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.

April, the 8th

What I want most at this moment is to feel you.Your breath on my skin as I slowly close my eyes and allow my other senses a chance to get to know you.The softest of touch from your tongue.The sharp smell of your natural musk.The warm sound of your laugh.The smooth feel of your strong…

2021

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…

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…

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…

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….
