Good Karma – Note to self

In these questionable times our self dialogue may have become a little louder. Maybe we talk more to ourselves more often, wondering what will be next, or maybe we have been forced to slow down just enough that it is now we finally hear ourselves for the first time. That in itself brings something beautiful and it’s something we should do anyways. Each one of us carries a wisdom within, a soul that already knows what to do and what comes next. The question is “Are we listening?”

In this note to self I dare you to go deeper. To take a moment, and revisit an old question I’m sure has been on your mind a time or two. Whether it has been now or in the past, this is a perfect time to feed and nurture the positive within. To remember your Super-Powers and to start each day building on that foundation of love and light. To remember that we all play a part and each and every one of us is important, contributing to our world and how we see the things around us.

“What is my purpose in life?” We all have wondered, haven’t we? Constantly trying to figure it out, especially when times are tough.

What if I told you that you fulfilled it when you took an extra hour to talk to that kid about his life. When you smiled at someone and made their day with a random act of kindness. And what about giving someone the precious gift of your time, of making them a priority? To listen to their concerns and lending a shoulder to lean on.

What about the time you paid for a young couple in that restaurant? When you have a homeless soul some spare change for a meal, or saved that dog that got stranded and ended up in the middle of traffic? What about holding the door open for someone, helping an elderly person carry a heavy bag? What about the time you cared for your parent when they could no longer tie their own shoes.

You see the problem is that we often equate our purpose with goal based achievements. With monetary and material rewards. The more we have of that material bliss, the better off we must be, right? Wrong. Have you ever known of somebody that seemingly had it all, the riches and toys that money can buy, but was lonely and empty on the inside? It’s because the universe is not interested in your achievements….it’s interested in your heart. When you choose to act out of kindness, compassion and love, you are already aligned with your true purpose. How you feel in the inside will change and you will no longer chase wrong and empty ideals that leave you feeling lost and empty on the inside. You have already arrived and there is no need to look any further!

Now go and ponder this for a moment. Make a list and write down such examples from your own storybook and how they relate to your own life. Post it somewhere visible, somewhere you see it each morning. You might even leave extra room to add to 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 💙🦋
