Sunday Thoughts: What Do We Want Out of This Life?

What is it that we are searching for in this life that we're living?

The validation of others? The feeling that we’re making a difference? The undeniable beauty of watching the sunrise each morning and feeling life on your skin? 


We all search for different things and we grow with each day, coming closer to what it is we really desire. How do you stay on the path towards what you define as greatness?

Take time today to stop and think. Write it down. Bask in the glory of the unknown. 


As for me, I just want to love, create beautiful things and make a difference in the life of others.

Poetic Musings: Embracing the Super Moon

Each time the moon is full, a lunar ambiance draws me in like a stream in the heat. You entrance me in the same way.

One summer night, weaving through an endless field with warm air carrying my fears away, I saw you in your purest state. Patiently waiting, full of glory, I journeyed on. 

With all that I had and all that I lacked, you were ready to embrace me, reassurance that I was enough. That night, you opened your arms and brought me to the warm ocean. That night, I learned to truly let go. Drowning in awe, it felt like home.

Years later, I find you again, full in all of your glory. Now, you bring along distant memories. Now, you also remind me of him, synonymous in calling and the feeling of that embrace; reassuring that I am enough, just as I am.

My mind relives the ocean breeze; open arms, letting my soul rest with the calm of its sound. Filled with clarity and wonder, I’m comforted by the silence and the passion of your presence. 

Summer Self-Care

So far this summer, I've been focusing a lot on self-care and letting things manifest in the way that they're supposed to. Understanding that what happens in life, happens for a reason and when you work towards greatness and believe in yourself, goodness will come. It goes hand in hand with the thought process of letting go of things out of your control and embracing the sense of liberty and empowerment that comes with those realizations. I decided to share with you all a bit of what I've been up to this summer and what has been bringing me happiness. 

Upcoming Trips 

As most of you know, I started summer with a trip to Berlin, which was a wonderful experience. I've been in Murcia working for the past month and will be here until the middle of August but then I'll be adventuring on a solo-trip that I'm really excited about. I'll be heading to Oporto, Portugal for five days to recharge and spend some alone time exploring a new place. This will be my first solo-trip ever (surprisingly) but it will be so rejuvenating. Afterwards, I'll be spending some time in Madrid, Segovia, Ronda and possibly Santiago de Compostela for a few projects. 


For me, self-care ranges from waking up a bit earlier to take time for myself before starting the day or learning to say no to commitments that I don't feel passionate about. Self-care has also been about reflecting and envisioning, seeing where life has brought me so far and putting into the universe where I want to see in the future. 

Sleep has become has become a total priority for me and each night before bed, I try to disconnect and just be still. I make it a ritual to apply argan oil to my face, burn lavender and write as a great way to unwind and settle down. 

Organized Greatness

So, as you've probably seen via instagram, I was selected to test out the Mod Laptop II by This Is Ground, a brand that I've been admiring for a while. Well, as I mentioned before... the universe manifests itself and last week, my package from them arrived. Being someone that is always on the go between LMDES, WildSpice, travel and other projects... organization is so important. I've become a complete advocate of the brand and what they're doing as their products are quite revolutionary when it comes to style, creativity and business. Whether it's heading to my favorite cafe in town or packing for an upcoming trip, this is my new favorite accessory


What have you been focusing on this summer? How are you practicing self-care?
