Be fearless

Change… something I know is good for me. Something that I have cultivated for myself over the last two years especially, living in one place for no longer than typically 3 months. I want to learn different jobs, have new places to explore; I want to escape the mundane. I want to look forward to…

Aum, you are perfect

“When the dust settles. And you can finally look in the mirror. At the woman. Who survived through it all. Through the failures. Through the flaws. You’ll realize. That even as fragile as you are. You are unbreakable.” – Unknown How have I gotten here? A year later sitting in the same tattoo chair in…

Angels accompany us

The buzzing and lack of routine of a traveler. The people that amaze you from this side of the world – sharing all the snacks in their bag with you, like a mother, although we’ve just met – and the life long friends you’ll make that you would never have had crossed paths in the…

This gift of life

I’m packing up my room now, again — (I’m heading off to Nepal on Wednesday – my love — I am so humbled and excited to receive the volunteer coordinator position with All Hands Volunteers),  and of course this means finding old journals and papers and having sometime of mad reflection.

Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti

Let’s say work, where we spend most of our time can definitely have a large affect on this happiness. The city you live in….

That’s so Indonesian!

   The sky cracks open- loud and threatening. The pounding of the rain on the roof which hits the pavement, a welcome and defeating patter that drowns out the sound of life – except for some voices of children that never seem to stop. The trees sway and again the sky says QUIET to all…

I set down my roots just to rip them up again

     I’m not ready to say goodbye to koh Tao yet. I want to stay and enjoy the luxuries here. I love my outdoor yoga at grounded, drinking coconuts and matcha on the beach, walking home to my bungalow on sandbars, my cat waiting for me on my porch, eating at all my favourite…

To love and be loved 

   2016. As we draw near to celebrating the new year, we all often tend to do a lot of reflection and projection. I think back to 2015, and how I celebrated New Years last year and that feels like just a blink away. 2015 has been a great year (I became vegan!!!!)   At the…
