Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete? Proving nature's laws wrong, it learned to walk without having feet. Funny, it seems to by keeping it's dreams; it learned to breathe fresh air. Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else even cared.

Acho que não falo só por mim quando digo que o Papa Francisco veio dar um novo ânimo à Igreja. E, por conseguinte, veio dar-nos uma nova perspetiva e uma nova força à nossa fé.
A sua simplicidade, a sua humildade e o seu passado dramático mostraram-nos que uma nova era começou com o seu papado. Habituado a tempos problemáticos e a lidar com diversas situações, o Papa Francisco não recua quando tem de se pronunciar sobre um dado assunto, mesmo quando este envolve responsáveis da Igreja. E isso fez aumentar a nossa confiança e a nossa fé, pois vimos que a era do silêncio acabou.
O ser humano não gosta de assistir ao silêncio dos seus líderes perante assuntos que dizem respeito a todos. E, talvez por isso, o Papa Francisco fala de tudo, embora tenha muito cuidado com as palavras que usa. Mas este cuidado é essencial para evitar interpretações erradas e isto era algo que todos devíamos fazer. Porque, às vezes, não medimos bem o peso que as nossas palavras têm nos outros.
Por último, resta-me agradecer ao Papa Francisco pelo maravilhoso ser humano que é, pela nova onde fé que trouxe ao mundo e pela nova perspetiva que nos deu. Ainda há muito trabalho para fazer, problemas para resolver e assuntos para falar, contudo, o passo que demos em frente muito dificilmente pode ser ignorado. E desejo que outros líderes mundiais sigam o exemplo do Papa Francisco, sobretudo no que diz respeito às atitudes e às palavras que dirigem aos outros. Pois com a atitude certa e com a palavra certa muita coisa mudar e exemplo disso é este papado.

This was home a couple weeks ago a little before it had rained I think and it reminded me of today because it rained here where I am too (not home tho)!! it rained long and hard and the winds went at it the same way and though I didn’t need to say it out loud I knew it was the perfect weather to have a day after you spent 15 minutes bawling your eyes out for absolutely no reason. Because that was what I did yesterday, and I don’t know what brought it on and I don’t know how it stopped but happen it did and it was something because I felt sad and confused and lost. but i just couldn’t figure out for the life of me why or how. what is the point of telling you this? nothing. i just hope that you too have days after you have cried that make things a little better even if they are ephemeral, even if they have the lifespan of a snowflake falling in the heat. i hope you get to experience tears of all kinds because that’s really when you know you can take anything and because hey, nothing is perfect right? I feel like writing a lot of things and there’s no guarantee they’ll be good or sensible things but they are things, and I feel I have unburdened even if a little. im sorry if you were on the receiving end of it. i only hope you have a rainy/pre-rainy day where you are to make your heart full of everything whether it be sadness or happiness, but it make your heart full just so you can feel.
While you’re doing all this please stream @taylorswift Lover because it is the epitome of magic and glitter and rainbows that weigh on your heart more than you think it would. ily. ...
I am sitting here on a morning of light mist; watching the sails bob and imagining I can hear their jangle from my desk, and I am overtaken by a feeling a gratitude: to be a woman, alive, with a creative life and an inner life and the freedom- oh the freedom- to roam. I am thinking: I am the first generation of women in my line who has had this freedom, and what a privilege that is- to have gone to college, to have travelled, to be untied to the labour of a kitchen or the 'duties' of a wife, to have a desk and a pen and the whole space of a day opening up before me; that I get to choose to turn to the page, and to my words and the worlds therein. I am listening to 'Sonderling' by Joep Beving on repeat. It is the perfect soundtrack to the beauty of it all. So this morning, from my desk, I am sending waves of thanks, feeling the women in my blood cheering us all on, wishing us on, living part of their life through us, onwards and onwards through the waves of our words, our creative acts, our inner lives and the moulding and meltings of our hearts into new life-giving forms.
And if you don’t have a day today, do you have an hour, do you have five minutes, or a fraction of that, to honour the lineage in your limbs and the talent in your veins, to offer something outwards again, into the ether of the collective creative, into the great big quilt of life we all get to weave. We need your stitch in time. -- #creativity#writing#aroomofonesown#freedom#write#create#words#privilege#desk#studio#books
I am feeling quite emotional, I received this message from a reader of my book "Finding my way". (link in bio) They said: “This afternoon I devoured the book in the park, on the river and just finished it at home. I cried and I laughed. I was touched and inspired. I do not remember the last time I 'had to' finish a book in one go. Thank you and "Hwaiting" (Korean for support&encouragement). I believe that the universe guides us and brings/shows us things/situations that will help us, your book was exactly what I needed right now.”
Some thoughts I penned down a couple of years ago which even today are relatable for me and I think y’all would relate, too.
I basically wanted to express how the nights are way better than the days and how we’re the best version of ourselves at night.. All chill, free, thoughtful, and simple. FEEDBACKS WELCOME :)
내 사랑이 당신을 향한 데에는
거룩한 이유도 숨 가쁜 성급함도 없었습니다
그저 당신 쪽으로 흐르는 바람결의 목덜미 어디 즈음에
그 손 한번 잡아보길 원하는 낭창한 제 손 몰래 얹었을 뿐이고
그 입 한번 범해보길 원하는 부르튼 제 입 몰래 얹었을 뿐인데
그게 제가 이리도 많은 빛으로 산란하여
셀 수도 없는 빈도로 당신을 방문하게끔 하고
꽃의 붉은 향기니 아침의 맛있는 볕이니 하는 것들과 함께
당신의 들숨으로 재빨리 숨어들게 했답니다
설령 이 모든 일이 고작 남루한 저의 몸뚱어리 하나로는
보름달처럼 채 몇 밤도 건너가지 못하고서
힘없이 숨죽여야 할 만큼 고될지언정,
그리고 당신에게 닿기까지의 명확한 이정표라면
억겁의 시간인들 내 몸 하나 깎아내지 못할 리 없습니다
이렇듯 제게 사랑이란, 당신의 존재로부터
단 한 시도 등 돌리지 않는 것입니다

The medicine you seek is within you. Wild words grow lush in your wilderness. Harvest them. You are not the passive baby bird waiting on any kind of delivered meal. Be a connoisseur of thoughts and language. Select only those that make you heart purr. Draw the maple from your story tree. Leave the poison ivy where it grows. No matter how your day goes, determine how your inner honey flows. Let others drown in their chosen woes. Make your daily tea with petals of the tender rose. @jaiyajohn

i’m trying to be more forgiving towards myself. though some days may not go the way i want, it doesn’t mean i’ve failed. even though it feels like i did. it’s not always easy, but i’m trying. & i guess at the end of it all, that’s all we can do.
