Another venture outside

I took another venture outside, into this crazy and strange world that is full of uncertainty and yet so beautiful and recovering from years of damages. A world that is quickly becoming our new reality, at least for now, without knowing for how long, without knowing what will change in the future, what will be permanent and most of all not knowing when “this”, our current now will be over with. I couldn’t help but notice the beauty of the sky and how clear the air was. I’ve seen it before and yet it catches me by surprise each time, as if seeing it for the first time. The sky was full of puffy clouds today and this picture is unedited. The day started with morning rain and it was wonderful to wake to the sound of it. We dried out later in the day with partly cloudy skies and it was my opportunity to catch a little vitamin D and some fresh air. Along the way I was greeted by two rabbits in different spots, bringing a message from the spirit world about my own creative phase.

Being a sucker for quotes, a new one found it’s way into my life today. Since I don’t believe in coincidences and rely on signs around me, I think this one fits this picture and our current times perfectly. Maybe it’s a message of hope, to stay the course, to do the best we can coping with what’s going on in the world. Maybe, just maybe I was meant to hear this today, and maybe you are meant to as well, so here it is.

“Serenity is not freedom from the storm ; but peace amid the storm.” 🙏🏼

~S A Jefferson – Wright


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. What a beautiful blue sky, Rhapsody.
    I do also enjoy the sky here, when there are no clouds. It can be really deep blue, which I didn’t see before the lock down of everything. It use to look light grey/blue.
    Beautiful quote.
    Much love to you ❤
