I met a tarot reader in your small town in July.
she told me, no matter where you go,
what fortunes and success you find,
no matter how you are fulfilled,
that you would always feel as if
something is missing.
she said that something is me.
I lay awake at night, wondering
if you know its true too. —sunday service prompt response—

yet kicking and screaming
is how you greeted this world
and you will hold no space for redeeming
a man so wholly unbeseeming
and when you look back
you will see
that there was always a crack
and it can only be he
who can try to break you
so that you can take your life
back into your ever-expanding purview
because no one - no one
can burn quite like you do
Unboxing Scribbler @goscribbler box so please don't scroll if you don't want spoilers.
Today I'll talk about how you can use October's Scribbler box to be a writer:
1. Order a Scribbler box.
2. Unbox it and light up the candle, "Writer on Fire". It's warm, delicious scents will create the perfect work environment.
3. Read the Writing passport on how to master Worldbuilding , because let's face it, worldbuilding is critical for a good book.
4. Use the 3 mini journals to jot down ideas.
5. You might get hungry at this point, so why not snack on the Organic Delifish packet that came with your box!
6. If you're taking a break, read the book of the month, How Fires End by Marco Rafalà, which came with a signed bookplate & bookmark!
7. Your novel is now ready, go ahead and read the publishing process booklet. It'll give you and insight into how the process works.
8. The Scribbler art print is stunning and will brighten up any room ( you don't need to be a writer to appreciate it)
9. Last but not the least, you have an exclusive invitation to chat with Hafizah Geter, editor at Little A Publishing and Topple Books
Hope you enjoyed the unboxing and let me know how the writing goes! .

One thing that would bring Donna back to normalcy at work ✌🏻 - she got to pick the music sometimes 😃 Most of the time, it was only when Donna had to go on stage 💃🏻 as they did for all of the dancers 👯♀️ But sometimes if she was the only girl in, they’d let her have #pandora for the whole night 📻 She’d usually bounce between something like #ledzeppelin 🎸 to #disturbed 😱 or something crazy like that just to keep things interesting 🤔
Somehow #blink182 started playing 🤘🏻 - who knows what radio this was 🤷🏻♀️ - and the song “Always” came on 💋
Donna plopped herself up at the bar and asked the bartender for a water 💦 She has a few minutes to catch her breath since she was in between customers 🙎🏻♂️

Donna and her cousin Bri used to always listen to this song as a kid 🎧 She remembers standing in the pouring rain 🌧 one summer when her and Bri saw #blink182 live at Jones Beach 🏖 𝘠𝘦𝘢𝘩 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘸𝘢𝘴 𝘢 𝘧𝘶𝘯 𝘤𝘰𝘯𝘤𝘦𝘳𝘵... Even though Donna and Bri weren’t particularly close anymore 🤼♀️ it was still nice to feel some kind of connection to somebody who wasn’t the animal 🐅
The men’s bathroom door open (it’s a small club and a really loud door) 🚽🚪 Donna turns around and makes eye contact 👁 with a well-groomed businessman in a navy blue suit 👔 He nods towards the VIP Room (adjacent to the men’s bathroom) and walks in 👞
Donna pushes her chair in and takes her water with her as she heads towards the curtains 👠

Can’t believe it was two years ago I left ITV to pursue a new career around my love of cycling 🚴♀️. Still miss working with the wonderful @sangeetabtv and the legend that is Fred Dinenage. It was a fun 15 years with some wonderful people on the other side of the camera too. But life goes on and you have to take those opportunities when they come around.
Do you have a favorite hero Villain
What character sacrificed everything in the name of love And it tore at your little fictional lovin’ heart 😭 #thefeelsarereal
I finished Phantom of the Opera! And ah! I didn’t realize how much the movie sugar costs things and gives it a movie romantic atmosphere. Don’t get me wrong! I adore the movie and the songs, but in the book the phantom or Opera Ghost has a longer list of bad deeds and it’s much harder to feel for him then in the movie....but I won’t lie I still adore him #fangirlproblems and the book!!!! (Cue creepy opera music)
Annnnnnndddddddd my friend @books.and.amortentia sent me Romanov by @nadinebrandes 😱😍😍😍 I’ve been wanting to read this for so long and now we’re going to read it together! This is going to be the perfect way to start the holiday season!!! 👏🏻👏🏻🎄⛄️☕️📚

LETS TALK MORE.💬
It is always surprising to me when people say that the mental health crisis is getting better. Maybe more people are changing their dietary habits or meditating or finding their purpose and awakening, but we are tip toeing over the problem. People talk about mental health in a way that it’s safe to talk about it, we call this “wellness” but we don’t talk about mental illness and we barely confront the reality of the suicide epidemic. We are a forgotten people that have been persuaded to think that we can be accepted if we are healed.
According to WHO, the World Health Organization, currently one person dies by suicide every 40 seconds somewhere around the world. It is predicted that by 2020 that will increase to one person every 20 seconds.
How do we improve this We stop talking about mental illness and health as if it were something that we dealt with in the past. As if, we USED to be ill and now we are 100% better. What happens is the person who is struggling, who is practicing these methods to make themselves better doesn’t get there and the shame is increased. It pushes them over the edge.
I take pride in my community and our ability to persevere, to be empathetic towards one another, when so many people are telling us that in order to live a good life we need to be fixed.
We should live in a world where people are not punished for being their version of human, for living with a condition that needs treatment. Society’s problem shouldn’t be our problem. .
