Nothing to lose

The older we get,

the more we understand that it is ok

to live a life others don’t understand.

The secret lies in realizing that we have nothing to lose and in finding the courage to pursue what speaks to us…regardless, 🦋💙

Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer and 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 has purpose. I’ve made mistakes, and I see them as a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time. 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 of the hamster wheel to change my future. I didn’t land all that softly, but I still did it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of memories and I chase moments, instead of martial stuff. Less is more, and I prefer quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. Talking about free, I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. I find myself going 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 find a way, you soon realize that it is the only way to not lose who you are.
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 now I believe that the past is history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end I realize that we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard, to be accepted, and to find our spot in life. We try hard to fit in, some to the point of acting out of character, playing by the rules of what we think society expects of us. Until we wake one day, feeling empty and lost, with our life passing right in front of us. It’s never too late to change your stars, and it was my toughest moments, who turned out to be my greatest teachers.
They say that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it was darkness who has shown me 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. Absolutely true. I am much happier with who I am at 51 than I was at 21. You get a sense of perspective and have survived a lot of crap but emerged the other side stronger and wiser for it. And one realises that love and kindness achieves more than ambition and competitiveness, which is very freeing also. Lovely post.

    1. So, so true and wise words spoken from experience. It’s so nice to see that I’m not alone in this and that more people feel the same. There is a common ground, a understanding that often doesn’t require words. I feel if I met you, I could just look into your eyes, nod my head and without saying anything, a thousand words would pass between us.

      1. I expect you are right my friend. Keep strong through this busy month. We both know it will pass and then we can look forward to spring😀
        I liked the picture too. You are one of those people that really suit hats. My wife is too. I definitely am not.

      2. Thank you D, you are right and thank you for your kind words. It’s crazy to think it’s almost over already and the year is coming to an end. Where does the time go. Yes the holiday stress will be gone but then you have soft sales afterwards and hardly any people working because there is no payroll to be spent and you end up in the same stressful situation. I think it’s the nature of retail and I feel I have some choices ahead of me.
        Glad you liked the picture, I love hats and I share that passion with my fairy sister Roda. 😉
