I think the mistake that I make is that I begin to want to find salvation in you. Rescue in you. Peace in you. Security in you. Safety in you.
I think I’m beginning to finally understand.
Though it’s taken some time.
It is something to understand conceptually, it’s another to understand it in embodiment.
It’s a whole other to understand it both conceptually and in embodiment.
I don’t want to feel this way anymore – this way where it feels like I’m constricting.
Or better said, I don’t want to deny this human experience (with all its ups and downs), but I do want to get better at catching myself falling and consciously transforming my energy.
About me pages always make my mind go blank, which is ironic because there's really so much to say. I guess what stumps me is where do I start?
Here are the basics: They named me Laura. They, meaning my parents, who were never married but mingled in 1988 in the country of Brazil, where little me was born.
I grew up in New York City among a melting pot of cultures, smells, and hustle.
I've learned to be a go-getter, thinker, intuitive, lover of life, peace maker, and coffee enthusiast - among other things.
I like to write. I've been keeping a journal since my early teenage years. I created Reflect Out Loud to simply share whatever is on my mind in whatever style that comes up for me. I try to let whatever I put out here be free flowing. I simply want to share my thoughts out in the open.
But to simplify this about me: I am a human, having a human experience. I have a story, just like you have a story. And some of that story you'll see here.
Um... I guess that's pretty much all I have for now.
