changing


I whisper that I don't want anything to change
but that's like trying to stop the ocean from coming up on the beach

change isn't a bad thing
it's just a part of life
it's just a part of you

the sky is always changing
from the brightest blue
to the blackest thunderstorms
to the softest orange ripples of sunset
to the palest pink blush of dawn

that doesn't mean the sky isn't to be trusted
it is always steadfast
always there
but always changing

just like you,
darling,
are always changing

and it's just a twist in the road
a tempo change in the song
of life

it's life

feel
dream
cry
scream
laugh

I know you're young and confused and trapped in one life when you want a thousand more

but this is your life
and yes it's always changing
but that doesn't mean it isn't to be trusted

it's always here
it's always yours

live it.

whispers in the worry

Body of Water Wave

"You don't have to worry."

This is what He whispers to me, multiple times daily now, when I'm again stuck in a rut of thought that brings me nothing but stress: frantic thoughts about myself, my job, this body, the future.

"You don't have to worry."

Not audible, but clearly heard, a sentiment I don't understand. I want to plan, I want to know, I want to think my way through problems and people and come out with the answer fully formed.

I'm a solver, but there are some things I can't solve. Some things (actually, all things) that I have to give to Him to handle. When I start worrying about the next day's tasks or the future of a relationship or what people might think of me, I forget that He's right here, ready to whisper words of peace to me.

"You don't have to worry."

I Am Creatively Busy

I'm very busy is a general phrase.

I'm creatively busy is a more accurate phrase.

I run two blogs, am learning by lectures and studying, and maintain a healthy lifestyle that keeps me emotionally and physically engaged. I spend a lot of time doing things that I am passionate about. Most of the things that keep me busy happen to be creative things! And hence the phrase creatively busy is made.

All these things are solely me focused.

I am busy being creative is not an excuse to not get together or make times for other things. It is the lifestyle I am living. I am one of the many who lives this kind of lifestyle. I am one of the many that is going to change the world. I am busy in the best of ways and I love it. You are someone with the power to change the world, yourself, and others for better. Use your time in ways that stand out.
