You Are Someone’s World :)

Came across some positive quotes on #edmonton #highlevelbridge and this one made me stop. It is so important to tell this to a person with #suicidalthoughts ‘You are someone’s world’ I loved being there and read those quotes that can make a momentary change of mind. It can matter a lot when someone needs to hear them.

For some reason, this feels so close to my heart. I recall all the young lives I knew, vibrant and jovial, eventually lost to the excruciating pain that depression can bring. If only, there was someone there to tell them and remind them, that ‘They are someone’s world!’  Maybe they would have been alive and relieved to find more happiness in life. I can only wish now about what didn’t happen. But I can always remind everyone to be mindful of people around you. Maybe they need to be told exactly this to avert a disaster in their lives. Please think about it.
A few lines from me when life acts up with me…
“When life kicks you, you can either kick it back or kick yourself.
Often, I work harder to hit the life back but sometimes I lay in a heap of defeat, mustering the courage to wind-back in resilience.
Keep fighting till you can, keep holding always, AS YOU CAN.
It’s not wrong to hang your head down in defeat at times,
But do stand-up again when you can!”

As I continue my wanderings in my comfy shoes, I continue to share my physical and mental wanderings and ponderings, on Instagram and on my blog. Currently, the shoes remain the same and shall change when it’s too cold to wear them and when they eventually get worn off, to be replaced by another pair of comfy shoes to accompany me in my wanderings.


But the sleep didn’t come.

With my eyes closed,

I coursed through the deep night.

Wondering if it was sleep or

I dreamt with sleepless excitement.

I twisted and twirled,

Tossed all night while I lay.

I forced and I cursed,

Some cajoling didn’t help.

I waited and flipped,

Turned and curled,

But the sleep didn’t come.

Oh, the sweet sleep,

how much I care,

To be wrapped in your arms

And rest for the night.

But as deceptive as you were,

You decided to run away.

But the sleep didn’t come.

My Winter Wonderland

My winter wonderland

It’s white and it’s beautiful

The starry flakes are wonderful

As I watch the wonderland blur by

Sitting in the warm train crossing by

I marvel at the beauty

Falling flakes like cotton candy

Trees in apron soft white

Grass covered with silvery shine

I can’t take my eyes off

Sitting inside the warmth of the metal box

Air looks fuzzy, white and blurry

As snowflakes fall in a hurry

It looks like white sand of winter

But can’t touch it with bare hands ever

My winter wonderland is only to be seen

Never to be touched without a gloved hand

It’s a beauty for eyes and covered bodies

A Beauty that will numb your senses

And make you colder than ever

Never to be touched

But to be felt with your eyes

Or else you will have frozen hands and frost bites 😉

I dream of making snow balls and Olaf

With my little one bundled in layers

A cup of coffee

And some hot chocolate for him

A treat after we freeze ourselves

Like our cold dessert treat

We step out of our warm cocoon

And a rush of flurries cool my face

I close my eyes

And let a flake kiss my warm lips

It’s soothing  as the flakes melt on my face

As the chill meets the warmth of my body

And I walk in slowly and enjoy

Before it chills my bones

And I rush and hurry

A white furry cat peeks out

From a big window house

As mounds of snow transform

That little house to a dreamy way

We grin wide

And stick our tongues out

And drink the snowflakes falling down

Little white heaps on the bushes

Some more softness drooping the branches

Fresh cotton on trees

Pure white and soothing for eyes

It’s My Winter Wonderland

It is my Beautiful Edmonton!

Today I was out running errands, enjoying the snow from the warmth of the local transit, as it snowed all day. Me and my little on, we both marveled at the white beauty out city had turned into and then I jotted down some lines on my phone’s notepad. I thought I would share the poem with you all!

Which one is your favourite weather?
