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!!!

It amazing how we go through life…..some more lost the others. Its ok. There is a calm coming….you may find that you dont know where your going, or even where you’ll end up. In the end, know that every journey is worth taking and it is worth it in the end. The sky will clear and you will have calmed waters…your soul will find Peace and Balance. Every wave you have ever ridden and sickness you have fought will be worth it in the end. You will come out stronger and have survived that which you thought to be lost in the first place. You will have survived yourself!
