Be Happy

#creative writing, #poetry

Be happy

even when you’re so sad

a smile feels like climbing a mountain

on a stormy day

Be happy

when the winds are so strong

your face becomes ice

and your arms flap wildly about

unable to tether you

Be happy

for the sake of tomorrow

when the sun will surely shine again

Be happy

when the rain retreats

so that you are stronger

when it returns again

I can recall every curve

of every body I have lived in

every thought

every wave of emotion

the high and low tides

conjured by my eyes

and I wonder about the days

wasted in front of mirrors

the hours given to a voice

that was never mine to begin with

Morning Rituals

Uncategorized

The key to having a good day is starting it right. I make sure I am always up an hour and a half before I leave for work. WHY am I so insane?

Because it actually keeps me sane. The working day has a habit of becoming an endless working week without the actually living your life part. I make sure I spend enough time in the morning paying attention to how I look and what I am eating. While I eat, I usually read a self-help book to give me some daily wisdom. I am currently reading Ekhart Toll’s A New Earth.
