Away But Always There...

Good day babes,

Below you'll find one of my favorite poems by William Ernest Henley.  The reason I chose this particular poem is because it reflects my thoughts and feelings during this particular time in my life perfectly! I have not been around much these past weeks due to strides I've been making in my professional & personal life, all of the details will eventually be in my book, of course, so do not think for one minute that I've forgotten my purpose with you!  I WILL BE BACK for these are blessed times and when I come back believe me it will definitely be under the most awesome of circumstances.  So love each other while I'm gone, because I love you!

Love & Blessings,

Invictus

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.


William Ernest Henley

Perspective

So today I really wasn't planning on blogging anything because I honestly didn't think I had anything to say... until now.  Sometimes I feel like things suck! I know I'm always giving out positive messages, but I must admit, I don't feel like that all the time.  Now grant it, 8 out of 10 times I do feel good about the way things are flowing but today I was not feeling it.  I stand back and look at my present situation and there are tons out there to feel great about, but at times I feel lonely and really unsure of my future... now one mans unsure future is another mans opportunity of a lifetime.  Well I guess that was the point of this post... it's all about perspective.

Love & Blessings,

Right Now Love.

I’m so in love with my right now. 
I know that’s hard to really understand but right now is all I got.  
I love waking up and having big dreams but no rules
Not having a rhyme or reason for loving who I love
but just to love. 
I’m so in love with my right now.
I'm in love with waking up and breathing… deep.
I'm so in love with where I am
A soul that feels it’s way through life
Not enslaved to an ideal of what perfect life is.
Because perfection has already been here
All of us born perfect and without flaw
All born without error
We are the heart…we feel with heart… 
Heart is where God resides.
I’m so in love with my right now
Letting go of the "Once Upon A Time"
Letting go of the future… 
Letting go of wanting more… 
The separating thoughts of imperfection…
Letting go of fixing what need not be fixed...
Which once was me.
I am so in love with the right now.
Everything about right now is ideal.
Right now is all we have 
For the future is not promised
... and the past is no more.
I'm so love with my right now...
Are you?


Love & Blessings,
Buttaflibabee
