Going on vacation is always an escape from the world that awaits us back at home. Whether it is beaches or forests, a new place is bound to bring happy memories for years to come. However, there is something that could get in the way of this fantastic time. It's that little piece of technology that almost everyone owns these days and can usually be found right in front of our faces.
I don't know what to write Mind and blank screen fight For words to form and flow Barriers begin to build and grow It is not easy to keep dreaming
With just a click of a camera You can capture a moment for life A frozen piece of time so natural Sometimes a smile hiding the strife
I have insecurities That will not leave Each passing breath You give your life To better mine. My heart sinks deeper
I was never going to write this for the public. This is the main reason I will not put your name, but I have a feeling that if you are reading this then you know who you are. A few days ago I was heated that you found out what I did and, you being you, decided to make it clear that you could spy on me whenever you like. I wanted to write a hate speech about you, have the world see how despicable you really are. Yet, I realized that this would make me just like you, and I'll never let that happen.
Since I spend most of my day on social media, computer screens, and editing apps, I like to have a balance of other fun activities to do on my phone when the work day is over. Some of these apps are for enjoyment while others are for shopping, scheduling, and everything in between.
You've lost your job. Your boyfriend dumped you. The car won't start. Every day seems to bring on new stress. You have officially hit your all-time low in life. Could it get any worse? Is this my life now? This moment is considered rock bottom, and it is usually not seen as a blessing. We don't want to ever get to this point but, inevitably, we all hit it at one point in time. I'm here to tell you that, while it sucks, this could be the exact thing you needed. As the saying goes, there is nowhere to go but up.
There are certain things and chores I do each day that create a space for success to build. These routines, if not done, can sometimes lead to a morning filled with exhaustion and chaos. While they have changed throughout the years, they are a part of me now. My routine might not be for you, but I have found that giving myself tasks right before bed has helped me wake up with a clear mind that is ready for whatever the day brings.
