Endure…endure…endure


Some days are just a little tougher than others and I’m just thinking out loud here while giving myself a pep talk. By nature I am a positive person, an optimist that always believes in the silver lining and the lessons that are to be learned in even the most challenging of situations. Im humble and I don’t rant much, but as you know it helps to get your thoughts into words and onto paper. It is one of those nights and writing allows me to make peace with whatever is bothering me. I usually get it out there, process it and hopefully be done with it and move on. Most of the time it works and if it is one thing I always try to do, I definitely try not take to bed with me. Chances are that if it bothers me at night, it will still be there in the morning to remind me that I haven’t properly dealt with the situation yet. For sure I could have used the war bonnet tonight as my inner warrior once again had to rise and stand up for common courtesies gone missing in rudeness.
Truth is that there are days we all feel a little defeated and I know that I am not the only one. Another reason to put this onto paper just in case somebody else needs a little pep talk. ❤️

*We endure letting time slip past us, having to perform mundane tasks that don’t touch our hearts.

*We endure not being given the chance to contribute while all we want to do is help and be heard.

*We endure to be treated with contempt as if we are not humane or worthy of compassion.
Truth is that our words sometimes fall onto deaf ears and nobody is listening.
*We endure that life simply is too busy and nobody takes time to make us a priority, even for a moment.

*We endure the lack of patience we are shown too often, to find it replaced with humiliation and belittling.

*We endure the fact that many think they are just a little bit more important than ourselves. At least according to their behavior and I am given the feeling that I matter very little.
Truth is, there will always be those days and you need to hold on to our beliefs. This will be hard on some days and you will be tested, but you will not stoop down to that level but instead practice forgiveness for those that are lost. You can do it…

Truth is, that you are unique and special and you have everything to offer. Don’t ever change that and don’t ever close your heart.

Truth is when you find yourself having to endure, remember that this too shall pass and better times are around the corner. And remember that you always have a choice and your new life is just a choice away.

No War bonnet tonight and it looks like it was more like “First Blood – Rambo style”

PS. And yes you have to be able to do something silly that pulls you out of the funk and helps you laugh it off. In my case it was a simple as wearing the belt of this shirt dress wrapped around my head which turned into Rambo. Did I already mention that I’m easily amused?

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. I do love your optimism! I usually jump around like a mad woman and do crappy impersonations that have my daughter glaring at me with a look that says: Really???
    Enjoy your hiking! I should do that myself. The lovely trails of the Peak District are less than 1 hour away from my home and I don’t go there enough. xx

  2. Totally rockin’ that belt if you ask me 😉 Writing is a vital process for human beings to make sense of the world. I’m reading a book about Academic Writing (for my studies) and the writers propose the theory that writing (even something like a thesis) is a performance. And in that performance we take ideas and thoughts that we’ve learned along the way and put it onto paper in an effort to articulate how we feel. So carry on performing and writing…and we’ll continue to read 🙂 Stay weird and wonderful you beautiful soul!

    1. What a beautiful response Kamalini and you always make my day. Thank you so much and once again your kindness is touching my heart.
      I read your words and it is always as if you have found a way to articulate what resides within my heart. We truly must be souls connected from afar and it takes one beautiful soul to know another. Thank you for always encouraging me and for being there. And most of all for always taking the time and understanding what I’m trying to express. Hugs my dear friend….

  3. I love this post, and the inspiration that gave me reading of the endurance provided by resisting some difficulties I feel cose to my life experience too…
    I love your style of writing too and as I’m improving my english with a special #UsetheenglishLuke contest I make to motivate myself, I took some of your words (the ones that I don’t know in english) to create one of my posts.
    If you like to see it you can find it here: https://lucapovoleri.wordpress.com/2016/09/15/saying-goodbye-to-that-summer-love/
    And of course any correction it will be an honor and a blessing for me as I’d like to be able to write like you someday! 🙂

    1. I feel very honored Luca and I can’t thank you enough. You are already an amazing writer and I love your blog. There may be some words here and there where the built of the sentence doesn’t flow as intended, but this comes with practice and time. The main thing is to keep at it and being around the language helps a lot. This may be a problem for you and maybe YouTube videos or any material in the English language can help. I learned it reading a book and translating / looking up the words I didn’t know. Much like you.
      It doesn’t have to be perfect and your passion for writing and your subjects comes through which is a talent not everybody has. Be proud of that and thank you for your kind words.

      1. Thank you very much to take time to read my text. Yes I feel moved by your text and you use some great words that gives color to my ideas. You’re right, perfections is not my aim, but I really like this language, it helps me getting more concise and direct as normally I write too much. English gives me balance, and well your post (i loved the uninstall negativity image) made me feel like I feel sometimes at night, waking up with those same feelings… so thank you for your attention and for the good ideas about youtube (i don’t really use it that much but I need to as you’re right it’s a great source for material). Have a great day and well… see you on your blog!! 😉

      2. Thank you Luca, your passion for the language will help you to perfect it. It’s always easier to learn when we show interest in something and while I don’t know how long you have been learning, I think you are doing amazing.
        As always, thank you for taking the time, have a great day.
        Italy is one of my most favorite countries and I visited often as I lived in Germany ❤️
