Reflection and the Purge part 2: There may be Blood

Here is part 2 of Reflection and the Purge. If you missed part one click here.  Warning there may be blood.

Oh yeah… the dangerous boy. This girl knew it right away. He was it, the one, the perfect piece of forbidden fruit. No need for her to search anymore. They fell hard and fast for each other. He from the wrong side of the tracks and she from the perfect plastic family on a more perfect side of town. No it wasn’t a match made in Heaven but it started out so well. She was so happy and he took care of everything, yes everything and maybe a little too well.

Then her beautiful blue sky turned angry and full of unnecessary evils. This girl once free and full of life was now trapped under glass. She could see the world spinning around without her. His grip was so tight and his fingers became imbedded deep in her flesh. She waited, she begged and before long she had no choice. Her life once lived was no where to be found and the only way she could live again was to break free of the glass that imprisoned her soul. She knew this wouldn’t be easy and yes there may be blood  but the option to whither away was not a choice she could make. So, this girl took a deep breath and fought her way free, finally shattering the glass. There were tears, and things were broken, so very broken. Yes, it did hurt a little, well actually a lot,  and there was plenty of blood but she was finally free and standing on her own two feet. She was free to breath the fresh air, pick the flowers or go to lunch with a friend without worry. Life was good and she knew it.

“What happened to the dangerous boy?” you ask. She knows where he is and it’s not far away but none of that matters. Yeah, there are emotional scars but this girl is free and as curious as ever.  I think she has learned her lesson and stays on her own side of town but even so, she can’t pass up the chance to dip her toes in the wild waters from time to time. 

Next post is a Travel Treasure give-away.  Oh my!

Leap of faith and the Courage to Fly

empty-roomHave you ever felt like you were stuck in one place- just like a fly trapped on a piece of flypaper? A time when you could see your surroundings and knew where you wanted to go but just couldn’t get there. Have you ever just taken that leap of faith no matter what it cost, even if it meant ripping yourself free of the sticky paper and losing a wing or tiny piece of yourself? Did you do it? Was it worth it?

It has been one year since I did just that. I was working in a place that was killing me. It wasn’t the job so much as the people. They were life suckers- you know the kind – hate themselves therefore can’t stand to see anyone else happy. The place was toxic and I was becoming a person that I didn’t recognize.  So…. I closed my eyes, cut the cord and then took a giant leap. It was so painful and really scary but it has been an amazing year. No, I am not technically, gainfully employed,yet, and I haven’t made any huge strides. But I think I know myself a little better and I’ve explored life so much more. The passing of a year has made me reflect on what I really want. It has forced a question of reality; what can I achieve? I would like to say if you believe it -you can achieve it. Hmmm is that really true? I guess I have to say that I’m still a work in progress but I have no regrets.

Share with me a leap that you took or would like to take. Tell me what your inspiration was or is. Where did you get your courage? We have to be brave in every tiny step or giant leap we take. Have faith in the universe and show us brave spirit. I’m looking for a little boost of inspiration in your stories to get me over that one year hump. Inspire me with your dreams. I am daring you to unleash your passion. Tell me what your journey felt like- Inspire me.
