Set Your Soul Free.

I woke up this morning and realized something…I don’t have to please everyone.

I really only need to please myself.

I always struggle with wanting to help others pursue their dreams and set mine on the back burner. I’m afraid of hurting someones feelings by telling them “oh, I’m sorry – I’m gonna do my own thing.” I always feel like maybe I shouldn’t do something because they will think I’m just “trying to be like them”…when in reality, that’s just not how I work.

That’s not how the universe works.

I’m a firm believer that EVERYONE is put in your life for a reason – mainly to lead you to your purpose. It makes SENSE that there are people in your life currently and in the past that do similar things, don’t you think?

Today I will no longer be afraid to blaze my own trail because it may upset someone.

I will not sit back and wait another day to pursue my dreams – even if on the outside they may look like someone else’s.

I will not spare my soul another day of hiding its purpose because my brain is afraid.

HERE I COME  WORLD Рin full force, and what a good feeling it is.

OkieGirl Visited New Mexico

Around this time last year I was spontaneously invited on a soul-searching road trip to New Mexico with a friend.

How could I possibly say no? I couldn’t.

We set off for a place she had been many times, where here Grand Pop lived an off the grid lifestyle that she told me all about on our way.

It was a blessing to be able to share these amazing places that were filled with stories and emotion.

This was more than just some road trip to both of us. She needed to find closure and visit her grandpa’s burial, and I needed to free my mind.

 

This was an AMAZING place to free my mind.

Looking over this amazing lake, I felt closer to my God than I ever have before. I felt that everything was 100% zen and that everything made sense. For the first time in a long time I remembered HOW much there was in the world that I have yet to experience. This exact day was the day that I started LIVING every day. Adventures aren’t always just fun little jaunts…sometimes they are much, much more.

I hope that some day you all find a place, or many places, that give you the amazing feeling and experience that this place did for me. I am forever hunting this experience again, and again.

Don’t forget how short this life is, and how many places are left to see!
