As I sit on the beach listening to the waves crash I find myself people watching and reminiscing. Being here five years later is a bit of an emotional roller-coaster. One I know I needed to ride in order to move forward in my life. One minute I feel a sense of joy and calmnessContinue reading “Gold Coast, We Meet Again.”
Where has the time gone? As I lay in a hammock on the beach listening to the waves crash I feel a sense of relaxation for the first time in weeks. I thought I was leaving for this trip to escape the 9-5 grind and be schedule free. However, that has yet to happen. Today is the first day which I can say I woke up refreshed after a full night’s sleep, with no alarm at 8 am and spent my morning how I wanted to spend it. Meditating, walking along the beach and really just taking in the last few weeks of chaos and reflecting on what I’ve learned.
Somedays I really wonder how women go through their entire lives with the pressures of society constantly on them.
Today I was chatting with an older women who was absolutely radiant. She looked happy as could be and was truly glowing. Yet the first words out of her mouth, to my surprise were “what ever you do don’t get old” – and let me just say I CAN NOT count the amount of times I hear this statement in a week. Mind you, I do live in a ‘retirement community’ (most likely because I am an old soul and I fit in here) but it still shocks me the amount of people who make growing old and even retirement sound DAUNTING.
What a week!
My vibration was ridiculously high this week which was no coincidence considering SUMMER SOLSTICE was on Wednesday!
For those of you who don’t know the summer solstice is the longest day of the year (meaning the sun is up in the sky longer than any other day of the year). It is the first official day of summer and it is a time to celebrate the light of consciousness. It is a time to reflect upon the potential for consciousness to awaken both in ourselves and within everyone else!
This is one of those books you constantly see popping up on Instagram. You probably noticed it a few times simply because it has a wicked cover. I don’t care what they say, I always judge a book by its cover! This book caught my eye and I am so thankful that it did. Elizabeth Gilbert truly changed my perspective on creativity and my current living situation (you know, working for someone else while living with a burning desire to be an entrepreneur).
Alright, it’s no secret I LOVE pizza. Unfortunately, my body does not love pizza. For years when I was younger I would feel sick after pizza which was related to my ‘lactose-intolerance’ according to the doctor. However, after doing a food sensitivity test, it was discovered that I am actually gluten and egg intolerant.
It’s half way through May.. where has the time gone?! I don’t know about you, but these past 5 months have been hectic for me. Two jobs, finishing up my last semester of school and starting my own business has kept me busy to say the least! I feel as though I was on an emotional roller coaster and I have finally gotten off the ride.
2 Week check in:
Well, these past two weeks have been an absolute roller coaster (I am ready to get off anytime now, thanks). However, I am thrilled to see how many people have reached out and asked me questions about why I decided to go off the pill.
