In a nutshell

I thought it was time to update the “About”page on my blog, and the old one was nearly three years old. Many new faces have come aboard since then, and I hope this gives a better perspective of who I am, and why I write. Welcome to my blog and thank you for your loyalty if you have been here already. Xoxo 💙🦋

Who am I….in a nutshell and why I’m writing.

I’m a dreamer in a world that has become too busy. I’m a big child that laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. I’ve come full circle and had it all, and yet I had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments instead of stuff. Less is more, quality over quantity. I am a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. I find myself going against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but it is the only way to not lose yourself.

I come from a world that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. In the end it is that we all have a story to tell, that we all seek to be understood, and we all yearn to be heard and accepted. 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, while our life is passing us by.

It’s never too late and it was my toughest moments, who turned out to be my greatest teachers. The signs are always there, if we are ready and can slow down enough to see them.

They say 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 and to learn how to dance in the rain. I had plenty of challenges, but I learned to believe in the silver lining. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Every emotion, good and bad is part of being alive.

Today I am here to tell my story, in the hopes that it brings inspiration and strengths to others, to face another day. I know you are out there and I know you are suffering in silence. You are not alone and your voice is being heard.

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 💙🦋
