a plant based - holistic living - oily loving - barefoot photographer
who loves to share and connect the world with all that mother earth has gifted us.
The gifts of the earth that we sometimes look over the fence searching for
but are right under our nose every single day.
I am here on a Mission;
to Lead by Example and Inspire as many people as I can along the way.
Coming from an unhealthy and somewhat unusual childhood of moving houses, schools and even states.
A childhood that not only lacked a father, but solid friendships, and a mindset that self-loving wasn't important, but pleasing everyone else was.
It seemed like a long road to the end to recover what this body was designed for,
but over ten years on and the end of the road is near.
I am home.
My conscious, health loving journey started once I woke up and removed myself
from the toxic life I was living.
I was ready and that's when I dove in.
This journey had to begin with the elimination process first..
Eliminating not only the foods that weren't agreeing with my body and covered with synthetic chemicals,
but the negative 'friendships' that weren't empowering to any soul.
I had to start loving myself, before I could love anyone else.
All while having my beautiful husband (then boyfriend) by my side each step of the way,
allowing me to find those feet I had to plant on the earth.
And that, I did.
With a passion for animals, plants and all things natural in this wide world,
my journey seemed so much closer to contentment.
I woke up and realized that we often look past the avenues that are right here for us,
the valleys right here in our backyards.
The plants we can so easily grow from a seedling to a mature and healthy loving vegetable.
The abundance that is going to nourish not only our bellies, but our souls too.
They are here to make our tummies happy and our souls shine like sunlight.
By all means, my journey has not been a quick and easy 'transformation'.
This was a lifestyle that I loved embracing but I soon realized;
it doesn't happen over night.
Its the small steps that do and that is all it takes.
Every day was a new day and that meant
a new opportunity to make another small change
to the life I had dreamed of,
the body I was proud of,
the friendships that were nurturing to my soul,
and in return...
I found the person I loved to SHINE.
My mission now is to educate and inspire
as many beautiful humans as I can.
To allow them to create the healthy life they have always thought to be too hard.
To empower men and women to live the lives they have always dreamed of.
To show you that it is possible.
It is so easy and
it is already done,
you just have to say yes!
"My success is an inspiration to others"
When I read this quote recently, I felt it rush through my bones.
Through each and every cell of my body.
We are here to empower one another and lift each other UP.
When rising another; WE RISE TOO.
So let's share this journey together.
Let's BE THE CHANGE this world needs.
And lets RISE TOGETHER.
