Reflections arent always what you see…..sometimes, when your looking you see what you ONLY choose to see. Everything has a form of beauty in it…..look past outward appearances, and find what draws you in. You may be surprised at what you find.
Jewels on a necklace
cut differently, you and I
all attached one way or another on a strand,
in life just touching one another briefly,
as we stroll through our lives journeys individually.
Thought for the day…….
Where does brilliance come from?
The body, or mind?
Heart or soul?
In which direction does it flow?
Lastly, just how bright do you shine to others?
It has been some months now that I have unplugged, and for good reason. It has been a bumpy ride, and I have found myself doing more soul searching. These last few months have left me in more emotional anguish, jobless, and in pain then I care to share. However, it has taught me one thing, that being that we are ALL invaluable. Some of us have never tasted the feelings of self worthlessness, some have. In any case, I have to say that no matter who you are, what background you came from, there IS purpose. What that purpose is, Im not entirely sure. Thats what your own journey decides in life. That will be another day. To be honest, I wasnt sure just how many people I have touched, and often wondered, should I stop blogging or sharing all together?? With that said, I will continue to share my thoughts on life, abuse, and emotional baggage as I have done in the past. I will also gladly continue posting my pictures everytime I blog just to keep you all in high spirits. If you choose not to read my posts Im ok with that…..however, you may find yourself one day thinking back on something that I’ve shared that may have touched you in one way or another…..at least, thats what Im aiming for! Im not looking to become famous, or rich….just to be honest, and share in life journeys what may help someone, somewhere along the line in how to be more loving, positive, and cope more productively instead of just being numb and self destructing or simply on auto pilot going through life feeling no purpose. Im here, always have been…your not alone…never will be. You are loved….and you will always have a friend in me.
I wish for you during this time of seasonal change, the harvesting of a new spirit. Inner sanctum and peace, a place in your soul that you may tap into to get comfortable within your skin, and reclaim you and your life. Health and prosperity, love, and a kindred heart. Live life everyday with no regrets and love entirely, never give up, and dont hold back. Explore your mind, spirit, and soul with all you have….learn to put yourself first.
Until next blogcast…..Be well my lovelies….be well!
The Tulips dance in the morning light
after they have slumbered all through the night
to help put to rest those winter blues
and bring happy thoughts for me and you
Embracing their short spectacular life
living for just one thing
to bring forth, a Wondrous Spring!!!

Are you a tulip blowing in the wind?
Standing tall beside your friends.
Supporting others as they grow,
often times thinking they have no place to go.
Close together, roots planted deep,
sleeping side by side under the stars, counting sheep.
Telling tails underneath the moonlight,
singing songs of friendships delight.
Sharing in life and all its colors together they often say,
“birds of a feather”……
For in this garden of life I’ll be –
next to my tulips friends and me,
growing until there’s life no more,
hoping at another chance next Spring,
to dance another dance and sing………
My Tulip Friends & Me!!!

No one can hear you scream
high up on a mountain top
Left alone for the wind to swiftly
carry your worries and thoughts off
It takes your breathe away with
the sounds of birds and the breeze
blowing freely swaying through the trees
The sun kissing your skin
melting into it as it comes so alive with warmth
giving generosity and showering me with its natural powers and charm
Staring straight into the heart and soul
of its timeless beauty
and surrounded by its drawing forces through my minds eye
It sweeps me away, cleansing my inner fears taking with it my inhibitions
making me feel things I have buried so deep
I become enveloped, entranced by its wondrous nature
grounded by its strength
All time is forgotten and lost becoming non- existent
I become one and am reminded just how
peaceful and splendid life can be
for up on a mountain top……
Nobody can hear or see me!

Have you ever stopped to take in your surroundings? I mean REALLY take them in? Listen to the birds out today…..they are bustling about ….. congregating on feeders and chirping away. Arent they so lovely? I rather enjoy taking some quiet time and bird watching. This little guy is a Chickadee…..him and his friends like to visit often and make a nest always nearby. We feed the birds so its nice to listen to them and their songs. Just take a moment….thats all it takes, to take in those special moments that so many take for granted!
Learn to take time for the little things….enjoy them….sit and let the experience meld in your mind….grip tightly to your surroundings and how you are feeling at that time. Learn that its ok to feel good and do something nice for yourself…never ever feel guilty…you deserve to enjoy life and its wonders just like any other person out there!!!
