When it rains”
When it rains it sometimes pours…
If it were raindrops falling on my head I’d find my friend, my companion, my greatest strength near.
If the rain were steady and thunder cast lightning I’d hear his voice whisper subtle in my ear saying “this too shall pass.”
Days of thunder can appear with such madness. Whereas he can be found near with such comfort of warm gentle hands, a hug to keep the storms formation away from one’s demise.
Perhaps God’s will silenced the withering storm as it unsurpassed the pastures left behind unscathed. The storm that could have flooded the earth now surrenders to the sound of harmony under a willow tree from afar.
It is there he sat under this old willow tree looking up into the sky as the clouds lifted. The glimmer of sun shines through the scatter clouds as the storm settled embarked onto another journey.
It is there under this willow tree he rested, waiting, anticipating my arrival from afar left undone, dry in the musk left behind.
I walk this distance from afar and sat next to him with my head leaned into his shoulder. I closed my eyes as he placed his hand gently on mine and said “the storm has passed yet another day.”

“There were times I found myself wandering from my home day or night without so much as a thought placed into my actions. My actions drifted into somewhat of a Parallel relativity while on automatic pilot.
Scarlett as everyone called me came from a nickname I’d come to be known. As some would say I carried myself through life-like a scar on the meadows jagged edge, past due beyond the shadows of gravesites; clinging onto things never intended by others to withstand.
My mind capture in a place of distortion wondering about Jake, my love, trapped in a paralleled abnormalities; in state of doubts subconsciously.
It would be those shadows of doubts that lingered everywhere I went as everything in my life was in limbo or parallel to unfortunate circumstances.”
I carry value in philosophy when it comes to motivation and setting goals. I am a freelance writer, motivational life coach within the community. My work extends into social media networking and barriers that sometimes keeps a person stuck pondering endlessly from time-to time. Mindfulness has become a way of life for me and I share my experiences with those whom seek to find a meaningful balance in life. Finding ways to cope with life stressors, as well, to think outside the box. To place understanding into a different perspectives when hindered by ones own fleeting thought process or collective barriers beyond interpersonal communication. To better understand OCD and other mental health factors one may find difficult to understand. To define meaning into the theory of all things that may place ones thought process into state doubts; questions one may desire to find and/or at times embrace their own burden of truths. For one to find willingness to know that sometimes thoughts serve no other purpose than to simply be fleeting and/or thoughts that do not warrant an emotional response. To allow ones thoughts to freely pass and stay in the present moment.
Lets take a walk into the world of mindfulness…
This video is a two-part series to Arts & Eating Disorders in partnership with The Emily Program Foundation & The International OCD Foundation on separate occurrences from 2015 through 2017.
As time went by I added a video to contribute to the poem read on the video that was made though donations for The Emily Program Foundation.
However this documentary address other coexisting psychological condition referenced towards OCD & Eating Disorders. One that proved to be quite challenging to overcome. I walked a path for years on fears alone and I can say with certainty that this proved to be a powerful source. After all fear can be quite a motivating factor and relentless at the very least. Not to long I submitted an article to The International OCD Foundation and received a welcoming response of acceptance. The article is based on living with OCD and tools I’ve learned throughout the years to maintain a healthier quality of life.
“OCD; Trapped in compulsive modes, wrapped within unwanted thoughts and fearsome images”
By Marsha Beede
Is it possible for the unimaginable to happen to you? Where one day you wake from a deep cloud, a decade later, only to find life has passed you by? An unhealthy sense of fears, shame and guilt that was never yours to own, but rather you may have carried sorrows, regrets and pains of others that became so deep that fears and images lay within you and depleted every effort you made?
This can happen too many and it did happen to me…

Spiritual Path in Distress”
When it comes to human behavior, actions in regards as to how a person responds to a crisis mode in their lives may at times mimic a cluster of personal distress of destruction. A crisis can condition a person to stray far from stabilization in any manner within actions. This doesn’t necessarily change or modify a person’s elevated state of being but rather dysfunction may occur.
It is often said when it comes to addictions, mental illness, one may survive at a bare minimal in times of struggles. One’s ability to maintain a faction of hope strays far, just enough to keep a person on solid ground; living moment-by-moment in any given circumstances where there are shadows of doubts…
If you know of a love one whom may be struggling with mental health seek help through a mental health professional or call a crisis hotline in your area because it’s never too late.
“Change starts with ones action; to become unglued and resilient to change on ones perspective views towards a better quality of life”
