    1. Ha! That’s the first thing I thought when I started reading. And it stays consistent, like V. My handwriting gets messier when my emotional intensity builds, kinda like my life.

    2. Yeah, just thinking that. You can read every word, unlike my handwriting! The plus side is if anyone ever found my journals they wouldn’t know what the heck I was writing about, so my secrets are safe. Ha

  1. Wow. I stand by so much, every word of what you expressed here my friend! The thing I hold onto most regarding what you stated the rest of society dictates is that I refuse, down right refuse to buy into it. What “they” want. What “they” consider success. All of it. Instead, I dance like nobody is watching me. Continue to do that V. I speak my mind even though my voice may shake. You always do that here with your posts. I feel my messy feelings and go against the grain of what the rest of society would have me believe is cool. You write here so eloquently that I feel like we are having a conversation in the same room.
    We are born sovereign beings and being free is our birth right as a good friend once told meπŸ˜‰ Keep being the free thinker you are V. I chose to walk my path leading with my heart first no matter how uncomfortable it may make others. You do the same while putting the middle finger upπŸ˜‰

    Amen and Hallelujah V……let’s keep being human.

      1. I appreciate that but these words are meant for you. I say what I feel into my friend. Even from afar and through your writing I have a good sense of who you are my dear. This share is classic you. Like a greatest hits and a peek inside your most intimate thoughts. I dig raw realness the mostπŸ˜‰
        I love to look back at my old journals tooπŸ˜‰

      1. Pretty sure that’s how I just stumbled upon this yesterday. I forgot where I left it and found it ten years later.

  3. Deep down, I think most people would agree which makes one wonder how everything got so screwed up. Maybe it’s partly because everyone is so busy all the time, trying to keep up that we’ve stopped thinking, really thinking, I mean. About what actually matters. Maybe being given this time to sit back and re-evaluate is a gift in a rather nasty container.

    1. Food for serious thought right here. When did everything get so screwed up? Also, the metaphor of this being a gift in a nasty container really strikes a chord. I guess if life is what you make it, then this is what we make it too.
