Miami, Fl – WHERE I FOUND MY STRENGTH

Miami, Fl – WHERE I FOUND MY STRENGTH

Life is changing. 13 months is the time I spent in Miami. I experienced every emotion over this past year. They ranged from never wanting to leave, counting down the days until we could move out, to being in such a state of confusion I wanted to just rewind and start all over. It was […]

Portland, Oregon – A Trip for My Soul

Portland, Oregon – A Trip for My Soul

I didn’t realize what trouble I was having feeling grounded until I got there. Until my shoes were on the wet and dirty sidewalks with the crisp cold air hitting my face. I needed to get back down to earth, to look up at the trees, feel the air and just breathe for a bit. […]

Embracing the Unknown

Embracing the Unknown

For the first time in my life I feel like I am okay with not knowing. I am okay with not having a plan. I’ve experienced so much over the past year. Living in Miami has taught me a lot. It has taught me that life is more about how your living than where you […]

A Note to My Future Self on One of the Bad Days

A Note to My Future Self on One of the Bad Days

Having a bad day does not mean you are failing at life. You’ve had to get used to the fact lately that you are in a stressful stage in your life. You are going to have more bad days than good and that is okay, you can even be happy despite it. Since you were […]

Allowing Yourself the Right to be Happy

Allowing Yourself the Right to be Happy

Happiness is a choice. Although I knew that, time and time again I declined the invitation to happiness. Over the past few weeks my attitude towards life has changed drastically, seemingly overnight.

The mind can be our most powerful tool in life. The thoughts we allow and the thoughts we don’t all have a profound effect on us. Through the awareness of this I have learned to be happy with darkness, with failure and with stress. Every experience I have has its place in my life. I […]

Life, Balance and Living in the Present

Life, Balance and Living in the Present

Life is about finding balance. Finding balance in rest and in movement, in preparing for the future while enjoying the present, and in being thankful while striving for more. The struggle will always be there and it is something I continue to find myself in the middle of. I’ve spent so much of the last […]

Finding Clarity in the Midst of Chaos

Finding Clarity in the Midst of Chaos

This past month has not been the easiest for me. It has left me doubting almost every decision I have been making lately. Did I quit my job to soon? Did I overreach with my cost of rent? How am I going to survive the next month? Okay, maybe I can make it another month […]

Finding Connection in All Places

Finding Connection in All Places

When I sit by the sand, when I hear the waves of the ocean, when I smell the salt in the air, I know that I am where I am supposed to be. The beauty, freedom and power the ocean holds is all that I wish to find within myself. I am endlessly thankful I […]

Finding Gratitude on your Journey through Life

Finding Gratitude on your Journey through Life

We are all searching for our place in life. Trying to find “our” people, trying to find the “right” job, “right” neighborhood to live in, the list goes on. But why live like this? Why not learn to just be? Be within ourselves and only grow into our truth not away from it. It is […]
