Phoenix Girl (Something You’d Say to an Ex)

I’m slowly chipping away
At the pieces of me you left behind
Rising from the ashes
Like a phoenix ready to shine.


This was written for the prompt : Something you would say to an Ex. So, this applies to all your ex-friends, family and boyfriends/girlfriends. I’m sure there are all kinds of exes you leave behind, or who left you behind. This can be a motivational post because it would give you the push and inspiration to look ahead and be so much more than the person you were in the past.

Wise Words Wednesday 1.3.17

“A star falls from the sky and into your hands. Then it seeps through your veins and swims inside your blood and becomes every part of you. And then you have to put it back into the sky. And it’s the most painful thing you’ll ever have to do and that you’ve ever done. But what’s yours is yours. Whether it’s up in the sky or here in your hands. And one day, it’ll fall from the sky and hit you in the head real hard and that time, you won’t have to put it back in the sky again.”

C. JoyBell C.

Knowing and having. Not having and grieving are are all part of life. Sometimes we lose the one thing we hold most dear. But it doesn’t mean that we can never have it back. We learn that we should cherish the present, live in the moment and appreciate all that we’ve been blessed with. Have a great day! 🙂

Feeding The Right Wolf

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson
about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said, “My son, the battle is between
two “wolves” inside us all.

One is Evil.
It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed,
arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies,
false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good.
It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute
and then asked his grandfather:
“Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee simply replied,
“The one you feed.”
