Allow things to pass

This little beauty landed on my finger yesterday 🦋 and sat with me for awhile. It was a peaceful moment, a moment to be one with Mother Nature and all it’s creatures big and small. It was a moment to be still, to forget the troubles of oneself and the world for a little while.

A quote resurfaced and made me smile. Have you ever noticed that sometimes the things crossing your path, are the things you need to hear or see to stay the course, to keep inspired and motivated, to let you know you are doing the right thing? Maybe you need a little cheering on, a little push to help you over the unknown and the uncertain, strange, new territory. Maybe it’s just a moment for you to pause, ponder and take inventory of where you stand.

It’s what I have learned over the years, ever since I slowed down long enough to witness and become aware of such signs. And I have never looked back since. It goes back to saying that nothing is coincidence and that there is a reason for everything. No ordinary moments….

If you find yourself inspired enough wanting to give this a try, you should know that it starts with awareness and an open mind. How do you do that? It starts with giving yourself an amazing gift, the gift of time, for however long you can. To either use those moments for consciousness, to observe and just quieting the noise within. Breathe deeply, close your eyes, take a bubble bath, find a place where you are not interrupted. Yes, these moments when signs come your way happen all through the day and can’t be tied to a time schedule, but it’s a good start to practice your inner peace.

It has nothing to do with control, and these moments need to find you naturally. They can’t be forced, but the key is to recognize them when you are blessed with a message from the universe. Yesterday I wrote about the two W’s and this I believe goes hand in hand with it. So without further ado, here is the quote.

“You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you. True power is sitting back and observing everything with logic. True power is restraint. If words control you that means everyone else can control you. Breathe and allow things to pass.

And today I, myself as well need to remember this more than ever. To remember that I have all the tools already within me, and that it is a matter of applying them when there is a need. Don’t let these signs pass you by.

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 💙🦋
