"The rain to the wind said,
'You push and I'll pelt.'
They so smote the garden bed
That the flowers actually knelt,
And lay lodged-- though not dead.
I know how the flowers felt." 🏵️🥀🌾
- Robert Frost
You stare into my eyes but what color are they?
You say you love me but who am I?
the simplest words can hold the deepest meanings.
My little book to make you feel something will be available May 15 💫
You dont deserve to lie to yourself like that. ❤
Do you ever stop to think about how much time we spending waiting.
Waiting for the email
Waiting on a text
Waiting on a call
Waiting on a job offer
Waiting on a relationship
It's like we've become slaves to the waiting. Don't believe it? Ask yourself when the last time you put your phone down in another room and completely unplugged was. So you couldn't hear it buzz. So you weren't constantly checking in anticipation of something new. We want instant gratification and we've put it in the hands of others and the the mercy of technology.
But what happens when the very thing you've been waiting for, building up anticipation for doesn't happen? Are you held hostage by the defeat? Does the void leave you paralyzed with disappointment and sadness?
Don't spend your life constantly waiting and refreshing your phone. That's no way to live.
Put the phone aside and go out there. Stop waiting and watching, put on your big girl boots and make something happen. Throw away your fear and chase after what you want don't wait for it to pass you bye.
Because when you stop waiting and you stop refreshing, you make your own breaks and you'll find out that waiting wasn't the only option after all.
