.sometimes

Standard


sometimes we wonder
sometimes we wander
sometimes we stay in one place
often times we worry
often times we scurry
through the days in our current time and space

our hearts do the feeling
our minds do the thinking
our souls doing all and everything in-between
but, who do we follow?
who do we need?
what will we do to succeed?

why do we falter?
why do we second guess?
everything our heart feels…
and the thoughts our mind possess?

what is it that scares us?
what is it that holds us back?
what is it that chokes us so calmly and slow
that we can’t seem to stay on track?

we are like the lone rider
on a trail of our own
no support group to rally
even in our own home

but knowing we don’t need them;
the ones who claim to be but aren’t…
is our key to ultimate growth

fake smiles and fake clapping
they peer over your shoulder
pretending they care
when truly, your suffering is what they thrive on

open all the windows and the let the smoke cascade out
the battle you fight is more than internal
it’s all them without a doubt
be bigger in mind, in spirit and in hope
you have to look beyond
the picture that their words spoke

you are only who you are
not what they make you think
you are only who YOU are
not the Kool aide they made you drink

open your eyes and look closer
they have come between you and your ambition
you are their poster girl with no poster
you are all that they want to be

.a new year

Standard

As we welcome the new year we all have the desire to set new goals, new starts, and new beginnings… Some of us take the time to reflect on the last year and measure our success compared to the goals we set at this very time one year ago.

I love goals… I love short term goals that build to long term goals and I love achieving them more than anything else. I also hate disappointment, and I get frustrated when I can’t achieve a simple goal that I set in motion for myself. So, as it is with most things in life, it’s a love/hate relationship.

I have materialist goals, career goals, educational goals, relationship goals, but most importantly I have these goals that support emotional and spiritual growth. These goals, to me, are the  most important. I set the standard high for myself mostly because I have been witness to the power of intention and faith. I have been blessed with certain souls that have come into my life at just the right times and that have shared their knowledge and personal experiences with me. One in particular that has been my spiritual muse and counselor.

Even if I haven’t met all the resolutions I wanted to meet this past year, I can confidently say that I am proud of who I have become and what I have evolved into. I’ve experienced a lot of ‘firsts’ and ‘lasts’ and I am grateful for each one. I have met and welcomed new people into my life and I have released certain people from the world I call my own, and I am blessed to have experienced all of it.

The point to this blog is to push you and myself, alike, to be the best persons that we can be. To strive for more on a continuous basis but also to be grateful of every moment and experience that comes your way.  To leave a lasting impression on this world and to make our journey here one that is beautiful and filled with love, inspiration, light and power.

Take a few moments and reflect on who have become in the recent years, realize that everything you want in and out of life is within your grasp. Take a leap of faith, swallow your fear of failure, trust your instincts, and jump! Spread your wings and fly!

Be strong and prosper on!
