Hey, sweet soul? Logic and reason doesn’t solve everything. We like to think it does— that we control all the plans and the details. The outcomes and the circumstances. And that’s why you’re sitting there trying to work it all out. Trying to figure out how you got here and where you’re going next. Putting the past into buckets— things you should have done. And shouldn’t have. Things you wish you could have done differently. Things you should have said. Not said. Experiences you wish you’d enjoyed more. Chances you wish you’d taken— risks you wish you hadn’t. But that doesn’t really work well, sweet soul. Because no matter how you group and reorder chapters, they are already written. And you cant go back and rewrite a story that’s in the process of being told. But you can write the next chapters however you wish, now can’t you? And the truth is— eventually, we grow wise to the way the universe works. It’s simple really— but it takes us a long time to understand. We are in control of sails. Not winds. So sometimes you have to trust that your heart will lead you where your eyes cannot. That’s called faith, sweet soul. Faith. ♥ // October 2017 Theme: I must be mine.

I’ve been young and stupid
Now I’m older and wiser
Been knocked out, got up with my gloves on
I’m a fighter
And no one is gonna keep me down
They can try to take my smile and turn it in to a frown
But I pray
I pray for the day
That I don’t have to deal with adversity
And just embrace our diversity
Not worry about injustice
Unless I’m playing the video game
Pray for all of us to stop evil and disdain
*Cie yang udah lama nungguin serial #Selasayang#priaberkacamata : enaknya manggil apa nih? aku kamu? saya anda? Lo gue? Atau gimana?
Orang lain : bro sis
Seluruh ruangan tertawa. Lalu hening.
Priaberkacamata bertanya lagi mau panggilan seperti apa biar kelihatan akrab satu dan lain.
He : gimana? gue nggak ngerti panggilan buat kalian?
Me : SAYANG! .
Ruangan yang tadinya hening tambah hening dan tatapan mereka pindah ke seorang #gadisAnggun yang pura-pura kehausan.
Duh kalian ini lho, masak cuma gara gara satu kata aja sudah berhasil mengalihkan perhatian.
Saya kan jadi tertarik untuk melanjutkan kata yang lain.
. Misalnya; sayang sekali tinggi Dedek Mini dan tinggi Kakak Gerald bagaikan tangga nada Do ketemu La.
Atau; sayang kamu terlalu baik buat aku, jadi hubungan kita sepertinya harus mengalami kemajuan, yuk kita tingkatkan saldo tabungan.
Atau bisa jadi; sayang, mestinya kamu lihat dulu kejadian yang sebenarnya, karena apa yang kamu lihat saat ini belum tentu itu kejadian yang sebenarnya.

“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” - Michael Jordan @101rams #football#basketball 💪🏽👊🏼🏈

“My mother only gained 13lbs while she was pregnant with me. When I was a little person the adults in my life let me sip off of coffee and cocktails. When I was 11, my parents divorced, my cat died and I got very, very sick all within the same time period. Did anyone or all of these events set me up for a lifetime of struggle with one addiction after the other? I don’t know.
What I do know, is that trauma of any kind can definitely predispose a person for struggles that many others may not have to go through in life. What I do know is that if we have ways to re-parent ourselves when we are adults, we have a much better chance at flourishing in our lives, rather than just surviving.
What if addiction brings us to the threshold of destruction so that we will take deeper and more profound glances inward? And so we grow and we become familiar with our lives and ourselves and something else asks us to grow even more? What if some of us long for the knowledge that we can never completely know ourselves so we want the mystery? Our seemingly endless problems shake us awake so that we put on our explorer hats and go on journeys of the soul?
Maybe, we need a couple more supplies and friends to bring on the adventure?” _Excerpt from I’m Sober: Why Is Life Still Hard?

This is what happens when I go to the beach.... #author#ocean#affair#God#love#womanpoetry As I danced beside you, I realized how you’ve never treated me less. I was never a phase or a one night stand. You saw me completely and accepted me. You clothed me in joy, gave me smiles when tears began to fall. How beautiful you are, restoring my very existence. You never fucked me over, you stayed constant. I was drawn back to you over and over. Nothing, but freedom to be me, to dance, to sing, to fall, to lay and rest. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I ❤️you. -Kara c Adams
@mirandakelton and I went into a pet store over the weekend, and I bought a new hamster, "Harriet." I was going to wait a month out of respect to Theo, but somehow I didn't get that far.

Owls have been showing up for me for years.
I have worked through many things they came to teach me.
Owls help us uncover our fears and see them for what they are.
They help us to see beyond illusions.
And in so doing we experience the truth of what is.
For me I've learned that ego/shadow is nothing more than a collective of thoughts from my past.
And observing my ego with all its thoughts and ideas has brought it into the light of my consciousness so that I may transform it.
I'm still expressing my transformation. And chances are I'll be transforming until I die.
