Findest thine the soul of self
Buried in dept of solitudes
Where thou art in peace of mind
Tranquil to heart’s beat to life
The somber breeze passes not
Yet restest upon thine being
As forest’s leaves sing praise
Symphonic in combined pieces
From the moon to stars
The outers of space
Crickets chirp to night’s delight
To darkness that is truly not
Ocean’s seas pondereth waves
To orchestrate a solstice peace
Yet another player for thine
To bury thyself in solitudes grace
Struggling through the ups and downs of everyday life can be exhausting, exhilarating, eventful, and rewarding…just to name a few ways of describing the twists and turns that have come, gone and also awaits us. Getting knocked down by circumstances in which we have no control can suck valuable reserves from our very being, taking with it the desire to continue on with our ventures, our goals, fulfilling our dreams.
I think it is important to hold onto dreams that some would say to lay aside and move on. I say move on with those dreams for the encouragement of hope. Many businesses today have gone through exactly that in reaching what they have achieved thus far. Some will continue to struggle to stay afloat and in doing so, changes are on the horizon. For some, success comes so easy, it’s as if they don’t even have to try.
I envy those who don’t give up so easily. Those that choose to take a breath and collect themselves and get their bearings again to find that direction, the path that will lead them to that place of achievement, the threshold of success.
I guess you can say that I have taken that breath for a moment or two….to get my bearings….to see the sunrise and feel it’s warmth. To see the hope that are my dreams. The dreams I didn’t allow to stay behind when the mountains were too wide to venture around but seemed to steep to climb, but was my only path while the storms raged during my climb. Well, maybe it wasn’t that bad…nonetheless…
We are not alone with the bumps in the road.
I have a new follower on my blog today and I went to her blog to see what she was up to and read this post that to me, was captivating. The name of her blog is Honey and the Baker. I found it to be an encouraging read. I know many people are on roller coaster rides in life, but this post came to me just as I was thinking of the ups and downs of my past few months. So at least from that post, I can relate to the Baker. I’m sure is going to be just fine.
So now, I am getting my groove on again and looking to get my brand going with some changes on the way. I can’t allow my long hours at work to be a deterrent anymore. I have to get past that. I’m not alone. I have my dreams with me.
I would love to have you check up on me to see my progression.
Many people think, at the cusp of a relationship, it will be all hearts and roses.
Sure the beginning for some if not all, is just that.
Hearts aflutter, butterfly stomachs, star gazed eyes, sweaty palms and minty breaths.
Then there are times when you just don’t know which direction
the relationship is going.
You can’t seem to agree on anything, nor can either of you head in the same direction.
Being on the same page is out of the question. Hormones and testosterone bouncing of the walls,
oozing through pores and doing everything but meshing in unity.
And so it goes, except…..
……sometimes things can really get ugly.
Oh, you thought is was bad before? Well just hang on tight because now confusion sets in to a point of
confusion and hands get thrown into the air as if to say…I give up! Not only are you going opposite ways,
but you’re blindly making choices that make no sense other than to get back at the
other or just to be mean….oh yeaaah!!!
It’s just a cluster at this point.
Then something happens that maybe no one expected or hoped it would.
You find yourselves meeting in the middle with compromise.
All is not lost after all.
Love is still in the air…really. What happened after the love at first sight
and after the turmoil is what was always there in the midst of confusion.
The middle, the center, the firm foundation that started it all.
Hearts filled with love.
Relationships are like jobs. You have to work them with every tick of time.
