Mnemonic is the theme for NaBloPoMo August 2014. Since most of this blog is largely based on observations, I have to be careful when it comes to how I document the observations that later become blog posts. I’ve lost so many possible blog posts that were initially flashes of inspiration.
I’m pretty excited to spend this month discussing memories. Have pen and paper and/or electronic device(s) ready folks. You may want to take notes.
Imagine being friends with someone for years. The two of you are extremely close. Those around you swear that there’s more to the friendship because you both are so in tune with one another.
The lines become blurred. You don’t see each other the same way anymore. Can’t really pinpoint when and why this is happening but you know something is pulling you both in.
It is in this moment that you realize that you’ve fallen in love.
So many thoughts.
What if he/she doesn’t feel the same way? But what if he/she feels the same? Where do we go from here? Can we go back to being just friends? Is it worth possibly losing a friend if this doesn’t work out?
Despite the uncertainty, your conscious wants you to do one thing: Surrender.
When I think of “live simply”, a few things come to mind:
– Not worrying about the things that are beyond my control.
– Using resources provided by Mother Nature for health and home.
– Being appreciative of every sunrise and sunset I am blessed to witness.
– Creating memories with those that I cherish.
You hold all of my secrets, fears, random thoughts, and memories. When emotions become so heavy that sleep is no longer peaceful, I share all with you.
I keep you hidden. Others won’t understand the contents of your pages, judging what they see on the surface.
I’m thankful for the volumes that silently hold so much.
