My Life, My Message

My title is a borrowed quote from Mahatma Gandhi. I don’t know a lot about him but when I saw a wall decor in my favorite yoga studio with these words, I can’t take my eyes off of it. I was even wondering if it was for sale. I never asked though. Maybe I should’ve. And that’s the thing, something stopped me from asking. Is it my fear of looking and sounding silly? That feeling that I know nobody there, since I just finally had the courage to go to an actual yoga studio? Whatever it is, something stopped me.

These words are so true for me. I mean, what else do I have, right? You and I? Our messed up, less than ‘pinterest-perfect’ life! And no matter how f***3d I think my life is, I know that someone, out there over the rainbow can relate to me. That you and I, yea are chatting while having coffee some thousand miles apart. That is my intention with this blog. I truly just want to share. I want to share who I am now, what I’ve been through and my future journey.

My only hope is we all respect each other. You respect me, I respect you. You don’t, you will be deleted! haha! This is my space after all.

That’s the thing..

I started blogging back in 2006. I loved it. I would just share anything and everything. From what happened at the office, my silly co-worker, the nice stars formation I saw or video that made me cry. I stopped it because someone, was “peeing all over my space”, and I let it. I wasn’t strong enough to fight for my space. I won’t let anyone stop me from doing what I love to do, what makes me jump out of the bed every morning. And I hope you do the same, my dear lifer.

Love YOUR life. It’s yours, nobody else gets to live it for you!

xo, Van
