Better In Time

"The only thing that is constant in life is change." A simple quote I've heard time and time again, that I never paid much attention to because I never connected to it quite in the way I have now. It got me thinking: If this is true, then it is also true that time heals … Continue reading Better In Time

The Light at Rock Bottom

"Just when you think it can't get any worse, it does." This seems to be the anthem of my life and the motto for this year. In other words, rock bottom has a basement. In fact, 2017 has been the most difficult year of my life (that is saying a lot) and the past few … Continue reading The Light at Rock Bottom

Spiritual Freedom

Since my awakening in 2010, I have considered myself to be a free spirit in the sense that I never really felt that I quite fit into this society, but I discovered an inner light and my soul greatly resonated with the ideas of living a life of freedom, charisma, deep love and simple joys...although … Continue reading Spiritual Freedom

Blank Slate: Lifestyle Minimalism

A little less than one year ago I began my journey into a simple lifestyle by diving headfirst into the world of de-cluttering and minimalism. (Read about the beginning of my journey here). Today, I would like to reflect on that simple choice and how it has grown into a lifestyle, and talk a little bit about … Continue reading Blank Slate: Lifestyle Minimalism
