Finding My Shine

Finding my shine through introspection . . . a journey of internal reflection. Self-observation, expression, and inner-dialogue. A necessary step to self-realization. 

Plunging the depths of my soul, breaking free from patterns and people unconsciously entertained. Gaining clarity I can interpret my purpose, and with that - it is myself I regain.~ Kym L. Pasqualini

Souls For Sale

We live in a world where people sell their souls for success, only to find they can never get enough. Too many sacrifice conscience for ambition. 

Why should I care about others? Why should I contribute to building a better society? Why should I give to those less deserving? Maybe a new perspective is needed. 

Instead, ask yourself things like . . . how will society change without my help? How can I give back? How can I change people's lives? Isn't my legacy more important than my ambitions? Helping others and changing lives is "paying it forward" at its best! ~Kym L. Pasqualini

In Search for Land's End

Come, take my hand my friend, there is a journey to begin.
Join me on my adventure to search for land's end.
Our journey could take a minute, or possibly a lifetime.
There really is no telling - we will be fine.
Time has no bearing if we don't listen to the clock tick away.
It is the perfect moment for us to keep the world at bay.~ Kym L. Pasqualini

Ghosts of Future Past

When we let ourselves be haunted by the sorrows of love belonging in the past, we continue to give power to those whose love just didn't last - in fact, we dim the light of a new love that may cross our path. Impossible to hide, looking into haunted eyes, one can feel the distance and fear feelings may not last. Remember, no one can be expected to compete with ghosts of future past. They have no chance. ~ Written by Kym L. Pasqualini

Arizona Woman Speaks About Her Road to Recovery After Captivity

Though we can only speculate what the three Cleveland women and 6 year old child endured over an unimaginable ten year period of captivity, hopefully they will not continue to endure the scrutiny of people asking, "Why didn't they take an opportunity to escape?" It is difficult to understand the psychological and long-lasting impact of trauma. I hope I provide some insight as to what victims endure in this News 12 interview with Oralia Ortega. Instead of the public scrutinizing and questioning why they didn't escape sooner, what is important now, is embracing their safe return and recovery. ♥

Seeing Light in the Distance

At times, we see others from afar and the distance can be inches to miles in between.
Maybe it protects us from those things we would prefer remain unseen.
Vulnerabilities concealed, yet the highest walls fail to hide a pain that exists deep inside.

For those who possess, it takes great courage and strength to reveal.
Facing a path that darkness appears to have consumed, an outstretched hand can help us once again stand.
Those who "choose" to walk that journey alongside possess a deep human virtue that one cannot hide.
Empathy has the power to wipe away tears to strengthen another to fight away fears.
Like the rarest gem on this planet earth, they are like a star shining bright, a lighthouse that governs the safest route.
It is not always easy to accompany one through the shadows of life but if you are one of those gems that shine so bright, know that you are the few that help turn darkness to light. ~ Kym L. Pasqualini
