Just because you are in the dirt doesn't make you a flower. It is the same with moving forward spiritually. Making a choice and acting on it doesn't guarantee instant results. Just like a flower starts at a seed and has to germinate then grown then bud and then bloom, so do we in our daily lives. There is no portal into it but every day is a path to it. We shouldn't beat ourselves up over the process... just move forward in it. Remember we are all on the journey so look at your friends and family (and those who just grate your nerves!) as people in process! I think it’ll make you see things (and those around you) a little differently... it does me!! Alright y'all let's keep moving forward!!

In inspiration of the woman, who looked how I seemed to be feeling at the time.
Now I am awake
asking how did this break?
What I thought
nothing but the same,
and myself I blame.
Shouldn’t have given my whole heart
this pattern feels now like an art
I just can’t see!
Blinded by expectations
don’t know how to go on.
When, oh when?! Will this battle be won?
Why couldn’t this be true?
I feel like such a fool.
God! I’ll love you forever
but grim is this weather.
It… was so damn great
you I’ll never hate.
So much I learnt
wish I didn’t get burnt
so much I thought would come true
lonely I’d be no more
someone to always stand beside
and… not do everything on my own.

Then my friend Ansley said this ~
How am I suppose to play with these cars when I only have one piece of the race track left?? As I looked at the picture I had a few different ideas, but that was the first thing that popped into my head. Probable because I spent 2 hours playing with Dax and his car track - which he took apart 900 times and couldn't figure out why the cars didn't work as well on the carpet - Ha!!
Lastly saw this ~
There is a certain feeling that you get when you belong in two worlds. You would think that it is a feeling of elation because you are home in more places but the reality is that you really belong nowhere. You don’t quite fit into childhood and you definitely aren’t an adult…. So where are you? Who are you? And where do you go from here? The hardest part is that you don’t have a choice, nature makes that one for you and until you get there you are simply along for the journey. So the thing is see most here is “trapped”.
Thanks to all who have particiapted!!! I love seeing through your eyes!!! and a special thanks goes to Himitsuhana for allowing me to use her wonderful photograph!! you see more of her pictures Here .

Here’s how it works! I post a picture like the one below and each of you simply write down what you see. It can be a story, a poem, or just an initial reaction. Just write something from YOUR point of view! You can leave it in the comment section of this post or you can email it me at firstname.lastname@example.org. In a week I will post all of the reactions to the picture and we can all get a look from someone else’s perspective!
I was traipsing through Flickr yesterday and ran across the wonderful picture above. It is form a wonderful photographer from Italy named Himitsuhana. She has a great collection of photography that pulls you into a little fantasy moment! I love them. You can view all of her pictures Here .
So now it’s your turn. Who is this girl? What’s going on in her life right now? What is she feeling? Just some thoughts! I can’t wait to see what you see!
To get an idea of how the last "Tell Me What You See Challenge" went look
HERE and HERE
See you Soon!!

"Forget about the worries of the past... they'll only contrast with what the future holds" ~ Adrianne Archie
This is a lyric to a song by Adrianne Archie that I wanted to share. I have been in a distant land for the past week and a half... it is a land that is quite deceiving... it is known only as "Procrastination" and yes it is a nation unto itself! I have no idea why I decided to visit but I did and was captured and have not written or thought for way too long! So I'm back! I was stuck in a little rut and just felt... well uninspired. You know how you are really excited about something and you tell the people around you and they just kind of give you a blank stare? Well that's what it was like when I told people about this blog. Then I hopped the plane and crossed over the river of despair(it is much darker than the brochure stated) and into procrastination. So once I was there I started beating myself up, calling myself names and then I came across that song and I smiled. I said "you know what? So what I've been a slacker and haven't exactly followed through on my intent to write! Putting it off won't change that fact" So I am forgetting this slight lull and moving full speed ahead. I enjoy it and I will do it. I cannot wait to see the contrast between my past and my future.
Better Me Epiphany ~ My past is only there to make my future brighter. Mess-ups, mistakes, regrets only add color to the painting. The main thing to do is to keep the brush wet.
