August 1st

The amount of personal growth and self-reflection that I’ve done the last two/three years makes me proud. Now, I say that as a 26-year-old woman who still has a lot more life to live, but I’m grateful.  I plan on posting more this month. I want to be vulnerable and allow you all into my…

July 13th

Is it that I feel too much too fast, depleting all of my reserves, or that it just was never enough? I’m not sure, but slowly I’m finding out. Gabriela Tejada **Follow my Instagram @astronomicalpoet & Twitter @Astropoet22 ** All images were taken by me unless stated otherwise.

May 27th

The way that the clouds slowly glide across the warm blue of the late spring sky is what inspires me to continue taking slow deep breaths of self reflection, and curiosity. I’m back.  Gabriela Tejada **Follow my Instagram @astronomicalpoet & Twitter @Astropoet22 ** All images were taken by me unless stated otherwise.

Winter

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…

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…

Monday, the 12th

Today is Monday, the 12th, and I spent my early morning sitting on the beach. Like I have mentioned before, I have been struggling with breathing. I have been trying to decompress and live in the moment, so this morning I pushed myself. I woke up after restless sleep and decided to love myself a…

October

Now we are in October.With a new month comes fresh thoughts, intentions, and aspirations. We enter this month with remnants of the last, but aware and searching for better. Let us take October and make it what we need and want. Let us sculpt it while it forms us. I hope this month is filled…
