Reflection

My absence is a result of simply not making time for this space. I can say that a lot was going on before this post but not much of anything that I couldn’t stop by to say a word or two. Like check-in, complain about the same shit that everyone complains about, talk about the political climate like I care, or talk about the things I promised myself that I would separate myself from that clearly I haven’t, and yes all of the above could had been said since my last post but I simply did not make time.

Ok, I’m here

It’s the middle of October and I finally made it here.

There’s a lot to say because there’s a lot to feel this month.

I’m learning that my words are powerful and that I am choosing to be silent.

I’m happier in other areas of my life than others but I’m well.

My no meat diet is in full effect but carbs are controlling my life.

I went to the gym to blow off some steam in hopes that my neck pain will subside but the fluctuating temperature has other plans for my neck.

Knowledge is power and I’m praying that I can effectively apply something that I had learned in a training this week to a future meeting coming in a couple days because as simple as my job is, it can be difficult at times too.

I can be a bit more positive, but give me some time to process, I’ll do better soon. I’m looking forward to some well needed time off in the beginning of next month. Trip? Maybe.

How has the month been going for you?

Safety

I purchased that grey acrylic chair through a craigslist ad back when I was rooming. I had no business buying another piece of furniture while living in that room but I couldn’t say no to it. I contacted the seller, jumped in my car, drove to Brooklyn, placed my new chair in the back seat, picked up some flowers from a farmer’s market in that neighborhood, went home and spent almost 3 hours figuring out where I wanted to place my chair. I placed my chair in the corner of my room, next to a window that seemed to be the perfect spot. That summer I spent most of my afternoons in that chair thinking and drinking a cup of tea. Those months were filled with confusion, pain, transition, love, forgiveness, sacrifice, and lots of patience. That chair became a space to reconnect. Continue reading “Safety”

Dear Diary,

After reading old post from the last couple of years, my last quarter of the year will always be challenging. I think I came on here today to rant about everything that I am currently going through. Honestly, it’s not that deep because things can be worst and life isn’t so bad. I’m a sucker for change and I’m ready for something new. I had not been able to admit that until now. It’s Saturday night and I’m home watching YouTube and typing this because parties aren’t my thing, my love life is still dry, I don’t entertain anyone, my work week starts tomorrow, and I switched up my apartment for the season so I enjoy being home anyway. However, I do have a few things to release; Continue reading “Dear Diary,”
