Writing is...

I was thinking deeply this week about what writing really entails. There truly is a risk in writing and sharing my most intimate thoughts with the world. There is a chance of rejection, there is a chance of misunderstanding, but what keeps me going is that chance of relating. I have experienced connecting with others through my words and it is a beautiful connection; it creates a bond between writer and reader. I don't group all of my readers in one category, some are curious, some have similar stories and want to share as well, in any instance, I treasure the connection. I thought of what books are to me and what I feel when I read a book and this is what I came up with.
"Books are endless thoughts, experiences, stories (fiction and non-fiction) and adventures spoken from the heart of whomever is writing."
Being a writer means exposing a little more about yourself each time you reveal your thoughts. It is a most humbling risk to take, but so worth it. Writing gives me the willpower to move through life more with fluidity; to take my experiences and share them; learn from them.

I have looked back on what I wrote and saw so much emotion coming out, but then I saw my spirit become lighter with every word written.

Answers in the Ethers

Synchronicity, coincidences, and karma are occurrences that sometime stop us in our day to day thinking to really ponder; what is the message being conveyed? In our lives, sometime we brush aside things that the Universe is trying to show us. It is wise to be still and take in to account what needs to be revealed to us. I most recently noticed a pattern of looking at the time when the numbers are all the same; 1:11, 2:22, first I didn't do much but smile to myself when it would happen but being that numbers have significance I started paying more attention to this new habit of mine. Given all of the most recent changes occurring in my life, it only makes sense that little messages are coming at me from all sources! I'm finding that taking time to just be still, quietly reflecting on what is happening in my life at the moment and pooling all of this information to form a conclusion helps. There could be answers to the very questions I have about something in these subtle yet, obvious little moments of synchronicity.

Free as a bird

I love myself enough to say goodbye to the madness, the sadness that has ruled my life long enough...You will notice some significant changes, in the way I speak, carry myself and most of all in the way I react. That one aspect will be my way of deflecting negative energy right back outward instead of harboring it within. I may have fallen a few times but I will always get back up and be my beautiful, intelligent and loving self. Nothing or no one will sway me.
