You are the sound of rain at night.
You are the wind that moves me
In and out of an utter state of bliss.
You are the period after my sentence
And the space between the lines.
You are warm steam in the morning shower
Caressing my body and trickling
Down the curves.
You are the light at the end of my tunnel
- If I ever did have a tunnel.
You are the air that helps me breathe
And the shine that makes me mine.

An ode to the happiest little moments in my daily life.

Before I start each hike, I hold an intention in my heart and mind. It’s usually a silent intention to myself, like “I will become stronger, and more resilient” or “I intend to answer a question or a feeling that’s been on my mind for awhile”. This time at Yosemite, my intentions were geared towards my uncle who recently passed away. I fully breathed in the cold air, and felt the warmth in my lungs. I let his memory guide me for 9 miles. To be alive and well is an understatement. It’s easy to feel transfixed on a routine time and place. It’s easy to forget the good things in life, the things we take for granted. Breathing. Walking. Thinking. Going out in nature reminds me of that. It reminds me to let go of things I can’t control, and to enjoy the simplest things like a breath of fresh air or the way the sun sets. Any intentions lately you’d like to share?

Today was about conquering fears, hiking up a 5 mile incline, and spending time with some badass women @tiffanniechang (who you can see peeping out here), Jeet (who is too cool for insta), and the beautiful @amychangg 🌿 Excited to spend the three day weekend in YoseMIGHTY. Also shoutout to Jeet for taking this stellar iPhone click 🤘🏼(proof you don't need an expensive DSLR to make photography accessible)! Peep into my story for some insight.

I first met Bianca @danceyourownadventure a few months ago while shooting sunset at Baker Beach. Her movements against the sun was pure magic - I just had to ask if I could shoot with her. Stoked on this new collaborative relationship, and on meeting this inspiring woman. I encourage everyone to meet the people that draw you in, you never know what their lives and stories might hold 🌿✨

Lost a family member this week. I keep thinking sorrow is the pain that never was, and never could be. Solitude kicks in and the pain becomes a predecessor for the numbness. The numbness that helps you live in an unfair world where you learn to withstand even the tallest of mountains that want to uproot you. Like sand blowing in the wind, it hits you in little pieces: • Losing someone is never easy. • I miss you, and I don't think I fully knew you • I miss your piece in the world and the people you have touched, and the people you will continue to touch through your children • I have lost a part of my family I will never get back • I wished I understood the parts of my language and culture to speak closer to you • I wish I heard you play the flute • I learned the flute because of you • My words cannot erase the sorrow and beauty of your life, but I remember you and I love you • You were a light in this world • Rest in peace to my dearest uncle, you are loved and missed

This is late, but let's all gawk at the beauty of my friend @krystlemarina 🙏🏼 I set out this year to capture some of the inspiring people in my life, especially women who are killing it. You can read more about Krystle, her modeling, her YouTube channel, and her wedding planning on the journal now (link in bio).

The perfect mix between LA and NY. No idea how I got here, but pretty grateful that I did. Where are you in the world?

I used to think we were staring at the same stars // but here I am giving back what was never mine.

Every person that you meet is a blessing. The time that you share with them changes your walk of life, your thoughts, and your perception of the world. At the beginning of this year, @lauren.ito held an intention circle, a space to reflect on 2017 and goals for 2018. After we finished the session, I came out with a newfound acceptance for the way I am, and the relationships I crave. I'm starting to become more aware of how my actions affects others, while also letting go of the perception of pleasing others, and the things I can't control. If you know me, you know I'm always striving to be a better person, but that can't happen without people like Lauren who inspire me to become better in every way. I'm a huge believer in surrounding yourself with people that inspire you. 2018 has already been a time of evaluating myself and the relationships I am seeking. If I've spent one on one time with you this year, I really look up to you, and am super grateful to be friends with people who deeply care about other people 🙏🏼 Photo taken last weekend on a trip to Sausalito and the Marin Headlands.

2 0 1 8 - The year where I let go of the desire for it to be the best year yet. The year where my intentions and actions are honest representations of how I feel. The year where I finally let go of things beyond my control. The year where I practice being in the moment. The year where I become fully aware of my influence in this platform and push for more authenticity. Picture taken in November of last year at a quaint trail by Baker Beach (it's currently raining right now in SF and did I hear something about a tsunami warning?!) Hope you're all having a good start to the year. What is one resolution of yours?

Swan life 🕊
