  i am not where you left me. i am all the places I have never been. - wilder ❂

I thrive on the energy of the golden hour. I pause on the bridge to soak in the morning haze on the river. I gaze up at the banyan trees with admiration. ⁣

I love cruising around the town on my bicycle. And cooking with garlic, sweet potato, broccoli, from the market.⁣

I feel full of gratitude for the company of those who communicate honestly and wholeheartedly. Their positivity gives me inspiration and support.⁣

I choose to seek out the good. I live for the moments of joy and clarity.⁣ .

Hurry Slowly. Take time, appreciate, keep moving. Do things with purpose not haste. Embrace time with a soft heart and a patient mind. All things are temporary, but It is a conscious choice to have hope; an important one for striding forward. Thank you to the people that give me hope, lift me up and teach me value not in gaining, but in letting go.

I used to fear change. It meant unfamiliarity, it meant losing a reality that I was comfortable with. When I made change happen, I started to let go of the attachment I had. Now I see that change is exciting. New people, new places, new ideas are all teachers in life. Children grow into adults and the years go by faster. The more changes I go through the better I feel about the time I’ve lived on this earth, in this body. Sometimes it hurts, sometimes it’s a struggle to figure things out, but when it comes down to it, change is necessary for survival.

cherish these moments. this time will pass. you will look back at now with only love in your eyes for your strong and vulnerable self. for time is fleeting and change is on the horizon. we cannot see in to the future, but no matter how much we yearn for answers or direction, we don’t need a brick path to follow. what we need, is to leave our footprints in the sand, the grass, the mud, and to find our feet as we go.

When you’re 300 months old and you don’t know where in life you’re headed, the only thing that makes sense is adventure. Here’s to uncertainty, and wherever life will take me ✌🏼

2️⃣5️⃣🌼🌺🎉Sun setting on twenty four. Looking back on my post last year, I set the intention to seek out new experiences. The universe has delivered, and despite the time feeling like it is racing by, I have achieved and experienced so much. I’ve worked hard, celebrated, explored, met people, said goodbye to people, tried new things, supported myself, stayed strong, been spontaneous, grown in confidence and become more comfortable in myself. No matter what happens, I have me. What will I have to say about 25?

Facing the world. We can never be fully prepared for everything to come but we will always be ready to face it. Our strength within will carry us through anything.
