Dying might save your life.

“Whether you can or cannot, you’re right.”

It’s been a 134 days as of today (16 April 2017) since I’ve sat down with the intention of ‘publishing’ here. I won’t lie and say that I didn’t open this screen more times than I wish to admit, stumbling through sentences; hoping to make something that spoke to me.

So back from the dead, these are 4 things that I learnt:

1.People are ticking time bombs and while some are grenades, it’s the nuclear bombs you should fear.

Humour me, open your chats and call log.

Who do you speak to the most just because?

There’s your bomb. If they ceased to be there right in this second, would you disintegrate? Are you still standing? How much damage did they leave behind and were they worth it?

Watch yourself with others, don’t become a minefield.


2. Screw what people say, if you think it’s right then it is.

Whatever decisions you make, what you say or wear even what you eat is right so long as you feel that way. You get 24 measly hours a day and to have something haunt you whatever part of the day is a waste of time. Honey you’re golden and that’s all that matters.

3.Please isn’t a magic word – Hello is.

You need capital, advice, transport or the best pizza joint’s number. Google isn’t the best way to get it. You see that person who stood in line behind you? He knows that pizza joint. That woman you passed yesterday? She looking for people who are looking to start a business that she can help fund. You walk past opportunities everyday and you should shoot yourself in the foot for it.

4. Breathe, and do the shite you like.

Remember those measly 24 hours? Well I like writing my crappy poetry and even crappier pieces with it. It makes me happy, so does hopelessly falling in love with everyone and thing around me. I happen to like my weird music and love dancing to it too. I might not know how to cook like a normal person but when I don’t burn, my food is pretty bomb so I’ll enjoy that too. Crying feels good and so does pooping. Having an unpopular opinion doesn’t make you wrong. Life is a compilation of too many 24 hours and too little things we like – so do the shite you like and breathe.

Doing shite she likes,
Lita.

Today

To be honest when I started this, I had no idea what I was gonna write about. I could’ve have told you about anything, everything, anywhere.
I could have been one of those wanderlust stricken characters that we all seem to fall in love with or a sappy poet stuck sitting in a cafe while
staring at the downpour.

That’s just it though, I’m none of those things, even though one can’t deny it would be quite interesting to be a character.
I could have told you of how books became and have remained my escape. As cliche as it may sound, I remember how I seemed to disappear to Egypt to be a spy and
those around me would be unware of the enemies that I faced.

I could of told you anything really. I could have told you that in Grade 6, I had my first fallout with my friends or that I never cried over it. That time is becoming
an unfamilar concept because my tea gets colder nowadays. Or I prefer coloured flowers when they are dried rather than pure white ones that just look dead, like the beauty
was not preserved.

I could have said “Why did the chicken cross the road? ” and you would have perhaps thought of all the different variations to the answer you know, all of which
would be better than the answer I had in mind. I could tell you that i wonder about the world, people and how they are doing. About you, sitting behind the screen, I could tell you that I wonder about the sort of life you live. Whether you are happy or just drifting.

                   I could tell you all these things.
                   sometimes I do, sometimes I dont.
                                                                
that’s life.

See you soon
