I've always loved sunshine and fresh air, but it wasn't until I truly gave myself up to the possibilities of life that I discovered the magnitude of support in nature. I struggled with finding my 'soul purpose' and was frustrated by my lack to break free from being everybody's someone and nothing for myself. I had a deep yearning to go off on a 'eat, love, pray' journey, but realized that wherever you go, there you are. I decided to save time and the expense of traveling to far-off places and went into the woods! That's why I'm the authentic wanderer.
I walked with the introspective to answer the inevitable “who am I and where do I fit in the universe?” I had no expectations- just an intention to remain open-hearted to what presented itself.
I discovered I could trust love there, because nature gives it unconditionally. There's nothing you need do or say; no dress code - it’s come as you are - perfectly human with all your imperfect fears of being unloving, unlovable or unworthy. Nature will not laugh or ridicule; there are no judgements and it will never abandon you! Here is where you re-learn acceptance and trust of yourself. And that’s when the magic begins! :)
