standing alone

This week I have had an interesting week, I have been told by 3 different people two things.

1) That I stand alone and don't need anyone.

2) I scare people just by being myself.

I've heard this before in life, of course from loved ones. The difference from these people that made it interesting is that they just met me and we were only speaking for less than 5 minutes when each one came with this conclusion. Honestly, I don't know how to take this, yes, it's a compliment but still I don't think my personality comes off as abrasive as these people made me feel. I love hearing people opinions trying to understand and "figure" me out, most people don't really know "how to read me". But it was interesting to get these people to tell me this. Again, normally I keep to myself but lately I have been doing my best to put myself out of my comfort zone and be my true self to everyone. I am just embracing this person I am becoming and if people don't like me I am okay with it. I don't have the time to conform myself to others comfort or views. The last person that said those things also said something else that caught my attention. He said:

"You are a student of the world, you are so grounded and open. Your energy is powerful - you scare me."

Mind you this is a sheriff that has been on the force for years and this is my first encounter. The more I am learning and opening myself to me - the more I feel the universe is sending signs as in this is the right path to take in life. I may not be where I want to be in all aspects of life, but I am where I need to be. I am finding myself and making my foundation and don't have time to be anything other than happy and having a good time!

Thank you for reading my post. I appreciate the love and support.

If you want to see anything go ahead and let me know.

I am relentless. Una Adelita - cloaked in a pedigree, rich in hierarchy, valor not lost in whispering winds of history. This is my birthright. A token of gratitude for all those faded in remnant resid

So, the last time I have posted a blog I was an hour away from my book release. Since that day so much has happened. My life has shifted in so many ways. A lot of ups and many lows. But the one thing
