Life is hard…..sometimes

Life is hard right now, but perhaps everything is the way it needs to be, even if we can’t see it at times and are left unable to envision what’s to come. Maybe it is the uncertainty and no matter how positive and optimistic we are, there is always an element of the unknown which is frightening. And then there is hope and whatever else we choose to believe in. We need something to cling to and something that we can hold on to with every shred of our being. To pull us through the darkness, the pain and to give us hope and reassurance for better days. 

Tonight I came across an old picture I once saved and tonight I re-read the lines to let them calm me and rest assured that everything will fall into place once more, like it always does. 



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. You are absolutely right my dear friend. You know how optimistic I am and that I always see the glass half full, but sometimes, just sometimes I can see where people can lose their way and become negative and bitter.
      Life sure is no easy beast to conquer but hopefully a truly rewarding one in the end if we stay the course and continue to believe in the lessons it brings.
      Thank you for the hug, it was much needed tonight. Xo

      1. I’m that person you just described. I used to be Mr. Optimistic, then I crashed extremely hard and I was sad, depressed, miserably negative and bitter.
        But now, now I’m becoming MISS Optimistic. 😉

      2. And it makes me beyond happy that you are finding your way back. You know it takes a strong person not to drown in self pity and sorrow. I know you are strong and sometimes I say “the hell with always being strong”. Sometimes there has to be a release, a weak moment, a time to lean on a comforting shoulder, a time to sob. As long as we don’t lose ourselves and find our way back no matter how long it takes. I’m proud to know you and to call you my friend, and you know I truly mean that.

      3. I know. It been three years since the side effects from rheumatoid arthritis stole my tears. It’s awful, as I want to cry but never feel the release from a tear running down my face.
        I cry (without tears and mainly just making an awful ugly face) and it feels the pain remains stuck inside without feeling better or relieved afterwards.
