Those days…

We all have those days…..

The days when being strong all the time catches up with us, 

The days we feel like lowering our guard,

Because we have been strong for too long.

The days when it’s not always easy to fight the good fight,

But we do it anyways, for we would lose ourselves if we didn’t. 

The days that seem unfair and unjust, and the days that just don’t make sense. 

I’m talking about the days when our heart hurts and we can’t hold back the tears,

No matter how optimistic and positive our outlook might be.

When the actions of others cut us deep and leave us wounded, 

In those days that lack compassion and love from our fellow humans.

The days we forgive anyways for they do not know any better,

And it is not up to us to judge or revenge.

And finally the days we are being taken because giving is all that we know. 

Today was such a day and today I feel tired.  


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 💙🦋

  1. Well, I hope that you find that peace soon that your searching for, and sometimes we have to search deep and that makes things around you really tiring at times. I know that it will get better for you, I believe it there is no other choice of the matter in this. Hang in there my spiritual tiger, for my wings reach around you this day and hug you even tighter than normal as I transform some of my energy into your spirit…
