Traveling On A Budget

travel post

Live your own Eat Pray Love

Good Morning! Looking back, I’m sad to say that I didn’t make it to my 30 day challenge. Writing every day is much harder than I anticipated. However, my new goal is to keep up with posting now that school is over and I have more time!

As some of you may know, I’ve been doing quite a bit of traveling lately and plan to continue to travel after my stay in Hawaii this summer. It honestly feels like a dream come true being able to explore all the places I’ve dreamed of going. The universe is truly abundant and aligns you with your deepest desires if you’re in tune with yourself. This lifestyle is one I’ve always longed for, but never felt achievable due to circumstances. However, I’m a firm believer that if you want something in life, you just need to make it a priority and make it happen.

Day 4 – 30 Day Writing Challenge

day 4

Good Morning,

Do you ever have those mornings where you wakeup and you’re already in such a good mood? Maybe it’s the fact that it’s the weekend, or maybe it’s because my brother is here from out of town. Regardless, I can tell that today is going to be a great day!

On my drive up to visit my family, my thoughts centered around the idea of selfishness. Selfishness, not in the sense of self love or self care, but in the desire to achieve personal gain and recognition in every situation.

Day 2 – 30 Day Writing Challenge

Hi friends,

I almost didn’t write today because i’m feeling kind of tired this morning. ( Can you believe that, it’s only day 2 lol ) But i’ve got my cup of coffee and i’m ready to take on the day!

I was thinking a lot yesterday about something. I came across a situation where some people were talking negatively about others. Granted, in this particular situation the person they were talking negative about was being extremely rude and might have deserved it. However, talking verbal negativity about this person immediately brought down the mood of the group and seemed very pointless. It was not solving any issues directly, only creating slander and perhaps starting more issues. The actual situation they were mad about was over for 30 minutes but they continuously brought up how the person was wrong and how “stupid” they were. This made me come to a realization…

Day 1 – 30 day Writing Challenge

Good Morning,

Starting today, I am going to hold myself accountable to write for at least 10 minutes a day each morning. The actual time may vary depending on the day, but for the next 30 days this is my goal. I’m doing this for many reasons and I would get off track if I explained them all now. Generally speaking, I feel like it’s important to allow time in the day for self reflection; to just stop and detach from all the things you need to do to focus on whats going on inside.

So what is going on this morning?

Humans are Weird – Life is Weird

Humans are weird

I’ve been thinking lately – the most ironic thing about life is that humans spend so much time preparing for it, trying to fix it, complaining about it, or being too busy to even live it. In reality, the moments that mean the most and the situations that inspire us are those moments that we are just at peace, living completely in the moment. Could life really be that simple?

When we were children, each day was an adventure. What If we lived today and each day with that same mindset of curiosity and wonder? How amazing would life be if our main goal was to just wakeup and enjoy each day? I think that in today’s society, it’s almost seen as irresponsible to enjoy life. For some, even the thought simply enjoying the day brings up excuses like ” I can’t do this because ___ ” or ” Yeah, that easier said than done. It’s almost impossible to enjoy life when ____ ” It’s so unfortunate that we’re taught to set ourselves up for life and not live it. It’s not considered “normal” to live with the sole purpose to create something beautiful for the sake of enjoyment, make art daily, and spend time with loved ones. But why not?

Momentum

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

 

Hello everyone!

I’m back from the dead! “insert laughing emoji here*

No but really, it has literally been FOREVER since I wrote a post. I’m not going to lie, the main reason is because I haven’t been as inspired now that my schedule is more full. Between school, work, and now dancing; I leave the house at 7:30am and get home at 10:30pm.

This is a huge change from last semester; where I had the majority of the mornings/ afternoons to myself. I am, however, thankful for my busy schedule because it forces me to be productive. Oddly enough, this is when I am the most at peace and relaxed.

Running To Get Nowhere.

rocks-in-the-wheel

We are always so busy and always in such a rush these days as humans. When we go so fast during our days trying to accomplish everything we forget what is important and to take a step back. We completely lose ourselves.

I wrote this during one of those times.
