Mighty doesn’t know size


Look at this picture of a little friend, I shot during my recent backpacking trip. There he was, starring off into the distance. His gaze filled with content as if he was lost in a beautiful dream. I didn’t think much of it as I was looking through the viewfinder of my camera, but at home and while seeing it on a bigger screen, it brought a different message. I made a couple quick adjustments until the contrast and lightening was exactly how I wanted it. “Cute little guy”, I thought initially as I took my first glance, thinking that that was it. But apparently there was more and a few words spilled over my lips as I heard myself say, “Mighty is the one full of spirit and spunk”. I’m not quiet sure where this came from and I don’t remember any thought process that lead up to this statement. The words vocalized before my mind could even think them and I still don’t remember the thought originating in my own mind. I felt guided, as if someone was speaking through me, to speak of a message that needed to be conveyed about this Picture that would become a piece of wisdom and advice along my journey.

The main words that stand out to me are MIGHTY….SPIRIT….and Spunk.

Spirit: Helps us all to deal with anything that comes our way. “That’s the spirit”, I’m sure you heard that saying before. “Keep your spirits up” may be another you heard during challenging times. Most likely always easier said than done, but I hope it will always be your first choice. Without it, few things remain and you will find yourself on a downward spiral before you are ready to hold on. Mighty is the one that can keep spirit on their side throughout adversity and find positivity in the lessons of life without getting bitter. 

Spunk: In order to support spirit, you also need spunk. A bravery and courage that keeps you on track during times when you feel like giving up. It’s the audacity and the backbone when you question yourself. It’s the very moment a “Why me” turns into a  “Try me” and is filled with such conviction that won’t allow for anything but success. It’s the confindence to keep going, to be strong and face whatever it is you owe this fight of your life to. Mighty is the one that can smile into the face of adversity and find the silver lining through the process and the pain. 

Tonight and in my little corner of the world, looking at this picture, the quote seems relevant and mighty doesn’t know size. It comes in all packages and it always takes courage and strengths.

“Mighty is the one full of spirit and spunk”

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. Great story. ‘Spunk’ does mean different things in different cultures though: here in Australia it means you’re handsome, & in England it means a man’s sperm! So ‘bravery or courage’ may be better for the quote if you’re going global with it…?

    1. Haha perhaps and I’ll leave it up to people how they want to interpret it and if they want to waiver from my description of its meaning for this instance lol. Maybe being full of handsome and sperm is not all that bad either at times hahahaha. Love it….

      1. Thank you my friend 😉, so make it a day full of spunk, whichever meaning might be fitting for you at the current moment. If you ask me, there is nothing wrong with a day filled with handsome and who knows, that could lead to some other spunky adventures lol. Oh boy, that one got away from me. 😉
