I felt very certain this time I wasn’t going to let myself drown for lust, 
this time I’d hold my ground for love.

Potential is inherent in everything and everyone. 
It is a very admirable thing to be able to see the potential in people and in things. 
After all, It us the underlying truth of who we are. We are potential energy. 
The problem sets in when we decide to commit to a relationship 
with someone based on potential.
When we first meet someone, many of us make the mistake of seeing what they could be instead of what they are and so, in the beginning when our focus is purely positive 
towards them, we are happy with them.
 We are happy when we are still banking on them becoming 
what we actually want them to be. 
We look forward to our future with them. 
The relationship feels like it is full of promise. 
And the promise of a better future makes our current lives more enjoyable to live. But eventually, we begin to notice where we are instead of where we want to be. 
We notice who they are instead of who we want them to be. 
Our illusion is shattered.
Fall in love with what is, not what could be. 
This doesn’t make you a person of little faith. 
You can still have faith in someone;
 just don’t base your decision to be in a relationship with someone off of faith. 
Because if you do, you don’t really love them, you love what they could be. 
You have fallen in love with an illusion. 
You have fallen in love with something that does not exist. 
All that truly exists is now. The past does not exist and the future does not exist. 
Eventually, you will find yourself in the now and all you will see relative to your partner, 
is the lack of what you want them to be.

Teal Swan


I want to stay.
I want to leave.
I am three oceans away from my soul.

Nayyirah Waheed 

Distress is caused by being ‘here’ when actually wanting to be ‘there’.
How do we forgive ourselves for all of the things we did not become?

'If you tell the truth, it becomes a part of your past. If you don’t tell the truth, 
it becomes a part of your future.
Acknowledgement is key. 
Even when you think you are successfully avoiding a situation or a feeling, 
it will follow you until you get clear and you acknowledge it.
You must suspend all judgment and surrender all fear.'

inner self

I can easily become exhausted around the banter of noisy egos.
I don’t enjoy superficial but flourish in meaningful.
I’d rather have silence, a good book and some dark chocolate than attend a party.
I’m not “cool” or “hip.” 
I don’t dress flashy or in-style. Fitting in, is difficult.
I sort of blend but I don’t mix well.
I can play the extrovert but prefer my introverted heart.
The former leaves me exhausted.
I can hear emotions hiding in the shadow of false bravado.
I can see when eyes truly twinkle or blink back a tear.
It’s exhausting to feel all of the time, so I am hanging out in low gear.
It is a space above an imaginary watermark. 
It’s not an easy place to be.
I tread the water in my soul.
I hide under a lily pad, peeking out occasionally but mostly staying tucked in.
The water is tepid and the weight of the lily pad is comforting.
It’s okay to rest.
I need to rest in this quietness
 and give myself permission 
to recalibrate my heart of emotions.
It’s a sandstorm of chipping away debris and filling it with love.
My inner camera lens seeks truth as I burn through my karma.

Take your bravery

and hold its hand while you run
straight into my arms.
