My Over Articulate & Exceedingly Verbal Life
Think. Speak. Tryst.
Life is a paradox. Nothing stays the same forever. We grow, we change, we learn, we experience & we teach.. This is my space to be free, to be me, to write about my journey through life. I am honored by those who follow my work and poetic pieces. I hope I can make an impression on you through my love of writing.
How to define a life, is difficult thing to do. We are not what we do, so who are we? I talk a lot. I am a deep thinker. I’m always trying to decipher, define, understand & learn. I am a seeker of knowledge & wisdom. I am my greatest teacher, also my greatest critic. I am an ACF certified Chef who also studied Journalism & Business, I was a dancer, I am an artist, a writer, a photographer. I like to create things, I make jewelry and paint canvases, and I love, absolutley love music. I travel and speak a little spanish, I can snowboard and surf. My spirit is the most peaceful when I’m on a beach, but I love the mountains as well. I enjoy living in a large city, but I don’t enjoy being one place for too long. I have seen many beautiful places in this world so far, and I have not stopped yet. I like to make plans, but I also live a life that can go any direction if I so choose. My spirit likes to be free, and my soul likes to shine.
This is me, but it’s not who I am. That is the most difficult question to ask anyone, it is also the most difficult question to answer.
It’s all just a form of self expression.
Think. Speak. Tryst ~ What’s this all about?
This blog is called Think.Speak.Tryst. I will write about the things I and We think, the things our spirits talk about, and tryst, of course is the blog itself. (Tryst is a date or a rendezvous..) Its my personal space to write the millions of thoughts & experiences I have had or shared with others and intellectually stimulate my desire to write the things I think and speak ~
Keep in mind I am a woman, an individual, my own mind only writing to express myself. I’m neutral to others opinions, non prejudice against others and conflicting opinions, and I have a true sense of admiration, respect, and honor of people, as I believe people are truly unique and amazing in their own ways.
We are all in possession of spirit. It is in those spirits that inhabit our world and make this universe a truly remarkable place. For those that read my blog, I hope you enjoy our tryst of things to think & speak.
Think. Speak. Tryst. & My Over Articulate & Exceedingly Verbal Life ~ J Lefever
This is my own space to write. Writing is something that cleanses my mind and soul. For as much as I enjoy writing, I also need it. I have always been a deep thinker. Always trying to analyze everything. So I put my pen to paper to express these analytical thoughts of mine in books and journals, and over the years, I have quite a large collection of them. This is my first blog, although I was introduced to the world of blogging many years ago, in my first semester of college. Here I find myself, many years later, a more refined writer and a woman who has many things to say.
At times, I am very poetic. There have been times in my life where I was very lost and dark. Other times, I am very straight forward and blunt. I am an out-loud speaker of my mind and I don’t sacrifice who I am for the sake of others. I’m artistic and creative, and I crave, crave so much more out of this life that I call mine! Too many times, it seems, people over look life as something we all just have… and become unfortunately blind to the gifts and virtues that we possess, that we can receive and experience from others, and that we can build and create, nourish and improve for ourselves as we move forward in time.
Life is too short to bullshit. I’ve learned this after going through enough bullshit of my own. Time is too precious to waste.
This I have learned after wasting too much of my time on people, situations and things that really were not worth it at all in the long run. This, the wasting of time on unworthy people, I absolutely do not do anymore and it feels so great! Sometimes I’m loud and other times not. At times I am polite and sweet, other times a little bold and sarcastic. I write about things I’ve done wrong., and things I’ve done right. We all mess up, I’m a human being, I’d be ignorant to think otherwise. I get frustrated with the ignorance of others. Those ignorant people who walk around as if they have never made a mistake, or have the answers to everyone’s problems, or just handle everything so right and perfect. No one has all the answers, we are all in this together! I try to bite my tongue, but sometimes I do slip and the words just fall out of my mouth, questioning someone on the very reason of their utter stupidity and if they are even aware of it…? It’s ok, we all have moments when we lack all reason…
I find myself practicing really good levels of empathy, thoughtfulness, and patience lately. (Much more patience now, than ever in my life…this has come with age and wisdom) There are times when I would close my eyes and dream of being elsewhere… but the impossibility of some dreams brings me back to reality, and, I realize that where ever I am, that is exactly where I’m supposed to be. I am the one who needs to teach my soul, teach it to open up and see what ever it is that I’m meant to see, where ever it is that I am… There is always a lesson to learn, always something to gain… There are always ways to improve, to grow, to better refine my knowledge and wisdom’s. Through my life so far, through all of my experiences, through all the things I have said, seen, and done, I am quite happy with who I am… Who I am becoming…
And the journey continues.

The Art of Writing
Have you ever been asked, Who you are? Do you know? How would you answer? Who really knows who you are, who I am, especially, if even I don’t. There is a large space between knowing OF me and actually knowing WHO I AM. Aquaitences, friends, loved ones, and family… I can honestly say, few actually have gotten to know me. Through all the years, all the countless people, if you asked, only a select few actually know that I have written all my life. Yes, I call myself a writer, but that is still only something that I do, I write. It is not, who I am. I remember when my husband and I were falling in love, in those wonderful moments in the beginning of our tryst as a couple, I read some of my things to him. He said after all the years of knowing me, (we were friends for 15 years before we established each other as one), he had no idea that I was a writer. To this day he is my biggest fan and is always the first to hear the pieces I write. My first post, Think.Speak.Tryst, explains the path of this blog in detail. I feel that after all this time, all the years I have dedicated to improving my writing abilities, I’m motivated to writing my first blog and getting my words out there for others to see…
It is known that I am my own biggest critic. I am not shy. I’m very proud of who I am. I have a love for writing and poetic expression that grows more and more, just as I do. Some may like the things I write, some may not. Some may understand, and others may not. Although this blog is out there for anyone to see, Still, I write just for me. I have always enjoyed reading the work of other thinkers and writers, just like myself. For those that enjoy, I am pleased to have made an impression through the art of writing.
