When I was about 14 years old I went to Kansas City to stay with my great grandmother. I wasn’t being safe with my life and needed to be removed from my friends at the time. I was evolving myself in activities that were dangerous to myself and others. I needed a change of environment.
My parents sent me there to keep me out of trouble for the summer. I spent those months trying to figure out things about myself. During my time there I visited my grandfather and my great aunt Zista. I remember being afraid of that big ol worn down house. The creeks and the sounds from the old wood. I jumped in her bed for safe keeping. I knew if I stayed in her room just long enough for the sun to come up that I would be alright to sleep. I needed the sunlight to shine through and show me the things the darkness couldn’t show me.
That’s the beauty of the light.
Nature’s natural light showed all the things that regular light couldn’t. Once the sun came up I could see everything that was once hidden by shadows. Hidden by darkness.
Today I woke up with some tummy issues and with some soul issues. I let myself be guided through some yoga postures and then I let my thoughts be guided through some healing.
The beauty of memories are that they can be seen from different angles. The beauty of life is that out of the darkness comes light.
What memories are you grateful for? I’m grateful for them all, but definitely this one in particular.

2 something in the am and meditative heart music humming in my ears.
I am calm.
In a chaotic world where mood swings and bullsh*t corner the market I continuously have to find my zen.
I’m not sure where I belong I just know that I’m focused on forward movement. Slow. Steady. Movement. Not too much not too little, just enough to put my mind at ease to deal with anything other than my inner peace.
I value my peace for than anything in this life.
I’m thankful for another day. I’m thankful for the people close to me. I’m grateful for the grace and mercy that I receive from above.
Blue also known as Azul is the color of my dominant chakra. Creativity is my gratitude color. I’ve always been in love with the color blue. For me it symbolizes triumph. It symbolizes my mood when I’m down. It even symbolizes the way I express my thoughts. Blue is beautiful. The color of clear water in the mist of a wave. The color of morning dew in a glistening haze. The color of hope for things unforeseen.
I return to gratitude everyday. No matter what mess or annoyance has happened in the past tense. I purposely focus my intentions on gratitude for the things that bring me out of a negative headspace.
If all I can do in this life is express how small I am and how incredibly big this universe and celestial divine energy is then here I am screaming out from inside my soul. I am nothing but a source of gratitude. A sign pointing upward. A roadmap away from confusion and into a space of silence.
Today I am grateful for this life and my favorite color….blue.

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.

Ssssh. Hear that?
Probably because you have no idea what I’m asking you. If you don’t know what you’re listening for can you hear it? Not in conventional terms.
That’s when you have to get a little creative. Expand your mind from the knowledge that you’ve currently attained and look for more. May I say even that you need to look outside of yourself and reach for a consciousness other than anything you’ve ever encountered.
The perception of a perception. Let that linger. A door to a mindset that has not been opened yet.
If I have only been to one place my whole life how can I make assumptions about the world in its entirety?
If I only have knowledge about my current lifetime how can I make choices for the future. Past Present Future. What is beyond those. Something infinite.
What is beyond selfish thoughts that steam from the only knowledge one has. The need to look beyond what you were taught is important. More important than just assuming. Or judging for that matter.
I need more.
I want more than that for myself and others.
The ancient mindset isn’t exceptable anymore. Enough of the question about why someone else won’t do what you do. Enough of the push and the pull between fear and freedom.
Go beyond what is asked for. Go beyond what is taught and meet every mindset with something new. Love.
What I’m saying is I understand that the world doesn’t know real love. So it’s hard to tell people to do what they really don’t understand. So let me say this. If what you’re doing leaves someone’s heart broken you did it wrong. If what you’re doing leaves others in need you did it wrong.
It’s okay to get it wrong as long as the drive to continue to thrive for better is in place. The human race wasn’t built in one day. So let’s be creative when branching out to each other. Let’s get creative about spreading positivity and kindness. Let’s grow in the knowledge to speak life into each other’s minds and hearts.
We got this universe! I’m starting with this post but I’m open to expanding beyond because my belief that the world and I can be better is bigger than my thoughts. It should be Christmas all year not just in December.

Tell the truth. To yourself.
This life is nothingness at it’s greatest form.
The birth of imagination. Dreams, words,works of art, intelligence. From the B.C’s thru the A.D’s to currently from marks put on slabs to scrolls of unknown authors. All means nothing. Are worth nothing. Yet we put a price on everything.
Friendships. Kindness. Help. The need to do to receive. Fraudulent. All these things are free. They require nothing. Emotions =free. Feelings=free. If you truly have them then they’re given freely✨
To heal oneself is the enlightment. To make peace with the past become more present. Tada! You now hold the key to your future. What are you going to do with it?
I choose to write with mine. I choose to help with mine. I choose to be kind with mine. I choose to love with mine. It’s the picture that you paint for your soul that will become the lifestyle that you end up living.
Choose wisely it will only cost you the rest of your life.
I’m now on Wattpad stop by and spread me a little love ❤️

Morning has come and I’m rested and well adjusted to the energy that is this here earth.
Apple in hand and a harmonic tune in my heart I ask for instructions on matters close to me.
Knowing that I don’t always have the answers inside of me I wait. For the natural shift of nature to do it’s bidding in it’s own time.
Today I plan to allow peaceful thoughts and feelings to fill up any empty space outside of my life. To strive for serenity when anything seems off and calm when my outer shell becomes rattled.
I’m sending as well as receiving positive flow.
Gratitude for this day. Gratitude for this way of life. Gratitude for the blessings that cover me daily.
Happy Thursday y’all ❄️
Namaste from Nebraska

Day has turned into night and Wednesday is about to be a wrap.
Spent the day putting together my latest book. A small novella based on a fictional story that I started from right here on this blog. Some good old fashioned fiction with a twist of mystery.
I told myself I’d have one done by December and by George I mean what I say. Being an indie author has a special place in my heart. I do it for me and that’s enough. My stories all have a piece of my soul my written babies.
After a long day of writing and editing I needed a nice way to unwind. Yoga is my go to form of stress relief. I’m super thankful that my totally awesome sister got me a new yoga mat from BalanceFrom Goyoga through Amazon. She picked out a grey mat with lots of comfort when I do floor stretches. Which is very important when I’m bending and kneeling this way and that way.
Yoga is a great way to start easing the stresses in your life. It brings together mind, body and soul through breathing and allowing the movements free you.
Feeling refreshed and offically sleepy I’m ready to eat some dinner and hit the cloud of dreams awaiting me.
Have a good evening and peaceful slumber everyone.💋
