Sometimes no words are needed, just a breath and a moment to feel alive. Happy Friday! Gabriela A Tejada **Follow my Twitter @Astropoet22 ** All Images were taken by me, unless stated otherwise.

Mi Mar

As many of you who follow my writing know, very few places bring me peace and true joy outside of nature.  As a young girl, I remember the excitement that the sea would bring me, not so much the suntan lotion and crowded beach parties, but just the beauty and energy of its vastness. My…

26

26. Up until this point, I’ve been excited. Each year has been a stepping stone to what’s to come, and this one is the first where I genuinely feel a difference. Maybe a bit intimidated, anxious about what’s to come. From 18 to 21, I was a young woman excited about the thought of freedom and becoming an adult. Yet, still…

2020

2021, I am truly blessed for the opportunity to live and experience your waves. I have learned to float, and I am excited to swim in your oceans of unknowns. As I jump feet first without hesitation, I am ready to be enveloped by your waters. In 2021 I plan to JUMP. This month we…

December 24

I had originally written this immediately after the fact (October 2020), but somehow I lost it. I don’t remember where I wrote it, where I saved it, or much of what I wrote, but three months after the fact, I can say that instead of feeling upset, I’m happy.  Have you ever reflected on something that for…

December

This month comes with a lot of changes, but I’m inspired! I find that I thrive most when uncomfortable. I’m moving to a new state, not far, but still different. With this new state comes new everything.New love,New adventures,New people,New beginnings!With an open heart, I ready myself by purging all of the old and negative…

Wednesday, the 28th

The world works in mysterious ways, but God always has a plan for us. We don’t always understand, but in the end, everything does happen for a reason. I wish you all a beautiful Wednesday!

Saturday, the 24th

My anxiety has been suffocating lately..  all consuming.  It wraps around me tightly, painfully, yet passionately.  Like a toxic lover, it holds me in a morbid but gentle embrace. We become so used to the comfort of our pain and traumas that anything but constant discomfort and anguish frightens us.  I think the reason why…

Wednesday, the 21st

A photograph taken in a moment of uncertainty and dread.  While beautiful, behind the camera, were distressed eyes filled with worry and heartbreak. How often do we take a moment to think about the person behind the lens, behind the pen..? It’s Wednesday, that means we are halfway through another week. So far, I’ve been…

October, 19th

As I softly close my eyes, I’m teleported back to that moment in the mountains. It was excruciatingly cold that day, but we didn’t care. The pain was worth being surrounded by nature’s beauty. That moment of gratitude and silence will always be worth it. There is just something so divine about how nature makes…

Tuesday, the 13th

I was standing on the pier last night, looking over the edge at the dark sea, and like usual, all I wanted was to Jump. I have this fascination with the ocean, a quite wicked one, but I believe it’s just very intimate. I’ve always loved the open waters, the sounds, and smells, but the…
