Everything and Not Enough don’t fit in the same Box.

 

outside the box 2

Now what?

It’s your turn. I’ve had my share of cupcake sales and road trips and now it’s your turn. And if mediocre just won’t get there then Turn up the volume and use your pain to push you forward – just to be clear…. I don’t really care. Or do I?

And even if I did it shouldn’t really matter. I can’t make you more of who you are anymore than I can make you a star. That parts up to you…   Oh You.

So, Now what? Are you waiting for someone to set you on fire – to remind you that you’ve been given a life – with your own will power?

You’ve got it, I’ve got it, they’ve got it… so what? If you don’t ever use it then what is the point. If you say one thing and do another don’t wait for me to save you because I never could anyway. I can hold the light, the bar, the noose but ultimately it’s you who will choose to fight for your life – for your LIFE.   This is no small task when you run into the dark and wait for someone elses spark to remind you of who you are. You have the will to see in the dark and if you look the other way I can’t help you, no matter how hard I’d like to. I am small and I am big but I decided one day to not dim my light so that yours could shine brighter. That’s not my job. That’s not my sacrifice and by the way it’s not for you to decide. You have the same access to will power as I do and the same access to the light… the same relationship to ‘what do I want’ as I do. We make it up. I made it up. Now you make it up. Point and Shoot. You can have it all, but…

Everything and not enough don’t fit in the same box.

So…now what?

Have you ever wondered what life would be like if there were no box at all? No container, no limits, no boundaries, no ……………….. –    wait       – Did I just say no boundaries?!?!! Talk about a double-edged sword. I mean, who doesn’t want freedom but at the same time safety? How do we find the comfort we need to feel safe which gives us the courage to explore our freedom – if not for a container, boundaries or limits?

So many people are struggling. Trying to find answers in the dark without turning on their own flashlights. People!!! You’ve got access to the switch. You’ve got free will to flip it. Do your part. It’s your turn.

Now what? Flip your Switch. I mean…. If you want what you want.

Reflection

reflection-s1llcr11
Yes. No. Do we want it or don’t we. I mean, here we are asking everyone to see who we are but heaven forbid if we look in the mirror. What is all this about anyway? What are we looking for? Who are we hiding from? I only know my own reflection and yet I see you in it. I see you in me. I see me in you.
And you? What do you see when you look? How many more days and nights are you going to be in there? Do you want me to come find you? Ok… ready or not, here I come. Wait. What? You don’t want me to come find you? Make up your mind.
I am bold. I am fierce. And I arrived here with all the sounds, colors and visions of ancient times – and with just as much passion and desire to be seen as you.
Yes, You.
With your beautiful eyes that dance in my sight. With the knowing of innocence and your painful flight – your dreams once shattered when nothing else mattered and yet you stand before me and tell me everything is All RIGHT.
Indeed.
Oh You.
Let the whistle blow for a thousand miles and carry the sounds of my ancestors bound by silence. Those days are no more, for evolve we have and the sound of my voice is no accident. I have come to be still in the face of resistance and to beckon my helpers from unseen worlds of acceptance. To see and be seen we need each other.
And sometimes we need help.
I’m not afraid to declare it.
I’m no longer afraid to ask for it.
And now I am brave enough to receive it.
Yes Please, and Thank You.

I took a leap of faith…

leap_of_faith_by_nickoreal

I took a leap of faith. It’s not surprising. It’s what most would expect of me anyway. I mean, I never was one for standing still. My dad used to say “Junie, you can’t hit a moving target” and I took that to heart. Get a move on… say yes – and if you don’t know what you’re doing or where you’re going then that’s ok too. Because a minute from now is a long time and a lot can change in a minute.

Oh, just a minute. She says… well turn up the fire and pedal to the medal a minute is a mighty long time. I can change my mind; I can make it a rhyme as long as I don’t care if I’ve got enough time. I get to decide the twist and the turns and my revelations are subject to burn in a seconds notice… because…

I took a leap of faith.

Parade yourself in the face of reflection that you are the answer to all life’s directions.

I love you. How could I not? From every direction I am still the same me… sitting on my daddy’s knee, in my minds eye, at a time when moving was so yesterday.

So –

I took a leap of faith.

Inside Outside It’s all the same.

A wild hunted heart can never be tamed.

Leap. I dare you.   The sky might just catch you and the ground send you flying – for the only thing that matters is there’s movement and you can’t do anything about it.

Just BE. Now that’s a leap of faith.

I dare you. I share you. I am you.

We Are.

We are challenged and called and drawn to each other. We swim to the shore for safety and cover. And we love. Oh how we love. With abandon and hope and terror and understanding. Or do we. Or can we. Or shall we. Are we? Are we here for each other? Do you know what that means? The phone calls, the one-liners, the rehearsing your dreams. For me. My love. My sacred self. My one and only truest of truths… I’ve got you. I am you. I share you. I dare you.

Leap. And Leap again. And again.

I love you. I surrender. There is no place else to go, but home.

You’re welcome. It took you long enough.
