I remember sitting here a couple of years ago and feeling not only humbled by the view but being able to see Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was held for 27 years. Having grown up in South Africa, we were taught the history of Apartheid for most of our schooling years, memorizing dates of protests and implementation dates of segregation laws. As the years go by, my respect for the personalities that stood for justice and truth only augments. The ability to give up 27 years, fight a fight for the people and then come out ready to build a new nation truly humbles me. The same man who gave his life to the struggle is also the warm man that picked up my three year old sister and told her she made his day. Grateful to have shared history with such a man and to have been able to grow up in a nation he helped shape. Happy 100th Madiba, forever with us ______________ #journey #trust #focus #inspirational #motivational #inspire #motivate #inspirational #quotes u #madiba #quotestoliveby #quotestagram #love #hope #success #positivity #mandela #positivethinking #dailyquotes #dailyinspiration #dailymotivation #hardwork #intention #africa #soul #poetrycommunity #poetsofinstagram #poetry #word #writerscorner

ive been struggling with adulthood honestly. i don’t know shit. there shoulda been a manual on this or a class cus i am LOST. i’ve been stressing so much lately, i feel like its part of my writers block. when i write its a stress reliever. but in the back of my mind i get so guilt enjoying writing that i feel like i should be using that time to get my shit together and do what i want later. it’s just... it’s been a mental battle lately and rly hard. so my man got me ice cream to de stress before i have another mid life stressed panic attack again. • • • #adminnakka #nakka #nakkashareslife #archiveofourown #writersofinstagram #writerscorner #tumblr #kurokonobasuke #haikyuu #kurokosbasketball

I spend too much time looking for things I already have within me . KSJ

“Music is a proud, temperamental mistress. Give her the time and attention she deserves, and she is yours. Slight her and there will come a day when you call and she will not answer. So I began sleeping less to give her the time she needed.” ― Patrick Rothfuss // Pic - @k.tolnoe . . #bookworm #bookworms #bookwormforlife #booklover #booklovers #booklove #booknerdigans #igbooks #bookish #bibliophile #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writerscommunity #amwriting #nanowrimo #amediting #ilovewriting #authorlife #writerscorner #writerscommunity #poetry #poetsofinstagram #poem #poetry #writing #writer #music #songs

I wish I could post EVERY message you guys send me. Every comment from my website to all of my social media platforms. Just know I FEEL the love. I’m posting a lot of poetry right now because it’s not fair to you guys that have been waiting and even worse if you’ve already pre-ordered my 11th book #LustIsEasy2 that was scheduled to hit stores weeks ago to have to wait because my team and stores didn’t have the proper communication to print 20,000 paperback and hardback copies. Until @officiallandofnostalgia free my new book, I will give you poetry EVERYDAY to hold you for the delay. We gone have fun with this process. I’m a dissect all my own poetry like an onion. Enjoy the ride and thank you for your support. I love you back ❤️

FINALLY got the next chapter of my short story up on my blog. I’ve learned to embrace the creative need to write even if it’s at work in place of me actually doing my work 🙃 I’m my defense, it’s been a slow month! Either way, cheers to writing half a chapter in my phone notes! 👊🏼 . . . . . . #photography #digitalphotography #photographer #manual #minnesota #minneapolis #photooftheday #picoftheday #photodaily #photogram #writersofinstagram #writer #writingdesk #flashfiction #amwriting #writingprompt #writingtips #bookshop #indieauthor #writingblock #writers #photographylovers #photooftheday #writerswhispering #writersblock #storyteller #writersuniverse #writersnetwork #writerscorner
