Feels like I flicked the switch

Flipped the script

What is this

Why am I doing it

It was passed down

With the same frown

Tied and bound

Playing the same sound

This can’t be life

There’s got to be more

I’m ready to bust through doors

I don’t care who they’re for

I know for sure

I’m creating a cure

The new mindset galore

Because the boxed one is manure

If I don’t… Who will…

We’ll just continue to pass the pill

Selflessly front the bill

If emptiness could kill

Oh, but it does

If we continue to recreate what it was

Especially if it’s “just because”

Are you willing to be that…

I was awakened in the middle of the night and decided to engage in my favorite 🙈- YouTube. A random video was displayed on the screen. The title was- “Please see before deleting” 🤔- I thought. I’ll give it a try. I am soo lucky I did 💖

Background info- I am experiencing a spiritual awakening. This experience is different for everyone- to say the least. There have been many ups and downs since my spiritual journey has begun. I’ve faced many difficulties in shifting perspectives regarding my whole life. Things I learned… was taught… was told…You have to do it this way… That way won’t work…This is how it’s supposed to be… That’s the ONLY way… 🤔🤔🤔 FALSE!

I had to get real with myself and implement change in various areas of my life. Some known… others unknown by others. I continue to make adjustments. Some people understand what I am experiencing- while others don’t have a clue (which is okay). They often think I’m losing my mind- when in fact… I’m learning how to think on my own… and not live my life as a “zombie”.

To be honest- it kind of hurts when those close to you don’t understand you. I struggle between trying to “state my case” with logical facts… and “it’s not even worth the time… nor energy” 😞.

Today was one of those days when I felt I had to “justify” my recent actions. I know I don’t have to prove anything to anyone. That little girl just took over as she wanted to be accepted- not “outcasted”… 🚘🛑 -pump the brakes… Lesson learned- I don’t owe anyone an explanation for my actions. Rather… I pick and choose who deserves it as a courtesy.

Anyways… back to YouTube…

I do not own rights to the materials referenced in this post.

This video was sooo on point for me- especially considering the day I had. In summary, I came here as an old soul… with a purpose… to elevate my own consciousness… and elevate the vibration of those around me. I must shift my perspective and release much of the old paradigm in which I… my… parents… ancestors… were raised on. Understand me when I say it is WORK!!! Lol. It’s also rewarding 💖.

Nevertheless, the video was encouraging… inspirational… a simple reminder that things will work out… I signed up for this… I can most definitely made for THIS. Now… for the synchronicities… the video was liked 222 times✨ Miracles are manifesting as you co-create with the universe… I noticed the 222 at 12:12 (video timestamp)✨ An acknowledgement of spiritual growth and the angels are working on my behalf💖 The message itself was VERY synchronistic 🦋

Moral of the story… Be true to self and your mission… Don’t feel pressured to convince someone to see your perspective… and last, but DEFINITELY not least- Spirit works in mysterious ways as they drop hints to us… we just have to “pay attention”😎. Have a wonderful day, night, and week 🌈.

I’ve been working on this thing called “patience” A LOT lately. If you know me… you know patience really isn’t my “forte”. I mean… I’m an Aries for starters. Then, my rising is Leo… that’s DOUBLE fire… that simply equates to a person that acts based upon passion, impulse, and instincts. I’ve operated my whole life on those three principles- luckily… I always got what I wanted on the surface…

As I reflect- I realize I could have handled some of my manifestations in a different manner. That is where patience comes into play. I am working on feeling things out… to see how certain things make me feel. I am working on allowing SPIRIT to guide my steps- so I don’t make rash decisions in which I may regret later… this is work in itself because I was so obsessed with “instant gratification”. I am realizing I want to manifest based on longevity and QUALITY…

I am learning that I have to be true to myself as I manifest my desires. No longer can I just “roll” with the first option because it’s wrapped in a golden bow… in all actuality… the package under the bow is not even my style… it isn’t aligned with my soul… These are the things I consider as I am planning for my life and future.

I am also working on having faith and trusting in the universe & spirit. They know my heart, soul, and desires. They know my likes and dislikes. They know situations in which I’d lose my “steam” too quickly. Therefore, it is crucial that I…take my time… patiently wait… trust in spirit… trust in the universe… trust in DIVINE TIMING!

There are often times when our manifestations are right behind that red curtain… however, it may not be completely ready for us at our specified time. For example, would you want the waiter to bring you a pink steak when you requested well done?!? Of course not… so that’s when we have to be patient and trust… ALL things work out for our favor in DIVINE timing✨

I feel so used & abused

By these two

Either way

I knew what to do

I gave them food

To hold onto

I removed their blues

Like clues

How we used to do

Once it was all said and done

I let them be

I hope you enjoyed

My new friends & me😎

New Friend #1
New Friend #2
Not Quite Ready for Friendship Yet😏

I want a career I love… a career that makes me smile as I think about it. A career that makes me feel eager and accomplished- day and night. A career that provides me with the opportunity to use my God given skills and talents. A career that makes me smile as I tell others what I do for a living. A career that allows me to have fun… and BE MYSELF… A career where people feel my passion through simple word of mouth… and just being in my presence. A career that is meaningful and I KNOW I am making a difference…Some may think- that doesn’t exist… and that’s okay for you to feel that way. However, I beg to differ….

Mission initiated 🎬😎✨

Today marks the 3 year “anniversary” that my mother “transitioned”. Three years ago I was a complete WRECK. I had a lot of unanswered questions. I had a lot of hatred in my heart. I was CONFUSED… I’d never get answers to why my childhood was… was it WAS… A year later… I began to understand it a LITTLE… I understood death a bit more… Two years later… I had MORE answers…. It wasn’t so much about the questions that were NOT answered… it was more about forgiveness… it was about understanding people do the best they can… with what they have… WHEN they have it… No longer was it about the “blame game”… it was about accepting things as they were… as they are…

THREE YEARS later…. the story has changed… LIVE LIFE for YOU!!!! Not for what people expect you to do… not based on what you THOUGHT you should do… LIFE is about living as YOU WISH…as YOU DESIRE!!! It’s about getting to the end… and NOT regretting it all…. NOT wishing you did this or that…. It’s truly about doing all that your heart and soul DESIRES…. Tomorrow is NOT PROMISED!!! Do all that you ever dreamed!!!! Live life with NO REGRETS!!! Regardless of what that may look like to others… At the end of the day… they will not be in the casket with YOU… nor… will they be with you in that incinerator… LIVE YOUR LIFE FOR YOOOUUUUUU!!!!! That’s the biggest lesson I’ve learned in these past 365 days to the day…

Hey World! Just “checking in” to say hello. Get out and about. Choose to live- not just exist. I know it’s easier said than done. Sometimes- it’s the simplest things we can do to expand our knowledge and experiences. Don’t wait until “the end” to say…. I wish I would have….. Because after all… it’s

A Whole World out here… for us to experience!

I was inspired this morning by the mention of the dolphin- the dolphin represents playfulness. I thought to myself- I could use a bit more playfulness in my life- LOL. There I had it. My wife and I went on a spontaneous date 🙂 We headed to the science center an hour from our home.

I checked the weather forecast before we left- no rain it said. Lol. Funny thing is is started to rain as we headed towards our destination. Initially, I was a bit bothered and quickly went to check my weather app… However, I quickly “checked” myself. I logically processed there was rain on the windshield. There’s NO NEED to check my weather app because it clearly will not stop the raindrops from falling. In that moment- I realize the sad reality that we are COMPLETELY dependent on our electronic devices and other “conveniences”. I coached myself through this situation- I said… ok… it’s raining.. and what?! How is that stopping you from doing what you need to do?! The sun may even come out once you arrive to your destination. I was super proud of myself in that moment *pumped*.

We arrived at the science center 🙂 Sidenote- the sun came out 🙂 We walked through the aquarium first. We were greeted by fish, sharks, stingrays, and many other beautiful species. One of my highlights were the baby penguins!!! They were sooo cute and playful. I did a little dance and they all came around and gathered by the glass… It truly melted my heart 🙂

We then ventured into the zoo section where we were amongst tortoises, tigers, wolves, and other cool animals. There was even a BEAUTIFUL peacock that showed off a bit- I’ve never seen one open their wings/feathers- lol. It was just an amazing sight. Then, we headed to the friendly farm. I fell in love all over again- I petted an ALPACA… I’d NEVER seen an alpaca up close and personal. I talked to him in a playful manner. He came right over to me and allowed me to pet him. That made my ENTIRE day 🙂

The moral of this post- it’s okay to just have fun and be PLAYFUL. My wife was a bit discouraged when we arrived as there were many school aged children at the center. However, they actually made our trip a bit more exciting. I admired there ability to just enjoy the “simple things”- as I too enjoyed it in those moments. I was actually able to leave my cares behind for a bit. It truly felt great- to just be. Sometimes I get so caught up in my head- that I forget how to be playful. I’m grateful for this science center and the reminder- to live… and appreciate the simple things 🙂
