happy 20 fourteen

Oh how energizing the start of a new year can feel. Setting goals, committing to projects & preparing for the adventures ahead always seem to stimulate my spirit. One thing I'm working to be more mindful of this go-around is less time thinking about what's coming & more focus on the present moments. This realization has come so blatantly to me through the process of planning a wedding- too often I have found myself caught up in the end result that I have missed opportunities to savor the sweet moments along the way. To me, it's the genuine, surprising, and simple moments along the way that make the larger occasions what they are.

To slow down & embrace the stepping stones of the exciting things in store I'm being more intentional about journaling, reflecting, meditating, connecting with others, and blogging. For the moments when I'm tired, or feel that my plate is spilling over, I am slowly building my consciousness & holding on to my personal commitments- even if it means two sentences in a notebook to capture my thoughts at the end of a very long day, or a small chat with an old friend between meetings. I'm striving to ensure that the most important things to me remain my top priorities. 

Wherever the black & white text of this simple little "blog" end up my hope is to continue to capture & share my "ah-ha" moments, honest sentiments, small & large victories, & general thoughts about life, love & the pursuit of happiness. 

right now & today-


  1. So excited you're back to blogging.. I've been following along on Insta (you know I've been following for a few years!!) CONGRATS ON THE ENGAGEMENT! xoxo

    1. Thank you sweet Rachel! Ah I'm so excited to reconnect as well- it's been far too long. Thank you for the congratulations, we are so excited! Cheers to a beautiful year ahead to you!!

  2. Super happy to see you back! Love the new header! 2014 is going to be an AMAZING year. I can feel it.

  3. My Boyfriend of 5 years left me when I needed him most, I went through so much and it was bad I nearly committed suicide in August, I lost 4 stone in weight. I could not take it anymore. I was fired from my new job for gross misconduct before moving out of my home because I could not afford that much. My situation got worsen when I heard my Boyfriend moved his new Girlfriend into his home, I was so hurt, I fainted on the street and then rushed to the hospital. I surprised how he did that just after 2 weeks before he was claiming he loved me. I miss him, I love him and hate him all in one.
    Finally, I grabbed the life changing opportunity Dr. Wakina offered. The spiritual father was annoyed by my present condition after his readings, he discovered my Boyfriend was meant for me and was forcefully snatched. With faith and hope for a new beginning, I permitted Dr. Wakina to cast the love spell. The result of the spell was fantastic. I am proud I fought for love and conquered. Everything I lost has been restored. We have been living peacefully as couple for months.
    I encourage you to also grab your life changing opportunity by emailing Dr. Wakina via: dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com
