Anklets of Inspiration 

I wear an anklet around my right ankle in the hot summer. It hangs loose so it doesn’t hurt my skin- it is delicate and always with me. For whatever reason I connect it with inspiration. Inspiration is everywhere-for me, inspiration is the constant yet delicate shove to coax the lock off my soul and spill the contents. 

My beautiful soul sister Erika Kind posts daily songs and quotes- I find myself looking forward to her posts. She inspires and excites. Like my anklet, she has become a delicate and constant charm in my journey. She has inspired me to share my inspiration with all of you. It may be a photo, a song, a quote, a movie or maybe just a singular moment that changed my day. Like a charm bracelet I would like to collect my inspirations and share them with my favorite poets, creators and artists..all of you! Oh and please check Erika out- she is a pure sunshine! 

My random inspiration tonight~

  1. Nice post and yes Erika is a sunshine! I loved the connections between anklet and inspiration is beautiful! And it is strange that you post this in a moment while I have been thinking from weeks to a new design and it is an anklet 😉 that it is universal energy right here ❤

  2. OMG! I am so late to discover your beautiful post. I don’t know what to say. You not only touched me profoundly, you made me weep. Really I am out of words which could even nearly say what I feel. To compare me with your anklet which is always with you, the loving words you have for me. It took me decades to feel loved. Once I did I wante to pass this on. Because I wanted everybody to discover the liberation of feeling worthwhile and loved. Your post showed me in the most beautiful way that found my place in this world. Thank you so, so much and know that you are loved and highly appreciated. You have a huge place in my heart. Thank you 💖 💖 💖

    1. Oh Erika! Thank you for sharing that with me. I am on a journey of praying to feel loved, I haven’t felt it-I have felt loved in a sense of “I love you when you fit into my box” but not purely loved as me- just me. Which is not nearly perfect and has been labeled as “not good enough” for most of my life. I realized just this year that I have spent so much time molding into the shapes others wanted just to be loved! I woke up and realized “I don’t even know who I am” my journey is to love myself and shred the unfair labels I have been given- because dammit I am good enough! ;)) I feel there is a reason I have connected with you- you have such a sweet depth of kindness and realness. Plus you are so loving to me and you have impacted me and warmed my soul. To hear you have felt unloved I initially think “you are oozing love and was instantly lovin your spirit” thank you for being a friend and encourager to me. Please don’t go away! 💖💖💖 I know I rambled here- thank you for listening and being a constant love in my journey. You are definitely a beautiful and real inspiration to me. ❤️💖

      1. I definitely was meant to be that we meet here. I never wanted to be in touch with social media, but life made it happen. Here I am and here you are. I can only say that what you described could have been my story. For almost 40 years I thought I only deserve love when I fit in. I made it out there. It is possible in simply understanding that this is nonsens. False beliefs we gladly took over. As much as it is in my hands I won’t go away. The love I find here, the love I may give here, and that my love is accepted show me that I am right where I am supposed to be. And so are you, dear Souldier Sister. You are important and you are profoundly loved! If you want to email me, feel free to do so at any time 💖 💖 💖

      2. Thank you Erika- I believe I will- I am in the middle of pulling out and being sucked in. Of course it feels like that a lot but this time is different because I feel I have made a lot of progress and don’t want to lose it. I am so grateful you are here. I am so grateful for you!! You truly have a big place in my heart too and your story and your presence bring me hope.

  3. Of course I would easily imagine you to be a person who has a beautiful “power focus” such as this! What a lovely description for something that reminds you of the delicate nature of our souls. As I’ve said before, you have a power reach when it comes to raw emotion. I draw inspiration from kindred spirits like you. You’re a wonderful Lady, SG.

  4. I used to wear anklet but it hurts my ankle everytime I wear my shoes. That’s because I do jogging everyday and walk in my shoes everyday. Although I did wear it outside the sock. But having forgotten that it is outside my sock, I tear it apart once I open my socks! Ugh!LOL

    But I have a bracelet which I really love so much and it was a gift from my father. It is almost 18 years old now and it is my inspiration. It got this one small rounded bell that clings all the time when I move. My kids knows it when Mommy is coming because of that tiny bell on my bracelet. It is something of which my kids will surely miss when I am not here! 🙂

    1. Oh that’s so beautiful! Mommies sweet sound :)) yes I wear mine in the summer because I’m pretty much in sandals all the time. It’s funny I tried a new anklet and it ended up really irritating my skin because it wasn’t real silver and my skin is very sensitive. I compared my anklet to the realness of my friends in life- the fake ones just end up going away and the real ones last :))
      Thank you for sharing about your bracelet, that is so beautiful to me. You are a very special soul Sherrie.


    1. Thank you So much Eric! Btw I wrote you back a huge message on your blog then there was an error sending and it stated that it was “unable to send” ugg!! It all got erased and I was frustrated. I want you to know how much I appreciate you being so honest and sharing. I really draw wisdom and inspiration from you. I’ve been having a hard time lately with people I genuinely love who have decided to leave my life- they are able to shut me off like its nothing. It’s very hard to understand that sort of behavior. I know I’m doing the right thing by finally doing what’s best for me but I wasn’t anticipating certain people being so upset about that. It’s a strange reaction but reading your experience helped me to know that I wasn’t alone and that its OK not to be an ass kisser forever. It’s ok! Lol. Anyway, I really appreciate you Ease. Truly and really and always!

      1. I’m sorry about the error message and your post being erased. I’m not sure what happened but when I get home I will check my settings. I am grateful that I am able to help you through my posts. That means the world to me. I have had issues with people pleasing for years and now that I am clean I realize a lot of phoney ass people that were in my life. I realize that I can do bad all by myself and a lot of people don’t like it. But I also have learned that it’s not my problem. Its theirs. They can either accept me for who I am or tgey can move on. I don’t wish to associate myself with fake friends. Nor will I allow people to mistreat me any longer. I exercise my choice to move forward today. People come and go in my life. I understand today that I have no control over their actions only over how I choose to respond. You are absolutely right. You have to do whats best for you. No one is responsible for our happiness. We are responsible for it. I am thankful to have you as a friend Souldiergirl and I thank you for you inspiration, support, kind words and encouragement. Have an absolutely wonderful day. Because you can. 🙂

      2. No apologies needed Ease! I think it was an error on my end- but it didn’t stop me from writing again ;)) boom!! You are just on fire today- or more than just today but yes!! I really need this- you’re right, it is their issue- I feel bad for the people I am experiencing this with because it just seems like a sad way to live to me. Shutting so many people out left and right. I am proud of you for not allowing people to mistreat you. I hope you don’t mind if I screen shot some of your words- I am not as strong but dammit I am going to do it! I am tired of getting so sad by people’s actions- but in a way I am responsible too for letting them back in and helping them (thinking things will be different) and then when I literally can’t help how they need, I get the shaft. “I exercise my choice to move forward today” I love that. I repeat that. Thank you so so much for sharing. You seriously have made an impact. You get me pumped up!

      3. I admire your determination. You have all the strength you need Souldiergirl. Like you said you are tired. Thats what motivated me. I was tired of people mistreating me. I finally learned that I am the only one who can change it. I am responsible for my happiness and people will treat me how I allow them to. I am happy for you making a decision to exercise your choice to move forward. I have found it to be such a freeing decision. Please screen shot anything you like. I am just happy that I can help. I am grateful that I get you pumped up and can make an impact. Thank you for all your kind words, support and encouragement. Keep your head up. Keep sharing abd most importantly keep moving forward. Peace and Blessings 🙂

      4. Thank you Ease! I will. Each day as it comes right- and I choose again today. Yes I am tired, so tired and you’re right- the literal exhaustion is forcing me to choose another way- tired of being tired, only I can make that change. More inspiration from you to get through my Friday!
