Whispers of the Soul

How often are we so distracted from what our heart is saying? Notice, I did not say our minds because we are already so cognitive, always questioning, second guessing, asking for validation, and finding excuses disguised as fear. I said our souls, our hearts. The gentle aspects of ourselves; the parts that speak our personal … Continue reading Whispers of the Soul

Stillness

Stop. Freeze. Heart races, time stops, head spins, and the desire to run, scream, move, itches beneath the skin.

You can't see the life in the waters below,┬áthe tops of your feet, or any sign of … Continue reading Murky Waters

What path will you take?

It is definitely easier to stay in place than to take a leap or change direction. The unknown can be too much to risk. The "What ifs" suffocate you like a dark, ominous cloud, but yet you never even try to look up and see the light. It is definitely easier to distract yourself with … Continue reading What path will you take?
