Stop and catch your breath…

Have you had that moment, you know, the one you feel was responsible for changing the path you lead in life? I have. All it took was 1 video. 1 video that a classmate of mine posted on Facebook, and BAM, life as I knew it was over.

Honestly, it changed something in me. It caught my breath, and I swear, I didn’t breathe as I watched in awe of what was on the screen before me. I love these moments, I really do. Finding something that speaks to you in a way that no human has been able to…it’s almost over whelming, and I am so thankful for these small things, that make such a huge impact in my life. Watching it calms me, it makes me free. It centres me like I never understood was possible. A Video, I know, it’s crazy. Just hear me out.

I am one of those people who loves too easily, does too much for others, gives up everything for someone else. I am an old soul, some might even say a lost child. I haven’t fully found my purpose in life. I am still finding myself and finding out what truly makes me happy. So when I do find these little pieces, these little pieces of my heaven, I know that they are clues or pieces that will help me make myself whole. Which is something I long to be, whole. Will it ever happen? I don’t really know. I believe that I know what will make me whole, but I do not know if that is something I may ever be able to face. I am hoping through this journey, I will be able to lead myself home.

So now I will share with you, one of these pieces. This video is titled “The Mountain” by TSO Photography, whom you can find here http://vimeo.com/terjes

I hope it moves you, the way it moved me. Please feel free to share with me, something that has made you stop and catch your breath.

#BlissdomCA 2014

After a long morning at school, and and hour and a half drive, I have finally arrived at BlissdomCA. I’ve been a nervous wreck all day, but as I sit here in my room, eating veggies and dip, and watching the construction workers work on my balcony, I am feeling a little more at ease. This hotel room is beautiful. There are orange accents everywhere which are somehow making me feel at home.

Here’s hoping for smooth sailing all the way through to Sunday. Let the games begin.
