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…

Friday, the 9th

As a child, I would always hear the adults mourn how fast time flies, and I never understood it.As a naive girl, how could I?The older I get, the faster time does fly. Today is Friday again, and that’s another week that we will never get back. Take a second and think, did you do…

Monday

Like a metaphor, we open our wings on this beautiful Monday and prepare for take-off. The feeling of the unknown, the anxiety of putting yourself, and your thoughts our there…. excitingly terrifying. With our minds and hearts open, we can all conquer this week. This Month. This Year. This Life. Cheers! Gabriela A Tejada Copyright…

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….
