Day 269 – Post Four-Hundred-Forty-Nine

 

Inspiration: Self confidence.

Today was an unexpected day. I worked, came home and did school, took a shower, and that’s about it. Haha. (: It’s okay though.

Au revoir,

Gigi

Day 268 – Post Four-Hundred-Forty-Eight

 

Inspiration: Free.

Today was a wonderful, much-needed day. I went to church, and then spent the rest of my day with my friend. We went to our PLE group at a local tea shop, and it was a wonderful talk about the action of believing (how it is a verb) and how faith is a noun, it is something you have. We also spoke about the power of our words. It was wonderful. (: Then, I went back over to my friend’s home and watched “I Am Number Four” and “Les Miserables”.  It was such a good day.

Au revoir,

Gigi

Day 267 – Post Four-Hundred-Forty-Seven

 

Inspiration: Choosing.

Workkkk. It was.. fun? I finished “She Said Yes” though, and it was phenomenal. I’m planning on writing a post about it at some point . . . you know how I am though.
Now? Off to bed to spend some time with God, and reading “Grapes of Wrath”.
By the way.. watch “Hereafter”. I almost cried. Almost.

Au revoir,

Gigi

Foreign Qualities – Post Four-Hundred-Forty-Two

Again, I beg of you
Lose yourself in foreign moments
Comforts are for children with blankets.
Step outside the line of where you are
& where you want to be.

Count the seconds you fall in love,
& cherish the quality of what you do not know.
Breathe in the charms of a smile
& catch a glimpse of the beauty of soft whispers. 

The foreign qualities of a map are contagious.
The feeling of that ticket in your hand, thrilling.
The taste of that flight, so many miles from your blanket,
Only a traveling ghost could grasp hold of this for life.

Au revoir,

Gigi

Gigi
