Our War

A losing war is one we have with ourselves


We fight our way through life and wonder why it’s not thriving.  Beliefs, habits, and customs which no longer serve us.  Yet, we push ahead with them hoping our lives will change.  Life doesn’t change, we do.  Acceptance and surrender.  Today is a new day to start again.  Sending blessings, gratitude, and joy.

Inspire Me: Raw by Sonia Iris Lozada

Is an exquisite collection of poems from the actor, writer, and poet Sonia Iris Lozada that are beautiful and inspiring. Using her knowledge of events that shaped her life.  She shows others how having courage and faith can motivate them to move on with their lives, avoiding the negativity that often keeps us bound to the same place.


Good or Bad?

Life’s perceptions.

What do we consider good or bad?  It depends on your perception of the situation.  When experiences have been “bad”, is it a change we don’t accept?  How about the “Good”?  Is it actually good?  Maybe?  Sometimes we feel the circumstance is good only to be proven incorrect down the line.  So, what is considered good or bad?  Life isn’t either, rather a perception of what is.  I’ve learned after many challenging aspects of life, there’s no good or bad,  just is.  How I choose to react is my truth and no one else’s.   It’s been a lengthy self-analytical journey and maybe we can get to self-understanding.  

Sometimes, wondering if the journey will ease up.  Learning to accept experiences as another step in our evolution.  Yet, we ask if it will be good or bad for those involved.  If we can be true to ourselves even in silence, it seems like life takes care of itself.  To be in the moment, not dwelling on the past and thinking about the future; just accepting this moment when we can be meditative in finding our soul’s desire.

Finding the moments in our lives when happiness is in our favor, is due to our own value and acceptance.

Many blessings for a great day.

Video Edit


I’ve been working on a new poetry video “TRAIN” for my YouTube site and the more I work on it the worst it looks.  Going back to simplicity which is what I do best.  It’ll be up soon.  Thank you to all in advance for your patience.

Inspire Me: Raw 2 Coming soon

Waiting for the editor’s notes before making my final revisions.  In the meantime,  I’ve been setting up The Clash book.  I’ll keep you posted and I’ve also added another poem Cocoon.
