WHY DID YOU START A BLOG IN THE FIRST PLACE?

I always had a passion for writing and kept a diary from little on. It was my confidant, something that always listened to me, even though it never spoke back. It knew my heart and my struggles growing up without a Father. It always had time for me when I was ready to talk (write) and it never judged me. Qualities that I still found missing in the real world as an adult. I decided to share my journey in the hopes of helping others who might struggle. To offer a different perspective, to show that it can be done and to hopefully inspire and motivate. Further I would like to become a writer (Storyteller) and this platform is a great way to see if anybody would even care to listen to my ramblings  😉

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BOOK?

This is very difficult to pick only one and if you follow my blog, then you know that I’m a bit of a bookworm. If I had to pick one for the sake of the “Now” and what is currently inspiring me, I would have to pick a recent book that my friend Kyle Rohrig has written after finishing a Thru-Hike of the Appalachian trail. This book inspires me beyond means and has been a key piece for me on my own spiritual journey of living to the fullest vs. being alive. It is down to earth as he writes in the same manner he would talk to you and it is a true testament to the human spirit and that anythjng is possible. It is full of dedication and discipline, a hunger for a life away from conventional norms. Inspired by comradeship and bonds, a means of finding what truly matters while being stripped down to a “less is more” theory, it showcases the adventures that will fuel the memories of a lifetime. It’s a must read for anyone who considers themselves to be an adventurer, hiker, freedom seeker or has questions on how to escape the routine and do more of what YOU like. Since completing the Appalachian Trail, Kyle and his Shiba Inu Katana aka Catfox have completed the Pacific Crest Trail and are starting their triple crown adventure of the 3100 mile long Continental Divide Trail tomorrow. If you would like to follow their adventures you can do so here at Boundlessroamad. Let’s cheer them on in the quest of a lifetime. 


 

WHAT DO YOU DISLIKE THE MOST?

I would have to say arrogance and entitlement while belittling other people. We are all in the same boat, we all bleed the same and it is not about cutting the next person down but rather lending a hand while helping each other. Nobody is better and we all deserve only the best. Life is tough enough but it’s also beautiful. 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FOOD AT THE MALL?

Mmmmh that is a tough one since I don’t eat at the mall. But if I had to, I’d probably have Chinese food to offset the fast food guilt with lots of vegetables and something halfway nutritional. 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PAST TIME?

Being on my own time to pursue whatever of my many interests peaks at that given time. I love hiking, writing, travel, photography, art, reading, music, my motorcycle, creating some sort of crafts, animals, knitting etc. It’s really limitless as I explore many different avenues to always discover new hobbies and favorite past times. I love to push the boundaries between reality and the fairytale that I try to encompass into my artistic expression. I’m a dreamer…..

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
