"Light in the Dark"
Sometimes there must be an end to begin something #new .
You have to let go, to make space for new things, new friendships, new possibilities. *
Let go of your layers, that do not belong to you. Step out of it.
Step out of it like out of old clothing.
Clothes which are too tight to wear.
Which have holes in it and are outworn.
It is spring baby! Now is the time for it!
Be open. Be vulnerable. Be you.
I looked behind all these layers. First, I thought I had something to hide.
First, I was afraid of the dark woman inside of me. But it was just me, whom I detected in the inside.
The pure innocent me. My true self. I saw #beauty !
Welcome the not knowing. The endless possibilities of the new.
The infinite space of opportunities and ways.
I took the long road into the darkness, stepped down step by step, the long staircase of hard, solid stone. I lay down all my jewellery, my belongings. Yes, I looked behind my layers, opened door by door to reach my core in the search of the hidden woman.
Allow yourself to bloom. Open your heart like a flower. A dark red rose with thousand of pedals.
Don't try too hard. Be gentle to yourself, while looking behind each sheet.
Beyond the tags, the armor, the right and the wrong.
Beyond the how should have beens.
My dark goddess is not afraid of #death . And at the same time not afraid when a new idea is born. Why? Because she is life itself. She lives in the moment. Right now.*
She is neither good, nor evil. She is just a woman living in the underworld.
I was surprised when I saw her for the first time. She is the light in the dark. Why was I afraid at all?!
You are born anew everyday. Just let yourself be!
Shine baby shine. And allow others to follow. *
Dear @wordyaam, thank you for #inspiring me again. And big thank you @ruddhilton for your insightful comments!
This poem is now a slightly longer version about the topic #layers . Sometimes I think, shorter is better, it allows your own phantasy and imagination more room, and sometimes it is good to have more explaining interpretation.
@wordyaam I would be happy, if you would also write about this topic. But it is open to all 💕
"When I reflect upon castles I think of us humans;I think of mysteries, tales of woe, scandalous sagas and impossible love stories .I wonder who had walked inside its vast glorious rooms, what they looked like, how they talked and walked but I also think of human greed .Those infinite amount of rooms and those vast gardens were once exclusive to the privileged few; But it seems the many always want to claim what the few built; like how the ocean claims back the mountain; slowly,relentlessly and persistently; but as the ocean reclaims the mountain rock by rock the earth build yet another one in angry eruption .Why can't these patterns end ? Why are they not in equilibrium ? Or perhaps they are?! Who is wrong and who is right ? The mountain that builds or the ocean that reclaims ? I can't seem to know or decide as we seem to reclaim old castles and replace them with Parliament buildings ! Still,as I stood there ,I mainly thought of myself and how I would hate to live in such a grand place that would end up being nothing more than an empty prison as I can't put it in my backpack ."~@h.t.alfaiadh ❤
This was what I felt while roaming over those sarayas .What I felt back then was astonishment but at the same time exhaustion .I felt weird (not the good weird) as if that place was too much on my soul to process .Never was I able to put what I felt into words like this lady perfectly did ✨ it was simply well put together and couldn't help but share .
@h.t.alfaiadh keep up the good work 🌌❤
I swear every day is leg day in this @thehammerchisel program! I love it though. Did you know when you're working your biggest muscle groups in your body, your burning the most calories. So you work your legs, hold your Core in tight, hold some weights while you do it so you're working your entire body, the more effective the workout will be 🙌🏼💪🏼
My challenge group is kicking off next week and people are ROCKING their fitness journeys with me.
Are you ready to get ready for summer with us?! 👙☀️ .
Message me! If you're not moving forward your going backwards. Move forward. Decide. Commit. Succeed 🤗
Gah! You guys, Narrate is so good! 🙌🏼🎥 I just got a little sneak peek at our project and all I can say is (my posture aside), I love it ... now, let's see what Lib and Jim say 🤔Stay tuned for more! 📷: @gracekbeck
Guerilla-soldiers are usually not allowed to raise children, but the parents of little Sara Manuela (2) decided to take the chance, as they have faith in the on-going peace process in Colombia.
Sara Manuela is currently growing up in the guerrilla-camp, El Diamante. Should the peace process fail, her parents are ready to hand her over to her grandmother.
Learn more about the peace negotiations in Colombia through the captivating photography at our inspiring exhibition, Hope over Fear.

What do you do when LIFE tries to squeeze the life out of you? If you live long enough, you'll see that life can be tough. You can experience a lot like deaths, diseases, financial instabilities, and many other things. But there are 3 things that can give us comfort and confidence in God:…
1. Knowing that we don't have to carry the cares of this world, but we can cast, not one or two or some, but ALL our cares upon Him (Jesus).…
2. God doesn't want us to worry about taking care of ourselves, but he lets us know in Matthew 6:25-34 through faith He can help us.
3. Most importantly, there's is joy because we know that our Redeemer lives and went to go prepare a place for us that is everlasting, because this life is temporary…
Please Tag 2 friends ✌🏽…

Self-love 🎀💝 It is so important to allow yourself to grow. How do we do this? By not finding comfort in the comfortable. And instead find comfort in the uncomfortable. By this I mean trying out new things, and being open to other ways of knowing and being; to not remain static. Only then can you welcome new becomings and new beginnings and thus truly exist in this world. To be put in a state of discomfort is to allow challenge and development for yourself. When you allow yourself to remain static you are essentially saying that you are unwilling to change and become anew. But self love is all about welcoming how dynamic you are as an individual. And acknowledging the importance of not only growing physically but mentally, emotionally and spiritually. To not just look in the mirror and immediately like what you see externally, but to really reflect on who you are allowing yourself to become internally and loving whomever that is. I believe self love begins with accepting this mindset of growth 🌿
Hello everybody! Sorry for the lack of post yesterday. As the semester is coming to a close it seems my professors have all created a secret plot to have everything due within the next two weeks but I'm working my way through it - taking it day by day! Hope you are all well. Take some time today for yourself 💕
