"One of the best gifts I recently received is the gift of an open heart. I've yearned for another to look back at me and as I them. Gratitude doesn't even begin to describe it Reflecting on my past year almost one year since I met him, I've experienced so many dark emotions we try and shelter ourselves from. Grief. Betrayal. Hurt. Sorrow. Mourning. Really this past year took me into starying down the darkest parts of my soul and shining a bright light right into the face of all those dark secrets. In doing so, I don't think I've ever been brighter or more sparkly. Website check. Facebook promotion check. Now to pour my love and assured positive energy into making me better. I have no doubt in my future. I have love and laughter and wonderful people around me who support me and their confidence is shedding the past. Despite the at times real, honest loneliness that comes with it. Growing, evolving, is real hard work. And not for the ego seekers. It takes vulnerability and honesty to embark on this path of Soul. I maintain my faith that

"Begin to weave and God will give me his thread."

Everyday I embark to self-discovery, to seek centeredness, grounded in the present. Not ruled by my emotions any more. One of the lessons is when carrying other people's baggage, you arms are full--your emotional luggage relegated and waiting. If left unattended for too long, someone is bound to pick through it, taking all the worthwhile stuff, leaving the unglamorous parts strewn about the side walk. 

You're called here to find love for yourself. To care for yourself. You're called here to make a positive impact. You will embrace your light. It's already happening. When you listen to the language of your emotions, you are able to love. Going through the dark parts of life is natural, it makes you more brilliant. We are here to shine so others can see."
