What’s my story? - I am often asked about myself and watch as eyes widen in amazement while I recite the boilerplate of my current epoch: “I’m nomadic. Fully, since last May. I work online. Digital marketing and copywriting. Mostly Europe, the Caribbean and the states. Yes, blessed.” I say, answering their questions, asked and unasked. - Last July, I was hypnotized. Either that or I took a nap... coincidentally falling asleep during the first count and awaking precisely to the sound of the second count. - When I came back to full consciousness, I was told I had been instructed to read the story of my life and write the next chapter. I was warned that I’d be in a hyper-energetic state for the next 24-48 hours and to pay close attention to my thoughts and feelings. So I did. - I couldn’t quite tap into reading what I’d written. Only one thing was clear: I had not written my current partner into the next chapter. Three weeks later, that relationship ended. I still can’t decide if that was a self-fulfilling prophecy or not. I know I had no conscious intention to end it, I even actively made moves to preserve it. But alas, it was not written and thus ended. - [Insert your belief here: God, universe, intuition, divine spirit, guardian angel, fairy godmother] Whatever it may be, there’s an enigmatic guiding force that pushes us to do what our feeble conscious minds refuse to do. - As I move forward with this nomadic thing: embracing the feelings of otherness and insecurity that mirror those of freedom and oneness, I’ll continue to write my story as it happens...until the next time hypnosis happens. Which is soon I hope, because that ish was dope. - #remotework #nomadlife #digitalnomad #homeful #bigchop #hypnotism #hypnotherapy
Going through changes. In early December, a friend pointed out to me that although every New Year has a message of change, 2019 had a particular message of positivity and empowerment. At first, I didn’t know if I agreed. But, as I read more and more NYE posts, I did notice an increased amount of consciousness on my feed. Admittedly, it could be due to my carefully curated feed. But maybe, just maybe... could it be that we as a generation, a society, a human race, are going through [positive] changes? I saw more people using the words ‘embrace’ and ‘accept’ than ‘change’ and ‘make.’ I hope my friend’s theory holds up. I myself have shed many social constructs and have entered a rabbit hole of self discovery that will [hopefully] lead to a deeper level of comfort. I know there’s a loooong way to go. I’m in it for the long haul. 🐇 🕳 Cutting my hair was something I’ve planned to do since high school. I knew that once I graduated college, the social pressures of conformity would lessen. I wanted to get to know the curls I’ve silenced since the first grade. To cut off the manipulated and damaged parts and begin a new way of living; one of embracing and acceptance of what is, letting go of the notions of ‘what should be.’ Damn right this is symbolism for my entire life. In 2014, I legitimately described myself as “the happiest girl alive” and I totally was. Since 2016, I’ve drifted further and further from happiness. To an abyss of apathy, sadness and regret... tell me, could you tell? (For those of you who think my life is just travel and fun, wrongo. That’s what I publish bc that’s the life I want to remember, not the deep dark cracks in between) I haven’t been able to process emotion for like 2 years now. I’m ready to call up all the emotions I shoved down to ‘get through it.’ I call it my file cabinet. It’s time to pull out all the files, read them, understand them then SHRED them. I want to go back to being happy, of course. But hell, I’ll settle for simply being able to feeeel my feelings. I’m determined to. So forget the notion of a ‘new me’ I want to welcome the old me, or more accurately: the only me. Which you are you?
This is a much overdue Sean Appreciation Post. If you’re looking for inspiration on how to be an incredible friend, look to this guy. Not only did he score us VIP tix to see my favorite band, with a meet and greet 😭😍🙈 but a few days later, he hopped on a plane to Dominican Republic to help me fix up an apartment; where he led the charge and did most of the heavy lifting (both figuratively and literally) expecting nothing in return. I don’t know what I did to deserve a friend like Sean, but I’m infinitely grateful. I can only aspire to be as good a friend to the people in my life, as he’s been to me. Gracias amigo, te amo muchísimo.
Exploring like Columbus (without the genocide, enslavement and rape)
What does it mean to be a creative mind? Every thought has 3 different versions. A window is not just a window. It is a traverser of light. A portal to both public and private. A square but also two rectangles.
