A Collective Request

As a writer, I must solute the composers of Jake Bohm’s (played by actor David Mazouz) monologues  in the television series, Touch (2012-2013).

This was a series I was very sad to see come to such a short end, but it’s gems like the one below that I will always remember. I had to share 🙂 

“During cataclysmic global events, our collective consciousness synchronizes.

So do the numeric sequences created by random number generators.

Science can’t explain the phenomenon.

But Religion does

It’s called prayer

A collective request

Sent in unison

A Shared hope

Fear relieved

A life spared

Numbers are constant

Until there not

In times of tragedy

Times of collective joy

In these brief moments

It is only the shared emotional experience

That makes the world seem less random”

Season 1, Episode 7: Noosphere Rising

Nobody is Perfect

It amazes me how much time people waste complaining and gossiping about other people…Doesn’t seem very productive or kind in my personal opinion, but then again I can’t say I’ve never done it. Just happy I am more aware of its negative aspects now and the effect it can have on those around me. Every day I strive to be more aware of my actions. 

Seeing my faults in others, helps in my journey to be a better person 🙂 

A Different Kind Of Life

I hold no grudges

Or dwell on the past

I  burn no bridges 

Or plot my revenge

There is no room for hate in my heart

Or regrets…in my life

For I have learned 

The meaning of the struggle

The importance of the pain

And for all of this I am thankful

Grateful 

For this resulting strength

And a different kind of life 

A Different Kind Of Life

I hold no grudges

Or dwell on the past

I  burn no bridges 

Or plot my revenge

There is no room for hate in my heart

Or regrets…in my life

For I have learned 

The meaning of the struggle

The importance of the pain

And for all of this I am thankful

Grateful 

For this resulting strength

And a different kind of life 

Love’s Learning Curve

It may sound silly, but despite my track record, I still believe in true love.

My opinions and expectations of it have changed a bit over the years, however.

I no longer need it to complete me, but rather look forward to the additional happiness it will bring to my life.

Maybe it is the wisdom that comes with age or the pure act of loving myself, but either way, I have learned that building something up in my own mind does not make it real.

People say things they don’t mean all the time and it is up to us to decide whether to take it to heart.

I’ve talked to a lot of my guys friends about the subject and the consensus has been that in most cases, we make the situation much more complicated in our minds than it really needs to be.

The truth is that if someone really loves you and wants to be with you, there will be no stopping them.

So all this time we spend waiting by the phone hoping he will call is pointless.

If he felt the same as you, there would be no waiting by the phone. There would be no question in your mind as to whether he is thinking about you or not. If he was, he would tell you.

Rather than putting your life on hold and hoping for something that is obviously not mutual, you need to pick yourself up and move on.

If they really want you, men will fight for you and most of them enjoy the act of the chase.

Don’t lose faith in yourself or think it is something you did or didn’t do and it is not because you are not worthy of them either. The simple truth is that loving someone does not require them to love you in return.

If you were true, spoke your mind and they just weren’t feeling it, that’s all it is, they were just not feeling it.

The reality is that not everyone we love is who we are supposed to end up with. I’m sure there are plenty of people who want to be with you, but you just don’t feel the same way. It is not always the result of something they did or didn’t do, right?

So why would we think that about ourselves when we are sitting on the other side of the table?

The person you are meant to be with is out there somewhere, but you will never find them if you are too busy waiting on the wrong person’s feelings to change.

I know it hurts, (trust me I really do) but the rejection of others can actually be a blessing depending on how you look at it.

Call me a hopeless romantic, but I really believe that what is meant to be will always find a way. True love should not be complicated and will not be perfect, but it should come easy.

About a Girl

Once upon a time there was a girl

A girl who dreamed of grandeur

A world beyond her circumstance

A place of peace and security

Absent of fear and doubt.

Filled with inspiration

Flowing with ideas

She wrote

And she wrote

And she wrote

Recording each delicious morsel

In anticipation for the next.

Notebook after notebook

Her words filled the pages

Until one day it was no longer enough

She wanted more

The urge to share her experiences with the world

So she started a blog

Hoping one day she may use these words to inspire

To encourage

To empower…

That day has finally come.

This once young and struggling writer, as of today, is now a published author.

Announcing the official release of….
