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”

Author:

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. 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. 😉
