Words man, and this English language none the less. So much freedom, such an extensive ability to manipulate our projections of thought. We can literally alter the very fabrication of any given concept, simply by adjusting the words we use to describe said concept. I am so fascinated by them, and continually find myself awestruck … Continue reading What is my purpose?
Goodbyes suck! Actually, I don’t even really believe in them. Never goodbye right, just, “see you later”. I am however about to ‘leave’ for what is planned to be at least the next 3-5 years, and honestly don’t know if I’ll ever seriously return to the United States of America. With this, I feel compelled … Continue reading Never Goodbye
Thursday mid afternoon and the sun was hot, a crispness to the breath that one only finds in the spring time of the Pacific Northwest. As I walked through the yard, dry grass scratching at my feet, aimlessly trying to piece my life back together, it dawned on me that I had been awake for … Continue reading Zen and the Art of TBC Baking
An age old question, is the glass half empty, or half full? I find myself highly intrigued by this philosophical metaphor, intended to represent the progression of life.

Regardless, the magnitude by which it exists and controls your mental psyche, is entirely up to you. Stress is a choice! … Continue reading Stress is a Choice
I quit drinking just over 15 months ago. Around the four month mark I fell into this really beautiful relationship, and found myself feeling thoroughly convinced that I had it all figured out. Six months later that relationship disassembled, leaving me incredibly confused. I was almost a year sober now but immediately felt very similarly … Continue reading Finding Zen in a Sea of Chaos
As I transfer into this young age of twenty-seven, I find myself sitting somewhere I honestly never thought I would be. Maintaining a blog, where I write about things like spirituality and sobriety. Sitting here, reflecting on my past, trying to connect the dots and just getting lost in the fog. I realize I've seriously … Continue reading 27 years young
I've been in a state of pure bliss for the past 20 days, living this heavenly life of yoga, meditation, and surf, on the beautiful island of Bali. Life is as simple as it could get, and I couldn't possibly be happier. Then, I randomly leave my debit card in an ATM, and it's definitely … Continue reading Angels in Boracay
