Books and Flowers

poetry…I hope that I always have a space to grow flowers, herbs and plants. I pray that I always have books to read and learn from; simple pleasures that have always given me peace within. When I plant little seeds, I am learning about life…treasuring the earth’s bounty and gifts. If I am reading, I am learning something I did not know before. I have all that I need in the sweetness of flowers and in the power of books…

May I forever be open to learning and growing…

Reflecting…

Let us hold each other ever so closer because I guarantee, everyone could use a hug right about now…a sincere word, an “it’s gonna be okay” followed by something fun that wasn’t planned. Like, a day trip to the country or beach, a pan of fresh baked brownies, a song sung from the heart, a poem written just for them. I guarantee there’s someone out there hurting and alone, so let’s be there for each other without any expectations. Let’s get away from assuming someone is okay because we just saw their “status” and the pics they posted on Instagram.

We. All. Are. Going. Through. Something…let’s take the time to care…it will always matter.

 

 

Friends are the family we choose for ourselves…

 

I love my family, my blood family that is, but I would be lying if I said that I have always felt that they understood me and supported me. I have some soul connections in the form of friends that have listened to me tell them painful secrets that some of my own family does not know and vice versa. They say that our friends are the family that we choose for ourselves; how beautiful is that? I believe we have to create this kind of “spiritual” family, especially those of us who are in deep transition in our lives; transition to a new self, a new way of being.

Some of us are really going through it…smiling through pain that we may not have even shared with others. I recently watched a short clip of a video in which the narrator spoke of letting go of the “bullshit”. Letting go of people we know “good and well” don’t have our best intentions at heart. They went on to say it is time to connect with your real family; your soul family. Now, to that I could relate. By and by, more and more, people have been coming into my life for some divine ass missions; things I couldn’t see coming if I had a crystal ball the size of the Earth herself…when I really meditated on the synchronicity I have been experiencing, things began to make sense. I still often wonder what it all means and it is okay that I don’t know yet. Part of this life change that I am moving through is not having all the answers but still being at peace with the Creator’s ultimate purpose.

We can’t hold on to our old selves, and it is definitely not fair for our blood family to hold on to an old “us”. We sense the discomfort, the anxiety and the sadness because we hesitate to fully be ourselves…and that is where our soul family comes in. Chances are, they are going through the same vibes and need some sort of respite, a place where they can remove the mask and smile inside out, knowing that they are loved. I am at that place and I will never look back, except to celebrate how far I have come. It is not easy being at this crossroad but I have to choose my growth over pleasing others and appeasing others, even my family…it’s that damn important. Love will win though, it always does.

Suspended in serenity

I imagine the serenity of being in a place like this where it seems like time would be so still…I would feel the gentle breeze against my skin and sink in to the moment. I think you would enjoy it too, it would free us both up. No expectations, no empty declarations, only possibilities of what could be. One day we will come here and feel so full of life…we will empty our souls of all the things that had us struggling under the weight of the world. We will be renewed like an ocean pearl. Wait for it…it’s coming.
