My Story

I was born to write, to create, to be a mother. My childhood dream was to become an explorer of elusive lands and write articles for National Geographic. That never happened. Unexpected events, lack of resources (or so, I believed) and the inevitable fear of the unknown are what happened instead.

Of course the story of a life is layered and deep, it can get cluttered and complicated. But we are always presented with a defining moment that invites us to change. I acknowledged that no matter the path chosen, there would be mistakes, but ultimately we’ve only got one shot at living a meaningful life and it’s what I wanted more than anything.

A few years ago, stirrings to be part of a larger picture began to settle in. Was I to explore the world? Was I meant for another land? Was I limiting myself by following the same routine day in and day out? Along with these questions came that thirst for a higher understanding of life and how I intended to live it. During this process, I thought of my children, asking myself: which beliefs could I pass along to them? What were my deepest and most important values? I have always been inspired by people who are capable to live in the present moment, who believe that every minute spent here on Earth is precious and not to be wasted. It really got me thinking, what can I do to live my life to the fullest?

I am a passionate believer and I know that God has a plan for each and every one of us. I also know that we have to set our destiny in motion. We have to plant that seed and take good care of it, for eventually a dream will grow from it.  

As I continue this marvelous journey, I recognize that every day is an extraordinary gift. The writings you will find here are all about the experiences that have enriched my life and made it a happier journey. It’s about finding purpose, getting creative, doing the things we love, planning adventures, making a home to be proud of and taking care of ourselves and the ones we love.
