That’s where my demons lie 

I’m sure it’s safe to say that I speak for all of us when I say that life is not always a bed of roses. No matter how optimistic and positive we choose to be, how great our outlook is, or perhaps how much we search for the silver lining and the lesson that is to be learned, sometimes life is just plain tough and we are only human after all. In the blink of an eye we influence each other’s way of life and we can either make somebody’s day or break it. A gesture, a look, or a hurtful, uncalled comment could change somebody’s day or perhaps even send somebody over the edge. We don’t know how closely somebody is already standing to the edge and it could mean different things for different people. Perhaps they are hanging on by a thread and it could be you who gives that final push. Hard to imagine but I’m sure it is happening more times than we know.

The tongue has no bones and yet it is such a powerful weapon that it can leave it’s victims struggling and hurting for a lifetime. It leaves invisible scars that will alter your behavior and affect your confidence for eternity. You might become timid and shy, retreating to your inner safety of becoming an introvert and what is known to be a loner. You’ll be judged or might find it hard to associate with others. Warning: “Does not play well with others” might become your new label. 

From time to time life just happens and is overwhelming. Such feelings are often caused through the influence of others and it is not easy to put on your smiley face and turn the other cheek. It is disruptive to our soul and we lose ourselves in the struggle of finding our balance again. We are blinded by the pain and act out of character. And so it is that for those very moments when we can’t overcome, we lose the fight and ourselves in the battle, by letting our demons win for just a little while. 



I'm a dreamer and hopeless romantic who believes that there is always a silver lining to everything. Now, inspired by the simple life, I have learned that less is more and that we find magic all around us if we take the time to notice. Life is a journey and a process that is ever changing. We are constantly evolving in the matter of who we are as we align our stars and shed a past no longer in line with our highest self. I don't easily fit conventional norms, not because I'm a rebel, but because of resenting the pull that threatens to take me away from my true beliefs and my unique personal identity. I support the power of "Choice" and the ability for us to be the architects of our own lives. Some of these choices should have something a little wild about them as they form the moments that forever stay edged in our memory and make our hearts beat with wonder. Nobody will remember the ordinary. For myself, I'm a warrior who has fallen many times, who has gone through trails an tribulations and who is no stranger to adversity. After all, my choice remains clear, to get back up and stand stronger than ever. To recognize that it often takes our darkest moments to mold us into who we were meant to be. I have learned to trust the process and stay positive through the challenges. I trust it to be the only way to prevent my heart from hardening and allowing bitterness to creep in. I believe in the power of "NOW" as it is the only moment we truly ever have. The past is gone, unchangeable and the future hasn't happened yet. All we can impact is the current moment. Everything starts with a choice and hopefully with one that has something wild about it and may even scare you to death to execute. DO IT...I promise you won't regret it. This blog is my voice to share my Journey. If I could describe this adventure in short, I would call it "Spiritual awakening" with a yearning for "Freedom" and going after the things that truly matter. To seek a less complicated life that is stripped down from the many obligations and responsibilities that often tie us down. For me it is a life free of rules and regulations, one that allows me to escape the must expectations while jumping off the hamster wheel that is spinning faster all the time. To be on my own time and live each day to the fullest, to make it all slow down by banishing routine and unleashing my creativity/artistic values in an effort to entertain whatever subject comes to mind. And if lucky, to perhaps offer a different view to my readers, one that speaks to your soul vs. the demands of what society might expect. It is one that empowers you to be your unique self and follow the beat of your own drum. I am dreaming big as I trail blaze the path to a new life and becoming a storyteller. I find my inspiration in the little things in life, in Mother Nature and on the trail that provides the adventures and the backdrop for a book someday. My hope is to inspire "Courage" in others who might find themselves on the brink of taking that first step. This blog serves as a foundation for my collection of personal thoughts, opinions and experiences and by no means am I an expert on any topics mentioned. To my readers I would say that the universe connects us by a common thread, we all search and we all have something to say. We don't always have to meet in person to share a strong bond and people enter our path for a reason. Some stay for a short time and serve their purpose, while others teach us a lesson and help us become stronger through experience. And a few special ones remain as the treasures we hold dear over a lifetime and touch our hearts beyond means. In whatever way we are meant to be, I thank you for crossing my path and for stopping by. I hope that I have left you inspired, full of wonder and with a few "Wild Choices" to make....Hugs XO

  1. This is so very true, that’s why I try real hard to always smile and be kind and helpful to others. And it hurts me inside when someone speaks negative about others even tho they are not present. One person CAN make a difference❤️


    1. And that is true also and I call it the power of one and might write about it in a later post. One person can make a difference.
      There are many reasons as to why not stoop to that level, retaliate or behave poorly, but we also don’t know what battles somebody is fighting to act this way.


      1. We are all humans…. And I guess nearly everyone walks through the path one day or the other…. But the way u have put all those words Together display both pain and the gleam of hope one should carry to erase it…. Keep going….
