Post image for Blogger Diary: The Wisdom Of Insecurity

I did something last week that I rarely do.  I took a vacation — a whole week off, with no plans.  Well, the only plans were to drive to my beach house, where I would spend the week relaxing, taking long beach strolls, reading, writing, and just being.  Life is funny…it always has other plans.

To be still. Ahhh! so many of us live fast pace lifestyles. We are taught in America to achieve success at a rapid pace. Go to a good college, get an internship, find a job after college, get married etc. The list goes on and on. But what about personal well-being? I believe that taking care of yourself is key to health and happiness. So let's learn to take time for ourselves. This could be simple as taking walk out in nature to clear the mind. I personally like to have me time by reading, painting, dancing, or walking by the lake.

I loved this quote: “It is of little use to us to be able to remember and predict if it makes us unable to live fully in the present.” Please se my new line of necklaces here: Yalayalaa.etsy.com xo

Wow, these pictures are gorgeous! I just booked a Tuscany villa rental for 2 weeks for the end of this year so I have been doing a lot of research on things we must see and do while we are there. We are definitely going to have to go to San Gimignano. Thanks for the tip about having to get a car and being a AAA member. That is very helpful. I can't wait to see this for myself.

three years ago I took a two week trip to Italy and we went to have a huge farm style lunch outside in the rolling hills of Tuscany, I don't remember exactly where we went but it was so incredibly beautiful. everyone needs to experience the food, beauty, and culture of Italy...especially the food ;)

If you ever want to take pictures of some spectacular views, New Zealand is a great place to go. It's where The Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit was shot. No green screen.

As part of a year of volunteer service, I lived in community with eight other volunteers where everything from soybeans to stipends was shared. Our goal was to explore the values of simple living, spirituality and social justice as realised through communal living. I was forever amazed by our power. One person often falters when trying to accomplish something alone, but together nothing is daunting. What we lacked in cash we made up for in collective creativity. It altered my perception of reality. I am forever enamoured with people who choose to live with intention, so I am very grateful to have learned of Mehosh's experience. I have written about people whom I feel make modern lifestyle choices that share similar sentiments (including the author of this post!) here: http://girlfromthehillcountry.blogspot.com/2013/09/life-on-purpose-study-of-integrity.html Thank you for the constant inspiration. xxo

Post image for Blogger Diary: A Weekend Away

When you live in a city, you are constantly surrounded by things; people, buildings, noises… it never seems to stop. Sometimes it’s nice to leave it all behind and get away. The feeling of open space and looking out at landscape that goes on for miles is something that truly inspires me. I spent a lot of time traveling out west growing up, and I often yearn for the beautiful views that exist there. Read more »
