Listen. Trust Your Voice!


"Love is life. And if you miss love, you miss life." ~ Leo Buscaglia

A little good news to start off with ~ last Friday my partner and I eloped! Everything aligned and in one moment we decided to go with the flow of the universe. Within 72 hours of deciding, we followed our hearts and got married! It was a lovely day! For photos - find me on facebook and friend me :)

When I think of the last two years and how freeing it feels to have distentangled myself from my life of shoulds, it is very clear to me that I have to be very clear on what I want.

I think that before and for so long I would say things like, "Oh, it doesn't matter" or "This is just the way it has to be" or "This is what they want - it is just easier" or "It's okay it isn't that important."

I lost my voice. I lost what it was that I really wanted. And I lost the faith and belief that all was possible.

I remember one time I walked into a small bookstore and said to the clerk, "I need something (pause), can you help me find meaning?" How odd and sad I must have looked standing there. I remember the tears filling my eyes and the intense feelings of helplessness.

"Every time I've done something that doesn't feel right, it's ended up not being right." ~ Mario Cuomo

Little did I know that this moment and many others similar during this very dark period of my life, created a place for deep gratitude, appreciation and desire to live a purposeful, happy and peaceful life.

Follow your heart! Listen to your voice! It will lead you to great places!

Thank you for your time today ~ Enjoy!

Embrace Your Life!!
