Here's a little story...
I recently had what you might call a "light switch" moment last December. I asked myself one simple question, "If I could wake up tomorrow and do anything, what would that be?" Well, it wasn't commuting to our office everyday, so I resigned amicably and bought a 1-way ticket to Puerto Rico. I spent 2 months working on primitive skills like building fires, spear fishing and learning how to machete coconuts (still have all my fingers so that's a plus.) From there I traveled through Costa Rica, Mexico and then tore through a bunch of States back home. Needless to say I love adventure. I love/ride motorcycles, random camping trips and traveling. I would describe myself as grounded and passionate...but I don't love making plans all the time. I like letting life unfold itself as it's supposed to happen, without the stress and pressure of MAKING it happen!
I live a very un-anxiety (not grammatically correct) filled life...it's too short! You'll find me at the middle seat of a dive bar or walking around an exotic wood lumber yard searching for my next table making project. I like learning new things...and will watch/read endless amounts of videos/books to learn them.
I'd also like to say how much I value the importance of living in my own truth. I am honest with myself, therefore I am honest with those around me. We have a tendency (me included) to get wrapped up in the minutia of the day to day nonsense, losing perspective on what life's actually about. We end up creating elaborate stories, personas, and definitions of who we are just to shield ourselves from the judgement of the outside world...and I think that puts a lot of strain on our spirit. Mark Twain once said said, "If you tell the truth, you never have to remember anything." And I like that :)
So if any of this personality resonates with you, write me a message...I am always down to at least say a little hello.
Oh, and if you REALLY want to know what sums up my perspective...then google this: TED talk Gratitude. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXDMoiEkyuQ
