So many people feel an inexplicable (to me) anxiety to fly. It is inexplicable as to me flying is probably the utmost liberation. I love the whole experience – the excitement of going somewhere new, the feeling of a new beginning, the taste of adventure and mainly – the relaxing feeling throughout the whole experience. Why relaxing? It is this sensation of being on top of all the everyday life, of all the problems, all the clutter, even on top of my mind sometimes. All is left behind, below. Here, on top of the world (literary), it is peaceful and warm and nothing can reach hold of you. And even when you get back down, somewhere new or even back from where you started it does not feel like being back to square one. I am still high from the experience! No wonder they say traveling is the ultimate investment, which truly enriches you!

''the kind of girl who prefers to have salt and sun drenched hair - a scalp (and bed) full of sand.
She is brought to life and energized by sunshine and will willingly play and explore in it from rise to set. She has hopes and dreams too big to fathom.
She knows there are limitations, but chooses to challenge them regardless.
She loves nothing more than a thorough belly laugh -she feels it is exercise for her soul.
Her mind thinks too deeply making her curious about everything; she craves that knowledge and desires the understanding.
She is spontaneous and erratic.
She is emotional and irrational - constantly indecisive and hyperactive - making her impossible to understand and help.
She is a wanderer and a dreamer; roaming the earth barefoot, exploring it's beauty and wonders.''

♥ You can’t leave where you are until you decide where you would rather be.
♥ Everything in life is a lesson; if you keep repeating the same pattern, you haven’t passed the lesson. We move forward in life by getting the lessons.
♥ Life doesn’t hurt, expectations do. Things don’t happen to us, they happen for us.
♥ You must make a choice to take a chance, or things will never change.
♥ You don’t always need a grand plan, just take a breath, let go and be open to what happens.
♥ Progress will sometimes look like a lot of failures. We have to learn what doesn’t work in order to get to what does. Don’t give up, you are closer than you think.
♥ There's a difference between giving up and knowing when you've had enough. Know when enough is enough.
♥ Setbacks are miracles in disguise. Always believe that things are working out in your favor.
♥ Your heart is to be trusted. It knows what your head has yet to figure out.
♥ When you stop chasing what your mind wants you will get what your soul needs.
Let go of the ego and watch a life full of abundance and magic reveal itself to you. Let go of the false desire for perfection and see how slowly you will fall for this perfectly imperfect one-of-a-kind beautiful human you are!
♥ All thoughts that don’t make you feel empowered and strong
♥ Feeling guilty for doing what you truly want to do
♥ Fear of the unknown; take one step and watch the path reveal itself
♥ Blaming anyone for anything – either accept it or change it
♥ Thinking everyone is happier or more successful
♥ There is a right OR wrong way
♥ Cheating on the future with the past
♥ Trying to change people
♥ Trying to fit, be accepted, be liked by others
"Healing yourself from within requires you to be conscious of the things you are doing and what you are putting into your body. It requires you to really think about the stress you are experiencing rather than carrying it around with you, and to find ways to dissipate it. To heal yourself from within requires a holistic approach; several systems depend on one another within your body for balance and health. When you work to balance your mind and your at the same time, you are much more likely to experience better health and healing. The amazing thing by starting to tackle one area, you end up benefiting other areas. Healing yourself takes time. Breathe. Clean up your diet. Learn to love yourself and make mindful decisions that will demonstrate that you do love yourself (you deserve it!) With time you will notice that you feel better and better."
The above is from a post, written by the gorgeous nutritionist Kimberley Snyder. Her blog posts are really inspiring. Making conscious changes, taking responsibility for my actions and the way they make me feel has really lead the way to some amazing revelations. Follow up your plan and listen to what your body and soul are telling you! That's all that matters. There is a greater power within you waiting to be revealed. Believe in yourself! Only you have the power to change your life!
