Elevated Bliss

Is it possible to be in awe of your own life? That is how I've been feeling lately.  I've been thoroughly rewarded for my efforts to be a better person, for my belief in positive energy flow and for my faith in the universe. I've changed so much in such a short span of time, but then again, I'm always changing. I forgave to heal. I let go to move forward. I gave without expectation. I simplified and I delve further into developing my understanding of universal energy, life and how to live positively.

It's soo easy to over complicate life by over thinking, by reading into things, but by simply taking things as they are, as they are shown to you, life is much easier. Accepting not only that you are only in control of yourself, but also that what others do has nothing to do with you, creates peace. Living in and focusing on the present, being present in the now, releases depression and anxiety. Enjoy what you are being given right now. Consistently think positive thoughts and practice gratefulness to continue receiving good things. AND, have faith that any trials that come your way are for the greater good.

My life is very surreal right now and I am extremely grateful. My children are growing and learning, developing and becoming wonderful lil' people. I'm proud of them and of my efforts to continually improve my parenting skills. I'm part of the healthiest relationship I've ever had with a complimentary man that is everything I could ever want. I'm incredibly lucky to have the perfect partner for me. I have family, great friends, my health and steady income. There's nothing lacking.  There's an ever present desire to learn, grow, love and, not only be happy, but hopefully spread that happiness to others.

I don't write this to be smug.  I make mistakes.  Some days are easier than others to follow the path of positivity and gratefulness.  I do my best daily, learn from my mistakes and work to do better the next day.  I can always improve and will always strive to.

Hopefully Romantic




Nothing to hide, no games to play

Just open up, discuss and learn

Share and grow, build that foundation

Similar views, differing views, experiences to share

Is there something there? Do you feel it?

Let's not label it, no box to be placed in

Just live, learn, laugh

No expectations, pure enjoyment

Be in the moment, the now of what's happening

Learn the past, build the future, the present is a gift, enjoy


The loyal friend, the faithful lover and the trusted confidant

The ear to listen, the shoulder to cry on and the aide in getting back up

The sharer of laughs, the cheerleader of triumphs and the equal developer of dreams

The rock for the weakened, the increased strength thru the trials and the ever present when needed

The provider of safe self expression, true acceptance and constant support

The unconditional lover, the open communicator and the confidence builder

The unwavering team mate, traveling hand-in-hand throughout the journey of life



I urge you, lovers
to openly communicate
without fear of reaction
with trust in your partner
and in what you've built

I urge you, lovers
to share selflessly
not in possessions but in thoughts and feelings
for secrets kept create divides

I urge you, lovers
to encourage each other everyday
to never put conditions on your love
and to give it freely without expectation

I urge you, lovers
to look within each other and truly see
to not only see, but accept
to not only accept, but admire

I urge you, lovers
to renew your love
to keep your fires lit
to enjoy each other
outside of everyday life

I urge you, lovers
to admire what you've built
to appreciate your life team's handiwork
and to never take it for granted
