Lately it feels like everything has been taken out from under my feet.

And I mean this in the best way possible.

It’s as if all I thought I knew has gone out the window. I’m no longer sticking my head in the sand voluntarily but am rising up to the challenge, taking on new projects and immersing myself in what’s going on around me. Be it good, bad or otherwise. Before startingt my teacher training, I thought I was living pretty honestly – with myself and others. I also thought I knew where I was taking myself career wise and personally. Well that all quickly flew out the window as I dove deep in to the Yamas, Niyamas and the Subtle Body. Continue reading “Saucha”

An Oregon Road Trip – Nov 04 2018

Painted Hills, Oregon
Oregon in a weekend

I’m still reeling after the weekend. How could I have forgotten that I live in one of the most beautiful places in the USA? I spent 80% of my summer in different states so this weekend was truly a reminder of what a playground Oregon is. That you can take off without a plan and land in literally a magical place is incredible. No signal. No crazies. No stress. The last couple of weeks (or months really) have been pretty  hectic so when himself asked ‘What do you want to do this weekend?’, my immediate thought was, switch off.

Memorial Weekend

I can’t believe that a year has passed already since my move to Portland. Time has gone so fast and I can nearly say to the hour of the day what I was doing this time last year (chilling out with my cousin in Newport! 🙂 ). I had moved here right on Memorial weekend and my timing couldn’t of been better. Last year I did the Rose Festival thing and drank my way through all of the breweries the city had to offer. 2017’s weekend went slightly different.

Tedx PDX

Tedx Portland

Since I joined Inavero, I’ve been waiting to go to Tedx in Portland. Rosemarie, my old manager in Adecco had told me about it before and I was really looking forward to seeing some speakers. The event definitely did not disappoint. I was warned to have tissues at the ready because the day itself is an emotional rollercoaster.

Ted began in 1984 as a conference where speakers came and spread beautiful ideas in 18 minutes or less. Tedx is community based with a Ted-like experience. It first came to Portland 7 years ago and has built a crowd from 700 to 3000 filling out the Keller Auditorium. I honestly didn’t know what to expect but the day went seamlessly. I was skeptical of the organizers  ability to sit, feed and water 3000 people but they managed it doing a great job. Continue reading “Tedx PDX”
