits us over the head with a frying pan. We are going about our business and then something seemingly out of blue comes and derails our path. Sometimes we just need that reality check in order to be reminded of what we are made of. Conflict is a part…

Reflexology of Your Heart — Couch Talks, Wisdom & A Cup of Joe

Morning guys! I just had to share this wonderful feelgood poem with you this morning; it’s really touching and just made me feel all warm and gooey – hope it does the same for you. Brandi writes some great stuff so please pop over for some of her wisdom and a cup of joe ;O) x

I’m watching It’s a Wonderful Life with my son… — WriteOnFightOn

I had to share this incredibly insightful post with all of you, I hope that you’ll read it and that it will make you think as it did me…………

I’m watching It’s a Wonderful Life with my son, Chase, when in between handfuls of popcorn he asks two questions: Why did people back then only see in black and white? Why did George want to jump off the bridge? Question one was easy to answer but difficult for my 8 year my son to understand.…

👁‍🗨 Abscond He — Ricardo Sexton

I’m sure that many of you already know Richard’s work but, if you don’t I urge you to pay a visit to his site. The poem I’m sharing with you today has incredible power. It is deeply moving but, at the same time, is brutally real…..you’ll see what I mean; I really hope you like it….

He loved this time as it was the last He kissed his wife like fleeing a past He hugged his child as a prodigal son Then, he crossed the street lonesome He climbed a building hearing calls In the roof he raised four solid walls Brick by brick, feeding the sad ideas In his dull […]

The Existential Crisis of Grief — Grief Compass

I came across this article and there was one sentence contained within it which really made me think and has somewhat changed my perspective; I just had to share it with you all

In the last article we addressed the question of why. Which is a massive question. Why did they die? Why him? Why her? The other side of that coin is why not him? Why not her? Why not me?

THE END OF TIME —

The world is in motion Nothing still As the Dance goes on Weaving Gliding Twisting Forming patterns like the crystals of a snowflake Painting pictures Creating stories Dying Birthing Re-creating Is there really a time for everything Or is everything in its time? And is there a difference? Soon, time will be no more The […]

Letters from a Cupid — The Rendezvous Club
