If we were having coffee right now…

If we were having coffee right now…

I’ll tell you that haters gonna hate.
Yes, you’ll feel the hurt.
Go ahead and feel.
Don’t immediately shh your heart.
Don’t tell your heart to feel like this, or don’t feel like this.
Don’t create a dichotomy between your heart and mind; they are one faculty.
Acknowledge the hurts.
But, don’t overstay there.
Don’t ruminate.
Examine why you are feeling this or that way.
Allow healing to take place.
Then, at your own pace, take one step at a time to move forward.


20 days writing prompt series. Day eleven: A cup of coffee

Rest in peace

I’m staring out of my hotel room window. The sound of kids laughing and playing in the swimming pool is audible even from 22 floors above. A contrast to my sadden heart as I just learnt of a friend who has suddenly passed away and gone home to the Lord.


20 days writing prompt series. Day ten: Let the scene write itself

I wonder how it would be like if I have more time to write.

Would I write daily?
Would I be happier?
What would I write about?
Would I be a copywriter?
Would I be a happy copywriter?
Would I make a living being a writer?
Would I write and travel?
Would I use my writing to honour God?
Would I use my writing to honour people?
Would I ever get to write more in this life?


20 days writing prompt series. Day nine: Writing and not writing

A letter to my fleeting mind when I’m supposed to write.

Dear you,
You are supposed to write a blog post for your Every Day Inspiration writing challenge. Instead, you are searching for yet another new WordPress template for this blog, drinking coffee, eating peanuts, reading articles, and doing a whole lot of musing. Anything but writing a deserving post for today’s writing prompt of ‘write a post in letter format’.

Sigh.

Yours truly,
Me
