Life's Song

Hello there, dear you. Before I start sharing with you my life, I think you deserve to know at least a little about me, don't you? I don't know if you'll stay and see me walk through some of the greatest adventures I'll embark on, but hey, I'm just glad you're here right now.

I'm... Admittedly a perfectionist. But also a procrastinator, which if you are both of these things at once, will understand too the dilemma at which you take on life. I'm still learning, to be less of both of these things now and find a nice balance. It's really why I've created this online adventure journal: To remind myself to always be brave, that life is not made up of perfect moments and it's okay. 

Sooo it's 2016 and I'm 21 (turning 22) this year. An overwhelming part of my life's passions include animals, but beyond that a myriad of other things. I love capturing moments, love being captured in the moment. I love the blessing to be able to whip up meals for people I love. I love listening to people's stories and seeing their eyes light up, or their eyes stare vulnerably back at you as they let their walls come down. 

Most of all, I love adventures. Throw me on a trail and you'll find me drawn towards the unchartered areas - through the trees, under the brambles, even if it means getting lost. It's there I find myself anyway. Amidst the confusion, the unknown, the fear and the pain. But these moments aren't perfect, and I've tried so hard to hide them. I'm going to try my best not to anymore, though.

Let's see how that goes: Learning not to compare my behind-the-scenes with someone else's highlight reel. If ever I wish anything for you, it is the same. To love not just your highlight reel, but your behind-the-scenes, the things you don't tell others about, the things that haunt you and break you. But also, the things that make you. 

Love always,
