Measuring Success

In the Arena

Growing up as the granddaughter of a well known small town farmer, I often heard the phrase, “Oh, your Rayford’s youngest grandbaby, so nice to meet you”- The introductions often followed with a story about how Grandpa helped Mr. Davis down the street fix his tractor or paying someone’s meal at Finn & Feather’s(the only restaurant in town) or giving a days work in exchange for a crate of cabbage and ‘maters to a family who fell on hard times. He was a kind, gentle yet hard working man of deep Faith.

As my brother and I grew older, we would hear him often say, “The Lord helps me breathe easier- Your Grandma helps me breathe easier-The men who fight for our country, help me breathe easier- The food we grow out there( as he peers out the window) helps me breathe easier.”

This is how he chose to live…

My Experience at an Anime Convention

One More Shot Please!

ONE MORE SHOT PLEASE

I peeked around the corner of the street and there they were. Hundreds of odd looking anime characters. Some presumably schoolgirls, and others, disturbingly ugly creatures that you’d think would haunt you in your nightmares during the depths of the night.

As a complete outsider to the Japanese culture (19 and I just had my first successful attempt at sushi) and having barely any anime knowledge, I walked into the eighth largest anime convention in North America, wearing what is my failed attempt to cosplay Lulu Bell from D. Gray Man. Who is Lulu? Don’t ask me, because I went with the idea after simply Googling “easy cosplay ideas” and there she was.

This event from April 7- April 9 at the George R. Brown Convention Center covered three floors of everything from cosplay, music, fashion, anime, to art and collectibles. It was overwhelming to say the least but I…

Climbing…

Cyranny’s Cove!

Cyranny's cove

via Daily Prompt: Climbing

Half-Dome8-740x493.jpg

My Dear,

I went hiking the other day. Alone. I followed your footprints, engraved in the rock, followed the path, you had walked so long ago. Looking for traces of your past, left innocently along the road… Remains of the man you were becoming, souvenirs of the boy that is no more…

My legs hurt, as I ascended, slowly, but surely. Each step I took, made me ache and wonder. Wonder if it was crazy, wonder if I was. But I kept putting one foot in front of the other, clinging at the rock wall as the way got steeper. And my doubts faded little by little.

“Pity me, for I am a fool for you” you once said, but I was the fool climbing my way laboriously… Beating my body. Wanting to light the slightest spark of pride in your eyes, by all means possible…

Getting Fit For Forty!

Getting Fit For Forty

If you had taken the time to read my last post you will have seen that I had decided to attempt to write a “Bucket List”. This is something I haven’t done before and also when considering what to include in it, I realised I wasn’t sure even how to get started.

I mean, writing a “Bucket List” is a personal list of things to achieve before you die. A list of things that are seemingly unachievable during your daily routine but are things you aim to have achieved should you be given the opportunity. This therefore should be fairly straight forward right? Then why am i struggling to come up with some of them?

I believe the majority of people who take the time to read this post will have agreed with my last statement and will naturally be sat there thinking, yeah so what…Why cant you get…

I cannot Measure the Love I Treasure

My Loud Bipolar Whispets!

My Loud Bipolar Whispers

I cannot measure

the love I treasure…

I love my three children beyond measure and much more

than there are words to express and convey the deep love I feel for them,

but that is who I am.

When I do things and how I do them is usually too much,

going beyond what I need to do,

but that is who I am.

When I speak it is usually too much,

using more words than I needed to use to express what I needed to say,

but that is who I am.

When I speak it is usually too fast,

putting my words together very quickly matching my rapid thoughts inside my mind,

but that is who I am.

When I feel emotions, I feel them much deeper and much more.

When I feel love, I feel love much deeper and much more.

When I feel happiness, I feel abundant euphoria and much more.

When I feel sadness, I feel sorrow much deeper…
