This is the tale of a girl who is always looking for inspiration and ways to connect herself to others. She dreams often and when she dreams it is global. She looks for hope in every face and loves little treasures with a deeper meaning of faith and love. That is why she couldn’t pass up the change to posses a piece of culture and prayer from across the the world. A Buddha statue and Tibetan prayer wheel were being sold by a family who relocated to the states from Nepal. A place where the culture is so rich and faith is everything. Hand to hand and soul to soul the exchange took place. The tiny treasures that had traveled so far became her own. It was as if she too had been there to experience the people, the culture and the treasures that put a girl on a budget at risk. She laughed at the thought of being in the red because she knew that it was so worth it.
The best time to act is when opportunity presents itself, another chance may never come. The dreaming part matters! It can take you places you have never been and will never physically go. You are on a journey much like this girl who dreams too much. Don’t let opportunity pass and experinces be waisted. Plant the seed and then let it bloom. Let your dreams run free and your spirit soar. Life is truly worth it and so are you.

Have faith in the universe and yourself. Good things are on their way.
soul to soul-jj
Have you ever felt like you were stuck in one place- just like a fly trapped on a piece of flypaper? A time when you could see your surroundings and knew where you wanted to go but just couldn’t get there. Have you ever just taken that leap of faith no matter what it cost, even if it meant ripping yourself free of the sticky paper and losing a wing or tiny piece of yourself? Did you do it? Was it worth it?
It has been one year since I did just that. I was working in a place that was killing me. It wasn’t the job so much as the people. They were life suckers- you know the kind – hate themselves therefore can’t stand to see anyone else happy. The place was toxic and I was becoming a person that I didn’t recognize. So…. I closed my eyes, cut the cord and then took a giant leap. It was so painful and really scary but it has been an amazing year. No, I am not technically, gainfully employed,yet, and I haven’t made any huge strides. But I think I know myself a little better and I’ve explored life so much more. The passing of a year has made me reflect on what I really want. It has forced a question of reality; what can I achieve? I would like to say if you believe it -you can achieve it. Hmmm is that really true? I guess I have to say that I’m still a work in progress but I have no regrets.
Share with me a leap that you took or would like to take. Tell me what your inspiration was or is. Where did you get your courage? We have to be brave in every tiny step or giant leap we take. Have faith in the universe and show us brave spirit. I’m looking for a little boost of inspiration in your stories to get me over that one year hump. Inspire me with your dreams. I am daring you to unleash your passion. Tell me what your journey felt like- Inspire me.
