About Me

CURRENT MISSION

improve building skills, and improve my massage skills.

ABOUT ME

i don't know everything about myself. but here is a bit i do know, i'm kara and i'm not sure where i'm going but i really love where i am. i've been out of canada since april 2010, and intend to continue moving. i am embracing a freedom i have always dreamt of and it is bitter sweet in the most beautiful ways. i'm most interested in people and their alternative ways of living. i'm trying to break the cycle of consumerism in my life and live for free as much as possible. without those materials i've learnt to share the genuine and fundamental things in life with the wonderful people i meet:). did i mention im happy and giddy? well i am!

PHILOSOPHY

for what it's worth, it's never too late or too early to be whoever you want to be. there's no time limit, stop whenever you want. you can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. we can make the best or the worst of it. i hope you make the best of it. and i hope you see things that startle you. i hope you feel things you never felt before. i hope you meet people with a different point of view. i hope you live a life you're proud of. if you find that you're not, i hope you have the strength to start all over again.

everything is a cycle, you've got to let it come to you
and when it does you will know what to do.
