We were like best friends, only better. No secrets, there was nothing to hide. We where each others back up; but life is… Life is life.
Exactly one year ago I was outside my house sitting under the moonlights reach, looking into my best friends eyes while he was telling me that the 3 and a half years of being the amazing couple we were, was to be no more. One year from now I spent hours crying because it had been a long way. Because it hadn’t been easy fighting against all the things that were taking us apart and yet there we where. We loved each other so much, yet when some mistakes are done and things go wrong, some decisions must be taken for better…
I didn’t want to be apart from him, and I don’t think he wanted it either; at least not absolutely. We promised to remain friends and be there for each other. We gave time some time, though we never ceased communication. He never really left. I didn’t have my boyfriend, but I had him and he had me. Sounds pretty, and and it was; as well as it was hard… being just friends after years of being one another’s other half.
Now we have different lives, new friends, and completely different plans every week-end, never the less we do find some time to talk and laugh together, we are good friends. We chose differently then many others who turn apart. What could have been matters no more, what it is and will be, does. I’m glad that all the good times together are not just a memory but a living joy. Life is life, and I’m sure great things are ahead waiting for both of us, and we will share them like only good friends do.
"For myself, I believe that Beauty still dwells among the rocks - scarcely to be reached at all and never without labour undreamed of by the average unperverted lover. One makes Beauty rarely then; but the making, however slender and elusive and unsatisfactory for the lover, has the merit of being creative."

Just before putting it inside the car, from her hands slipped the mirror that she had thought of taking with her to the new house. It broke into many pieces, and that’s exactly how she felt, broken. Then she remembered what is said by the ones that say to know what they say, that a broken mirror its said to bring seven years of bad luck. So then she smiled, because even when she was carrying that which many carry with them and makes them want to cry, they forget to smile instead just like she did. Because she saw what many forget to look upon, the bright side. She picked up all that mess of broken crystals that somehow attempted to imitate her beauty, and she trowed them out to the trash container. She got on the car leaving behind all that, and set herself to drive to that new place that she at least could call her own. She had just started a new life.
Dejando Atrás (Versión Original por Lira Ramos):
Justo antes de subirlo a su auto, de sus manos resbaló el espejo que pensaba llevar a la nueva casa. Se rompió en mil pedazos y así mismo estaba ella; en mil pedazos. Por todo el suelo, estaba su imagen, rota. Entonces recordó que dicen los que dicen que saben, que se dice que aquel que se le rompe un espejo le esperan siete años de mala suerte. Sonrió entonces ella, que aunque tenía lo que muchos tambien tienen y cargan con las imensas ganas de llorar, no saben sonreir como lo supo hacer ella. Solo porque ella supo ver el lado hermoso de lo que allí ocurrió. Recogió del suelo todo aquel desastre de cristales rotos que reflejaban su hermosa imagen y los tiró al contenedor. Se subió al auto dejando atrás todo aquello, y fijó su rumbo hacia la que ahora sería su casa. Acababa de empezar una nueva vida.
A very universe-receptive friend of mine has been dreaming a lot of disturbing stuff, and he said to me “I want a dream catcher”. Since I perceive dreamcatchers as personal objects that perfectly fit their owner, I thought it be great if I made my friend his dreamcatcher and with real semi-precious stones on it… I’m taking my time to purify the stones and pick everything right… At the store I decided on buying myself some stones to make me a dreamcatcher as well. My best friend Ulises and I agree that when in need of a specific stone, its vibes will call to you… There was a bunch of stones that where not labeled with there names and despite the fact that I wanted a Turquoise I picked this green and pink colored stone for me. When back home, after some “Google Magick” I found out that I currently hold with me a Unakite a combination of deformed red jasper and green epidote solidly bound together… as I read a while ago “what comes together, belongs together.”
My friend has bad dreams, on the other side my life is now in need of new order after the tornado that passed by and the few sporadic rains that come by it every other day… the universe keeps sending me signals. I’ve started over and continue on a constant search to find myself again. So searching for Carlos’ wellness I might have found mine as well. Here’s what I found out:
Unakite is excellent at removing obstacles to your personal growth. Meditations with this gemstone will aid in releasing pain and anger that you are having trouble letting go of. You may use Unakite to build your self-confidence, as it strengthens your courage, assisting you in taking control of the aspects of your life that you can yield power over. Giving you confidence to transform anger and fear into positive constructive energies.
