The Alphabet Soup Project: Letter F • In order for these to just barely fit into the month of July, they will be blocked like this every few days. It sort of blows my feed up in a weird way but, oh well. Enjoy. • #thealphabetsoupproject #thesinglesentenceproject #onesentenceaday #journal #writersofinstagtam

Sarah had planned the meal carefully and had tidied and cleaned her apartment until it practically sparkled. It was almost unrecognizable. Even Frank her cat was impressed, or maybe confused.
After witnessing the car theft at the coffee shop she'd discovered the victim was actually her neighbour, Jackson Wilkes.
Without thinking she'd blurted out an invitation to dinner, and he'd accepted.
She picked up Frank for a hug. That didn't impress him much as he jumped onto the couch.
"I hope he likes pasta, Frank."

I'm writing a novel about a queen fighting to get her kingdom back from a dangerous and power-hungry tyrant, but I'm at a loss from where to gather inspiration 🤔

The parents of your parents are those who protected you from being beaten by your parents.
They gave you that extra money when you just asked them with your little hands.
They comforted you after you failed miserably.
And you?
You don't give them time, smile or even the attention that they truly deserve.
These are some of those who actually deserve your attention.
Don't make them feel alone, when they are actually doing nothing the whole day. Because they can't do it. Not that they don't want to.
Even they can work and earn, even better than you.

Go to them, be with them, eat with them, travel with them, before it's too late and you can't see them around you.
It sucks, trust me. It does.

So I've been sleeping on the side of the bed that my grandma used to sleep in before she passed away. And I've missed her terribly.
Sometime when I look back, I see how I've failed her miserably on many of the aesthetics that she'd taught me.
When I came crying to her after being scolded bad by my mother, she used to comfort me and sing me to sleep.
She never let me cry myself to sleep.

Amma, come back in any form. Please.

Sometimes, I cry myself to sleep now.

"We were placed in the eye of the Atlantic, the forever center of the horizon, and no amount of contradicting science can deny + drown the poetic sensation of sailing in the middle of all beginnings as we know it. We grew deeper without ever having to grow up - reveling in the severe simplicity of the sea. I recall hoping I'd never have to remember home, hoping I'd never have to leave the china blue compass of directions that eluded me. The land that had loved me well gave me the roots necessary to bloom but failed to provide me the blue that was required for me to grow. I lacked the language and existential dexterity to write love letters worthy enough of throwing into the ocean I always knew as my own. But somehow I knew through years of celestial affairs + in and out of childhood, I'd end up with the Wild Things, where I knew they'd waited for me." olu. from Somewhere in the Atlantic.

This week's post is called 'fear. And the power affirmations: step by step, ferociously'- 'The purpose of affirmations, in my experience, is not that they magically create what you want. I don’t sit here in the belief that saying it will make it happen. But in reality, like everything else we’re exposed to on a subconscious level, they influence behaviour. If I have it in my head that ‘I choose wellness’ then I know when I go shopping I won’t buy the things that make me slower; for breakfast I’ll choose fruit and water instead of something heavier that will slow me down. If I believe what I say when I read on my bathroom mirror ‘Everything I do is leading to my ultimate freedom and happiness’ then, instead of vegging out and binging on Netflix when my son goes to bed, I will do something productive, something that will push my knowledge towards where it needs to be in order for me to be ‘successful’ on my own terms.' to read more follow the link in my bio. #lifeblogger #blogger #travelblog #motherhood #blogger #writersofinstagtam

Love will find you in the corridor
for sheer convenience
even come knocking on your door
(somewhere around half past four)
love will not ask for anything
love will just give you her core
love may leave trinkets in your drawer
and clothes strewn all over the floor
you will look for love between the sheets
exhausted, you will fall into a soft snore
later, even when under the shower
love will be missing in the downpour
you will try to distract yourself
with other chores
walk down to the nearby store
ask for a sandwich and coffee
you’ll sit to savour it indoors
when somewhere a table in the corner
which catch your attention
remind you of a time before
restless you’ll step away
looking for escape in the outdoors
but every step you take
will be one love has walked with you before
everywhere you go
anything you do
will remind you of a love unspoken for
until a realization will come to the fore
of a love that never kept score
of why and what for
a love that was unaccounted for
a love that has you yearning for more.

1.It’s every day, you know.
This thing.
I smile and I smile
and you make me laugh,
but you’re all the way over there
and I’m here
smiling
aching
laughing
wishing,
like I still believe stars listen.
-
2. I’ve grown up
so much this year,
more from die-off
than desire,
and I’ve learned
that wanting with all my heart
will never be enough.
Wishes are wasted
and stars
are just burning gas.
-
3. I’m learning to pack my heart tight,
neat,
to keep it safe
from moving around so much,
but, I do love you,
wishes or not,
yes, I do love you,
and no matter what I tell myself
when you’re not around,
when you are
I’m on fire.
-
4. I lay awake the span of night
your face I picture
close to mine
and try to wish you
next to me
the pillow sweet
with the scent of you
your shy smile
thrilling, in my bed
your hand in mine
I kiss your fingers
your eyes blink
I love you —
confirmed with a smile.
-
5. Tragic, pointless, merciless,
painful, hopeless,
preposterous
wishes
again, tonight.
-
Sometimes I do not sleep at all.

She: Not in this lifetime, but in every lifetime after this.
He: What if this is what you said in your last.//

Come watch the moon with me tonight
and I’ll pretend to share the light,
while empty-handed wish’s flight
comes tumbling to the ground.
°
The moon I’ll send you, from my eyes
if I could more than long and sigh
I’d pull the stars down from the skies
and fashion you a crown.
°
Come watch the moon with me tonight
and I’ll pretend that I’m alright
while I speak words of lunar light
my starving heart won’t make a sound.
°
I’ll send a silent wish tonight
through endless desperate lovers’ lights
two lonely stars set in the night,
in blackness lost, in moonlight found.

I have lived with love
I have known hate too
Lately I’ve been caught between them two.
But indifference…
Indifference is new to me
I’ve never met it before.
So when it came knocking on my door
I was like, hello
come on in, I implore
please help me with my furor
blood and gore
this internal hot and cold war.
Promptly it replied,
are you sure?
for once I come in
you will forget things you live with
and stuff you know
you will feel nothing no more
so think about it
let’s talk it over
while I’m still at the door
as of now you have a choice
you can win this battle
if you try a little more
give it one more go
live with love
let hate go
but once we shake hands
I need to let you know
yes hate, will die
but love too will need to go
furthermore — 
insignificance will live at your core
it will often bring emptiness to the fore
it may leave you feeling uncared-for
now what are you in for
choose;
either you settle your own score
you restore
or you embrace me forevermore
though remember;
I come with a price you need to pay for.I have lived with love

Sometimes I don't know what to say, how to behave, respond or act.
.
Sometimes, I find it easier to condemn rather than show love, to avoid rather than speak truth, to judge hearts before first looking at my own.
.
Sometimes my flesh and emotions wildly yell their opinions, demanding their own way, and it's hard to even listen for a whisper of truth.
.
And sometimes, my own inadequacies cause me to lose hope, concluding that "it can all never be mended", as my eyes lose sight of Hope Himself.
.
But when I finally sit and look to Jesus, observing how He spoke, behaved, loved and lived - I find an example to follow, though still imperfectly yet undoubtedly.
.
When I look to Jesus, it's easier to show love, speak truth, bestow grace - as I remember my own daily sin and once again confess my need for a Savior.
.
When I look to Jesus, my flesh disappears and emotions subside as truth floods in, restoring both my heart and perspective.
.
And when I look to Jesus, my inadequacies become the reason for my Hope and dependency upon Him, the One Who mends our brokenness - no matter how busted up we may look or be.
.
"My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever." Psalm 73
.
My friend, if your heart is struggling today with fear or heartache, brokenness or hopeless - look with me to Jesus and find strength to continue on... #lookingtojesus
