Final Post

As you might have noticed, I haven’t posted anything since January 3rd! D:

The truth is, I have turned my focus to my poetry on East Coast Insomnia. I have finally reached the point where I have a constantly growing audience for what I love: creative writing. Aside from the poetry, however, I do take time to just talk about life, similar to what I would do here.

So, as terribly sad as I am to make this announcement, this will be my final post on Her Softly Spoken Heart. I have loved every minute of this blog, and it helped me through so much along the way. The truth is, some of my best advice is woven throughout this blog, so I am going to happily leave it up for browsing.

What I would like to do now is to invite you to visit, and then hopefully join, the happenings of East Coast Insomnia. It truly is the rawest version of myself that I can give right now.

If this blog has ever made a difference in your life, or even made you stop and thinking about the things around you, I encourage you to comment and let me know. I would love to hear from you guys!

Thank you for the consistency and support that you, my readers, have given to me; it truly has meant the world. I hope and pray that you all do well in life, and that there would be happiness all around. Feel free to contact me any time.

Mucho love-o,
Brittany Rose

Woah, it’s 2012!

In the case that you’ve been under a rock for the last couple of days, I have an announcement: it’s 2012!

…this is a pretty ironic picture being that I started my “no junk food” diet on the first…lol

So far so good for this year, I must say. I have spent the first few days with little sleep, lots of reading, playing video games, writing, and preparing for the return of college classes. Yes, my friends, I have been a bum. I do have exciting news though — very exciting news!

Already in 2012 I have been able to cross something off of my bucket list! Wootcakes! This morning I checked my email just to be informed of pure awesomeness. I now have 32 blog subscribers for EastCoastInsomnia (3 overnight)! This specific blog is for my poetry, and really has become my main source of attention over the last couple of months. If you are interested in this form of art, please feel free to check me out! (:

Thank you for all of your support in the last year and I hope to have more posts soon. Apologies to all who may feel abandoned and thanks to all who have supported me in my transition to what I truly love: my poetry. I hope that this year is tremendously successful for everyone, and maybe this will be the year that my writing truly takes off. (:

Stay awesome.

I’ve come to realize…

that time continues on with or without us.

You may be less surprised than I, but time really doesn’t care about our hurt feelings, grudges, hopes, dreams, or childhood aspirations. The common reply to most of these is “give it time”, when the truth of the matter is, time doesn’t care. He isn’t waiting around the corner, flowers in hand, and he most definitely isn’t standing at the end of the tunnel with his arms open wide. Father Time is not your pappy.

So what should we be saying if we aren’t giving the grand advice of time? How about “give it God”? What would happen if we gave our worries, anger, bitterness, and aching hearts to God? After all, he is with you at all time, and he created you in the very beginning. He cares for you. He is your father — the best one ever.

So, if you are in the melting pot of people who have been told to give it time, let me tell you something different: give it God. After that, just be. Do not try to make sense of it all, and most definitely do not try and fix it yourself. Give. It. God.
