#ForAllIntentsAndPurposes

I am thrilled by the thought
Of getting closer
To You
Even tho
#ForAllIntentsAndPurposes
Distance is best

I am thrilled by the thought
Of addressing
You
Even tho
#ForAllIntentsAndPurposes
Silence is best

I am thrilled by the thought
Of sharing fluids
With You
Even tho
#ForAllIntentsAndPurposes
Virtuality is best

I am thrilled
By early morning thoughts
Of You
Warmly rushing through me
Soft and easy

It does the trick

#BarkingUpTheWrongTree

La goutte d’eau qui fait déborder le vase” is a French idiomatic expression, which literally means “the drop of water that has made the vase overflown”. I guess this could be translated in English by the straw that broke the camel’s back, although the accuracy of the French saying pertains much better to my situation. But anyway, this was the first thing that came to my mind this morning after someone’s small and sweet gesture made me reevaluate the way I had lately been handling certain situations.

I firmly believe that every single person touching our life from close or from afar has a specific purpose. This purpose might be obvious or it might not be; however, it is ALWAYS life altering as it guides and influences you through different paths, doors and ultimately helps you experience a meaning-full life.

Furthermore, let’s put it out there: the Universe does not make any mistakes; she has been doing this ish* for a while now and it does not matter what you think you really want; I know you really really want it, and it seems like this is IT – but you are confused; what you want is irrelevant because as the caring and loving entity she is, she will only give you what you NEED.

And in a near or distant future, you’ll see that obviously, at the time, you were barking up the wrong tree. So, It is up to us to do it her way or the hard way.

Sometimes you just need to let the water overflow and #TrustTheProcess.

#AboutTrustingMyGut

I woke up clear headed.

I think that once I’ll intentionally position myself for success and truly accept that failure is part of the growth process, I’ll be blessed with those things I’ve been longing for.

Although I acknowledge the latter (failure as the best thing that can happen to me), what has prevented me from fully accepting it is my fear of rejection and unwillingness to listen to my feelings.

I usually do so because I distrust my emotions and constantly challenge my instinct, that I consider fallible – when it’s in fact probably the most accurately unbiased tool I have at my disposition  – and I should use it.

Yet, I am quick to run my mouth and ask my friends why they think things are one way or the other, when I already know* why, just so to introduce perspectives fitting the narrative I’d like to see unfold.

Well, as cliché as it sounds, actions always speak louder than words, the intentions hardly matter and we do not always get what we want.

Bottom line, when you feel unsettled, trust your gut, Always.

Today, I woke up clear headed and I have decided to accept that everyone in my life has a defined purpose and once that purpose has been fulfilled it’s ok to let go. The quicker I’ll do so, the closer I’ll be from all those things I have been longing for.
