Forget what’s considered normal, comfortable, safe….I don’t want it. I want teeth-gripping passion, unending curiosity, a grand and wild adventure. An everlasting love affair with life itself. I want that fist clenching, nails digging into your back kinda’ love, where a single moment lasts an eternity and nothing at all at the same time. Where every cell in my body is alive, just dancing with joy for this very breath. Passion is my blood, coursing through my veins like a raging river, full of that primal essence of life itself.
My emotions, delicious like a beautiful fragrance, arise organically when the flower is in full bloom. Sometimes smelling sweet and inviting, and other times just a tad bit bitter. Today I might feel like it’s time to play, and tomorrow to retreat. And that’s okay. It’s a part of my nature. Just like the ebb and flow of the ocean rises and falls, so do my moods, my energy, my emotions. I am human after all. I just want to feel. I want to feel the wind atop the highest mountain peak to play with my hair, and to let the moonlight dance upon my bare skin. I want to swim with the mermaids, and to giggle with the fairies in the forest. I want the ecstasy, the joy, the radiant bliss. Where my cheeks hurt for smiling so much for no damn reason at all, other than the fact that I am alive! I want it real. I want it raw. I just want LIFE…and I absolutely will not settle for anything less! ;)
I realize that I am a soul having a human experience, and that whatever I encounter in the outer world is a result of my inner landscape. I can and do create my reality every second of the day. The things I think, speak, and do are constantly creating and re-creating my future.
I have decided that it is time to leave behind my old fear-based mentality and bare my soul to the world. I will be using this blog more as a journal, and I will be documenting and sharing my spiritual, physical, and emotional experiences along this way.
I am about to embark on a real life journey to Guatemala. I will be an apprentice at the mystical yoga farm, where I will be immersed in the beautiful spiritual community there. I will be studying yoga, meditation, TRUE eco-friendly living, permaculture, and so much more.
Oh yeah, and one little tiny detail…there’s no electricity there! So goodbye blow dryer & straightener, and hellOoOo frizzy hair days! :) haha
I know it will be an AMAZING experience, but I really have no idea what to expect. Right now my stomach is churning with a mixture of feelings. From feeling so excited to anxious, nervous, a bit scared (I guess stepping out of your comfort zone is always scary). I see this as a major stepping stone for me. Once I’ve taken the first baby leap, the future jumps (to who knows where) wont be so scary anymore. I want to create a life that is one big, beautiful, love filled adventure…so here’s to the first step!
It’s about to get really REAL. No more waiting around for life to happen. Time to live the life of my dreams and love every second of it! LETS GO :)))

life’s a LIVING dream :)
Real confidence and real self esteem stems from presenting yourself to the world as the person that you really are, and going after the things in your heart that you know will help change the world in order to make it a better place. Being proud of who you are is being yourself on a daily basis, and showing the world that despite what popular opinion says and does, being yourself is the biggest most honest statement anyone can ever present to the world. - from “Your Inner Sparkle” facebook group <3
