This shot reminded me of the reclining Buddha. Sunyata is loosely translated as being in a state emptiness, which depends on the context in which the word is used.

“I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good, either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be.” || Roald Dahl
This is me for the next bit 🌲
That beautiful bit of beachy bay in the distance holds space for my daily run and yoga obsession. Im living as a part of a hippie/permaculture community and look forward to our interactions and my growing understanding of taking care of our pretty world, every day. I have found the two most wonderful jobs at a café and brewery working amongst incredible and welcoming humans in fun flowing environments. It’s quite a small little town ringing in at around 3,000 people. Days start late and end early by most standards & as you pass people on the street you find no shortage of joyous acknowledgements. I already feel a part of the small town big love. Thank you Denmark, I never want to leave! .
I am so grateful and beyond words blessed for all the positive activity and opportunity that ive been given in my life recently. I believe that we manifest ourselves to where we are through experiencing our millions of moments with an open mind and heart. They can range and vary in the personal affect and overall appearance they take in our lives. Some weigh us down, really weigh us down and others make us feel light as a feather. We don’t always get to choose what experiences we have but I do believe we encourage the motions by our attitude and perception of these moments. Holding space for and finding comfort in what we do not know and cannot understand. All of these pieces somehow interlock and fuse together in our lives and I can only imagine that if we flow through them and support what is and has happened that it will help to mold & strengthen us moving forward. .
After receiving some rather heartbreaking news from back home this last week I have certainly had a lot of heart ache with viewing the world this way. However, I have found that in viewing the world this way it has brought an overall uplifting and supportive touch to my personal presence. Even through the inexplicable rough patches that ensue I really very truly love this life. And as capable and beautiful humans it is our job to live, for that is one thing we cannot afford not to do. In the name of the sweet young brother I have lost. 👣❤ #homeiswheretheheartis

Today marks 3 years since I graduated college. It feels like yesterday and yet, with all the growth, it seems like life times. I look back at how I used to base my worth on others’ opinions of me. And how now I’ve learned to put self love first. I’ve learned to know that I am worthy, regardless of what I do or achieve every day because my worthiness comes from within. From my heart, soul, kindness, compassion, courage, vulnerability, love and not from whether or not my little corner of life fits into society’s image of perfection. I look at how I felt like a robot in that societal machine, walking to class, waiting to be told how good my work is by someone else. And then I smile at how I now live- by MY passions, MY heart, MY needs. I look at how I engaged in many “taking the edge off” actions to keep myself from my shadows. Like many, I drank to escape the stress, instead of taking the time to mindfully rejuvenate my soul. I made myself busy in every moment in hopes I could outrun those shadows that were waiting to be seen. Not realizing that only in going through the darkness could I understand and bring light to it. I used to deny “negative” emotions. Believing I was less worthy if I succumbed to anger, sadness or fear, not realizing numbing those also numbed the positive and disconnected me from myself and others. Every day, it is a deliberate effort to not give in to my old tendencies and default to people pleasing, feelings of not enough, stoicism. It is a conscious decision to recognize numbing actions and how ‘not enough’ causes shame, to have courage to set social boundaries, let myself be seen, feel my emotions and get to know my shadow side. And every day that I can, because of course we’re not perfect and some days default just feels good, I tell that self hiding, numbing, criticizing voice to hit the road. And I instead choose to feel, rest, be quiet when I want to be, cry when I need to and I decide I’m worthy regardless of my desire to default or my extra sensitivity or my extra tears or my intensity and it requires constant vigilance to change this dialogue. But I’ve never felt more connected or loved, because I’m connected to and love myself❤️
I’m so glad that he is always up for doing crazy things with me like hiking 20 miles with 3 toddles to insanely beautiful places! -
