Calm


Calm, originally uploaded by Jennifer Belthoff.

the darkness
and the light
feeling equally intense

this is the moment of
truth
honesty
raw
messy
hopeful
emotions

feel each of them
breathe deeply
let the waves of emotion
wash over you

you will rise up
stronger
braver
wiser
you will be seen
for YOU!

Outdoor Geourgeous Moments

Sunset, view from aunt alices balcony 

*  Riding my bicycle
*  Watching the sunset
*  Beautiful clouds in the sky
*  Star gazing and wishing upon them
*  Sitting around a campfire with the ones I love
*  Swimming
*  Taking photographs of flowers
*  Walking around Verona Park
*  Hiking
*  Painting on a blanket outside
*  Taking an outdoor shower after a day at the beach
*  Being on the beach

be

George Washington Bridge

be yourself 
there is no one else I would rather you be
you sparkle
you shine
you light up all that is around you

be yourself
the world needs people like you
to help them laugh
ease their fears
and bring out the fun inside them

be yourself
and see yourself as other see you
beautiful
strong
brave

Perspective


originally uploaded by Jennifer Belthoff.

Sometimes at first glance things can appear to be so small
But if you take a moment to stop
and look from a different angle
That matter of perspective just might change

Stop
Look around
Get down real low
See something from a different point of view

see you there


Glow, originally uploaded by Jennifer Belthoff.

Lets meet again
Like we have so many times before

Lets dance beneath the moon,
swim through the oceans tide
and snuggle up close

Lets laugh with one another
Get tangled up in our dreams
and play together

Lets reminisce about times long past
And smile about how met met
And how we never kept in touch

Lets meet again
Like we have so many times before
I will see you there, safely in my dreams

Library

some of my book collection

Have you ever walked into the library and found yourself smiling from ear to ear?
Quietly walking down each aisle,
browsing all the different titles,
different covers,
different subjects.
Wanting to take each book off the shelf and bring it home with you.  
Everything looks so appetizing.
Covers and titles speaking to your inner core
Calling out to you
Begging to be picked up and brought home.  

Oh!  So many books, and just not enough time.  

Journey

Oaxaca, Mexico

I am on a journey
and at times it seems incredibly long.
I feel like I am climbing up a mountain
but will never reach the point of ecstasy.  

People say to enjoy the process, 
savor the moments, 
stop to look around and take it all in.

It is not always easy to do when you know
what you ultimately want to experience,
and when you feel in your heart
exactly what you are longing for.  

It's not easy when you had a taste of something
so sweet and you can't seem to find that delicacy again.

The mountain seems steeper and steeper 
as the days go on.  
You get out of breathe more quickly and 
fall with your head held down in despair.

Will you ever make it to the top?
Will you ever see, feel, experience
that kind of beauty again?

The journey seems so long, 
so hard, 
so strenuous.  
But the only thing you know how to do
it so keep on going.
And so you do.
