You rock my world baby, you so totally do. Let’s dance the dance with wild abandon. Let’s jump on that train of somewhere new. Let’s runaway and horde our delight. Let’s sing that song all day long. We’ll sip at our elixir like thieves in the night. And, Stay up into dawn’s breaking light. You …
One day I’ll tell you, maybe. How the smiles were hiding screams, silent to even me. How the surface was so slick and fake, like a mask. How my world lost its light, crushing my soul. And. How I almost left this place, before my time. One day I’ll tell you, maybe. But not today.
I know you walk past the house each day and see, your stuff, my stuff, our stuff, put out on the curb for garbage. What does it make you think? Do you care? How does it make you feel? Oh, I forgot, you don’t know how to feel.

After too many days filled with data, should do’s, and deadlines I realised that my friend had been right. “It’s creativity that nurtures the soul.” ~ An original image quote by Amanda Ricks 2017
The evening settled on us like a welcome mediator. Dimming the stark reality, hushing tones, and muffling our harsh thoughts. I heard a sigh and wondered if it was another unspoken apology or merely a step closer to the door.
If only somehow, someway, a bridge of trust had allowed my love to quell your self-imposed embitterment.” ~ Amanda Ricks
“Those hot summer nights spent on the porch, with my skirts hiked up, a glass of perspiring lemonade beside me, and a drip of sweat sliding torturously down my temple.”

I think I originally wrote this in 2015 but recently found it in my files. I immediately thought of the valiant struggle that a blogger friend of mine is currently experiencing. With that thought in mind, blessings to everyone out there who struggles late at night in the dark.
Action affects our thoughts, Our thoughts affect our feelings, Our feelings affect our mood. So open that front door and keep putting one foot in front of the other until you feel better. ~ ©2015 Amanda Ricks
Life is about living. It’s in the doing, not the finishing, succeeding, or winning.
