Some things you should know..

As I open myself up to being available to others as a Life Coach, I feel it is important that I share with you some details about myself... because.. how can one really know that I will understand what they are going through if they know nothing about what I have been through myself?

I have not always been the bright, cheerful, & positive person I am today- If you had met me back in 2008 or before, you would have found a woman who was barely even a shadow of herself.. empty.. sad.. lost.. & utterly alone.. but who hide it so well that no one else ever even knew- I once honestly & completely, whole-heartedly believed that I never should have been born & was nothing but an unloved burden upon the whole world & those who knew me.. :'( I fit in with The Semi-Colon Project perfectly-

Hard to believe right? 

Well, I assure you.. it is true- I would never lie about something as heart-rending as this. The only thing I had going for me was my stubbornness & my unrelenting tenacity to prove everyone else wrong- No one ever believed in me before. Not even my own family. Not even myself! Ironic, right!? Stubborn as hell, yet I hardly even believed in myself at all. I eventually realized in college that I had a problem & that I probably needed some serious help, but I believed & feared that the docs would simply put me on drugs and wave me on; that they'd not listen nor care at all about me as a person.. So I never sought help and was determined to face my problems on my own-

I grew up with no one at all that I could lean on, no one who would help me, no one who showed me that they cared, & no one that I felt I could truly trust to be there when I needed them most.. So I was forced to learn how to stand on my own & brave the storms of life with my own strength & tenacity. It was not the least bit easy.. & there came a time when I was perilously close to giving up & calling it quits. One more bad storm & I'd have walked off the top of my dorm room building.. literally... just as another student had done a few years prior that I had all but witnessed in person as she had lived in my very same dorm..

It was on Feb 23rd, 2010 that I found my salvation- :) You see.. I knew that what I felt was wrong & that it wasn't how things were meant to be, so I desperately searched high & low for years for something.. ANYTHING!! ..that would give me just a touch bit more hope to make it through another day. Music was my greatest source of hope & helped me cope through so much heartache. Thus, I was constantly searching for new songs, new lyrics that would fill me with a sense of hope & peace, to help me cry when I knew I needed to, to help me vent when my anger was boiling over, & to help me to believe in the world & myself again. It was during one of these searching moments that I found my ultimate salvation~

It was completely random how it happened too! I was actually searching for Beyonce's song Halo, when a completely different song popped up labelled "Why did I fall in love with you? (Beyonce Halo Knock-off) by Tohoshinki"... I was floored...! I thought to myself.. "Tohoshinki? That's Japanese! I LOVE J-pop!", so I clicked on it out of curiosity. Immediately it filled me with joy & love, along with a sense of sadness & longing as it was a song about unrequited love, so I looked up the song on YouTube with English subs to have a better understanding of the lyrics.. & I laughed! Truly laughed! For the first time in what seemed like forever as I saw that Tohoshinki was literally an Asian version of The Backstreet Boys, my favorite teenage dream band when I was a teen. ^_^

Excited by my newfound interest, I looked up more of their music and the very next song I listened to was their song "Love in the Ice"........... & that was when my whole life changed.......... <3

The lyrics to that song were words I had been waiting my whole entire life to hear... Just a few lines into the song & I was bawling my eyes out.. The deep, penetrating, & cleansing kind of cry that I had be unable to accomplish on my own.. Even to this day, even in this very moment as I type, I still well up in fresh tears as I remember & relive that moment.... For 20 whole minutes I wept & wept until I could cry no longer.. and when I once again raised my head up from the table where I sat..? It was as if the entire world had changed in that one short instant-

All the pain, the sadness, the darkness, the chains & bars which had kept me imprisoned in my own personal hell..... it was all.. gone... Just... GONE! POOF! NADA! The world was suddenly bright, warm, welcoming, & so full of love! Both inside & out, my entire world had done a complete 180 degree turn. I became filled with light, hope, positivity, & passion! :D My self-confidence & self-belief soared to such great heights that I have yet to ever come down from the clouds~ & now here I am... just 6 years later~ Chasing my dreams & living the life I always knew was what I should be living! ^_^ But it wasn't really the song that saved me...

Over these past few years, I have come to realize that the song was really just that perfect trigger that I had needed in order to fire the already fully-loaded & bursting to the brim canon of my very own heart & soul. I had already packed my heart, mind, & soul so full of all the various thoughts & things I had needed in order to change myself & my life all those previous years beforehand when I had refused to give up... I had only been missing the trigger I had needed to fire it all off! Well- I can tell you... I am so very glad I found it. I never once expected to find it in the form of a song, but I did... & each person's trigger is different-

Be you a soul that merely needs help & advice to help you puzzle your way through accomplishing dreams you have already set in motion... Or someone who desperately needs another kindred spirit to have your back & give you that extra boost to climb up out of your own darkness... I've got your six- :)

All you need do is ask it~

Are you 'The One' for me?

This is a special post-- ;)
 
The one thing I have wanted most... has been the hardest thing for me to find..
 
& it still eludes me to this day............... & that is.. True Love~
 
It’s not for a lack of trying, for I’ve dated several different guys & have had many who have expressed interest in me. However, none of them felt “right”.. I’m not looking for Mr. Perfect- I’m simply looking for Mr. Just-Right-For-Me, who sees me as his Ms. Just-Right-For-Him. I’m searching for a feeling. A feeling in my heart that tells me, ‘Yes- He’s the one- Absolutely no doubt about it’. I’ve yet to find it.. :( & I’m tired of being alone...
 
So this is a shout out! I’m putting myself out there as ‘Available & Looking’~
 
If you are searching for a woman who is both sides of the Yin & Yang, who works hard, is building her very own life of freedom & adventure, wishes to sail around the world & help people, who longs to be a mother & have a child as soon as possible, who is a little eccentric, a bit of a dreamer, & incredibly unique, who loves Pixar & Dream Works, loves science & fantasy in equal measure, & loves trying new things, a woman who knows what she wants in life & goes after it, who has her own friends & wants you to have yours, who wishes to share in your life as much as you wish to share in hers, who is smart, dedicated, determined, creative, & cunning, who is passionate about everything she loves & does, who can be both warm & inviting while also knowing when to stand her ground, a woman who can do it all on her own, but who still wants you around.. then why not give me a try?
 
I warn you thou- I am a Tiger in every sense of the word. If I don’t like something, I will let you know it. If you don’t respect my feelings or me, I will slam the door in your face so fast you won’t know what happened. I do not tolerate disrespect, abuse, nor any kind of maliciousness or attempt at coercion. I can tell if you’re serious or ‘just kidding’. I am no fool- I trust my gut instincts & if you’re not ‘The One’, you are NOT ‘The One’- It is as simple as that. If I say so, then just be glad that you don’t have to waste anymore time nor effort on my account. Everyone has someone who is best for them & all I wish is for you & I to find them, whether it’s each other or someone else. If I feel you may be the one for me, I will let you know it & wish to get to know you further. Take caution thou- No matter how long we have been talking & getting to know each other, if I find something about you that makes me recoil in any kind of negative way, I will let you know it in an instant.
 
I am a hard person to get to know or get close to as I hardly ever trust anyone. I never let anyone get close to me unless I feel I can trust them, then I only let them in in small increments. If you are a serious Gentleman who is sick of all the games, who wants a serious woman who is honest & real in every way, if you take care of yourself, eat right, work out, & are looking to live a self-sufficient lifestyle, if you have dreams that also include sailing the world &/or having adventures, if you enjoy the nerd talk, geek talk, & serious contemplation of the universe, if you’d rather stay in & watch a movie or play D&D or even just read a book than go out & ‘party’ most nights, but sometimes want to go out & dance when the mood strikes, if you are open to new possibilities, wish to be a father, want to have a woman who is loving & passionate, & wish to share in life’s adventures together with a woman who is fiery, fierce, & a total gypsy... then maybe I’m the one you’re looking for-
 
I will NOT ‘hook-up’! I can’t stand a boy who is immature & lacks class- I refuse to be anyone’s ‘play-thing’- Only approach me if you are 100% serious about getting to know me ONLY!! I am looking for a man who wishes to be my best & truest friend- If you have no intentions of being my friend, then you’ve no place in my love life. I am looking for a life partner, not just some fling.. & ‘Life Partner’ to me doesn’t necessarily mean that we are always together & do everything together. It simply means we share in life’s adventures together, whether we are standing side-by-side or we’re oceans apart. I want my man to have his own dreams & aspirations, his own friends, & the determination, dedication, & intellect to see things through on his own; thou I will gladly help you out if asked. I want a man who wishes to be the father of my future child or children. If I haven’t found ‘The One’ by my 34th birthday in October 2018, then I am taking parental matters into my own hands & having a baby on my own with the help of an anonymous donor & doctors. This is how serious I am about my wish to be a mother. If you don’t like it, then you’ve no place in my love life either-
 
Be you a lonely mountain man, a wandering sailor, an honorable soldier, a bush man, a farmer, or even a man lost in a lab or stuck behind a computer.. if you are looking for a life-long partner who is both friend & lover, who yearns for a relationship built on honesty & trust, who wishes to change the world & fill it with love, dreams, & kindness.. then send me a message request & we’ll try getting to know each other~ :)

Worries are now gone! ^_^

I just heard back from the doc, all my other health worries are now gone! My only concern now is my heart- I have lived with this condition my whole life, so I think I can manage even without the 'much needed' medication that the doc says I should take. Who wants to take meds that artificially RAISES their blood pressure!? ESP when there are plenty of yummy foods & spices that do the very same thing naturally! I've opted for the natural route~ ;) I've always preferred natural methods over pharmaceutical drugs, so why change now? I'm 31 & I look 21, so I must be doing something right, eh! ^_^

Working hard now to get to Hawaii- It shant be long now! By Thanksgiving this year I shall be giving thanks to the heavens for my wonderful new home on the Big Island~ I'm working on designing my very own ultra-mini lightweight hobbit home trailer & will probably go with my latest K.I.S.S. Concept as I need to build it rather quickly while also building it to last with little funds. It's a darn good thing I'm a Jac-of-all-trades~ :3 Still researching building designs & DIY instructions online though to make sure I have considered everything.

Hey you! :)

Long time, no post! :P

I've been super busy.. & sick! >_< But I'm slowly feeling better now. :) Been trying to get the hell out of here as soon as possible... but it seems that the world is conspiring against me & wants me to stay where I am until I've lived out the remainder of my lease here in Dunnellon, Fl.. :/ Oh well~ Hawaii's not going anywhere! I'll get there sooner than I think~ ;) My lease is up on Halloween, so I'm moving to Hawaii immediately afterwards- ^_^ I'm so totally excited! :D lol! This summer may be a rough one with the heat & humidity, but I look forward to it being my LAST here in Florida! <3

I've been working out multiple designs & concepts for my ultra-mini, ultra-lite hobbit home trailer that I wish to build and have gotten to the point of going with something simple. I call it my K.I.S.S. concept and it is so streamlined & simple that I can have the outer shell built within a single day if I wish. I have come to realize that I needed to do this in order to get myself a decent shelter asap. I can't afford to be camping out on my property. I can build my trailer shell on cement bricks at first until the welder is done building my custom trailer frame, then I can simply slide my home onto the frame after it's done. This will give me a month to find a car in which to tow my trailer to the DMV to have it registered. Or I can just rent a car to do so~

I wish to keep my motorcycle lifestyle- I'll only use the car when moving my home. I'm even considering an electric bike instead of a motorcycle to practically eliminate my carbon footprint! :) They have one now that goes 40 mph. I could install a solar panel on the back to help keep the battery charged at all times so I can use it any time I wish. I could build a tiny tow-trailer for the bike to carry groceries back to my house. I want a very simple, self-sufficient lifestyle~

More details to come! Stay tuned~ ;)

Long time, no post..

I know I haven't posted in a while & I apologize for that. I had a lot going on and was far too distracted to even think of this blog at the time, so I am posting now to let everyone get caught up on what's been going on~

I am now an official property owner with a piece of property on the main island of Hawaii~ :) She's not much, but 1 acre of agricultural land in a small, developing community of like-minded individuals is well worth the sacrifice I made in purchasing it. I can't wait to move there! :D As of right now, it looks like I'll be moving in the first few days of November as my current rental lease isn't up until October 31st. I want to make sure I get my security deposit back as I will need that money to get re-established over there. I will be saving up everything I can until then. ;)

I now have a business partner who is still debating on whether or not she wishes to make that leap to join me. She's a total sweetheart & I'm not letting go of her, no matter what she decides. Even if that means I have to kidnap her & pack her in my suitcase in order to take her to Hawaii with me, I shall! XD LOL! Not really.. but I am sorely tempted to do so, since she is so sweet & we get along so well. :3 Her name is Abbey, but she's considering going by her middle name of Faith instead, which I think suits her perfectly! I can't wait to see what she & I come up with for our business! :D

I have even made some progress spiritually~ :) I have begun to reopen the doors I had once closed out of fear due to all the spiritual attacks I had once had to endure. I have learned that each person has many soulmates not just one & that each soulmate has a different spot to fill in our heart. Just because one person is your soulmate, doesn't always make them the perfect partner for your love life. You are soulmates because you are two pieces cut from the same cloth and you are meant to help nurture each other's growth & help one another. 

There are still some journeys and pilgrimages I wish to make.. I wish to get closer to nature & try to remember the ancient wisdom which I have forgotten. I wish to remember the old language which had once been given to us at the dawn of men & women. I have learned of the distinction between people & humans, learning which ones I can speak to on a spiritual level & which ones not to. The People understand me & accept the truths that I know to be my own, they even tend to know more about me than I do.. so I intend to spend more time with them than with those I consider to be simply human for the time being. 

I have always been a fence-sitter.. not quite sure as to which world I fit best in.. However, now I understand my purpose as well as why I've always sat on the fence since the beginning. I walk the line between The People & Humans~ I am a gateway of understanding between the two. Some may call me crazy or a hippie or give me some other label, but that matters not to me. I am here to act as a gateway to a greater understanding & only those who are ready for such knowledge will be open & ready to hear what wisdom I have to offer them. I no longer doubt myself or my gifts. I know how to read others & can gain a far deeper understanding of them & their situation than many people dare to admit. I am grateful to those few who have been honest & have let me know that what I have sensed in them was true. For not only has such knowledge helped me to accept my gifts as truth, but it has also helped them to open up & understand themselves better as well. That in & of itself is a wonderful thing as it helps them to become closer to the truth within themselves~

I have learned that others can only meet me as deeply as they have met themselves. They can only connect with others as deeply as they have connected with themselves. Anyone who only has a shallow understanding of themselves can only meet others with just that same shallow connection. I do not use the term shallow to mean anything negative, for it is simply a description of the depth of the connection they have made. The deeper one is able to connect with themselves, the deeper they are able to connect with others~ It is as simple as that. If one wishes to form deeper connections with others, they must first form a deeper connection with themselves. Thus, I have decided to incorporate such a doorway into my Dream Ship proprietorship.

Aside from being the captain & leader of my crew, my part in Dream Ship will be that of an upcycle artist, where I create new & beautiful things from that which is old & worn, thus no longer used. The other part I shall fill will be that of a spiritual advisor. People will be welcome to come speak with me about all manner of things & I will be there to listen & assist them in finding the answers which they seek. The answers that are within their own hearts, not the answers within my own. Just as I have learned from the movie Kung Fu Panda 3.. It is not my job to make others into someone just like me- It is better instead to help others make themselves into a better version of themselves, to help them become whom they were always meant to be. That is now a great part of me~ I wish to help guide others into becoming the absolute best THEM that they can be. :)

These are the things that I have come to realize lately.. & I leave them to you to interpret as you will freely~

O.o On 2nd thought-

Maybe opening up an art studio/cafe isn't what I want- I want to help people, not run a tiresome business! >_< So I have a better idea~ :)

I'll open up my home to people & be a free dream counselor! :D Or maybe I should say mentor? Advisor? I don't know- I'm just not real fond of the word counselor.. :P I can still do a cafe setting- I'll just set it up out in my own yard! I'll work with people by appointment, be it one on one or group appointments. I can still serve tea, coffee, cakes, & cookies & I won't have to worry about any stupid BS regulations or red tape! Each person would be my guest & I a hostess in my own home so none of that BS would apply- Plus, I would be doing it for free~ :D So I could help more people & not have to worry about taxation, business registration, nor any kind of regulations! ^_^

I like this a whole lot better! I could do this in my free time & not have to worry about anything. If people feel compelled to pay me in some way for my time or the tea, I will simply ask them to donate some tea, coffee, or snacks of their own choosing for future visits or visitors~ :) It will be at my home on my 1/2 acre farm, so I could serve fresh fruits to visitors as well if I have any ready for harvest. Yes! I like the idea of being a free dream counselor/mentor/advisor much better instead of an actual business woman! ^_^

As for my arts & crafts? I will figure out how I wish to handle the selling of that separately- :3

DREAMS~

They continually evolve as life goes on~ :)

Do not be afraid to alter your dreams as you move forward in life as life is a dance between what you want most & what you fear most. Time & again I have set forth upon a specific path and found that along the way life would throw in roadblocks, speed bumps, & blind 90 degree turns that I have been forced to navigate or find my way around. I no longer fight them as each has brought forth a new realization & understanding of both myself & the world around me. Thus, my dreams keep evolving~

The latest evolution has come with my realization that I still wish to be my very own business owner. I still wish for my very own art studio, but I also yearn to have my very own cafe where people can come in and relax, speak with me about their dreams, & maybe even find the answers that they seek for the questions in their heads & hearts. I have always been a dreamer & it has come to attention that my purpose in life is to help mentor others in their dreams, help them to make them come true, & help them to believe in themselves so that they can make their dreams a reality. 

Thus, when I move to Hawaii, I will eventually open up my very own art studio & cafe called the Dream Cafe & Studio~ :) It will be a place where people can seek out advice & information on how to achieve their dreams through myself & the free internet access I shall provide there. They could come in & relax, shop through my handmade crafts, or even just enjoy a nice cup of tea or coffee. There will be no rushing, no fast food, no disposable cups to take the tea or coffee on the go- It will be a place for people to come in, slow down, & relax. If people wish to bring in their own mugs to take their beverage to go, they may~ However, I refuse to have any cups, plates, or utensils that are for one time use which will then be thrown out. No! All things will be washed and reused as they are supposed to be.

My goal in life is to help others realize their dreams & help make them come true, even if all I do is believe in them and offer them a kind word or two. :) I wish to fill this world with dreams, love, & positivity~ It is through living my own dreams that I will be able to make this come true. ^_^
