We work so hard to get somewhere, to realize a dream, to arrive at some destination, that we often forget that though some satisfaction may be waiting at the end of our endurance and effort, there is great and irreplaceable aliveness in the steps along the way.

Step Onto A Path Worth Following
 

 

We are a world of unique and vibrant individuals, no 2 the same yet all sharing this journey. There are many aspects of this world that encourage you to disconnect and forget that you are here to have an adventure. You have been provided a vehicle unlike anyone else’s. You have the ability to power it up with the beat of your heart and the movement of your breath. Your mind can choose the path you take and it can use your senses to ensure that very same vehicle continues moving forward taking you on an amazing journey……
So why allow those who would have you sit on the sidelines, to take away this opportunity. The keys are in your hand, they always have been. You have as much fuel as you may need and you can take any path you want.

There is nothing you need to buy, wear, eat, do, say, own, to have experienced or seen… in order to be worthy of this life. You ARE the being we all should be so lucky to know. So instead of taking anymore time from your life to live up to some never attainable perfection, consider this…….

If you pause for a moment and breathe, maybe just maybe the waves will calm and you will be able to feel what really matters - Not the number of likes you got on FB, not whether you have this seasons blue in your wardrobe - You will know when the weight of stress has stooped your shoulders, you will know the headaches aren’t a punishment deserved but rather a tight jaw. You will know your partner is not getting on your nerves because they are a bad person……you simply were forgetting to breathe and see the beauty of life.

We have been trained to look at the big picture, buy potent remedies, get tweeked, dyed, taken apart and put back together and trust that everyone knows what we need better than ourselves. What if, maybe, just maybe…it is the smallest things that will make the biggest difference. A breath, a smile, a pause before moving forward, and when you stop believing someone else has the magic elixir that will make everyone see how amazing you are, that is when the fog will lift and YOU will begin to see the amazing soul you always have been.
