That Place In the ROCK

To overcome someone’s abuse of you means that after a time, perhaps several life times even; when you look back on that pain filled stage of your life, it’s hard to believe that it happened to you at all.

You begin to in bewilderment, ask yourself , did I really live that hell? Was I really treated so low by those I came to love and trust ?

The disbelief in your soul comes from knowing for yourself that you didn’t deserve any of that.

For some reason, by some higher design, you chose since before time, to go through that calvary. You became that rock that they could beat a place for themselves in.

She broke his heart and with its ink, tattooed it on her arm , proudly displaying it as an ornate masterpiece.

What ink colors your heart ?

Black: your soul mourns deeply

Blue: you’re a tranquil soul

Yellow: your heart’s full of light

Red is a passionate heart

Green is for the philanthropic

Purple ink in your heart shows you’ve been brave far too long and you deserve a Medal of Honor for your loving service

Orange ink is for the happy-go-lucky souls who coast through life

So what color does your heart bleed?

2018: SAVOR the Moment

Happy 2018!!

Thank you to all my faithful readers who still follow this blog 🙂

What a roller coaster of a year 2017 was. I’m looking forward to things slowing down a bit so that I can savor the moment!

I’m also studying a lot and my writing is on an upward growth curve. I’m back so don’t think that I’ve abandoned this blog that I started back in the summer of 2011. My oh my, how time flies when we’re having fun!

Small Beginnings

Don’t despise small beginnings. Just start with what you have. Time, faith and perseverance will take care of the rest.

We all began as a tiny cell inside our mother. Daily we grew because we trusted in time, faith and perseverance to usher us into life outside our mother’s body .

No matter where life has taken you; whether you crashed and burned once or numerous times; know that you’ll always get another chance to start anew.

Let’s not ever forget or despise all of our small beginnings… trust in small to birth the giant in you!

This is a call out to all creative souls:

“They need us now, more than at any other time in history , to create our works; to help creation make sense where there is nothing but chaos.”

Sing it

Dance it

Invent it

Design it

Write it

Paint it

Dream it up

Express it

But whatever you do…

Do your part 

A new era demands a new expression …
