If You’re Like Me…

You see the things that others miss

You hear what is said in the spaces and the silences.

Life is best lived on the edges

Too much of one thing leaves a desire for leaving.

Many call you eclectic. 

Your type is “no type,”

Whether it’s food, music or lovers.

You’ve been called to a Higher Purpose

At times it scares you and at times you feel you’re chasing something you’ll never meet.

Wonderful things happen to you serendipitously, and often. Miraculously.

Others often tell you that you’re “just what they needed” or a “a breath of fresh air.”

Sometimes, or often, you overthink things…. 

As you enjoy the analysis, understanding  and the learning of new things.

You want to soar and yet you often clip your own wings

Or you stare over the edge, not believing in your abilities…

People think they know you,

People with whom you’ve been friends for years 

don’t know some of the things that others, 

almost strangers, know so well.

You hide in fear of being exposed,

Yet your true desire is to be fully unclothed.

Words are your weapons or your gift,

You can use them to bring others to their knees…

Either in praise of you or in desperate surrender.

Your power both calls to you and frightens you.

You are a magnet. Sometimes you wish to repel.

Others can energize you or deplete you.

While you can be the extrovert, and recharge at crowded venues of your liking,

your true nature and deepest desires are introverted (perhaps you’re ambiverted?).

Too much of either extreme can be detrimental:

Too much extroversion drains you

Too much introversion depresses.

You’ve felt the pull of another for most of your life,

When in the right frame of mind, you can feel her, as she feels you, too.

You want the intimacy of answering that call,

Yet the vulnerability scares you. (That’s putting it lightly).

Those who have a sight beyond the physical are either in awe or fear of you. 

They see where you hide and often that frightens even you.

You have a knack for choosing the most expensive items, 

even if you don’t indulge your desires.

A jack of all trades, yet unlike most, you do master some.

You always seek to further your education,

Even beyond what is called for with your profession.

When in (seemingly) dangerous situations, 

You feel somehow protected and held. 

You are very sensual and your heart is 

Bigger than anything within you,

Yet you protect it as if it were the crowned jewel. 

You know your heart is meant to be shared,

Yet you have been hurt from wearing your heart on your sleeve,

So often you keep your sleeves covered.

Your heart desires the exposure…

Deep down this conflicting desire scares you.

You feel limited by the human condition.

You desire to control the things you ultimately cannot, 

The free will of others is beyond your grasp. 

The power is in the surrender. 

Without her, at some level, you feel incomplete.

I could continue and now it’s time to move onto other adventures, for which I’m now late 😉

Namaste: the light in me sees and honors the light in you…

Writing out my thoughts has helped me to gain a new perspective of myself. In sharing these writings, it is my hope to help others to better understand themselves. It is my belief that with each of us who chooses this path of greater understanding of thy self, that it inspires others to do the same. This building momentum is the force that drives me to share, for in my vulnerability, I find my strength. I believe that you can also find yours there. ~~~In reading some of my posts, you will see that growth is not always pretty. It is in breaking apart and coming undone that a seed sprouts and breaks free of its own captivity. It is also out of mud that the lotus blossoms. ~~~Please join me in seeing the beauty of growth within the deconstruction of our limiting beliefs. ~~T.C.

  1. Such a beautiful window into the soul of Tiffany! Remember that article on Soul friends? Yes! You, dear Sister, are a mirror into my soul. You have brought clarity to the thoughts and feelings of a lifetime. You have helped me find me. Like an Angel sent by God to help me release myself from captivity! Thank you for being you and for sharing yourself, your life, your struggles, your doubts and your triumphs with all of us. You know me too well, it’s almost scary. But in the end it is comforting . 😋😉😘❤️ Have a Super Awesome Great Day! XOXO Barney

  2. I love this!!! I laughed out loud at “you have no type” because that’s totally me and I often can’t answer when I’m asked for favorites. I have none! Or I have five- which means none, lol. This is awesome!

      1. I see suffering as a catalyst or springboard… maybe even like the draw of a bowstring, being pulled back before we can leap forward. The challenge is not getting stuck in the “loaded” position
