You reach out to another.
There is chemistry, attraction, connection and excitement to have a new adventure.
Perhaps it won’t be like the past. Perhaps this time it is special.
We sift through motions, giving way to emotions. Even subconsciously, we pair off, encircling ourselves in our mind and heart with this other person.
The connection is meaningful and you open up to show a glimmer of your true self. Sometimes the other does the same, but not always.
Even if the ball gets dropped. Even if the other person disappoints. Even the most strong of us experience an impact.
Be encouraged. For it requires bravery to have loved at all.by Jessi Lohman
Time goes by and suddenly it’s gone.
Make the art, make it happen.
Take the time to create the art that makes a difference, that inspires and changes lives.
Flush your system, eat a little less, exercise a little more. Clarity comes in a beautiful way. Reuniting you with dreams long-since dead.by Jessi Lohman
As I sit, looking outside the window.
Trying to write
Alive with autumn
Leaves dancing on the wind
How can I ever focus?
With so much beauty
Then I realize
Realization of realizations
If I write it down
Immortalizes the moment
Making it available
To live again and again.
There is never an end to the story of a writer. Once they finish one tale, they move on to furnish another. In order to complete each one, requires discipline, tenacity, inspiration and focus.
Inspiration does not come easy. Sometimes you have to roll up your sleeves, get out there and pounce on some. Other times, you have to be still and listen for the whisper to bless your work.
It took six years to complete Befriending Death. Although it’s been a handful of years since then, it doesn’t mean I’ve put my pen down. In fact, there’s a handful of amazing projects on the horizon.by Jessi Lohman
We have never met
Or have we?
They become greater
Than today or yesterday
A chance to meet?
I’d take it
Encourage your path
Breath fire into mine
Energized back and forth
Gone our separate ways
Destined for different shores
Beyond our control
For our first kiss
Spreading through the room we’re in
Traveled on solo journeys within
You blew joy into my chest
Laughter consuming us
As rambunctious children
A teasing and relaxing nature
Reclining backwards as friends
Cheers to the day
To be enjoyed
By hearts of joy
When was the last time you were so excited about something, you were awake all night?
Making my way through life, juggling work and responsibilities, running errands and squeezing in time with the people I care about the most, I made an interesting observation.
Most people I encounter… seem as though they are sleep walking. Going through the motions of a life half-lived.
Have you noticed the same thing?
Then I realized something even more alarming… I’d been doing the exact same thing.
Plunging into activities I love, writing and reading and painting and dancing, still the blood would not pump. The passion that once fluttered in my heart and in each step was nonexistent.
I had to take it back to the basics. I had to surrender. Ask for help. Invest in resources. Follow my heart when I did feel a flutter of engagement.
The result? I laid awake all night, so excited about the possibilities that I couldn’t settle down long enough to sleep.
Although I think sleep is among the most important (and most pleasant) of all activities, there is something to be said for being able to live your life from a place of passion.

This morning I asked the question, “Why am I here?”
The answer was: Movement.
I am in a constant state of flux and change. Things never remain the same for long. The moment I get comfortable in a situation, is the moment is begins to turn to sand in my hands.
Riding the waves of change. Knowing change is indefinite is also why it is so difficult to plan the next move.
I still have a yearning in my heart to do something better than I am. Something more fulfilling. Channel wisdom and lead people toward something better.
Lead people to find divinity within themselves.by Jessi Lohman
Developing roots is hard work. As they grow, nutrients and experiences and soils create various sizes and strengths.
What areas of your life are the most strong?
Build on those. Reach down deep and enjoy your strengths. Improve your soil. Provide nutrients. Honor your place and your path in this world.by Jessi Lohman
