We overwhelm ourselves with huge, stupid, anxious questions. For example. . .
What should I do with my life?
Now that is a terrible, awful question.
What should I do with the next 5 minutes of my life? is a much better one.
There is so much opportunity in the small moments of each day.
Connecting With The Keeper of Things Wild
A passage from Clarissa Estes’ book
Do not cringe or make yourself small if you are called the black sheep, the maverick or the lone wolf. Only those with “slow seeing” say a non-conformist is a blight on society.
It has been proven over centuries that being “different” means standing on the edge. It means that one is practically guaranteed to make an original contribution, a useful and stunning contribution to our society and culture.
When seeking guidance, don’t ever listen to the tiny-hearted. Be kind to them, heap them with blessing, cajole them but do not follow their advice.
If you have ever been called defiant, incorrigible, forward, cunning, insurgent, unruly, rebellious, you are on the right track.
In a world where nobody really knows anything, you have the incredible freedom to continually reinvent yourself. Go forth, forge new paths, no matter how strange.

From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be
A case and meditation for raising your vibration. Remember, attitude is everything.
We all have a state of consciousness that when we get to, things just happen effortlessly. We perceive of the reality that is equal to the emotion we feel. You must believe it to see it.
A 21 day high-vibe meditation with Aaron Dougherty
Estonia vs Ethiopia
While planning my next leg of travel, or what I refer to as my Cosmic AF World Tour, I realized that using Instagram as my only source of inspiration about where to visit next was a very bad idea. Coming to grips with my lack of geographical knowledge, I set out to discover more than the photos of turquoise shorelines and high peak mountains depicted in my feed.
Determined to learn about a new place and culture each day, I purchased a book that I am reading each morning to learn more about our world. Like, who knew Kiiking was an actual sport created in Estonia?
I quickly realized that I also needed to see more than the beautiful photos displayed on each page of coffee table books. Using Local Guides Connect with photos that are uploaded to Google maps (real photos by real people) in conjunction with The World, A Traveler’s Guide to the Planet has helped me make better decisions about where my next adventure might be.
