Moving Forward

"Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible."

~ Viktor Frankl from Man's Search for Meaning


Learn to let go and move forward. The past is the past, the future is yet to come, the moment we live in is right now. The only way to get over anxieties, fears, and bad memories is to be present in today. Know who you are when you're doing what you're doing. Be authentic and true to your own spirit and soul. Avoid the road blocks and detour around them with ease. A happy soul is one that is present in mind and focused on constantly moving forward.



Lean On by Major Lazer 



When focusing on moving forward and avoiding road blocks, quite often the correct vision or set of events for a life course is easier to follow than expected. 


Energy frequencies or vibrations.  I girl I once knew on the west coast reminded me of the concept of energy frequencies or vibrations.  It reminded me of the science of sound waves and how they are received by the ear drum, which sound waves are audible and which ones are not.  Dogs hear a different frequency than we do. 


As mentioned in the post I made in the fall of 2016, “Sometimes when you are thinking about the future, ideas of what can happen will float into mind, giving the possibility of multiple futures.  Usually the right idea of what's to come will flow to you like magnets attracting to each other in a line.”  If you stay with the same vision in mind- the same energy frequency- following the magnetic attraction of you’re the moment before


I’ve come to realize that much of our ability to move forward from bad events, times in our life, people we’ve met, experiences comes from our ability to choose life.  Much like the choose your own adventure novels I mentioned in the post from 2016

Reflection Edited

It's a day of reflection.  Waking up is hard to do.  It's not that I wanted to stay in the same place for years, but complacency is something that happens way too easily. Almost like an addiction.  A smoker has a routine of smoking- whether it be smoke in the morning, after breakfast, on the car ride home from work.  Complacency can affect a person the same way.  

I've found a great video on YouTube for yoga.  It's called Yoga Class with Affirmations for the Development of Mental Powers- or as I like to call it- Mental Clarity.  A focused mind is a strong mind.

I practiced this video for quite a while, more to create a balance in my body.


Sitting here drinking coffee at 530 in the morning. I woke up around 4am today. Stayed in bed for a while. I've been staying with my mom for the past month or so.  The guy I was with (for 7 years) and I broke up about a month ago.  Things hadn't been the greatest for a while, I probably should have moved out sooner- such is life.  While it's possible to see the past, it's not overly possible to actually go back in time and change the easy things went.  Moving forward is the only way to go.  I've been having these really bizarre dreams- maybe I shouldn't call them dreams.  Every so often my body will ache or have a ghost touch in a very specific location.  I tried to ignore them- ignoring is not a good thing to do.  To be honest they kind of scared me at first.  They often bring back really vivid memories of things I don't necessarily need to remember.  And then one day I decided not to be scared.  I went with the memories, listened to the message they were trying to tell me, and accepted the message with a.. 'Huh that's kind of interesting. I will be sure not to let that happen again'.  Not only did I start listening to exactly what these ghost feelings had to remind me of, I  remembered how I used to face the things that scared me the most.  Being afraid of the past isn't something I want to do.  Nor do I want to be afraid of the future.  Being in this moment is really the only way to live.  Staying active really helps, reading, writing, focusing on doing rather than quiet contemplation.

The Pretenders- Love Colours

A Little Poem

In quiet contemplation
I sit and wonder
Is this the reality
I've fallen into? 

Days become weeks
Weeks become months
Hours pass like fall leaves

Are hopes and dreams
Only a vision?
Do visions only become reality?
I often feel that there is a right path to follow.  An open existence is one that needs to be carefully navigated. In a world where there are infinite possibilities, when you comes to a fork in the road, is it possible to pick more than one existence at once? 

Sometimes when you are thinking about the future, ideas of what can happen will float into mind, giving the possibility of multiple futures.  Usually the right idea of what's to come will flow to you like magnets attracting to each other in a line.  

Sometimes- and quite often- the path chosen- or paths chosen- will lead to the same end result. 
When I was a small child I used to write like this all the time.  My favourite books to read were the choose your own adventure books.  I loved using this old typewriter I had, although editing wasn't the easiest.  I stopped writing when I was entering puberty, I think I got a little boy crazy- like most girls.  I would write down poems, ideas, and thoughts that I had- and kept most of them- until recently.  From what I remember, most of what I wrote about was life and death, energy, incarnation, and just general thoughts and ideas.  I, unfortunately (or fortunately) threw them all out.  Since I've moved in with my mother they have been coming back to me- but in a more adult mindset, with a better set of linguistics attached.  It's like rediscovering who I am and was my whole life.  My mother had always told me not to write down anything I didn't was other people to read.  Although I am a very private person, I sometimes need to write, and sometimes these ideas can be shared, with the right people, at the right time.  
Bjork - Hyperballad 

I started listening to Bjork in high school- this song somehow makes me feel safe.
