Some Days, being a World Traveller Super Hero has it’s Cost…

Hello my yogis!!! Wow. You know, I have something to write here pretty well every single day….and then every single day I think that the thoughts in my head won’t make nearly as good a blog post as a stream of consciousness…so I don’t end up writing…HOWEVER, today, it all came together. 

I have been a traveller, a wanderer, a nomad, an explorer and an enjoyer of all places for the past 10 years or so. I have travelled the World, seen places, met people and have sought adventure and fulfillment in the seeing of new places and the enjoyment of the vast planet Earth. I have loved my life. I love my life. I have never had to work in a desk job (which, please no offence to anyone, is my complete nemesis), I get to witness inspiration and determination EVERY SINGLE DAY which is MIND BLOWING! However, with these extraordinary amazing awesome fantastic life adventures I get to have…there is the sometimes saddening events of family that I am absent for. I love my family. We are an eclectic group. We are diverse in our personalities and interests…but we like to celebrate eachother, and today I missed such an event. 

Today my mom had her convocation ceremony to honour her in EARNING her Masters degree, and being honoured for her hard work and determination over the past 2 years of study. For as long as I can remember, my mom has always wanted to have her Masters degree. She is a smart and amazing woman who has given and devoted her life to her family (as I am seeing is the biggest gift of the strongest women) and has now finally come to realize a life-long goal. She is, and always has been my biggest supporter and one of my biggest inspirations.

So, here I am. Living my life as an adventurer and as a yogi of the world. I get to be in a far away land and still get to  experience the joys of the people who are in my life…..through the modern technologies of the the internet!!! I was not able to be with my family today in Canada, but though the benefits of the Modern Age, I didn’t miss a minute!

I had the livestream going on the computer and was FaceTiming with my sissycousin!! It was awesome. I mean..don’t get me wrong, BEING THERE would have been the MOST awesome, but this was a pretty awesome second best.

So, a good event for realizing balance between having my life as I want to live it AND being able to be wherever I want to be at any given moment!! It truly is amazing.  

Thank you, world and universe, for being so diverse in your technologies. Thank you, Family, for being so supportive in my plight to spread my wings. Thank you Mama, for being so driven and for being SO. FUCKING. SMART. that I can’t help but feel inspired to be equally as amazing as it is in my GENES!!!

Don’t be afraid, yogis…you can have it ALL…be there and be everywhere. 

I love you.
