Travel Light

Life seems at times to pass us by….days, weeks, and months seem to go by in an instant. We drive to work or school and wonder how we really got there, …aware that we weren’t really aware. Our minds are filled with thoughts, and life keeps passing us by.  In yoga we link our breath with our movements helping us to to stay  grounded, self aware, and present in our practice.  And, in my mind, with the hopes of keeping this presence after the practice.  Our minds must learn to flow like our breath,  keeping us in the present moment, and not worried about our past or what may happen in the future.  This is the hope of traveling light, free of everything except the present moment, taking hold of our lives – as it is now.

“About Me” Update

Wow it’s been a little over two years since I started my blog, and I’ve been thinking it’s time to update my “About Goldi” section, and after just reading it, I can’t believe how far I’ve come, and how I’ve received everything that I wanted for my “just right” life.  Except maybe not in the exact way that I was envisioning it.

For example I’ve had sooooo many friends and family around me. But when you’ve come from a drought, it’s felt like a sudden, heavy, rain shower that’s lasted for days and days, leaving you feeling totally unprepared. When what I was thinking of was more of a steady drizzle that you see is coming, but it’s perfect, just the way it is.

I talked of traveling, and in the last month I’ve been to the city of Santiago, and the desert of San Pedro de Atacama, Chile, where I stayed in Hostels, sand boarded, saw a beautiful cactus forest, and spent time in a natural hot springs. I walked on the vast an seemingly never ending salt flats. I stood lake side and watched pink flamingos fly overhead as the sun was setting, with the awe inspiring views of the volcanic mountains in the distance mimicked back in the reflection on the lake. I saw magnificent sunsets while at grand canyons and valleys, and stood at night, looking up at more stars than I’ve ever seen. Where just being there, makes you feel the grateful energy of being alive. I toured the Southern states of the USA going through Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Kentucky, Alabama, and finding the small city there, with the coolest tag line – Boaz, Alabama – The City of Possibilities.  I ended my travels in the white sands of Bimini, Bahamas, where we relaxed, then snorkeled and swam in the turquoise waters, in what seemed like our own life size fish bowl.

And, I did find a love that I’m sure will last a lifetime. He’s like what I imagine a prince to be, from all of my fairy-tale books of my youth.  He is handsome, kind, caring, compassionate, loving, brings me coffee in bed, and says he will always love and take care of me.  “I promise, I promise, I promise”.

I’m writing twenty books in my head, and a few blog post online, and I’m sure the books will get on paper when the time is right.  When I started writing the blog I was evasive on my “about me” page mainly because I was at the lowest point I could possibly get. I had made a small fortune, and then lost it all – houses, acres of land, and cash. I had been living away from my family for 30 years, and then single for ten.  Sacrificing for my job, my children, my community, and my friends,  hoping I was making life better, I was generous to many, and yet was so tired and alone.  I was so unhappy, I knew I couldn’t remain focused on that, and ever live a happy life.  I needed a shift.  I needed Happy. Happy thoughts, Happy words, Happy news, and thats how this blog was born – and it worked.  I lost myself in success and found myself in my failure.

I was looking for my perfect life.  I believed it was possible, and then I started living it.

My hope is that you, and each and every person that reads my blog, finds there unique and perfect life. And, that what I write, helps, and inspires you to live a life that’s “just right” for you.

A Perfect Life

My passion is apparent if you’ve been reading my post, it’s that we create and live our perfect life, the life that is “just right” for us.  It’s tailored made to suit us perfectly. Most of the post read that’s its about going after something big, something that we want to attain in the pursuit.  The truth is the joy and happiness comes not from the attainment but in the doing. My goal is to travel and write, and I admit I’m not traveling and writing yet like I see it in my mind; but I’m happy now, because I’m writing. I’m doing what it is that I’m passionate about.  I’m not putting it off. I’m living it now.

I also want to be clear that a perfect life can be the one your living… we all have different wants, desires, needs, and passions.  I have a friend who is very happy with her life as a wife, mother, and friend.  She is the glue, keeping us all in touch, and feeling the love.  She takes great pride in the life she leads, and all of us who know her,  are better off because of it.

It doesn’t matter what you do, it’s how you do it…so however you choose to live your life – it’s perfect!
