Autumnal Aesthetics

 

Gratified – all glory to autumnal aesthetics

For lilac skies, milky cream clouds, hot cider

For burning leaves that crunch, crinkle, clashing their consonances in

the wind.

For round, peeping hollows gleaming, glittering, carved in fright

Their purpose known to those who admire, sharing the story of the steady night

 

Maroons, browns, rich in chocolate allure

Delight, dazzling fire burning – ignite

Beauty in the decayed, when things fall to their end

Praise Autumn!

First World Problems. 

 

-Individuality.

An idea omitted and replaced with affinity towards identical thinking.

-Identity.

Established through the perception of others.

                 -Selfless Disposition.

Terminology that has been joylessly expunged from souls, replaced with envy and greed.

Compassion.

A subject caught up, lost, and drifted away like stubborn waves of the sea.

Generosity

A word gone to hibernate for the winter, never to return from its gloomy cave.

-Happiness.   

Gained from ownership of material items, manifested through flashy colors and gaudy gadgets.

 

These ideals of the present are the demise of our future.

After much growing and maturing, I have learned to put the breaks on my emotional reactions. I am a born and raised Italian.. it is in my blood to react quickly and become sassy! However, the past few years have taught me a lot. Pause.

After many experiences with irrational people, I have evolved. I was tired of fighting back with people who could never be wrong. Now I no longer give a reaction to negativity. I think it is extremely important to remember to PAUSE. Do not let emotions cloud judgement and reactions to minor annoyances. If someone is irrational, you will never win. Playing into their games and reacting will spark up their fire. Don’t give their narcissistic drama the time of day or your precious energy; that is YOUR energy and they do not deserve to drain it from you. I remember this by repeating the word “unbothered” to myself in these tempered situations. I challenge you to do the same.

Just tell them to SWERVE and walk away.

Much love. XoXo. Angela

I am a writer, a listener and a speaker.

I believe in myself, as well as the magnificent students in my classroom.

I want sincere happiness for those who carry the burden of protecting my heart.

I am a writer, a listener and a speaker.

 

I feel excited about my future as a lover of learning.

I wonder, can admiration conquer hate in this cruel world?

I worry that countless, valiant efforts will not lead to triumphant victories.

I am a writer, a listener and a speaker.

 

I understand that I am Angela Prendergast and I am my own person; responsible for both careless and thoughtful actions alike.

I am understood by the misunderstood.

 I am a writer, a listener and a speaker.
