Fairies at Dusk

Just the other day I wrote a post titled A moment in time , sharing my experience with a former coworker and pointing out that it doesn’t take much on our part to make someone’s day a little brighter. And once again this is exactly what my friend Roda did here, dedicating this beautiful, full of magic post to me. Every time something like this happens or I get nominated for an award, it seems to flood my heart with emotions of gratitude and feelings that I struggle to articulate. I’m truly blessed to have found so many wonderful people here on wordpress and this blog has made such a big difference to me. It has allowed me to help and inspire a few people, but on a yet bigger scale it has inspired me and strengthened my faith in humanity and all things good. Leading a busy life and falling into a routine often presents a struggle to engage with such people in real life. I mean the people we meet in person as we rush past each other and chase our obligations, trying to cram everything into a day that never seems to be long enough to accomplish it all. This post made me pause yet again as I wonder how many wonderful opportunities we pass up each day! How many inspirational stories of survival and fighting for our beliefs stand before us and we never know. How many of us rush by such precious childhood memories of catching fairies to protect and keep us safe!
Thank you for this beautiful tribute and reminding me of all the wonders big and small my dear fairy sister. You are one in a million and I say it again that if you still haven’t visited Roda’s blog, “Well what are you waiting for?”. The world / we all need inspiration and she truly is a master of empowering everybody to live up to their full potential. XOXO

Growing Self

When I was a little girl, I would run through the backyard with a mason jar, filled with grass and twigs, waiting to catch fairies at dusk. It was a good thing the mosquitoes never liked my blood. Although, I was afraid of the dark, I could not stay away from this summer ritual.

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
