Lost Youth Rekindled

Unfiltered from the Heart

At a young age, I learned to suppress and filter my truth, in the process I also lost my youth. Even with my blog, I’ve held so much of myself back. 

Yesterday, I reached a turning point and am in the process of changing things a bit to become “unfiltered from the heart.” This was a domain I purchased some months back. Now I’m ready to take that next step and make it happen. I want to return to speaking my truth much as babes do, unfiltered and from the heart. So expect more changes as I make some course corrections. 

Lost Youth 

While I’m more lit up (in a positive way) now than I have ever been, I still can be more “grown up” and serious than I need to be. Still in “Type A” recovery. With each ounce of fear that I surrender into, I’m allowing myself to trust The Universe and God more and more, with the sweet innocence of a child. Yet with the budding wisdom of a woman in her mid-life. Now I’m leaving behind the Shakespearean version of the Hokie Pokie. 

Choosing the Front Row

Allowing things to fly, exposing some skin – allowing myself to feel okay in spite of my perceived sins. No longer desiring to take the safe roads, or be in the third row… Yes, the first row suits me! Thank you, Sir, may I have another?

Dancing it out

Dancing in the mornings as I get ready and make breakfast has been incredibly transformative! If you haven’t taken the time to play your favorite tunes during your morning routine, I highly recommend it. Your mind, soul and hips will thank you! 

Join me, I don’t want to leave you behind!

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. Golly girl, I am so happy for you! Happy that you sound so happy in this new place you’ re in. Does that even make sense? Happy in the front row! I like that too! By way of confession I forgot my music today, and no dancing, but that’s ok, went straight from making coffee to writing and it was very productive so I’m good. Your recent posts have encouraged me to lighten up and I really needed that. I have always thought of you as unfiltered so I can’t wait to see what the future brings.

      1. Amen! I’m slowly learning to focus on the beauty and less on the weeds, that, like you have pointed out, still need some pulling. In with the new, the beautiful and out with the old, that which no longer serves me in Truth! ❀ Barn

  2. Curious about your blog status. I’m on a plane and navigating from my phone so can’t explore too well. You purchased a domain name through WP and was able to transfer all of your content? P.S. I have the song safety dance running through mind now…thank youπŸ˜„

    1. Nice re safety dance, it was unintentional, just too funny to not include.
      Re blog- well, I’m still working on the transfer part. When I purchased the new domain I didn’t add it to TBF, which would have made for a seamless transition. yet a few months ago I had different plans, so I didn’t add it… I’ve changed tag lines and the banner. Just waiting to hear back from WP on best way to get the new domain added. Maybe they’re working on the spam issue. πŸ˜‰

      1. I’ve avoided the spam issue so far…knock on wood. Hope the WP mechanics go well with the transition. I still think about getting another blog where the host can’t shut me down out of the blue. Did you get your comments back when they restored the blog you temporarily lost?

      2. I was able to recover everything, just had to remove all “offending” images both in media and on the site. All comments were preserved. There is also a way to back up the site that includes all comments. The only issue is that it’s all in HTML.
