Reflecting on another week

As another week is coming to an end and a new one is heading our way, I am reflecting on everything that has happened so far in 2020. It’s been quite some year, hasn’t it? Life seems to have changed overnight in such traumatic ways that just recently would have been hard to grasp and imagine. Earlier today I heard that this is the biggest mass awakening for humanity. No doubt, things are scary, how else would we learn and notice? But there is no denying and turning away from the good this has brought to our environment. I truly hope the ones in charge, the ones who can make a change are listening.

I’ve been out walking must every day, and I always try to see the world as if it was for the very first time. Gratefulness for yet another day, to have woken up, able to choose my attitude, and in search for what beauty I might find today, has become a priority to me. Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder and is so much more than just visual. Besides what you see, it can be a feeling, an act of kindness, gratitude, helpfulness, the act creation, a smile, and so much more. Today my inspiration was found in nature on my walk and the above picture.

How do you stay inspired?

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 had a parrot land around my home over the last week and I could hear it was a little distressed. I kept an eye out and finally yesterday it landed on my balcony and seemed to be calling me. I could see it was one of those nectar feeders so I very slowly went out with a bit of honey to see if it would respond. I got the shock of my life when it ran along the balcony to me and started to eat the honey before I had barely put it down, it was starving. It was then I realised it was obviously someones pet that had escaped in the storms and wet weather we just had and that some poor child or adult for that matter had lost something that was probably making their isolation a lot easier to handle and now had left them quite distressed.
    I have decided to ring the local radio station and see if this beautiful bird can be reunited with its owner.
    I think I have allowed the universe to give me a very lovely distraction at this time.

  2. I absolutely love this picture and your outlook on life, keeping the spirits up during these difficult times. 2020 has indeed been a year, hasn’t it? I’m glad to hear you are doing well. We try to get out for walks every day and see beauty in the little things like spring flowers and bird songs.

  3. wonderful nature shown in your photograph Rhapsody. I am so blessed to be living in the place I do, the Goddess shows me everyday how incredible OUR world is. Being out there listening, and providing habitat, is my joy to see how the wild life lives about my home and gardens. No matter what I am so very thankful to wake up each morning.
