The Sweet Escape

I am a wanderer, a nomad, a citizen of the world…

…a traveling soldier, a truth seeker, a warrior of the light. I am an empath, an intuitive, a yogi at my core. I am a student, a teacher, a lover and a friend. If I could breathe underwater you would find me living on a reef in the ocean.

I am all of these things and more. In November of 2012, I made a decision that would change the course of my life. I left behind the life I was convinced I wanted and unknowingly started out on a journey that lead me back to me; the me I hadn’t yet met.

This is a blog about my life: raw and unfiltered. My travels: to the four corners of this earth. My spirituality: the journey to my truth.

I hope this is what you came here to find. Or maybe not. Either way, I’ll share my story with you.

The Sweet Escape.

upon my request

I died the day he left me. Actually, I am the one who got into the car and drove away. I resisted it fiercely but somewhere deep down I knew that I had to. After it ended, for me, there was nothing left. My whole life felt like it ended also, and in a way, it did. My...

confront the shadow, surrender within

    Is it possible that in repressing things about yourself that you don't like, you have also disowned potentially strong and beautiful aspects of yourself? Recently I have been shown how strong my fear/Ego is and I fought and fought against it so hard I was...

the comfort in my pain

    "What I would do to take away this fear of being loved, allegiance to the pain” -Flume I stop just before I get it. Whether it be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual, like some sort of self-sabotage, I stop before I get there. I was on my mat in downward...

dark. formerly titled: the mysteries of myanmar

    Dark. That's what it's been for the last 3 months. Dark. You wonder why I haven't written? I didn't have words. Writer's block is a serious and scary thing! The thing that was scarier was that there was just darkness, the absence of light...and absolutely no...

yep, soulmates

    I am going to talk about soulmates. I believe in soulmates. Not society's traditional definition...because they don't have to be romantic, they can be anyone. I believe we all have many different kinds of soulmates that we meet throughout our lifetime to help us...

boundaries, Buddha and bats

    Boundaries. A word I didn't learn the meaning of until I was 29 and I certainly didn't have any until then either. I am an empath, someone who is exceptionally empathetic, who feels incredibly deeply and who has an innate ability to feel and understand what others...

let it burn

    I'm not a photographer. I know, I know, everything after "I am" creates. But it's true, I'm not. I took one photography class in college and absolutely loved it. I can appreciate a good photograph but I never feel like I can capture that exact moment; I don't have...

to get to the other side

We've all heard the joke: "Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to the other side!" Ha ha. I never understood this joke but I also never really gave it any thought. Just before I started writing this piece it came to me: this is a lesson. The chicken crossed the...

a little bit of magic

I have been in Sri Lanka for 3 weeks. Magic has been happening every day. Is it this place? Is it these people? Is it nature? Is it me? Perhaps a combination of all of the above. Have you ever had that feeling that every event in your life has been leading you to...
