Created by Storms – Emotions

This picture was stolen from my dear friend Wendi, and today’s segment post brought this amazing person to mind. A beautiful soul, wife, and mother, I relate to her so often not only on a spiritual side and because she has the biggest heart you will ever find, but also because we share the struggle of fighting a chronic illness. This post is for you my dear friend, and everybody out there struggling with disease and pain. God knows you have experienced your storms in life, and dealt with a sea of emotions.

I don’t include myself here, although I belong, and I don’t come from my own pain levels and experiences, but those battling illnesses are some of the strongest people I have ever met. Their struggle is heartbreaking, yet inspiring, and it never seizes to amaze me what storms the human spirit can overcome when being strong is the only option that is left. Today’s segment deals with the emotions behind the storms, the battles that were required for you to be exactly who you are today.

Wendi is such a beautiful example of what it means to not give up, but rather to twist and bend throughout these storms. She is kind and she is a strong woman because she is not afraid of her emotions. Strong women/men are not afraid to show their vulnerable side to let everyone know that after all, they are human. No matter what life throws at them, they are strong enough to pick themselves up, work it out and move on.

Thank you Wendi for sharing your emotions on here, paying it forward for all of us to find inspiration and hope within your words. You have done such a beautiful job and I am humbled that our paths have crossed. 🙏🏼

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. The troopers in life, like those images of a little flower coming up from a crack in a slab of concrete. Forever being overheated, trodden on and just plain rejected for being out of sight, out of mind.
    And all the more beautiful simply because in reality, if we but look a little closer, we will see the love that it has taken to reach that loveliness BECAUSE of what has been endured.
    Take a bow little flowers, your beauty and loveliness precedes you 🌾 💐 🌷 🌹 🥀 🌺 🌸 🌼 🌻 🌈

  2. OH MY GOODNESS! I had no idea you were “talking” about me! This post brought tears flooding my eyes and overwhelmed my heart. I am sincerely humbled and at a complete loss of words. If I have done anything to help anyone, I am deeply happy! God bless you for your super duper kind words! 🙂 I am deeply thankful.
