Repercussions

“Your life is a reflection of what is inside of you. What you hold inside of you is always under YOUR control.” #StuffRareSays

We may not be able to control what happens to us troughout our lives.
BUT
We CAN ccontrol how we percieve and react to it all.

Lessons are all around us. 
Our growth inevitable.

 

 

There is power in our decisions. Each one with equal weight. With each choice there are repercussions and those consequences become our lessons.  “#StuffRareSays

 

Believe in your own self and trust the journey.
Sometimes….
It really does know what it’s doing.

 

Simply put….

 

“Sink or swim?”

When we are at sea we sail.
Shore to shore. 
Through thrashing waves.
We stay afloat
Or
Rock the boat
Either way
We must m
aintain.
The destination

We turn our reigns.

Clarity Of The Mind

“Nothing noursishes the soul quite like the calm and blissful serenity of a quiet and still moment.” #StuffRareSays

Do you hear that?

YUP!!

I’m gonna say it…

You’ve probably said it!

Were ALL saying it…
Bitmoji Image

The kids are back in school!!!
Bitmoji Image

 I love my kiddos beyond measure.
We all love our kiddos beyond measure.
It is especcially awesome when we get extra time with them.

But

When your work space and home space are combined…
Getting work done can become…
Bitmoji Image
Quite challenging during holiday breaks.

Bitmoji Image

Like y’all didn’t know.

Bitmoji Image

One of my greatest tribulations during this two week break has been the constant struggle to distract and quiet down the little guys
JUST
To slip into my writer zone. 

Bitmoji Image

Do you know how hard it is to convince a kiddo to play quiet time for longer than 10 minutes?!
Bitmoji Image

The hardest part about being a writer WITH deadlines is…
Falling behind.
The hardest challenge an artist faces is…
Being pulled out of their mode. 

One does not simply sit right back down and…
Create. 

Whether your a woodcarver, painter, writer, musician, etc.
You get it.

And so…

A bittersweet yet relieving moment this morning.
As I watched those cutie patooties walk out the door
AND
Embark on their New Year
And
Fresh start.
Finishing off their school year…
With a bang!

As the house grew quiet, I began to soak in the peace of mind and clarity that fills a steadied soul.  

The lesson:
We ALL need ME time.
Without it we cannot be our best selves.
Even a break from our kiddos
Is crucial 
To be a better parent.

With that said,
I’m going to embark on our first official week of the year
back in the…

SO

For now…

Break Away

“Take a moment to look outside when you take that first sip of your cup. The most meaningful answers and components in your life wait within that moment of silence.” #StuffRareSays

Good morning,
Bitmoji Image

 

Spiraling into a black abyss
Weighing Shoulders
On the brink
Carefully twisted
In the mix

Unraveling.

Life’s unknowns
Within the bounds.
Breaking and shredding
Round and round.
©Rarenwise 1-5-19

We experience moments in our lives when we FEEL that way.
Bitmoji Image
Everything is spiraling.
You feel like you’re tumbling
AND
Anxieties are rushing
BECAUSE
We fear the fall.

YET

Lack to remember:
Once upon a time we HAD to learn how to fall
Before
Learning the balance it takess to walk.

 

“Don’t let your milestones and trials be a thorn in your spirit. Instead, use the lessons as stepping stones.” #StuffRareSays

 

Sundays are always a great day to step back and reflect.
After this week, I think I’ll be doing JUST that.

A Year In Review: The Power In Numbers

“You’ll never know the impact you can make if you’re unwilling to get out there and exercise your voice.” #StuffRareSays

⇓Scroll Down⇓

 

 

 

 

“There is nothing quite like coming out of my usual beginning of the year, three month tunnel of darkness like the spring of life into summer.”  
Bitmoji Image

Even though I didn’t win the election, I WAS and STILL AM on a mission.

The success of my mission has not ever been dependent on winning.

So…

I stayed involved.

It was an amazing summer.
Not because it was filled with lots of relaxation and awesome vacations.
If only….

But

Because I got to take part in helping various organizations, strive hard to make a difference.
Within and outside the community.

I’d never seen the power in numbers come into play until I took part in witnessing the large numbers of people coming together in protest over REAL causes and concerns involving the greater good of…

The people.

It was through this time that I’d spoke with, impressed with my viewpoint, and shook hands with…

A gentleman who I’d had no clue would soon take part in a decision making process for OUR school.
A five minute conversation, a question asked, and a revelation made.

“Given the right opportunity anything can be achieved.” #StuffRareSays

 

These events led up to that day….

The impact: I walked into a decision making boardroom, and waited in anticipation. Loads of people started piling in. So many, that a second room was needed for people waiting to speak. After standing by and listening to forty seven plus people speak their peace, on how natural gas and fossil fuels are destroying the earth and the people on it, in hopes their stance would be taken into consideration, we were hoarded out so the commissioners could decide.

Afterwards, we spoke personally with one of the land commissioners about it more. We did not see or hear of the immediate results but as the days passed, the impact was made clear.

We’d made our difference.

It was during this six week adventure that my eyes began to open more. I started to see who stood by me and who stood apart from me.

From family members, friends, relationships, and much more.

Certain friends showed their true colors as frenemies, family members “Disowned” me, my haters surfaced, people I’d normally enjoyed speaking with had changed towards me, and I no longer knew who I could trust.

YET

My inner circle got tighter, other family members became advisers, my good friends became strong allies and I made tons of strong connections who also became allies.  

On an important note…

I laid down important ground work for the future, and continue to make an impact where impact is needed.

With or without anyone by my side.

Is it fun to be treated differently? Meh…. I’m unique for a reason.

Does it bother me to have haters? Nah…

I came to the revelation long ago that, “If you ain’t got no haters you ain’t poppn’”

SO

In case any of you need to hear it?

Let your haters be your motivators!!

Trust me when I say,

“It’s not about what time you show up for action but rather that you are there.” #StuffRaresays

Let us hope that statement doesn’t fall upon blind eyes and deaf ears.

 

I’m aware that I cannot please everyone and truthfully that is NOT what I’m here for. I’m here to remind us all just how important we all are. For ourselves, for each other, and TOGETHER.

You know…

Simply making sense of this journey we ALL call life.

After all that work was said and done, our strong group of people decided to continue moving forward. Creating amazing and new opportunities for me.

As so….

I took it on…..

 

“I suppose as the years pass the tunnel isn’t so dark anymore. Even though the loss is great, and still heart wrenching, the sting not so prominent.” #StuffRareSays
