The Necessary

From the time of our birth we were taught how to survive.

What to do?

How to do it;

what was necessary in order to make it to the next day.

We’ve all heard of evolution, and how things change and develop over time.

“Only the strong will survive”

Physically and mentally.

It’s not easy in today’s ever-changing world, but if you want to be a part of it you must learn how to survive.

Not only the basics of waking up, eating, getting dressed, but also how to get ahead in life. How to be more than just exist in this form (What’s Your Purpose?). To find a deeper meaning to life and to live it out each day.

Survival is necessary.

“You never need to apologize for how you chose to survive.”

I survived because the fire inside me burned brighter than the fire around me.

Longing For

I may be young, but I have this strong desire to find love; true, genuine LOVE.

What am I longing for? Someone:

To hold me, and tell me everything is going to be alright.

To comfort me when I need a friend.

To motivate me when my inspiration dwindles.

To push me to reach my goals, when I feel like giving up.

To treat me like the queen I am.

A lover

A best-friend

A Partner

My other half/Soulmate

I hope one day we find each other soon.

Time to LEAP

In response to the Daily Post’s prompt “Leap

That’s usually how it starts right? By taking a leap?

A leap of Faith as it’s so called. However, if you’re anything like me you’d probably just dip your toe in, because you’re too afraid of anything.

From meeting new people, to going new places, trying new things whatever it may be there’s always that fear holding you back. You rather stay in your comfort zone, than experience anything different, and this has been me for my entire life.

Think of how many opportunities I’ve missed out on, because of this: A LOT! Deep down I know *or at least can imagine* my true potential, and it’s not anywhere near what I am now.

Almost everyday I declare i’m tired of this life, and want more; how i’m going to show off my true self. But then I wake up, and i’m back where I started, the frightened little girl only wanting to stay within the comforts of her apartment.

So what’s it going to take for me to do the leap?

Lately, I’ve been thinking that maybe it’s a result of my lack of faith, so I’ve been trying to grow that. Attempting to speak and put positivity into the open so that it could get back to me *karma*. I’ve learned that your mind and your thoughts have a huge impact on how you live your life. It may not be the easiest thing, but I’m trying.

The time for me to leap is near.

Unanswered Questions

Daily Prompt:Β All or Nothing?Β  – Which do you find dangerous wanting everything? or wanting nothing?

I’ve read this question over and over in my mind. “What’s more dangerous, to want everything or want nothing.” The answer seemed simple, of course to want nothing. But then I kept thinking why would a question phrased that way be so easy to answer, is there some sort of reverse psychology to get you into thinking about both sides. Maybe single out which one has the least disadvantages? I still believe the answer would remain the same.

Think about it. A person who wants nothing has no goals, no plans, nothing to look forward too. They’re mainly going with the flow, right? So where does that leave them?

If you want nothing, what’s your purpose in life?

How are you comfortable wanting nothing?

Is that even real?

Are there people in the world who honestly and truly want nothing?

The Hungry, the sick, the poor, the rich, everybody must want something, it’s only right.

But of course the question wasn’t about wanting nothing, it was which do you find more dangerous…

Despite persons out there wanting nothing, does that make it less dangerous than those who want everything?

You might be thinking everything like what? So let’s put it into perspective as it relates to my life “Unemployed College Grad” *that’s the title I give myself now*. What would mean everything to me? A JOB, money, my own vehicle, a relationship, my own apartment, my own website/business, knowing my parents are safe and happy…. now i’m stuck, and i felt like this list was going to be longer.

Wanting everything doesn’t necessarily have to mean materialistic things, but you get the point…

At what point do you stop wanting? After the first list of things that you deem “everything” has been achieved, does your wanting go away? or do you want more? Like nothing is ever going to be enough, and you’re never going to be satisfied.

Now I really don’t have an answer.

So ALL or NOTHING? What’s it gonna be?

Tornado Remnants

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Sweeping Motions.”

When I was younger my mom always had a problem with the state of our (My little sister and I) bedroom. She’d always compare our room to the after passage of a tornado. We never experienced a tornado, so maybe a hurricane description would be more sufficient. Anyway, she usually said “Your room look like a hurricane/tornado passed through it….” Well, it was more in our native tongue, and not particularly standard English.
