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.

you're wonderful.

No one is always gorgeous. No one is always sexy. 
But love is a DECISION. 
Waiting to see whether someone is good enough is childish, and it is BOUND to make the other person feel on some level as though they’re auditioning for the part.
 In that space, we feel nervous, and when we’re nervous, we’re not at our best. 
The ego is looking for someone attractive enough to support. 
The mature and miracle-minded among us support people in BEING attractive. 
Part of working on ourselves, in order to be ready for a profound relationship, 
is learning how to SUPPORT another person in being the best that they can be. 
Partners are meant to have a priestly role in each other’s lives. 
They are meant to help each other access the highest parts within themselves.
I’ve been with men who never seemed to think I was good enough. 
I’ve also been with men who were smart enough to say, 
“You look beautiful tonight” often enough for it to bolster my self-esteem
 and help me show up for life in a more beautiful way. 
None of us are really objectively attractive or unattractive. 
There is no such thing. There are people who MANIFEST the potential 
for sparkle that we all share, and those who don’t. 
Those who do are usually people who some where along the line, 
either from parents or lovers, were told verbally or nonverbally, 
“You’re wonderful and beautiful.” 
Love is to people what water is to plants.

But I don’t believe that life is supposed to make you feel good,
 or to make you feel miserable either. 
Life is just supposed to make you feel.

run to it

The one thing I know for sure is that feelings are rarely mutual, so when they are, 
drop everything, forget belongings and expectations, forget the games, 
the two days between texts, the hard to gets because this is it, 
this is what the entire world is after and you’ve stumbled upon it by chance, by accident
––so take a deep breath, take a step forward, now run, 
collide like planets in the system of a dying sun, 
embrace each other with both arms and let all the rules, 
the opinions and common sense crash down around you. 
Because this is love kid, and it’s all yours. 
Believe me, you’re in for one hell of a ride, 
after all––this is the one thing I know for sure.


I crave the ones who’ve seen confusion and known struggle; 
who have pulled themselves up from the shackles of heartache and strife, 
disappointment and darkness, exhaustion and drain and have risen 
with a heart as open and unwaveringly wide as the ocean itself. 
Give me those people. 
The brave, the vulnerable, the wise, the ones who care for a world, 
and how to better it along with themselves. 
To know their ability in making waves, in shifting patterns with tides
and in creating change. 
Let us become that open ocean. 
And make it rise.

We pause on that nerve-wrecking edge; the edge of transition, 
knowing our decisions will weave into us, harbouring themselves into 
our minds and bodies for years to come, creating stories 
that will surface through the years as we pass down threads of wisdom to others. 
Which way to go? Which direction to choose? How do we decide?

Victoria Erickson

'People aren’t books, I’ve learned.
You can’t bookmark your favorite pieces
to return to whenever you’re feeling lonely;
when the nights get too cold and you
need something familiar to keep you warm,
you can’t reopen their spines and wear
out their pages.'

Between what is said and not meant, and what is meant and not said, most of love is lost.
