Relationships & Life
I'm an avid believer in dreams. Dreams are the visions settled in your soul that you have an unavoidable urge to pursue. They are like a stunning surge of energy pushing its way into reacting as every cell in your body lives its truth. I feel like dreams are the gathering of small flames anticipating being ignited. When you follow your dreams and passions flames are built to engulf the life of negativity, fear, and doubt in the world. So in a sense everyone is relying on you to be you, find your truth, and pursue your destiny with such power. As I always I believe in you even when don't believe in yourself! #truth
I learned how to see my truth by going here at times
So as I think about the mission of life and the results of following your destiny I become all enthralled in the reality that is... We are not allowed to not follow our hearts or dreams simply because if we do not we in turn force ourselves and others to be miserable- The truth is we rely on one another so much that if one of us struggles to let happiness become of them, fear then sets in for all of us. I refuse to be the reason another cannot be themselves when the worst that can happen is nothing less than the best. Right now, I am following my feelings. Earlier today I had a discussion with a friend all through text that inspired me so much that I excitedly willed myself to do something that I have been procrastinating for really years. what a blessing it is to be surrounded by those that believe in you. Know that, no matter how far I am or no matter how close we may be, I wholeheartedly believe in YOU and thank YOU for following your dreams!!Love YOU!
Music has always been my go to counselor, my way of feeling in the moment, and being one with the beat makes me feel so in tuned with all my emotions. Music heals, makes you feel, and gives your emotions a voice without you even knowing it. No matter what somehow I am always surrounded by some melody. If you silence your own thoughts or even if you don't, you will notice everything has a rhythm to it. I have been blessed to be around talented musicians, and I have been exposed to a variety. For that, I love pretty much all music that moves me through words or the beat. I loves IT :)
Right now, I have One Republics new album on repeat!!
I'm so sensitive to life, to love, to people's energy. I want the best for everyone. I see the best in everyone even when they cannot see it in themselves. I want everyone to have the love and care that they need to the point that they are so satisfied by their hearts hurt, and hearts comeback that they appreciate and feel that they have experienced their life more than they ever thought they could. I have a job in which I have the chance to connect and converse with so many different type of people. I take the time to understand that everyone is present to have an impact on your life in a great way. You just have to notice it.
I am saddened by the death of a woman that showed me that you cannot judge a person by their appearance. You cannot know who someone is simply by looking at them. I think she was just a reminder. She was who she was. Settled in her space, loving, complicated, opinionated, and wise.
She saw me and most importantly I saw her. At first we missed one another, my belief is it all happened because we each had our initial judgements about each other. Then one day, we noticed one another truly. We took the time to speak, and look into each other's eyes and that is when it happened. At that point we began to talk, she trusted me, and whether it makes sense to others or not I loved her because I saw her heart, and her soul. I saw her pain, joys, and questions and that is why we are all here...to see one another.
Florence, I will never forget you. I will not forget your voice, nor forget you telling me, " Tamika, I really look forward to seeing you."
You changed me...and I don't even think you tried.
In memory of Florence Banta
My deepest condolences to her family and friends...
Using your voice does not always mean to speak, but rather to be really committed to what you feel is right and expressing that in whatever form of communication your desire. We depend on one another to assist us in growing and exploring the wonderful world we inhabit. It is through the expression of others that creates an enchantment as well as challenging thrusts of change within us all. Today, I had a settling feeling within myself. First, I would like to say feelings are the voice of your heart, they are the truth that has been instilled in you through your connections to what is larger than you, whatever you may consider that to be. As I felt the settling thought, I was pierced with a great understanding that I have continued to be broken out of the fear of not using my voice. For so long I was so worried about what others may think once I opened my mouth to truly give the information that travels continuously in my mind. It is the truth of my thoughts that has transcended beyond what makes sense, but has reached the tingling beliefs of those needed to grasp the truth for themselves. So remember when you communicate with a pure intention, what is needed to be heard or understood will be. It is all about taking the risk, stepping out of your comfort zone and truly being the dictator of what needs to be said because most likely the universe is waiting on you to do so.
I believe in what you have to say...remember to believe
So I am known to care about others a bit much. I am one to put my all into another because I never expect anything in return, maybe some genuine appreciation here and there would be nice, but I do things with the notion that this is what is needed, and I enjoy doing it. I love making others happy. It is one of the best parts of living. The truth is at times I can care about another so much that it becomes negative to me. Negative in the sense that I may allow my energy to be used and others take it all for granted. I don't necessarily mind it too much because I understand giving ones self with a pure intention creates an enlightened energy no matter how the person may respond. If a person reacts negatively to your offers, it now becomes their responsibility to grasp the reasoning and take on the karmic energy of such an action. I would like to prevent others from having to deal with that energy, but the truth is we can not make choices for others. I know some may not get this, but most of you will. In order to accomplish all of your lifes goals, to maintain your lifes current status, and to truly manifest the life of your dreams, you must be a listener and stop fighting the truth. In the midst of moments when I see others and they choose to lie to themselves there comes a point when my caring soon ceases. At that time, I will no longer have any bond of missing you, it will all be the other way around. You get it??
I will forever love you...but
