Inside

 



"Do you remember the time when you gave your Ex money for her birthday while you were still together and I was so upset?!  My energy immediately changed, and you knew something was wrong.  That's what happened to you thee other day when I mentioned Adonis's part in our story.  You didn't speak to me for days.  If you need to say something, then you should.  We aren't the type of individuals   to hold things back.  Everything we do effects both of us.  You holding on to shit for dear life, pointing out and obsessing over every aspect of the situation, only able to see my faults.  Not wanting to own any responsibility is a very childish, victim mentality.  For months, I have taken your lead, letting you control the situation, and just going with the flow.  All that has resulted from that IS my fault, I let it all happen.  Everything that has happened is in direct response to your behavior.  We are each operating exactly as you designed it; you should be thrilled.  I have sat silently, accepting shit, and going with this decidedly dumb-ass flow for fear of losing you.  At this point, everything I thought we were has been be-littled and pissed away, therefore, nothing to lose.  I'm not chasing anymore, that stops here.  The choice to keep on running is totally up to you.  I'm all in, and have been from day one.  I don't know what else to say or do to convince you otherwise.  I figured out, at long last, that was never something I was meant to do.  That's YOUR issue to deal with.  The truth of the matter is, I was ALWAYS yours, but you were NEVER mine.  Love isn't complicated, it's the simplest, most understood concept in the Universe.  There's nothing we do to earn or deserve it, it just IS."

A round of applause for Ms. Avri James and that sensational monologue!   Now all I have to do is work up the nerve to SAY it to Landon.  It was time to go for broke.  Nothing had really been right between us in ages; all because of things left unsaid.  I was tired of all of it.  If we were going to get back on track, then we needed to go ahead and put in the work to make it happen; point blank period.   This current version of us was so juvenile and unrecognizable, I didn't even want to be apart of it anymore.  I took the first step; I called Landon and told him we needed to talk when I got back.  No matter what happens, I'm happy with my decision to stand up for myself.  One of the hardest things about being involved with your TF is that you KNOW, without being told, exactly what the other person is feeling at any given moment.  It makes it extra hard to communicate, because you know they know what's on your mind.  This is where the human condition gets in the way and begins to complicate things.  If we were to simply ACT  on those feelings, it's an ASSUMPTION.  We need confirmation in the form of words to assure us of what it is we already know.  However, we grow increasingly aggravated because we are doing the exact opposite of what we feel.  We sit back, each waiting on the other to validate our what it is we are feeling so we know we aren't losing our minds.  Why does intuition need to be validated?!  Why is it so hard to simply KNOW what we feel is real?!

Believing in our own power can sometimes be an insurmountable task.  It's the one thing you just can't seem to imagine.  The fact is, despite everything, it's the one thing I refuse to live without.  It's just too important to me.  I cannot remember the last time I have wanted something so badly.  I'll be the 1st to admit just how hard life can be when it comes to certain shit; I DEFINITELY pick my battles.  For the most part, I attempt to be in tune with the Universal flow of all things.  There are certain times where I try and let go out of sheer frustration.  The Universe then steps in, blocking all exits.  It's irrefutable confirmation that I am exactly where I'm supposed to be; and this, whatever it is, is worth the fight.  My worst fear is standing in my own way.  So there it is ladies and gentleman; the contents of Avri James's head and heart.  No wonder Landon is all over the place!  I know there's a special place in Heaven for men that learn to tolerate and truly appreciate the thought process of the women they love.  My hope is to ramble here, where words can go on forever, with endless lines to fill.  That way, when I actually talk to him, I get my point across without losing my way.  In a perfect world, that's the way this would play out.  I know there are particular destinations whose journey is far more significant than the place you finally arrive...I'm just ready to learn the lesson so I can GET THERE!!

I had been wandering around in my own little world for I don't know how long.  I looked up, and had inadvertently started heading back to my dorm.  My subconscious had badgered me long enough, and it was time to face the music.  I actually DID feel better!  I no longer felt like I was about to explode.  I guess me spending the last hour or so in my head had paid off.  I was totally at peace.  I mean, what was there to actually fear?!  Rejection?  Disharmony?  Um, excuse me Ms. James, haven't you already been there several times before?!  Don't you already know what that feels like?  Did you experience physical death?!  I touched my face with both hands, just to confirm I was STILL here.  I felt a sudden rush of elation, as if something absolutely amazing was about to happen.  It was like I was now empowered to say ANYTHING, without reservation.  I had finally accepted AND believed that this man loved me unequivocally-there would be no confrontation; simply a conversation-a meeting of the minds.  This entire time I was creating imaginary hype.  Forest for the trees Avri; stay focused on the FOREST...

Flash Forward: The Twin Flame Connection

              One of the things I get the most comments on when it comes to Avri James and Landon is about the Twin Flame Connection, what are my thoughts on it, and most importantly, do I believe in it.  Most of you guys out there want to know whether or not I consider what Avri and Landon have a TFC, and WHEN would it come into play in their story...Ask and ye shall receive!  By request, an anecdote from Avri and Landon that addresses just that; I hope it provides the strength needed to hold out for it ALL... There was ONE time, when I could no longer deny the TFC; and I knew for sure it was real...I lived out of state for a while and had been seeing someone else.  Landon and I hadn't seen each other for a time, and had been living separate lives.  I had been coming and going, but ours paths just never seemed to cross.  One day, my family attended this baby shower.  I chose not to, as I didn't know the intended at all.  After it was over, my aunt stopped by, giving me a rundo

Great Expectations

              I couldn't believe it; it was FINALLY here!!  This trip had been at the forefront of all my thoughts for the past few weeks-now that it was actually time to leave it all felt surreal.  It honestly felt a little strange to be this excited about going on a trip I had originally planned and discussed so many times before with Landon.  In all actuality, I never thought I would get the chance to go.  I just figured the Universe would open up and swallow me, and I would never make it!  The strangest part of all though, was that it didn't even bother me, which caused me to feel slightly uneasy, just for a few moments; old habits die hard.  For once, I felt like I was doing something for ME.  My greatest desire for the whole thing was to find out what parts of Avri still remained; to remember who the fuck I was.  I had felt so lost and disconnected lately- an Avri identity crisis, if you will... See, that's the part I find the hardest to wrap my mind around; how impor

"Amerie"

  "...So many things I'm going through, So much that I wanna do~It's starting to become so clear to me, tomorrow ain't really guaranteed~So many days I've thought of you, it's about time you knew the truth~Gotta act quickly you and I, to fall in Love so many reasons why..." I could feel the sun slipping through the downturned slats of my wooden blinds.  It crept slowly across the floor; climbing my bedspread, and finally kissing my fingers before I opened my eyes.  I smiled, thanked the Universe for Life, and rolled over, feeling around for my book.  I hadn't fully decided if I was quite ready to get up yet.  Still in mid-thought, the sound of chimes began to softly ascend; it was my phone reminding me of the day I had ahead of me.  Whelp, decision made.  I'm up.  I didn't mind too much though; today had the potential to be dope.  I love the Summer.  It's the way the air smells; IDK, it does something to me...Melanie and I had a whole day l
