Boho Girl 

I came across some writing tonight and they are great words to live by. Each line resonated and spoke to my core, the instinctual side of me, the intuition, the wildness that can’t be tamed and needs freedom to fully exist and the carefree, playful nature that often doesn’t want to see the seriousness life can bring. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. They are not my own words, but couldn’t be more fitting for when it comes to my aspirations and the qualities I already live by. Plus I can’t help but think that they have been a little inspiration for my blog name, long before I even had the chance to read them. 😉

Just the other day one of my dear followers commented to have noticed something new in my posts. Humor. I love to laugh just as much as the next person and I don’t mind to make a fool out of myself to entertain others, but the comment made me realize that I have kept this side of me mostly hidden. It made me ponder and acknowledge just how many different sides there are to me and that it wasn’t intentional to keep any of it hidden or left out. Sometimes we simply don’t notice until somebody points it out to us. His comment made me feel grateful to embrace my versatility and the adaptive nature that has always served me well. I’m happy about the many sides to myself and being a unique, non cookie cutter version. I like to play outside, hike, camp and I don’t mind getting dirty. But, equally I like to doll up, have fun in a different sense and pursue the adventure of an artistic nature. 

It’s always good to have the best of both worlds and being flexible. I’m sure some of you will relate through your own experiences and I hope you will enjoy this as much as I did. Here is to you Boho-Girl….Xo 🦋💙

Boho Girl….

Free. Radical. Independent. 

Her style is her own. 

It’s personal, existential. 

Her only fear is convention. 

Her only weakness, shoes.

The bump on her nose adds character, 

the scar on her shoulder adds strengths,

the curl in her hair adds attitude. 

There is no such thing as imperfection,

just originality.

Unmovable, Unshakable, Unstoppable,

She is America’s next top role model.

Someone both inspired and inspiring. 

She embraces her spirituality, 

aspires to her dreams,

lives through her passions.

She is a world changer.

She is bohemian. 

She is a boho girl.

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. I have a wild spirit and I’m not easily boxed into conventional masses. I follow my own beliefs and I’m not afraid to stay true to myself. I tend to go against the grain to find my own truths and I will never lose who I am just because I might be expected to act a certain way. I am me and what you see is what you get. Just a few for starters and there is much more to the subject.

      1. I would have to know which posts confuse you, but like I said 99.9% are my pictures. It’s only natural some look a little different as most are from my adventures hiking and they are hardly glamorous. It really doesn’t matter to me and when I say “What you see is what you get” it’s a form of referring to a sense of self without the need to disguise oneself for acceptance, that’s all.

  1. I just read this and felt like my life was in these letters. This is just me, I can’t believe it. I’m identifying as a bohemian girl for a long time and that’s what several of my blog posts are about, but nothing ever summed it up so perfectly. Thank you a lot for sharing this! xo

    1. Awe this makes me very happy and I’m so happy you liked it. If you consider yourself bohemian than you most likely go against the grain and you don’t fit into conventional ways of doing things. It also means you stand alone at times but being true to yourself is the only way to go. So good for you and welcome to your tribe. We are out there and are sending much light your way. Happy new year. Hugs
