What's your spirit animal? #tigereyes #spirithoods #fauxfur
~
I am tremendously excited to be working with @spirithoods while on my trip to Alaska. They make beautiful faux fur (100% fake fur) coats, hoods, and blanks.  But what makes this company special is their commitment to honoring the animals which these hoods emulate. 10% of every purchase helps protect endangered animals. And as you probably know from my work with the elephant sanctuaries, that is a cause that is near and dear to my heart. So before anyone sees these wonderfully made items and leaves a strongly worded comment; we are on the same team.  I love the nature and all of its creatures in it.

Second, I am so excited for my adventure plans this year, and the closest one being Aurora chasing in Alaska. In every trip I take and every adventure I go on, I aim to share pieces of this beautiful place we all call home. On my trip to see the monarch migration, friend's I made laughed when I explained that I was there because it was something on my bucket list. I was decades younger than anyone in the group and it was determined I was too young to have a bucket list.
But the point has never been to wait until life has passed you by to experience it. And I certainly do not want to wait until I am in the twilight years to do and experience all the things that take your breath away.
I live for the moments that remind you how small you are, that kill the ego and allow your soul to bloom.

Continually I am reminded not to be distracted by the destination. It's the journey and the droplets of authentic joy along the way that matter.

Some of you may know that while also being an avid traveler and creator I have the privilege of working as a dancer for a pop artist. It's such an amazing opportunity and has afforded me things I couldn't have dreamed of, but this year is the last year before I make the leap to start making content like this full time.  It is both bittersweet and a massive test of faith. But a good friend once told me, you can live a small life of comfort or one of adventure and faith. I choose the latter.

Thanks for all the love and support everybody!!! I'm planning another trip to Alaska! Who wants to come with me? Tag who you would bring!

Seeing the northern lights was something I always wanted to do. A bucket list item for sure. But last year I decided no more waiting to do Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. -Marcel Proust

I am still on a high from the amazing day I had yesterday! If you missed my live streams, I basically got to ride off into the sunset in a Rolls Royce with the best human beings ever. And this after playing with puppies all day 🐶 but the point of all this is to choose your tribe wisely and invest in those friendships! They make all the difference in this journey called life. @taylorsaxelby @bc_serna @nicolebalsamophoto Tag someone you would get lost with :)

When my journey gets difficult (and believe me it does), I have a literal dialogue with myself.  I don't just listen to my worries and fears, I talk back. I remind myself why I'm doing all that I do, because if I stay in it, then time becomes my ally.

For one day a week I lay it all down to remind my soul that I am more than my successes and my failures.
