His Vision ~ My Reality

He made his vision my reality; without him, none of these excursions would ever be; I could have only imagined them; a love overseas is crazy, but his vision made me conform to his reality. #author #blogger #poet #theloveexperience #helmwomentakedr #thepoetryjournal

A Love Overseas

I don’t like waiting. Most of the time I like to get what I want, when I want it and if I don’t get it when I want it, somedays I want to give up on even wanting it anymore.

Does love endure long suffering? Does love have a reward or does love just love?

Distance separates lust from love, but what happens when you love to lust for the one you love?

Besos mami

Aguanta hasta febrero

Para hacerte el amor como un loco furioso

Overseas, it’s hard to see this love lasting endlessly. I don’t know if this wait is what it’s supposed to be. I’m sorry to give up on a love overseas. I give up ~ Lo Siento

True Story

The Poetry Journal wants to connect with you to identify the insecurities in your relationships. Fear, self-doubt, or jealousy. These feelings can occur. We all may experience some level of vulnerability when we choose to love, but you can work through them to achieve your level of confidence.

My book, “The Love Experience” is based on a love affair overseas and I write about identifying the many insecurities I faced and how they affect us psychologically. This Love Experience is based on a true story and is now available on Amazon.com. You can click here to buy your paperback

My Henna Artist @domsol has her copy!

My sister’s friend read her copy on vacation in St. Lucia.

My hair stylist just gave birth to her beautiful new born baby girl and she also has her copy.

This is a blessing to see my work in the hands of the ones I love. I know that I have more work to do to continue to reach you! Thank you Lord for my destiny. God is Glorious all the time.

I made it out to The Brunch Summer Finale Mixer & Market event. Thank you Manuela Gomez for the invite. Great sounds from three different DJs, free beer, and the opportunity to network with other local entrepreneurs. We all have a passion to be something or to do something to help someone else be better and to do better. This was mine.

Thanks Elijah and Nicole for your support as well.

This was my first time being a vendor at an event like this, but I have always dreamed of being here. Now I need to work on my presentation. I have great artifacts, but my presentation did not exceed my expectations.

When the patrons asked me what my book was about, I told them it was about my traveling experience and a love affair overseas in the Dominican Republic. Their first response was, “Is it a true story?” Reluctantly, I had to say yes. It seems that some people are intrigued by real life stories. I’m wondering if that’s true. If that is so, I have more work to do.

The Love Experience ~ Blog Edition is a short version of my perception of meeting someone overseas and dealing with a lot of insecurities to hold on to the most impossible love. In this book, I wrote about how we met and the feelings I wrestled with trying to explore more of him and their culture. I wanted to let go, but in real life I could not let go of him and those beautiful beaches. He was a part of my perceptions of lies, deceit and betrayal.

I was exposed to a culture of men working in tourism and pursuing foreign women for their own personal reasons. I did not want to be a victim of deceit, so I was trying to protect myself and to protect my heart. That is why in the book you will see how I was torn.

The adventure of meeting someone in the Caribbean, talking to them daily, traveling back and forth to visit them created a bond. Now it is a soul tie that I have not fully let go of. I say release and he keeps pulling me back in for more.

Yes, the concept of a love affair overseas is very true. But there’s more to the story. He has another side of him. After he broke down my perceptions of lies, deceit and betrayal, he continues to stay with me daily. I cannot explain it. Perhaps he likes our love story just as much as I do. Besides, why wouldn’t he love me? I do!

Hopefully one day he will be able to tell his side of the story. I know that I gave him a hard time, always threatening to leave him behind. Who can trust a man overseas these days? He always insisted I should stay. He is just a different breed. We will see.

Thank you Susann for your support. I receive your spiritual confirmation. Here is what Susann wrote after she bought her book yesterday.

Raquel, your book is a beautiful creation, you are living out one of God’s gifts that he had for you in your life long journey. How exciting to accomplish one of the many things that the Lord has tasked us with. Your travel and your book have been a part of your healing..God is with you and he’s proud of you. 💕

I’m so grateful. Thank you.

Alone

I can't always focus on the loss, although certain days without him reminds me of how much I miss him. I get angry sometimes and I can be very sad. I am alone in this. That's in my head.

I gain strength on the things that make me happy; big dreams, yet small goals.

My Lord reminds me that I am not alone. It's only by HIS grace and his mercy I am still here. A Mother for her three sons.

Alone, but not alone anymore.

Thank you for supporting self published authors!
