My Full Moon Affirmation Cleanse

With the energy that came in the month of October, I can say that this energy has impacted my life greatly. It has brought me to my knees and one point and I had to get myself back up and believe that everything has a purpose and I am grateful to simply be alive every morning. That’s why at the end of this month, this full moon has great meaning to me, and I believe it may to a lot of people, as the energy this month has been a little weird. It is important to verbally remind yourself of…

The Adventure Destinations

I am excited for so many things to come during this adventure, but of course the most exciting is going to be experiencing the beautiful locations and nature around us. We have an elaborate plan as to how exactly we’re going to travel these six states and they’re amazing natural wonders. We would like to keep things as spontaneous as we can, knowing that we are never on a timed schedule so we can slow down and really soak in every moment. Though we have a detailed plan, we are open to new ideas along the way. We currently reside…

My Strides Towards Minimalism

Recently, I watched another documentary (I’m a big fan of documentaries) called Minimalism. I would say that it was this documentary that changed my outlook on life, but it hit me like a load of useless junk laying around in my house! I just needed that extra push, I needed that extra knowledge. I have never been a hoarder, collector or shopaholic; but I did buy things for the simple reason that it is cute, I guess you can call that being a woman, or simply being a human in modern society. The very next day, my boyfriend and I…

My Choice To Be Grateful

A long time ago, I had saw a documentary called, The Secret. This documentary spoke about the law of attraction and the power of the mind. The main thing to take away from this, is that you attract what karma brings to you with your thoughts and emotions. When I had seen this, I may have changed my point of view for a day or two and then kind of forgot about it and moved on. But recently, I stumbled upon this again and decided to watch and see if I understood it differently now.   Maybe it’s my state-of-mind…

The Adventure Announcement

It has been only three months since I have graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism. Since then, though I have not yet moved forward in that field, I have discovered a great deal about myself and a great deal of the world in adulthood and the time “making a living” consumes. I adore the job that I have, though I need more time for myself and my passions. Many people probably feel this same way but let it go, but I will not. I am a woman with a vision and a deep wanderlust, no worldly struggle or discouragement…

Am I Appropriate Enough?

Since childhood, we have had an imprint in our minds of what’s right and what’s wrong, appropriate and inappropriate. Of course manners are learned to teach common respect and some common sense, but I think what is wrong and what is right can be altered by everyone’s opinion. Therefore, once you develop and decide who you are in this world, it is your own opinion to decide if what you do is appropriate. As a current student in journalism, I currently am being told and having to respond to what is considered appropriate as a journalist. What to wear, what…
