I sit down and open my drafts. I let the page stay blank as I look around for something to spark a wave of emotion or inspiration. My shell collection speaks to me first, then my inspiration board loses me in another daydream. Filled with meaningful words people have said to me and poems of my soul’s, I travel to far away timelines and thought cycles. Some words sting and some bring a smile, I guess I’ve found my writing topic.
A friend who’s exited my reality, a coach who’s forever gone but still in my heart, a friend who fades and glimmers, my parents who are my home, my sibling who’s an eternal friend and a friend who’s here but not – A me who is always grateful. No matter what memories come to mind or emotions come to the surface, my heart still bursts with overwhelming gratitude. Yes, I’ve been hurt a lot and challenged in many relationships; but, after many lessons, I’ve learned that gratitude, acceptance and forgiveness is always the answer. Connection means the most to me in this entire world and relationships have taught me oh so much; I feel as though connection is always such a synchronicity. The Universe brings people into your life for a time, a season or a forever and those people are stepping stones in your journey – always.
My eyes drift to some of my poems – oh I know it’s my writing, but is it really? When I write, I express and when I express something comes out of me. That something, I think, is the purest me and the purest form of the Universe – my soul. This channeling is a different type of connection, it’s the connection to all the fragments of me in every dimension, reality, life and galaxy – it’s where I feel at home. I can get this connection on the tennis court, my second home, through the vibration of the adrenaline. But, when I’m writing it’s much more powerful – the two homes balance each other out. Both are expressive and have their own unique flow and without tennis, I wouldn’t be writing and without writing, I wouldn’t enjoy tennis as much.
I think the reason my inspiration board is inspiring to me, is that it always lets me reflect in a million different daydreams. I can look back on those vivid experiences of emotions when someone said that, or when I channeled a certain piece or the many different journeys I’ve been on in my infinite journey. It’s always important to have some quiet time and sit with yourself. In these conversations I have with myself, sometimes the most random things pop up, but, all these conversations have one thing in common – I always come to this place of peace of how much I’ve grown. I’m sure there will be a day I read this in the future and have that same experience. Self love lets your soul blossom and your heart smile, so, give yourself a little twinkle each day and illuminate your being!
Because you can reflect and reflect, those memories aren’t always perfect, but, YOU are always worth the time to connect.
