Our little Poetry Bar community is growing on Instagram as well! This actually comes as a surprise to me because The Poetry Bar Instagram is not as active as The Poetry Bar here because not all of you have Instagram accounts and I don’t like sharing your work there if I can’t tag your IG as well for other people to check you out.
Anyways, I am very happy to see we hit 300 followers on our Poetry Bar Instagram account yesterday. I will put in much more effort to grow that platform as well for all of you to enjoy 🙂
I hope you are all staying safe during this difficult times. Feel free to comment below how are you feeling and reach out if you need some help. We are all in this together ❤
I am still stressed and trying to cope with everything going on in Croatia. I did promise we will re-activate The Positivity Press during these difficult times to keep positive, read something happy every day, but I honestly don’t have a lot of positive thoughts or events going on in my life right now.
But a promise is a promise so here is J Balvin and his adorable dog dancing to Baby got back because dogs make everything better. Just look at him!
I can’t count the number of times I’ve been so frustrated on this path and wanted to throw in the towel. Sometimes I just can’t stand the constant up-hill battle I have to face in order to meet even the smallest goals. There are days I just want to give up and try something else. There are days I wish things were as easy as the false teachers claim, but I already learned the hard way that following their popularized image will get me nowhere. It’s difficult being strong when it looks as if you’re not making any progress and there are so many things close to your heart that you want to contribute to. It can hurt your self-esteem, too.
Still, the frustration passes. After a while, you remember you’re not the first person or the last to go through these trials. Your spirit team know what you’re going through. And if you have a mentor and extended family like mine, you also have physical people you can share your troubles with. It’s good to know you’re not alone – whether you’re a student, a single parent, suffering from depression, or recovering from addictions or abuse, you are seen and felt and loved. Sure your path may be hard, but that proves it’s worth following. You’re not the first, and you won’t be the last; but you can be a guiding light to those who come after you.

Hi! My name is Holly and I’m the owner/author of Holly’sWorld (https://photogarphybyhcmorris77.com/) where I share photos, photo tips and life within reason. Life can be hard, I try to see the bright side and go with the flow. Thanks for taking a look!!
This blog is expanding really fast, new followers are coming on board every single day and I’m thrilled! Our little community is not that little anymore!
Since new bloggers who join us have questions about guest posts and don’t feel like digging through the blog to find all of the previous posts here are the three ways you can guest post on Luna. I will probably repeat this post after every 200-400 new followers just to keep everyone up to speed.
Our second child of guest posts is THE POSITIVITY PRESS – here you send your positive stories, share positive vibes, send pictures, tell us about your new job or hobby and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. It was designed to bring joy to us on a daily basis and keep us positive and grateful for all the little experiences that happen to us. You just need to send your positive vibes to the e-mail address and attach a blog link if you’d like
Our toddler is #savingme project – here you can share your stories about any type of abuse you’ve experienced. The email is email@example.com. The project was made to let abuse victims know they are not alone. If you don’t want to share your whole story, you can share how you got out, some advice to people going through this hell currently. It’s a safe place and your story can be published completely anonymously. Also, you can see that I post about my own experience with domestic abuse and not only my story but my thoughts, mechanisms that helped me overcome it etc.
Our new born baby is Post Prose where authors can publish their prose works, short stories, parts from books they’re writing etc. so that we can all indulge in some nice, quality reading. Send your works to firstname.lastname@example.org
That’s pretty much it. Now, new bloggers and old bloggers let’s see what you’ll send my way. Love you all!
Yesterday, while I was at work, my boyfriend texted me that we didn’t have any power! And then, when I got home, the mower wouldn’t start. Bad connects, he thinks. Anyway, I called the power company to let them know we didn’t have any power. They told me that the power would be on by 4pm! It was only about 130!! It was nearly 90 degrees out! (We don’t have ac – only fans, including but not limited to ceiling fans.) Couldn’t even take a shower to rinse all the sweat off!
I could’ve let that ruin my day, but I didn’t. I worked on my laptop, editing some photos (no power=no wifi). As long as the battery had some charge in it, I could use it! When I was done with that, I did some reading.
I mean, I could’ve let those two things ruin my day, but I didn’t. There is always something to be thankful for…we’ve got a roof over our heads, food in the pantry and the bills are paid. All the other stuff is minor.
My boyfriend, on the other hand, is another story!
Let me tell you a little story that happened this week to me. It was Thursday. I worked my morning shift and after work I went to grab some food and a beer with my friend from work. We spent a few hours together, talking, everything was great. I went on a tram and after a few stops I felt dizzy. It wasn’t pain. It was like I couldn’t actually feel my body. I just felt weak at the knees. I started walking slowly to the exit even thought I wasn’t near my friend’s apartment. I just had to get the fuck out of there because I couldn’t breathe. My body was just going numb and my face, legs and arms were tingling.
When I got off at a station, I saw a bit of space on the bench and I sat down. There was like 4 older women to my right and one to my left. I was just getting worse. I have problems with my thyroid and I knew it was one of those damn attacks I have because of it. I was clearly, obviously struggling to even breathe and no one asked me if I was okay. There was a bunch of people around me and no one noticed or even cared that there was someone sitting beside them suffocating.
I had to take off my jacket but since I was running out of air and my hands were numb I just couldn’t. The one that was sitting next to me turned her head and saw me struggling to take my jacket off. She asked me if I was feeling alright and helped me take my jacket of. No one but her even noticed me.
She was older and didn’t really know how to use a phone but she asked me if I want her to help me get someone to pick me up or even get an ambulance to take me to the hospital. My friend wasn’t answering me. I knew that within 10 minutes everything would stop but I felt like I was going to die.
The woman just sat there with me until I felt better. That’s all. This little act of kindness where she just sat next to me helped me get through my health problem. This is all it takes. Not a grand gesture, just this little act of kindness which made it easier for me to get through. I can’t even describe how grateful I was this woman was there and I think we can all learn something from her example.
