And this is my current mood. My man is spending a night or three in hospital and I’m such a sad sack without him. We are still young in our heads, but our bodies sure aren’t in as many mosh pits anymore (unless you’re @nickcaveofficial
), but we’re still thick as thieves and have barely spent more than a week apart in 20 years. Sending healing to those who need it most tonight and understanding to the loved ones who have to remain strong in such trying times. xx Artist?
About 4 months ago I received a message from someone asking to purchase a bass from me on Facebook Marketplace he made note it was his dream bass. We agreed on a time the transaction would be made and when that time came he had had a loss in his family. I told him that I would keep the bass for him and that it was still his. We moved the purchase date again but when the time came it was a trying time for both of us. It was then that I found out he did beautiful woodworking. I said that I would be willing too keep holding the bass for him and that I would be willing to trade for one of his creations. He asked me what I had always wanted or if I needed anything and I said a music studio desk - but also said that it was too large of a project. He disregarded that and said he would build me one. I was skeptical on whether or not he would follow through, as most people these days never ever would. He kept saying he was working on it, and he was telling the truth. Four months later, full of trying times for both of us, I gave him the bass, and he gave me this beautiful solid Pine and Cherry desk. Sometimes it’s worth it to trust someone, although rare, the outcome can be a dream come true. Thank you Tom Abbott for your amazing craftsmanship and for following through! If everyone was like you the world would be a great place.

SUP - the perfect combination for a lazy sporty spice like me :) love it!!
When you’ve had one of the hardest, most challenging, emotional and difficult weeks of your life and then you get to work and find this in your drawer before setting up tools for the day. Incredibly grateful for such amazing friends and colleagues. Little things like this make a huge difference. In a world when you can be anything, be kind. I had to look away so I wouldn’t cry. Thank you. You don’t know how much this helped today. And now, looking forward to a week off and much self care to re charge and come back stronger and ready to rock 🤟🏼 #dontbeeyecandy #besoulfood #tryingtimes #kindnessconquersall #grateful #blessed #catbread #catloaf #tasty
Firm believer in what you think will flow ✨ Start smiling through the hardships! Surround yourself with believers. Start meditating and eating clean + living foods. Exercise daily, whether it be yoga, basketball, or hitting the weights. Start traveling more so you can visually see and understand your trying times might just be miniscule to what’s really going on out here. This helps keep me grounded and positive to problem solve my situations instead of complaining and negativity. Try it out, you’ll FEEL the shift 👊
Today we've read books, sang songs, sorted shapes, completed jigsaws, read more books, had a failed nap (20 minutes?! What do you call that Sophia?!), and painted. In between some smiles, she's screamed and cried her eyes out for most of the day. She's a little bit constipated so I understand why.
So, we're back to the movicol at the moment but I must have changed about 8 nappies with tiny amounts of poo each time 😩 If I wasn't pregnant I'd be pouring out some prosecco tonight once she's asleep!! Let's hope we get happy Sophia back soon! #daughter #18monthsold #toddlerdays #tryingtimes
•DAY & NIGHT•
When time seems to come to a stop...!
In difficult times,we don't seem to see the silver lining of our dark cloud. "This world should just come to an end"... Some would say, "why was I born in the first place,if I would suffer this much?"...others would say,forgetting He only tests HE WHO HE LOVES.Just as our fingerprints are different,so are our PROBLEMS & SUCCESS stories.
As a young adult,one of the pearls I have... is appreciating I have problems & I talking to MY CREATOR about it 247...the crying,moaning,unexpressed emotions...HE UNDERSTANDS ALL & HE IS THE ONLY ONE CAPABLE OF SOLVING ALL IN DIFFERENT MAGNIFICENT WAYS!
The days that make or break you are like NIGHT & DAY. Night comes after day as Solutions comes after problems.Your Nights prepares you for your Days...if your night is not well spent,you may not enjoy your day. Night is usually short-lived but the sleep we get makes it look long-lived...so are the days that break us...We look at them as INFINITE days.
No matter the amount of light used at night,the room can never be bright like during the day...but THE LIGHT MAKES A DIFFERENCE. The light stands for our STRENGTH...No matter how strong & enduring you are,you need more strength during your trying period than your Bright period. Being Strong & prayerful reduces the outcome of Darkness such as suicide.
Another pearl I have is...EVERYONE HAVE A PROBLEM...some of us are more secretive than others BUT GOD SOLVES ALL,through people you may or may not know. Before going to man...including your family &religious leaders...BOW TO GOD! How sure are you that the people you're running to aren't the cause of your problems,that they aren't happy you have them? "During difficult times...I PRAY,PRAY & PRAY"... @teminisuccess1
Let's try washing our dirty linen INDOORS. THE WORLD CANT KNOW IF YOUR LIPS ARE NOT APART!!!I sincerely hope this article enlightens someone...somewhere... Somehow
MUCH LOVE😘😘😘 #Godfirst #tryingtimes #problemsandsolutions #problemsharedishalfsolved #keepdoinggood
Mercury Retrograde in Leo / Dysfunctional Relationships
Relationships can be totally one sided at times.
Well the unhealthy ones.
Healthy relationships are all about a balance of give and take, of compassion and mutually understanding of the depths of each other’s souls.
Relationships are dysfunctional because both parties that are involved are not willing to listen and respect another's position or opinion.
I don’t know many people that are very interested in what someone else really thinks or how they really feel inside. In general, people seem to be waiting for a break in the conversation for their turn to speak and get their own words, thoughts and feelings across.
So here’s a little self-check assessment question….. Do you ever really inquire as to what someone actually means or do you just skim on the surface?
Fulfilling relationships are not surface deep. Fulfilling relationships are about diving deep into the unknown and finding meaning in what someone is really trying to say. It is about clarifying and reiterating the words spoken back to the person, so that it acknowledges your understanding of what is trying to be said. It is not about getting your point across or waiting for your turn to speak.
Relationships are about relating. How do you relate to others?
If you do one thing today, I ask that you really pay attention to the words someone else is speaking. Think about how you would like to be heard and be that for someone else.
Relationships can be complicated and hard enough to deal with right? So imagine how these hectic and challenging energies are effecting us right now with Mercury being in retrograde!

There are days when I’m ready to strangle him because he won’t act right. 🤬Then, there are days I just don’t know what I’d do without him! ❤️
The closer we get to his sister’s birth I can’t help but to think about how he’s my first, my baby, my son..... I get a little anxiety because I don’t want our bond to be changed. 😫
This child truly gave me life. YOU DON’T HEAR ME THO🗣🗣🗣 He changed me in every way possible and to him I will be forever grateful. I may have birthed him and gave him his life, but he gave me my purpose. 🤱🏽💕
Proof of storms
In a bright time
Even storms are beautiful
In its destruction, we romanticize
We live in illusions
Of never-ending storms
We enjoy rainbows
A bright thought
After heavy showers
We look at dark skies
Wondering when the sun shall shine again
We know for sure, storms don’t last forever
Or do they?
They’ve always been temporary
The winds come and blow
Thunder booms and cracks
Lightning flashes and blinds
We still believe,
The sun shall shine on us once again
It is said, (Vivian Greene, 2006)
Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass,
it’s about learning to dance in the rain.
So why lose hope,
Dance in the rain,
Learn to live, even when in pain
Whatever has come, shall pass
So have hope and believe
Shall come to an end.
