Signs of Rocks and Bees, A Wild Story about Asking & Receiving

Signs of Rocks and Bees, A Wild Story about Asking & Receiving

How often do you stop and pay attention to the environment around you? Or better yet, how often do you pay attention to signs or patterns in your life?

I don’t know about you, but for me, I am in my head a lot. I tend to overthink, over-analyze, and pretty much drive myself (and others) crazy when it comes to making decisions or large commitments, or when I’m feeling lost in an area of life. The more I am in my head, the more frustrated and irritated I get. Luckily, I’ve done enough work in this area so I don’t let it linger too long. I try to remember that there’s always a choice. I can continue to allow myself to go through the cycle/turmoil or I can choose to do something about it.

The Year of Bold Freedom and Unplanned Adventures

The Year of Bold Freedom and Unplanned Adventures

2018 has been one of the most challenging, epic, and rewarding years I’ve experienced in my 34 years of living. And when I declared it to be the Year of Bold Freedom, I had no idea how much these two powerful words would impact each step I took along the way. I took more chances than I’ve ever taken; said Yes! to more adventures in life; allowed myself time to reset, heal, and surrender; and discovered what it is to be a confident, daring, and bold woman.

From Stella to Starlight

From Stella to Starlight

Today I handed my keys to Stella over to a new owner. When I started my nomadic journey in May, I gave up a job of 11 years, my apartment and furniture. I chose to not let go of Stella at the time because I wanted to test the waters and see how I liked nomad life. It was clear early on in Thailand that in order to stay committed to my intention of Freedom and Flexibility, I needed to let her go to make space for new opportunities to come.

Expiring in 3-2-1

Expiring in 3-2-1

On April 24, I packed up my apartment, sold my furniture and turned in my keys. Although it was temporary and knew my time would be expiring there, I embraced every moment of it. It was just the break in my cycle that I needed. And now here I am just 3 weeks later, sitting in a cafe in Thailand. It's a bit surreal. I find myself both in awe and in a trance; like at any moment I'm going to wake up and learn it was all a dream. I just pinched myself...so I know it's actually happening.

When to Jump

When to Jump

"Listen to the words playing inside you. Remember the person in the best position to decide something for you is YOU. No one else has the information that you have about yourself, your abilities, the talents that you might be hiding, the secrets that you have in your heart, or the experiences that have helped you or hindered you. Jumping is good. It’s euphoric; scary. But the Fear is outweighed by the joy of owning your own actions and taking responsibility." - When to Jump, Mike Lewis

Preparing for Launch

Preparing for Launch

The weight of all I’ve been doing is pressing on me as I prepare my heart for my second Wildhearted Retreat. This time around is different. Last year I wasn’t quite sure what I was wanting to get from the retreat, but was open to whatever would come. This time, I know I have to press inward and allow myself to heal fresh wounds and dig up ones that I’ve buried deep within. My stubborn side wants to hold on as tightly as I can and not give in or let others in. Safety tells me that I’ll be fine and that’s there’s no need to uncover my hurt, discomfort or disbelief in myself. It’s easier to keep it buried. As much as I want to keep holding on, I know I can’t. For my sake. For others. I’m not playing it safe anymore. I’m playing a bigger game in life. And it’s my turn to step up, roll the dice and see where it leads.

Journey to My Edge

Journey to My Edge

I pushed myself to the max during Yoga Teaching Training. My body, mind and soul transformed. I found both strength and heartache throughout the journey as we dug deeper and deeper into the meaning and philosophy of yoga. I shed many tears on and off my mat as I cracked open my heart and discovered so many truths (both hard and profound) about myself. And it only made me stronger. Suffice to say, I am not the same person that I was when starting this journey.
