There are no accidents, there are no coincidences; there is only truth. And your truth is being revealed to you through synchronistic rendezvous with people and circumstances that are vibrating similar frequencies as you, so that you become aware of what you are transmitting into the universe for the purpose of experiencing, learning and then finally fine tuning your vibration to enhance your physical experience.
Everyone that comes into your life is your teacher and vice versa. Our connection with others and what we experience is a reflection of ourselves.

As human beings we are constantly outgrowing what we once thought we couldn’t live without, and falling in love with what we didn’t even know we wanted. Life literally keeps leading us on journeys we would never go on if it were up to us.
What’s something you’ve moved on from that once meant the world to you? And, what’s something you love today that you never even knew you needed in your life?

Well, I hope that I don't
fall in love with you
Cause falling in love
just makes me blue
Well, the music plays and you
display your heart for me to see
I had a beer and now I hear you
calling out for me
And I hope that I don't
fall in love with you
The first step is always the hardest. The next step is easier, but still scary. The edge of the ledge is the struggle - you look down and hear all the reasons why you shouldn't fall. You remember how frail your body is, you remember your bones will be crushed by the impact, you remember gravity and how there's no way you'd go up - you always hit the ground.
The free fall is scary, they say. No one wants to welcome the uncertain with open arms. And somehow, the fear gets bigger, louder and more reasonable. Until the only thing that makes sense is turning around, cutting your losses and staying huddled in the dark corner, ashamed yet relieved because you are safe.
Sometimes, the perso...
Do not go gentle
into that good night.
Rage, rage against
the dying of the light.

You met new people, learned new things and felt new feelings. You did so many things that made you scared, you picked yourself up off the floor after feeling completely defeated or heartbroken. There were some really tough nights but you survived them all. You made people happy just by existing. You accepted many goodbyes but the serendipitous meetings made up for them. It was your own hard work that paid off but you always downplay it or compare yourself to others. That's not fair on yourself because you've come so far from the first day of this year. You have more wisdom and strength now. Yes, other people seem more "successful" but does that even matter? Please don't think so lowly of your...
Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide,
no escape from reality
Open your eyes,
look up to the skies & see
“To be successful you don't need a beautiful face and a heroic body, what you need is a skilful mind and ability to perform.”
I just want you for my own
More than you
could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas

"Life is never completely
without its challenges."
— Stan Lee (1922-2018)
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
“I wish I could throw off the thoughts which poison my happiness, but I take a kind of pleasure in indulging them.”
For even if I'm far away,
I hold you in my heart
I sing a secret song to you,
each night we are apart
