The Choice was mine to make

The choice is always ours and this time I really stayed true to myself. The path’s past has been anything but easy, and I have yet to find out where the road is taking me, but I’m going for it. I won’t lie and there have been times I said “enough already, I need a break”, but I also have to let you know that it is truly a “no pain, no gain” kind of game. The most meaningful times have been those of adversity, when the most valuable lessons are learned. I don’t have any hard feelings for the past, it made me who I am today and I turned out ok.

I am excited for what lies ahead, about the things I know, and the mysteries, the unknown that is yet weaving it’s way into my journey. I am embracing that the magic lies in the things we don’t always know, and I am learning a few new principles along the way. One of them is not to worry and to believe that the universe has a plan. Kind of scary, right, surrendering all control and going with the flow. You be amazed how liberating and freeing it can be. Luckily I can explore such options, and I’m grateful that I can dream big, that I can pursue the possibilities that I breathe already. That I am able to chase what I am passionate about, and dare to be uniquely me. The choice was mine to make and it didn’t come free or without a fight. It was hard and challenging, cruel and trying, lonely, painful and beautiful at the same time, but it was worth it, and in the end I’ll do it all over again. The trick is to see the lessons and have a willingness to grow as a person. With those weapons by your side, bitterness and defeat will never have a chance, but the chances are great that you will grow into exactly the person you already respect in your mind. You may even be proud of your “Now” without focusing about how great life will be, when….It already is, learn to count your blessings…the choice is yours.

A poem by Michelle Schaper that resonated with me. This one is for all of you searching. May it encourage your choice and may you find the strengths in your heart to fight your battles. Remember, you are beautiful and if I can do it, you certainly can do it. Dig deep and find the courage to answer your call. Remember you are loved.

I just wanted life to give me love and I was prepared to wait, but I had to learn to fight through life to get to love, so fighting became my fate.

I fought for what I believe in, and battled with my own mind. Destiny has made a warrior out of me and many more my kind.

So now that I’ve learned to fall in love with life, I rarely go to war, but I often visit graveyards in my heart of all the girls I’ve been before.

The only way

The only way you will ever awaken is through silence, not through analyzation of facts.

Not by sorting out good and bad, but through simple silence, letting go.

Letting go of all thoughts, all the hurts, all the dogmas and concepts.

Letting go of these things daily….

~Robert Adams

HOPE…Hang on pain ends

I want to write a few lines about hope today, and share a new perspective with you. Somehow I feel called to it, and perhaps these words will find meaning for you.

I’m ok in my corner of the world, but ever so often I feel like I’m picking up additional struggles. Perhaps it is when I take a rest from my own challenges and troubles, that I, the empath can sense the vibrations of those around me, YOU, even more so.

Whether you need a little inspiration or not, I’d love to share a quote that resonated with me recently. You know that I’m a sucker for quotes as they always pack Wisdom, especially when the right one miraculously crosses your path, at seemingly the perfect time.

HOPE….we all need it, right? What would we be without it. Today I am going to share a different interpretation about hope, but before I do so, I need to mention the light at the end of the tunnel. We heard that one too before right? What does it mean, that things get brighter, that we escape the darkness, and all our troubles disappear! Both hope and the light at the end of the tunnel are often associated with hardship.

The quote I am about to share encompasses both, hope and the light at the end of the tunnel.

Hope…Hang on pain ends

“The light at the end of the tunnel is your life; it’s the tunnel that’s temporary.”

~Michael Josephson

This really made think, and reminisce about that so much in life is temporary. Good and bad experiences, as well as pain and joy. So hold on to the memories that make your heart beat faster, and let them carry you through the tunnel of darkness. For it too, shall be temporary.

Blessings, xoxo ♥️

Talking to the clouds again

“You must not blame me if I do talk to the clouds.”

~Henry David Thoreau

The clouds looked beautiful yesterday and my love for “Puffy’s” remains. I was with Mom as I took this picture. It didn’t take but a minute as I felt myself drifting, dreaming of past times visiting the Vortex, lying on my back on nothing but my hiking towel, while starring into the sky, talking to the clouds. Watching their ever-changing shapes glide across the horizon, taking on new silhouette’s in the changing atmosphere. Flexible they stretched across the horizon, little shapeshifters, adapting to whatever came their way. Gaining in size or getting smaller, or breaking off into individual Puffy’s all together. Have you ever dreamed with and talked to the clouds? Here is your reminder if you have and your dare to get out there if you haven’t. Give yourself the gift of 30 minutes to an hour and let the stress melt away. Tell it to the clouds, they are sure to keep your dreams floating.
