Golden Moments

Pessimism has always been easy for me, a normal part of life for as long as I can remember. A childhood painted with hues of distrust and disappointment. A life of overwhelming chaos and destruction. A life which simply seemed easier if I never expected anything. Expecting nothing allowed for moments of happy surprise – golden moments of peace. I considered myself a realist.

A Beautiful Mind

So here I sit, once again – full of thoughts and ideas. Incomplete thoughts and scattered ideas but they are mine. Something no one can take away from me (or can they).

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

Do you ever feel odd or peculiar? Or like you just don’t fit? I do! Here’s the thing though; I don’t remember feeling this way when I was younger.
