Lately I am inspired. Inspired by my recent travels, by following my bliss. Inspired by life. Inspired by the dream catchers I have been creating (see below). I am inspired to live my dreams.
What do you dream of? If you could do anything what would it be? If money, responsibilities and fear did not stand in the way what would you do? Where does your mind go when it wanders? If today was your last day on earth what would you do? And why are you waiting? We have this one life, lets make the most of it. Go and catch your dream my lovelies…
Happy March my darlings. Can you believe it’s already March!
Last week I posted about slowing down and enjoying life. This thought has resonated deeply with me, maybe it’s due to the fact that I am currently reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. From the instant I picked up the book I have been inspired. If you haven’t read the book, read it! “Gretchen Rubin had an epiphany one rainy afternoon in the unlikeliest of places: a city bus.”The days are long, but the years are short,” she realized. “Time is passing, and I’m not focusing enough on the things that really matter.” In that moment, she decided to dedicate a year to her happiness project.”
I have decided to have a monthly mantra; a goal or a group of goals that I wish to work on for the month. Inspired by the idea of slowing down and enjoying the moment, the mantra’s for March are: life is not a “to do” list, stop & smell the roses and enjoy the simple things.
Life is not a “to do” list: I love love love lists. Not only do they keep me organized, but they keep me sane as well. I have lists for everything. As soon as I am feeling a little overwhelmed or stressed I make a list. It’s just my thing, something I do. I jam pack my weekends with “to do’s” instead of just enjoying the time off and going with the flow. Crossing items off my list brings me joy, but I am so eager to cross items off my list that I am beginning to question my obsession with list making. When is enough, enough? It’s time to slow down and enjoy the moment.
Stop & smell the roses: this goal/mantra goes right along with list making. I am so eager to get to the next moment. I vow to stop and smell the roses literally this month, if there is a rose I will smell it!
Enjoy the simple things: the simple things bring me the most happiness; a walk on the beach, an amazing yoga class, good conversation, reading and drinking coffee in bed on a Saturday morning.

“The Boho Life” is the life I imagine living. A life in which I am liberated from the farces of society. A life in which I am mentally and psychically free. A life in which I let my artistic soul shine. A life in which I travel often. A life in which I live by the ideals of truth, freedom and love. It is the life I inspire to live everyday.
