The Woman with a Foolish Heart

ravenatalker2015She said to him that she’s writing a story. The title, she says, is “The Woman with a Foolish Heart”. He then asks “is this a self reflection then?” She answers with a definite “yes” and then he replies with, “I presume this is past tense” and she says, “mostly” then he says something that changes her story all together. He replies with, “I challenge if it was your heart or mind that was foolish?” So this is where the story becomes changed from what she once believed to what she knows within her soul.

This woman you all must already know is me. The conversation as seen above, is real. The thoughts that filled my mind as I wrote down the title of this story were of memories. Memories of all the times my heart held out hope for a love that was real, only to become shattered with broken promises, denied love, affection and truth. I thought about my fears and prayed to Spirit to please not let me be fooled again. In writing this story it became clear… I was indeed reflecting within the mind and certainly not the heart. Memories and thoughts all coming from the mind of course… but what about my heart? What was in my heart then and what is in my heart right now? There is only one answer, “LOVE”.

The heart holds no fear, doubt, worry or anything other than love. Love is what the heart is for. With every beat there is only love within the heart. The mind would like us to “think” differently. The mind tells us to hold back when the heart says be free to love. The mind says fear is real but the heart says I love you still. This woman who thought she had a foolish heart, realized that it has always been the mind that was foolish. The heart is what it has always been and will always be… pure, unfiltered love. Just because love was given but not returned does not mean it wasn’t real.

My heart is unchanged by an unfortunate past, it still continues to love. I love more today than I have ever loved before. The past has not weaken my spirit, but made it stronger. There is a fairy tale still waiting to be written. It’s not about the knight on the white horse, about being rescued, about the castle or the ball or anything else the common fairy tale might seem. It’s about the dance of life between two people in the same agreement with their souls. Two people who compliment each other is such a way that there is balance and love that simply never ends. Two people unafraid to truly love each other and give of themselves without holding back and without condition. That is my fairy tale and I believe in it with all of my heart.

Now, I’m just going to sit here with my mouse friends next to this pumpkin and see what happens next 😉

A Letter to My Heart

Dear Heart,

I know it has been a long and tiring road for both of us, but hang in there, we are finally mending and better times are near. It has taken a lot of trial and error and you have never let me down. Time and time again you take all that you can take and continue to give all that you have. Many have come with lies and deceit, making promises they were never intending to keep. Still, you continue to love. Every time I have fallen, you have been there to pick me back up. When I thought I couldn’t, you told me that I could. When no one else loved me, it was you that reminded me that I was love. I am so sorry that I have been unable to deliver the kind of everlasting love that you give, but know that I won’t give up until I do. Your patience is beyond compare. Your trust is unfailing. Your strength is something few will ever be able to comprehend. No matter how beaten and abused, you remain the loving light that refuses to douse it’s flame. In fact, on our worst days is when I noticed your light the brightest. Pushing your rays of hope and love through the darkest of moments, you have brought me through those times when all I wanted to do was give up. I have faith that there is a love out there somewhere in this world that matches our own. Until we find that love, I promise to protect you from those who wish to do us more harm and promise that I’ll not give up the search til the universe takes away my last breath. You are worth all the love I can find to give.

Yours truly,
Holly
xoxo

Fairytales

Life is a fairytale. No fairytale begins on a good note. Tragedy, sadness and despair is how they usually begin but the magic is in making your way past all those obstacles to finally find yourself living the “Happily Ever After”. We each hold the pen to our own stories, but many forget that. I have forgotten that particular statement myself many times over. Life happens, we get caught up in the survival of it all, but at the end of the day, we do have choices although they may be hidden from us. We have the power to  change our story at any moment, don’t forget that. I’m doing my best to remind myself as well of the same thing. We cannot go back and erase what has already happened but we do have control over what hasn’t. Some things will not be foreseen and we may have to add some extra pages here and there til we can work around obstacles that pop up… but how you handle those obstacles is completely within your own writing of your story.

It won’t always be the ideal castles and dreams but it will be YOUR castles and dreams.


Many Blessings,
