(Re-blog)Toxic Relationship ? — Readers choice

There are many places you can go for help. None of it an easy step. There are people out there who will help you and support you — again, not an easy step. There are ways out. If you feel you’re in danger or if you can’t search for help on your phone or computer, please go to a library or have a trusted friend or co-worker use their phone to get you information. Please don’t feel ashamed to ask for help.

When you’re in a healthy relationship, everything just kind of works. Sure, there are bumps in the road, but you generally make decisions together, openly discuss any problems that arise, and genuinely enjoy each other’s company. Toxic relationships are another story. And when you’re in one, it can be harder to see red flags. If you […]

Coffee Break Poetry

This is just some free writing that was done at a point in my life when I realized it wasn’t about what others thought or what feelings others could fulfill for me. We are in charge of our own happiness. This is something that most people know from a much younger age than I. It’s something that I have struggled with for a long time. I still forget these things once in a while and so this brought me back to a time when I felt empowered to be my own hero, my own love, my own best friend.

I Want To Be The One

I want to be the one to take away your pain.

The one to save you from your fears.

The one to help you sleep at night.

The one to look into your eyes each morning,

say “Good Morning Beautiful”, and have a cup of coffee on the balcony.

End each day watching the sunset over the water.

I want to be the one to give you all my love,

My unconditional love and unwavering support.

You deserve to be happy.

To feel free, to feel loved, to feel important.

You’re worth it.

There’s no better way to fulfill all of our desires and needs…

Than being our own true love ❤ ❤


Let Your Light Shine

I recently saw this video on a friend’s blog and I wanted to share it with you.

You say
You want to get over
What are you gonna do?
Watch the world go by
In a corner of the room?

I know
None of my business
But there’s something I need to say
If you could see you
The way I see you
You’d start flying on your own

Step aside and . .

Let your light shine
Let your love show
It’s a short ride
Down the long road
When the rains come
And the winds blow
Let your light shine
Wherever you go

This world is ready and waiting
For you to break on through
It’s time to recognize
To realize
You’re the only one like you
Step on up
Step into your greatness
Don’t be afraid
There’s a place that you will rise up to;
No one else could do what you do

Get out of the way

Strawberry Moon

It was the last chance to see a supermoon this year, or so I’ve read 😉 Actually, whether or not this month’s Moon is a supermoon depends on which definition of “supermoon” you choose to follow! According to EarthSky , viewers will see this large golden moon for 2-3 nights. Sorry, it’s not actually strawberry colored.

Definitions of a super moon can vary, but the term generally means a full moon which is closer to the Earth and thus appearing larger and brighter. the strawberry moon on June 24 and 25 isn’t as close to the earth as the full moon in May or April.

So why is it called the strawberry moon if it’s not strawberry colored???

June’s full moon is often referred to as the strawberry moon because it often falls during the strawberry harvesting season in the northwestern U.S. Similarly, it has also been called the rose moon because it occurs around the time the roses bloom.

Other names that this month’s full name may go by are Flower Moon, Hot Moon, Planting Moon, Mead Moon and even Honey Moon. June is traditionally the month of marriages, and it is even named after the Roman goddess of marriage, Juno. Following marriage comes the “honeymoon,” of course and this reason may be tied to this alternative Moon name!

I realize this isn’t my normal type of post but… I am a moon child. My zodiac is Cancer, born in June and I found it fitting 😀

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! We’re in for a warm stretch ahead of us here.
