I am my forever best friend; embracing my ebbs and flows, forever loving/caring/supporting me, and always looking out for my best interest. I don’t play games with my heart; sure, sometimes my little mind’s trap has tricked me, but, I always find myself again, dust myself off and get back up stronger. No matter what, my higher self will always be there protecting me.

I see myself as many fragments. I am this body but I AM more than that; I am my heart that loves and feels, my soul that grows, my intuition that speaks loudly and my many voices in my head that are all infinite versions of me from many different timelines, perspectives and lives.

Ace

I am a galaxy taking its form as a human. I am the Universe, and the Universe is me. But, that doesn’t mean there aren’t days when I feel very human. This life is up and down, it’s a never-ending rollercoaster. Some days, someone will make you smile, other days they’ll make you nauseous and some days a memory will burn while other days it’ll illuminate. This life of being human comes with emotion. I can honestly say that I am so grateful for that gift; emotion and feelings have become some of my favorite adventures. I think the many labels feelings and emotions come with makes everything a little blurry. Instead, I soak them in and let them breathe, speak and become fully alive. Only when you face your emotion, can the waves settle and the sun shine a little brighter.

This venture on my path is exquisitely meant to be
With open eyes and a smile I can see
Through all the storms, I am divinely free

Do I have all the answers? No – I’m human and soul. This lesson is about learning to rise no matter the pain or hurt; it’s learning to love myself more and to be grateful for the new layers of growth.

I know this feeling, I know this experience; I’ve done it many times and I can certainly do it again. I’m way past being broken, but, that doesn’t mean I don’t feel and I’m not human. Through all that I’ve been through, I can say with complete honesty how grateful I am for me! I AM the soul I dreamed to be years ago, I AM strong, I AM proud of me, I SEE me, I TRUST me, I BELIEVE in me and I AM fearless and free. This journey is mine to soar; nothing and no one can change that – every hurdle, every obstacle is a twist and turn that the Universe in me knows is meant to be.


I sat down to write because, boy did I need to today. This piece is one of my most honest, vulnerable and raw. It’s more of a journal entry and expression to help me move through some tough things. I absolutely love the ending, and I feel I’ll be back reading it many times. I know everyone is going through something and some type of growing pain, but, I encourage you to express and to be vulnerable! Trust me, you’ll feel so much better and free. I hope this helps you on your journey and reminds you – emotion is a beautiful thing, dive into your feelings, YOU are perfectly you, Love is always the answer, pain hurts but it goes away when we face it and that self love is one of the most amazing things in this Universe. Be fearless and free -Ace

I know me and that’s all that matters

    I probably will come back and read this again as well since this was actually a comforting read and I just simply lovee this line ‘I am a galaxy taking its form as a human.’ Accepting your emotions and yourself as a person with all your flaws and talents is a powerful thing to do just like being vulnerable.

Being human is a wonderful feeling that has it’s own perks but it’s interesting to say the least.
