Words long overdue, gone a bit long without writing
Felt like I’d forgotten how
Words aren’t overdue, just gone unwritten. You’ll never forget how as long as you truly listen
Words come to me when I welcome them through
Listening to words of affirmation replenishes my youthful spirit, replaces the doubt and “lack” of vision
Words within my imagination waiting to be written
There is no such thing as the perfect time, only the now
Words within me will not go unwritten
Words within me are not stuck
Put pen to paper or hands to keyboard
No matter the medium, keep writing
The more you write, the easier it will be
Feelings of inspiration can be fleeting. I spent the past week riding the roller coaster that is inspiration. For a series of moments everything truly does feel possible. Everything. Then, for a series of moments things look gray, that is when the worry and or uncertainty begins to cloud the vision. I consider myself a dreamer, someone who feels on the optimistic side of life. Reading books based around spirituality, self-care, and self-love have helped me to strengthen this way of believing. Lately I have had an abundance of inspiration all around me, I am so grateful for it all. Wether I’m at the grocery store or at home watching a documentary, I often find myself inspired by what I witness.
In light of these moments, I had the realization that a dream needs action behind it to come to fruition. Action and commitment despite what may happen along the journey to meeting a dream face to face in reality.
I titled this post ‘Feelings of Inspiration can be fleeting’ because I want to acknowledge the feeling head on. I don’t wish to let the moments of doubt or uncertainty overshadow the motivation I have to seize moments of inspiration for all they can be.
Surely, I am making my way towards my dreams and I’d encourage anyone with a dream to believe in it.
For the moments when the shadows come marching in I like to affirm to myself:
I can do anything I set my heart to do
It is ok to take your time, rushing isn’t always a solution
I am free to think, do, and believe as I please
Society doesn’t set my standards for living, I do
Faith leads to success
Put spirit first and everything else follows
Nothing is worth the sacrifice of happiness, nothing
May these help others in times of need, keep on dreaming dreamers and feel the vibes of inspiration all around!
Like many 20 somethings, I’ve been going through a lot of internal changes these past couple of years. No one really talks about life after 21, its like society expects people to only celebrate a few of the milestones of youth. But I am discovering that so much lies beyond 21, becoming a 21 year old was just the icing. Your 20s provide you with all the ingredients to the cake.
As I step more and more into my being and who I am, I notice more of what has been given to me and what it is that I would like to keep. When you’re growing up, a lot is told to you. A lot is suggested to you as well, because we learn from example. What I am now embracing is all that lies beyond the box that was given to me. I no longer wish to exist within the confines of the box that I came to be very comfortable in. Getting outside of the box for me simply means that I am not restricting who I am to what I have been told about my being. Life doesn’t stop after you turn 21, you keep growing. More growth probably than ever before, at least for me. This past year I followed my heart and gave myself a chance to live my life on my own terms. Realizing I was still sticking to the status quo of my old life felt frustrating at times, like a “why am I being like this” kind of vibes.
I stopped putting the pressure on myself to be the way that I had been taught and began asking myself; who am I? what do I value, why? what makes my heart sing? A lot of the answers I found existed so far beyond the world I’d been brought up in; Education comes first and holds all the magical answers to life, go to college, get a job, be “successful” in terms that I hadn’t even established but instead adhered to out of habit and obligation.
Once I became still enough to hear what I truly wanted out of this life, I could do nothing except follow the changes that found me. Now I am here, presently living the life I imagined when I was a child. A life I knew was possible but lost touch with once the box found its way around me.
Sometimes it has felt hard for me to be this new version of myself 24/7, because I spent 22 years living in survival mode. I am living life outside of the box now and its pretty cool out here. Choice is out here, love is out here, freedom is out here, bless.

I am here to express myself. I am here to share. I am here because I was guided here, as you were. I am here to give.
Finally created my blog, step one done. Yay for taking first steps. At this point in my life I own around 15 different journals, not including the ones that are filled with images more so than words. At the start of this year, 2021, I got the feeling that it was time for me to share more of who I am, why I am, and what I create. So this is me doing that. I am one of those people with what seems like a hundred different interests going on at once, but its all connected. Making this public helps with my intention to share more and I hope it will bring me into alignment with more ones and ones who will benefit from what I share.
I hope to read this post one day and feel soul happy for taking this first step.
