I don’t know,
maybe I’m fucking crazy
But I swear I can feel the trees in my veins,
they are begging to take me home.
The wind is starting to become a part of me,
making love to my soul.
Maybe it’s fucking mad
But the birds keep talking to me,
they think I’m one of them.
My feet in the soil and I’m disappearing
I don’t know how much longer I can stand this,
the river might just take me home.
The only thing I ask,
is that you come with.
she told me of the birds
the way they tell her stories
whisper to her soul
she told me about their wings
feathers soaked in tears
she said they hold her secrets
and fly them overseas
it was madness and i knew it
i needed her.

If you see anything great in me I hope you see the freedom in my eyes. I hope it sets your soul on fire and makes you wild with passion. With desire. With hope.
I hope it inspires you to let go. To live and love fully. I hope it teaches you that in true freedom there is no ownership. No judgment. No control.
I hope it fills you with a childlike wonder. A new curiosity for the world around you. I hope you allow it to open your eyes to magic. To miracles. To beauty.
I hope it makes you question everything you thought was real. I hope you see that freedom is a choice. A feeling. A statement.
It may scare you, maybe make you shake with fear. It might make you go mad to find that true freedom cannot by be tamed. Controlled. Taken.
Still, I will give you all I’ve found to be real.
And I hope that you will let this freedom change you.
I will play you a song unlike any you’ve ever heard. I will show you the magic in the trees, the beauty of a bird.
I will slowly unwrap all the lies that you’ve been told, reveal to you why we mustn’t all fit the same dirty mold.
I will set your soul on fire with the passion in my heart. Teach you that you must let go long before you ever start.
I will carefully take apart your cage and set the pieces to the side. You will see that in true freedom, there is no reason to hide.
I will show you how to speak to the moon in a way that will make you cry. And when all is said and done, I will softly whisper goodbye.
Last night at yoga class the new instructor said something so simple yet powerful. I can’t remember her words exactly but it was something like this..
Those poses you just did are gone forever. The rest of the class doesn’t exist. All that does exist is right now.
We spend so much time thinking about the past, worrying about the future. What if we slowed down just a little. What if we appreciate the people around us. Take in the beauty of the trees, the flowers, the rain. Soak up the energy. Smile at strangers. Feel the ground under our feet and taste our food. Follow our breath through our body.
I am guilty of letting the present moment slip away. Not listening when others speak. Not appreciating the beauty that surrounds me. Worrying. Questioning.
Letting negative self talk and doubt run my day.
Today I make the choice to live in this moment. I will feel and love. I will smile and show appreciation. I will love myself as much as I love others. I will give and share. I will be vulnerable.
I will love this day.
Sometimes life is just hard. It hurts. It’s frustrating. It’s dark. Confusing. Maddening.
It’s these moments that I grow the most. It’s these moments that I have to search to find the light, reach for it and breath it in.
I have to step outside, feel the rain, the mud, the grass.et that energy run through my body. Feel that connection. Remind myself of what really matters.
It’s not money or acceptance. Power or perfection. I don’t find peace in being right or winning.
My peace comes from what some would call “the little things.”
Smiles and laughter.
Love and kindness.
Passion and risk.
Failure and perseverance.
New experiences and growth.
Compassion and freedom.
Curiosity and learning.
Some days are easy. Carefree and full of love.
Other days I must struggle to make peace with my demons. To love the dark as much as I love the light.
As I sit here, soaked from the rain and cold as hell I feel connected. I feel energized and in love with this very moment.
I am present.
Be curious, play with fire.
Ask a million questions, get dangerously close to the line.
Love without fear, and when your heart gets broken, love again.
Notice that every breath is an incredible miracle.
See the beauty in a strangers eyes.
Be passionate about everything you do. Don’t hide. Let that passion be contagious.
Take the risk, it’s worth it.
Embrace the mess that you are. The chaos, the imperfections.
Laugh loud and often.
Know that anything you need you can find within yourself.
Let go of expectations, doubt and worry.
Be kind. Not only to kind people but to all.
Stay wild and be free. We aren’t meant to live in fear.
Burn for what you love so much that when others are around you they can feel the heat.
I want to experience all of the beautiful things this world and it’s people have to offer. I want to exchange stories with strangers in different lands who live completely different lives than anything I could ever imagine. I want to hear their stories of love and loss, of suffering and joy. I want to hear about their conversations with God. I want to be filled with their memories, hopes and dreams. I want to know the history of their land and their people. I want to see the pain in their eyes, the happiness in their smiles, feel the peace in their hearts. I want to cry and laugh with them. I want to fight for their causes. I want to be captivated by the beauty of their soul, I want to fall in love with their cities. I want to swim in their rivers, explore their religions, play with their children. I want to dance in their streets and walk along their beaches. I want to watch their sunsets and make love under their stars.
I feel as if I already love every one of them and the places they live. Now I just want to know them, see them. To understand and experience them.
I want to experience all of this over and over again with an open heart, full of compassion, trust and understanding.
Today I ate the most delicious apple. The blue sky is the prettiest I have ever seen. The smiles of strangers are brighter and the air smells cleaner .
It never ceases to amaze me how wonderful things are when I chose to live in the moment. To really cherish every single thing that is happening right now. It is absolutely the best feeling in the world. I realize how beautiful life is. How everything that is happening inside of me and around me is all connected, it is amazing.
When I make the decision to live like this, wonderful things always happen. Complete strangers stop and talk to me, share things with me that I will never forget, smile at me in a way that lights up my life. It is incredible.
I urge you to love every single moment of your life, to really see the beauty in all things.
