Pay it forward….

PIF - Pay it Forward

PIF – Pay it Forward (Photo credit: amitaf)

The dental recovery is going well -actually today its fine but I’m milking it and have spent this morning catching up with more bloggers- don’t judge me 😉

Like my last catch up session – posted here– I feel so much better after visiting some of my favourite blogs and falling in love with them all over again…remembering why I followed them…remembering why trawling through my reader is worth it…reminding me WHY I love blogging. So, like last time, I am now going to highlight the blogs visited and pay it forward

Mocha at LiveUntil wrote a great post about fate, coincidence…things happening for a reason which I believe strongly about http://liveuntil.com/2013/06/01/daily-prompt-one-silver-line-through-the-universe/ Mocha, you inspire me, your words fill me with hope, with light and I hope you realise exactly how much happiness you bring to others – thank you xB

Petite Magique recently celebrated an anniversary – so congrats to you 🙂 and also wrote a piece about tattoos http://petitemagique.wordpress.com/2013/06/10/photo-shoot-tattoos/ which got me thinking, this post has inspired a future blog post for me so thank you 🙂

Ionia has taken a well deserved break/vacation which allowed me to stalk her blog quite freely 😉 One thing which stands out for me is how much she supports other writers with her interviews, reviews and just general interest from Ionia…not to mention the interaction through comments, the community storyboard… So now its my turn to pay it forward and suggest some of Ionias ‘writing attempts’ lol  http://readfulthingsblog.com/category/my-writing-attempts/ Thank you Ionia for playing such a massive part in my blogging world xB

Writing the body http://writingthebody.wordpress.com/2013/06/05/tears/  (whom nominated me recently and I’ve just remembered I still haven’t posted it myself) always amazes me, such honest writing and beautiful poems – even when drunk 😉

The Crazy Nigerian (that’s the name of his blog – not me being harsh lol) has recently appeared…no no that’s not right… erm he’s been heard on the radio discussing his  book! whoop whoop http://thecrazynigerian.com/a-good-read/ Which I am so excited about! Well done you 🙂

Jesus Likes Pizza wrote about the perfect love http://jesuslikespizza.wordpress.com/2013/06/01/believe-and-be-satisfied-perfect-love/ which I found beautifully inspiring – thank you for sharing your faith xx

I FINALLY got over to visit GreenEmbers and discovered the truth about Amazon… http://greenembers.wordpress.com/2013/06/05/why-amazon-thinks-youre-stupid-opinion-piece/ its actually rather disgusting…and senseless in my opinion (Amazon not the post lol) Bradley…I will say this again…you are amazing, you are an inspiration and not only that but you have single handedly (is that a word?) given us the RCC… you have given so many people encouragement…that’s all down to you…thank you

Wyndy has had a tough time lately http://wyndydee.wordpress.com/2013/06/05/i-repent-to-my-followers-friends-and-especially-rcc/ and I don’t like it one bit!! -well I DID ‘like’ her post but shhh. Wyndy, chin up lady, you are loved and we are behind you – regardless of less reblogs/blog posts/comments… we all have our own lives outside of the blogging world, we all understand how hard it can be to find the balance so please don’t apologise for being AWOL for a little while… just know we are here for you xB

Charles wrote recently of changes in his hometown http://legendsofwindemere.com/2013/06/11/hometown-changes/ which hit a nerve with me, His poem captured my feelings about it beautifully; he’s also got a book out so well done Charles, I hope to read it soon and everyone…everyone…go buy his book!! 🙂

Cathy has been staying true to form and posting beautiful photographs and poetry, this one http://largeself.com/2013/05/10/weekly-photo-challenge-pattern/ is my favourite, so simple, so beautiful…

Donna – my very own cheerleader (twit twoo) has been off roaming Scotland and hunting for her muse http://donnaweidner.com/2013/05/29/got-bupkis/ Come back soon Donna! I miss you 🙂

I have SOOOOO many more blogs to get through -so bear with me- but for now its about time I got dressed and attacked some of my other goals for this week -oh yeah and then there’s the small matter of housework *groan*

So…. Thank you all for continuing to write amazing pieces

Fork in the road

This evenings contribution to the Community Storyboard xBx

The Community Storyboard

I find myself
Standing
Breathless
At a fork in the road
Staring at the routes ahead
Both taking me forward
Both in different directions
Both leading to the unknown…
But which path should I take?
How do I choose?

The path to my left
Is straight
The surface is smooth…
Flat

Sheltered by thick trees
Protecting me from the elements
It looks  safe
It looks Easy
So tempting

The path to my right
Looks daunting
It’s rough
Bumpy
Like no one has ventured that way before
The view is obstructed
By the steep incline
Of the hills ahead
It would be a tough journey
The uphill struggle would take all my energy
I couldn’t foresee what lay ahead
What I would find on the other side

I look back to the left
That would be easier
The straight
Smooth path
But it’s so plain
Perhaps even boring
It stays the…

Crystal: Bartender and Thomas

My character post on the MisAdventures of Vanilla 🙂

The MisAdventures of Vanilla

‘AGAIN!’ the drunk, overweight businessman demanded as he leaned across the bar and stuffed a few notes down my top.

‘Larry honey I think you’ve had enough…want me to call you a cab?’

He swayed sleepily, raised his eyebrows and tried his best to keep his eyes from rolling.  ‘Look Crystal,’ he slurred and waved some more bills in my face; ‘If THIS wont get me just one more drink….what exactly WILL it get me? You do that stuff don’t you? Going that extra mile…customer satisfaction and all that…?’

I flushed and tried not to stiffen but even Larry – as drunk as he was- noticed my change in demeanor.  A smirk crossed his lips and he slowly nodded,  ‘Oh, so you do, eh?’ he leaned towards me once more, the sickly sweet smell of Jack Daniels and cigarettes clouding the air and sticking in my lungs.

‘I’ll call you…

Kisses goodbye

My latest Post in the Community Storyboard xBx

The Community Storyboard

She squeezed her eyes shut tight, swallowing the lump in her throat and fighting back the tears; willing herself to keep it together.

He wrapped his arms around her neck and held her close, breathing softly in her ear.

“I love you” she whispered as she stroked the nape of his neck, gently tugging at the loose strands of hair and wishing she didn’t have to let him go.

“Love you more” he smiled at her, his deep brown eyes filled with wonder… excitement but holding a flicker of worry too.

She smiled back through the ache she felt in her heart and cupped his face in her hands. She sighed,  recording every detail of his face.

With one last peck on the cheek he turned and walked away, his dirty blonde hair flopping with every step.

“Not possible” she said to herself, Allowing tears to roll freely down her…

Happiest Moment of Today #20

Motivation Monday…. ‘Happiness Project’ One of my favourite parts of this blog 🙂 Even on the days which aren’t so great we should still look for the positives 🙂

The Girl with Twine in Her Bag

One of the days where my happiness level is 1 out of 10, so the happiest moment would be having lunch alone at CoffeeBean with my book.
