Words of Wisdom

Rumi Let go of your worries and be completely clear-hearted, like the face of a mirror that contains no images.

I’m a lacto-vegetarian with a healthy obsession for Mexican food and I will never give up cheese, quite possibly because of that. I steal snuggles from Bean the Boy Kitten. Daily parts of my life are paper journaling, talking to my dear sweet momma and sky-gazing. The beach owns me, lock-stock-and-barrel. I’m happier right now than I’ve ever been before and every day I give thanks for it all. *What is the inspiration behind Kind Over Matter?
