If you don’t have a vision you’re going to be stuck in what you know. And the only thing you know is what you’ve already seen....Make your vision so clear that your fears become irrelevant.

Such a gift to celebrate another day in this human body on this magic planet😍❤🎆. It's been a 5th months of my journey. Little me in a Big world. Such a blessing it is to explore myself through different places, cultures, experiences and people. I practiced yoga early mornings in Himalayas. I spent hours in silence, meditating and thinking about life and death. I cooked, painted the furniture and cleaned. I talked to monks, politicians, artists, musicians and psychologists. I served coffee at 7am and danced salsa in the middle of the road at 10pm. I played with kids on the street and watched the moon on the empty beach. I cried because I was alone and scared and I cried because my heart was exploding from Universal love.
I learnt every day how to trust and let go. I wanted to give up and return "home" but then received the support and help through people that Universe had suddenly sent.
And I realized over and over again that Universe protects, teaches, guides and sends love through every person I meet.
THANK you mama and papa. THANK you Universe. THANK you everyone who I've met on my path. Today I wish you all to believe in yourself and choose to be happy.
Namaste❤😘 #nomadanna #littlemebigworld #25yearsofmybody#livethelifeyouwant
I really love this boondocking spot. Like reeeeeeaaaaaallly love it. Alas, I think I have to leave. The weather is wicked cold and only going to get colder this coming week. I did some research and if I head just 100 miles east of here I'll be free of those nasty freezing temps. I'm going to enjoy one more cold day here, be liberal with my propane heat and then I'm off to chase that sunshine again! 💖☀️✌️

Let’s talk about expectations. I’m going to be really vulnerable and tell you I struggle hard with this. I often have a vision in my head and then I feel disappointed when it isn’t met.
Holidays, especially Valentine’s Day & birthdays, have been hard. I LOVE holidays and they were made to be a big deal when I was growing up. Gifts + surprises are my love language. I love going big on celebrating holidays and making my loved ones feel special on days like their birthday and Valentine’s Day. Bassam comes from a different perspective. He didn’t grow up with holidays as a big deal. He scores 0 on gifts as a love language. For him, celebrations just don’t mean as much. Given our completely different perspectives, our expectations of what holidays should be like are very different.
I’ve spent many birthdays and Valentine’s Days feeling sad that Bassam didn’t “make me feel special”. I would keep waiting for a magical moment in the day when a crazy thoughtful surprise would happen and feel disappointed when it didn’t. Or if he did do something but it didn’t have as much thought as my personal expectation, I’d have a hard time seeing the thought that did go in.
This year I’m trying to do things differently. Here’s how I’m trying to go about it:
1. Remember that I can celebrate on my own & do all the things to make the holiday feel special to me without worrying about what anyone else is doing, even if that person is my partner
2. Realize it’s not personal. How Bassam feels about holidays and how he celebrates them isn’t a reflection of how he feels about me or what I deserve. That’s just his perspective on holidays and we can have different perspectives
3. Maintain a mindset of love, rather than a mindset of expectation. This way I can see what he does do with an air of love and gratefulness and see what he doesn’t do with love and gratefulness as well, rather than expectation that translates in disappointment
I feel nervous sharing something so personal that I’m still navigating and don’t have answers to. I hope it was helpful for you to hear as we enter a holiday that can be heavy on expectations. Let’s not let expectations get in the way of love 💕

Sometimes, you capture beautiful, magical moments like these 🔮
It’s where you go that matters.
It doesn’t matter where you’re from or what you’ve been through in the past. It doesn’t matter what you have done and what mistakes you’ve made.
What matters is today and where you’re going. Write your story from now on and make it a great one!
Share this with a friend who’s still stuck in the past.

It’s happening!!! We’ve got a contract on the house!!!!!!!! (Closing is scheduled for the 18th of March)
Sorry we went a little MIA for a sec. It’s been a bit overwhelming.. the things that need to be done. We’re so happy to be doing them though!
We had to alter our travels a bit to compensate for the $20,000 under our original asking price we’re getting for the house. But we’re so happy that it’s happening!!! .
So in general this is our plan. We’re thinking April in SC/NC/TN. Then up to our friends in MN for May. June through August on the top side of the western circle fall and winter on the bottom half.

REMINDER - Live life to the fullest!!⠀
Maybe it’s not even about having moments that take our breath away but it’s about the relationships you have with others and specially the one you have with yourself.⠀
Funny enough, my happiest moments have been quiet moments by myself. This is funny to me because I am an extrovert. I love the company of others, it energizes me to be around other people but maybe I am an introvert in hiding after all…lol⠀
I am a sucker for quotes, hope you enjoy this one.

In recent days I’ve come to realize a lot about myself and the life I want to create.
I don’t want to just travel, spend a week or two in a specific place. Take in the culture, try the food, experience it and then head home back to the “normal life”. I don’t want to say I’ve been there... I want to tell people I’ve LIVED it!
I did more than just experience, I spent 6 months here and I have a favorite farmers market guy and I’ve made lifelong friends in this place! I want to be able to say I’ve really lived!
What are you going to be able to look back on in your life?
Are your workouts getting you the results you are hoping for?⠀
I know how to work out. I’ve trained at many different styles of gyms, had personal trainers and have even completed personal training courses⠀
When I was about 4 months postpartum I was eager to get back into a fitness routine but I truthfully I didn’t really know where to start. It had been so long since I had stepped inside of a gym! Leaving the house as a new mom is already kind of a chore so I just wasn’t motivated to go. And also who was going to watch baby E?⠀
I had been following a coach for awhile and she had also just had a baby and was getting great results. At first I thought there’s no way you can look like that from a 30 minute per day workout, especially from your living room⠀
She approached me and at first I was hesitant but then said to myself, what do I have to lose?! The yearly membership was what I used to pay for a month at some gyms I had previously been a member at⠀
I immediately fell in love with the workouts. How could I not love being in the comfort of my own home, especially as a new mom! Messy hair in a bun, wear whatever, not having to worry about childcare. And I get to do it on MY schedule. No finding out class times and trying to make it on time⠀
Another win was that there’s no need to be concerned about your fitness level because there are modifications that make the workouts doable for anyone! They are challenging but seriously so much fun⠀
No more spending hours at the gym. Waiting for machines or feeling like you have no idea if you’re even doing the move right⠀
These workouts have changed the fitness game for me. Are you ready for a challenge?
