And I sit here, holding my head in my hands. One of those days when life doesn't make sense. Have any of you felt that way? I'm sure you have. What do you do when nothing makes sense? Do you cry? Do you scream? What do you do? I want to know. We're all humans, dealing with our fair share of pain. Right? Right.
As you read this caption, you must be wondering "what's wrong with her?" or "stupid of her to rant like this in front of the whole world." But in the end, you will feel like doing the same one day. Believe me you will. So, I don't want any negative comments on this post asking me to keep my thoughts to myself instead of displaying it out to the whole world. This is just one way of letting others (who won't judge me) know that they're not alone. Any of you struggling with things can text me anytime. And I'll be here.
I don't think this post even makes sense. But oh well.

Excuses are weaknesses within us we empower. Instead of allowing them to excuse us from action, try analyzing where they come from. Is it helping or hibdering you? What is there to be gained? What is the potential experience being missed?

Tried Mister Donut’s Pon de Ring donuts in cookies & cream and glazed and although they have the bouncy mochi-like texture, I didn’t find anything else special about them ☹️ #misterdonut #donut #donuts #donuts🍩 #glazed #glazeddonut #cookiesandcream #dessert #desserts #sweet #sweets #sweettooth #pondering #ponderings

I've had a box of nails in my kitchen drawer for 2 years. The kids constantly get it out and play with it, spilling nails all over the house. Every. single. time I clean, I pick up nails and put them back in the drawer. I pick up nails on my dresser, on the kitchen counter, under the table, between the couch cushions... but you know how you constantly see things out of the corner of your eye, but when you actually need them...-> today I decided to hang up this piece of art Sadie made that I particularly love for some reason. Can't find a damn nail anywhere in my house. I finally went out into my front yard and wondered around until I found one in the dirt. Made me laugh. What is this life?! Never needing what's right in front of us, and when we do, it's nowhere to be found. Got the artwork hung, that's what matters. #kidart #homealone #ponderings

More progress on the new driveway! Why do we drive on parkways and park on driveways? #ponderings #suburbanlife #neighborhoodnews

I took this picture yesterday and called it "duality". Then I got thinking, and writing (the thoughts more so than a poem). >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
We seem to be consumed by dualism.
We are taught to focus on the differences between things in order to understand one from the other, for something to stand on its own against something else – boundaries and borders to create contrast and dimension.
.
Black and white,
shadow and light,
conservative edges
and graceful curves.
.
But what if we focused on the spaces between the contrast? What would we find there?
.
For me, grey seems the simplest way to comprehend such a notion. It’s a blending of two ends of the spectrum –
black absorbing all color and white reflecting it. .
Grey just is –
a gap, a portal,
a fusing of possibility. .

Yet, we are uncomfortable with grey because of its vastness, neutrality, perceived lack of control, and not having a clear delineation between its creators.
.
Would we become truly unified if we understood ourselves in this way - connected to and reflecting all of the colors, living from a place of pure potential?

Have you ever read a quote and thought, “I wonder if the whole book is that thought-provoking?”
I felt that way about Kahlil Gibran’s quotes. So a while back I bought a pocket-size version of The Prophet to read.
Totally worth it. So much interesting content in there. I’ve referred back to it in my mind numerous times over the past several months. (PS. The illustrations are super odd, so I’m glad I chose an edition without them.)

Seasons.
.
I’m in the season of change. Once our home was bustling with children. Now the walls are quiet. But the laughter still reverberates. And the sweet memories form happy tears.
.
What season are you in?

I've always had a very good relationship with words, pages, pens. Those pages have absorbed in all my secrets. Those pens know my words. Those words know my pain. These 3 things have been my best friends since I was a toddler. And they always will be :')
Writing is something which has never failed to bring me peace. Something which has never judged me, mocked at me. The pages have heard me patiently, the ink heavy with my tears. To this day, I shall say you must write your heart out. Sometimes, there are things which never make sense. And it's normal. That fear in your heart, it's normal. We're only humans after all. But, write it out if you can talk it out. Don't let that weight burden your soul.
That's all I have to say for this morning :')
This beautiful feather pen was gifted to me by @haseebjilani

What does 30 mean to me?
30 is arriving into my body for the first time in my life.
#
It’s showing up in my truth because it’s who I am fully raw and vulnerable.

It’s realizing who I once was is a part of me but not a definition.
#
It’s showing up unapologetically and eccentrically me.
#
It’s taking time to be alone and not feeling FOMO or guilt for staying in.
#
It’s asking the hard questions first to get them out of the way or even better to walk away.
#
It’s realizing that time is linear and there is always enough of it.
#
In fact it’s living in the notion there’s always enough of everything to go around.
#
It’s knowing and thriving in my own happiness and knowing that I am the only one that can fill that up.
#
It’s being solidly okay with being single or not.
#
It’s never settling.
#
It’s knowing fear does not exist just only in our minds.
#
It’s asking for advice, insight or help when you just can’t do things alone.
#
It’s knowing that as much as you want to always be superwoman you never quite are because that’s not real life and it’s okay to feel sad or negative or angry well, feel feelings in general.
#
It’s knowing that crying is okay, feeling is okay and just being in silence also okay.
#
It’s having true friends you can count on, lean on and love on. (You magical ones know who you are)
#
It’s knowing that seeking failure will get you farther than fearing failure.
#
Thay jumping into the unknown is the best thing you can do.
That sitting in the uncertainty of things provides all the answers.
#
And that we don’t know what we don’t know.
#
That being a master is being a forever student.
#
That accepting others fully is accepting ourselves.
#
It’s knowing one day I want to be a mom and honestly that’s an awesome feeling that we never talk about enough.
#
That we all have a voice, we all have a mission and it’s time to rise up.
#
This is 30.
I am ready.
