Journey into self love

It takes a very strong individual to sit with themselves, calm their storms, and heal all of their issues without trying to bring someone else into that chaos. Your journey into self love is just that….and you are doing it.


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. Well said dear lady, and that is its magic. To go to that place there is only room for one, only when we have the courage to take that first step within will we appreciate just what it is we have done. To face something where there is no guide rope, directions or help, and have faith in who we are. Even though we are scared, in so much emotional pain and exhausted from our journey, its realisation will give us great understanding, an acceptance like never before, and that love we have always searched for…ours ❤️
    Big hugs Rhapsody, may that love set you free ❤️

  2. Yes, this! Growth is painful and it would be so easy to cast our burdens on others and beg all who can hear to take over and fix our broken wings. The journey is ours, and some things we need to learn in our own time in our own way. These challenges encourage us to connect with spirit and face our demons, and in that resolve we meet self. When we discover that we only desire to spread love, and not create turmoil, we open to doors to unconditional love for self and for others. ❤

    1. Awe you are most welcome and thank you. This journey is individual to each and every one of us. Some prefer to slumber and don’t want to be disturbed, while other experience an awakening. Spiritual growth sounds so beautiful, but is always messy. It is pain that cracks us open and allows us to learn the lessons of life. Without it we would never realize any of this.
      Sending blessings your way for your journey. Hugs
