Last week’s prompt of ‘The Road Not Travelled’ saw some amazing and truly heartfelt posts in the link-up. This week’s Spotlight Post was a Spotlight Round-up which was done by Swirling Fire. She chose posts from Melody Insights, Francesca Demont and Steeled Snake Charmer. Read her thoughts in F4Thought #120 - Round-Up

Prompt #121 - Secrets

From little secrets that are relatively harmless to big secrets that can change the course of someone’s life, we’ve all experienced some kind of secret-keeping in our lifetime. Sometimes they are best shared, sometimes the less said about them the better. What kind of secrets have you kept? And which ones have you shared?

With over twenty wonderful posts it seemed like it would be best to have a spotlight three. Thanks again to Annie Savoy for letting us use her image as the header and without further ado I will hand over to Swirly who has chosen the round up for this week... Many thanks to Swirly too ;-)

F4Thought #120 - The Road Not Taken

#F4Thought #120 ~ The Road Not Taken

#F4Thought #120 ~ The Road Not Taken ~ what kind of person do you think you would be, or what would you be doing now, if you had taken a different road?

Some very emotive themes were bought up for last weeks topic of moments and memories. I was grateful that Melody was choosing the spotlight with so many great entries to chose from.

Spotlight Post #119 ~ by Melody

The 'Memories' prompt for #F4Thought was one I was going to sit out. So I was delighted to be asked to
the road not taken
#119 Spotlight Post
take part by picking the spotlight post.

The posts were as varied as I hoped for. Some memories being tough, others poignant and some being more whimsical. I don't look at this as picking a winner, it's too subjective for that. When it comes to choosing a post it boils down to the very intangible 'how did it make me feel?'

To this end I've chosen "These Moments In Time" by Submissy. It reminded me just how much the big things depend on grasping and enjoying the little things that can seem inconsequential and in doing so brought a big smile to my face.

"The moments made are the little things, the things that we could easily do without, those moments in time that, once passed, will never be thought of again. They are insignificant to the turning of the wheels of life but so important nonetheless. Without them, something never-known and never-missed is lost. With them, something undetectable and unquantifiable is gained. It is a strange irony but I have tried to grasp those thoughts and make them moments in time, for from those small gestures, larger things are born." READ MORE...

F4Thought #119 - Memories, Moments and Wanting More

Memories, Moments & Wanting More #F4Thought
#F4Thought #119 Memories, Moment & Wanting More
We got a wonderful variety of posts last week, some focusing on safewords in the BDSM contexts, other considering words that made our fellow bloggers feel safe within their relationship or sexual dynamics. Thank you to Francesca Demont for suggesting the prompt for us, we also left the tough choice of which post would be the spotlight post this week. I think you’ll agree she picked a fab one. 

Spotlight Post #118

When I proposed the prompt for F4Thought #118, I had no idea what responses it would
#F4TSpotlight by Francesca Demont
generate.  I was just curious how others felt about the use of safewords or words that make you feel safe. The experience that is reflected in the thought-provoking posts is obviously impossible to capture in a single highlight.  The post that prompted me to sit up and think about my own experience came from Sweetgirl. 

“I know there are some long term couples who rarely use their Safewords, so much so, that they might say they don’t need one, but, it could be argued that this is because they do not push into those RED areas anymore, they are content within the scope of play they have.” Read More

F4Thought #118 - Safe Words

#F4Thought #116 ~ safe words
#F4Thought #118 ~ Safe Words 

I have loved all your kissing posts. Some had me longing for that kiss that makes butterflies flutter in your stomach. Often when you have just met someone. But it was wonderful to read so many of you still experience that with a long-term partner. 

Spotlight Post #117

So choosing just one of the posts was difficult. But I found I couldn't quite forget what Annabel wrote
safe words
#F4Thought #117 Spotlight Post
about her early days with Raven. A part of me is envious of people who have stuck with their first love/first kiss person. This post made me feel all of that – and it is super hot too.

The kiss is all consuming. I am no longer aware of anything outside of our embrace. I can no longer hear his siblings bantering in the other room. I am intensely focused on the feelings I am experiencing. I find myself in familiar territory of yearning for something but not really knowing what it is. So as we are prone to doing, we start exploring each other to see what offers us relief or heightens the sensation.”    READ MORE …

F4Thought #117 - Kissing

#F4Thought #117 Kissing
Thank you to everyone who joined us for our first week back after our break as we set the wheels in motion for our new schedule. We returned with a fairly intense topic but you didn’t let us down and we got a great variety of posts. 

#116 Spotlight Post

#F4TSpotlight Post
Choosing a spotlight post for a topic like this isn’t easy. Each one shared a unique experience and I nodded along in agreement with so many of the thoughts shared. The piece that really got me in the feels though was Me, You, Us by Zebra Rose. Not only were the points made all too relatable but it was also beautifully written. 

You’re allowed to say no. You’re free to decline. You don’t owe anyone your attention or affection, and you shouldn’t have to sacrifice yourself to earn theirs. But beware; if you choose rejection, you do so at your own risk.’ Read More
