W stands for all things wild 

When I think of the letter W, various things come to mind, but especially things that are close to my heart. It’s for the first time that a correlation appears, that I’m connecting the dots and that I see a vision emerge about those things. I checked it off to coincidence, until something started to click and awareness set in. I’ve noticed that every single word associated with the letter W, in my mind and what they mean to me, all had something a little bit WILD about them.
For starters, my trip to the ocean is drawing closer and the adventure begins on Wednesday. No rules….
I think it will be a wild one and if everything fails, I’ll blame it on my hair that with certainty will take on something wild. I envision it already. Beachy waves, sea salt and the the sun. Wild enough right?
W is for wildflowers. Another thing I’m hoping to capture in my pictures is the exploding landscape that fills California with wildflowers. The added moisture from winter contributed to make the wildflower season extra prominent. It can be seen from space. How wild is that? Just imagine hillsides covered in bright yellow for poppies and purple for lupine. It has to be a sight to behold.

W also stands for the wilderness. I am a frequent visitor and like I said before “My soul is at home” in the wild.
W stands for the Wild West and that’s where I live. Wild horses roam free here and wander through the high desert plains.
Let’s see, the list goes on and W stands for the decisions and the choices we make daily. I know it doesn’t start with a W, unless you remind yourself to make a few of them some wild choices. Do something out of the ordinary, forget the normal boring and make a wild choice that keeps your heart beating just a little faster. I promise you that in the end, it will be those choices that stand out and bring the biggest smile back to your face. I admit it has become a little of a life motto for me, so it’s no surprise that it is reflecting on my Instagram account which is named wildchoicez as I continue to push the boundaries of those special moments.
W stands for the warrior within me, who wears the war bonnet from time to time and who had to be strong for as long as I can remember. For it is now that I share my journey in this blog and in the hopes to empower my beautiful sisters and women, as well as my warriors everywhere who choose to get back up no matter how many times they have fallen. To fight another day and to never lose hope. The war is won, one step at a time.

The first letter of wisdom, W finds a special place within my heart. Wisdom is trial and error, gained from experience and the will to listen and see. To search for the silver lining and the lessons that are to be learned. To embrace the struggle vs. letting it define you, as it is only then that you can grow as a person into who you were meant to be.
W stands for my wilder mind and I have been blessed with a wilder mind. To be able to realize the uniqueness that we each hold inside of us and to not be afraid to be myself. To see something special in everybody and accept and celebrate the diversity we bring to the table. You are no threat to me, there is no competition and our strength lies within our differences. It’s a beautiful thing.

 

 

Wonder starts with W and my wish for myself and everybody around is that we may never lose our sense of wonder. To see the world through childlike eyes and play with abandon to nourish our soul.
And lastly (I’m sure I’m forgetting something else), I celebrate my other “Wolfish Woman Sisterhood”. You have reached a point in your life where enough is enough. You have walked the path of experiences and you know who you are. Strong and confident, perhaps intimidating to some, even though it’s not your nature nor intent, you just know what you want and you will tolerate less. There is no more compromise for it is all or nothing and you are aligned with your highest self. You are awake and you found your voice. You will and have been heard. Wisdom runs through your veins to feed those who care to listen. Your a gypsy, a wanderer, a free spirit with a soul so pure but strong, that brave is the man who loves a wild woman. ❤

I'm a dreamer and hopeless romantic who believes that there is always a silver lining to everything. Now, inspired by the simple life, I have learned that less is more and that we find magic all around us if we take the time to notice. Life is a journey and a process that is ever changing. We are constantly evolving in the matter of who we are as we align our stars and shed a past no longer in line with our highest self. I don't easily fit conventional norms, not because I'm a rebel, but because of resenting the pull that threatens to take me away from my true beliefs and my unique personal identity. I support the power of "Choice" and the ability for us to be the architects of our own lives. Some of these choices should have something a little wild about them as they form the moments that forever stay edged in our memory and make our hearts beat with wonder. Nobody will remember the ordinary. For myself, I'm a warrior who has fallen many times, who has gone through trails an tribulations and who is no stranger to adversity. After all, my choice remains clear, to get back up and stand stronger than ever. To recognize that it often takes our darkest moments to mold us into who we were meant to be. I have learned to trust the process and stay positive through the challenges. I trust it to be the only way to prevent my heart from hardening and allowing bitterness to creep in. I believe in the power of "NOW" as it is the only moment we truly ever have. The past is gone, unchangeable and the future hasn't happened yet. All we can impact is the current moment. Everything starts with a choice and hopefully with one that has something wild about it and may even scare you to death to execute. DO IT...I promise you won't regret it. This blog is my voice to share my Journey. If I could describe this adventure in short, I would call it "Spiritual awakening" with a yearning for "Freedom" and going after the things that truly matter. To seek a less complicated life that is stripped down from the many obligations and responsibilities that often tie us down. For me it is a life free of rules and regulations, one that allows me to escape the must expectations while jumping off the hamster wheel that is spinning faster all the time. To be on my own time and live each day to the fullest, to make it all slow down by banishing routine and unleashing my creativity/artistic values in an effort to entertain whatever subject comes to mind. And if lucky, to perhaps offer a different view to my readers, one that speaks to your soul vs. the demands of what society might expect. It is one that empowers you to be your unique self and follow the beat of your own drum. I am dreaming big as I trail blaze the path to a new life and becoming a storyteller. I find my inspiration in the little things in life, in Mother Nature and on the trail that provides the adventures and the backdrop for a book someday. My hope is to inspire "Courage" in others who might find themselves on the brink of taking that first step. This blog serves as a foundation for my collection of personal thoughts, opinions and experiences and by no means am I an expert on any topics mentioned. To my readers I would say that the universe connects us by a common thread, we all search and we all have something to say. We don't always have to meet in person to share a strong bond and people enter our path for a reason. Some stay for a short time and serve their purpose, while others teach us a lesson and help us become stronger through experience. And a few special ones remain as the treasures we hold dear over a lifetime and touch our hearts beyond means. In whatever way we are meant to be, I thank you for crossing my path and for stopping by. I hope that I have left you inspired, full of wonder and with a few "Wild Choices" to make....Hugs XO
