People watching

At the movie theater, trying to see a movie a few weeks ago, but “people watching” has it’s perks. Anybody else who likes to do this?


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. I ‘energy’ watch (well, feel their energy anyway), it is amazing just how many different energies there is. And by that I mean how much people have ‘opened’ their hearts from their journey.
    One lady I felt on the other side of a house. She was that strong that I could feel her as she walked down the side of the house to the rear of the building and I was that amazed I rushed out the back to see who it was, I had never felt anything like it (back then). It was a very young girl about 18…I was absolutely stunned, I was expecting an angel or the 2nd coming of Jesus it was that strong. But a girl, and I mean that nicely, she hadn’t had a chance to ‘open’, she just ‘was’.
    Over the years I have bumped into her and it has mellowed (the world will do that), but there’s still and angel inside 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋 🦘 🐬 🐳 🌺 🌹 🌈

    1. Wow that is an amazing story and I too have picked up on energy and vibes before. Its our intuition, our gut feeling but your words inspire me to give it a new try. To see beyond the mask and to watch the energy that is often hidden behind those very masks people wear. Thank you for sharing this. 🙏🏼🦋

      1. Yes, that intuition is a gift indeed. You’ll have your gifts Rhapsody and spirit will make them known to you. You may end up singing and bringing heartfelt tears and healing to all that hear. Or even an open heart to just be you, but allow many to see what they can become 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽
