The awakened woman/man

“Every day is the first day of the rest of your life.”

Have you heard this saying before? Indeed it is so and every day we awake, we are given an opportunity to write another page in a book of blanks. What will you end up writing today?

Personally I am building on all the lessons 2020 brought my way. I am using the awareness to connect deeper to what it is that fuels my soul. What is it that truly makes me happy and allows my heart to be at peace? What is needed, what is the next step in attaining that sought, blissful feeling.

It appears that more and more, during my pursuit, the old self is dying off. The cocoon is just about to burst open at times, while on other times patiently awaiting that perfect moment. There is a tiredness of the mediocre, a now or never attitude that fuels me. Still I remember how I got here, celebrating all the versions of myself I have lived through. These versions, old self’s weren’t all that bad either and I have no regrets. Each got me to this point in life, for she has been through hell and wears her battles in the scars not hidden but visible and in plain sight. She doesn’t have to be perfect anymore and a new warrior is standing on the edge of forever. A new dreamer is emerging until that cycle concludes and new growths is awaiting a courageous heart once more.

“As an awakened woman or man, your system becomes more sensitive and responsive to the interconnected web of nature. Everything from world events to a full moon can affect how you feel. The more conscious you are, the more aware you become of these influences.”

~Kimberly Jones.com

It is that sensitivity that is my guide that makes me feel alive and allows me to see the world anew through the eyes of wonder with every new day. No, it’s not always perfect. Sure the occasional hiccup will make itself known and there will be challenges and the unexpected. Life is hard but what’s important is how we process those feelings, that knowledge, and what we do with it.

Here is to all of us, in it together, writing happy moments and endings for ourselves on most days.

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 feel this and every word of yours speaks so very clearly to me. The sensitivity indeed is a treasure and a compass that guides our way of living fully alive and awake to the ripples and waves of life. There is peace in floating on the moment and living deeply in it, and gratitude for all those gone by.

  2. No regrets here either, in fact while all about me seemed to be going crazy in 2020, I had a clear perspective of inner calm…. Which was enhanced even more on the Solstice… When I took part in a mass meditation focusing on Uluru in Australia. I knew then we had completed the shift, the energies were in place.
    But we have to do the work ourselves.. And we will all get hicups, it means we still have something to learn and grow from.. We have never done learning or evolving..
    I am content… And happy to meet another fellow happy Dreamer who knows her heart..

    Love and Blessings your way 😀 Enjoy your week and weekend to come.. 🙏💚

    1. I hear you and relate to your words. I felt the same and as crazy as things got, there was an inner peace, a knowing that the universe would have my back and that everything be ok.
      What an amazing experience it must have been to participate in a mass meditation during Uluru.
      Have a great rest of the week my dear friend. I feel I have found a soul connection in you, a feeling that is instant and speaks so true. Thank you kindly. It means the world. 🙏🏼💙
