Mind Bites

Hello all you lovely readers!

I would like to begin by apologizing for not updating this past month, honestly speaking, I wasn’t inspired by much. Well the past is the past and now I have decided to start a series called Mind Bites. These will be one-liners or short paragraphs with deep/ quirky meanings and I will post one each week! I hope you all enjoy this!                                                                    ~ Angie

Who said I was lost? I’m just following the map in my heart.

 

 

Birthday Special

Hello all you lovely people! So, four days ago it was my birthday and I realized a few things-

On your birthday you realize how many people out there really care for you. A small “Happy birthday”on your facebook timeline shows that someone noticed your name and decided to take out a few seconds from procrastination to wish you. Or, someone actually looked for your name out of god-knows-how-many contacts and typed out a cute little birthday message with a couple of emojis  to send via text. Or, the fewer amazing people who decided to call you up after weeks/ months/ years just to wish you and remind you that they’re always there for you. It doesn’t matter if they took two seconds or twenty minutes, it just shows that you matter to them and they matter to you.

This is thank you to all those lovely people who are out there and think about me at least once a year, you mean a lot to me.

Rewrite The Bygones

If I had the power to change the past I would

I don’t care for the consequences

Nor for the unspoken sentences

The past isn’t always good

 

Taking back something I said

Is not achievable

It’s the game of a turning table

Hopefully happiness waits at the end

 

I’ll have to carry on

I’ll have to be strong

Forgetting the past

Is the key to make things last.

Sharp As A Knife

He handed me the knife firmly, I could feel the difference between the warmth of his skin and the cool touch of the metal. I wasn’t sure if I was afraid or not but the situation was definitely intimidating.

He silently nodded and I walked forward, the knife clutched tightly in my right hand, ready to strike. I headed towards today’s task.

My weapon was sharp enough to do the job quickly but my hands were shaking in fear, If I made a mistake it would all be over.

Taking in a deep breath I took one last step to the counter and quickly began chopping the vegetables, this was my test for becoming a permanent chef at a five-star restaurant and I had to do my best.

Well there you go! Another surprise ending! I hope it was as good as the previous one. Sorry for not posting for so long.

This was based on a quote my father shared with me “If someone hands you a knife, it’s your decision whether you use it to chop vegetables or kill someone”
