Sometimes in life things do not go my way.
I have often tried to force situations. Pray for situations. Lie to make a situation go the way I wanted it to.
Finally I’m at a place in my life where my ability to go with the flow has brought me through some tuff times. It has opened my eyes to different points of view. It has been a pain in my rear end but it has also been a gift from above.
I’m grateful that by allowing myself the room to breakdown my barriers and climb over my on doubts. I have been able to see the world in a with a renewed state of mind.
I’m more flexible with life. I’m more open to the beauty around me and I have become incredibly thankful for this gift. I probably wouldn’t have tried a lot of the things that I’ve tried. I would have closed myself off to the world and climbed into a mindless consciousness.
I can handle myself better now. I owe a lot of that to my ability to flow. To move freely,to move forward. To bounce back from fear and mistakes. To enjoy the highs and the lows. I’m still figuring out life. As I do I feel blessed and less stressed. There were days were I spent time just speaking negative thoughts to myself. Days where I couldn’t see myself being anything to anyone. Let alone a blogger to an online community.
I didn’t know I had a voice. I didn’t know that I would matter to anyone else. I’m thankful for the opportunity, the path and the peace of mind. I’m grateful for all of you. For your comments ,for the likes and for just allowing me to have a voice on this earth.
Day 13 of grateful January and the question is: What abilities are you grateful for? I’m grateful for the ability to change, to grow and to be my most authentic self reflection.

In the stillness of night. I awaken the soul within me. I let the sounds of water and waves soothe my thoughts and my emotions. I embrace the things that I cannot change.
Subconsciously I wish for a life a little different from now. But earnestly I’m hoping that realness prevails.
Things aren’t always what they seem, yet I go with the current anyway. I can’t change anyone other than myself so, I’m changing.
Life will send me anything that I believe in. Thank goodness I still believe in love.
Today is one day before the end of this year. Just like any other day it’s meant to be cherished.
It’s the weekend y’all! Enjoy it . Live it . Love it. The day is yours do with it as you please. Hopefully you choose to do good with it.

On a mental vacation.
From this day forward I promise to dedicate my time to myself. Enjoying the gift of waking up. In the best state of mind that I can for the moment.
I’ve been told that a job ain’t nothing but work. So I installed it into my brain. That work is the job. But magically appearing out of nowhere came a new mindset.
Whatever I want to happen will most certainly happen. I can’t run from it. Now ….The Who, what, when, where, and how. Well that’s up to my universe to decide.
I hope serendipity is real.
Happy that hope is still in my vocabulary. Sometimes I get mad at words and kick them out my mental Rolodex. Real talk. I do that with everything. Kick stuff, people, decisions right out my mental Rolodex.
Maybe not the best way to handle situations but it is this way today.
Listening to desperado by Rhiannan. Reminds me of the feeling I get when I am so hungry for a particular someone,something, or sometime.
Hate it when I have to let go. Resume in a spot that I didn’t want to be in.
Mental vacation. Life is my map to places unknown. It’s been an exciting ride so far. Hopefully it continues to be as beautiful.

Thank you universal energy that picks and pulls people from all over. The folks who drop me kind words and intelligence.
I’m amazed by the quick exchanges that are continuously filling my soul with the food of knowledge.
It’s strange how strangers share light conversations and the benefits of that impacts my day to day life.
An introvert with extrovert survival skills. If there’s something I’m confused about I’m willing to ask for the information. And sometimes it’s good to allow myself to be a good steward to others. By listening as they explain their life situations. I get to learn so much from the people I meet in passing.
I realize that if I put more power into loving the small things. The big things seem a lot easier to reach.
Learning acceptance 🌻
