Gloriously Entwined

In the wee hours of the night

If you look intently you might

See the world of fantasy

Just a glance across a balcony 

To be just a moment in time

When you are not sure to find

The glitter and shine of fairy lights 

That twinkle around like ice

On trees and flowers around 

As Mother Nature touches down

Making a splendid world of imagination

A beautiful magical expression

Transforming all you know

Into a paradise to bestow

All the thoughts and dreams

That have their very own scenes

Into the moon glow of the hourglass sand

Moving through something so grand

As the distant memories of your mind

To find it all gloriously entwined

Using Anxiety to Create

Such a great article on Creativity and Anxiety.  About learning to use your anxiety for your creativity.  Something that I feel is definitely beneficial for me and thought others might feel the same.

It’s called :

Keys to Creativity: Using anxiety to create.

“Anxiety can be a double edged sword: it can either help you move forward or keep you stuck and paralyzed. Creativity and anxiety share a commonality: possibility. When we create we push the boundaries of the norm, of what’s acceptable, we experiment with ideas and dismantle the boxes imposed by family and society in order to reach the realm of possibility. Similarly, anxiety is the reaction some of us experience in the face of potentiality and possibility. We become anxious when we know little or nothing about something, as a way to defend ourselves in the face of the big unknown. Creativity is brought forth by embracing the unknown. This is the crucial point when you are presented with the opportunity to choose: remain “protected” by your anxiety and stay stuck, plunge into the unknown, or use anxiety as transportation to your creative place.”

Opposites attract: 4/25 by The Haunted Wordsmith

Today’s word: pretty

Antonyms: disagreeable, pleasureless, unpalatable, unpleasant, unwelcome

*********************************************************************

I really thought she was pretty when I first saw her.  Then, coming face to face with her, I found out how unpleasantly disagreeable she is and how unwelcoming to others she behaves.  I have a whole new opinion on the matter.

Music Monday, sharing

Music Monday

Well, I was going to participate in a weekly music challenge but by copy/pasting what was in the challenge, it wasn’t letting me paste my music videos.

Soooo….I am deciding to instead share my favorite music of the week.  No challenge, no worries, no frustration.  Because, yes, I was getting majorly frustrated! LOL!

Here are my faves I have found today while looking and listening:

Found Rachel and had heard this song before but not the others of hers and now I have the album from 2016! 🙂

Listening to Bishop in the car today, wide open! It’s amazing how music can move through you and make you feel better.  Like it’s bursting from you when pumping through the car speakers. 😉

Nina is a new artist I found a couple weeks ago.  Awesome strong voice and love this song.  Kinda hit me.

Only sharing three today.  Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Have a great week!! ❤
