As things begin to open and vaccines are distributed world wide..... I realize how little I have written in the past few months. I have photos to share - stories- adventures - questions- as we keep pressing forward in the most uncertain of times wondering where normal begins and ends. We saw riots and movements and hatred - lockdowns - homelessness- Isolation and so much ugliness this year that It’s okay to feel a little lost. All we can ever do is meet it all with love.
Even the little things - I miss writing and need to carve time out soon ....
I love photos and acting and art - creative people - new friendships -
My brain has felt a little respective lately..... Love - Light - Beauty blah blah hopefully will have some creative new sparks and ideas to share soon
Until than - I’ll be somewhere exploring this amazing place we call earth
So I haven't been on here much lately or any social media for that matter. I am finally starting to make a little bit of a comeback after taking a much needed breath of fresh air. In this time of Masks and quarantines and social distance it has been really difficult on a lot of people. I feel that everyone has suffered some kind of loss in this period of time. Relationship, Family, Friendships, Career, Etc. Etc. It is a scary time and if you are feeling a little lost you aren't alone. So many of us feel especially vulnerable right now. Exploring other options with career path etc. It has been a huge time of expansion and growth. My life has changed a lot over this quarantine period. My travel plans, Work plans, Life plans, Work out plans were all completely disrupted. It has taken a lot to attempt to stay centered and open to all the incredible blessings this period of transformation has had to offer. I finally was able to get outside for a few days after spending most of my Quarantine inside City limits. I was feeling incredibly frustrated and taking a little space allowed me to understand all of the gifts I had received during this uncertain time. Friendships had deepened or fallen away giving me clearer understanding of who mattered most in my life, I had taken space from social media and "The Industry" showing me what I had built where I lacked and needed focus, I had slept for the first time in my life, and healed pieces of the past. I had learned boundaries in what was safe for me to do and what wasn't and enjoyed talking to other artists. LIfe is always changing and this is no exception but I think its more important than ever to take time to feel the gratitude for what we DO have. So maybe Life isn't what you thought but there is an opportunity for it to become something even better.
As life slowly returns to normal. be kind to yourself. The world just went into a lockdown it's okay to need a breath while you readjust. Love yourself. Take your time.
I miss traveling!!!!!!
I am so thankful to have worked on this amazing project. We really took this travel van across America. It was so incredible. I feel so blessed to have been a part of such an incredible project.
Life right now is all about finding the hope. Remembering the good times and adapting to everything thats changing all around us.
Love and Light.
As someone who likes to travel I have been mourning my travel plans but also finding other ways to explore the world from home. Googling places I have yet to visit, Things I want to know about, and falling into the traps of online shopping knowing I am not going to checkout. (inspiration, inspiration, Inspiration) Sometimes when I fall into an online portal I get frustrated with myself and judge myself for not using the precious time I have been given to the best of my capabilities. OR doing things in the "wrong" order. Truthfully even online shopping can be an opportunity to learn about your likes and dislikes and although life is precious and it may seem silly to fall down the online rabbit hole we are human and these things do happen. Especially while staying "safer at home." I never thought I would live in a world where even going for a jog around the block would become a luxury - I have been lucky enough to live a life outside of war zones and within countries that have remained relatively free. It is such a reminder to always be Thankful for everything we have even when it feels like we don't "have" much at all. If anything I really hope the quarantine allows us to evaluate our relationships and value the people who checked in out of love rather than boredom, As well as to native the impact humans really do have on our environment. This is a chance to change, meditate, grow and heal in so many ways. It is up to us to take advantage of this pause and nurture ourselves. Change can be scary, As can illness - but by working together to change our bad habits I really believe we can change the world. Maybe this is just the first step. My heart is with all the victims of this terrible Pandemic.
Love and Light have an amazing day.

During this world wide quarantine - We have an opportunity to sit with ourselves. To quietly reflect on our friendships, relationships, jobs, bodies, Etc. As scary as this may seem the earth is finally taking a breath to recover and giving us an opportunity to grow. Never loose hope. There is so much good all around us. Even in isolation. We create the change we wish to see.
Let the sunshine in. Love, Love, Love
Sometimes fear stops us from taking our first steps. Self created judgments and barriers holding us back from our limitless potential. Sometimes plans change. I had been planning an adventure to Japan but recently my travel plans changed. Instead I want to devote the time to my craft, tying up loose ends from last year, Projects, self work, and actualize a lot of the self work I have been practicing the last few years. I don't always know what will happen next - Life is a never ending adventure and sometimes our directions change. Be open, Keep believing, and Love with everything you have. My mom recently reminded me "That even in the darkest moments the light always finds a way to crack through" I felt like
There is no place I would rather be than outside. I have always loved nature and my experience in Florida was absolutely spectacular. - Fan boats, Gators, Manatees, The wildlife in Florida reminds me of something in a dream...........
My adventure to Florida wasn't a typical party occasion. I stayed in a Travel Van - and explored the everglades although I did have one night out in Miami. We got extremely lucky with with the wild manatee heard we were filming with, Paddling 20 miles with heavy gear and I have never met such kind folks along the way. I felt truly blessed for this amazing incredible adventure.
I was working with a photographer and he turned to me and said “you don’t have to hide your sweet side from the camera so much” - If it wouldn’t have ruined the shot - I might have cried. So often in life we are forced to pretend to be “Tough” to be “Strong” - To appear as though we are constantly "in control"". It is so important not to lose touch with your beautiful and sparkling vulnerability and to be able to let it shine. Trust is everything. Trust in the process - Trust in yourself - Trust in your partners.
Currently letting go of everything that no longer serves me...... and learning to fly.
I still make mistakes.
I still choose to get back up and start again.
Life is a process...........
Truthfully, the only person who can create the life you Wish for, Long for, Yearn for..... - is you. The beginning of any journey or self transformation can be scary ........ But it all begins with you.
The worst thing we could ever do in life is to lock our beautiful unique selves away in an effort to be like everyone else.
On a more pressing matter where shall I travel to next?

Those who know me know I am someone prone to wander lust ...... Or ending up on an adventure. However even I was surprised to find myself in Salzberg Austria in the middle of a National Park...... Certain towns are only able to be visited by Bob Sled ..... and Austrian winter is no joke. I found myself borrowing gloves, socks and undergarments from friends trying to keep out the chill.
This place is a paradise for anyone who likes to ski/ snowboard and I found myself at the Felsentherman Bad Gastein (The Hot Springs) speaking with many travelers across Europe who had come for the co- ed Saunas as well as the Baths. The baths are magical and my skin was almost instantly clear.........
I didn't know much about the history but soon learned about the prince - and princesses - as historical landmarks were everywhere throughout the tiny mountain towns - There is even a waterfall in the middle of the city ....... of Bad Gastein.
Because Im not the worlds most accomplished skier (I lean towards snowboards and the conditions became advanced quickly I found time to meditate onto of a mountain. I felt so at peace with the beauty of my surroundings. Nature is precious and needs us to protect it - places like this are very special and will always have a place in my heart.
IS there anything else you want to know about my trip in Bad Gastein? I still have to make a post about the secret club we got into for New Years :)
It really is a remarkable place and I would recommend visiting just make sure to bring something warm!
