“I took it off.
I did not want to carry it with me anymore.”
― Ava, You Are Safe Here.
She always looked like she was in so much pain and agony. They judged her by the weight she was carrying on the outside but those who really knew her knew it came from the crown she wore on her head. Often the crown we carry on the outside can never compare to the crown that we carry on the inside……….
of a broken heart
She realized that the way she was carrying the crown was too much. It was weighing her down…….
So she took it off!

“For the person with creative potential there is no wholeness except in using it.”
― Robert K. Greenleaf
I was never able to tap into the creative nature inside of me until I learned:
To let people go
To let people grow
To not let everyone’s problems become my problems
To not be everything for everyone
How to forgive
How to live
How to place my needs before others
How to take the time to celebrate me
How to rest my mind
How to rest my body
How to enjoy life
How to smell the roses
How to enjoy each day for what it was
How to go off and enjoy my own company
How to ask for help instead of everyone asking me
How to stop people pleasing
How to cry if I’m hurt
And laugh when I’m happy
How to sit in solace and be content
It’s time to take the tattered pieces and create something beautiful!
Your life is your canvas pull out your utensils and put them to good use!!!!
“One of the greatest regrets in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself.”
― Shannon L. Alder
You took a step I took a step
You drank I drank
You cursed I cursed
You stole I stole
You lied I lied
You cried I cried
You were lost I was lost
You chose red I chose red
You gossiped I gossiped
You got angry I got angry
You were happy I was happy
You lead and I followed
We shared one brained because you were my influence
I don’t look like you
I don’t act like you
I don’t want to do what you do
I don’t want to be what you are
I don’t like red I like purple
I like to laugh and be happy not angry
I like who I am!
I was created to lead and not to follow
Life is too valuable to conform to the image of someone else
The silence depressed me. It wasn’t the silence of silence. It was my own silence. ~Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
But never be quiet…
Silence is only silence if you stay silent!
