Doop doop doop du doop
Swoosh swoosh swoosh… zing!
La la la la di di daaaa
Plink plunk plink plunk
Snap Snap Snap … Boom!
Oooo Ooooo Oooooo
It doesn’t matter what melodies you listen to. Music can make you laugh, smile and even cry. Just listen to whatever feels right.
Sometimes there are no words to describe your thoughts because they are a jumbled up mess. Sometimes curve balls get thrown your way, and you can’t dodge them. Sometimes you feel so lost that there is no way of finding your way back. Then, from out of nowhere, there is a tiny ray of light shining through the dark clouds. There is someone out there who makes you feel like you aren’t alone and everything is going to be alright. Continue reading
To the Sun and the Moon,
The light escapes me.
Which one comes first?
Why do we belong with the Day and not the Night?
Who’s to say we can’t live in your world?
Who’s to say we don’t quite fit in?
With those big glowing eyes, you can see hidden life.
You can see moments that light cannot capture.
You can see the beauty amongst the shadows and the darkness.
I wish I could see the beauty of both worlds like you do.
Time does not yield, much less stop.
It’s always moving
It’s always passing.
Time isn’t something we can hold onto.
It isn’t tangible.
It isn’t reversible.
Time doesn’t tell us how much we’ve been given.
It could be today or tomorrow.
It could be years from now.
Time is a mystery so we should live it like tomorrow might never come.
When your thoughts become overcrowded,
remember there is a silver lining behind each dark cloud.
When the hefty storms leave you feeling like a weeping willow,
remember the tempest will leave behind a beautiful rainbow.
At times, the world will seem overwhelming.
At times, everything will be overbearing.
But when you feel like you’re at your weakest,
remember you are not alone.
My Monday reflections: Life isn’t perfect, and we all have different obstacles we face. Your problem might be different from mine, but we all go through the same motions. Knowing this, lets me realize we share the same experiences so we aren’t going through life alone.
How do you live with a monster in your head?
How do you continue when it tries to knock you dead?
I’ve found myself caught between two worlds.
There’s the easygoing Dr. Jekyll.
And there’s the frightening Mrs. Hyde.
Jekyll and Hyde.
Which one really am I?
I can’t control the latter.
I want to hold onto the former.
When there is no solution, there are two things you can do.
You can succumb to the maddening sadness and let it take its toll.
Or you can make the best of the situation with all your heart and soul.
My Monday Reflections:
We never know what cards we will be dealt with, but it’s fruitless spending our energy trying to alter the things we cannot change. Life must go on. Why not make the most of it with the ones we love?
I wake up to a sunrise, but inside it feels like a sunset. It’s not the soft, golden kind. It’s more of a melancholy blue. I said I wouldn’t let the monster in my head win, but some days the struggle is just so difficult. Continue reading
Melodic sounds of Bach and Mozart hum through my ears.
The aroma of fresh, hot coffee fills the air.
It’s a slow morning, much like all Mondays are.
One wishes weekends could be long-lasting.
One wishes we could have slept just a bit longer.
But weekdays have a way of getting here before expected.
I know “end” is in the word, which is why it doesn’t last.
But why can’t there be more days in the weekends?
I’ve left this blog abandoned for far too long. Life has a way of passing by so quickly. If it wasn’t for the change of green leaves to red, yellow and orange, we might just forget what season we’re in. As Purple Day approaches, I thought I’d revisit and update my epilepsy journey. After all, Purple Day is dedicated to raising awareness for epilepsy worldwide. By sharing our stories, we can teach other about this neurological disorder.
Will you join me in wearing purple on March 26th to raise awareness for epilepsy? Continue reading
With trying to get my seizures under control and adjusting to my new meds, unfortunately, I won’t be making it to the National Walk for Epilepsy in Washington this year.
However, this doesn’t mean I can’t walk here in Texas!
If you’re in the area and would like to walk for a good cause, please join me in strolling at the 2018 Stroll for Epilepsy in Dallas, Texas.
My team, Game of Temporal Lobe, will be raising awareness and funds for the Epilepsy Foundation of Texas, and we’d love for you to be part of our team!
