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…

Tuesday, the 22nd

Sometimes we forget that we’re dealing with humans,humans just like us.Complex being with emotions and dreams,battling through fears and heartaches.Battling wars in and out of their homes, in and out of their minds.We forget that behind closed doors we all cry the same, and probably for many of the same reasons.Behind that same door, we…

Monday, the 21st

We are constantly evolving, continuously learning new aspects about our universe, about our beings. On this Monday, I hope we all take a moment for self-reflection and Love. Gabriela A Tejada Copyright © All Rights Reserved. All Images were taken by me, unless stated otherwise.

To Reminiscence

In life, we collect memories.  Those extraordinary moments that were so incredibly powerful, that we can remember them as if it were yesterday. A page in our photo album stored in our minds and hearts. I’ve always found it fascinating how vividly a memory plays when I close my eyes. I can smell the hints…

Sane

After losing control of my energy, ..I felt awake again. As I climbed to the edge of the cliff, I felt invincible. I felt my own strength as I fought, grounded by Mother Nature.  I felt the power surrounding me, slowly destroying any words of doubt, filling my lungs up with fresh air of strength and ambition….

Start of August

Like a child, the only thing heard as I looked out the car window was “WOW.” You smiled as you briefly took your eyes off the road to watch me. “I think I’ve only ever seen these in movies! They’re so terrifying, yet majestic in person.” I yelled. You laughed and called me your “City…

Month of July

I feel it around me as I walk slowly wrapping its self around me, like a shield of hope guiding me as i walk eyes closed, heart open feeling the ground underneath my being, grounding me, smelling its warm delicate scent of tranquility an intimate encounter, a connection linking us, and only us. a passionate…
