expression

Daily Prompt: Unpredictable I have so many thoughts in my head I have so many feelings in my heart Sometimes it’s hard to differentiate between the two mediums But one thing I know for sure is that whenever I try to express either of them, I completely shut down Advertisements

The Storm

Daily Prompt: The Storm She weathered the storm whether she liked it or not. Because each little storm taught her how to be stronger than before. And each time the storm passed; brought an even greater sunshine.    

Sing

Reply to the Daily Prompt: Sing I have been in a huge sing-along mood this weekend, and I’ve also been majorly channeling my inner black woman with a manly voice – none other than the Tracy Chapman! So this playlist of her ‘best of’ songs has been playing on repeat; and LOUD; with me singing … Continue reading

Beach

Response to the Daily Prompt: Beach No words needed. The beach is my everything place.

Hope

Response to the Daily Prompt: Hope Just like that; all hope is gone. In one second; during one phone call; the last tiny little bit I had harboured for so long, has now vanished. And with that, my heart was broken; shattered; poured out onto the floor; crushed beyond recognition. Once and for all. My … Continue reading

Conversations with myself

This post has been in my draft folder for quite some time. So when I came across today’s Daily Prompt, I thought it would be a better time than any to finish it off and post it. (Not quite an ‘interview’, but hell, I don’t care) I’ve been trying to think why I’ve been so … Continue reading

Home is many places…but it isn’t a place

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Home Turf.” Name five things in your house that make it a home. Hmmm….this is an interesting one! Some time late last year I wrote a post titled “A house is not a home”. And much of it still rings true. Although where I am living now is different … Continue reading

My to do list…that never gets done

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “The Satisfaction of a List.” I have a list on the side of my desk that I wrote…probably a few months ago…actually, now that I think about it, it was probably closer to 6 months ago. Anyway, it’s a list of things I should do sometime soon, but … Continue reading

Putting the parts together

Today’s daily prompt: Open your nearest book to page 82. Take the third full sentence on the page, and work it into a post somehow. This was taken from the book 2nd Chance by James Patterson. “My mind tried over and over to put together the parts.” Ha! What a line. It seems like this line is … Continue reading

I’m giving in

I guess I just forgot that friends can hurt you and break your heart just as much as a lover can. I had a whole post planned out for the above line, but now I can’t think of what to say. Long story short, I recently (re-)became friends with, well…an old friend (who had initially broke … Continue reading

Olivia the Octagon

If your life were a movie, what would its soundtrack be like? What songs, instrumental pieces, and other sound effects would be featured on the official soundtrack album? Obviously I couldn’t not write about this as my love for music is featured throughout my blog. And if there’s one thing people notice, it might be … Continue reading

16 going on 27

Daily Prompt: Present-day you meets 10-years-ago you for coffee. Share with your younger self the most challenging thing, the most rewarding thing, and the most fun thing they have to look forward to. You’re going to love travel, diversity and being lost in the unknown. Things are going to get harder. But there will also be … Continue reading

Voice Work

I’ve been thinking about this daily prompt for a little while now, and upon going through and reading some of my old posts, I’ve decided I wouldn’t want anyone else to be the voice of my blog except me. When I read posts, I obviously read them in my voice, and all my stories, opinions … Continue reading

A house is not a home

I’ve been thinking about this for a little while now but I could never really find the words to say what I am feeling and thinking. So this daily prompt is really going to push me to force out whatever I can on this. Ready, Set, Done: Our ten-minute free-write is back! Have no mercy on … Continue reading

Kevin DeHeaven

This daily prompt was inspired by none other than yours truly. My reasons for submitting this as a daily prompt was due to my brother having an imaginary friend when we were kids, and in my more recent years it got me wondering if whether or not he actually saw someone, like a ghost or … Continue reading

I hope this counts for something

I am a few days behind on this daily prompt but it says: You’ve been given the opportunity to send one message to one person you wouldn’t normally have access to (for example: the President. Kim Kardashian. A coffee grower in Ethiopia). Who’s the person you choose, and what’s the message? My message isn’t of importance … Continue reading

Sunrise at the top of the world

Today’s Daily Prompt asks this: New Dawn How often do you get to (or have to) be awake for sunrise? Tell us about what happened the last time you were up so early (or late…). I love sunrise, and sunset – however I rarely am awake early enough for sunrise because I really enjoy a … Continue reading

The Tenth Insight

Today’s daily prompt asks this: Off the Shelf Take a look at your bookcase. If you had enough free time, which book would be the first one you’d like to reread? Why? Well, the quick answer is the book The Tenth Insight by James Redfield, which is the next book in sequence after his book The Celestine Prophecy. I … Continue reading

No silver lining in this playbook

Today’s daily prompt asks: When was the last time a movie, a book, or a television show left you cold despite all your friends (and/or all the critics) raving about it? What was it that made you go against the critical consensus? The most recent one I can think of is the movie ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ incase … Continue reading

Edge of the Frame

Today’s Daily Prompt: We often capture strangers in photos we take in public. Open your photo library, and stop at the first picture that features a person you don’t know. Now tell the story of that person. Well, this was actually harder to find than I thought it would! Mostly because I don’t store many … Continue reading

What’s my age again?

Today’s daily prompt is questioning whether or not age is something to be mindful of. “Age is just a number,” says the well-worn adage. But is it a number you care about, or one you tend (or try) to ignore? I believe in the idea that age is just a number and I often try … Continue reading

The Umbrella Girl – A Kind Stranger

Today’s daily prompt is about the kindness of strangers, asking us: When was the last time a stranger did something particularly kind, generous, or selfless for you? Tell us what happened! Well, let me tell you a little story which is actually about me being the kind stranger. Last week, as I got off the train … Continue reading

Forgive but don’t Forget

Daily Prompt: Do you hold grudges or do you believe in forgive and forget? Mahatma Gandhi said: “The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong.” I believe forgiveness is the key to your own peace and happiness. But that doesn’t mean you have to forget. Our experiences are what make us who … Continue reading
