This complex life

via Daily Prompt: Hospitality

I wasn’t sure what to write today so I referred to my trusty notepad of my favorite quotes on my phone and felt the need to share this one. The stops along your life are not always filled with hospitality, sometimes the environment surrounding you is cruel, hurtful and downright painful but it is your story. Own it and be proud of who you are, scars and all. I dedicate today’s blog to all those bloggers and writers out there who bravely share their stories.

Your story isn’t calm.
The road has been chaotic at times,
Filed with detours, and rains,
and loss so sudden, and soon.
Sometimes the bliss was so elevated
Your heart could hardly hold it.
Sometimes it was maddening to have,
And then to lose it. You learn soon enough
that it is hardly ever goes as planned–
gently, easy and smooth.
But that my friend,
is what makes it fascinating
You have something to tell.
Something you walked through.
Something valid.
Something courageous,
Something true.
You’re made of stories
Within stories, even
more stories. Those
quiet depths of you.

About geminilvr

I have been through many relationships in my life, most long term, and they have all shaped who I am in some way. I try to find humor through the pain and heartbreak and find the strength to do it all over again. Navigating the dating waters in my forties isn't easy but hey what in life is? My blog is sprinkled with past relationships, current status and thoughts on it all! I hope my experiences make you smile, laugh or cry along with me and relate to the complexity that is life, my life, perfectly imperfect.

  1. Thank you for the dedication, every one of the stories I publish prove how insane I really am, but I bravely share them and hope the men in white suits don’t come knocking on my door.
