Words from the Week

Happy Free-Thinking Friday!! I’ve been challenging myself to write more often so I spent some time this week doing just that. I hope you enjoy “words from the week”

Day One:

There is unrest. There is unrest in my spirit when it comes to you. There is unrest in my spirit when it comes to you and I don’t know how to crawl back to happiness. There is unrest in my spirit when it comes to you and existing feels like walking through a minefield, doing my best to avoid triggers that may remind me of you. There is unrest in my spirit and I don’t know how to fix it.

Day Two:

Learning to love you responsibly is remembering that I am deserving of care and comfort. It is tending to my needs. It is putting myself first.

Day Three

I’m running a race and the only person in the lane next to me is my former self. The Briana of yesterday is my only competition. I’m in a race of my own so the only person to look over and compete with is the woman I was before. My job is to prove that I’m better, faster and stronger than I was yesterday. I have to beat that woman no matter what. I have to beat her mentally, spiritually, and physically. I have to be the best version of myself possible and the only way I can do that is by beating the Briana of yesterday & Honestly, she ain’t got nothing on me.

Day Four:

I’m learning that there is complexity to loss and around every avenue where it exists, sadness will follow.

Loss is a labyrinth with no exit.

Sadness lives in every corridor,

It waits for you around every bend,

There is no escape.
