Wild Divine Woman

Happy International Women’s Day to anyone who needs to hear it. As a woman who buys button down shirts from the men’s section in thrift stores, who barely understands make-up and who has therefore only ever experienced a crumbling sense of self after applying an unconvincing layer of foundation over my freckles, I tend toContinue reading “Wild Divine Woman”

Three Decades Strong (& Vulnerable)

Thirty. A year to wash my hands, pronounce myself clean, and finally – get on with living. Enter: vulnerability. Always never feeling adequate. Do the doves feel this? I wish I knew. I didn’t know much about turning thirty before I did. Life does surprise. At 29, one of my single greatest self-discoveries occurred whileContinue reading “Three Decades Strong (& Vulnerable)”

At the Edge of the World

Pouring cappuccinos, investing in fitness routines, quiet moments observing the ocean from my apartment windows, flowers. The fragile moments of security ballooning around the free flowing movements of uncertainty. The latex knot is tied but the pressure is almost unbearable to contain. I am in the market for faith. I searched for her at farmers’Continue reading “At the Edge of the World”

Coral is My Favourite Colour

Last Monday, I slung on the broad straps of my tote bag and slipped my bare toes into the welcoming cork beds of strappy Birkenstock sandals. Mid-morning slid into its 10:30am time slot and I was determined to relieve my busy thoughts with a panoramic view of the Coral Sea. Never before Australia did IContinue reading “Coral is My Favourite Colour”

Petals of a Flower

Young girl in pink- Come straight to shore. The current ripped,beat, sweltered, and tore us apart. A life long will of Itch, ache, reaction, and contraction before retreating back into my shell. I am not so hollow anymore. The entire earth is my word. Hold me firm,break my crust but please, spare my trust. TheContinue reading “Petals of a Flower”

And although you may choose the direction in which your road winds, are you truly ever capable of plotting out your best days ever? Sometimes, our happiest moments arise when we have surrendered complete control of plansContinue reading “Blue for Katoomba (Pt. III)”

Goal or Eternal Gaze? A Yoga Story/Video.

Flash back to December 2017 when I successfully graduated from a 200-hour Vinyasa yoga teacher training through a reputable yoga studio with multiple locations spanning across the Denver metro. As with any final project required to be presented for teacher-approval, I had spent too many hours worrying about the execution of my 15-minute yoga sequenceContinue reading “Goal or Eternal Gaze? A Yoga Story/Video.”

Just You Wait.

So, I googled the word “patience” today. It is a word that I enjoy tucking under the covers of my bed before sweetly cooing it dead-asleep. It is a word that I kindly refuse to accept second helpings of when an employer squashes my demands for more. It is a word that I conveniently disposeContinue reading “Just You Wait.”

Who Knows Where This is Going?

Will you walk backwards down the sidewalk with me? I ruminated on this rumor, —We can never trust in the future but we can find peace within ourselves. Peace so blind that it sees freedom. So, together, Can we release forward strides and plans well-devised? Implementing laughter as our standard protocol for every trip andContinue reading “Who Knows Where This is Going?”

Moving On

What do I know about moving on? Very little and quite a lot. I am still very much a woman who romanticizes the sweet smiles and tender kisses of past lovers. At 25 years old, I am barely capable of donating clothes bought for myself 10 years ago to the thrift store (I mean, c’mon, theyContinue reading “Moving On”
