Why I Left Paradise

While organizing I came across just shy of 15 journals, I admittedly have a problem, and I found something I had posted in a blog a couple of years ago. Here it is again with some minor edits:

Why I Left Paradise

I was born and raised in Miami, but today I live in New England (that’s a 1400 mile and 3 layers of clothing change) and the number one question I get asked ALL the time is:

Oh my soul.

Somedays I feel unstoppable.
Somedays I feel like the ground is going to open up and just swallow me whole.
Somedays… I wish it actually would.
But everyday I get up and fight the good fight.
I wish my soul wasn’t so familiar with transmutation.
But transmutation is magic.
And me?

Switching Gears

The last couple of months have been such a rollercoaster of emotions for me. I have spent a lot of time on introspection. I’ve asked myself WHY a lot. The more I asked, the more I tried to dig deep, the worse I felt. Turns out I’d been doing it wrong. Asking myself Why wasn’t going to make me more aware of myself and it wasn’t going to give me the answers on someone else’s behavior. In fact, it negatively affected my relationship with people I care for and made me a less effective employee. What I should have been doing is treating myself like a business, I should have been asking WHAT and not WHY. Continue reading “Switching Gears”
