Day 6: REVITALIZE
To imbue something with new life and vitality.
“Trust in what you love, continue to do it, and it will take you where you need to go.”
― Natalie Goldberg
Revitalization isn’t starting over, it’s the first step in renewal, a blending of old ways with new ways. For autumn, find any neglected, forgotten, mundane thing in your life and revitalize it. Whatever you find, let it take you out of your comfort zone for a moment, and write out any and all emotions, thoughts, or ideas to grow within your creative endeavor.
Look through your writing, pick something that stands out. Play with it. Revitalize dormant words with new energy. Create something new.
Embracing My Essence
My essence of being in which I remain,
The pursuance of dreams I wish to obtain
Melody of my soul shall sing me a song,
Embracing my essence to which I belong
Facing myself, What shall I find?
Trials endured through the hands of time
Parallels of my mind echo away,
Speaking the moments of my yesterdays
Recollection of memory embedding my thoughts,
Untangling my spirit amongst the knots
Conquering confusion consuming my soul,
Releasing the madness taking its toll
Pursuing the future with hope by my side,
Beauty of my essence no longer shall hide
Shining my light upon my darkened heart,
Stitching the pieces fallen apart
Revitalization of past stories told,
Essence of my healing starting to mold
Beginning again on this long winding trail,
Into my future my essence shall sail
