Your best life

Wishing all my WordPress family a happy holiday season and a wonderful new year. Each one of you matters so much to me and I am so grateful that our paths have crossed. Thank you for your continued support and for the friendships you allowed me to build.As the year comes to an end I reflect back on all that has happened in 2019. I remember saying that 2019 was going to be a year of preparation, paving the road for 2020. How true that gut feeling would become throughout the year. Did any of it came as a surprise or did I truly know? Much has happened this year, slowly preparing me for a life that is meant to be destined. Fears were realized, loss tore my heart apart only to form a new and stronger one. Scary change had to happen in order to make room for the new. Otherwise everything would always stay the same, unchanged, with dreams never realized. A dream remaining unattainable. But if you can see through the pain and all the things that happen in your year, perhaps you can also find a little magic and see your progress towards your dreams. Whether it’s to become the person you always wanted to be or something else. I believe that dreams have many faces and soon you will be given a new book with 365 blank pages to write a story you are proud of. A story that feeds your soul purpose. A story that is up to you. Will it be easier….perhaps not, but you are armed with tools and new traits gathered this year, tools you never had before. I believe many of us will rise from the ashes, living our best life in 2020. Here is to rolling with the punches, to dancing in the rain, and to doing our best, living our best life. ❤️

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 💙🦋
