That day when…

that day when

 

You set the bar so high no one can achieve it…

Not even you.

You lay there awake at three, four, five am

Asking yourself – “Have I failed yet?”

You watch other people and wonder

What’s it like to be you?

Their life stories unravelling at the touch of your imagination.

The thoughts that you would never share,

The questions that haunt and don’t let go.

But then it wouldn’t be your life.

Someday you will find your heart

And the only biggest strongest gesture that matters right now is the hug you give yourself

 

that day when

9/11

I often looked at the clock

And time was never at standstill

Sometimes it was there to mock

Sometimes it was there to kill

But the numbers 9 11

They always stood out to me

I caught myself looking

Unconscious….

Today they buried my grandpa

And I wondered if that’s why

If numbers were playing a trick on me

Or if it’s just life?

Today I want you to go and give your family a call, give them a hug, tell them you love them, tell them you miss them… Don’t fight, don’t argue, because at the end of the day it’s not worth it. You all have a purpose and a reason to be here, and it’s to create beauty and love and find that glow!

I love you all, and I want to say a great big THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to all of you who have been sending prayers and loving kind thoughts my way. You mean so much to me. I have been crying on and off again today, over 9/11, over my grandfather, and not being able to be in Russia. But I have also been crying happy tears, that I have a loving husband, and a family here, who take care of me. And I know that the Universe is watching over me. I have been seeing signs everywhere, from a hand wave of a small child, to watching a ladybug make it’s way around my chair while listening to the wind chimes at the Sculpture Garden.

Love,

Zhenya

When in Doubt

You know, people say – When in doubt, don’t use brain. And I say:

We all have our doubts, so

When in doubt

Talk about

Don’t breakout

Or holdout

Or pout

Or blackout

Or freak out

Try to read aloud

To shout out

And stand out

Also helps:

A workout

Eat a sprout

Use white out

Arrange a cookout

Hand some invites out

Don’t burn out

But stay up till lights out

Give your hair a blow out

And knock all doubt out

Force it out

You can so do without

Try something new out

Give your children a time out

And don’t doubt!

My favorite No to doubt is No Doubt!
