About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Learning French! Exploring music, travelling the world, meeting people and studying LIFE.

ABOUT ME

I love, I laugh, I play, I hit life head on.
I ponder everything.
I'm a bit nuts but also essentially an exceptionally tranquil being.
An Aquarius Water Rooster, Yellow Rhythmic Sun- if that interests you.

PHILOSOPHY

Many!
I love this quote I found on the wall of a reggae bar in Laos- 'Life is like a book, those who not travel read only one page.'
More quotes I love-
'Fear, like joy, usually means you're exactly where you should be, learning what your ready to learn, about to become more than who you were... (Actually, your always where you should be, the point being, just because you fear something, doesn't mean you should avoid it.... usually.)'
'Be who you are and say what you feel. Cause those who mind don't matter and those who matter dont mind!' - Dr. Seuss.
You and the Universe are one, therefore anything you chose to manifest can be manifested through sending the intention into your extended Self.
(Essentially, thats how it stands at the moment)
