The whole mission behind Write My Universe is to share words of insight, wit and wisdom about life that uplifts, inspires and encourages others. To challenge perspectives and foster a deeper sense of awareness. Why? Because I believe that we all have the power to rewrite our life stories and become the greatest versions of ourselves. We can follow our dreams, create our dream lives and enrich the lives of those around us, but we can’t do it alone…

Welcome to the tribe.

late summer poetry poem about sunset nature poetry
Peachy in the afterglow
Sit and talk with me a while, said the sky,clouds passing by, peachy in the afterglow of late summer rain. Talk with me a while,and reconcilethat truth held hidden in your heart,we could start with the things that you need, you miss;the things which cause you pain? Come and sit with me a while,take it in,breathe deep that fresh-fallen vitality,instant, complete reality; Sit with me a while, in ...

positive affirmation of the day I am worthy self-confidence in the face of self-doubt
Affirmation Of The Day – I AM WORTHY
It's time to remind yourself; I AM WORTHY. How often is our self-worth based on other people's ideas or opinions? How often do we limit ourselves based on other people's expectations or suggestion of what is best for us? Although their words may not be damaging, we begin to live within someone else's definitions of that which we seek; love, happiness, success, they are all defined by our ...

fall autumn poem gracefully summer lowers her head
Gracefully Summer Lowers Her Head
I walked today, eyes gazing skyward to the canopy of green above; glorious green speckled with ochre, stippled, resplendent in the final throws of summer. The sun fading daily as nights draw in, as though the leaves are stealing it’s weakening rays, mirroring, mimicking sunshine for the darker days ahead. And summer begins to lower her head to autumn’s glorious crown, ablaze in every shade of umber, gold and ...

The Leaf, It Knew…
It fell, it flew, And in that moment my heart grew. Floating through the air, Without a worry, not a care, For its job, it was done, In one turn of the sun, And my heart, yes it grew, For I knew that it knew… This poem was originally posted on my Medium.com account on September 6th 2018 ...

trail of stardust following dreams poem uplifting poetry
Stardust
Stardust - A poem about dream chasing There is always a trail of stardust hidden right under your nose, It's up to you to follow it, To see how far it goes. As somewhere deep within you incandescent dreams do grow, If you dare to follow the stardust, To see how far it goes. This poem was originally posted on my Medium.com account on September 8th 2018 ...

Self Reflection At The Drive-Thru Of Life…
At the drive-thru of life... The funny thing about problems is that when you’re stuck in the middle of them, you have no perspective. It’s all skewed, all warped, and sometimes it takes an awfully long time away to gain the clarity needed to regain the parts of you that you lost and walk away in completion. Sometimes we never allow ourselves the time or headspace to reclaim our lost ...

face your fear fear is a gift
Fear
I sat and stared at my computer screen for over twenty minutes. The words were stationary on the page, the same email I had written and rewritten for 8 days in my head. Half vacant and gripped with fear, pondering what would happen when I pressed send. Musing over the possibilities, running the endless script of negative inner-chatter; "are they going to laugh at what I've written?"... "I'm ...

How motherhood turned me grey…
Have you ever heard a mother say "My children turned me grey!"? It sounds cliché, but I learned the truth of  this saying, just in a completely unexpected way. Before I became one I had no idea what it meant to be a mother, or how the whole process would change me. And by change me I mean tear me apart, redesign me both physically and emotionally, before ...

Messages from music past…
There's only one thing better than discovering new music - that is the rediscovery of music that once shook your soul. A song once so important you didn't go a day without blasting it out, full volume; the album became the soundtrack to your life. And then something changes.  There's a new band, a new song, a new album; a new life. And before you know it over ...

When it’s best to do nothing…
In a world of constant activity and social interaction, it can be impossible to do nothing. We've all been there, that moment you find yourself in the middle of a personal conflict that you didn't anticipate. When without reason, or understanding, you become the centre of someone else's concern. Your actions and words called into question, along with your character. And you have no idea how you got ...

Boot prints on the moon
Perhaps it's just me, but this full-blue-super moon has made me a little crazy today. Emotionally I'm quite responsive to the lunar cycle on a fairly subconscious level, but after years of my mum telling me "it's the full moon!", I have to concur, there's a pattern. I spent the day trying to write, confused, with all of this 'life' stuff going wrong and feeling like my brain ...

Why we never went back to the dance class…
Recently I took my two eldest daughters to a dance class. For most of their lives we have danced in the evening – we find it a great way to shake off the day, and no matter what preceded it, the day would end on a happy note. Taking it in turns to pick songs, we discovered new music together, and that music became the soundtrack to our ...

Arbre Solitaire
When it comes to writing poetry I often find inspiration in the most unusual places. In this instance it was during the return journey from a very normal day out with my family. Driving through the countryside my partner excitedly shouted for me to look at a tree; one of those classic moments where you can't look fast enough. Until I saw it. Out of the very last ...
