One lovely Blog Award

This post is dedicated to my friend Roda who has nominated me for the lovely blog award. Once again I find myself humbled and yet so rich to have been consider worthy as a nominee. It just never gets old and I think it is a great way to support each other and bring exposure as well as sharing and discovery to the table. Maybe even some magic and if you have not yet checked out her blog at growingself from Roda you will be in for a treat. This is how she notified me about the award. 

Wow, right? So amazingly sweet and I do hope that she had just a little glimpse of how much joy she has brought to me, how much appreciation I have for her and what an incredible light she has been amongst this wonderful community. Be prepared to leave her blog smiling, visit to find inspiration and wisdom, as well as an overall wonderful feeling and gratitude that your paths have crossed. You will soon discover that it is people such as Roda that make all the difference. Thank you so much my dear friend.

Here are the Rules:

• Each nominee must thank the person who nominated them and link their blog in their post.

• They must include the rules and add the blog award badge as an image.

• Must add 7 facts about themselves.

• Nominate up to 15 people for the award!
Seven facts about me and let’s see what I can say, perhaps a little different. (I guess I just put the pressure on myself, way to go)

 1. I believe that I’m an old soul and often things feel all too familiar, even though I know that I have never experienced them.

 2. I have a passion for motorcycles, to the point that I choose my first motorcycle over a car. 

 3. Im an optimist and there is always a silver lining and a message that must be learned, no matter how bad it gets

 4. I’m a bookworm and love to hold and smell the pages of a book. Yeah I am that weird and I wear it proudly, so much that I am changing my stars late in life in the pursuit and hopes of becoming a storyteller. This blog has allowed me to do so as I continue to learn and grow into who I am ultimately are meant to be

 5. I believe in magic and it is all around us if we believe

 6. I dream of a thru hike some day in the near future and escaping all conventional norms. It will take something radical but it will be when I will most alive. 

 7. I love all creative aspects and it often serves as an outlet for my ever creating mind that takes me away to land far far away.

There is no pressure to participate or to feel obligated. I want to pay homage to the following blogs and share how much they have inspired me. Some new, with a variety of topics all close to my heart they deserve recognition and I’m honored to be given the opportunity to share them with you. 

Here are my nominations

Have fun discovering. Xo ❤



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
