Every day is a journey and I work hard to make my journey into a tool. When I was 19 and had just quit a 15 year soccer career I sat down with myself in honesty and asked, “What do I want my life to look like in 10 years?” The answer was that I wanted to be happy, not with objects or things but happy with myself. And then, I wanted my career to be based upon sharing these insights into real, pure joy with those around me so that we could live in a happier world. This blog is an expression of this tool that I have been sharpening along my own journey, my passionate love for the written word.
My happiness comes from a couple of key things. Being around plants and using them in almost every aspect of my life. Even my toothpaste is made with herbs. A regular yoga practice is another common topic on the blog, I just love the noodle feeling I get after I practice and the balance that carry off of my mat with me. Lastly it’s imperative that we all remain self reflective and I try to utilize this space for moments of self reflection that have revealed shareable aspects of the human experience. There’s also some recipes thrown in because I’m obsessed with figuring out the best way to cook and bake everything.
