“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”
—Lao Tzu

I learned a few lessons from the wind: everything is temporary. One minute it’s there then it isn’t. It naturally moves. It’s not forced. It does not ask for attention. It’s just in its motion. It stays in its lane until it takes a turn to its true direction. You can’t see it. But you can feel it. Be like the wind. It is rooted but it flows.

Adulthood taught me so much about varying wavelengths and different vibrations between people, relationships, mentalities and ways to live life. There’s really no one way to live, to think, to be. And this isn’t a how to. I am just speaking from experience. I know at the end of the day, we are all just doing what’s best for us and making decisions that best fits the lifestyle we have. One of the key components to consistent good vibrations is learning to not get attached to ideas and dreams. It’s important to be accepting of the unpredictable. It’s helpful when you are malleable to change. The key is to learn to flow with the natural current of life. The key is to know the difference between a detour and a dead end.

To be honest, I’ve been at my happiest recently. I’m unapologetically in love with life!!! Instead of thinking about the negative parts, I try to think of the positives that will thrive from it. I’m holding on to what holds me. I’m letting go of things that are no longer there. It has only brought me a more rewarding life. And no, I’m not talking about money. I’m talking about louder laughs, carefree moments and deeper, more meaningful connections. That currency in life is priceless.

Balinese Vibes | In My Little Orange Dress

Apologies for the long hiatus, my best friends got married in Bali, Indonesia. We traveled almost 30 hours there and 30 hours back, crossed four time zones twice and landed to three new countries on the way to experience life outside of routine and live in utter simplicity and we would not have it any other way.

Sans make-up and crushing on orange real hard during this trip. Getting ready for the day took no effort without make-up. All I had to do was throw on this little orange dress from Finders Keepers The Label. I wore zero concealer and foundation and just oils and moisturizers every day. It was the most freeing feeling!

I don't know what it is about Asia or anywhere else outside of America but I find myself loving the natural beauty of everything and appreciating more of the little things when I'm there. Maybe it's the blind eye to the idea of modernism or the appeal of simple living and the slow-paced lifestyle that inspire me. But when you're often surrounded by modern architecture in the day-to-day and often updated with what's new in modern technology, you find yourself kind of jaded towards luxurious things and missing out on things that just are.

In Bali, Indonesia, nothing was manmade to look pretty or attractive to the eye. The people were just the absolute nicest. They were just being themselves and living for themselves and their families. From the restaurants we frequented to the Ubud markets (we also frequented) nothing was made to look outside of the Balinese norm. The workers had the same routine everywhere we went – to pray before every shift. And that is SO amazing. Every location stood out to me because they are just beautiful the way they are.

I think that's what made me fall in love with the place.

Here's to my first of many visits, Bali.
