And it continues…

The storm is not over yet and more surprises might still be in store. I’m thinking positive vibes here, but I’m preparing. I got “The Pony” back just a little while ago and there are pros and cons. Of course I’m glad to have her back, but she is not fully well yet. 

The pro is that she won’t stall unexpectedly anymore and therefore there won’t be any loss of power steering or power brakes. Definitely a plus as I don’t have to worry being caught of guard which is usually in those moments when you need your brakes and steering the most. 

The con is that she idles too high now, but only if you run it with the air on. Yeah go figure that one and at the moment “The Pony” has turned into a “Mystery Mare”. So if you have any idea as to why this might be happening, please let me in on the secret. Thank you kindly 😉

She got three new parts and at roughly $250 later, paid so far, my mechanic didn’t even charge me for the labor yet. Once she is a 100% and I’m happy with her, we will look at taking care of that he said. I’m still impressed with his service and the kindness and care I have found in his work ethic. He also put $20 in the tank and never even charged me. Wow…almost hard to believe. In the meantime I will drive her for a few days until my next days off and see if the computer will re-learn (it is currently in a learning/reset mode) how to proper….well, how to properly behave I guess. Fingers crossed once more. 


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. Ah the mysteries and joys and burdens of keeping the ride alive. Sounds like you are meeting each new challenge with optimism and you have a good mechanic helping. You’ll see it’ll come together for you and it’ll be like new.

    1. Haag yeah for sure but like I said I can’t complain and she has been a very reliable car for me. I try to stress less these days and believe more. It has served me well and should this one have more surprises in store, well I will deal with it then. 😉

      1. I believe so too and why fight what we can’t control anyways. I rather trust and believe that everything will work out the way it was meant to be even if I don’t like it initially. There is always a reason and always a lesson to be learned as I search for the silver lining in it all. Have a beautiful day.
