12 Poems From "The Sun And Her Flowers" You Should Read

You are unstoppable once you realize you don't need anyone but yourself.

12 Poems From "The Sun And Her Flowers" You Should Read
Ida Domingo

Most of you may be familiar with Rupi Kaur’s collection of poetry, “Milk and Honey.” Well, another one of her poetry books have been a great read and a must share! “The Sun and Her Flowers” much like her other book are split into different parts: wilting, falling, rooting, rising and blooming. This book is about the journey of love and all the feelings you go through as well as learning to empower yourself through it all.

Everything Kaur said in this book, I related on a spiritual level, even if I haven’t experienced those emotions myself. Her words and art are beautifully thrown together in this wonderful book! “The Sun and Her Flowers” makes you feel feelings you haven’t and teaches you lessons you need to learn. If you haven’t already, give “Milk and Honey” a try as well because I’m a very big fan of her work and the messages they portray.

Here are some poems from the book that I believe people must read because it may retake your life as a woman or just anyone who relates:

1. You are unstoppable once you realize you don't need anyone but yourself

2. For once, look at life through your eyes, not a lens

3. Be patient

4. It's good to have goals, and it's even better to want to keep trying again if you fail

5. Be around people that make you happy and make you a better person

6. Quit comparing yourself to others, you are who you are and where you should be

7. Know not everyone is there for you for good reasons, pick the right ones

8. Remember your roots

9. Don't let others define what beauty means for you

10. You go through the bad before you get to the good

11. It's not selfish or shallow

12. Stay humble and kind

Hopefully, I didn’t spoil it too much for you and if you do choose to read it, you love it as much as I do because there are wonderful messages.

Six Lies Fed to Your Mind, By Your Mind.

These thoughts will drive you mad.


Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
