A series of non-coincidental events

It was a series of new found likes and non-coincidental events that formed the birth of Rhapsody Bohème. I discovered the name itself through two independent words that found their way into my mind. How it came to be and why, remains a mystery to me but perhaps some things are just meant to happen and are not to be questioned. 

Rhapsody – An effusively enthusiastic or ecstatic expression of feelings was the definition from the dictionary. I found it to be fitting and it was hitting the nail right on the head since a variety of emotions and feelings were ruling my days as of lately.
Bohemian – Gypsy, wanderer. A person, musician, artist or writer who lives a free spirited life and believes in truth, freedom and love. A definition I immediately found myself drawn to for various reasons even I didn’t understand them in all their glorious detail yet. From de-cluttering my life to a less is more lifestyle, to the quotes, the fashion and the careless, often responsibility lightened existence of life. I was hunger driven to implement the steps necessary for my future Bohemian life and making it a reality to become a free spirit. I think I might have always been carefree, but I needed a catalyst, something to jolt me awake and enable me to witness what was happening. 
I had reached a point where Life had become quite questionable. I didn’t realized it at the time, but it was a life changing transformation that I was seeking. Trying to figure out what exactly it was that had to change, would prove to be a challenge, but I was full of hope and inspiration to find out. I believed and with my high hopes my experiences started to change. For the first time I observed the “signs”, the gentle nudges that guided my path and the life shattering events that forced me to my knees. 
I’m not sure how it all began and at which part of this transformation I currently reside, but I’m on my way and I feel content as the ending is still being written. Living in the now, one thing is for certain and that is that I am in the midst of the biggest journey of my life. A journey of coming home, finding my purpose and finding

Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

        I nominated you but understand if this is not your thing and you are under no obligation. Just curious what quotes ring true for you. Have a great week also 😉

      2. Thanks for the nomination. (How do I check it?) Cancerians may feel some of the poop (literally) that Capricorns are feeling as Pluto (the bowels, among other things) stations direct. Even so, keep your eyes open (for an opportunity)!

        You are welcome for the nomination and it’s under an earlier post from today / 3 day quote challenge that I wrote.

  2. The journey you describe sounds very familiar. I hope I have moved past my own ‘life shattering events that forced me to my knees’ and am now well on my way to finding my own purpose. I have started following the little nudges, too. Quite an interesting experience!
