Why I Had to Take It All Down

I made something for you!

The first time they met it was his stare, he saw through her, he stole her heart. 

He wanted her, his eyes said so. She wanted to be his. He loved her ‘he said’. They were going to build an empire together. Tales and more tales. It scared her. Was all of it real? The first elephant, she felt her presence but not from him but from THEM. She had been willing, eager to accept half truths and so it played out. The first elephant was dismissed but she remained in her memory. But there were more and she knew it. His hugs were limp, his stares were less, calls had to be taken in the next room, the perfume in the car, the arguments. Slowly the elephants manifested. She felt them and saw them in his eyes.

But still she decided he was hers but the Holy Spirit said otherwise. She remained fighting, waiting to be heard. The battle intense, exhausting. She knew she had lost. But still the midnight calls continued, the questions that never got answers. She got sucked in. The mind games. She was ‘resourceful’, she knew him better than anybody else. He said it was her, only her. Then he called her another’s NAME! She knew then he really was no longer hers. Fool her once, his fault, Fool her twice?? IT WAS HER, but not the way she wanted.

The Truth lay hidden, waiting to dispel her fantasy. It really did seem real at the start, she said, but she knew, she knew that person who cooked for her, that person who she stayed up late with while the world slept, that person who could see into her soul. She was the only one who would ever really know him. He existed, but only in her mind. Had any of it been real? She struggled through the days, through the months but she prayed and cried through the brokenness.

One day it hit her and she knew, HIS grace was sufficient. She wiped her last tear. Then she realised that she never let the story be about her. She had always made it about him. It was never meant to be. She was no longer afraid to say that.

When Your Default Emotion is Sadness

"Creation is an extension of thought. Think lack and get lack. Think abundance and you get abundance."  - Marianne Williamson

I can't get enough positive affirmation.  Can't get enough truth and stripped down honesty and inspiration. I'm never satisfied.  Always looking for growth and life lessons and proof of grace.  Because I have always been drawn to sad things and melancholy, anything emotional and heart-wrenching, so I instinctively seek to balance that out.  With meaning and enlightening ideas.  Faith and creativity.  This is the only way I know how to live and thrive.  I'm not always happy, but I'm always hopeful.

Trelani // Women Who Ain't Afraid to Curse When Communicating with God

"Your intuition is your internal guidance; it is Spirit, so the answers are already inside of you. Everything else is either confirmation or a distraction. However, it's our responsibility to keep ourselves open to our inner wisdom, and that calls for creating a lifestyle inclusive of habits (or rituals) that helps us to be our best damn selves mentally, physically and emotionally."

5 Creative Ideas from the Spirit Art Show

On Saturday I attended the Spirit Art Show featuring work by Michelle Izquierdo and Vanessa Smith.  I wan't sure what to expect going in because I haven't attended a lot of art shows and I've never covered one as a blogger.  It was in a lofty, unassuming building in DC called Studio 52.

I really dug the whole vibe, y'all.  Obviously, art everywhere.  Music.  Laid back, intimate atmosphere.  Smiling faces.  Food and wine. Creative conversation.   I was like, Can I do this every Saturday, please?
