A royal LOL

I’m already apologizing to my British friends, the Queen and Prince Charles for what I’m about to write, but it’s too funny not to post. It was a welcome and priceless moment. You have to understand that things are not always easy with Mom, so this lol moment was simply marvelous.

Mom loves her gossip magazines, especially the ones which talk about the royals and other famous people. Once a week I bring her two magazines and today was such a day. While she studies her papers, I often work on the blog, or otherwise just chill out.

Today she decided to take it a step further and vocalize some of the things she was reading. First came the story about the dog that stole the owners dentures and buried them in the yard, 😳 and if this wasn’t funny enough, there was more. Next on the agenda was poor Prince Charles. I guess we all have our ticks how we like things and what we prefer, and at first she shared with me that Prince Charles travels with his own bed. We looked at each other and even sympathized with his decision. I’m sure you have been at a hotel, just missing the heck out of your pillow. What was the icing on the cake and what stole the show was her next comment. Can you believe that he has his shoe laces ironed each day? Apparently that was too much for Mom. Maybe it is half as funny reading it, and it was just one of those moments you had to been there. But it was the way she presented her amazement to me, by saying “Can you believe it…..” in disbelief, that had us both in stitches and laughing out loud in the end.


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 💙🦋
