    Lessons I learned from being a widow.

    - Stop being offended. As Don Miguel Ruiz says, do not take anything personally. What others say or do is a projection of their own reality. Often people consciously say what their subconscious is thinking. - Let go of the need to win. Giving up doesn't always mean you're weak...

    "What people think of you is none of your

    business" Be true to yourself. People who place judgement on others will find reasons to dislike you regardless if you are trying to please them or not. Life is much more fun when you dance to the beat of your own drummer and could care less who is watching. :)

    Sitting in the cage Weary

    and worn Shackled and torn The wild beautiful free spirit Broke free from her captors That wished to tame and claim her Ripping the bonds of all their desires That bound her And stifled her She soared free Into blissful freedom Away off into the blue yonder..

    Set Yourself Free

    "Going to Church"Recently,

    I visited a small church in hopes of gaining a church home. From the pulpit, the pastor spoke of how women should keep the preaching to the men. He ranted how a woman should obey her husband, but wag her finger in the privacy of their home. My brow raised to his "dance on the...

    for a reason and I'm willing to take total advantage. I can't stand being held down by not only unjust laws but unspoken rules that we all have to follow. The rules of society. I choose and always have chosen to do my own thing. I could care less what people think since people...

    To grow we have to push through the dirt.

    And some people don't want you to grow because it reminds them that they are small. But don't let small people hold you back from experiencing the sun.

    I don't think being a free spirit has to

    necessarily mean that one is frivolous and care-free with no regard to appropriateness. I think it varies from person to person but for me in translates to that I don't feel it dire that I conform each part of myself anymore to appease others by sacrificing my truth for theirs...

    Maybe this is why school was a difficult place

    for me, I felt enclosed and imprisoned. And if someone tries to control me in a relationship, I have to break free and will use all my strength to do so; conversely I can end up feeling enslaved and unable to think anymore, unable to function independently. But where I can't be...

    I am a free spirit engaged in human society,

    who feels trapped sometimes. I want to break free and fly away. I can't stand conformity. I don't recognize the authority of people and institutions. I am a quiet rebel, aware that I am also a spirit. A free spirit.

    Being a free spirit is life's key to self worth,

    I do not conform to the molds

    "She was never crazy.

    She just didn't let her heart settle in a cage. She was born wild, and sometimes we need people like her. For it's the horrors in her heart that cause the flames in ours. And she was always willing to burn for everything she ever loved." RM Drake
