ALL IS WELL

Dear Readers, 

Sometimes life has a way of stopping us in our tracks helping us understand life on life’s terms, and to see the other picture behind the bigger picture. People are blinded by striving for professional success and clawing their way up the class and economic ladder, due to being dissatisfied with their current class status. We wish for more and do our best to keep up the JONESES, while theorizing that the grass is greener on the other side.

That Was Me. 

People have told me that I am a late bloomer my life played out in reverse.. I was a high school dropout, unwed teenage mother, and experienced years of working low paying jobs. It took time, but I found my way back on the right path to acquiring an education, where I discovered the love of English Literature. Victory you say, yes, and no, my story doesn’t end there. I have enjoyed years of academic success, but what spoiled my triumph was that I brought into the societal notion that I should fit myself into the idealized American Dream. This piece isn’t about how I achieved my American Dream, on the contrary, I did not achieve any dream because I was trying too hard to adjust to someone else’s Idea about how my life should play out. It almost RUINED me, I brought into the claim that “ one size fits all”. 

It was my pursuit of an inmate partnership  meaning to find Mr. right and to “ settle down” into a long term loving partnership. There is nothing wrong with wanting to be in a loving partnership, however, what I was doing was “ Settling” . I was literally looking for love in all the wrong faces. I confess that I viewed being alone as a disease, when I should have embraced my alone time as time to work on me ,and make the foundation of life stronger. I did not understand how to be with myself, and that I was in charge of my happiness, instead of relying on others to give me what I need to give to myself. I suffered years of abusive relationships and never truly found the person to show me genuine love, honesty, support my career goals, and my vision of becoming an author, and talk show host. A few years ago I was almost homeless because the man that I was engaged to asked me to leave his home immediately, because I refused to submit to him controlling my life. I struggled with  years of being emotionally and financially broken, confused and angry.  

I used to complain that my life wasn’t successful, I viewed my life as “ wasteful” , and then I read this quote by Susan Samarro, “ Nothing you’ve been through has been wasted”. Before entering the teaching profession, I spent 13 years as a well paid theater manager at a wonderful Performing Arts Center. There I witnessed operas’ page to stage, film festivals, and artist in residence programs, not to mention some famous movies that were filmed at my venue. In 2006, I took a final curtain bow and began my Masters program in Education while working as a floor supervisor at The Learning Resource Center. After completing my education I dove head first into my love of teaching Literature. Sounds like the perfect comeback story, oh yes it is. It took me to be sheltered in place during this coronavirus pandemic, that ALL IS WELL. While the world is in chaos, being sheltered in place has given me the time, space and peace that I have never known. The time to set up my new apartment room by room, lesson learned never give up my place to move in with a man. Second lesson, being home means spending less money, paying off bills, reviewing my finances and on the path to repairing my credit, and the savings is great.I am learning that I am at my best when I live alone, but currently, I have a roommate who temporarily went back home to her family. I cherish this down time. It makes good financial sense to have the support of a roommate, but moving forward I enjoy my own space. 

All is well because I know who I am, what I want and how to bring joy into my life. I enjoy coffee in bed, and sleeping late, cooking vegan meals, laying on the sofa watching movies, while  sipping wine and eating popcorn. I like the peace, quiet and space to create. I like being with me. I am not giving up on finding my life partner, but this is no longer at the top of my bucket list.  Today, I can truly say with confidence  ALL IS WELL. I am moving forward with the courage of a lioness, the sky is not the limit because I will never place limitations on what I can accomplish.

    ON ROYALTY

    ◇ Angry, Awesome, Aware Alice is The Queen of Diamonds; that’s why The Mad Hatter Admires HER!!! So Much…it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that Alice Drinks Her Tea at Tea Parties while #MeghanMarkle #MarkleDebacle #PrinceHarry #MeghanThrewTheTea #MeghanCharlatanDuchess #LindaCampbell #RoyalFamily This is Why Their is a Clear Distinction Between Common and Royal

    ◇ Girls THINK!!! that Boys just wanna Get Laid
    ◇ Boys THINK!!! this is The Only Way to Get Laid
    ◇ Ergo; there is No Active Listening Communication

    ON FATEFUL AND 3DLIFEPATHS

    ◇ – Diamond Hard – ◇

    …in The Context of Linear Time…there is:

    ♤ No Chance
    ♤ No Randomness
    ♤ No Coincidence

    …in The Context of Our Active Associations and Relationships…others ARE in Our 3DLives for:

    ♡ A Reason
    ♡ A Season
    ♡ A LifeTime

    …ergo Concentric Circles Beginning with The Inner Circle where Our Family ARE The Permanent Residents and a Dot that is SHE!!! Who Must Be Obeyed while I Ignore HER!!! until SHE!!! Gets HER!!! Head Straight plus ALL The Others that Come and Go in My 3DLife…there is Only:

    ON 3 STAGES OF 3DEVOLUTION IN A SINGLE 3DLIFETIME

    ◇ – Diamond Hard – ◇

    ♤ 1. 3D Conditioning and Integration; a Physical Maturation where We ARE ASleep, Ignorant, InAttentive as We Learn Our Physiological Sensations and ARE Psychologically, Physically Attacked and Abused by Our Parents and Other Primary CareGivers then Propagate Such Assaulting Behaviours from Generation-To-Generation then Die Grumpy, Bitter, Twisted and Old
    ♡ 2. 3D+ Active Listening; an Energetic Development and Growth Period where We ARE Awake, Aware, Alert and We Peacefully Defend OurSelves as We Separate from Integration and CHOOSE!!! a Peaceful Death or Ascend and Stay
    ◇ 3. 3D+4D+5DState; where We ARE Ascended and Decide to Stay in 3D Assisting Others Ascend by Setting Our Boundaries or Return to Pure Bliss by Giving Up Our Meat Sacks, aka Our Bodies, by Dying Voluntarily

    …it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that We Vacillate, Wander (or is that Wonder 🤔 ?) CONFUSED!!! Going Back and Forth, Amongst These Three Stages until, eventually, Reaching a Point of No Return as We Immerse WithOut ReIntegrating; as We Accept Immortality and Rude Health while Remaining Here To Help…

    nisi mortuus nec neque nolite vicit

    ON SWEARING AND CURSING

    ♤ ‘Intelligent’ People Claim that to Curse and Swear is a Sign of Ignorance; how Fucking Dumb is that EveryOne as Swear and Curse Words ARE The Most UnAmbiguous Forms of Our Emotional Communication Coming Straight from Our Honest Hearts…it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that those Fucking Hypocrites Swear and Curse Much More than Any of Us Do; so I CHOOSE!!! to Avoid Those Intellectually Idiotic DumbCunts and I Suggest YOU!!! Do The Same as I Do 🤣😅😆😁😄😏 Not Like They Do 🤨😡🤬

  2. Life is not a clear-cut, one-way road. It is a rambling trail through a messy wilderness full of switchbacks and twists. As long as you find your way in the end to the destination that is truly yours, you have succeeded. Your journey may not be over yet, but it sounds like you have found the right path. 💖
