Losing Someone

flower

Sometimes I just want to scream

I want to wake up from this dream

Because nothing feels the same

I thought we would take on the world together

But I was wrong

Everything changed

And I can’t fix it

I’m so scared

I wish I could bring you back

But sadly I can’t

What’s the point of loving someone if you’re just going to lose them

I can’t make new memories with you and that hurts the most

One day

That’s the motto

One day I will see you again

The hardest thing in this life is losing someone close to you and for the longest time nothing will be able to comfort you. It just feels so surreal and that you’ll wake up and everything will be back to normal, but it won’t. However, I will say that each day will get easier.

These Moments

I believe in the power of giving back.

I was able to find my calling through the help of a movie called the Dead Poets Society. In the movie a character played by Robin Williams said Carpe Diem or “Seize the day.”

Looking back at my life I realized that I hadn’t done much with it. So when I was given the opportunity to go to the Dominican Republic with a group called Blue Missions, I took it. It was one of the most amazing experiences and I enjoyed every moment of it.

While I was there, the group I was with helped a small town build a water & sanitation system within a week. And just seeing the smiles on their faces was enough for me.

If you still have air in your lungs, make every single breath count. Make a difference in this world. Seize the day and make it your own.

Morning Motivation

Here is a little food for thought:

Leave a lasting impression. I don’t mean touch every single person in this world, but at least touch someone. We can’t mean everything to everyone, but those few amazing, crazy, beautiful people we have in our lives, don’t ever let them go.

Dream big, dream small, live, don’t live, cry, be happy, smile, laugh, be sad, be angry. But whatever you are, be it. I hope this helped someone or maybe just helped me put my thoughts in perspective.

I just wanted to get a better sense of the things around me, the things I can or cannot control, the things I see, know or hear. I’m going to live, be happy, keep moving forward, and strive to be who I want to be.

In your life you’re going to make mistakes and that is perfectly fine. No one is perfect and if you believe you are, I certainly want to meet you. Embrace your flaws and then go from there.

Finding Love?

Where my single people at? *silence* “Oh that’s cool,” I said as I awkwardly walked away. It seems like everyone is in a relationship. You look left, you look right, you look up, you look down and for some reason everyone is in a relationship.

Then you’re out and about and you see this cute boy or girl and you’re thinking “Okurr, I see you,” and then all of a sudden their significant other walks up and all hope goes out the window. Why is everyone in a relationship? How did they meet each other? What do I have to do?

It can be frustrating at times. You’re just waiting for someone to come along, but everyone seems to be taken.

Okay, the first thing I want you to do, is take a deep breath. It’s going to be okay. I know you might want to be in a relationship now, but maybe it’s just not you’re time. I remember telling one of my friends when she was upset about not having anyone that “Maybe he hasn’t even be born yet.” Was that a bad joke? Very. Was she mad? Very.

Alright in all seriousness, I think for now you shouldn’t stress yourself out. I truly believe that there is someone out there for everyone. So I just think you should enjoy the moments of being single. I am and I excited for the future person I’ll meet.

Morning Motivation

I hope this morning motivation finds you well and if not, I do hope your day gets better.

On this fine morning I want to leave you with the last two lines from one of my favorite poems:

                                            Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
                                            To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

 

–Ulysses by Lord Alfred Tennyson

I really love these last two lines, because they cut so deep. Whenever I lose hope or feel defeated, I go back to this quote for inspiration.

I know that it’s so easy to give up and I may wallow for a bit, but when I do get up, you better watch out. I am more than a conqueror.

Using Scissors Cut the Word on Paper Impossible Become Possible

Don’t give up on the Job Search

The hardest part about graduating from college is finding a job. You spend hours and hours sending out your resume and you feel so hopeful. “Oh yeah, I got this.” Then weeks go by and you hear nothing. Okay this does sound discouraging, but you hold out and hope that something comes your way.

Then the emails with responses from these companies come back and you’re all excited. You open the email and it says: “We really loved your resume, but we decided to go with another candidate,” “The position has been filled and we will no longer be accepting applications for the this position,” “Unfortunately we have moved to the next step in our hiring process, and your application was not selected at this time.” I really love how these companies try and be nice about the rejection, but no matter what, it still hurts.

What did I do wrong? Did I not fit all the requirements?  What are you looking for? Did I not try hard enough? Seeing those responses time and time again can be discouraging and it feels like a waste of time.

I think the hardest part is seeing your friends with these amazing jobs and you’re wondering when yours is going to come. It really does suck, because you start questioning your capability and you never know why these companies did not want you.

I know that this post won’t affect everyone, but those who are affected, I’m with you. We’ll get though it together and somehow we’ll find the good in the situation. When I face these rejections I used to get so angry and feel so defeated, but I’ve come to realize that giving up won’t change my circumstances.

I know that I am smart, talented, and a fighter. So when I do get a rejection letter, I don’t see it as defeat, but instead I see it as an opportunity for something better to come along. And I’m going to tell you right now, that getting to that perspective did not come easily, but it will.

So just know, that your efforts are not in vain, please just hold on.
