When America was founded our founding fathers created various documents one of which is the Declaration of Independence! This document was in itself a declaration of war, a drawing of the line in the sand that states we have had enough! Enough of the government being in our business, enough of being over taxed, enough of limited or no freedom, enough of a specific religion being forced upon us and this was in 1776!
It is therefore my duty as an American to say I have had enough. I hereby state my own Declaration of Independence and therefore remove myself from the Republican/Democrat train wreck and proceed to seek out other, better choices.
I have had enough and draw the line in the sand. Starting this November I will go into the voting booth and start a revolution of real change as I vote for “Other”. The tea is going into the harbor!
You can’t have different voting for the same! At some point you have to say enough and make change really happen. It starts with you!
THINK DIFFERENT…I DARE YOU!
True revolution does not require weapons of war or destruction, but a change in precepts to seek out justice in the unjust and to bring about that which is right from all that is wrong. To bring about true ideals that balance lives of those who live in said nation with values of fairness, justice and wisdom.
True revolution begins in ones heart as the soul wearies of unjust acts by those in power and seeks to correct the destructive course of the nation of which they reside to bring about true peace and prosperity.
True revolution comes when one chooses to rise up and say NO MORE, that this has gone on long enough! When one desires hope for humanity in an inhumane world so inasmuch that one will stand even when at their weakest to bring strength to others just as weak and guidance to those lost of heart and hope.
True revolution begins with the spoken word or the written lines of ideals, hopes, and dreams of those who wish to bring about change, true change.
True revolution begins when we elect true leaders that support the ideals of fairness, justice, hope and the dreams of the nation of which they are to serve.
I now stand and draw the line that now is the time to start this revolution to change the direction of which we are headed. Election day is coming, stand your ground, bridge the gap, and stop letting those in power cross the line.
True revolution begins when we finally decide we want change and work as one nation to do just that. No more racial, political nor religious divides!
We are one or we are none!

The Final Transmission
Just a few thoughts of mine.
Forget dancing in the moonlight, dance in the daylight. Let people see the free spirit inside, let them see the joy of an unbound life, let them envy the freedom of being you, let them hate and detest that which they are too cowardly to be themselves, yet desire to be. Let them envy your sanity and lust after your insanity.
Let them laugh and mock, for they are the joke and you are the punchline! They laugh not because they find you funny, the laugh because they don’t get it!
Be bizarre, be unusual, be odd, be strange, be weird, be that which stands out!
If people aren’t curious, impressed or afraid, you aren’t trying hard enough!
I’m done with normal. I’m odd, weird and unusual and totally rock it!!!
People come into our lives for a reason, sometimes we don’t even really understand why. My heart is that of a free spirit and wanderer, I have had many come into my life, some have stayed and some have moved on or maybe I moved on.
I have had a few relationships in my life and now being single, I see that they all had meaning and added something to my life, and I hope I added something to theirs as well.
I am a hard person to figure out at times and though my light shines, it shines alone in the dark. But I hope that whatever light I shine it will show someone the way.
I feel everything deeply and not everyone can understand or appreciate that. I see things differently as well and not everyone has or understands my vision. What I see and feel ties into that which I do, my writing, philosophizing and sharing whatever thoughts or stories as they come to me.
There is much I need to do and it requires me to be alone at times to focus. I am alone, but not really lonely as I have many in my life that touch my heart daily. Many of you have included me into your lives as well and it has been appreciated and I have enjoyed my time with you.
Now I must journey this path before me alone in heart, thought and soul, but that which I do will be shared with all and whatever message I am meant to deliver will be there for you to see.
I am reaching deeper into my heart and finding that which has been lost for so long…me. Dormant skills have come to the surface and awakened once again and my life is becoming more fulfilling as I journey forward with all that I feel I need to do.
Maybe one day one will see the light who is meant to follow it and come, but today I shine brightly and live as I feel I should.
I may journey alone, but I am not alone in my journey.
“Q: …We wanted to see if you had the ability to expand your mind and your horizons. And for one brief moment, you did.
PICARD: When I realized the paradox.
Q: For that one fraction of a second, you were open to options you had never considered. That is the exploration that awaits you. Not mapping stars and studying nebulae, but charting the unknowable possibilities of existence.”

I small snippet of my favorite episode of STTNG. It has always been an inspiration. It, in my eyes, is about how the present and future can be affect by the past and you must deal with the destructiveness of the past to save your future. It showed how everything, past, present and future is connected.
For most of my life I was always there for someone else and many times I lost myself because of this. I never got to see who or what I was or explore my life to its potential. I was the sacrifice for someone else’s agenda or goal. My life was taken from me, now I’m taking it back!
This means removing and dealing with things that had or have a negative impact on my life. Removing people from my life that were unhealthy and bad influences. To finally set myself free and heal.
This has been my journey, dealing with destructive issues of my past to save my present and future. To experience that one brief moment of realization of all the possibilities of my life. To see what my life can really be and to experience and explore so much more of life. To open my mind to options I never even considered. To live!
That is the exploration, the journey, that awaits me!
What makes you happy, do that.
What brings adventure to your life, do that.
What heals your heart, do that.
What brings peace to your soul, do that.
But be warned, you can’t have happiness without sorrow, you can’t have adventure without risk, you can’t have healing without pain, and you can’t have peace without turmoil.
But still, do that for it is worth all you experience to get there.
The Final Transmission
Seventeen days into 2017 and am hit with sudden and unexpected changes in my life. Just found out today that the park I live in is going on the market to be sold. Not sure at this time what will happen, but for now I plan to stay until I find the need to move. Some of my life has changed in the past few weeks, some good, some bad, but in the end I do like I do when I work security, I just roll with whatever is happening and take it a moment at a time.
If I had the money or the financing I would buy this place in a heartbeat.
2015 saw a major change in my life as I began counseling and went through a breakup, 2016 saw me rise up and 2017 is challenging me to stay afloat and that I will. I refuse to sink this time, I’ve fought too hard to get to this point. I few bad days, a few bad changes, does not mean a bad year.
I will stand my ground!
I posted the following to my Facebook today:
“I am thankful today for the healing journey I am on. Regardless of what happened in my past, my present and future outlook is bright. I had a few false starts when I got here to Mississippi, but now I am on the right track and moving forward full speed ahead.
I am thankful for those who chose to stick with me through this journey and growing point in my life. Some of you have in-boxed me and allowed me to share details and listened. Thank you all!”
Throughout my journey I have met many people. Some have stayed even in my darkest hour while others have left for various reason, but mostly because they didn’t have the strength to deal or they just weren’t as supportive as they claimed and were in it for themselves. It’s amazing how fast people will leave you when you decide to live and do what is right for you and no longer live how they want you too.
My ex-gf treated me and called me an option that could be easily gotten rid of (her own words) and when things got tough, sure enough she left. I am happy about that really.
So many others have joined my journey and watched as I moved forward and grew as a person and worked on my healing.
I am thankful for my counselor who has given me the ear to lsiten and understand and the tools and encouragement to work on my life. She has helped me see truth about areas in my life that I needed to see. I have made great discoveries about myself and my past.
I am thankful for knowing my future is bright and I can move forward in the new me I have become.
I am of course very thankful for my readers here on my blog.
Happy Thanksgiving Ya’ll.
