I am grateful for what I have and what I’ve learned. Most days I’m happy now. Lately, I’ve been letting Nature take its course. I cannot and should not force anyone to stay in my life. I also should not fear losing anyone, especially if I’m gaining pieces of myself in return. This puzzle of mine, I put together with intense focus. Recently, I’ve noticed that a few people in my life will be exiting at this stage. It is a sacrifice I thought long and hard over. I am prepared and ready to make it.
I am at a place of peace and passion. I know that I have options. I do not have to follow anyone. I don’t need to bend to another person’s will. I have choices.
YOU HAVE CHOICES
Anyone out there who feels as though they’re going through the motions, or maybe you feel that you are always doing what you are told and it depresses you, I want to help you to remove that conditioning. Lift your veil. You are enough. Maybe you’re in a dead end relationship or a dead end job. I’ve been through both countless of times. Maybe you feel controlled and enslaved by religion, maybe you’re looking to join a religion. Either way you have choices. There are options. Sit and think deeply. Write, make several plans to find a way out. But the first step is KNOWING that you can get out. Experience, experiment, and explore. That’s a motto I created for myself to remind myself of life’s capabilities and how I should approach it. And I’m sharing it with you. I love you 🌏🌍🌎.
You know, to spill our guts. Lately, I’ve been feeling the need to talk. Let me tell you all of a very recent night by the river in the south with a lemon martini.
FYI: I’m open to responses. I’d like a conversation to grow at some point.
Do you ever stop midway while doing something and have a moment of epiphany? This is what happened the night at the Mississippi River. There I sat with my sister and her friend. Discussing taboo subjects. And it occurred to me how many people have exit from my life.
I’m not offended. I was, however, worried. Will I be left with no one to talk to? I’m on this journey learning how to connect with people. That’s one of the reasons I’m here typing to everyone who reads this. Ok, so I’ve found myself and I’m coming into my own. My question is: Is this normal?
Isn’t this dark forest beautiful? A place of peace and power. A place of hard truths and hidden lessons. Training. Blessings. There is love here. I feel strength here. My feet are planted as roots into Mother Earth and I thank You. Inspired, motivated, and blessed.
Why did I turn down this street? Cobble stone pavement feeling like the cold ending that I’ll meet Something similar to fire grasp around me Could’ve been pulled by the fire laying inside me I chose heartbreak Heartbreak didn’t choose me Now that the wind blows through my hair I can see I taste the spice in the leaves Not sure what to look for So I’m not sure of what I see
Left begging my heart, don’t want to be strange fruit growing on a tree
What can I expect
Not one soul would pluck me And this grasp It refuse to subside Not that I want it to I find its essence I cry Now tell me why Why didn’t I see? This street I turned on Right before me I chose heartbreak Heartbreak didn’t choose me Goddess knows where this midnight will take me Just too plain to see Like cinnamon in blood Oh the incense I breathe May this road be more than it look And I accept this Might as well… My beat it took
If all else falls my authentic spirit was received
When I die if there is one thing that I could say: It’s an honor to intertwine One I’ll never forget What a beautiful spirit A spirit I wish would speak I chose heartbreak I swear heartbreak didn’t choose me
