She Chronicles presents, “Reflections” by Dawn Edwards

We all have moments where we get caught up dealing with life’s chaos and whatever struggles we’re facing, and we have a hard time filtering out all the negative crap that likes to build up and overwhelm us. That’s when it’s crucial that we are careful about the kind of “Self-Talks” we have because if we’re not careful, those little talks can too easily be consumed with an unhealthy amount of pessimism and bitterness that tends to accompany us in times of stress and worry.

When times are hard, they can often be blessings in disguise- so you must let go and allow life to strengthen and guide you, because no matter how it much it may hurt, you need to hold your head up and keep it moving- remember this when you’re having a rough day, a bad month, or a crappy year- just know that things will change and you will not feel this way forever.

We gotta keep in mind that we are in control of our attitude and our way of looking at things, and it doesn’t take much sometimes to let our thoughts overwhelm us and then our heads are filled with, “I’ll never get this finished.”  “I can’t.”  “What else can go wrong?”  “I have too much on my plate, I can’t deal with it anymore.”

That’s when you gotta manage those self-defeating thoughts and acknowledge that to attract positivity, you gotta start by giving off positive energy. Stop focusing solely on what’s going wrong and what can’t be done, and put more energy into doing whatever is in your power to better your situation.

Try shifting your perspective, Take a deep breath. Take a walk.  Move to another room.  Sometimes working from a different location can bring a different perspective and some much-needed clarity.  To keep your sanity and stay mentally sane, sometimes you just need to change your point of view and tell the negative committee that likes to meet up inside your mind to be quiet.

She Chronicles presents “About a Girl” by Dawn Edwards

I’m sitting here wondering, pondering, contemplating, deliberating, anxiously waiting for the precise moment where it all becomes painstakingly clear to me.

But so far nothing; nothing that explains why the Universe has brought me to her- her to me- us together in this time and place…

Ahhh… alas, here we are, two old souls reunited, reconnected from some time past…

She knows me, and I know her, yet there’s so much to discover about one another…

What does her laugh sound like?

When she smiles, does it reach her eyes or remain at her lips?

What does her touch feel like?

Where do her stray thoughts lead her?

There is an attraction that transcends the physical- it’s spiritual. It feels good, it feels scary, it feels authentic, it feels… purposeful…

Almost as if it were meant… the Universe brings people together for a reason. To fulfill its own unique purpose, for whatever length of time…

I suppose time will reveal…
