1.) It is okay to be yourself, to drift with your soul, to lay in peace.

Drifting on the cloud of imagination,

my bohemian soul,

finds peace

2.) It is okay to be sad, to be mad, to cry when the heart is heavy…it’s okay to let go, okay to be human.

That day…

The world forgot to be kind,

and you forgot to be patient,

and in between figuring out who you were,

and where you came from,

and why you were here,

the clouds of life,

poured on you,

and your heart cried with the rain…

but,

when it was over,

and though the world did not change,

you felt lighter and soul felt cleansed,

and you noticed the smiles among the frowns,

and drenched in what was your pain,

you found that little piece of joy again,

you followed the rainbow of life.

3.) It is okay to be happy and to follow your dreams.

Today I am happy
chasing puddles
of the light heart…
splashing water
on my dreams
waking them to life…

Today I am happy
drifting away…
on the moonbeam
of hope
along sunshine
on forgotten meadows

doing nothing…

but chasing puddles
of the light heart
splashing water
on my dreams
waking them to life
today, I am happy.

4.) It’s okay to love and be grateful for what you have

In my attempt,

to get away from here

to find solace…

I found myself, grateful,

for all the love,

that surrounds me.

5.) It is okay to pray and to find the light in your heart amidst darkness and to find hope with each dawn.

Let me find hope…

In the gentlest of whispers,

which stops the  loudest of screams,

in the deepest of love,

where my heart can lean,

and find its way back from the darkest nights,

as I lay my mind, on the first morning light…

let me find hope.

Did you really learn,

Hi Everyone,

I thought I would make a post where we can all share our best blogging tips with the community, as to what works and what doesn’t…Of course there is no one best tip, as different things work for different people…but I thought this could be helpful for both new and seasoned bloggers 🙂 Please place your tip in the comment section so we can get a good discussion going …I will start it off with a couple of mine that has worked for me…

1.) Be passionate about the material you post on the blog.  Write  with conviction… I feel that helps  transfer your love for what you are sharing with your readers.

2.) Communicate with other bloggers if you get the time…It means so much to see a comment on your post…so try and leave your thoughts on what you have read if you get the time…
