When their bucket list is a lie
There are times when it’s ok to look back.
Have you ever felt so empowered that you could climb and conquer any boulder that comes your way? For once in my life, that’s how I truly feel. 🧠 For many, many years, all I did was follow the crowd. I played things safe. I endured every rock that was thrown in my direction. I did everything I could to satisfy those around me. I did things for the sake of doing them, not because my heart was actually in it. What I failed to realize at the time was that I was the one who was stuck with myself. Everything I ever held on to that was against what I believed in only hurt me. 🌪 A sequence of events that took place in recent years allowed me to reclaim control over my life. I learned how to let go without feeling guilty, or deeply saddened by the emptiness it brought me. I trained my mind to no longer consume itself with poisonous thoughts and the people who were the primary cause of them. 💎 One day, things just suddenly became clear. Change became the cornerstone to building a solid foundation for my life. And with each passing experience, I began to discover myself and the power of my own voice. And now that I have found it, I will never let it leave me again.

From a weirdo poem I’m working on.
"The Day" (2011/12) I believe this is my first poem ever, from February, 2011. . . . #theday #thebeginning #homeschool #poet #writer #poetry #poem #light #canadianwriter #jdwest

Objects in stories can be significant. Take a ring, for example. It could be just a ring, but to make it significant, you might turn it into an engagement ring, a graduation ring, a decoder ring, or The One Ring to Rule Them All. Objects can be as important as characters. They can have backstories, meaning, and value to your plot. Know what objects are significant to your narrative and use them wisely to enhance your story ———————————————————————— #storytips #writing #writingtips #writeradvice #writersofinstagram #amwriting #writenow #writingcommunity #storyadvice #story #authortips #authorsofinstagram #authorlife #authorquotes #canadianauthor #canadianwriter #storytelling #storytellers #storyideas
#instawrimo day 25 @NaNoWriMo wanted a #themesong for my MC(s) I chose Veil of Elysium by @kamelotofficial for the idea that they will meet again. youtube link here https://youtu.be/JEch2Zdq7b0 I have written many short stories and drabbles about Marisha and Mikhail, this will be my first attempt at writing a full-length novel about them. These 2 are tied together, for better or worse, forevermore. #nanowrimo #instawrimoday25 #instawriters #writersofig #writersofinsta #writersofinstagram #veilofelysium #kamelot #femalewriter #canadianwriter #nanopreptime #nanoprep #charactertheme

I love when I wake up to memories of what I was doing a few years back. This was one of the things I loved about living in Warsaw. My morning coffee dates with my husband.

#instawrimoday24 @NaNoWriMo wanted an Atmospheric Building so I chose the St. Luke's Hospital Lunatic Asylum open from 1751-1916 not an exact match for the location for the Asylum in my book (Habsburg Empire) but in the correct time period :) the #finsburycircus is what sits here in modern #London now . . . #instawrimo #nanoprep #nanopreptime #instawriters #oldbuilding #insaneasylum #sanatorium #victorian #victorianasylum #instawrimochallenge #writing #femalewriter #canadianwriter #historicalfiction #femalewriters #writersofig #writersofinsta #writersofinstagram

Where the water meets the land. It's as if someone drew a straight line and divided these two worlds. One reflects the other and on the surface they appear the same, yet each is its own unique ecosystem. They remain, however, forever joined because one cannot live without the other. . . . . . #styleontheside #naturephoto #dreamsmatter #dreamingbig #canadianwriter #canadianblogger #torontowriter #torontoblogger #writingislife #writersociety #write_on #writingmybook #writingprompts #writinginspiration #writersoninstagram #writingmystory #writerscorner #seeingthepretty #visualjournal #storiesmatter #storyoftheday #storiesthatmatter #storiesuntold #storiestotell #memoir #writingmymemoir #visualwriter #visualwritingprompt
As the days get colder and the night draws in, I wrap myself firmly around these arms of hope. I light a flame deep inside that illuminates a path away from the grief that fills the air around me. And with every ounce of strength I have, I hold on to myself and all that I have become. 🔗 — 📷 @___vphotography___ #bbcan7

How much is a beating heart worth nowadays?
I've been less attentive on this account than I used to be. I also haven't written much in over a month and I stopped working on my second book Love Notes, because my novels will never be just poetry. They're a story, from beginning to end. Instead of randomly placed work. I also haven't been in the best place and I'm understanding now that it's okay to not be okay sometimes. ♡ Second Chances, really touched on being able to grow from whatever rock bottom is to you and come up stronger and better than when you were on the ground. Which is why I've been working on a new project. My absence will still stand over the next week or so. I will be back soon with new work from Love Notes and my new projects. ♡ Remember, it is never too late to reinvent yourself or do something you love. Xo #jsaunders

For day 23 of #instawrimo 's #mysteriousobject we ponder the mysterious chimes (or bells) that accompany any true match pair in my series #familiarscalling These chimes are unique to each pair and mysterious in the fact that no one but the Dozhan (doze-han) knows what they are for, why they ring and why certain two pairs have eerily similar tones. . . #bells #chimes #mysterious #mysteriousitem #writersofinstagram #tinkletinkle #storyplotting #nanoprep #septemberchallenge #instagramchallenge #eerilysimilar #canadianwriter #canadianauthor #indieauthor #nanowrimo

Take ownership of your life and the decisions you make. Don’t sit back and wait for circumstances to change on their own. Don’t place your fate in someone else’s hands. Don’t give them control over your mind and your emotions. 🔮 If you want something, make a plan and stick to it. Stay focused. Work hard for everything you want. Push yourself beyond your comfort zone and the barriers you’ve set. Break the shackles of fear and limitation. Don’t allow anything to hold you back and prevent you from reaching your full potential. ✨ You’re never too young or too old to follow your dreams. It’s never too soon or too late to live the life you’ve always wanted. 👇🏼 In order to achieve greatness, you have to believe that you can do anything you set your mind to. The only thing that possibly stands in your way is the outside influences that threaten to silence your desire to succeed. But even then, you always have the final say.
