Attitude of Gratitude May 13 2020

Thank you, for your Attitude of Gratitude:

At times we question our emotions or even attempt to control them believing emotions are a sign of weakness. This can be toxic leaving us truly weak.

Affirmation:  I embrace my emotions with gratitude!

 I love you, Annette Rochelle Aben

Steel Myself #writephoto

In response to Sue Vincent’s weekly #writephoto prompt of this week: Web


It was my suit of armor, the web of lies I wove. Couldn’t let them get to know the real me for then they would surely leave. I was a more interesting person with the lies. I felt powerful.

Shield yourself from the pain of rejection. Never allow them to walk away first. Don’t give them the power of thinking they have your number!

When I choose to, I can peel off the armor and free myself of the weight of it all. But who am I fooling? It’s just another lie I tell to make myself feel strong.

Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge #277 River & Path

A river of tears

Flowing freely from within

Clears a path for joy

hopping happiness


There is

A bunny

Eating flowers

Outside the window

Unaware of the show

It is providing for those

Struck inside in their wheelchairs

Who sit and wait all day long to see

A bunny come by to eat the flowers

She prays

Every day

This is the week

She gets to go home

She’s been here eight weeks now

The frustration has begun

No one tells her the same story

They all shrug their shoulders when she asks

Please, tell me when you will let me go home
