What is Frankly Friday?
Let’s define Frankly shall we…
. . .
Before jumping into Frankly Friday i wanted to share with you this little gem of a video:
This would be my brother’s school with one of the largest gatherings to do the Harlem Shake.
He said they sent out an e-blast/facebook and said to be at one of the amphitheaters within 30 minutes, and THAT MANY people showed up.
Yup my brother was in there…somewhere.
. . .
I used to write a lot of poetry, short stories, and just random ramblings.
I slowed down a while ago…i guess i had a block or i just didn’t care anymore, but the other night all of the pent up emotions, frustrations, thoughts, and worries came flooding to the service.
It isn’t much of anything really…and frankly i always get nervous when i post any of my ‘journalings’ mostly because i think others might find it foolish or weird, or not fully understand it.
I’ve learned that it really doesn’t matter what others thing of my ramblings, it’s a great way for me to be honest with where i am in the moment and express so many different thoughts/feelings/etc.
I’ve kept some of them (actually not that many at all) on my tumblr.
. . .
Speaking & Silence.
Speak out on what is weighing you down.
Speak out to offer love.
Speak out to just be heard.
Embrace your emotions.
Embrace everything pouring out of your heart.
Embrace the empty echo.
The sharp and dull pings of rain hitting the roof.
The rhythmic breathing escaping my lungs.
The deafening darkness that encapsulates my room.
The knots that form in my hair from tossing in my sleep.
I fight for love, for pain, for freedom, redemption, hope, and security.
The weakening of muscles.
The comfortable weight that settles over me.
The small tug at the edges of my lips.
