Love is in the Air. Valentine’s day and all of that is just a money making affair in my opinion. Flowers, dinner, and gifts are nice but really do you only care once a year?I think we often place too much emphasis on specific occasions and days. Every day is a special occasion as long as you are alive. Today I read in one of my newsletters; Love is what remains after the butterflies have settled and the waves of lust have abated.
We often make love conditional by letting our egos get in the way. Some people can make relationships all about them and their needs. Love knows no selfishness or abuse. It builds you up it wraps and you in a cocoon of nurturing bliss. Nothing is perfect. Let’s face it relationships take compromise and work to keep the flame burning. It takes patience and tolerance to love and share your world with another and to accept them as they are; even when they get on your nerves or do that thing you don’t like and you want to choke them.
Love is a form of all-encompassing acceptance but that in no way means you should tolerate any mess. If it does not bring you peace then let it go. Often times letting go can be the ultimate expression of love. Let go of criticising, nitpicking, trying to change the other person. Let go of all the things that hold you back from being at peace with yourself. Not everyone loves the same way. Not everyone you meet is supposed to stay. The breakups and the makeups are all a part of the process. so what if you are single on valentines day? Why would that cause you distress? Are you seeking someone who will love you the right way? It all starts with you. Look in the mirror, single or taken know that you are special. The opinions of others do not and will never define your worth. Do something every day to remind yourself of the fabulous being that you are.
Share your essence and your light in an authentic way. Just be open to everything, to life itself. Work on your body, mind, and soul. Focus on your health. Don’t strive for perfection just do the best you can with every moment. Don’t feel loved? Never forget you are loved. We were designed to love. That source of loving energy is inside all of us. Just take a look at a rainbow, a sunset, the ocean and bask in their beauty. Be at peace with nature and you will never doubt the existence of love. Love does not merely exist within romantic boundaries. Anytime you are kind to another individual that is an act of love. I believe in simplicity. random acts of kindness to me are some of the best expressions of love A hug, a kiss, a love note or text just because. Even sharing your food now that is what love is all about. Nothing says I love you quite like a home cooked meal or baked goods. I like making cakes for those that are special to me. Nothing brings out the happy moments quite like cake.
I think at the end of the day most of us would prefer time or effort over things. So whenever you can do something mundane for the ones you love. Whether it’s helping them with chores or treating them to a massage or even sitting in silence (no phones ) and enjoying their company. Less is more. Just expressing gratitude for having someone in your life can make their day. Tell them they are awesome. show them you are their number one fan. Love begins with you. Know that you are and will always be enough. a divine piece of the universe. An undying energy, a wellspring of love. Tap into that love. Love is the air. Just do that damn thing and love yourself. Be the love you seek. Exude it. Let go of the expectations. Never give to get. You are worthy exactly as you are .
What are some of your favorite ways to express love for yourself and others? I love hearing from you. Love and Blessings Tachi
I was always a fan of trashy romance novels. I suppose all women need that little bit of imaginative spice in their lives; that heart pounding, bliss-inducing electricity these stories always describe. One part fiction, one part real life. My attempt at that dabbling with that romance novel vibe.
” What’s life without a little risk”? he whispered She begged him to go but as he drew nearer her heart slammed against her chest I hate everything about you she taunted He drew her nearer and she quivered as if she was haunted She lost all her reasoning as he gently sampled her lips Heat flooded her body as his kisses grew more intense Piercing and electric His touch was her kryptonite He persisted, she resisted He not only ravished her body but he lay claim to part of soulful essence that night.
Dark and Potent Bewitching Wisps of your essence will haunt my soul for centuries Hooked after just one touch Your sensuous kisses melt my cold heart Set fire to my life with just one tiny spark You push my imagination to the limits Thrill me, excite me Bring me to life A fireball of passion, you evoke the magical energy that I have kept buried deep inside Written By Tachira Wiltshire
As my end of the year seems to spiral into the abyss of failed plans and disappointments I look forward to tomorrow with hope.
Who needs a new year for a fresh start?
I am usually a very zen tachi , However this week I have been more like the hulk and wanted to just smash every shit. I swear my levels of crazy are off the charts. I could blame the full moon or mercury retrograde but I know my moods are all me.
Sometimes I forget the simple basic principles that I have striven to live by for the past year and a half. I plan to do an end of year meditation. Write down what I want to manifest. (Dreams always seem more realistic when you put them in writing ) Bathe myself in positivity or several shots of something strong and pretty and dig through the slight emotional and financial hot mess that was my 2017.
What is it about self-reflection that throws me into a tailspin. I am pretty fond of ignoring stuff till it spirals out of control and then I have an anxiety attack and bawl my eyes out about how crazy my life is. Very mature Tachira .very ……
Us Libras are some real drama queens. Thanks for putting up with me while I ramble. Last year I set a few goals, most I reached others well pfft there is always tomorrow. Says the devil that is procrastination. Really my year was not that bad. I was just really hoping to win the lottery and buy my own private island alas no such luck.
I plan to usher in the year on a positive note so I decided to share some of my plans with you to make a fresh start.
Recharge my energy
I like to kick off the new year off with a bit of a spiritual detox. My preferred way to do this is with a new beginnings meditation. Nothing quite like letting go of all the mental clutter and refreshing your thoughts in preparation for new ideas, dreams, and aspirations.
Declutter And Get Organized
Am I the only one who feels a few pounds lighter when I throw away old stuff or cut off toxic people? Something about having too much stuff; too many emails, unnecessary contacts just leaves me feeling drained. So I will start a social detox. Delete those old numbers, organize my inbox,throw away the old junk and make space for all the good that is coming my way.
Get My financials In Order
I think we all at some point have a sticky love-hate relationship with money. You may be like me a bit of a shopaholic( my friends say I need rehab and I said no, no, no). The thought of budgeting and saving always just seems like such a dry and boring topic. It, however, is a necessity if you are starting on a journey to financial freedom. No one wants to live paycheck to paycheck and feel deprived their entire life. I plan to examine :
How I can curb/cut my spending.
Find a savings plan and budget that I can actually stick to and that is effective
Create multiple streams of income (anything short of selling drugs )
Spend less than I make but damn the shoes are always so cute
Learn about investing
Learn Something New And Do More of What I Love
I absolutely love to delve into new topics and try new things. I will give some of these free online courses a try to aid me in learning a new skill. Most importantly,I will invest money into a course.I have always been dying to take up photography but I always complain some courses are too expensive. If I can spend on bags and shoes then paying for a course to discover what could possibly a new love isn’t too much to ask of myself. I get so caught up in the everyday drudgery I find it hard to make time to do simple things I love like yoga, coloring and generally playful stuff that makes my heart flutter. No more damn excuses. No time like the present.
Be My Own Best Friend
Do you remember that song line that goes It’s no surprise to me I am my own worst enemy ? How many times had you let the needs of others supersede your own, said yes when you meant no or tolerated less than stellar treatment from a loved one or co-worker? Kick Disrespect to the curb. It’s time to reclaim my peace of mind. Eat better, Worry less . Pamper my mind, body, and soul. I will look myself in the mirror and say I love you as I embrace every quirky awkward part of myself. Nip negative thinking in the bud by looking at the positive.
This year has been one crazy ride but guess what I would not do anything differently. Life isn’t about getting it right all the time or holding on to the past so tightly it crushes all your hopes for the future. Slam that door on whoever and whatever did you wrong .Celebrate what went right. Remember to be here now because now is really all you ever have. Whatever you do in this life makes sure it makes you happy and you can look back and smile. A life without love, happiness and joy will sure be one empty life. Isn’t being happy and spreading joy what life really is about?
What are your plans for New Year’s Eve and what do you want to manifest in 2018?Comment below I love hearing from you.
Love and Blessings and Happy New Year. Let’s slay together 🙂
She found solace in the hurt She wore the scars of past wounds like a badge of honor It’s so ironic how thoughts can do so much damage She convinced herself being alone was for the best Not willing to take the risk of another plaster being ripped from the walls of her soul Being crazy in love did not become her Commitment phobia or maybe it was paranoia He was getting closer to unlocking the chains around her heart Maybe the feelings would go away if she ignored them She feared to be vulnerable; it seems love always left her feeling broken, winded and knocked off her feet Her head said no but with every beat of her heart she longed to own him Yearning for somewhere to run and hide Old familiar pangs of wanting and longing to have someone by her side Should she risk the gamble? A timid, bruised and battered heart torn between the comfort of the past and the new story she was so afraid to write.
