Forever Daddy’s Girl 

Today was a big day. I’m glad I got to spend some time outside, even if it meant that I got sidetracked from what I really should have been doing. I needed (wanted) to get away, on a day-trip adventure and I didn’t resist all that much as a distraction presented itself.

Today was my Dad’s birthday and it’s been nearly 43 years that he passed. It’s hard to believe at times and his passing is one thing time has not healed in all the years. Time has made it easier to accept that he will never return and come home from work, that very day he left and died, but time has also shown me that I will miss him for the rest of my days. He was a special man and it means a lot to me to have so many of his traits. A mini version of him that is not all that mini anymore.

Today was also my Mom’s big day in the hospital. My cousin texted me saying that she is doing good but now comes the wait for the results, to hopefully get some answers and see what’s next. She has been on my mind and I feel bad that I’m not there. To hold her hand and just be there other than in spirit. Sometimes that just doesn’t seem enough and you need to be there in person I think. A big “Thank you” to everybody for your kind words and prayers in regards to my Mom.

So both of my parents have been on my mind today. I look like my Mom but my soul and the silliness comes from my Dad and if I look deep inside my heart, I know that we had a special bond that can’t be broken. Even beyond death it remains strong and I know that I will be forever “Daddy’s Girl”.

I love you….❤

And now the owl has shown up and is hooting outside my window. I still have mixed emotions about the owl, but will believe in the positive and that a great honor has been bestowed upon me to be paid a visit.

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

  2. Do you ever wonder if that owl is your father sitting there telling you something? Just another thought that I had, and the reason being is because I know that he been gone for 43 years, but has he really been gone 43 years to you? I know that your thinking where I am going with this, but again this lesson is from my Master and it’s made to make you think outside the box a little bit.

    But I am glad that you posted this on your blog, it makes me think of my little coyote and it’s tells me to appreciate what is in front of me as well. Hard to think that life does what it does to us, but I will say what you said really warmed this crane heart this evening.

    And I am still praying for your mother and hope that her results come back the way you want them to come back. Good luck on this my tiger. And stay strong the best way you know how…

    1. I don’t know and in the physical sense he had been long even though I feel him near and his touch on many occasions. He is always a part of me just as I am always a part of him. I’m proud to be like him in so many ways and my sense of humor comes from him. I believe the care he had for others and the way he carried himself, I often find myself reminded if him through my own actions.
      Thank you for your kind words.

      1. Your most welcome, and I just think that he is following you around more than your thinking at times. When my mother was murdered in 2010, I for awhile thought that she was gone for good, then I realized she has always been there for me. I know that she was killed over the drugs and drinking and that is why to this day I never been drunk, or did any drugs for that matter.

        But in the end I realize that the spirit is strong with you if you let it become you in the times of your life. And I knew she loved me inside, but I take a part of her with me everyday, and that is her beautiful smile like you seen in that picture of me and my daughter, and I take from her that even though she lived a hell of her own, that she never once didn’t believe in the spirit. And now you know where I get my spiritual side from yes, Master raised me when my mother could not, but she raised me in the sense of never stopping having hope. Sometimes hope is all we have in the end. Okay, sorry more information that you needed at this time. But just know that your spiritual side must of came from your father as well… Again just some thoughts…
